See?

Look at me, aren’t I pretty! I’m the former Mayor’s granddaughter, did you know that? Vote for me, one, two or three! Do you know all that I stand for? I stand for corporate welfare for San Francisco biotechnology companies. And I stand for, uh, women, like you (unless you’re that horrid Janet Reilly woman, yish). And I stand for, uh…  Hey, I’m the former Mayor’s granddaughter, did you know that? Vote for me, one, two or three!

Of course MAP has no chance of winning on November 8th but that won’t stop her from using your taxpayer dollars to hire internationally-famous consultants and using your dough to pay for posters and ads what place her in a favorable light.

This is what we get from our current public financing system…

The Great Towaway of Bay to Breakers 100 a Huge Success – But, There are Fewer Than 100 Port-a-Potties in the Panhandle

Sunday, May 15th, 2011

Now remember, personal headphones are legal at today’s Bay to Breakers 100, but nudity is not – or is that the other way round? No matter, as long as you spectators can make it to Hayes Street Hill and the Panhandle area in the Western Addition, you’ll be sure to catch the action.

Why do they call the somewhat corrupt company what tows away your car “Auto Return?” They ought to call themselves Auto Take-away, right?

One car gets away  in the nick of time, but three others aren’t so lucky:

Ted and Al’s had like ten yellow tow trucks ready to go late Saturday night, in the driving rain. (Note how Bank of America is protecting its windows – the IndyBay crowd got to them, smashy smashy, about a year or so back, unrelated to Bay to Breakers.)

Now, speaking of prêt-à-porters, this is the main body, this is the largest array for the Golden Gate Park Panhandle:

And here’s the second-biggest grouping, along Masonic:

And there are some on the other side of Fell, typically in groups of six on some of the blocks.

But that’s it.

Not sure where B2B is hiding their 1000+ portable toilets claimed for 2011, at this point, just hours before the Kenyans take off on their winning runs.

Oh well.

And there’s no sign of the fencing neither, except for what they have every year.

We’ll see.

The Great Fence of B2B100 is supposed to have upon it either images of Christ hand-selected by P. Anschutz or photos of people who ran the race before white NIMBYs moved into the Western Addition. (You’ll have to tell me about it…). Anyway, here’s the baby fencing they have on scene already along with, and isn’t this cute, a message from San Francisco Natives for a Fun and Buzzed Bay to Breakers. Apparently, the cops can’t arrest for an open container in San Francisco…

And doesn’t this just break your heart – this Vespa scooter has been forgotten on the slopes of the famed Hayes Street Hill, the second highest point on the “racecourse.” Will Auto-Return charge $700 for its return?

Remember, Transit First.

All right, have a great Bay to Breakers 100!

An Against-The-Rule Photoshop Disaster: Jennifer Aniston’s New “Just Go With It” Movie

Thursday, January 20th, 2011

Check it.

The utter absence of any wrinkles ‘neath Jen’s right eye is uncanny.

So, not saying that this is a bad Photoshop. It’s good Photoshop, but it’s way too good.

Certainly, this job wasn’t meant to be seen larger than life on a MUNI bus stop poster:

In this flick, it appears as if Jennifer Aniston was on the search committee for a GF for her boss but she ends up the “winner” herself, like when Dick Cheney helped W find a veep….

(Does Jen have the worst ten-percenter in Hollywood history? Could be.)
