  1. Thanks for your reply, man! I’ve never really thought twice about that aspect of San Fran’s arts scene, and in general I really love the city that Chris hates, but hearing his caustic tirade on it was highly entertaining. I enjoy interviewing people because occasionally you get to look at the world through their eyes for a minute.
