Mind you, Burger King has enough trouble in the notoriously high cost 415 without worrying about delivery, but read the news and turn the pages, below. (Looks like Oakland’s going to beat us, once again.)

Wonder if BK’ll accept EBT Electronic Benefit Transfer food stamps as payment the way some San Francisco Burgers King do already, you know, gladly.

Anyway:

The local Andronico’s supermarket chain, home to an insane collection of fruits and vegetables, is seeking bankruptcy protection, per the San Francisco Business Times.

Their website is down now, but the stores are open and they’ll continue to be open for the foreseeable future.

Remembering Burger King’s “BK Quad Stacker” – The Aughts Were a Heck of a Decade

Thursday, March 31st, 2011

Actually, never had a BK Stacker myself, but I ‘member this garbage bin cover/poster from a few years back anyway.

Understand that the Quad is an off-menu item at best these days, oh well.

But we’ll have our memries, won’t we?

(And those memories are probably a lot better than the reality, based upon this photo of a real-life Quad Stacker from back in the day. Oh well)

This Work Van on Geary Proves that Muzak Still Exists

Saturday, July 11th, 2009

Is this the FBI undercover? Probably not, so this must be a genuine Muzak vehicle. Can you believe that they’re still operating after all these years?

There was that BK business (in industry parlance “BK” means bankruptcy, for some odd reason) earlier in the year, but obviously that hasn’t kept the rolling stock from rolling.

They’ve got ladders and everything. As seen recently on San Francisco’s Geary Boulevard:

Now this is what rocker Ted Nugent had to say about Muzak a while back:

It’s an evil force in today’s society, causing people to lapse into uncontrollable fits of blandness. It’s been responsible for ruining some of the best minds of our generation.”

In fact, the Motor City Madman actually offered to buy the company for the sole purpose of shutting it down. Harsh.

But let’s hear from the Muzakians themselves:

Music is art, but Muzak is science. And when you employ the science of Muzak: in an office, workers tend to get more done, more efficiently, and feel happier. In an industrial plant, people feel better and, with less fatigue and tension, their jobs seem less monotonous. In a store, people seem to shop in a more relaxed and leisurely manner. In a bank, customers are generally more calm, tellers and other personnel are more efficient. In general, people feel better about where they are; whether it’s during work or leisure time. Muzak is all this and more. That’s why we say Muzak is much more than music.”

O.K. fine. This incomprehensible MUZAK STIMULUS PROGRESSION CHART proves something, just not sure what that is:

Don’t stop believing, Muzak. Never stop believing.

All the Muzak channels, after the jump.

Know Your Legion of Honor Faberge Eggs: #5 Kelch Bonbonnière Egg

Saturday, April 11th, 2009

The fantastic Artistic Luxury exhibit at the Legion of Honor Museum continues. Read all about it here and here.

But what about the Faberge Eggs? Here’s one from 1903: The Kelch Bonbonnière Egg:

Click to expand.

It looks as if it could be an Imperial Egg, the likes of which were given to royal family members back in the day, but it’s a Kelch Egg. The unseen initials B.K. (no, not Blood Killas, nor British Knights, nor Berkelium, nor Burger King) tell the story – they stand for Barbara (aka Varvara) Kelch:

Every year from 1898 until 1904 Alexander Kelch ordered an Easter egg from Fabergé, modeled on the Imperial series, as a present for his wife, who no doubt also paid for them. No doubt, too, that the Kelch eggs cost them considerably more than those made for the Imperial family, given the parsimony of the Romanovs and the generosity of the nouveaux riches. The seven Kelch eggs are as fine, if not even more sumptuous, than those in the Imperial series.”

Mmmmm… sumptuous.

Eggs, precious eggs!
