See that? Our state workers are unwittingly venturing into the Food v. Fuel debate.

All right, I’m going to go eat some corn, or go for a drive, or something…

Two Problematic Drivers with Zero Legible License Plates – Your Uber-ish Black Lincoln Town Car and Your #1 Seller Toyota Prius

Tuesday, September 15th, 2015

Both these drivers seemed to be in a big hurry, based upon how fast they were racing towards a red light, one that they should have known would have been red if they’ve driven about Frisco for more than a week (which I’m very confident they have), and yet, here’s the view you’d have as a knocked-down ped seeing them drive off.

Note where in the lane the LTC driver stopped for a red:

Let’s see here, description – it was a Town Car, black, no license plate. THIS DESCRIPTION IS WORTHLESS TO ID A CAR IN FRISCO.

And the other – it was a Prius, IDK, black, tan, grey, beige, something like that, I couldn’t read the license plate. THIS DESCRIPTION IS WORTHLESS TO ID A CAR IN FRISCO.

Just saying.

Our license plate scanner-reliant popo should routinely pull over these types of rides to check up on things, IMO.

OMG, the New The Bold Italic is Here! – A Statement from the New Owners

Wednesday, August 12th, 2015

Here it is:


Let’s take a look:

“built a great brand over the course of several years.”

Great? Mmmm… Take a look here at the now-defunct Gannett Blog. What TBI was was a way for a Fortune 500 media company to spend millions upon millions on an experiment, one that didn’t work out. Any chance at sustainability was squandered on highly-paid design consultants and also squandered on the crushing rent burden of an expensive reclaimed wood clubhouse betwixt the gritty Twitterloin and trendy Hayes Valley. So, a great tax write-off for Gannett Co, Inc? YES. But a “great brand?” NO.

“we were surprised that TBI was shutting down”

Well, you shouldn’t have been. It was nice that a DC-area corporation could pay people money in SF, but the whole shebang wasn’t real, it wasn’t sustainable.

One of the reasons people love TBI is its focus on the authenticity of the San Francisco experience…” 

Objection, Your Honor – this clause assumes facts not in evidence. At least they aren’t evident to me. Sorry, but I gots to keep it real, I gots to be authentic.


Oh. I think we hit Peak World Class about a half-decade back, just saying. And even back then, I wouldn’t apply that phrase to this Curate’s egg of a website.

Having said all that, bygones. Some are optimistic while others are skeptical, to say the least, but let’s see how The New Bold Italic does.

After all, we all deserve a chance at a new start*…


*Including The Sans Serif…**

**But is this a new start? “Great article from on whether the article about “The Really Big One” was credible” Did I miss something? It seemed pretty credible to me…

“OOOOH, Barracuda” – A Classic Plymouth with HEART- Mopar Madness in Golden Gate Park

Monday, July 27th, 2015

Sing along: Barracuda.

I think this is it – this is the best license plate / car combo I’ve ever seen:

7J7C1558 copy

Know your Plymouth ‘Cudas.

Ooooh, street cred, sort of:

“In 2009, it was named the 34th best hard rock song of all time by VH1.”


“Ann Wilson revealed in interviews that the song was about Heart’s anger towards Mushroom Records’ attempted publicity stunt involving her and her sister Nancy Wilson in a made-up incestuous affair. The song particularly focuses on Ann’s rage towards a man who came up to her after a concert asking how her “lover” was. She initially thought he was talking about her boyfriend, band manager Michael Fisher. After he revealed he was talking about her sister Nancy, Ann became angry and went back to her hotel room to write the original lyrics of the song.”

And if the real thing don’t do the trick
You better make up something quick
You gonna burn, burn, burn, burn, burn to the wick
Ooooh, barracuda
Oh, yeah

FROGBUSTERS! [Read down starting here. This scene is a little bit away from the Lily Pond at the old quarry – let’s hope GGP won’t need too many frog docs in future.]

Another great shot via James Corrigan, this time at Stow Lake:
