The Battle Against the Term FRISCO has Been Lost, Officially – But Continue to Rage Against SAN FRAN, If You WantMonday, January 30th, 2017
Get the update here from Joe Fitz Rodriguez of the San Francisco Examiner.
And that leads us to this: Official FRISCO Day is May 5th this year.
Your ‘rents called it Frisco (see below) and your kids are openly doing so as well. What I’m saying is that Charlie is inside the perimeter, the battle is lost. And of course your lodestar Herb Caen realized this decades ago, sry.
(Now “San Fran” is different – that term is used by out-of-towners exclusively, you know, non pejoratively, they don’t mean anything by it. Feel free to snootily correct them, but you don’t have to. What if Angelenos took offense to the sometimes pejorative LA LA LAND? We’d have a snubbing from Oscar instead of 14 nominations.)
Ah, memories, via our Palace of Fine Arts:
American Beauty-Style “Dancing Bag” Appears at 3rd and Market – It was Roundly Ignored by Passersby, Oh WellFriday, January 6th, 2017
Somebody(ies) was horsing around with a plastic bag yesterday, but nobody noticed AFAICS.
You know, like in American Beauty
First it was all like this:
And then it was all like this:
Next time I see this, I’ll have video for you, Gentle Reader.
Sadly it was NOT the most beautiful thing I’ve ever filmed…
And then you head to the website and it’s all, “As a LoveSac Member…”
As seen on Market somewhere:
And I’m like, “Heh, you said ‘member.'”
Oh, as seen on TV.
Bonus: Happy Fun Slander* via Yelp:
This store and brand is a huuuuge waste of money. The mark-up is ridiculous. It may cost them 50-75 TOPS to make these BEAN BAGS that are made with “Memory Foam” but they sell them for upwards to a thousand bucks. Not to mention the Manager is extremely obnoxious and the associates are purranas. They tell you the couches have a lifetime warranty when in fact each little piece to the couch has about a 2 year warranty and the only thing that’s lifetime is the wood frame… Umm.. that’ll do me a lot of good. Save your money and time and go somewhere else.
*Potentially, you never know. And unless you’re super sure about all the deets, you should always say defamation, as that’s the umbrella term for libel and slander, mas or menos.
As Always, “SF VS. TRUMP” – General Douglas MacArthur Tunnel, The Presidio – Or Rather, “SF Hearts Trump?”Monday, November 28th, 2016
As seen last week heading toward the Golden Gate Bridge:
But apparently this was changed to “SF Hearts Trump” the past couple of days?
