We Built This City

Broadcasting live from "Little Switzerland," San Francisco. Twitter @TheRealWBTC. E-mail me here. An explanation of the title here. My other blog: The Sutro Tower Fan Club. And no, he's not a greyhound, he's a whippet named Chase (Rocket passed away in March). PLEASE DON'T message me on Tumblr, I don't check those. Yes, it's a real tattoo.

MJH asked me recently what the title of this blog was a reference to. So here you go, the Starship (a reincarnated Jefferson Airplane) video for “We Built This City,” which was not only my favorite song at age 11 but is both (1) considered by some to be the worst pop single ever and (2) popularly understood to be about San Francisco (I don’t know if that’s actually true, but note the GG Bridge/victorians imagery at 3:24 and the radio chatter about the “City by the Bay” at 3:40).

On a related note, I have this Threadless t-shirt:
