And by that, we mean they wrote their name in Helvetica and slapped a blue gradient box on the righthand corner.
Don't get us wrong, we love Gap and a silly logo won't change that, we just want to know why? An effort to revamp their look to improve sales? An attempt to take in American Apparel's fleeting customers?
What do you all think about the redesign?
My best friend, who's 33 and in a stable relationship with a great guy, just told me she sometimes “forgets” to take her birth control pill but isn't telling her boyfriend. She says she'll be fine if she gets pregnant; that she doesn’t need to have the boyfriend involved with raising any child, though she'd hope he would. I'm kind of shocked. Is this common, or is she totally selfish?
He Said: Regardless of how common it is to be casual about birth control, if one partner is trusting the other to be honest, and they aren’t, it’s selfish. While life slips us many surprises as we go along, it’s not fair to give happenstance a helping hand when the outcome will affect someone else.
Each week, we bring you our top picks for the best places to booze on the cheap in SF.
1. Big Nate's 20th Anniversary: Over in a quiet corner of SOMA, former Warriors center Nate Thurmond has been selling his barbeque to a hungry public for two decades. To celebrate, Big Nate's BBQ is throwing an all-you-can-eat anniversary party, with a cash bar featuring Abita Amber and Mission Blonde Ale, Wrangler Red, Shannon Ridge Sauvignon Blanc and plenty of tasty smoked meat. The price tag? A mere $10-- and Nate will be in attendance for your autograph/photograph needs. (Saturday, October 9, 12-4 pm, at Big Nate's BBQ, 1665 Folsom St., SOMA.)
Given San Francisco’s international reputation for rainbow flags, it’s somewhat shocking to realize the Out Loud Comedy Festival is the first and only LGBT comedy festival in recorded history. That said, I didn’t fact check ALL of recorded history (it's entirely possible there was a wildly popular version on the heels of the Gold Rush, complete with grizzled miners in petticoats), so take this blanket statement with a small grain of pink Himalayan salt.
Zach Galifianakis understands that his breakthrough success in last year’s The Hangover has left fans with certain expectations. They want a sequel to Todd Phillips’ comedy about four guys (and one innocent babe) gone wild during a pre-wedding Vegas trip, and they’ll get one in 2011. But more than that, they want Galifianakis, a veteran stand-up and onetime Saturday Night Live writer, to make them laugh.

You may recognize indie comic bombshell Kristen Schaal from her turn on HBO's Flight of the Conchords as Brooklyn's most endearing stalker, or from contributions to The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. You may even recognize her distinctive elocutions from a role in Toy Story 3.
Well, get ready for toy stories of a decidedly more adult persuasion when the comedienne reveals a more sultry side during a lunchtime signing of her book The Sexy Book of Sexy Sex at Chronicle Books this Friday.
The 33rd Mill Valley Film Festival kicks off Thursday with two opening-night films: The King’s Speech, winner of the Audience Award at last month’s Toronto Film Festival, starring A Single Man Oscar nominee Colin Firth as King George VI, who conquers his humiliating stutter with the help of Geoffrey Rush’s unconventional speech therapist; and Conviction, Tony Goldwyn’s chronicle of a high-school dropout (Hilary Swank) who earns a law degree to free her brother (Sam Rockwell) from prison.
