Lots of comics action this weekend
1st three: from the Cartoon Art Museum
Last: Adrian Tomine’s Optic Nerve 13
All scanned in shitty lighting using Scanner Pro for the iPhone which is a quite remarkable app, actually.
Japan’s finest reggae band.
The Paramount Theater in Oakland has 2-hour tours at 10am on 1st and 3rd Saturdays. It’s only $5! It’s probably the most faithfully restored Art Deco masterpiece on the west coast.Tip: try to find a Saturday where they aren’t having a show that night. Otherwise they won’t be able to show you backstage or the “secret tunnel”
I couldn’t believe it was true, so I looked it up. Caller mistakes Nelson Mandela for Morgan Freeman in KQED’s forum show.
"I also just want to comment on what an amazing not only peacemaker he was, but actor as well, in Shawshank Redemption and Bruce Almighty."
The host is amazingly gracious about it. Anyway, way to break the stereotype about public radio listeners from San Francisco, lady.
RIP Morgan Freeman
