Black Cars in Specific Whites: The Rich People of Pac Heights Don’t Like Colors – Ten in a Row on Broadway

Tuesday, April 12th, 2016

I’ll tell you, back in the day, in Japan, looking out the airport bus window, I was surprised to see a Nissan Fairlady Z police car but also I was surprised to see that most cars on the road there were plain-Jane white sedans, and it was like, “Oh yeah, most cars are white here in Japan.”

Oh. News to me.

But check the scene here, in Frisco – ten vehicles in a row on the street what are painted black. (Now, there’s a covered-up motorcycle in this parade, but you just gotta know that it’s painted all black as well. C’mon, this is Frisco, where people in groups on the street wear black from head to toe, or almost do so.) Anyway, Y SO SRS, 94115?

I mean, Tokyo has moved on, so why can’t you?

I wear Black on the outside
Cause Black is how I feel on the inside
I wear Black on the outside
Cause Black is how I feel on the inside

And if I seem a little strange
Well, that’s because I am
If I seem a little strange
That’s because I am

But I know that you would like me
If only you could see me
If only you could meet me

Oh
I don’t have much in my life
But take it – it’s yours
I don’t have much in my life
But take it – it’s yours

The First Block of Masonic is Far Too Hilly Curvy Speedy for Pedestrians to Jaywalk Upon – And Yet – Shopping at Trader Joe’s #100

Tuesday, April 5th, 2016

Due to the parking situation at this Trader Joe’s, people jaywalk here all the time. Sometimes they die.

Speaking of which, if small parking lots are so great, why not get rid of parking altogether at all the TJ’ses?

One wonders.

This place is a magnet – it attracts all kinds of people.

It wouldn’t seem to be a good place to escape from, after breaking into cars for valuables, but turns out that it is…

Question of the Day: How Likely Is It That This Truck Parked on Geary in a Red Zone Will Get a Parking Ticket?

Wednesday, March 9th, 2016

It might be a dead-bang sure thing that the owner of the pickup parked on the left would get recorded by the camera in the #38 bus on the right, but IDK:

I’d never park there with a MUNI bus in range, that’s for sure…

Just asking.

(Also, why are young well-to-do bachelors moving to the somnolent Outer Richmond? IDK, but they’re here now, that’s for sure.)

Maserati used to be rare. Not no more.

How Sad Is It When You Queue Up for the Trader Joe’s Parking Lot Without Even Being Able to See It?

Did SFGov plan for this kind of thing to happen?

This set-up on Masonic sometimes affects traffic on Bush. I’ve never seen it back up to Euclid for very long though – seems that’s the natural endpoint, where people just give up on the idea of parking at TJ’s that day..
