The Towman Cometh: The Great Towing of the Western Addition Starts This Saturday Night – Thanks, NIKE!Thursday, October 15th, 2015
IMO, Nike should make sure that these types of signs hit the streets like six days before the annual Nike Womens 13.1-Mile Marketing Effort
(Interesting font there, SFMTA!)
The way things stand now, notice is insufficient.
(The person who will tow your ride Sunday morning will live south of SF, and have bible verses cited on the side of his tow truck, if Past Is Prologue.)
Hey, is That Notorious “Bluewolf” Salesforce DreamForce Chalk Ad Company Making Amends with SFMTA Bus Advertising?Thursday, October 8th, 2015
I’ve never seen an ad like this afore:
How long did it take to create, one wonders? About two seconds?
No matter, I’m sure SFGov is starting to think of the bluewolf as a good corporate citizen now…
Note human, for scale:
One assumes it might have something to do with this, Contract 2419J?
Dreamforce Nightmare: Ohio-Based Advertising Firm Glee-fully Mocks SF – Boasts of “Earned Media Impressions” from Illegal GraffitiTuesday, September 15th, 2015
And here’s the write-up by Joe Garofoli: “Tech company defies San Francisco graffiti ban at Dreamforce.”
Now let’s hear from the people at CivitasNow, the company what promised to clean up the sidewalks of SoMA and the Financh yesterday afternoon:
@bsinram 14 hours ago We’re making headlines from coast to coast @CivitasNow http://blog.sfgate.com/techchron/2015/09/14/tech-company-defies-city-ban-against-putting-logo-on-sidewalks/ …,
You see that? They think this whole sitch is funny.
I think I see the problem here, I think the CivitasNow people are thinking they might get a ticket for two or three or four or five figures, but, IRL, what they might end up with is a settlement for six or seven figures if they continue to embarrass / piss off / mock area residents, such as a Mayor, or a City Attorney, or even a Benioff or two.
Hey CivitasNow, hey Bluewolf, do you think there might be a reason why some DreamForcers covered up some of your numerous chalk ads?
Perhaps you all have reached Pariah status, but you don’t even know it?
Marc Benioff’s DREAMFORCE 2015 Starts Off on the Wrong Foot: Illegal Ads from “Bluewolf” Mar Sidewalks of SoMAMonday, September 14th, 2015
[UPDATE: This webpage (“Dreamforce Swag”) was just pulled by “Bluewolf.” Here’s what it used to look like:
So that takes care of that.
So, no you didn’t have permits, right, Bluewolf people? Or if you do, then share the info – it sure would interesting to see that. Thank you, drive through. END OF UPDATES]
Via KatieOnViolin, you can’t do this:
Oh, what’s that, it’s only temporary? Well, that’s what they all say.
And there’s this:
“Citizens can obtain permits for sidewalk stencils, but there is no legal means for a company to advertise using sidewalk stencils, Gordon said. Still, many companies throughout the years have created guerrilla marketing campaigns on city sidewalks, including Zynga and IBM.”
What you bluewolfers ought to do, you know, wikiwiki, is come on downstairs, buy some brushes at a CVS, and then start scrubbing…
“#2 DAD” – Rec & Park’s Endless Effort Against Graffiti – Tags Get Painted Over, But Then Replaced Within HoursMonday, August 24th, 2015
As here, when the covering paint was still wet:
Here’s how things looked a few days ago.
You know these days, it seems I’ll see something on Twitter one week and then it will appear as graffiti the next week…
Oh, Here’s Why All These Street Lights in Golden Gate Park Have Been Burning 24-7 for Half a Year – Lazy Lazy SFGovWednesday, July 29th, 2015
The switches up there are photovoltaic? So when they get covered with grime and whatnot the lights stay lit even in the daytime – that’s your clue that you need to fix the light.
Except this is Frisco, where the way to become a department head is, more or less, through elections fraud and/or sharing sports activities (such as jogging) with a so-called Strong Mayor. Ergo, the focus is on the political, as opposed to, what, common sense?
On It Goes…
Here’s One Troubled Tree that SFGov Can’t Simply Force a Nearby Homeowner to Maintain – Corrupt TRANSFER SystemMonday, July 27th, 2015
So here’s an example – what kind of possible liability problems do you see here, Gentle Reader?
Normally, our corrupt DPW (which thinks YOU’RE the deadbeat, for not giving it ever more money money money) would “transfer” all the headaches of tree ownership onto a nearby homeowner, but in this case it can’t. Isn’t that sad?
Frisco is good at planting trees, but it’s not good at taking care of trees.
