Here’s All What’s Left of 1994’s Giant “Gold Mountain” Mural at Romolo Place in North Beach – GraffitiThursday, July 21st, 2016
First, the giant mural of Romolo was all like this:
But now it’s all like this – I haven’t been through this way since it got painted over, thusly:
“I’m done with them. That’s why the mural is painted over,” Sherry said. She said that during the 2004 restoration, which took almost a year, she worked on the mural six days a week for almost a year and was only compensated for transportation and lunch. “It was an absolute nightmare,” she said. “All they could pay me was coming out of their poor little pockets, so I accepted it because at the time I could afford to take a lot of time to do this. … So I basically just did the work, and they let it go to hell again.
There was a theory that murals discourage graffiti. I don’t know well that theory worked out…
So here’s CWNevius in June 2016, worried that the Stanford rape case might “endanger our judiciary” due to the loud complaints about the judge’s sentencing. Fine.
But here’s the very same CW Nevius, also in June 2016, telling people to “complain loudly” about the decisions of local judges. See?
So what’s the deal? Is he trying to curry favor with our unpopular Mayor again while at the same time fulfilling an assignment to write something, anything, about a local story what’s gone national?
IDK, but it don’t add up.
This kind of thing, as seen recently on the windswept Geary Transit Corridor…
You know what I think? I think that sometimes companies pay money to Clear Channel Outdoor so that it will send part of that money to out sad-sack SFMTA and then maybe SFGov / the SFMTA will then look kindlier upon said generous companies. So it’s kind of more like a bribe / kickback / apology than a pure, earnest attempt at advertising.
I could cite examples…
