Everyday is like Smithsday- This Charming Man

Its official- San Franciscans really like The Smiths and the Mozzer himself. In fact, the love for this 80′s pop band is so explicit that it is nearly impossible to walk into the Arts Institute and not:
a) See a Smiths/Moz shirt
b) Hear a lyric from the ‘Louder Than Bombs’ complication slipped into regular conversation

c) Run into another a 5’4” Morrissey look alike

As an ode to one of the bands that will instantly earn you major hip points at a SFAI bash- and of course to the greatest musical enigma himself- SFTACO presents to thee: Smithsday (on Sundays, get it?)

Charmed, we are.

Got a favorite jam you want on hear next Sunday? Or even a funny story that has the Smiths/Moz playing as the soundtrack to your life? Send an email to dara.sftaco@rocketmail.com with the subject title: Holy crap, why are Smiths fans overly obsessive?

I swear I’ve been there before…

Developed between the 1960′s and 70′s, photorealism is the artists attempt in creating a painting that is so realistic that it is often mistaken for a photograph. Pretty obvious in the name, huh? Anyways, artist Steven Albert is a prominent photorealism painter who did a series focused on San Francisco graffiti. Take a look and see if you can recognize some of the locations. Seeing as how San Franciscans love walking and/or biking everywhere, you’re bound to guess the streets these pieces pay homage too. Actually, theres probably a couple walls that has been featured on this site. Enough rambling, scroll down!
