Broke-Ass Stuart in the SF Chronicle!!

Sign Up for the Dopest Events Newsletter in the Bay Area

So a few Mondays ago Meredith May from the San Francisco Chronicle followed me around for a bit while I did some holiday shopping.  I ended up buying a few books and some novelty gifts and we chatted about all things Broke-Ass.  All that wandering and talking we did was turned into an article which you can read right here.  Alternatively, if you live in the Bay you can pick up a print copy from wherever the hell it is that people do that.

If you read the piece online, make sure to check out all the comments too.  There certainly are a lot of cranky ass haters out there today.  Normally I just chalk it up to the internet being the perfect place for anonymous cowards to vent their bullshit, but I’m pretty excited about these haters.  I’m impressed that so many cranky old farts actually know how to use the internet.

I wanna say thanks to Meredith May for profiling me and writing a great piece and to Adam Lau for taking great pics.

Now just buy a book or a shirt already dammit!

    hey stuart,

    congrats on the fab profile the other day. the SF Chronicle is usually quite crappy towards bloggers, often stealing news and bits of info from blogs, and not crediting properly. glad to see the hearst rag treating a blogger with respect.

    my only complaint is that there were no pics of your (broke) ass. i’ve seen your butt, clothed, at woodhouse, know how adorable it is, and think it should be glorified in the papers!
