When actress/comedian/musician Margaret Cho first heard "San Francisco," the latest song from singer-songwriter and good friend Jill Sobule's new album, she knew she wanted to direct the video. Determined to feature landmarks and icons that embodied the spirit of Jill's song, Margaret headed straight to's studios at the San Francisco Armory, enlisting the talents of Founder and CEO Peter Acworth, and Director, Princess Donna, writer Stephen Elliott and local drag queen Monistat. What resulted is a beautiful expression of San Francisco, its inhabitants and everything the city stands for. The song is featured on Jill's brand new album "California Years" (in stores 4/14/09). Just like the music video, the album could never have been completed without the generous contributions of others; having been funded entirely by fan donations, "California Years" is an album that truly belongs to the community.

    I don’t understand why you would delete my posts, which attempted to be helpful, but you didn’t delete the post that complains about director/actors chewing gum during a shoot.

    I am beginning to think this is personal.

    I know! We apologize. Sometimes we have to make due with whatever room is available, and sometimes we don’t realize until it’s too late that the sound quality sucks. But don’t worry, we’re being much more careful about where we shoot our interviews from now on.

    All of our music is either stock tunes from music software, or songs that our editors compose themselves. If anyone ever wants to write us some music to use as soundtracks for our pieces, please feel free to — we’d love it!
