Just What Frisco Needs: 13 More Year-Round Geese in Golden Gate Park – Isn’t This HUGE Brood of Goslings?Tuesday, April 26th, 2016
I’ve never seen this.
13(!) goslings for one mated pair?
Brace for an even bigger honking pile of poop in GGP…
“Pixar Canada?” – They Terk Our Jerbs! – How Hollywood-Style Tax Incentives Didn’t Work for Vancouver, British ColumbiaWednesday, November 19th, 2014
“Disney was drawn to Vancouver by tax incentives, and this closure comes in the wake of British Columbia incentives falling behind those offered by Ontario and Quebec.”
So three years of Pixar Canada were subsidized by Canadian taxpayers and then everybody’s laid off from Pixar Canada. How could anyone spin this fiasco into some kind of victory? IDK
Without subsidies, you’d expect these Pixar jobs to be in Emeryville (where Pixar is the city’s #1 employer) or Los Angeles.
Anyway, this is all news to me. Perhaps it’s news to you…
One supposes the great Apple Costco Spat of Aught-Ten is over, seeing as you can walk right in to Costco #144 and score an iPod Touch or Nano or, soon enough, an iPad Air or Mini or whatnot.
Apparently Canadian Costcos are getting iPhones now but supplies will be spotty in the U.S. depending on region and carrier.
(The last time I bought an iPod at a Costco it was co-branded with HP, believe it or not.)
Or if you really want to save money, there’s always the Apple Refurbished Store.
Bus-Porn: MUNI 9X Bayshore Spotted on the Highways of Wyoming – New 8700-Series Delivery – Transit-SpottingFriday, October 18th, 2013
New Flyer Industries keeps cranking them out and we keep buying them. See?
This brand-new MUNI #8706 is just like our 8600-series hybrid diesels, right?
Via SinGarTheGoat Reddit:
“My buddy is on tour with his band driving through Wyoming, he just sent me this pic. What the fuck is a MUNI bus doing in bum-fuck Wyoming?!?”

Somebody’s going to have to update Wiki…
My love is in league with the freeway
It’s passion will ride, as the cities fly by
And the tail-lights dissolve, in the coming of night
And the questions in thousands take flight
My love is the miles and the waiting
The eyes that just stare, and a glance at the clock
And the secret that burns, and the pain that won’t stop
And it’s fuel is the years
Leading me on
Leading me down the road
Driving me on, driving me down the road
It’s a simple question.
Now actually, the SFMTA does have electric buses.
But those vehicles don’t have “ELECTRIC POWERED” stickers.
The only MUNI vehicles with “ELECTRIC POWERED” on the side are diesels

Isn’t it ironic?
Hey! Speaking of MUNI and diesel, the term “Biodiesel” is a lie the way the SFMTA uses it.
How about that?
Hey! Speaking of MUNI and petroleum products, which has spilled more into San Francisco Bay – the famous oil-spilling Cosco Busan or MUNI?
Can you guess? It’s MUNI.
In closing, MUNI sucks.
The New Cirque du Soleil Show is Going to be Awesome – AMALUNA Starts 11-15-13 in SF, 1-22-14 in SJ – Buy Ticks NowMonday, June 10th, 2013
I’ll ask you, have you ever been to a bad Cirque du Soleil?
Now, supposedly we had a bad one blow through town a few years back down at the Cow Palace. Your local MSM Arts crew was non-enthusiastic – not all of them wanted to go review it, see? So comped tickets made it all the way down to people involved with lesser blogs, such as your truly.
And I’ll tell you, C du S in that ugly, ugly Daly City concrete blockhouse was awesome. They had like 17 bits to do and 16 of them were very impressive or better. And keep in mind that this was an older show that was put on not under the big tent.
So now we have a brand new show coming to town starting November 15th, 2013.
The time to buy tickets for it is right now. You’ll thank yourself later on.
All the deets:
