AIRSERV IS HIRING at SFO, Looks Like

Thursday, January 12th, 2017

But where you’re going to live and how you’re going to get to the airport every day, well, that’s up to you. The pay seems pretty low for the pricy Bay Area

Frank Chu and His Signs, December 2016

Thursday, December 29th, 2016

Frank ran into some trouble back in the 1980’s but I’ve never had any issues with him, after hundreds of encounters at area events over the decades.

If I had to guess, SHEPARD is for astronaut Alan Shepard and AIRCRAFT CARRIERS is a reference to the Russian-built Admiral Kuznetsov / Varyag / Liaoning and the like. I mean they’re sort of like aircraft carriers:

Expensify is paying the bills these days:

This guy from Quiznos sandwiches cut an ad deal with Frank a long time ago, and that put then-unknown Quiznos on the map, or so the story goes.

Leaving you with this – here he is from a decade back at the final Castro Halloween, when he encountered some dude dressed as Frank Chu. (And later that night, a kid from the projects shot nine people on Market near Noe and that was the end of Halloween in the Castro.)

Is This UBER Filming an S-Class Mercedes-Benz Driving About Frisco’s Financh?

Friday, December 9th, 2016

And when I say UBER, I mean some people hired by UBER for some marketing effort.

And when I say filming, I mean videoing, or recording, or whathaveyou, as it’s prolly a digital camera what Bro was pointing out of the back of the black SUV, as seen on California in the 94104.

Anyway, one Googles and sees:

Uber Has Apparently Ordered $10 Billion Worth of Mercedes S-Class Sedans. That’s a lot of expensive luxury cars for an app dedicated to undercutting local taxi prices.

Perhaps there’s a connection here, IDK.

Oh Lord, won’t you buy me 100,000 self-driving Mercedes Benzes?
My friends all have Porsches, I must makes amendses

“IF ONLY” Bus Ad: What?

Tuesday, December 6th, 2016

OK, I’ll bite.

Oh.

No sale.

But WTF to this:

“Shakira’s gown from the “Get It Started” video: $3,000″

So you’re not selling an aging pop singer’s dress, you’re selling the experience of buying the aging pop singer’s dress?

And this:

“I encourage my friends to join nonprofit boards, collect art and buy great houses.”

Yes, don’t we all.

Giant Facebook Ad, Frisco

Thursday, December 1st, 2016

These 17 foot tall “kiosks” are simply giant ads – they’re said to pay for public toilets on the street that you need to pay for, ‘except where’s the toilet?

20161130_065403-copy

You see what I’m saying?

I know there’s one atop Twin Peaks, and in Civic Center, and I think there’s one near the cable car turnaround at the foot of Powell, but that’s far far away from Battery here.

I’m thinking this ad program has too many cheesy kiosks and not enough public toilets…

(And some things in Life are more important than your momentary delight with your most recent burrito.)

…Has It All

The stuff we sell is just the best
Passing all consumer test
Days of heaven nights of sin
Voodoo stick and sharks fin
When all around you seems like hell
Just one sip will make you well
Multipurpose in a jar
If you ain’t ill it’ll fix your car
In days of yore for all bad feelings
Washing socks and stripping ceilings
Nowadays its used medicinally
For all known human malady

It was really vile weather
When we got to tarred and feathered
You could hear the six guns sound
As they chased us out of town

Guaranteed don’t you know
Money back?
You’ll get a no!
It’s the one and only medicine show
