Guy on train: I'd fuck you if you didn't have so many tattoos.
Me: *turns up music*
Guy: I said I'd fuck you if you didn't have so many tattoos!
Me: *takes off headphones* Leave. Me. Alone.
Guy: Why the fuck do you have so many tattoos?
Me:
Guy: Are you fucking deaf as well as a piece of trash?
Lady by door: Hey. Leave her alone.
Guy: Are you her trash girlfriend? Fucking dykes, all tattooed like fucking men. Disgusting waste of pussy.
Lady: *moves forward, carefully moves jacket so only I can see the badge on her belt* Are you okay?
Me: Fine. Just wish he'd go away.
Lady cop: I can make that happen.
Guy: Oh, yeah, bitch? Who the fuck are you? I'll kill you!
Lady cop: And that's what I was waiting for. *grabs guy, holds him against the door* Harassing women on the train was enough, but you just threatened a cop. You're battin' a thousand tonight.
Entire train: *applauds*

They’re closing down the Century Dome Theaters in San Jose, California today. I grew up going to these theaters. 
These places were the best places to watch a movie. I used to love going there; I camped out before movies there; I kissed high school girlfriends there; I hung out in the parking lots there.
I have a lot of formative memories from 1994 through to 2004 at those theaters, those big giant domes. There are some great pictures here from the theater’s heyday. Look at the one that shows the theaters playin’ Clockwork Orange with The Godfather and The French Connection. Can you imagine spending a San Jose day there watching all those great movies in those great theaters? 
They’re closing down the theaters so they can raze the buildings, which have been there since 1964, so that they can turn the land into a mall. The thing is, the movie theaters currently occupy a space between two malls: Valley Fair Mall (where I used to work as a teenager at Christmas), and Santana Row, a more upscale mall. 
Basically, they are demolishing Californian history to build another mall. This means that there will be three malls right next to eachother. Just more places to stick stores. No culture. 
I often worry about how someone, somewhere thinks that having three malls side by side is a good idea. I worry about money’s influence. This is indicative, on a personal level for me, of everything wrong with the culture currently ruining Silicon Valley. 

And I thought this kind of shit only happens in Indonesia
