Huge Panel of Glass Crashes Into the Twitterloin – Photo of Scene Near Twitter and NeMA – Crystal Blue Dissuasion

Thursday, January 16th, 2014

Today’s lunchtime scene of the the Mid-Market Twitterloin Tax-Free Enterprise Zone via Kevin Montgomery and his excellent Uptown Almanac site:

“Outside Twitter HQ, a giant window pane falls. Man on the street starts yelling ‘Crystal Blue! Heiiisenberggg!’”

Did all this glass (you tell me, glaziers – Azuria (nee Azurlite?) fall from a truck or did it come from up high? IDK.

I’ll tell you, the whole reason that Twitter has a bad image around town started off with this:

Prospective Twitter Landlord Gave Newsom Rent Deal

In fact, you all might have better off moving to Brisbane after all, Twitter. A fair percentage of your employees would have preferred that, actually. And it’s not too late to pay your taxes, you know. Why not go back and redo your taxes using the laws that existed a decade ago, the ones signed into law by… former Mayor Gavin Newsom? Yes he signed a payroll tax law that caught part of a company’s stock options when they went public. Why not figure this amount and just donate it to the SF General Fund? People would appreciate it.

The Reason Why the Ponds of Golden Gate Park Look Blue: Because San Francisco Dyes Them That Way?

Friday, June 14th, 2013

Not a pretty blue, an unnatural blue.

Other times, these ponds look more green or aqua.

I guess it’s because Rec and Park or whomever wants to cut down on the amount of light going in, but I can’t prove it to you.

Anyway, this pond looks blue to me IRL, if not so much in this photo:

San Francisco City Hall: The Largest Classical Dome in the Western Hemisphere, Lit in Blue, Yesterday Night

Friday, September 21st, 2012

This is the scene at the end of Dreamforce 2012, one of San Francisco’s largest events in recent memory.

89,999 registrants had moved on at this point last night – here’s the last one:

Yes, the fifth biggest classical dome in the world and first biggest in the New World.

Yes, bigger than the U.S. Capitol. On purpose.

Wow, the WillieBrownGavinNewsomEdLee-Approved Corrupt Twitterloin Never Looked So Good – “You Stay Classy!”

Wednesday, October 19th, 2011

Wow, this one has it all – MUNI’s aqua blue DC Transit #1076, these green Market Street bike lanes, and the Furniture Mart Building, whose former owner created the Twitterloin with a little help from King Willie II, Gavin Newsom.

Of course, King Willie I, the original, is taking credit for the corrupt Twitterloin as well, as is King Willie III, Ed Lee.

A fantastic capture from Nick Fisher:

The Skyline View from Alamo Square in the Western Addition has been Ruined by that Horrible InterContinental San Francisco

Friday, April 8th, 2011

IMO.

So what do we have here, it’s One Rincon Hill, 100 McAllister (The “Towers” of UC Hastings), the yish-send-it-back-to-Miami InterContinental San Francisco at 888 Howard, City Hall, the New Federal Building, a giant tree and a hippie’s peace sculpture:

It’s that blue hotel what doesn’t fit in.

Let’s look forward to its inevitable implosion…

Loud Building, Quiet Person: Staring Out over SoMA for a Good Long Time at the Alexis Kuhn Apartments of St. Patrick’s

Tuesday, November 23rd, 2010

You can’ t really see these orange and aqua tones from inside the one-star-rated Alexis Apartments of St. Patrick’s Parish, so these colors must be for the benefit of people who don’t live there.

O.K.

As seen on Clementina in SoMA

A Decent Turnout for PETA’s Australian Lamb Protest at the TPP Trade Conference

Tuesday, June 15th, 2010

Yesterday’s protest at our Miami-esque InterContinental Hotel on Howard in the SoMA area had a hundred-something attendees, so that’s a pretty good turnout. The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) don’t like the mulesing of sheep in Australia so they don’t want the Trans-Pacific Strategic Economic Partnership meeting to go on business as usual.

 See?

Chrissie Hynde wasn’t able to show yesterday.

Talks among the U.S., Australia, Brunei, Chile, Peru, New Zealand, Singapore and Vietnam are ongoing.
