Parts from many stolen “donor bikes” are here – maybe a couple dozen?
And how many Franken-bikes could you build with the parts here? IDK, maybe a half-dozen?
On It Goes…
That was the windup, now here’s the pitch.
They look almost ready to open at this star-crossed building what’s been shut down for years and years, IIRC.
Oh, the Seattle location has surprisingly low Yelp rating, IMO.

Here’s your Twitterloin status report:
Hey look, it’s COMING SOON FOR LEASE, which it has been for a couple years now.
Which is not to say it’s never used – the Hillary campaign used it for a few hours a few months back and the occasional conventioneer comes through, thusly:
But here’s what the promise was:
What I’m suggesting is this – if nobody wants this building, after, what, $20 million was sunk into it, then maybe it’s not a symbol of rebirth for the Tender / Twitter Loin? Perhaps it’s a symbol of all the empty promises and projections what come year after year, decade after decade?
Anyway, look for this building to continue to be COMING SOON FOR LEASE in 2017 as well…
So this is Twitter mural in the ‘Loin, so that gives us The Twitterloin, a phrase endorsed by our East Coast Media Elites:
Ironically, a good portion of the Tworkforce at the Twitter would have prefered being HQ’ed down in nearby Brisbane, CA.
Ironically, Twitter would’ve have moved into that building at 10th and Market anyway, without any enterprise zone tax incentives.
From the Joe Dimaggio Building:
“What I don’t understand, is why you ask where I’ve gone. I just did a Mr. Coffee commercial, I’m a spokesman for the Bowery Savings Bank and I haven’t gone anywhere!”
As it looks from my ‘hood at Zero Dark Thirty:
Artist’s conception of finished tower after installation:
The Terrible Zigûr will keep an “eye” on Mount Sutro, depicted at right, and maybe buy Twitter, who knows.
When asked for comment, Gorthaur the Cruel cryptically bellowed, “Bedrock, baby!”
That’s a good one, Sauron. Keep ’em coming.
Welcome to town, Dark Lord.
