'Sup Kat! Did you know this very same art truck inspired a whole blog post over on FutureIsFiction.com? It’s true.
Hey this means you were in my neighborhood! I guess I’d complain but you were at mi casa yesterday.

Sorry I’ve been scarce ya’ll. I went to Burning Man and I’m still, as they say, Decompressing. It seems like 40-60% of the people there are from the Bay Area, but since this is a San Franciso and Oakland blog, I don’t know if ya’ll want to see a bunch of photos from Nevada. So I’m undecided as to whether to post them here. 
I have put up a scrapbook of Burning Man Caravansary 2014 if you’re curious.

Street art…literally. Just noticed the other day that this has faded to illegibility since I took this photo. Seen in Temescal, on Tele. north of 40th.

This hottie was dancing with us. My pal Jeremy on the right, and Lauren dancing left with her hair in her face. That fist interrupting my shot was Jeremy, breaking it down hippie hacker style.

Lauren in front of some fresh graf downtown. I’d guess this was the Tenderloin, based on the shady types lounging around where we got Thai food.
