Shepard Fairey's in town

I was only just informed that Shepard Fairey has a show in SF. Why don't you people tell me these things?

Dear people I actually know in real life: We must go to this. I saw his show in NYC, and the full-sized canvas versions of his prints are incredible. I guess he's here until the end of the month? (Which is Tuesday.)

DNA Lounge: Wherein Jesus is spotted in unlikely places.

Photos are now up of the Hubba Hubba Revue "Olde Time Religion" show, hallelujah. Don't miss the animated cartoon.

I found it entertaining that one of the vendors there was only selling a table-full of pasties. I guess that tells you that it's something of an insider crowd... How is it that the pirate store describes themselves? "Purveyors to the Industry", or something like that?

Also: R. Black has outdone himself this time, with his triptych of flyers for the upcoming Goth Week. Collect all three!

Rick Avery is a spamming douchebag.

In response to my third or fourth request (over several years) to have this guy stop filling my (physical) mailbox with his glossy postcards trying to sell me overpriced real estate, I got this reply explaining why he considers it impossible for him to stop spamming me:

Hi Jamie,

I do apologize for not taking you off my list, but it is updated every so often with a master database.

I'm sure you receive other unwanted mail so I am sending you this helpful site where you can take your address off mailing lists:

I hope you find this helpful.


Rick Avery

Sotheby's International Realty
117 Greenwich Street San Francisco, CA 94111

Cell 415-710-5014
Office 415-901-1782
Fax 415-901-1701

Dear Rick Avery,

Please die in a fire.


As mentioned before, I use GreenDimes, and it works great. Pretty much the only paper spam I get is from shitbag realtors like Rick Avery, and from AT&T.

it's made of meat.


WTF, Tivo!

Dammit! I have a years-old season pass for Heroes ("KTNV, All, First Run") and it didn't record. When I click on the season pass, it shows "no upcoming episodes", but when I search for Heroes, I see:

KNTV, 9/27, 8pm (repeat)
KNTV, 9/29, 9pm (first run)

Why isn't the season pass listing these at all?

This happened for Sarah Connor Chronicles too: it didn't record the first episode, and I had to re-add the season pass to get it to show up. The two season passes (old and new) looked exactly the same, at least according to the data that Tivo displays about them.

I am annoyed.

Update: Looks like almost all of my season passes are fucked, somehow. E.g., my season passes for Dexter and Californication were both showing no upcoming episodes until I re-added them (they both start later this week).

The "old" and "new" passes appear to have a different "series ID" number in the TivoWeb URL. I have no idea what that means.
