Remember when Willie Brown turned Market Street into, I’m srsly, the “Champs-Élysées of the Western Hemisphere?”

I do. Good times.

Or maybe it was a late-night come-to-Jesus church rescue?

I’m thinking it’s got to be one or the other.

Twitterloin Trilogy: Unlike Twitter, Mid-Market’s International Art Museum of America Doesn’t Ask for Public Handouts

Friday, April 15th, 2011

So that’s good. And you won’t be seeing headlines like, ”San Francisco proposes tax cut for Twitter” applied to this hulking white building.

It’s still attracting the curious on a daily basis down in the Mid-Market part of the Twitterloin. As seen yesterday across the street from the Chor Boogie:

Upstairs…

…and Downstairs

That’s all I have so far – two authorized photos of the inside.

Artist Chor Boogie Stabbed Twice on Market Street Over This Spray Paint Collection

Tuesday, November 10th, 2009

Read all about the stabbings that sent graffiti artist Chor Boogie (aka Jason Hailey of Glen Park) from Mid-Market to the emergency room last Saturday night in this bit from Mike Aldax. And video here from Lilian Kim.

This was the scene Saturday night, when I was trying to figure out how much the Feds were kicking in (if any) to this little project. (You know, these days, The Feds Must Be Crazy*, I don’t know, something must have gotten into them - Bridge to Nowhere, Mana From Heaven “Also Benefits Newsom“, the Chinatown Subway (aka Big Dig West - will our costs overrun by 1000% also?) - Uncle Sucker just might run out of our money one of these days. Oh well.) 

Mr. Boogie’s amazing Technicolor palette, as seen that evening, a scant half-hour before things got stabby:

But he’s back on his feet, back at it. Good for him:

“YES IT IS SO ..I GOT STABBED TWICE LAST NIGHT BY SOME GRAFITTI VIGILANTES / SPRAY PAINT THIEVES WHILE IM WORKING ON MY 100FT OR SO LONG MURAL ON BEAUTIFUL MARKET ST.. THIS DOESNT STOP THE SHOW..

THIS COULD OF HAPPENED ANYWHERETO ANYONE AND MARKET STREET IS STILL AMAZING AND LOOK FORWARD TO HELPING BEAUTIFY THE COMMUNITY…..CRISIS PRECIPATATES CHANGE..AND CHANGE IT SHALL…THE SHINING..”

Get that, man, “the shining.”

Keep on keeping on, Chor Boogie!
