I’d seen this before, but I hadn’t seen the actual sign:
Still not sure how serious this venture is…
The Logo for My New Company: MISSION BAE – Just Kidding, But I Simply Wanted to Say, “MISSION BAE, MISSION BAE, MISSION BAE!”Tuesday, June 14th, 2016
What should I sell – coffee? People seem to like coffee these days.
Anyway, I ginned up a logo using Photoshop and the goofiest font what randomly popped up. Look, it’s almost legible:
I think I have a tagline already too:
MISSION BAE – LOVIN’ THAT LANDFILL LIVIN’
Start spreading the dirt
I’m leaving today
I want to be a part of it
Mission Bae, Mission Bae
Historic Koshland Mansion, Frisco’s Most Expensive Listing, is Taken Over by HandyCam-Toting Skateboarders – Another Indignity at 3800 WashingtonWednesday, April 27th, 2016
For one brief shining moment, some thought Taylor Swift would buy this long-empty fixer-upper up in Presidio Heights.
Then there was the art-thieving squatter – he’s imprisoned now, AFAIK.
And now this is how things looked last week:
I count five sk8tr boyz recording their tricks up there.
Look for the results on the YouTube.
Our poor, poor Koshland Mansion…
Brace yourselves, Liberty Hill, brace yourselves, Castro / Noe Valley. Here’s what could be in store for you:
“Applicant: Stephen Fowler – 38 Liberty Street (3608/044A); Project Review meeting to discuss the following: Property is part of the Liberty Hill Historic District. Applicant would like to raise building, add a garage, and add a vertical and horizontal additions as well as restore Victorian facade. Applicant is requesting a preservation and environmental planner.”
Hey, didn’t Stephen Fowler just wear out his welcome in Noe Valley just a few years ago, before decamping to the ‘burbs of Marin? I think so. Remember that whole deal, when the denizens of Noe went down to City Hall to argue with the San Francisco Wife Swapper et ux. It was a fiasco. Hey, remember when octogenarian Mr. Hanamura, who got “evicted” in World War II, as a Japanese American, had somebody drop a dime on him to SFGov to get him out of his illegal in-law unit? (Hey, who made that call, I wonder.)
And then up in Marin, there was the Tree Topping Issue, but I won’t get into that.
All right, I’ll show my “work.”
Welcome to the City and County of San Francisco’s Citizen Portal
San Francisco’s Department of Building Inspections and Planning are pleased to offer our citizens, businesses, and visitors access to government services online, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
And look, does he still want to “restore” the front – a spoonful of sugar to make the medicine go down? IDK.
Who knows what’s in store…
Anyway, that’s the update on our infamous Wife Swapper / House Flipper / attemptive Victorian Lifter
Good News, Everybody! That “$3 Million Farmhouse” at 10th and Balboa Sold for LESS Than Asking Price in 2014Friday, September 5th, 2014
Oh, wait a sec, maybe that’s BAD news – it depends on who you are.
Anyway, here’s proof that it’s possible to buy a place in Frisco for less than asking price in the Year Of Our Lord 2014:
One of the asking prices was the “lucky” number of $2,888,888.88, IIRC.
Word on the Street, Outer Avenues Edition: “LEAVE MY CITY, HIPSTER SCUM!” – Pretty Harsh for the Middle RichmondFriday, September 5th, 2014
It would take me a long time to find this billboard again, as I rely on street signs to tell me which Avenue I’m on* after I’ve crossed the city limits and entered SF County. (Anyway, it’s near this place – but is it the Inner Richmond or the Middle Richmond? I just can’t tell.)
I sense a little friction.
“I beg of you, Monsieur, watch yourself. Be on guard. This place is full of hipsters, hipsters everywhere, everywhere.” –The Dark European
*I suppose there are people out there that you could blindfold and then release at some random place in the Richmond District and then they’d know their exact location based upon sounds, wind patterns, smells, etc. You know, ppl with Local Knowledge. I’m not one of those people (even though I was very close to being redistricted into District One a few years back, oh well).
