ZERO Anything and Anything ZERO are Usually Not Possible – This Large Ad on Market Proved the Point

Friday, March 2nd, 2018

Here’s the ad that promoted, and I’m srsly, an “international” anti graffiti meet-up in Frisco back in 2013. See what happened to it?


Malaria Zero? Possible.

AIDS Zero? Possible, over the long term.

Vision Zero 2024 San Francisco? Ridiculously not possible.

And of course Graffiti Zero? Not possible.

If you wish to promote your movement using ZERO Anything or Anything ZERO in 2018, time’s running out before you’ll need to find a new catch phrase…

AFAIK, the locus of support of DJT is the precinct at McAllister and Fillmore in the Old Folks Home district.

As stated, I’m stumped.

Twee Overload: Another Non-Safety-Related, Non-Improvement “Safety” “Improvement” for the Panhandle – How Does This Pole Help?

Wednesday, November 8th, 2017

Somehow, Rec and Park is trying to turn Golden Gate Park into some kind of old-school, National Park fantasyland, like something out of Every Day Is Like Sunday, these days.

So we’re paying for stuff like these Edwardian-era wooden benches, which to me don’t match the Panhandle’s current situation.

(Speaking of which, the wooden graffiti benches are getting used, but perhaps not by those intended by RPD. So people will check-in in the daytime, then you see them still there at the end of the day, and then they’re still there the next day, not that I care, but I question how much RPD knows about GGP, and the Panhandle part of it in particular.)

The concrete base has been at this location for a while now. I was thinking it could be for an LED light pole, but I was also thinking I’d be wrong. Turns out we’re getting a sign.

What will it say? Prolly the Rec and Park board would prefer something not allowed, such as ED LEE GETS IT DONE, XXX OOO, RPD, but maybe it will say, “Golden Gate Park?”


Now what I think RPD should do is widen the neighboring multi-use path that abuts Fell, but that might be too much of a heavy lift for them, oh well.

On it goes…

This was the vision, mostly that of landed gentry millionaires with Strong Ideas about How Things Should Look:

And this is the kind of post-vandalism fix-it job you can expect from Rec and Park, about a week or two after residents call the 311:

Not saying I could do better, but we’re down to bare wood here people, with no finish at all on all, pretty soon, looks like.

This vignette makes me think Wood Appears to have Been a Poor Choice for the Brand New Benches of the Golden Gate Park Panhandle.
