Special “Rolling Billboard” Advertising Truck Parking on the Sidewalks of Market Street – Your 1st Amendment in Action

Thursday, August 11th, 2016

I’ll tell you, SFGov DOES NOT LIKE these advertising trucks rolling about the streets of San Francisco, but there’s not much Frisco can do about them.

I suppose a parking ticket would be in order…

CARMAnation is Still Trying to “Disrupt Parking” in Frisco – Hey, Remember MonkeyParking?

Friday, July 15th, 2016

Here’s the pitch..

and here’s the story, from a couple years back.

Hi All,

You cannot monetize public assets for individual company gain. Just because an app can be built, doesn’t mean it should be.

I’m a Co-Founder and CEO of a San Francisco based startup called CARMAnation (www.carmanation.com). We look to help solve parking issues via the true intentions of the sharing economy – working with the community to benefit the community. Our users share their PRIVATE available parking spots with one another.

Having tech startups trying to solve the parking problems with their own unique approach means there is a need to disrupt the industry. Technology is a wonderful thing, it can solve/simplify a lot of problems, but it has to be done right, otherwise “Monkey Parking” is what happens.”

I wonder how they’re doing.

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…

This Rolling Billboard-on-Wheels Truck is Unstoppable – SFGov is Powerless to Regulate – Guess Which Amendment Protects Them

Friday, March 25th, 2016

That’s right, our First Amendment prevents local regulation, pretty much.

Read it and weep, Frisco!

So there’s nothing to stop the crush of these orange Boost ads from circling and circling during rush hour.

Oh well

We would circle and we’d circle and we’d circle to stop and consider and centered on the pavement stacked up all the trucks jacked up and our wheels in slush and orange crush in pocket and all this here county, hell, any county, it’s just like heaven here, and I was remembering and I was just in a different county and all then this whirlybird that I headed for I had my goggles pulled off; I knew it all, I knew every back road and every truck stop…

 

So We’re Still Advertising for ORACLE Years After the America’s Cup Fiasco? – Yes, on the Temporary Pier 80 Homeless Shelter

Friday, March 11th, 2016

Did Larry Ellison ever get those 99-year leases he wanted from us, you know, in exchange for making us all rich, for “activating” our “world-class” “natural amphitheater?”

I’ll tell you, back in aught-ten, a newcomer had just moved to town – he called the original deal, the southern waterfront 99-year lease proposal, a “wonderful opportunity without a downside.” Of course we had a lot of downsides, and we’re still paying for them. Is this giant ad going to be here forever, or as long as the building is with us?

This sign has been up for what, a half-decade now? One wonders why…

Well, here you go:

And then all the triangles blew off to the southwest over Sutro Tower:

One leg and then the other and then you have a perfect equilateral triangle, or a Dorito I s’pose:

From the Middle of Town, It’s Real Hard to Tell San Francisco is Hosting SB50 Super Week This Year – This Aerial Ad Is It

Friday, February 5th, 2016

The only thing I know about this company is quite negative, oh well.

Anyway, I’ve never seen this banner and its concomitant airplane above my noggin, so I must conclude that this flying ad is Super Bowl-related

7J7C0325 copy

And now that the football people have taken away the giant metal “50” ad from Alamo Square, there’s really no way to tell we’re just two days away from (almost) hosting Super Bowl L / Super Bowl 50.

Just saying.

OK, play ball!

Hey, is That Notorious “Bluewolf” Salesforce DreamForce Chalk Ad Company Making Amends with SFMTA Bus Advertising?

Thursday, October 8th, 2015

IDK.

Here’s your background.

I’ve never seen an ad like this afore:

7J7C7595 copy

How long did it take to create, one wonders? About two seconds?

No matter, I’m sure SFGov is starting to think of the bluewolf as a good corporate citizen now…
