Happy Friday Bay Area!
Welcome to the weekend. We rounded up the best and most interesting stories from the last seven days and lined them all up for you right here.
Aw, sometimes stories just hit you in the feels. Aydian Dowling, a man who began his life as a woman but has fully transitioned over the last several years is reportedly running away with the competition to model for Men’s Health Magazine’s Ultimate Guy Search. As of this writing, Dowling has around four times as many votes as the next contestant in second place.
To the chagrin of the some and the delight of others, Justin Bieber was reportedly kicked out of last weekend’s Coachella festivities when he and his entourage attempted to enter Drake’s backstage area during his set. Bieber claims he was invited (and he did reportedly have the appropriate badges), however, the singer exchanged words with the bouncer, and clearly, that went well for no one.
After facing an angry flurry of opposition from neighbors in Marin County who wanted to block his low income housing project, George Lucas is deciding to go right on with his plans without the city’s help. May the force be with you, George.
Yikes. We’re not surprised some jobs on here like chef or military personnel, because positions like those are notoriously low paid, but firefighter? Some of these are pretty depressing. Check out the whole list. Hopefully your job isn’t on here?
What’s this now? Your baby is named Khaleesi? Seriously, what were you thinking? It’s a name created by a tribe of barbarians. These are people who actually kill their wedding guests and are afraid of salt water. They should not be the ones naming your new human. How about Arya instead?
