MUNI’s Answer to the CHESTNUT BULLET from CHARIOT: New Flyer Industries XT60 60-Foot Articulated Trolleybuses – Your New 30X-Marina ExpressWednesday, December 23rd, 2015
It’s like the Mammoth Car from Speed Racer, non?
Anyway, that one above, #7201, was just the prototype. But this one here, #7215 is the real deal, spotted last week undergoing sea trials on Mission in SoMA. Soon it will be your new 30-X Marina “(Orient) Express,” the better to do battle with Chariot’s Chestnut Bullet:
Get all the deets from Joe Fitzgerald Rodriguez
(And let me say, speaking a Bro myself, I apologize to Joe on behalf of Bros everywhere for all the time he had to spend yesterday on the SFBARF crew. Imagine if renters banded together to get property owners to speak out for rent control or something – that would be pretty bizarre as well.)
But hey, look at this monster – it doesn’t even come close to fitting into the frame:
Articulated, as most monsters are:
Bye bye Monster Bus – see you in my nightmares:
Actually, I approve of these gentle giants, these whale sharks of the transit world. Now it’s a shame that literally nothing can be done about rejiggering lanes to get 30’s through Stockton Street, but there was/is a corrupt bargain having to do with the less-than-useless Central Subway what prevents that. Oh well.
Alamo Drafthouse Reopens the New Mission Theatre Tomorrow – Pay $5 for Home Alone – And Next Week, Star Wars 7 for $9.25Friday, December 11th, 2015
You young kids don’t know what inflation is, but I do. And if someone had told me back when I was laboring at some flea-bitten Landmark Theatres, where precious It’s It’s cost $2 and frozen Toblerone bars were $3 and tickets were $6, I think, that you’d be able to see a first-run film for just $9.25 in the heart of Frisco on business-class seating in the Year of our Lord 2015, well I wouldn’t have believed it.
It’s here, opening early, on 12-12-15
See you there!
The answer is that you live in the Inner Sunset. Sorry.
But if you want to say that you live in Windsor Terrace development or subdivision of the Inner Sunset, that’d be fine.
The Bourgeois Bohemians of the 94118 and Marin County – It’s a Kind of Paradise, For Some – Hello, I’m BOBO!”Monday, November 2nd, 2015
Wow, it doesn’t get much more bobo than this.
This is quite an old license plate – lots of foresight here…
19th Avenue is the New Alternative to Poorly Designed and Administered Sunset Boulevard, Believe It Or NotWednesday, October 21st, 2015
Here it is, 19th Avenue in the Sunset / Parkside, with traffic going about 38-40 MPH through green light after green light in sections marked for 30 MPH:
Historically, Sunset has been the alternative to congested 19th, but things have changed lately. Of course, Sunset was a bad idea, a big wide boulevard with pointless medians up the yingyang. The question now is what to do about it.
Let’s Knife: Standing in a Parking Space on Geary to “Reserve It” for Friends Driving Around Blocks Away is UnhealthyFriday, October 9th, 2015
Why? Because somebody just might cut you, you know, in a knife fight that you just might get involved with in the 94118, despite the fact (or, especially because?) you yourself don’t ever carry a knife:
Or, in other words, you can’t really save a parking spot by standing in it because it’s agin the law.
All right, enough controversy, Let’s Knife!
