Commemorating 501 Weeks on the Streets of San Francisco: The FALLEN, FALLEN IS BABYLON Guy

Friday, April 29th, 2016

Just a guess on the 501 weeks part, but this guy’s been out there on Market a long, long time – at least since the aughts.

Anyway, this “one original” man must have “endless stories” of Life on the Street by now.

Remember when Willie Brown turned Market Street into the Champs-Élysées Of The West? I do. And then a good part of it “transformed” into the “world-class” Twitterloin.

But all I see is how much the place has stayed the same…

Monday, April 25th, 2016

Five pilots were necessary for this pizza ad, unless these were drones, which I doubt they were:

The ad was dispersing afore it had even been completed, oh well

“GET FRESHLY BAKED AT PAX.COM” was the mesage I think.

Unusual Lyft Ad: “DISTINGUISHED SOCIETY OF PEOPLE WHO GET IT” – An Appeal to Flattery ala Charles Manson

Friday, April 22nd, 2016

First. let’s talk Cole Street, where Chuck Manson use to live, win friends, and influence people.

Second, let’s move a few blocks over to Masonic, also in the 94117, to see this Mansonesque appeal to flattery:

(Hey, what are Lyft drivers supposed to think about after seeing this, you know, when they themselves are “sitting in traffic, looking for a place to park [or just giving up and parking illegally], and sweating monthly car payments?”)

All right, welcome to the Lyft Family, you good-looking, “clued-in” Gentle Readers you.

Tuesday, April 19th, 2016

Oh, [see Comments] so this IS medicine, of a sort.

In that case, our SFMTA is giving you a green light for your binge-drinking problem, hurrah!

 

Frisco Featured in Audi / Captain America: Civil War Commercial – But Where is This Place? – A Mystery Tunnel

Monday, April 18th, 2016

I suppose this topic is too commercial, literally, for Reddit, but I’ll try.

Where is this place? SoMA, right? I know not.

Here it is, Audi – The Chase:

(Obviously, the tunnel itself isn’t in the 415.)

I’ll tell you, I thought this was a trailer at first, but no, it’s just an Audi ad. (The tone and the music are all wrong for a Major Motion Picture, even one Sponsored By Audi. Oh also, there are too many Audis in this Audi ad.)

Anyway, I should know where this is, but I don’t.

Fooling Frisco’s Tourists: CLIFF HOUSE CHART HOUSE, CHART HOUSE CLIFF HOUSE, CLIFF HOUSE CHART HOUSE

Tuesday, March 29th, 2016

Now even I’m confused, after that copy pasting.

At first, I saw the word HOUSE and I read the cursive writing as CLIFF. But oh, CHART HOUSE, Pier 39. Two stars on Yelp, even with your possible shill reviews thrown in:

And oh yes, bring your money. Lots and lots of money…

Well, HERE’S a Nice Ad Served Up by SFGate – Ooh, an AVN & XBIZ Award Winner – We’re in a New Century Now!

Wednesday, March 16th, 2016

This is how the San Francisco Chronicle makes its money these days:

Captureljggg

Or maybe the the appearance of this ad says more about me/my PC than it says about the Chron,* but it certainly says something about the Chron…

*But IDTS. Heretofore, I’ve only see these local strip club ads on the ‘Xam, IIRC.

Unfortunate SFMTA MUNI Bus Ad Rivets – But This Could be the Height of Fashion in a Few Years…

Friday, March 4th, 2016

Rivets and lights always pose an issue for Clear Channel / SFMTA, operator of America’s Worst Big City Transit Agency:

IRL, these rivets would be painful, but that kind of thing doesn’t seem to stop fashion pioneering…

The Hard Sell Comes to Law Firm Marketing: “TICKET CRUSHERS!” – This Building on Geary is a Bit Loud, Non?

Thursday, March 3rd, 2016

At first I thought it said, “1 800 TICKET HELL”

7J7C1833 copy

Traffic tickets, parking tickets, rather more serious DUI tickets, or other? One wonders.

(One wonders but one doesn’t look it up.)

Anyway, you can’t miss it…
