Driving Etiquette: Rolls Royce Owner in the Western Addition Goes About with Pinkie Finger Upraised, As If Drinking Tea

Monday, April 27th, 2015

I’m not sure what Brocephus here was doing – he might have been eating an Egg McMuffin or he might have actually been drinking tea. This is the only shot I have, so I suppose I’ll never know:

No matter, his left pinkie was upraised, scoring mad baller points.

Proper!

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!

Prediction: The First Gold Apple Watch Theft/Robbery in San Francisco Will Occur in June 2015

Tuesday, February 24th, 2015

Do you love gold?

Lots of criminals do.

And pretty soon, they’ll realize that the value of the gold in some new watches from Apple is very very high.

Let’s see what the SFPD has to say:

“As with any new technology, of course there is a concern that thieves will prey on victims with the new technology,” San Francisco Police Department public information officer, Albie Esparza said. “Criminals are opportunistic. If there is a demand, there will be supply. It’s simple business economics.”

So, I don’t care what security features your multi-thousand dollar gold iWatch has, there’s nothing stopping somebody from taking your shiny and then melting it down to sell the gold for $1000 an ounce.

We’ll see…

Now here’s a guy at the Original Aple Store at 1 Stockton in Union Square trying and failing to shoplift some $350(!) Beats headphones:

Apple realizes that its new watches will need to be protected just as at any other Union Square jewelry / bling bling store.

But once its on your wrist, security will be YOUR problem.

Choose wisely.

San Francisco City Hall: The Largest Classical Dome in the Western Hemisphere

Monday, November 10th, 2014

What’s that – what about x, it’s larger? Yeah, but that one’s not in the Western Hemisphere.

What’s that – what about x, it’s higher? Nope, it’s not. City Hall is relatively new, just 99 years* old, due to the Big One in 1906. So they said, well, let’s make this one just a little bit taller.

What’s that – what about x, it’s way bigger? Yeah, but that’s new-school dome, not in the classic tradition.

*Hey, the 100th birthday is coming up in 2015. I’m sure that there will be a celebration. An extremely boring celebration

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!
