Clark, the cameraman from the truncated National Dinner Tour I went on, is working for this new company called moblogic. Give it a look and support him out there in New York. The clip is pretty funny stuff.

In this photo you can see the demise of Victorian style here in San Francisco. On the far left is a restored/maintained Victorian era building, in the middle is one that was covered over with stucco during that 1940’s craze for the stuff, and finally you see what people thought was nice in the sixties – clapboards. It is a slow loss of ornamentation that brought us to Modernism. I ask you, was it worth it?

  1. One of the places i used to live in on 17st and dolores was a stucco remake, but the owner kept all the facade and the last time I was in the city they had remodeled and reattached the facade. it looke real nice. it was one of the few in the neighborhood that survived the earthquake.
