I've lived in the Bay Area 12 years now and have rarely been impressed with San Francisco's slant on Quirk and Originality. It usually involves nudity, drugs, and subverting the dominant paradigm, a tired cliche that went out in the 60s.

I'm not saying you won't find original thinking here. It's just better hidden than you might imagine.


Amen. San Francisco is basically an echo chamber when it comes to these things. Without any thoughtful challenges to everyone's lefty politics and modern spirituality, things drift towards the lazy, uninteresting, and half-baked. As a guy with lefty politics and (on the right day) modern spirituality, it can all be kind of embarrassing. It's the only reason that I wish there was a functional Republican party in the city.
