Will You Just Watch the Hair?
July 25, 2007
Who knew San Francisco was such a hub? I always just assumed it was filled with strange hippie-type people who had inordinate amounts of time to discuss whether bottled water is good or bad and "if I were a bag, would I be better if I were paper, or plastic? Oh fuck it, we'll just ban them all." The City of San Francisco Stands Up Against Plastic! Also Legos! As they are also plastic. I'm sorry, Jimmy, no toys for you! Have some Lincoln Logs. What? Those are made out of plastic now, too? Crazy. Have a ball made of crumpled paper. Recycled, of course.
What we have is a grid failure and parts of the web zipping away into the ether - no LiveJournal (ack! the emo!), no Craigslist (how will I ever find my evening hookup?), no Netflix (I wanted to see if Danger Mouse was available to rent on DVD yet), no Technorati (now I can claim my popularity rating to be a lot higher than it is). Whatever will we do? Oh, San Francisco, I long to ring your trolley bell and see the Rice A Roni sign creeping up that famous hill, but right now, I just want the good half of my internet back.
