Do You Live South of Market? This is Your Chance to Own the LiveSOMA Blog! A 3.5 Year Run

Thursday, December 6th, 2012

Here’s the news from LiveSOMA:

“With the birth of my first son, a ridiculously overwhelming list of work-related projects, and the fact that I was recently priced out of the South of Market Neighborhood and forced to move to a part of the City where homeless people aren’t constantly pooping on my doorstep (GASP!), I have decided not to continue.

With that said, if anyone out there would like to dust off LiveSOMA, I will gladly help you take it over. I would really hate to see the site- and its years of development- go to waste. Just shoot me an email. If not, I will be pulling the plug after the new year.”

I don’t know, maybe you could rev your engine to gently push the cars out of your way, but that would seem to be a risky course.

I guess the driver might have to just be patient and then come back to see when escape becomes a possibility…

Monday, July 11th, 2011

Or, maybe NetFlix isn’t evil.

No matter, highly-rated Film Yard Video will be gone by the end of the Summer of 2011 – the Tenderloin Geographic Society has the deets.

Uh, $9 for a DVD? Isn’t that a lot?

On It Goes…

Why Is It That The Only Set of Gas Pumps in the Financh are INSIDE a McDonalds on Market Street?

Thursday, January 13th, 2011

It’s a mystery.

Mind you, this is inside the store at 575 Market Street. The cash registers are just to the left.

And the woman camera right is noshing on a McDouble or something:

And there’s another McDonalds a stone’s throw away up the street at 609 Market? That’s just 34 away from 575 Market. Kind of close, huh?

It’s another mystery…

[All right, Commenter One sort of has the answer, and it's one that I already sort of knew (although I didn't make a connection with the addresses) but it doesn't tell the whole story. Somebody out there on this Great Blue Marble thought it was a capital idea to do honor a gas station inside a Micky D's, but I don't who, don't know when...]
