The Reason Why the Ponds of Golden Gate Park Look Blue: Because San Francisco Dyes Them That Way?

Friday, June 14th, 2013

Not a pretty blue, an unnatural blue.

Other times, these ponds look more green or aqua.

I guess it’s because Rec and Park or whomever wants to cut down on the amount of light going in, but I can’t prove it to you.

Anyway, this pond looks blue to me IRL, if not so much in this photo:

Hey Park and Rec! You’re Losing the McKinley Statue Graffiti Battle Again, Just So You Know – Long Term Plan?

Wednesday, August 15th, 2012

I thought you all were on top of this sitch.

What’s your long-term plan, DPR? Oh, I know, give you all more money. But if that’s not going to happen, what if we just take this whole statue thing out? Would you like that DPR?

Anyway, I think KKKatie is still in the hoosegow, but SFNOB(?) and cat-face have taken over the reigns…

Well, It Appears That Rec and Park is Getting the Upper Hand Against Graffiti on the McKinley Statue

It goes back and forth, but lately, RPD has been in the game.

(Perhaps local real estate interests have the ear of the powers that be these days.)

Here’s what 2011, 2010, 2010, and 2010 looked like.

And this here is the sitch a third of the way through 2012:

Looks fine to me.

That’s the update.

Leaving you will a gallery of older graffiti: 

The 66-Quintara is the Most Useless Bus Line in San Francisco – Here’s the Case for Killing It

Thursday, April 12th, 2012

Baghdad by the Bay makes the case for killing San Francisco’s Shortest Bus Line:

“This one has been on my mind for some time and after checking the route of the 66 Quintara bus. I think it’s time to put it out of commission. It is the shortest bus route beating the old winner the 37 Corbett and runs from 30th and Vicente to 9th and Judah now. If you need to get anywhere along that route there are other buses that can serve the need in a better way.”

So, it’s about seven blocks long and seven blocks wide?

Let’s kill this one, kill it dead.

Why Don’t We Give Back the McKinley Statue We’ve Abandoned? A Minas Morgul of Graffiti in the Panhandle

Monday, October 25th, 2010

Last I heard, KKKatey is still in jail, right? So who’s messing up this giant statue now? Why don’t we just give it back if we’re just going to abandon it to the East End Boys and girls with their makers and spray paint and whatnot?

Oh, I guess we ourselves built it, but maybe we should move it to a place where won’t serve as a graffiti beacon?

Look at this, Teddy Roosevelt visited the west end of Golden Gate Park back in the day, just south of the NoPA, west of the EaPA, and north of the SoPA.

See?

What would Teddy say if he could see this statue in the state its in now?

I mean, he spent time traveling here when he could have been in Africa killing ever more elephants, right?

Oh well…
