Thursday, November 2nd, 2017

Well, not really, but both these decals say 2018 on them, so this driver can look forward to a year of MORE THAN two hours of free parking in two different parts of Frisco:

I am Become EUROTRASH, Destroyer of Worlds

Friday, July 7th, 2017

Hey, what was MSRP for this hunk of Alcoa aluminum fashioned into a Ferrari 612 four-seater? Was it $300k? Anyway, paying tax and reg to DMV would cost you a pretty penny, and even if you are registered, it’s still cooler for you to use your Euro plates regardless.

And the neighboring Saab shows us the other way to Eurotrash

Five Adorable Grey Fox Babies Under the Boardwalk of Muir Woods Natl. Mnmt. are Creating a Stir

Monday, May 22nd, 2017

Just like last year.

One of the playful kits:

And here’s the stir:

Annual membership MWNP / MWNM is just $40 (which gets four in at any time for a whole year), but I shan’t renew as the feds are fed up with all the people here, so a privately-operated for-profit parking system is a-coming. (I wasn’t aware that it was so bad to park next to the creek.) Anywho, there are a lot of ways to get in an around Muir Woods without getting in a traffic jam, waiting for parking, or, far that matter, paying any fees at all.

Basically, the toll gate at the main entrance is only for inbound travelers and there are a lot of other entrances.

Anyway, they want fewer people/tourists milling about the main entrance / gift shop, and that’s what they’ll get. I’ll see you all as I exit through the gift shop.

Annual 420 Day 2017 – 1) Huge Vapor Cloud; 2) Minors’ Meadow; 3) The Bum Rush; 4) Unnecessary Street Closures 5) SFGov Featherbedding

Thursday, April 20th, 2017

1) Hippie Hill before 4:20 PM:

Hippie Hill at 4:20 PM:

2) People were getting carded at the gate, so what to do? How about hang out betwixt Kezar and Stanyan, how’s that? A high school scene:

7J7C0837 copy

3) Alternatively, there’s always the bum rush. Hundreds made it through this one rupture over a period of about three minutes. Security guard in the yellow on the left there knew just what to do – he shut things down with a quickness. You can see some of the lucky ones past the gate to the left of the unecessary ambulance. Why would you bum rush? You’re a minor, you want to bring in your glass bong, and/or you didn’t want to wait so long in line – those are my top three guesses:

4) Traffic was going pretty good until SFGov started shutting down streets:

7J7C0822 copy

I don’t know why they do this – seems an overreaction:

7J7C0828 copy

So Hayes Street temporarily becomes New Fell Street

7J7C0843 copy

Count the #21 Hayeseses totally stuck in traffic:

7J7C0850 copy

5) So when SFGov complains about how much money it has to spend on Annual 420 Day, leaving aside how much effort it puts into promoting tourism, like how it sent its white collar worker$ to “volunteer,” you know, on the clock, for the NFL’s Super Bowl Experience or whatever the Hell it was called last year, take a look at this unecessary featherbedding – it’s a street sweeper sweeping nothing. How much does this cost, a $1000? IDK

7J7C0830 copy

Anyway, all this foo forall seems a make-work program for SFGov to placate the millionaire homeowners in the area, you know, on Annual 420 Day.

Abraham Lincoln Brigade (16) Takes Market – Twice as Good as the Van Buren Boys (8) – Annual Nerd Conference Continues

Tuesday, June 14th, 2016

There were warning signs:

But I wasn’t prepared. I wasn’t prepared for this gang of blackshirts headed down Market:

I was going to flash “16” to them to show I was down, but I didn’t know how.

(Guess all it takes to form an army in Frisco is free box lunch and giveaway T-shirts. And flags. Lots o’ flags…)

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…
