The Weekly Roundup!

While you’re all trying to sweat out that tryptophan and get that ass to fit back into that holiday dress, why don’t you check out the post-Black Friday version of the roundup, eh?

If you like cartoon or drawing-driven blogs, you’ll love Darcel. His pieces revolve around his life events, but this drawing of Kim Gordon and Thurston Moore from Sonic Youth was super awesome. Check him out! [Darcel]

Check out this awesome article from McSweeney’s on, you guessed it — holiday squash. [McSweeney’s]

I know a lot of you ladies are trying to keep it cheap this year, so I direct you to InStyle’s great list of dresses under $100 dollars. Whether you’re a Joan or Betty, they have great choices for everyone. I personally am leaning towards this little sleeveless number. Sexy but sweet, no? [InStyle]

After the success of Proposition G, which makes the eviction of the elderly, terminally sick and the disabled without just cause illegal, Supe Eric Mar and others are trying to get the same law passed for families. Should be an interesting legislation to keep an eye on. [Mission Loc@l]

Did you guys check out Danielle’s awesome polaroid post this past week? You definitely should put one of those Fuji cams on your wishlist — I know I am! []

This badass painting was done on an iPhone. Believe it. Troof. [Muni Diaries]

Burrito Justice sends us a really important report on some of the most dangerous bus lines in the city. Not surprisingly, they don’t tell us anything we already know — the 14 was at the top of the list. [Burrito Justice]

Monica Miller - The Intern

Monica Miller - The Intern

Ms. Miller was born in San Diego, CA to one lesbian mother and one
righteous, cheap father. Currently, she is enrolled at San Francisco
State University for a B.A. in Journalism and the approximate
completion date is around 2015. She has worked for many papers in the
Bay Area, including the Oakland Tribune and the San Mateo Country
Times and is currently the city editor at one of the most
underappreciated publications in SF, the Golden Gate [X]press. Though
she may find bargains aplenty, it only stems from the necessity of
never landing an actual job and working for hacks [like Stuart.] With
intelligence, style, poise, bite, and honesty, she will rip your heart
out; but not before writing some awesome, poignant shit. This year,
she is looking forward to bigger and better things such as: trying to
get paid for a gig, actually finding a date that isn't a loser or
fucking crazy, not calling her parents when hungover and bringing you
the best of the 7x7 everyday of the week. [By the way, I wasn't
kidding about the date thing; if you love food, booze and shoegaze,
get at me.]
