The Rich Whites of Pacific Heights REALLY REALLY Heart Black Cars, Chapter Two – Even Ferraris are Black Up There

Wednesday, April 20th, 2016

I already showed you ten in a row, up on Broadway:


But now let’s check out the ritzy part of our 94115. Here’s five right here:

And right next door, with the roof of the Land Rover from above in the lower right corner. (And here I thought all Ferrari(s) are red.)

So that’s seven black luxury cars all bunched up parked outside on Jackson.

And what’s inside the garages? At least seven more black cars, obvs.

Prove me wrong!

Black Cars in Specific Whites: The Rich People of Pac Heights Don’t Like Colors – Ten in a Row on Broadway

Tuesday, April 12th, 2016

I’ll tell you, back in the day, in Japan, looking out the airport bus window, I was surprised to see a Nissan Fairlady Z police car but also I was surprised to see that most cars on the road there were plain-Jane white sedans, and it was like, “Oh yeah, most cars are white here in Japan.”

Oh. News to me.

But check the scene here, in Frisco – ten vehicles in a row on the street what are painted black. (Now, there’s a covered-up motorcycle in this parade, but you just gotta know that it’s painted all black as well. C’mon, this is Frisco, where people in groups on the street wear black from head to toe, or almost do so.) Anyway, Y SO SRS, 94115?

I mean, Tokyo has moved on, so why can’t you?

I wear Black on the outside
Cause Black is how I feel on the inside
I wear Black on the outside
Cause Black is how I feel on the inside

And if I seem a little strange
Well, that’s because I am
If I seem a little strange
That’s because I am

But I know that you would like me
If only you could see me
If only you could meet me

I don’t have much in my life
But take it – it’s yours
I don’t have much in my life
But take it – it’s yours

These people on Post in their 80(!) year old, concours-ready ride are from car-obsessed L.A., I’m guessing…

Extremely Airbnb People, 94115

Monday, November 10th, 2014

I mean, extremely. There’s no way they’d be hanging about the Western Addition like this, without a clue whether their next step is to the north, south, east, or west, but for Airbnb, or something like Airbnb.

Of course, some welcome this development and others don’t.

No matter, it’s an ongoing revolution

Abbey Road, 94115 – Typical San Francisco Pedestrians

Tuesday, July 22nd, 2014

Bros on Geary:

Vision Zero is SFGov’s commitment to having MUNI bus drivers and other SFGov employees* stop killing pedestrians by the year 2024.

Why can’t the SFMTA just simply stop killing pedestrians right now in 2014?

The World Wonders…

*And, of course, everybody else in the world as well, but your odds of getting killed by one of those billions of non-SFGov employees is infinitesimally smaller than getting killed by an SFGov employee. The SFMTA could take steps right now for safety, steps that wouldn’t cost all that much money, but it simply doesn’t want to.

Do The Tennis Courts at the Hamilton Rec Center Look More Like Chernobyl or San Francisco?

Mother Nature is slowly reclaiming Hamilton Recreation Center at 1960 Geary Boulevard in the 94115. See?

Some cities near Chernobyl, Ukraine were evacuated after Reaktor 4 had a “power excursion” causing the famous Mini Meltdown of 1986 (the one that threw up 400 times as much fallout as the bomb at Hiroshima.) Those ghost towns probably have similar scenes…
