Herb Caen, San Francisco's foremost newspaper columnist, rumored it. Roger Lapham, San Francisco's "infrequently beloved" businessman mayor, confirmed it. Friedel Klussmann, the President of the San Francisco Federation of the Arts, stopped it.
The issue was a simple one; should San Francisco in 1947 keep the city-owned Powell Street cable cars running? In this environment Glen Hurlburt, a blind pianist, penned his "Cable Car Concerto." A concert orchestra played the "Cable Car Concerto." Hurlburt's "Concerto" cleverly takes us on round trip ride on the Powell-Mason cable from Market Street to the Fisherman's Wharf and back. Enjoy!
This week we review "Jupiter Ascending" directed & written by the Wachowskis, starring Mila Kunis and Channing Tatum. Originally slated for a July 2014 release, reviews have not been great for this fantastical sci-fi opus. Google it. I got "Hot Mess" "It's Stupid. Really Stupid" and "Absolute Nonsense". Tune in today at 1:30pm to see if your favorite nerdy ladies agree or disagree. Oh, in case you're wondering, here's a brief synopsis from IMDb:
"In a bright and colorful future, a young destitute caretaker gets targeted by a ruthless son of a powerful family that live on a planet in need of a new heir, so she travels with a genetically engineered warrior to the planet in order to stop his tyrant reign."
So yeah, that's it.
