“IS YOUR CAR BLACKBERRY SECURE?” – IDK – Well, I Hope So

Friday, October 13th, 2017

Man, the name BlackBerry sure is a blast from the past:

I guess they do car stuff now.

All right, on to new business: Is my tummy Tab™️ soda refreshed?

Costco Update: You Know, That’s a GOOD PRICE for 28,000 Oreos

Friday, September 15th, 2017

28,080 to be precise.

This is an ad I got for the Business Center, but I’m just a regular customer who just shops at the regular Costco, oh well.

Anyway, one pallet or two?

And what about seasonal PSL Oreos – seems they should have that as well…

THE FUTURE IS NOW: Free, Ad-Supported, Electric Charging at Serramonte – THE MALL HAS IT ALL

Monday, September 11th, 2017

I guess the ad is what’s new here – I’ve never seen this:

7J7C9385 copy

Serramonte Center is your prototypical mall. It’s undergoing an urbanist-inspired makeover that makes it an even less attractive place to go to. I’ll tell you, I’m not going to go there and then complain about going there on a regular basis, it’s just that my special lady friend had something delivered to the fucking mall (like why would you want to go there?) instead of to herself, by mistake, and of course it wasn’t her mistake. But what can you do? So you drive on down there and there are zero parking spaces and all this, as I said, urbanist-type crap (huge sidewalks, aesthetic plantings what take up a lot of room) that they are constructing. There’s no place to park as they are making new multilevel structures and there’s no real place to drop people off close to the stores. It’s a hybrid of old and new, and it’s not looking good. And of course even after they finish it’s still not going to be good.

JMO.

Here’s our Sunset District as it looked over the weekend. IDK how many of these green utility boxes got hit, but the number could be high based upon what I saw:

One after the other on the (not Los Angeles-related) Sunset Boulevard:

Uh, you can’t do this in Frisco, right?

Typical Prius Driver, as Seen Even AFTER Backing Up a Bit at a Red Light – The Dangers of Reversing at Lights

Tuesday, September 5th, 2017

Not too sure how cognizant this driver is.

7J7C9005 copy

And actually, there _was_ a ped on the street just behind this Prius – perhaps it was from somebody switching seats in a neighboring car. But the general rule is to not back up after making this kind of stopping in a crosswalk mistake.

Just saying.

There are pros and cons of course, but the kind of people who don’t know where to stop are the kind of people who get into more trouble by backing up to fix a mistake.

Anyway, Prius Driver* Bad, uncomfortable with vehicles / driving is what I’m saying…

* And the neighboring Landy driver is also bad, but less so.

Ad for Area Attorney Looks Even More Bad-Ass After the Inevitable Street Tagging

Tuesday, September 5th, 2017

From far away, it appeared as if he had mad finger bling or perhaps a metal knuckle-duster

You want THIS GUY on YOUR SIDE, non? Seems he’s willing to put up a fight…

Frisco Pot Bus – This Neoplan AN440A #43 Masonic Used to be a Square, But Now Hangs in the Haight

Tuesday, August 22nd, 2017

What a nerd, Man. Old #8127 used to be a regular bus.

But now, this is how it rolls, this is how Frisco rolls:

All right, that’s a wrap:

SFMTA Ad for “EMPOWERWORK.org” – If You Work in the White House, This Would be a Good Place to Contact – Otherwise, ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Thursday, August 3rd, 2017

So what do we have here, a phone number and a website? Well, that aint much, I’ve got that.

But what I don’t have is my very own SFMTA bus stop* ad in the 94117.

7J7C7113 copy

I’m stumped, but here’s a clue.

In closing, 🤔.

*This one’s on Hayes. I’d say that it’s a necessary one, cause it’s close to Masonic. What’s not necessary is the next stop, which is just nine freaking seconds away at the other end of this short block. It’s just one more giant barnacle on the hull of SS MUNI.

BART Riders OUTRAGED by Ads for CARS – “We All Drive” and “Try These Seats” – First Ford GOBIKE, and Now This

Wednesday, August 2nd, 2017

Boy, Ford Motor Company is throwing a lot of money around the Bay Area lately, huh? They bought the Chariot private bus line for big bucks, and they just spent another big pile of money to advertise the word FORD on thousands of controversial GOBIKE rental bikes (with a misleading pricing scheme – boy people get steamed about that) and now there’s this, a bunch of covered over windows on your BART cars with a custom-made copy. See?

First up is a snap from a “professional” walker. It’s all, “Try these seats,” as if they’d be better than BART seats. (NB: They are better than BART seats.) But you know, some riders will take offense at this profit-seeking insult to transit, and also with the half covered over windows. Most BART ads aren’t like this:

And there’s this: “We all drive.” But you know, that’s not exactly true, now is it, Ford?

I’ll tell you, these ads appear to be custom-made for BART. I don’t think you’ll see them anywhere else in the world.

These ads on our troubled BART system remind me of the UBER ads on SFMTA MUNI buses, like this one:

7J7C5730-copy

And this one:

7J7C1904-copy

Of course our SFMTA simply despises the UBER Lyft, for various reasons, but that doesn’t mean that it will turn down some cold hard cash from major corporations. And then, when the SFMTA has some extra ad space, which is a lot of the time since its rates are too high, it’ll put UBER Lyft in its place with stuff like this:

Anyway, if Ford wants to pay BART money, that’s fine with me…
