As part of its punishment, it was barred from selling CA lottery tickets.
Well, looks like it’s back in the LOTTO biz now. See?
IDK, I don’t think California should even have a lottery.
[UPDATE: Oh, this flick is called PUSHING DEAD, with Danny Glover.]
Hey look, it’s a fake “EVERGOLD” CREDIT UNION ATM – the gold paint’s still wet. As seen tonight at Hayes and Ashbury:
All the deets – these particular Hollywood-types hail from Newport Beach, as many of them do.
Grab some popcorn and then head on over to watch “P. Dead,” whatever that is. Anywho, this show will end by 2:00 AM Monday morning.
Stay gold, Frisco.
Play us out, Beck.
They sent five trucks, looks like:
Here is your lodestar – it’s Nux:
For starters, you’re going to need some Wilton Silver Color Mist for just $6.62.
And then, as noted by Neil Cromby, simply click on the FREQUENTLY BOUGHT TOGETHER link to find…
Get your friend to come as your bloodbag, and you’ve got yourself a memorable holiday.
Buy now, as prices will surely skyrocket just afore All Hallows Eve. Oh what a day it will be – what a lovely day!
May you party eternal, shiny and chrome…
The Gist is that quite attractive hackr gurl Sandra Bullock is such is such a social loser that nobody in the world knows who she is, except for her mom with Alzheimer’s and former beau Dennis Leary(!)
But let’s take a stroll down Memory Lane:
“Bennett finally tracks down the net conspiracy to San Francisco, where the HQ of the ‘Cathedral’ corporation is 1 Post Street at Market Street. The climactic ‘Pan-Pacific Computer Convention’ used a real Apple convention at the Moscone Center, Howard Street between Third and Fourth Streets in San Francisco.”
And now, some screen shots.
So single female loser drives a big BMW sedan? I don’t think so, Hollywood, but thanks for heavily featuring the BMW “roundel” propeller logo in every scene that you possibly could. (Was is it her dead boyfriend’s ride? IDK.) And let’s all laugh at the huge “car phones” of the day, but they actually worked better as phones than our “devices” of 2015. And oh yeah, the fuzz is on her back door in this very scene – these days you can get a moving violation ticket for this “primary offense” and KRON TV’s Stanley Roberts would be videoing her for a segment of People Behaving Badly:
Hey, it’s DR!
Hey, it’s EC!
(Those are news readers I recognize, ’cause I’m old. IDK who reads the news these days.)
Oh look, McKesson Plaza! AKA One Post Street. Sadly, the gold letters were covered up by the Hollywood Freaks. Note the crimson red banners for an upcoming AIDS vigil. I’ll tell you, real candlelight vigils can be arresting, a river of light coming at you and stretching out for a half-mile. The one in this movie looked like just another parade.
And here’s your MacWorld 1995:
And there you have it.
This looks dreadful:
Be sure to tell Chris what you think about his new joint if you see him about town…
Did I say “hater?” Nah, that’s not the case, as Inside Out is a fine film. But as far as far as portraying a realistic San Francisco, it’s no Big Hero Six.
Let’s get the Lloyd Bentsen-style sanctimony out of the way – let me school this new movie:
Inside Out, I served with Big Hero Six.
I knew Big Hero Six.
Big Hero Six was a friend of mine.
Inside Out, you are no Big Hero Six.
Now we’ll deal with IO’s moving-to-Frisco scenes.
1. Golden Gate Bridge seen from Marin County – This view is all kinds of messed up, IIRC, and I do.
2. Looking up at GGB from its roadbed – Perfect, almost photorealistic.
3. Foot of Market Street near the Ferry Building. – Perfectly fine.
4. 1000 block of Lombard Street – Cars are too small – it’s never that crowded, actually.
5. Red cable car #25 on Hyde Street? – A generic view, but pretty good.
6. 21 Royal Street, San Francisco, CA 94109 – Well, if you’re on the unit (000) block of an alley that goes up a hill and across a regular street to continue on to the 100 block of the very same alley, well, I think we’re out of luck.
Here’s the alley. The telephone pole and blue Recology garbage / recycling can are true-to-life:
Now here’s the real-life 21 Allen – it’s as close as I can find.
(Let’s not get into driving and parking – the driver does about average, considering he just blew into town.)
So that’s it – Inside Out shows SF well, but it’s not up to the level of other efforts.
(And oh, speaker of haters, they unloaded gallons of Hater-Ade upon poor, poor Cars 2:
“The (mostly false) narrative after that was that Pixar got sequel happy and the quality dipped. Cars 2 was as much a passion project for John Lasseter as a merchandising cash cow, and the film did earn $559m worldwide despite lousy reviews and a low (for Pixar) $191m domestic total.”
Cars 2 is awesome, compared with what people say about poor poor Cars 2. Oh well.)
First up, some signage to learn the locals that our Dear Leader is fully on board with the production of this heist movie, so step off, hippies:
And is this a rolling coal diesel exhaust coming out of this van parked on Stanyan, the better to power a phalanx of electronic gear?
Sure looks that way.
I’ve never seen a smokestack on the top of a van before…
