Here is wisdom. Let him that has understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is six hundred three score and six.

When Visiting Chinatown, Be Sure To Take a Selfie with a Banksy – “Peaceful Hearts Doctor” at 799 Commercial Near Grant

Wednesday, June 25th, 2014

Thusly. Strike a pose, mate: 

Click to expand, Gov’ner. Right!

Of course this shot was from back in the day, from back before the Black Paint Attack of 2013, which damaged the appearance of the famously peaceful heart doctor.

But a genuine 2010 Banksy is a genuine 2010 Banksy, right? So check it out the next time you’re on Eddy Grant Avenue – it’s electric!

Here’s your Map, from all the way back in 2011. Can you spot the Banksy

Sure you can!

San Francisco’s Most Famous Car of 2014: A “Mirror-Finish Aston Martin Rapide, Because Eff You, That’s Why”

Wednesday, June 11th, 2014

[UPDATE: Word on the street is that the driver lives in The Avenues, where he has a rep for driving too fast out there. Word on the street is that the driver has a "neckbeard."]

I seen this $200k+ Aston Martin Rapide all over town – I seen it I seen it! In the Financh, the SoMA, the Fillmore, pretty much all over the 1/8th of a pie slice that is northeastern SF.

(This ride has now officially stolen the thunder of that Kandy-Kolored Gold-Flake Streamline Baby Lambo used as a daily driver(!) by a CCSF junior college student.)

So, why the mirror finish, dahling? Well, per Arlen of Flickr, “because fuck you, that’s why.”

And, has this garish Aston been registered in California yet? Well, maybe, but if it has a CA license plate, it’s certainly not mounted on the back where it should be, and that’s odd, because it’s been in town for a while, oh well.

Who can solve this mystery?

As seen being driven, poorly, in the Upper Fillmore area…

Did I say yellow brick road? What I meant to say was red paint road – it guides your way to these famous hyperbolic paraboloids:

Spank the Landlord! – Infamous Owner of 312 Fillmore Gets a Notice of Violation from San Francisco – Tenants Strike Back

Friday, May 23rd, 2014

Well some tenant at 312 Fillmore got a letter from the landlord and sent it off to Hoodline.com and the rest is history.

Here’s the update. Some of the tenants contacted DBI. See?

And then DBI sent an Inspector out two days ago.

And then the Inspector looked around and filed a Notice of Violation yesterday.

On 5/21/14 Inspector Steve Mungovan investigated the complaint at unit #25 of the subject property and observed violations of the San Francisco Housing Code which are delineated within the Notice of Violation issued on 5/22/2014 identified by Complaint Tracking #201474055. Pertinent observations are as follows: Peeling paint and damaged wall surfaces.”

This is only going to get worse for this particular landlord.

Oh, and guess what? If the LL tries to evict anybody soon, that action just might be presumed to be a retaliatory eviction.

Ouch.

On It Goes…

What’s that, it’s chalk and it’ll just wash off?

I don’t think that’s how things work in this town.

In this town, the City Attorney’s Office just might go after you…

McKinley Statue Update: Fenceless and Defenseless, Graffiti Attacks Continue – Nevertheless, It’s a Meeting Place

Friday, May 2nd, 2014

If you want to learn yourself about the William McKinley statue and the Golden Gate Park East End Girls and Boys who hang out at the eastern end of GGP, click here.

What do you see in this photo? Are you a realtor* who sees the graffiti or are you a dirty hippie who sees other hippies hanging out after riding their bikes?

(I see both, actually. And I don’t have any objections to the current situation, not being a NIMBY or a real estate broker myself.)

Anyway, local real estate interests and the silverbacks at RPD still want their damn “period-specific” fence to keep out the dirty dirty hippies and their spay paint cans.

Like this:

I don’t know how you can look at this illustration and not chuckle, but they were serious about this.

Hey, RPD and the arts people, can you think of another solution?

Just asking.
