San Francisco Trip
The trip out of Santa Barbara was delayed quite a bit due to the police shooting to death a carjacker. The fellow in question is destined to go down in "stupid criminal" history, as the story ended when he attempted to carjack a truck being driven by an undercover narcotics officer.
Saturday morning was spent walking all over the city with John and Ian. I did some shopping in the Castro, mostly at Auto Erotica, which carries a good deal of vintage porn and gay magazines. I picked up some issues of Physique Pictorial, then headed over to A Different Light and bought a couple of collections of gay horror stories and Meatmen on sale, as well as a collection of Stephen Lowther and Howard Stangroom comics.
Later in the day we made it over to the Isotope, where I met James and Kirsten and James gave me the tour of the toilet-seat art. It's quite a nice store, with a good and diverse selection, and an inviting and comfortable layout.
Sunday Pete and I had a nice brunch with Larry Young and Mimi Rosenheim. It was a great meal with good company. And we mostly managed to avoid talking about comics. (You can sort of read about it here.) That night was the wedding of our friends Ben and Debra which was...a wedding. I'm not terribly patient with big productions, so I was trying to be on my best behavior. Unfortunately, it gave Pete...ideas.
