The Rock Hudson City

a: San francisco ~
b: aging Hollywood Actor

What: "San Francisco is like an aging Hollywood actor: radiant from a distance or through a gauze filter, but get up close and you start to see evidence of too many patchy cosmetic fixes. Right now our city is being marred by horrific random acts of violence that have me scared shitless. Scared enough to have us contemplating moving again, but today, I'm proud to be here."

METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
