There are about a half-dozen classic cars parked around the end of Turk Street up above USF like all the time.

It’s a triple-beam lyrical dream for old car lovers:

The above shot is recent, but here’s one from all the way back in aught-eight. See ‘em all?

Boy, the UCSF Laurel Heights Campus is Nothing But a Big Fat Waste of 10 Acres – Let’s Hope This Changes Soon

Wednesday, June 18th, 2014

I don’t know when this UC “campus” got built, but just look at what was in fashion back in the day:

Huge empty lawns and huge empty driveways that never get used. What were they thinking? Were these lawns a “gift” to the people of San Francisco? Were they something we wanted or appreciated paying for? IDK.

I could see this place out in the country where there’s plenty of space, but I don’t know what it’s doing in SF.

Anyway, we’ll be enjoying this campus as we walk, ride, and drive by for the next half-decade, it looks like.

And then, who knows.

The Infamous Driveway-Blocking BMW of the Western Addition, Seen Here Promoting 7×7, San Francisco’s Favorite “Luxury Magazine”

Wednesday, May 28th, 2014

For shame, 7×7, for shame.

Blocking peoples’ driveways is what turns NIMBYs from human beings into NIMBYs. It drivers them crazy.

Please oh please, 7×7, will you promise not to block any driveway ever again?

Now here you go, this isn’t illegal parking at all.

Baby steps, 7×7. Baby steps.

K thx bye
