“I’ll Take BOXY THINGS WE DON’T NEED ANYMORE for $400, Alex!” – A Scene from The Richmond

Monday, August 22nd, 2016

But the cathode ray tube (CRT) TV abandoned on the Avenues? Nobody wants that, obvs.

And the USPS letter box? It doesn’t get so much use anymore, but just try taking it away – you’ll hear howls of protest with a quickness I’m sure. (Or people’d email their complaints, more likely, these days.)

Which box do you prefer?

NFL Killjoys Remove SUPER BOWL 50 Decals from Garish “50” Advertising Sculptures, So No More SUPERB OWL, No More ‘SUP BRO

Monday, February 1st, 2016

[UPDATE: Oh, also the similar giant ad at the Palace of Fine Arts has had its letters removed now too. So that makes this A Trend. One assumes our NFL invaders have tired of nos jeux sans frontières. Haha! ‘SUP  BROS? You mad?]

Here’s how the ad atop Twin Peaks looks now – see? No more letter stickers:

Did the NFL PPL go up there and say, “The Hell With This” and then remove all the letters?

Aw, man!

One presumes this has something to do with the new part-time/temporary corporate medallions recently issued.

There’s Way More Poo in Justin Herman Plaza Now Than During the Height of OccupySF – Why Is That?

Wednesday, December 28th, 2011

Horses, that’s why. Police horses, that is.

Perhaps.

So, now that OccupySF is over, area property owners are happy? Really? Mmmm.

And who was it, was it Hawaiian Airlines or Disney what was demanding the end of OccupySF? Maybe I’ll look into that and see how they feel about Occupy. [Cough, boycott, cough.]

On It Goes…

*Owner of Embarcadero Center or someplace. (Now isn’t that a great name for a San Francisco company?)

I prefer the font on the upper box, for the record…
