    How many of them have the Golden Gate Bridge on them?!

    Sheesh... If you're going to go with San Fran, how about some weird leather dungeon scene?

    11

    11 is the only one that doesn't appear "generic" to me. Definitely 11.

    I'll agree that many of the designs are generic. I especially do not like the ones with the Golden Gate Bridge on them. Face it, there is at best a 50/50 chance that thing will still be standing in another twenty years. I don't see where you can call a design of John Muir or a bear standing in front of El Capitan generic, though. I'm not dissin' your choice - it was tied for my second-favorite design, but bears are way to cool to take a pass on, dude.

    El Guapo the Peoples Republic of The Lost Coast could use you, do you like redwood trees? The excitement of military helicopters flying low over your house and your crops, but never actually doing anything?

    Or a nice cameo of FD Midori
    "They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety." Ben Franklin

    Remember this motto to live by: "Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming 'WOO- HOO what a ride!'"

    Ooo! A sticky song! I can't resist.

    If you're going to San Francisco
    Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair
    If you're going to San Francisco
    You're gonna meet some gentle people there

    For those who come to San Francisco
    Summertime will be a love-in there
    In the streets of San Francisco
    Gentle people with flowers in their hair

    All across the nation such a strange vibration
    People in motion
    There's a whole generation with a new explanation
    People in motion people in motion

    For those who come to San Francisco
    Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair
    If you come to San Francisco
    Summertime will be a love-in there

    If you come to San Francisco
    Summertime will be a love-in there

    Those with any reference to Hollywood were immediately ruled out. I settled on either #4 or #20.
