Weiss, Cohen and Acebo Davis at Turrell at DeYoung, near Keith Haring show


ok, that above is previously unpublished I think picture of Steve and Eric Cohen as Hunter S. Thompson Twins but what I was fishing for was a more natural picture of half of the above duo (or one-third, as the case may be, how many rooms at the inn, who shaves the barber) and me and Terry, my Terry, the artist Terry Acebo Davis, outside DeYoung, but inside Steve Turrell or is it James Turrell and I am confusing it with Steve Carrell?

now we don’t want to piss off Leah Garchik but is it funny to quote from a private correspond saying she likes the idea but won’t right about it:
Meanwhile if I haven’t or have or something in between talked about Steve and Eric Cohen as Hunter S. Thompson Twins; Leah Garchik of the SF Chron Brand Chron says “Sounds like a great act (but I won’t write about it)”.

Thank you, Mark….. Sounds like a great act…but not sure it’s right for me. Best, and have a lovely Thanksgiving.

Hi, Leah. Happy holiday. Here is another potential non-item. There is now, debuting last night in LA-LA (a second California city south of here, and not the state that gave us Henry Butler and Jason Marsalis), a dance comedy act Thompson Twins that combines nostalgia for SF Journalist Hunter S. Thompson with the music of 1980s pop act Thompson Twins. The instigators are Steve and Eric Cohen of Palo Alto, Stanford and LA — although Steve ran for Mayor of San Francisco in 1991 and lost to Frank Jordan by only 500,000 (1) votes — who are best known as “Ally McBeals” “Dancing Twins” (not the baby, don’t f the baby). Herb Caen himself, maybe his actual last item, mentioned Steve’s quixotic campaign.

I can put you with them if you want detes.

(1) I proofed it later to learn that we were within 190,000 votes of Frank

I have this picture pinned to my wall:
