The lack of a logo really draws attention to this laptop, Hollywood.
You should have just put a sticker on it, IMO. That would have been verite.
For example, here’s what part of Potrero Hill looks like, more or less, IRL:
And here’s what the TBI published:
You see, the colors have been turned up to 11 – note the Chernobyl-esque glowing yellow trees, for example.
So, add that to your list of photo don’ts, TBI.
Thank you, drive through.
Register now, if you want to go:
Google is now careful about revealing too much about tony Presidio Terrace, as it’s a private street.
Google didn’t know that back in 2007.
It might look like a public street but it’s not, so the people that live on this small loop just north of Clement are free to hire a guard to keep out whomever they want. And not too long ago, the houses here all had restrictive covenants that prevented people of the “non Caucasian race” from buying or leasing on this street. An ad from the latter part of 1906:There is only one spot in San Francisco where only Caucasians are permitted to buy or lease real estate or where they may reside. That place is Presidio Terrace.”
But now Google does know, so no Street Maps for you – it’s terra incogniter. See?
It looks like Instagram or something.
Anyway, the data from the Google Maps Car visit of 2006 is gone.
And the residents like things that way, I suppose.
Oh, well, here’s the whole thing, or at least all of the back of the mailer.
(When they say Shell Oil, what they mean is Shell Energy North America.)
Now, why did the dumb-clucks who made this ad decide to pick the world’s most solar-powered gas station?

I don’t know, because they don’t know what they’re doing?
NB: Your bad cosmetic surgery fools nobody. People laugh at you when your back is turned, you know, at those benefits ‘n stuff. Perhaps just aging gracefully is a better, safer option?
This is how they do it, with a flyer in the mail talking about how Christina Olague and Julian Davis support giving nearly $20,000,000 a year to Shell Oil.

Now, is that true?
But it appears that Christina Olague and Julian Davis have run afoul of a few PG&E-loving Bay Area billioniares, et uxes.
Now, I’d call this cabal Conway/Coates, but they, and I’m seriously, call themselves:
“San Francisco Women for Accountability and a Responsible Supervisor Opposing Christina Olague 2012.”
So that’s SFWFAAARSOCA 2012 for short, sort of.
Here’s Tim Redmond’s take:
But hey, do you see the orange skies up there, right where the heads of the progressive D5 front-runners have been Photoshopped?
Hey, I know, let’s take Linda Voight and Photoshop her into a shot of the Great PG&E Pipeline explosion of San Bruno.
I see dead people:
Now doesn’t she look evil?
I think so.
The people behind the 2012 GapFit campaign had all the tools to do a good job, but they ended up doing a bad job, IMO.
I’m talking about twisted torsos, thinned bodies in certain areas, embigged body parts in other areas, messed-up (blown out) colors, etc.
Is this how you run, you twist your entire body towards the camera?
Take a look for yourself.
OMG, you gotta get over there and check it out.
