The Worst Scooter Parking Job Ever in the History of San Francisco

Friday, January 16th, 2015

Reader “C” saw how a Bro manspreaded his red scooter:

“No doubt there will be notes left on his scooter. That’s not very nice parking. Is he making a point or something?”

Men are pigs, right ladies? I’ll bet this San Francisco scooter jockey wouldn’t dream of parking in such a fashion…


Our Inefficient, Wasteful San Francisco Film Commission is Desperately Trying to Justify Itself – Potential Marketing Efforts

Friday, October 31st, 2014

These aren’t real ads, not yet. But they show you how the SFFC is thinking:


(BTW, what the SFFC calls a “job” is what I’d call a gig, some of which are offered at less than minimum wage, just like the America’s Cup)

All film commissions are bad.

How is the SFFC better than any of the rest?

How is the SFFC better than SF’s recent hosting of the disastrous America’s Cup?

BTW, NBC’s Trauma medical drama was a big piece of shit, you know, frankly. Now people might say that I shouldn’t say that, but I don’t think they’d contradict me. Yes, the Trauma people spent some money and some people benefited, but there’s no reason why they should be treated any different than any other group of visitors coming to town. Anyway, Trauma sucked, big-time, despite what the SFFC people said about it. And part of the reason why it was cancelled had to do with how damn expensive it was to film on the Streets of San Francisco. So, what I’m saying is that maybe the whole concept of filming Trauma on location in SF was a bad idea – I’m certainly not saying we should have subsidized its production even more than we did.

And if Hollywood says it doesn’t want to come here to film, that’s O.K. Some productions, the ones that make sense, will come anyway.

Anywho, look for one of these feel-good banner ads to appear on your screens soon…

Kicking That Horrible Zynga Company When It’s Down – Ouch – Maybe They Should Have Moved Away

Friday, August 3rd, 2012

Wow, the first two-thirds of this short video from Kixeye is pure comedy gold:

Read the news and turn the pages:

“Zynga also hit an all-time low Thursday, trading down as far as $2.68 before closing at $2.70, a daily drop of 3.9 percent. After a shake-up in the San Francisco company’s management ranks, it faces two more class-action lawsuits, on top of one already filed earlier this week.”
