SF Arts Commission vs. KKKatie et. al. – McKinley Statue in GGP Panhandle Shrouded for Seismic Upgrade, Conservation

Friday, June 30th, 2017

I hadn’t seen this new construction.

Let’s start with this:

That was from a while back, from KKKatey, who ended up getting arrested by the SFPD.

And this was about as bad as things got:

Fell free to go back back back into history – keep on scrolling for the photos.

Anyway, RPD  / SFAC / SFPD didn’t have a handle on graffiti a decade or two back, but you see a lot less of it now.

Here’s the fantasy, held by some in power, of how SFGov should handle ‘tings:

See, it’s a hippie fence!

IDK, man.

So now have the current effort. I guess things started here, back in ’13.

And this is how things look now, in the summer of ’17:

Scaffolding and everything:

How the SFPD Gets Its Man – A Brief Foot Chase in the 94117 – Red and Blue Lights Race Through the Panhandle

Friday, June 9th, 2017

And when I say through the Panhandle, I mean through the Panhandle, as Fell is a one way the wrong way. So let’s use the multi-use trail to get to Central from Masonic:

Looks like it worked:

Tree Mail: Major Cell Phone Service Providers Use a Giant Eucalyptus as a Temporary Utility Pole – Entmoot Expected

Thursday, May 18th, 2017

7J7C2154 copy

So our downsized and somewhat defunned Bay to Breakers 2017 is a coming this weekend so that means that Frisco’s annual street party will tax the bandwidth of Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint, so some of those suspects must be responsible for this temporary installation, which will allow all the partiers to get emails and texts and, IDK broadcast live or whatever the kids are into these days.

I’ve never seen this kind of tree-as-utility-pole setup, in all my years.

I’ll tell you, Certain People about town will NOT like seeing this.

I’ll get you started:

Ey yo the government is lies, son
United States of Google, Verizon

Laughably Timid UBER Self-Driving Volvo REFUSES to Make a Right on Red, Despite Lack of Peds, Cross-Traffic

Wednesday, May 17th, 2017

Here’s the thing about Fell Street – you gotta wait a looong time to cross it during rush hour, cause signal timing changes based upon what day of the week it is. I’m srsly.

So if you get a red light, it’s your obligation to look about and then decide whether to turn right on red.

And that brings us to this sad scene, with the UBER Volvo just parked at a red, patiently waiting, for a loooooong time. Check it:

Now I’m not saying that this Volvo should just stop for an instant and then take off willy-nilly. No no. You gotta creep a bit, you know, see how things look. And then you creep a bit more. And then look, it’s clear, and now you’re on the trolley. And, due to the timed lights setup, you’ve guaranteed yourself a green at the next light, and so on, and so on.

But obstinately waiting, IDK, seems selfish, non?

And you never know who might be behind you.

Why not be more like these robots, Evil UBER Volvo Robot?

Oregonians Make Themselves a Temporary Home on Busy Busy Fell Street

Wednesday, May 3rd, 2017

You’re not supposed to park large vehicles such as this at night at this location anymore, but I think enforcement is “complaint-driven,” at this point and I’m not going to complain.

Heckflosse! – This is What the 1950’s (or 1960’s) Looked Like – Woman Drives Past DMV in Mercedes 220S Fintail

Tuesday, April 11th, 2017

I’m thinking both the DMV and this W-111 fintail MB both are from the early 1960’s…

7J7C0180 copy

…but they might have been birthed at the the end of the 1950’s, IDK.

Anyway, as seen in 2017, and our 3-star rated DMV is still going strong, despite all those plans for hated Redevelopment. In fact, both this ride and this building outlast the Redevelopment Commish itself, go figure. (And ask me and I’ll tell you how to pass the behind-the-wheel test, as I’ve told so many others, at Frisco’s solitary DMV. (Oh, your friend told you Daly City DMV has an easier test? Well, your friend is a LIAR!) There’s no trick to it, but there’s One Simple Trick.)

A Closer Look at the Brand-New “Safe Hit Posts” on Fell, Installed Either by the SFMTA or the SFMTrA, Still Can’t Tell

Wednesday, March 8th, 2017

Thought I’d find out about these freshly-installed plasticky street posts with a quickness, but I haven’t.

Here’s a closer look:

7J7C8223 copy

You’d think the SFMTA would be crowing about something like this, if they done it:

7J7C8224 copy

I’ll agree that these posts sure do “look official.”

And here’s a glance at some now-official posts on the other side of Stanyan:

7J7C8226 copy

They’re not aging well, oh well (but that was to be expected).

I’l need to hear from an official SFMTA spokesmodel afore I know for sure that these are official…
