Are You The Next Survivor?

Note: post amended for clarity

Do you walk fearlessly through SoMA, right along 6th Street, late at night without a group of friends around you? Can you throw your elbows up and make the walk through Chinatown without getting stopped by the throngs of crowds? Have you ever found yourself in the midst of a North Beach brawl on a Saturday night just because it’s 2 a.m. and fighting is better than going home? Or did you brave Halloween in the Castro without any worries? What do you think of getting away from all of this insanity to spend some time on an island deserted except for your enemies (and that huge camera crew)?

Perhaps you were meant to be on the next season of Survivor. So mark your calendars for the open casting call. It takes place on January 20th from 10 – 2 at the Metro PCS on Van Ness. Applications are available for download here. Even if you don’t want to try out, you might want to wander down to the area and check out the people who do think that they could be the next Survivor.

    “It sure beats walking through Chinatown.”

    I’m sure no one will miss you there…

    Hey Kathy, maybe we should establish some sort of popular mob rule or official Exclusion Act to keep the Chinese from leaving that crowded den of filth and sin. Oh I think we already had that … in the 1800′s.

    past SF laws:

    1890: Bingham Ordinance: Chinese people, including citizens, must not live or work in San Francisco, except in “a portion set apart for the location of all the Chinese.”

    1900: All Chinese people must be placed under quarantine.

    Here’s a few books you might wanna check out when yer not watching your sorted by race episodes of Survivor on TV,

    The Anti- Chinese Movement in California. Urbana: University of Illinois Press, 1991.
    Sandmeyer, Elmer Clarence.

    The Coming Man: 19th Century American Perceptions of the Chinese.
    Choy, Phillip, Lorraine Dong, and Marlon K. Hom
    University of Washington Press, 1995.

    Hey Kathy, don’t forget to stay at home & blog and feel good about your lily white self. I’m glad you moved here to really help the city shine…

    Thanks for pointing out that the post apparently came out sounding wrong. I just meant that walking through the most crowded / active areas of town (Chinatown, North Beach, Castro events) requires a lot of human energy. I guess I need to learn to be more clear in my writing! The funny thing is that I’ve never even seen Survivor …
