Summer of 92, in All It’s Glory

Tuesday, October 17th, 2017

You know when I think of the Summer of 92, I think of all those movies I never saw and never will.

Nah, actually this shot makes me think of the ex-CHP ’84 Mustang LX I sold right afore I moved here…

Pork Store: You Know, You Didn’t See This Kind of Patriotic Display on MUNI Buses _Before_ the Trump Administration

Regular MUNI:

America, fuck yeah MUNI:

Is this to thank the feds for all the pork over the years? Or a way to get tax and fee payers to like the MUNI just like 1% more? Or a way to play with a new feature of buses?

IDK. But I aint never seen this, in all my years…

Frisco’s First Official “Lyft PICKUP AND DROP-OFF ZONE” – It’s Just Temporary, But Is This Our Future?

Monday, October 16th, 2017

Here you go, at the foot of MLK, Jr. Drive:

Just a temporary deal, for fans of “Your San Francisco Deltas” professional* soccer team:

(A mini convertible Cadillac Escalade and a convertible Jeep are at the ready.)

So, is this kind of temporary pop-up zone going to be a part of Frisco’s Future? Maybe. (Our SFMTA is working on this kind of thing, to reduce double-parking, for starters. We’ll see.)

So, are UBER drivers welcome here as well? IDK

And then, are UBER / Lyft drivers welcome here? Again, IDK.

IMO, this kind of branding should have nothing to do with RPD, and SFGov should be above this kind of “public private partnership.” So, Wreck and Park should ditch the trademarked pink and the “lyft” graphics the next chance it gets, which will be in a couple weeks, for the last match of the regular season of the San Francisco Deltas.

See you there. (But I’ve never Lyfted, and I’ve never UBER’ed neither, and I’m not about to start. Pity me!)

*It was a big deal for Rec and Park to set up Kezar for this inaugural 2017 season, which could very well be this team’s last season, we’ll have to wait and see.

Wood Appears to have Been a Poor Choice for the Brand New Benches of the Golden Gate Park Panhandle

Friday, October 13th, 2017

This was the vision, mostly that of landed gentry millionaires with Strong Ideas about How Things Should Look:

And this is the reality, of Life in the 94117:

And this is the kind of post-vandalism fix-it job you can expect from Rec and Park, about a week or two after residents call the 311:

Not saying I could do better, but we’re down to bare wood here people, with no finish at all on all, pretty soon, looks like.

This vignette makes me think Wood Appears to have Been a Poor Choice for the Brand New Benches of the Golden Gate Park Panhandle.

END OF LINE.

As the Chevy Volt –> VOLTRON, the New Chevy Bolt –> BOLTRON

Friday, October 13th, 2017

Voltron you know already, now here’s BOLTRON, which costs about $20k more than what it looks like it should, but otherwise seems fine, for those who can charge at home or at work.

All right, on to new business: Is my tummy Tab™️ soda refreshed?
