Garage Art on Oak Near Divisadero: The Gluten-Free Hipster Love Story is Gone, Marred by Graffiti – Here’s the Replacement

Wednesday, April 2nd, 2014

First it was all like this, a Hipster Love Story on Oak near Divis:

Divisadero Corridor, “keepin’ Divis real.”

That was last year. More recently, somebody put”FUCK YOU” atop that piece using gold spray paint.

(That’s the sort of thing that will get the landowner a fix-it note from SFGov.)

Anywho, it’s all gone now, baby.

Here’s the replacement:

You know Twitter, it’s not too late to pay your taxes under the rules signed into law by Mayor Gavin Newsom in 2004. You know, just put it into SFGov’s General Fund where it belonged in the first place. How much are we talking about here, a $100,000,000 or so? I mean, you left a lot more than that on the table during your recent IPO, right? And then you could amend your federal returns and then you wouldn’t get so much static from the locals. And then you could also do your little charity efforts, you know, in addition to paying your fucking taxes* like everybody else.

JMO.

*I’m sorry, unpaid Twaxes.

This is How You Store Your Broken-Down Relic of a Car in the Richmond – Or It’s a Scene from the Planet of the Apes Sequel?

Thursday, September 12th, 2013

Hey remember when the Planet of the Apes people were filming all over town a couple months back?

It sort of looked like this:

If I ever got this desperate for parking, at least I’d curb my wheels, you know, by turning the steering wheel all the way to the right, just saying.

Skruuuunch! What Happens When You Forget That Your Bike Is Sitting Upright in Your Pickup

Tuesday, August 14th, 2012

The tiny, low-clearance garages of new construction in San Francisco have claimed another victim, 11foot8.com style.

See? This is post crash, with the driver backing out for damage assessment:

When I had a pickup, I’d just throw bikes in the back horizontal-like, but maybe there’s not enough room to do that in a Honda.

Impressive volume, flow rate and stream cohesiveness:

(Note the questioning look from a cyclist on the same sullied sidewalk. Civic Center Mike might not approve…)

Now here’s the end to this vignette.

See? A long romantic hug with a light pole

Masonic Tableau: What Do You See Here on the Needlessly-Wide Sidewalk? The Cyclist or the BMW?

Monday, June 18th, 2012

I’ll tell you, what I notice is not the attractiva on the orange, fully-loaded Public Bike from Public Bikes, but the illegally-parked, aging BMW 3-series convertible.

But that’s just me.

Hey, who do you think the SFMTA outreached when they wanted to focus-group the plan to put in more unnecessary trees on Masonic for $20,000,000 from Uncle Sucker and/or the taxpayers of the State of California? Do you think it was the users of Masonic Street or the people, like the BMW owner, who live next to it? That’s right, the SFMTA only focus-grouped the nearby residents of Masonic Avenue.

Is that the correct way to do things, SFMTA?

I don’t think it is.

Oh well.

Anyway, cyclists should continue to feel free to use the excessively-wide sidewalks of Masonic, depending on conditions, despite any peer pressure they might feel from governmentally-produced garbage such as this.
