Clipped from Nile Nash over at G & G. This is not trick film work, just a strange mix of dubsteb, the robot and mime action.

Anchors Away


tasty seasonal from Anchor...

HUMMING is an ancient term, used centuries ago to describe both ales and beers. Although its origins are shrouded in mystery, it suits this bold hoppy ale, which we have created to celebrate the anniversary of our first brew at 1705 Mariposa Street. From that very day we were humming!
In 1965, we dedicated ourselves to reviving the nearly bankrupt, almost medieval little San Francisco brewery on 8th Street. By 1977, Anchor's small staff was making five unique beers in its tiny state-of-the-art facility. We purchased an old coffee-roasting plant on Mariposa, overseeing its gradual transformation into our "new" brewery. Finally, on August 13, 1979, our move was complete, we fired up the brewkettle, and Anchor Steam® had a new home—its sixth since 1896.

Hey Mr. Covert, has this made it down to the southland? The Arm recommends....
still not as good as the Great White, but getting there

Be Strong, Be Gentle, Be Beautiful

"Keiko Fukuda is the highest ranking woman in the history of judo. She is the last living student who connects back to judo founder, Jigoro Kano. Fukuda will be 98 on April 12, 2011 and is an amazing inspiration to all."

Sensei Keiko Fukuda still teaches at the dojo she founded at the corner of Castro and 26th St in Noe Valley. Her motto: "Be gentle, kind, and beautiful, yet firm and strong, both mentally and physically."
