Featuring the best of local, regional and national talent, Bohemian Carnival carries on its 6-year tradition of immersive entertainment, saturating the senses with 5 hours of non-stop kaleidoscopic action, over 50 stunningly skilled beauties and barbarians, and as much decidedly adult flavorings as you can stuff into your soul. Indeed, for this resurrection, feast your eyes, ears, and whatnot on these fine, featured creatures:
J-Boogie's Dubtronic Science
Vau de Vire Society
The Klown
...and other special guests to be announced in the coming days.
hosted by the cult-star grandson of L.Ron Hubbard and Tourette's fame Jamie DeWolf

APR 2013 Cuddle Party! + Cuddle and Intimacy Workshop 2 April at 18:30 
The Center 548 Fillmore SF btwn Oak and Fell $15 Workshop $20, Cuddle Party $10  

Imagine, if you will, a tiny creature with the ability to invade your body, hijack your cells, change your DNA, and modify you physically and behaviorally to suit its own devious goals. Sound like science fiction? Maybe, but it's also the modus operandi of the real-life parasitic organisms that live among, and inside, the rest of us animals. While some parasites, in their quest for survival and propagation, may live undetected in the bodies of their hosts, others can cause sickness or death. Some of the world's most pernicious and persistent diseases are caused by these supremely successful and sophisticated organisms. But according to evolutionary biologists, parasites have also played a significant role in shaping the human species — including why we use sex to reproduce. (Nice job, little friends!) Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water, Jim McKerrow returns to Ask a Scientist with more strange and wonderful tales of parasite biology. This event is presented in partnership with Wonderfest, The Bay Area Beacon of Science.
Speaker: Jim McKerrow, Director, Center for Discovery and Innovation in Parasitic Diseases
When: Tuesday, April 2, 7pm
Location: SoMa StrEat Food Park, 428 11th Street, San Francisco. (This awesome venue has a humongous, heated, indoor seating area.)
Eats: Bring your appetites! SoMa StrEat Food Park is San Francisco’s first permanent food truck pod. They host up to ten gourmet food trucks at a time, along with the city’s only beer and wine truck.

Then come learn how to prepare a few delicious plant-strong foods with a cooking class taught by Chef Alex Bury. Alex was trained as a classical chef at the world-renowned Culinary Institute of America. In 2001, she and her partner opened a restaurant in Northern California called Sparks with an entirely plant-based menu.

This Earth Day, with the prospect of meaningful climate change policy from Washington perhaps dim, it's time to recognize the important actions we can each take–every time we sit down to eat. Whether to protect the planet, prevent animal abuse, or improve health, our food choices have enormous power. In this talk, we'll hear why so many people and companies are making a shift toward a more plant-based diet, and how they're doing it.

Shapiro has played an integral role in numerous successful legislative and corporate campaigns to improve the plight of farm animals.

Shapiro's work has helped enact farm animal protection laws in California, Arizona, Michigan, Maine, Colorado, Oregon, and Ohio. He's also worked with dozens of companies, including some of the world's top retailers, to improve animal welfare in their supply chains.

What really makes a plant-loving diet so healthy is the focus on whole food ingredients. The so called vegan "transition" foods are often loaded with unnecessary calories and lack many of the beneficial nutrients of whole, plant foods. In this cooking lesson, you'll learn how to make household favorites, without including plant-based meats, cheeses or butter. You'll also learn how to cook delicious plant-based desserts without using any extracted oils or sugars.

spectacle of amazing art, music, and movement as the greatest street faire in the galaxy takes over the streets of downtown San Francisco for a carnival of peace. There will be marching bands, acoustic bands, dance music stages, live art, unique vendors, and more parades than any street faire in the world. And you are invited to participate.

If you'd like to participate, send a description of your idea to krewes(at) and we will send an application and instructions. The deadline for completed applications is January 25th.

Poster by Robert Kidwell and Brad Olsen.

Want to have more fun at How Weird this year? Make your own parade!
This year, in honor of Mardi Gras, we are inviting people to form a Krewe and have a parade during the 14th annual How Weird Street Faire. In New Orleans, the month and a half long Mardi Gras celebration is filled with colorful parades of Krewes, each with its own theme and style. For How Weird this year, we hope to have more parades in one day than New Orleans has during their entire Mardi Gras season!
Everyone at How Weird this year is encouraged to march in parades. Organize one yourself, or join one that catches your attention at the faire. The parades will have their starting points mapped and scheduled, so they will be easy to find.
The How Weird parades will be produced by Krewes of 3 or more people who share a common name and theme. The parades will have no music, enabling them to weave in and out of the many music stages.
If you are interested in forming a Krewe, send an email with your idea and we will send you more information -
The first parade is at 12:01 PM by the Mystic Krewe of Knowledge. They will start at the Howard and New Montgomery Street entrance and proceed to the Info Booth, where they will remain throughout the day answering all of your questions.

Burning Man Infographic
The history of Burning Man has always been a complex entity that has survived, nay, mutated over the years. And because of this, it has grown rapidly since its humble beginnings of a simple gathering on a beach.
The infographic poster shows only a small portion of what Burning Man is. By no means do mere numbers even begin to show a complete picture, as that is a history of stories, experiences, and individual tales.
I was recently interviewed by Jordan Salinger from the San Francisco Planning and Urban Research Association about this inforgraphic:
“For some it is a yearly spiritual revival providing an emotionally charged respite from reality; for others it simply means they are able to eat brunch without standing in line. The mark left by Burning Man on San Franciscans and this city is undoubtedly immense, but is hard to truly measure. The same can be said about the impact on Black Rock City, Burning Man’s yearly home, but this stunning infographic provides an all-encompassing perspective on the event.”
