Spot the Missing Building: Motorcyclist’s Polished Helmet Offers a Fish-Eye View of the Western Addition

Monday, August 4th, 2014

Take a close look at this motorcyclist’s helmet on Geary – in between the two tall buildings, you can see the coming construction site of 1481 Post.

Dude gives off a Hank Schrader vibe:

Some people who opposed the 8 Washington Wall on the Waterfront project just might support a tall spire on the top of Cathedral Heights, right?

I think so.

Anyway, all moto helmets should be chromed, huh?

The Faces of Mayor Ed Lee: From Highly Ebullient to “Get This Guy Out of Here” in About Two Seconds

Thursday, October 6th, 2011

As seen at City Hall:

Here’s highly ebullient:

And here’s ebullient (nominal), a third of a second later:

And here’s the “I don’t know what you’re talking about” look, the “you’re not a member of the City Family, are you” look, a third of a second after that:

And one second later, it’s the “get this guy out of here” look, directed towards security:

And there you have it.

Which is the look of a veteran political survivor / law school graduate? Or, in other words, which look is real?

I’d say #3 or #4…

San Francisco Embraces the New San Francisco Chronicle

Sunday, February 15th, 2009

How can you tell that San Francisco embraces the new look San Francisco Chronicle? Easily, just by seeing that the taggers and sticker artists of the Western Addition are already eyeing the new tannish vending racks much as other artists would look upon an blank canvas.

Seeing as how I haven’t purchased a newspaper (or pre-recorded CD, pre-recorded DVD, or any kind of Blu-Ray disc) so far this millennium, I don’t know any difference. But the dead-tree readers surely do, and they must appreciate the quite modest price increase of just 50 cents more, Sundays only.

Speaking of which, some have taken to scratching off the new $2.00 Sunday stickers. Bad form. That must lead to consternation.

Will the new digital press make much of a difference?

Stay tuned…

“She May Look Clean, But…” – an Uncomplimentary Poster from the U.S. Government

Friday, December 26th, 2008

You might have seen this one before. How wude!

This poster warned that even the perfect girl-next-door could not be trusted. In contrast to the cigarette-smoking, heavily made-up women in posters warning against exposure to prostitutes, this poster features an apparently average and conservatively dressed woman who might also pose a threat. Featured in the poster is the warning to all servicemen that “She May Look Clean–But pick-ups, good-time girls and prostitutes” could be possible carriers of infection.”
