Mythbusters: LIVE!

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

My boyfriend loves this show because it’s totally manly- you know, the mechanics, technology, and the dirty-fingernail-grime that comes with it. The nerd in me loves the science and trial and error, while the fashionista in me is obsessed with Jamie Hyneman‘s iconic beret, or his partner-in-crime’s hipster thick-rimmed glasses. And, well, being the la-la-land weirdo that I am, I just can’t get over the fact that I totally believe Hyneman was a walrus in a past life! (haha, no seriously, look at him!!)

Anyways, if you have ever seen Mythbusters, you know that it is an awesome show where Hyneman is joined by Adam Savage, along with a team of really great science and technology experts, to understand and either prove or debunk all sorts of Internet rumors, popular beliefs, and other myths.

The show takes place in San Francisco and will soon be presenting itself on a live stage, where a series of experiments and audience participation. While this should be great fun (who doesn’t love a little explosion every now and then?), it’s not a necessarily broke-ass-friendly show. womp-womp! Sorry friends, tickets run from $45 to $160…but, this is something that will definitely make for an interesting evening!

Paulette Greenhouse - The Penny Pincher

Paulette Greenhouse - The Penny Pincher

Paulette Greenhouse is a journalist and graphic designer, obsessed with her beloved pet hedgehog, Lisa Pickles. Seriously, she can talk about that prickly little princess for days! Paulette enjoys fashion, music, and art (cool points are gained if DIY). Although she tells outsiders that she lives in San Francisco, Paulette actually lives in nearby Pacifica because she can't afford to be that cool. The truth is she hates money and believes that it is source of many major problems in the world. But since society has made money so damn important for adequate survival, she slaves away at a lame local corporate restaurant, receiving crappy tips from people even cheaper than she is. (damn!) But above all, Paulette believes in giving exact change– it's a way of life!
