That would be SFMTA MUNI DPT – they’re all “UPDATE YOUR MAKEUP.” See?

So then I talked with ppl and they’re telling my look is “so 2011,” but everybody was afraid to tell me. I guess I will need to “UPDATE.”

Thanks for the tough love, MUNI! I needed it.

Well, look what I saw just after I encountered this political ad on Geary this afternoon

How come I know this rule and London Breed and/or her ppl don’t?

As Seen Near Mervyn’s Heights: “Angela Alioto for MAYOR – She Can’t Be Bought!” – All Right, But Who Brought All That Up?

Monday, March 5th, 2018

So, some of her opponents can be bought – is that the implication?

Doesn’t seem the right slogan for her…

*Oh, it just occurred to me that she might be talking about her personal wealth and how it might keep her from being influenced too much by Area Billionaires or Entrenched Labor Union Interests, or things like that. You know, like Trump used to say / imply. But it seems he’s awfully influenced anyway as things turn out. No, I think there’s a better way to get this message across than the above from Angela.  

ZERO Anything and Anything ZERO are Usually Not Possible – This Large Ad on Market Proved the Point

Friday, March 2nd, 2018

Here’s the ad that promoted, and I’m srsly, an “international” anti graffiti meet-up in Frisco back in 2013. See what happened to it?


Malaria Zero? Possible.

AIDS Zero? Possible, over the long term.

Vision Zero 2024 San Francisco? Ridiculously not possible.

And of course Graffiti Zero? Not possible.

If you wish to promote your movement using ZERO Anything or Anything ZERO in 2018, time’s running out before you’ll need to find a new catch phrase…

This Richmond District Mom Appears to be a Bad Driver – VW Shows Off “PEDESTRIAN MONITORING” in the Avenues – See the Video

Wednesday, February 28th, 2018

Via your locally-owned and operated RICHMOND DISTRICT BLOG we discover this new ad for the 2018 VW Atlas SUV.

However, there’s something wrong with this driver if she can’t see this kid at or well before this point in time:


The VW appears to be 50+ feet from where the errant kid was soon going to be in the above.

Here’s the whole thing:

Not saying that Frisco pedestrians aren’t horrible, just saying that PEDESTRIAN MONITORING shouldn’t have been necessary here.

And just as we don’t want to lull peds into a false sense of security, we don’t want to do the same with drivers.

(And when driving on our wide wide avenues at 25 MPH or less, one has a higher safety margin when more towards the middle of this street, so she should have been more to her left, generally, assuming that no oncoming traffic was oncoming.)

(Also, no FLP (Front License Plate), which of course is required in CA. Unless you have your reg in the front window ’cause your new car is so new that you haven’t gotten your plate from the DMV yet, but the reg isn’t in the window either. That’s a MINUS 5 for Hufflepuff House, as you’ll get cited by the SFPD, CHP, or the SFMTA, the big three of area FLP enforcement)

IOW, I question the Hollywood crowds’ ability to show this safety feature in this case…
