Sadly, This is the Best Photo I’ve Ever Taken of Any of the New Red Pandas at Our San Francisco Zoo

Wednesday, March 4th, 2015

I think it has to do with the lighting, or something.

All the deets

Here’s a couple things. This here was something that wasn’t covered when I was in elementary school, just saying. And the Census Bureau sometimes still likes to claim that its data has never been handed over to other governmental agencies, but we learned otherwise a few years back.

Hey Look! DDG Partners and DM DEVELOPMENT Team Up to Evict the Homeless Encampment at the New 8 Octavia Condo Building

Thursday, May 1st, 2014

[UPDATE: At least one person has moved back in, as of May Day 2014.]

Here’s your before, at the corner of Market Street and the man-made disaster of Octavia “Boulevard,” from just last month, April 2014, IDK, 10 days ago?

See down below, those cardboard boxes were the start of a homeless encampment that stretched north up the Boulevard:

How many people slept there each night? IDK, but there were spaces for like a dozen people.

Anyway, that was then and this is now – this is how things look today, May 1st, after the recent clean up:

See that? Homeless people be gone, replaced by “ol ol g” (DDG, for those of you who don’t read Starchitect or whatever the hell that font is called) and DM DEVELOPMENT, ’cause, you know, it just wouldn’t do to have those glorious names residing over where people reside.

Oh, and here’s the pitch:

Design

DM Development collaborates with visionary architects and interior designers to create remarkable living spaces that push the boundaries of design.

That’s your 8 Octavia condo update. Look for the banner ads soon – it won’t be long now… 

Homeless People Have Already Moved In at the 8 Octavia Construction Site

Wednesday, March 19th, 2014

They’ve been here for a while. The construction crew is cool with it, but this arrangement can’t last much longer:

Here’s the spiel for this brand new building, and they mention the names of many many local bidnesses and institutions, for some reason:

Absinthe
Arlequin To Go
Bar Jules
Cafe Altano
Cafe Corbas
Christopher Elbow Chocolates
Domo
Fatted Calf
Charcuterie
Frjtz

They go on and on…

More after the jump.

OMG, It’s Yet Another Mid-Market Camp-Out in Front of Sheikh Shoes – Remember That Big Fight on Market Street?

Wednesday, November 14th, 2012

I do. It was back in the the Summer of 2012 – see below.

Anyway, this was the scene late last night:

Ah mem’ries:

Wow, this one has it all.

Via Bluoz and from the perspective of those in line at the Nike Air Yeezy 2 campout at Sheikh shoes, it’s:

“Air Yeezy 2 Campout Fight in SF”

Just 23 views so far, but this one, she’s a gonna go viral.

“Air Yeezy 2 campout fight in the Tenderloin District of San Francisco. All this happened while we were in line at Shiekh Shoes. This crackhead hopped on the front of the trolly and wouldn’t get off, so when the lady in pink tried to be a hero she got a SMACK SMACK to the face. Air Yeezy campout. Shout out to the homies that were holding my spot down for me while I was at work. Big thanks.”

Color commentary:

“Get her, Grandma!”

“She’s leaking. She’s leaking.” (In reference to AC TRANSIT BUS FIGHT I AM A MOTHERFUCKER, aka AC Transit Bus Fight)

“That’s some crazy shit – laid out under a train.”

Oh, and then a mess of cops showed up.

Of course, the solution to all this is to give Twitter $20,000,000 and its own bus line so it stays in town.

Mayor Ed Lee Gets It Done!

RUN ED, RUN!

“Toxic Soil” From the Former OccupySF Encampment at Justin Herman Plaza Hauled Off – New Turf Rolls Out Tomorrow

Tuesday, December 13th, 2011

Do you know how many dogs died at OccupySF? I don’t but that’s Topic A whenever you discuss OccupySF with any member of our “City Family” these days.

The bocce ball courts are still shut down as DPW and RPD and who knows who all else set about fixing the place up and generating a seven-figure clean-up bill.

The old turf was put in four months ago. Mulching for the new turf:

Thus ends OccupySF 2011.

It’s a Trap! What the Site Proposed by the City Family for OccupySF Looks Like, Down at 15th and Mission

Thursday, November 24th, 2011

Well here’s the site proposed for OccupySF 2011 down at 15th and Mission.

It’s a death trap, it’s a suicide rap for OccupySF:


Via Steve Rhodes – click to expand

Here’s the 411 from Luke Thomas from a few days back (in an article that also features Kat Anderson’s report from OccupyOAK):

“In San Francisco, Department of Public Works interim Director Mohammed Nuru revealed today City officials have offered OccupySF protesters an alternative location to setup camp.  Though Nuru would not reveal the exact location, we understand the location to be a lot on the west side of Mission Street between 15th and 16th streets.  A former school, the site has running water and bathrooms as well as classroom-type structures that could be used for organizational purposes. No word yet on whether OccupySF will take up the City’s offer but, we’re told, the offer has been accepted in good faith.”

However, word on the street is that it’s a trap.

Only Time Will Tell.
