Tuesday, September 1st, 2015

Here’s the latest on this one:

Critical Mass window smasher was wearing T-shirt advocating non-violence by Evan Sernoffsky

Oh, I read it as The Union is Our Strength. And I thought, oh, I guess that makes sense.

But the real quote is much better.

Anyway, here’s the front of the shirt – it depicts the UFW eagle morphing into a white winged dove* with a sprig of laurel:

Anyway, this is some excellent blogging from Evan Sernoffsky…

*Well, only a regular dove, but it’s just like the white-winged dove.

Somehow, it still makes sense to get our cars from high-cost Japan.

Cars roll on this ugly Chronus Leader ship in Japan and roll off in the east bay or the north bay.

Barely Legal: Turning Left Across Double Yellow Lines on Busy Masonic to Park Your Car – DUDE, IS THIS A GOOD IDEA?

Friday, August 14th, 2015

Oh Lord:

P1300529 copy

Not only did this maneuver block the fast lane of northbound Masonic for a while, it also resulted in squealing brakes / tires from inattentive drivers headed south.

IF you timed this right, during certain parts of the day or night, then this might be OK.

But the correct way to park in the garage of one the Great Estates of this part of Masonic is to GO AROUND THE FUCKING LUCKY to end up heading south on Masonic from the terminus of this part of McAllister.

END OF LINE.

I cannot and will not recant anything, for to go against conscience is neither right nor safe. Here I stand, I can do no other, so help me God. Amen.

Garish, $140K, BMW i8 SAFETYCAR Towed by DPT, for Safety, One Supposes – The Limits of Supercar Ownership

Wednesday, August 12th, 2015

You’d think a SAFETYCAR such as this one would spend its time on a racetrack up north, but no, it mingles with regular cars on the streets of San Francisco, like this:

Now here’s the update, from Jake Saltzman:

IDK, did SAFETYCAR block traffic in a yellow zone during towaway rush hour and then did DPT have it towed as a hazard to navigation? Well, something like that.

(Someday, _I’ll_ own and operate a SAFETYCAR!)

All these items espied near Fulton tell quite a story.

A sad story.

The junkie who breaks into your car at night doesn’t really want most of your stuff. The junkie can’t use most of it, so it gets tossed. Value = 0. So why does the junkie take it? This sitch isn’t good for you and it’s not good for the junkie.

Oh well.

“OOOOH, Barracuda” – A Classic Plymouth with HEART- Mopar Madness in Golden Gate Park

Monday, July 27th, 2015

Sing along: Barracuda.

I think this is it – this is the best license plate / car combo I’ve ever seen:

Know your Plymouth ‘Cudas.

Ooooh, street cred, sort of:

“In 2009, it was named the 34th best hard rock song of all time by VH1.”

Catalyst

“Ann Wilson revealed in interviews that the song was about Heart’s anger towards Mushroom Records’ attempted publicity stunt involving her and her sister Nancy Wilson in a made-up incestuous affair. The song particularly focuses on Ann’s rage towards a man who came up to her after a concert asking how her “lover” was. She initially thought he was talking about her boyfriend, band manager Michael Fisher. After he revealed he was talking about her sister Nancy, Ann became angry and went back to her hotel room to write the original lyrics of the song.”

And if the real thing don’t do the trick
You better make up something quick
You gonna burn, burn, burn, burn, burn to the wick
Ooooh, barracuda
Oh, yeah
