Football Player and Gay Marriage Advocate Chris Kluwe Makes Cameos In The Castro Tonight: This is the guy who famously used the term, "Holy fucking shitballs" in an open letter to a sitting Maryland state delegate. Go buy the man a beer. [H/t: SFist]

PandoDaily Is Really Very Terrible: According to SF Weekly's Dan Mitchell, "the site of record for Silicon Valley" is "bubbleheaded," "shamelessly shilly," "shamelessly silly," has "corruption built right into it," is "out-Randing Ayn Rand," and, intellectually, "is as light as graphene aerogel." Also, Mitchell continues, it's breath smells and its mother wears army boots. [H/t: SF Weekly]

Here Are Silicon Valley's $6 Million Arts and Crafts Kits: I know a certain tech writer who won't be invited to Brit Morin's next "craft party." [Ht: Valley Wag]

Google Interns Are Terrorizing Their Neighbors at a San Jose Apartment Complex: And by "terrorizing," the writer actually means having "late-night hot-tubbing sessions," jaywalking, and being under 40. [H/t: New York magazine]

Is Larry Ellison cheating?: Who knew that a simple boat race could be so complicated and contentious? Oh, that's right, we did! [H/t: SFBG]

Cost of bathrooms for S.F. Muni operators raises concerns: $170,000 does seem like an awful lot for a glorified Porta Potty. What is that, like, two parking spaces? [H/t: SF Examiner]
