Frisco Goes Full Florida – What are All These Miami People Doing in Town All of a Sudden? Photographic Proof!

Friday, April 3rd, 2015

I says to myself, I says, what is this, did all of Miami Beach come to the Western Addition?

And then I see the Florida plates:

Oh, that explains that.  And then I notice the bluest Camaro I’ve ever seen.

Speaking of which, more Florida plates, this time in the 94102:

(Florida plates, heh.)

And what’s this, a brand-new LEAP bus?

Cf. this brand-new eBay bus. “Surf blue?” How about Bay Window Beige instead?

I cry foul:

Your monochromatic blues, your gold-wrapped Lambos, they all belong in the Sunshine State, non?

And the latest insult, on Van Ness?

Shouldn’t the neon pink MIAMI AD SCHOOL be in Miami and not SF?

We’re not ready for all this. Take your pinks and blues and head on home, Florida!

The Goldest Lamborghini in Town – Bienvenidos a Miami! – Let’s Talk License Plate Violations

Tuesday, August 5th, 2014

Florida plates, BTW.

Or should I say, Florida plate, as this gold exoticar doesn’t have a front license plate, which is a no-no in The Golden State.

And of course, you’ve got less than three weeks after moving to California to deal with the California DMV, but I’ll tell you, most Lambos you see in SF aren’t properly registered with CA DMV.

Anyway, this car reminded of Dennis Rodman’s old ride, one that’s being used as a daily driver by a CCSF student.

Stay gold, Lambo owner. Bienvenidos a 415 / 628 / 650!

Corporate Bus Registered, Sort of, in Florida Plying the Streets of San Francisco

IDK, maybe this bus is new in town, or just passing through, but it didn’t look that way…

OMG, 49ers Quarterback COLIN KAEPERNICK to Appear at Our Local Costco #144 on Wed, May 14th!

(Well, here’s the latest on the situation over in Florida that the MusclePharm people were so worried about.)

Now it’s on with the show, the road show, see?

And let’s see what the Yelpers have to say about this particular Costco sto:

“I love Costco! Here’s why..

1.) Best return policy- no questions asked!

2.) Lowest price without compromising the quality.

3.) Health score of 100/100! Beat that!

4.) Best hotdog you can get for only $1.50! That’s including soda.

5.) Costco’s travel deals are the best! Nobody can beat it. 

6.) Caucasian guy at the cashier who always wears Hawaiian shirt and speaks like 10 different languages. 

7.) Convenient – location, parking etc”

And oh, if I can read the fine print, you can too, but anyway, just saying this whole deal is members only. So if you’re not among the first 300 Costco members in line, you won’t be getting anywhere near CK. (One assumes the MP people* want you to queue up for hours and hours, you know, to create a frisson non?) Fair warning.

*6’1″ and 230 pounds – why do those stats seem familiar? Put me in, coach!

Ashton Kutcher and Jay-Z want to Disrupt Civil Aviation by Backing “BlackJet” – It’s “Uber for Private Jets!”

Friday, July 12th, 2013

Here’s the news:

“A new chapter in the private jet market has opened in LA. BlackJet now allows its members to step into the lap of luxury at the cost of a business class seat on a commercial airline. The company is backed by tech moguls and Hollywood A-Listers Ashton Kutcher and Jay-Z. Each recognized that BlackJet’s technology will allow the top 15% of earners to step into a private jet as opposed to the top 1%. Instead of waiting in security lines and sitting in terminals, members are greeted by a red carpet, park next to their jet, and fall into an oversized captain’s chair.”

Check it:

Again, check it:

“Blackjet customers must be members of the service and pay an annual membership fee, currently set at $2500. The company said its target market is  business executives making more than $200,000 per year who already fly on private jets and would like to spend less money, as well as people who currently fly on commercial airlines but are looking for more of a premium service.”

The Presidio’s Walt Disney Family Museum Celebrates the 55th Anniversary of Disneyland

Wednesday, July 28th, 2010

Our Walt Disney Family Museum just celebrated the 55th Anniversary of the opening of Disneyland, from way back in July 1955. To mark the occasion they held a three-day star-studded extravaganza up in the Presidio.  

Yes, the Disney Family Museum is in the northern part of San Francisco. Check it: FaceBook / YouTube / Twitter / WDFM Blog

Anyway, the place was awash with rabid Disney fans, with some of them talking about their memories of Opening Day despite the fact that they didn’t look older than 55.

So, just what you’d expect, an extensive recap from a fan, here it is at Jim Hill Media.

And here’s a list of the speakers:

Diane Disney Miller - daughter of Walt Disney
Tony Baxter – current SR VP of Creative Development for Disneyland
Jack Lindquist – former President of Disneyland
Dick Nunis – Disney Legend and former Chairman of Walt Disney Attractions
Matt Ouimet – former President of Disneyland Resort
Buzz Price – Economist who helped Walt Disney find original site of Disneyland
Craig Russell- Current Chief Design and Project Delivery Executive, Walt Disney Imagineering
Marty Sklar- Disney Legend and former Vice Chair of Imagineering
Bruce Vaughn- Current Chief Creative Executive, Walt Disney Imagineering

This was the first day, down in the multi-hued movie theatre that you can rent out parties, I think. This was the Founding Members Only discussion with Walt’s daughter Diane Disney Miller,  Disney Legend Buzz Price, and Disney historians and authors Katherine and Richard Greene as they discuss Walt’s idea, concept, and how Disneyland became a reality:

Former Disneyland executives Jack Lindquist and Matt Ouimet were joined by Senior Vice-President of Creative Development for Disneyland Tony Baxter as they discussed the development of Disneyland, its impact on America, and Walt’s legacy with former Vice Chair of Imagineering Marty Sklar:

Disney Legends Dick Nunis and Marty Sklar, along with Craig Russell and Bruce Vaughn , currently executives with Walt Disney Imagineering, explored how Walt Disney’s new concept in family entertainment was a catalyst for parks around the world:

How will they top this in 2015 during the Diamond Jubilee of Disneyland?

Bon Courage, WDFM!
