Chicken John meets Dr. Evil
So it’s true. Evil is behind my candidacy. And not just an evil enthusiast… no. This man has a PHd. Meet Dr. Evil. Neat guy. A scientist by day, he made me dinner last night and we talked about how to take over the world… or at least lose this election with poise and grace. Dr. Evil did the matching funds campaign where he and his wife committed to $1,000 in matching funds. People are kinda coming out of the woodwork to do little things. There is a fundraiser in NYC next Wednesday, a dinner at my house tonight, Food Hacking is doing a dinner on Tuesday, a place in Ben Lomand is donating all the money they make on Mohitos Friday and Saturday to the campaign… on and on. The donations to date are just shy of $12,000. I need to crack $25 by the 28th of August to get $50,000 in matching funds. That’s 13 days away. And during Burning Man. It’s a little challenging. But whatever. It’ll work out.
What I’m really excited about is Royal Deluxe!!!!
Holy shit. You have to click and look. Giant puppets, and so beautiful. They totally win. City of Art and Innovation? These guys are awesome. We gotta get these guys over here. That is simply the most stunning thing I have ever seen. I would totally travel to go experience this.
Here is a video…. VIDEO
I blew an hour last night looking at video of this stuff.
Today I have to visit the Ethics Committee who are going to give me a lesson in campaign finace accounting so I can qualify for the matching funds. Barrel of laughs.
This Friday 12 of the 14 candidates are going to meet on Civic Center plaza lawn to have a debate. Without microphones. What poor showmanship. Mr. Newsome has declined and so have I. Gene Lushtak is teaching this week at Urban Dharma, which I of course recommend. 2650 Fulton St @ 3rd Ave, SF 94118, 7:30 Fridays.
I spoke to candidate George Davis (whose website: http://www.vote4mayorsf.com doesn’t work) on the phone yesterday. He needs a space to hold a rally. He needs it to hold 500 people. If you have any leads, you can… oh yea. You can’t contact him. Oh well. He’s the nudist. I asked him about debating. He is utterly convinced he is going to win. He says that everyone is naked under their clothes and all he has to do is convince them of that and he’s gonna win. I tried to get him to back down. He wouldn’t budge. Grasshopper, the homeless cab driver (who lost his license) is also ABSOLUTELY convinced he is going to win. I asked him why he thinks that. “Because people are angry.” OK, I see his point. I have been thinking about interviewing all the other candidates. And the board of Supes. Our perspective is our truth, and since none of us have a chance to win against Gavin with his 130% approval rating and his campaign fund which is more then the gross national product of Nauru, I think that we can all benefit by seeing how a City of Art and Innovation gets into a mess where by our political system is so preverted and so spoiled that radicals only play if they can win and with a $200,000 campaign budget you can maybe get 20% of the voting population to ever see your name once besides on the ballot. How do we find ourselves in a situation that only comedy can fix? Well it’s pretty amazing. But I think it has to do with molecules. Or something. I dunno. I just spent 4 hours with Dr. Evil. I’m still spinning.

cook you dinner !!!
Yes, by now you’ve probably heard that Chicken John is running for Mayor of San Francisco.
The point isn’t to “win” Gavin Newsom’s going to do that
to draw attention to a number of issues that will otherwise be ignored; and to have fun doing it.
Chicken needs to raise $25,000. By August 28th.
He’s brought a lot to the San Francisco arts community, now it’s time to give back!!!
We at Pirate Cat Radio believe in Chicken John;
we believe in fostering a City of Art and Innovation;
we like pickup trucks that run on coffee grinds; and…
we believe in having fun, lots of fun, as much fun as we can have in a lifetime, or more!
Please join us for a Chicken Dinner.
Chicken John will be on hand to speak about his Platform and answer your questions.
Pirate Cat Radio DJs will play music for the event. You will eat, enjoy yourself and
write big fat checks (or slim, but still beneficial ones).
Invite your friends.
Please RSVP to
before Wednesday 8/15 @ Midnight.
AND DON’T FORGET– THIS NOV. 7TH…
“Vote for Chicken!”
