Pioneer Day Free Association


One hundred sixty-eight years ago, the Brooklyn arrived in San Francisco, making it a predominately Mormon town (it didn’t last). In celebration of this moment, some free association. First, my comic about expedition leader Sam Brannan (originally published in SF Weekly), then a song by my favorite Mormon Austin band about New York City, then an image of Annie Poon’s New York-living lovelorn Puppy, then a Kershisnik painting with a couple that look like they may soon be lovelorn themselves, and finally a pre-trek Brigham Young looking shady, like he might be about to break some hearts himself.

All images link to where I found them. The video is followed by a link to the band’s website . . . and to the video . . . in case I didn’t figure out Wp’s imbed code properly.

    PS: when did you publish that Brannan comic? It’s so great! Ship Brooklyn research is a passion of mine. We should chat sometime about this.
