Uh, I Don’t Think You Can Do This, SHIFT.com (AKA KPCB’s G2VP, DFJ, Highland Capital, DCM Ventures, Goldman Sachs)

[UPDATE: Oh, I see, this is a 2015 Volvo what got sold by SHIFT to be used as a LYFT, it now appears. So it aint a new car and yet it doesn’t have its California plates. Maybe it was an out of state car? IDK. A mystery to me.]

[UPDATE II, Electric Boogaloo: Oh here it is, being sold in Pasadena a few years back? Is this it too? Confused, oh well.]

SHIFT (company).

This Volvo isn’t a new car. If it were a new car, then it’d be a 2018 model, right? Or a 2017? But it’s not. And it’s sitting on a public street without a license plate, except for SHIFT (and LYFT) badging, some of which is license plated-shaped of course, but you know, not a real license plate. Now if this were a new car, then things might make sense, but I think you’d need to have your reg in the window, non? You know, maybe there is reg in the front window – I didn’t check as I was rolling through this block, sry. But doesn’t Shift deal in used cars? Or maybe somebody stole the license plates. But why does SHIFT have license plate covers in the first place, one wonders.

Don’t try this on your own ride, Gentle Readers.

Anyway, this isn’t usual, so I thought I’d tell you.

Brace Yourselves! Queen Meg to Visit Goldman Sachs at the BofA Building on Election Day

Monday, June 7th, 2010

(I’ll tell you, I’ve yet to see one of the many commercials for Meg Whitman for Governor – I guess they don’t have political ads sponsoring Glee, or I’m able to scroll right through them on my VHS, a kind of analog DVR that was popular before you were born. But I’ve seen a few vids against her on the YouTube and, frankly, I didn’t like the claymation one as I thought it was a bit cruel. However, this Queen Meg parody is looking pretty good, so that’s nice. And I’ll tell you, you know who doesn’t like this kind of mockery about queens and royalty and couldyousaysenatorinsteadofma’am? Other Female Electeds of every political stripe, that’s who. They don’t truck with this crap. They consider this kind of thing anti-female, theywouldneversaythataboutamanwouldthey. But you won’t ever hear those beefs, so I thought I’d tell you. Moving on…)

OMG! Queen Meg is coming to visit Goldman Suchs  in the Financh nabe at Noon on primary Election Day,* June 8th, 2010.

“California’s future monarch, Queen Meg, is ‘rich enough to  rule,’ and will be making her case with a royal bus tour of  Her Golden State this June 1 through 8. This satire is inspired by the efforts of Meg Whitman  to undermine democracy with her bottomless campaign  treasury. That’s why Queen Meg says, ‘We can’t afford our democracy, so why not try a monarchy.’”
 
Look for this dog and pony show at the corner of California and Kearny right next to the Banker’s Heart.
