San Francisco’s Most Famous Car of 2014: A “Mirror-Finish Aston Martin Rapide, Because Eff You, That’s Why”

Wednesday, June 11th, 2014

[UPDATE: Word on the street is that the driver lives in The Avenues, where he has a rep for driving too fast out there. Word on the street is that the driver has a "neckbeard."]

I seen this $200k+ Aston Martin Rapide all over town – I seen it I seen it! In the Financh, the SoMA, the Fillmore, pretty much all over the 1/8th of a pie slice that is northeastern SF.

(This ride has now officially stolen the thunder of that Kandy-Kolored Gold-Flake Streamline Baby Lambo used as a daily driver(!) by a CCSF junior college student.)

So, why the mirror finish, dahling? Well, per Arlen of Flickr, “because fuck you, that’s why.”

And, has this garish Aston been registered in California yet? Well, maybe, but if it has a CA license plate, it’s certainly not mounted on the back where it should be, and that’s odd, because it’s been in town for a while, oh well.

Who can solve this mystery?

As seen being driven, poorly, in the Upper Fillmore area…

The Models on the Cover of the CCSF’s Spring 2014 Schedule are Much More Attractive Than Those Hired by the NEMA Building

[UPDATE: Hey, is this an official modeling agreement from CCSF? Mmmm... "Valuable consideration means money, you know, generally, right?]

(I wonder which modeling agency CCSF used, if any.)

After CCSF Shuts Down, Should We Keep Its Police Force Out On the Streets Patrolling the City?

Friday, October 18th, 2013

Oh, here’s a better question:

Why do we even have a CCSF Police Force in the first place?

Are the CCSF Police very/

City College of San Francisco Has Its Own Police Force? Radio Cars and Everything – Flashing the Lights on Masonic

Wednesday, July 24th, 2013

Why on Earth would this officer be flashing the red and blues on Masonic?

Hey CCSF! Is this what you spend your money on?

Hey CCSF! Didn’t you just lose your accreditation?

The SFMTA Has an N Judah Express, So Where’s the T Third Express? – “MUNI’s Shameful Racism”

Wednesday, March 20th, 2013

CCSF student Gloria Dean has a question for the SFMTAMUNIDPTSFBC:

“I would like to know the reasons why the Muni constantly stops trains on the T-Line at 23rd Street as if the rest of Third Street doesn’t exist. 

“To see elderly women, men and children waiting over an hour for a train to get home is some of the worse treatment of citizens I’ve ever seen from a transportation system. I’ve traveled extensively all over the country as well as the world and I’ve only lived in this area for one year. However, this is obviously a classic combination of classism and racism being displayed, and it is truly a SHAME!

“I’ve decided to take my car out of the parking garage and drive. I refuse to be treated as a second class citizen. I deserve more and so do all the residents of Bayview. Last check, San Francisco doesn’t end at 23rd Street.”

Well I know the answer – it has to do with the district election system for the Board of Supervisors, and also the SFMTA’s general incompetence.

Now the Supervisor for our Bayview Hunters Point area asked about this sitch and the answer was that the T-Third zipped along at a speedy 9 MPH or something, so a T-Third Express wasn’t really needed.

Hey, here’s a jobs program. Why not tear out the T-Third and bring back the buses? Just asking. I mean the T-Third takes up a lot of space, right? Why doesn’t MUNI use it more?

Now speaking of the N Judah Express, here it is, in action, or lack thereof:

Is that four buses sitting around on Sansome Street during rush hour? The drivers are just starting work and it’s time for a 40 minute lunch break? All right.

And here’s another on Bush, just idling away.

Actually, even when the N Judah Express band-aid operation is operational during our rush hours, the buses are totally empty, no passengers, most of the time.

Oh well.

“Cloud-First Policy” Comes to SFGov: San Francisco’s Department of Technology Implements New IT Strategy

Tuesday, August 28th, 2012

So, basically, SFGov will soon be doing more stuff through a network instead of doing stuff on-site, for better or worse.

Check it:

We implemented a cloud-first IT strategy as part of our effort to address a multimillion-dollar, city-wide budget deficit, avoid staff reductions and implement business-enabling IT solutions. Our cloud-first strategy has allowed us to roll out a wide-ranging series of transformative virtualization and cloud initiatives with CommVault Simpana software as the foundation of our data management strategy,” said Gina Tomlinson, Chief Technology Officer for the City and County of San Francisco. “These successful initiatives have helped us expand our footprint in the cloud and anticipate future demands to ensure our cloud services fulfill and grow with the needs of our agencies and community.”

Here‘s the PowerPoint.

OK, then. We’ll soon have Cloud Computing First to go with our existing Transit First policy. What other Firsts will we soon have?

Anyway, all your local government data, your parking ticket payment history records and the like, are heading up to the sky. Let’s hope they stay safe up there.

It’ll look something like this:

The company that got the contract to do this has a lot of blah blah blah about it.

See it after the jump

Did a Community College Student Buy Dennis Rodman’s Gold Lamborghini to Drive to CCSF Every Day? Here It Is

Wednesday, August 22nd, 2012

Why would you paint the top half of your Lambo in flaked gold to make it look like a bowling ball?

This vehicle, spotted in San Francisco’s Chinatown last week, is an abomination:

Click to expand

So Dennis Rodman bought this 2004 Lamboghini Gallardo automatic and then he spent $15,000 to paint the top half in gold flake after an accident and then he sold it last year for $80-something in order to make child support payments?

And then a City College of San Francisco student obtained it as a daily driver to get him to the Main Campus reservoir parking lot each and every day for both the Spring and Fall semesters of 2012?

Really?

OMG. (Please note the tell-tale green CCSF parking sticker in the windshield.)

Let’s hear from a Toyota-driving CCSF student earlier this week:

“saw this lambo today at the school parking lot (ccsf). in fact, it parked 3 cars away from me. easily the most expensive car at ccsf…”

This car is all over town these days, C-Town, J-Town, Upper Haight, Lower Haight, all over.

And just think, when the owner gets around to registering this car (use tax, baby – $7k), that’ll pay for the education subsidy he’s getting by being a stu at troubled CCSF.

Hurray!

Here’s CA plate 6SUG286 during happier times with DR, back in aught-five, back before he accumulated a million bucks worth in unpaid child and spousal support.

Anyway, mail in your photos, gentle readers, when you see this ride about town.

In closing, go CCSF Rams!
