Tonight's TV Forecast: Shark Tornadoes

This is what it looks like inside a shark tornado

A lot of TV shows jump the shark. We prefer when programs confront their sharks directly, in any way, shape, or form, be they sharks in the water or sharks in the sky.

Please, please, please don't miss "Sharknado," a made-for-TV movie premiering on the SyFy channel tonight, at 9 p.m. PST. In what promises to be the most epic racket involving weird animal disasters since Snakes on a Plane, (sans Samuel L. Jackson, unfortunately), disaster strikes SoCal in the form of a freak thunderstorm, lifting and scattering our favorite living fossils to the four winds.

Check out the trailer of massive, whirling tunnels of sharks.

San Francisco Named Snobbiest City in the U.S.

Categories: News


It's official: we can no longer ride on the flowery coattails of our hippie past. San Francisco is now America's snobbiest city, according to an article by Travel & Leisure ranking the Bay's upper-crustiness above New York, Boston and the "exceptionally tidy" residents of Minneapolis. Seriously?

Well, we guess we saw it coming through the lenses of our Google glasses. Here are some other reasons we've reached the crème de la crème of American egotism:

- We're the second most expensive city to live in, behind Manhattan. That's absurd. When a single studio apartment in SOMA costs $1300 a month without a bathroom, you have to ask yourself if all the positive reinforcement on your new sundress from the homeless guy on your street corner is really worth it. And then hyperventilate when you start looking at costlier digs.

"There are a lot of journalists here tonight," Andrew McKinley, owner of Adobe Books, said as he poured me some wine. Indeed, I spotted no fewer than three people seeking commentary while taking handwritten notes, and one with a microphone. It made sense: a lot of San Franciscans thought the well-loved bookstore was closing due to skyrocketing rent. Wednesday night was rumored to be a "farewell reading" featuring three of the city's most remarkable writers.
