Will HBO's Summer Heights High be the next Flight of the Conchords?

All of a sudden HBO is on the leading edge of funny. And if Summer Heights High (a mockumentary about Australian school life starring one guy—Chris Lilley) is anywhere near as ridiculous as Flight of the Conchords, then the cable network will have us keeled over again. Based on the trailer, we're pretty sure they're on to something. To get an exclusive screening of the series head over to the Rickshaw Stop on 10/27 from 7 to 10PM.

Mangoes From the Gods (i.e. the Mission)


If you're feeling the autumnal doldrums (it was downright brisk outside yesterday) or already weary of of grapes and apples, I have the tropical antidote: Mexico-grown Kent mangoes.

Last September, I wrote here about these mangoes. Tart, creamy and sweet, they represent absolute balance and perfection. The kind of mango that a knife slices through like butter. If a chef could create something so perfect, he would be God, is what I'm saying.

The Wave Organ, Part Sculpture, Part Instrument


It’s surprising how many locals have never been to the Wave Organ; many don’t even know where it is. This “acoustic sculpture” is actually a huge marble-and-granite musical instrument created in 1986 by the Exploratorium’s senior artist Peter Richards and master stone mason George Gonzales.

Why doesn't Marc Jacobs tell us what he really thinks about Sarah Palin?

The Marc Jacobs store on Fillmore makes no secret about what it thinks about the Republican ticket.  The window display features a bikini and fur clad Sarah Palin wielding an automatic rifle, George Bush with a fuzzy pink cowboy hat and John McCain draped in dollar signs.  The sign below reads "One Heartbeat Away" and rattles off some of Palin's core beliefs.  Ouch.  The Fillmore store's been known for its overt messages (a 2006 installation featured the words WORST PRESIDENT EVER spanning across the store's windows), which are apparently ordered up by the
