Sometimes I just don’t know…

Tuesday, March 26th, 2013

I don’t know, You Make The Call on how wrong this Cadillac commercial is:

Apparently, San Francisco and Los Angeles are the same place.

Apparently, Brad Pitt just looooooves grandpa cars.

Apparently, Brad Pitt is a whore and his price is $3,000,000.

Apparently.

Codename Stagecoach: Barack Obama’s Cadillac Monster Truck Passes By the Ferry Building

Friday, February 17th, 2012

All the deets of yesterday’s drive-by:

A specially designed and outfitted armored vehicle with DTS styling and a high-roof fitted to a GM four-wheel drive chassis was used in the second inauguration of U.S. President George W. Bush. While details of the modified vehicle, codenamed Stagecoach, remain classified, previous such vehicles indicate that it would have been upgraded with advanced armor and safety features in order to protect the president from various threats. 

“Its successor entered service with President Barack Obama on January 20, 2009. According to GM, the manufacturer, the “2009 Cadillac Presidential Limousine” is the first not to carry a specific model name. The vehicle is a combination of a Cadillac limousine body on the chassis/platform of a GMC Topkick commercial truck and bears styling cues from the CTS and Escalade models as opposed to the DTS.”

POTUS was worried that he’d get too excited about seeing San Francisco’s new and improved, almost-America’s-Cup-ready “World Class Waterfront,” so he decided to take a nap.

Best of all, it’s a Cadillac: 

Good call, Mr. President.

How Not to Park Your Cadillac Escalade in the Western Addition – Next Time, Turn Your Wheels the Other Way

Friday, April 22nd, 2011

Multiple tickets on this ride indicate that this otherwise-legal parking job will end up costing the driver three-figures.

Oh well…

(What’s stopping a PCO from coming back every hour to add yet another ticket for the same violation? Don’t know…)

Group-Buying Websites are All the Rage in the 415 – $4 Movie Tickets are Back

Friday, May 21st, 2010

I’ll tell you, the kids these days, they want to get a deal, but they want their friends in on it to. Or something. I’m not sure how all it all works, but all’s I know is that I don’t see the downside to forking over four bones, waiting for a letter in the post and then going to an AMC theater like Metreon or AMC Van Ness to catch a movie.

You’ll party cause it’s priced like 1999 (or earlier). Speaking of which, I’ll remember that year as the era of the WebVan – the things were double-parked all over town. Anyway, they would pick up your choice of DVD or videotape at BlockBuster, deliver it to you, and then pick it up a few days later, all for free! Of course you still had to pay the rental fee, but you had to wonder how the transaction made money. (It didn’t, actually. I think the investors got 1% of their investment back, by selling off the vans and the Herman Miller chairs, an icon of the era. ) 

Anyway, check out this kgb Deal, comrade. (They’re saying $4 is the 1989 price to see a movie. I forget, but it sounds credible.) KGB is a new outfit, so I assume that they’re offering a good deal to make a splash.

In Soviet Russia, KGB deal with you, but in America, KGB give you deal. America, what a country!

Check the deets – they’re only mailing out to bay area addresses.

IMO, this is a good, albeit small, deal.

Choose wisely.
