TWELVE GALAXIES

It's zagnatronic!

Only last week I was thinking that if someone came to town during Pride Week, as a tourist, there were only two photos that they would need to take to encapsulate the total San Francisco experience: Dykes On Bikes leading off the parade, and Frank Chu.

Dykes On Bikes are self-explanatory.

Frank Chu, however...

Frank Chu is a very pleasant gentleman who carries a protest sign with an ever changing message, of which the only constant is TWELVE GALAXIES. All capitals, several colours.

CLINTON GUILTIED - TWELVE GALAXIES - ELECTROPHONIC AMPLIFY PERULATION

TWELVE GALAXIES - BUSH COMPILATIONS MAGNIFY RADIOGRANTIC

IMPEACH VAN BUREN - TWELVE GALAXIES - GUILTIFIED ZAGNATRONIC

KENNEBUNKPORT - TWELVE GALAXIES - PROVEN ATOMIC CONCUBINE INNOCULATIONS

TWELVE GALAXIES - ALLERGICENIC NIXONS - DISTROCHRENICAL AMBULATIONS SOCIALITE


He's a San Francisco concept. No public event is complete without Frank Chu bringing his sign, no protest worthwhile unless, in the newscast, he is in the middle distance, discretely moving into mid-view with his TWELVE GALAXIES sign behind the reporter. No public celebration is truly joyous without TWELVE GALAXIES, no angry march down Market Street worth participating in, unless Frank is marching alongside.
TWELVE GALAXIES defines intrinsic worth, and the sign must be seen. By as many people as possible. So that they will know. They must know.

[We know that if he isn't there, it ain't worth being there. He is the benchmark of eventitude.]


The only problem is that if you want an explanation, you will have to learn how to speak Chu. And there's only one person in this galaxy who knows how.

"...(insert name here) was guiltied by TWELVE GALAXIES for with-holding the right ah salary as a galactic television star during ah the (insert presidential name here) administration, which is a conspiracy ah by the (choose one: KGB, President Jefferson/Clinton/Bush, dead Soviet leaders, FBI) to ah groveniculticly collude royalties".


It is omegalogical.

When you come to SF you can visit the TWELVE GALAXIES BAR on 2565 Mission Street, which is named in honour of Frank Chu's message. If you stay there long enough, you are bound to meet him, and you can ask him about his protest sign.
There is no need to buy him a drink - the club provides him with delicious Budweiser on the house. But please voice sympathy for his struggle. It is a worthwhile cause, and he'll appreciate your support.
Twelve galaxies, dude. Twelve galaxies.
You saw the sign. And it opened up your mind.

His is the MOST consistant message at San Francisco street protests.
