Larry Ellison's Fantasy Island: Sometimes it's hard to tell the America's Cup magnates from James Bond movie villains. Hey, that gives us an idea for an article. [H/t: Wall Street Journal]

Watch As Double Rainbow Guy Taunts Yosemite Forest Fire: That forest fire doesn't stand a chance. [H/t: SFist]

San Jose sues MLB over A's move: Because San Jose wants in on that sewage action. [H/t: SFGate]

Hutch Brings Whiskey, Oysters, and Grits to Oakland's Uptown: One of these days, we'll have to get around to taking BART over to Oakland and see what all the fuss is. Do we have to update our passports? [H/t: Eater SF]

Michelle Shocked to return to S.F. During Pride: Todd Vogt, publisher of the Bay Guardian, the Weekly, and the Examiner, has invited Michelle Shocked—whose homophobic rant got her booed off the stage at Yoshi's a few months ago—to play a free concert during Pride. She'll also be writing an op/ed. Now that you know that, you can help us. Who is this woman and why should we care that she's off her meds? Wait, you know what? We really don't care. [H/t: SFGate]
