Change that 2012 to 2016 and you’ve got yourself a revivified meme.

A Postcard from Five Years Ago, as Seen on the Streets of San Francisco: “TRUMP / SHEEN 2012” – So, Donald + Charlie = SERIOUS CHANGE?Monday, March 7th, 2016
Another Failed Donald Trump Biz: “TRUMP ICE” – But Don’t Drink THIS Kool-Aid – The Label’s Good for a Laugh ThoThursday, March 3rd, 2016
I LOL’ed when I saw this, as seen on The Donald’s aging corporate jet, the one that used be a low-cost Mexican airliner, from a now-bankrupt airline:
So, when you’re on Air Trump One, this is supposed to be your souvenir, as if being on ATO equates to being on Air Force One
Just Saying, But the Effort to Get Rid of San Francisco’s City Flag Has Stalled – East Bay Man, North Bay Techies Failed in 2015Monday, January 4th, 2016
Well this is how things were shaping up way back last year, when the fun-loving North Bay Bros of Autodesk teamed up with East Bay radio personality
Sandy Beach, J Crew, Sam Francisco, Greek Aphrodite, oh, “Roman Mars” to redesign our official flag.
Now, at the time, the plan was to have a contest or something with a “San Francisco official” giving input, you know, for color of authority. But here in the West Bay, this scheme might not be all that popular, so I was wondering who was going to step up to climb up the flagpole / lightning rod, you know, for no good reason.
Well, nobody’s stepped up yet, just saying. So that means things are behind schedule, since all this was supposed to get going last year.
And when I say things, I mean, there’s no way that you could come up with one new flag design that would get voted in over the current version, so the effort is to first get people to agree to chuck the old flag and only then come up with the replacement. The auslanders have decided on a two-stage process for us.
And when I say voted in, I mean that the People Of SF would eventually be able to weigh in with big fat VETO stamp, in one fashion or another. (Remember when Our Designerly Community tried to wholesale change the official flag of Iraq? It didn’t go so hot. That’s something to consider, College Boy. And remember this recent attempt to change the UC logo? (I wonder if we ever got our money back for that one?))
And I mean that Mayor Ed Lee right now has never been more unpopular right? So, who’s going to step up to shepherd this New Flag plan?
I know not.
Anyway, let’s see if 2016 shakes out better for this misguided effort…
How the Grinch Stole My TWITTER MOMENTS Tab! – One Day It Appeared, Then It Moved, Then It Disappeared, Now It’s BackThursday, December 24th, 2015
Here’s how the Twitter looked this AM after opening a new window:
Then I says to myself, I says, “Oh no, I’m now without TWITTER’s MOST IMPORTANT FEATURE EVER!!!”
But then I double-checked a few minutes later and it turned up once again, like a bad penny:
I have nothing against Moments, but it’s not for me. I only ever click on it by mistake, especially after it switched places with Notifications…
Latest SFCTA SFMTA Public Meeting Promoting the #38 Geary BRT a Kind of Fiasco – Ped Bridges in Japantown in PerilFriday, November 6th, 2015
1. Will the Geary BRT end up being a good thing? IDK.
2. Will the Geary Merchants Association ever accept it? No, definitely not.
3. Will our transit overlords figure out a way to placate Japantown, which is up in arms over the pending destruction of the pedestrian bridges connecting the north side with the south side? Probably, but I don’t know how they’re going to do it.
Here’s some video of Geary merchant David Heller berating said transit overlords, with county worker Peter Lauterborn playing the role Dr. Ian Malcolm from Jurassic Park:
How many Seinfeld-ian moments did I see last night afore I left? A whole bunch.
Oh, and some monkey wrencher(s) stole the registration sign in sheets and some filled-out comment cards? Whoops. Is this kind of thing akin to Target getting hacked and having your email address spread about? Sort of.
On It Goes…
Wow, Look at How Proud San Francisco Firefighters are About Supporting Our Annual Stripper Club Christmas Toy Drive – And Look, Airbnb!Thursday, November 5th, 2015

OMG, Our Bloated SFMTA was Simply Too Busy to Process Faxed Citation Protests, So It Shut Off Its Fax Machine?Tuesday, October 13th, 2015
Here’s your lede, buried:
“When Fixed began faxing its submissions to SFMTA last year, the agency emailed the startup to stop using their fax machine. When Fixed pointed out that it was legal to do so, the agency simply shut off their fax.”
All’s I know about Fixed is the first few posts here.
IDK, I was always skeptical of Fixed’s success percentage claims and, IMO, its employees / contractors should never have touched any official ticket placed on any car, but it’s sort of amusing to see how far our SFMTA will go to protect its big cash cow…
What the SFMTA really wants, in its dreams, is a household transit tax, what would cost you about $500 a year, whether you ride the MUNI or not, and then it wouldn’t have to begging for money as much, and then it wouldn’t have to pay so much heed to any random San Francisco Board of Supervisors Member, you know, fucking Supervisors…
Dream on, SFMTA. And until that day, WAKE UP, SFMTA:
