Eilifint Bhan: Famous HIBERNIA BANK White Elephant Still Milky, Elephantine – “ENTIRE BUILDING FOR LEASE”May 23rd, 2016
IDK, man. I’m not the designated cheerleader for the Twitterloin, so I’ll not be waving my pom-poms yet for this latest sign of the long-promised “rebirth” of the Tenderloin.
Anyway, it sat empty before and it’s sitting empty now. See?
It would have been a lot better to have had this beast ready to rent back in 2013, you know, due to the hubris. But who will rent this place in 2016?
This kind of thing, as seen recently on the windswept Geary Transit Corridor…
You know what I think? I think that sometimes companies pay money to Clear Channel Outdoor so that it will send part of that money to out sad-sack SFMTA and then maybe SFGov / the SFMTA will then look kindlier upon said generous companies. So it’s kind of more like a bribe / kickback / apology than a pure, earnest attempt at advertising.
I could cite examples…
Who Owns the Streets of San Francisco? This Cleaning Company from Burlingame, Apparently – “CCSI” v. Telstar LogisticsMay 20th, 2016
Here you go – look who’s parking on busy Fulton, smack dab in the middle of the street:
It’s CCSI, whatever that is. Oh, it’s a cleaning company out of Burlingame? So what gives them the right to park illegally? Is it the orange cones? Or it’s just some technique developed over the years, ala Telstar Logistics?
Hey, is this kosher?
But it looks like illegal parking is a part of CCSI’s bidness model:
And the kicker? Ohio plates on the back of the truck.
That’s the kicker.
And at the end of the day, CCSI execs count their fat stacks and laugh at poor poor Ed Reiskin…
I have no words:
It’ll be like an updated version of the Rat Pack, I’m sure.

A Pickup Truck So Long It Requires an Expensive SFPD Police Escort – Life in This “World-Class” CityMay 19th, 2016
IDK, filming something, prolly.
And the flat black paint reduces reflections, that’s what I’m going with.
But when you film in SF, you face a lot of costs. That’s what killed Nash Bridges after a few years and that’s what also helped to kill Trauma after a few months worth of shows got aired.
Anyway, we’re no Vancouver, that’s for sure…
A Tattoo for Your Car? – This City Car Share Chevy Volt Doesn’t Know It’s a Gas-Powered Hybrid, But Nice Kitty!May 18th, 2016
As seen in Civic Center:
Hey, does this ride have a fuel tank? Yes it do. 9.3 gallons worth.
Hey, does this ride have a tailpipe? Yes it do again. But it’s hidden away, the better to fool you.
Does the artist what tagged this car know all this?
Anyway, if this ride is an “EV,” then so is craig Newmark’s old-school ’99 Prius, just saying…
