What @2 said, plus,
What SF resident refers to SF as a "town"? It's always The City.
Plus, if you're lucky enough to own in SF, you do not sell.

@21 That's "boiling bunnies" thank you very much.
Feb 27 Jared Bascomb commented on Holy Shit, What Just Happened at the Oscars?.
@20 Exactly how did Tony Curtis, all by his lonesome, do that? There are well over 3000 members of the Academy who vote on all the awards. Tony must have some real superpowers!
Jun 6, 2016 Jared Bascomb commented on Cherdonna's New Show Is an Endurance Test (That I Failed).
Why do the descriptions/reviews of Cherdonna's performances (not to mention Cherdonna herself) remind me of Divine's debut/grand finale performance in Female Trouble? Minus the homicide, but perhaps not the fish and the trampoline.

Oh, and Candye Kane has died.

Jesus fuck, I can't believe supposed adults are arguing about a bunch of comic book "characters".
Grow the fuck up.
Apr 7, 2016 Jared Bascomb commented on Sound Transit Explains Why It Can't Run Trains After 12:35 a.m..
The London Underground ("The Tube") shuts down nightly around midnight for service. Buses replace the more popular lines, and everyone has adapted to the night buses -- pub-crawlers and late-night after-theatre diners share buses the same way they would share the Tube. Seattle will find a way to survive.
Feb 13, 2016 Jared Bascomb commented on Justice Antonin Scalia Is Dead.
I will only paraphrase what the great Bette Davis allegedly said upon hearing of Joan Crawford's passing: "My mother told me to only speak good of the dead. Antonin Scalia is dead. Good."

As for Sperifera@69: Phoebe is good people. You dis her, you make yourself look bad.
Feb 11, 2016 Jared Bascomb commented on Deadpool Is Lots of Fun, but It Does Not Achieve Immortality.
As someone who doesn't give a shit about comic book/superhero movies, I got suckered into watching "Guardians of the Galaxy" because I heard it was not your ordinary superhero movie. Guess what? It was, but with weirder characters (none of whom are more than two-dimensional), an incoherent plotline, and lots of action/explosions signifying nothing. I never did figure out what Glenn Close's character was doing in there or what she was talking about. While watching it, all I could think was "WTF do all these people see in this movie?"

I think I'll take a pass on this one, too. Once burned, . . .

Feb 10, 2016 Jared Bascomb commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: Using "Crazy" Like That Is So Gay, Dan, Really Lame.
@18 Ah, but "cray cray" is just a euphemism derived from "crazy", and as my pastor once told all us pre-teens, euphemisms like "fudge" and "darn" are every bit as bad as the real words / concepts they're replacing. So no "cray cray" for you!
Feb 4, 2016 Jared Bascomb commented on Tell Us What to Do with a Sad Misogynist Who Wants Us to Pay Attention to His Misogyny and Homophobia.
Obviously way to late to this game, but doesn't "Where is the nearest pet shop?" spoken on a dark street corner sound like something out of Monty Python's Hungarian-English dictionary?
