MUNI’s 83X “Twitterloin Express” Service Begins Today – From CalTrain to the Corrupt Twitterloin and Back

Monday, June 11th, 2012

Sixteen months ago:

Prospective Twitter Landlord Gave Newsom Rent Deal

Today:

“Here it is- the first run of the new “twitter line”. Guess how many people on board?! pic.twitter.com/YSezC2GF

From the CalTrain Station to Twitter and back again

So the lesson is this: If you have influence with former Mayor Gavin Newsom and he thinks you can help him fulfill his dream of becoming President of these United States, then maybe you’ll get your own bus line.

Hurray.

Oh, and do you think that this M-F bus line will cost less to operate than it costs to employ just one MUNI employee?

I don’t. But that’s what MUNI is saying

San Francisco Pedestrian Patiently Waits for Light While Standing in Traffic Only Just 15 Feet From the Curb

Wednesday, December 7th, 2011

This is a little unusual, but that’s what you’ve got to expect from peds on Market Street.

You see, she wasn’t crossing yet, she was just standing around waiting for her light to turn green. It was like she thought she was on an invisible bulb-out:

27th Annual Alamo Square Indie Mart and Flea Market a Huge Success – Thousands Show

Saturday, August 21st, 2010

Well, today’s Alamo Square Flea Market and Indie Mart attracted thousands to the Western Addition today.

Here’s the west si-iiide featuring the Westerfeld House, aka the Russian Embassy from Tom Wolfe’s Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test.

“Up at Fulton and Scott is a great shambling old Gothic house, a freaking decayed giant, known as The Russian Embassy”

Und der Süden:

The raffle board is a who’s who of local bidnesses:

See you next year!

*Nobody wants your aging boxy CRT TV. My hefty early-1990′s Sony Trinitron is worth maybe ten cents a pound these days but only because it still works flawlessly. When it finally gives up its ghost, it will be worth negative dollars, it will be a liability. Really, it’s unsellable, regardless of whether it works or not.

**I’d seal my haul in plastic bags and let it all sit for weeks (preferably in the freezer, if feasible), but that’s just me. Bedbugs sometimes attend those flea markets, of course…
