World Premiere: Pink - "Who Knew"

I've heard this song everytime I go out to the bars and I love it. At first I didn't know who sing this so I Google it, and Voila !!!

Pink - Who Knew

You took my hand
You showed me how
You promised me you'd be around
Uh huh
That's right
I took your words
And I believed
In everything
You said to me
Yeah huh
That's right

If someone said three years from now
You'd be long gone
I'd stand up and punch them out
Cause they're all wrong
I know better
Cause you said forever
And ever
Who knew

Remember when we were such fools
And so convinced and just too cool
Oh no, no no
I wish I could touch you again
I wish I could still call you friend
I'd give anything

When someone said count your blessings now
'fore they're long gone
I guess I just didn't know how
I was all wrong
They knew better
Still you said forever
And ever
Who knew

Yeah yeah
I'll keep you locked in my head
Until we meet again
Until we
Until we meet again
And I won't forget you my friend
What happened

If someone said three years from now
You'd be long gone
I'd stand up and punch them out
Cause they're all wrong and
That last kiss
I'll cherish
Until we meet again
And time makes
It harder
I wish I could remember
But I keep
Your memory
You visit me in my sleep
My darling
Who knew
My darling
My darling
Who knew
My darling
I miss you
My darling
Who knew
Who knew

How Luxury Lost Its Luster

A new book by Dana Thomas called Deluxe: How Luxury Lost Its Luster, attempts to reveal the fact that luxury for the most part no longer exists. It has become a pseudo-label to sell goods for 10 times what they cost. Thomas argues that luxury companies are no longer about producing the best possible quality items but making the most amount of money with the least possible effort. Advertising savvy has replacement workmanship. The boardroom is more important than the workshop at the ateliers. She describes a process whereby luxury brands are now available at middle strata shopping malls around the world at the great cost of watering down quality and exclusivity. Most luxury goods are now produced in Asian in the same factories. So called couture houses have little to do with their own origins and are just marketable names that have been sold off to multinational conglomerates. SOURCE

While we were hanging out in the hotel, we happened to watch "High School Musical 2" and I'm in love with it (or should I say - I'm in love with Zac, who doesn't.)

Return To The City

I was back to SF last night around midnight. It was a good trip, not great. We had a good time for what Denver had to offer (sorry for being honest.) It's good for us to do something different (outdoor activities) beside drinking and shopping. This trip made me appreciate San Francisco more, sometime you don't know what you've got until it's gone. You need a little comparison for a little appreciation...

This Used to be My Playground...or Red Carpet

My friends and I are still planning to dress up for Halloween although there will be no official Halloween celebration. City officials said Wednesday that there will be no official Halloween celebration anywhere in San Francisco in October - not in the Castro neighborhood, the traditional home of the event, and not at a parking lot near AT&T Park, which had been considered as an alternate site. Officials had been quietly working on plans to snuff out the Castro event, where a shooting last year injured nine people. SOURCE

F@#k !!!! I Lost My Wallet

I couldn't believe this happened to me, I've never lost a wallet before in my life. It was a pain to canceled all my credit cards and get a new ID. Plus, the wallet is not just a Louis Vuitton, it's "limited edition." I guess I need to learn how to let go of something I love...

Happy Birthday, JaySpace !!!

Hopefully we'll come back in one piece...or we may convert to Evangelical like Mr. Ted Haggard ,wink...wink.

New SF Skyline

Despite being branded as the earthquake city, three proposals for a new San Francisco skyscraper have been unveiled. New building will be taller than Transamerica Pyramid and will be the tallest building on the west coast. Here are the designs:
1. English architect Richard Rogers and his firm Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners designed a tower for Forest City Enterprises with a streamlined metallic look that has marked other projects by the renowned architect.

2. Cesar Pelli, designer of dozens of towers worldwide in recent decades, and his firm Pelli Clarke Pelli would insert a tapering tower into the skyline next to a terminal with a rooftop open space. Hines is the developer.

3. The San Francisco office of Skidmore Owings Merrill, working for Rockefeller Group Development Corp. They propose a tower that twists as it rises, topped by a glass veil extending another 10 stories into the air.

The Transit Tower is expected to be an iconic presence that will redefine the city's skyline, while incorporating the latest in green building and seismic safety systems. The winner will be selected on Sep 20th.

Harry Hotter
