Hollywood-Types Invade the Western Addition for a Nighttime Shoot – A Fake ATM Installed on Hayes, Next to the Style-O-Rama Shop

Sunday, September 13th, 2015

[UPDATE: Oh, this flick is called PUSHING DEAD, with Danny Glover.]

Hey look, it’s a fake “EVERGOLD” CREDIT UNION ATM – the gold paint’s still wet. As seen tonight at Hayes and Ashbury:

All the deets – these particular Hollywood-types hail from Newport Beach, as many of them do.

Grab some popcorn and then head on over to watch “P. Dead,” whatever that is. Anywho, this show will end by 2:00 AM Monday morning.

Stay gold, Frisco.

Play us out, Beck.

They sent five trucks, looks like:

Ouch, this one hurts.

This Four-Decker Cell Phone Antenna is Beautiful – These Should Be Erected All Over Frisco, Starting with Telegraph Hill

Thursday, June 25th, 2015

You dig? Cause cell phones are modern-day telegraphs / semaphores right?

And then, when semaphores are no longer useful, we took them down.

And then, when cell phone towers are no longer useful, we’ll take them down.


Flickr’s Photo of the Decade, IMO: Owl Purse + Horse Shoes + MUNI Bus Stop

Friday, May 15th, 2015

We’re only halfway through the 2010’s, or whatever you want to call the decade of 2010-2019, but it’s clear that Will Wilson‘s shot from aught-11 will not be surpassed:

Surprised it didn’t go viral…

In closing, PUT A BIRD ON IT!

It Takes a Village to Assemble a Cell Phone Tower in Golden Gate Park – All That Fuss Over This

Tuesday, May 12th, 2015

This is in the Panhandle, which I consider part of Golden Gate Park, the same way I consider a pan’s handle to be a part of the pan and the same way I consider the Oklahoma Panhandle to be a part of Oklahoma:

This is between Fell and Oak near Clayton, as opposed to the Verizon / AT&T unit near Ashbury what started going up a whopping 13 days afore the 2015 Bay to Breakers historic fun run and street party. Camden Avery of Hoodline has the deets on that temporary tower.

Here’s the Clayton install as seen on Monday – man, that’s a big crew:

In years past these mobile towers have been sited on the other side of Stanyan, but the traditional party location is closer to Masonic – this year the towers will be closer to the action.

We’ll have to wait and see how all this extra non-ionizing radiation flying about is affecting my mojo


Pray for my mojo

Word From Rec and Park in the Golden Gate Park Panhandle: “Radio Frequency Energy May Exceed Exposure Limits”

Wednesday, May 6th, 2015

[UPDATE: Peeps be telling me this could be preparations for the upcoming Bay to Breakers historic street party and fun run, but starting 13 days ahead of time seems funny to me…]

I’ll tell you, they’ve been working on installing this generator-powered mobile cell phone tower(?) in the Golden Gate Park Panhandle near Fell and Masonic since Monday, so obvs the Recreation and Park Department knows what’s going on here:

But what’s behind the cyclone fencing? It’s a NOTICE what says:

“STAY BACK! Radio-frequency energy May exceed exposure limits”

Here’s what it looks like:

So if you feel like you’ve been missing your mojo lately, this rig could be the reason why…

I see people like this all the time.

Poor devils:

Myself, I got a couple of these (if necessary, though usually they are not) (and while we’re at it, one of these, too) for my years-old mobile, so you won’t catch me trying to look under your bus seat for an outlet or, as here, siphoning juice, the precious juice, from outside the Lucky Super.

What Does It Mean When a Ferrari Driver Goes 50 MPH on the Freeway? It Means He’s Holding a Cell Phone Up To His Face

Tuesday, August 26th, 2014

This driver wasn’t looking down at his cell phone (or iPod Touch or small tablet or phablet – I couldn’t really tell) while driving 15-20 MPH slower than surrounding traffic, oh no. Brocephus here was holding his mobile up high above the steering wheel.

I’ve never seen this before. Anyway, it’s your classic distracted driving and the proof of that is how slowly he was going.

(And a license plate? Oh no, no thanks, not for me, not for my Ferrari. License plates are for the little people driving around in their Honda Civics…)

Attention Ferraristi: You all think that you’re “good drivers” but in fact, as a group, you’re not. You’re all now on secret double probation – straighten up and fly right.
