Bruce Lee Raps on BART

BART rider Nick saw this Bruce Lee look-alike rapping on BART last week (note: not Halloween!). Yes, Bruce Lee. Rapping. On BART. Words that shouldn’t belong in the same sentence, but then again, anything can happen on Muni and BART!

Click the video to see Bruce Lee in his full rhyming glory.

Thanks, Nick!

Video: Live Rickroll on Muni

Not sure how we could have missed this on Halloween but check it out: “Two guys. One girl. One dream. To real-life rickroll an entire city on Halloween.”

Are we all familiar with the idea of rickroll? Here it goes:

“When Jason put the boombox above his head, it played 5 seconds of Peter Gabriel’s “In Your Eyes” (per Say Anything) and then suddenly jumped to “Never Gonna Give You Up.” My costume was modified to be tear-away, and I was Rick Astley underneath. Boom. Real life rickroll.”

These guys did it all over town, and of course the N and L got rickrolled properly! Check out the video. Props to @SaraMurphy for sending this video our way … and in effect, rickrolling us, too!

I just got back into the country after being in southeast Asia for two weeks. Totally have that “two left shoes” feeling. But beer and Game 7 of the World Series and Muni Diaries help ease the blow of being back. I missed you guys!

Eugenia was kind enough (tee hee) to give me the wheel on Weekend Photos. And so …

Halloween happens on on Monday this year, which means we get to celebrate all weekend, all the way into the Day of the Dead!

Three fun things to do:

Zombie Dance and Costume Party, at Metronome Dance Collective. You know you’ve always wanted to dance like Michael Jackson, and now you can. Learn Thriller steps with Ricardo and Christina, followed by a Latin ballroom and salsa party. Tonight at 8 p.m., 1830 17th Street at DeHaro. Take the 10, 19, or 22.

Waldo Pub Crawl (via FunCheapSF). Waldos will be everywhere this Saturday, thanks to this flashmob. Get your red and white stripes ready! Check Waldo Pub Crawl Facebook page for details.

All Hallow’s Eve. Goth and industrial music. Pile on the black eyeliner and black nail polish because this is going to be a good one . Sunday at 9 p.m. DNA Lounge, 375 11th St. Take the 9, 12, 27, or 47.

Enjoy these photos and your weekend!

Important Things: Giant Styrofoam

@RitaBookNews tweeted us this gem the other day, with this title: “Woman brings a huge, life-size piece of Styrofoam on Muni?”

Question-mark, indeed.

We lament the 500 breaches of Muni etiquette that flew out the window so this thing could have a seat(s). But it does look damned comical just sitting there. Perhaps these are the beginnings of a Halloween costume? It reminded me of Ol’ Drippy from Aqua Teen Hunger Force in its blobularness.

Spotted something cool (balloon animals) or ridiculous (see attached) on your ride? Talk to us about it @munidiaries.
