As seen above the 8400(!) block* of Geary

*So Geary ends on the 8300 block way out there in the West Bay, but some SFGov worker labeled the Geary Expressway underneath Masonic (aka the Geary Tunnel) the 8400 block? As per Wiki

Mother of All Double Parkers: The Super Pretzel Truck – Blocking Outbound Market Daily

Tuesday, February 10th, 2015

If I were the Super Pretzel pushcart people on Market at the cable car turnaround, I’d push these carts somewhere else before the lengthy loading and unloading process:

Just saying…

But these people don’t care – on they go with lifting and the lowering, on they go as westbound traffic backs up behind them…

Uh, What Exactly is That Equinox Company Selling in the Pacific Stock Exchange in the Financial District?

Friday, January 4th, 2013

Here are two ads for Equinox Fitness on Pine Street what are about three yards high:

I think things were a lot more wholesome at the Pacific Stock Exchange Building when it was the Pacific Stock Exchange. You know, back when Kevin Bacon filmed that Quicksilver bike messenger movie in 1986 before you were born. It went a little like this, with KB acting as a besuited yuppie stock broker at the PSE at Pine and Sansome.

You see, back then, everybody wore clothes and open outcry was the order of the day.


Good times.

Suntory times

San Francisco’s Former Pacific Stock Exchange Has Been Reduced to a Gymnasium Outfit What Thinks It Owns Our Sidewalks

I’ll bet his name is Bruno, something like that:

Now, is Equinox Fitness supposed to be tearing up the sidewalks of 301 Pine Street with their lead sled contraptions?

No, not at all.

Oh well.

First sidewalk bowling and now this.

“San Francisco City Family” Union Lawyer Vince Courtney Threatens YouTube and Vimeo Over This Video?

Friday, August 31st, 2012

Well, let’s see, the last time I checked into this incident in Golden Gate Park from 2010 involving union lawyer Vince Courtney was this:

Embarassed San Francisco Lawyer Requests and Gets a YouTube Takedown, To No Avail

But recently, like this month, Vimeo too, has acted, so, once again, you couldn’t see what occurred on your PC or whatever.

But now, look what just popped up on the YouTube:

Encounter with Vince Courtney, Part Two

IMO, back then and now, lawyer Vince Courtney got outfoxed* by a layperson.**

But You Make The Call:

I don’t know, if I were a certain attorney, I’d let sleeping dogs lie.

But that’s just me…

*I can explain to you how “street mediation” works, you know, when conducted by peace officers in this kind of situation. Could this lawyer have been arrested? I don’t know. But he seemed afraid of something. 

**I mean, he just pushed and pushed until he got the most he could possibly get, and he got it all recorded, and then posted it for tout le monde to see. That’s called advocacy.

Jesse Jackson Fondly Recalls the Time When Mayor Ed Lee Stood With Tenants and Opposed Wage Theft

Saturday, November 5th, 2011

My, how things have changed in three decades.

Let’s hear from Jesse Jackson today, talking about 1982, you know, back before you were born:

“Ed Lee stood with immigrants, seniors and tenants to protect them from deportation, wage theft and eviction.”

All right. Now, I don’t know, some people deserve to get deported and/or evicted, it all depends.

But nobody deserves wage theft, right?

And yet, what do you call this? (So we should have HSCO / Healthy San Francisco money go back to companies and restaurants and whathaveyou because that’s what the companies and restaurants want? Apparently.)

And Ed Lee “stood with tenants,” back in the day? All right, Jessie, but what about now? What about this? Is Ed Lee now, as the article suggests, the “preferred candidate for landlords” and those who “run tenants out” of San Francisco apartments? Well, yes, obviously. Who else, among the major candidates, could fit this description?

I mean, is there any conservative group / institution / political party / whatever in San Francisco what doesn’t support Ed Lee for Mayor?

And yet, there’s Jessie in there, chanting the mantra: ED LEE Gets It Done: 

So, say it, Jessie:

I, Jesse Jackson, join with the San Francisco Republican Party* to offer my support for the election of Ed Lee as Mayor of San Francisco.

Say it.

Say it!

*Check it from the SFGOP.Org in the “OUR ENDORSEMENTS” section: “Supported for Mayor – Ed Lee” Now, do the San Francisco Democrats support or endorse Ed Lee? No, not at all. 

Teach the Children Well: Proper Bike Security is the First Lesson to Learn on the Mean Streets of San Francisco

That heavy-duty chain and tiny U-lock probably outweigh this wooden push-bike:

Does the kid wear the chain bandolier-style when s/he’s riding? That’d be sweet…

Forget About Track Bikes and Fixies, the Latest Thing is the Kick Bike – It’s the Ur-Bicycle Reborn – It’s Now, It’s Wow

Here’s what you need – a Kick Bike!

And, actually, it’s the ur-bike. It’s just like this Draisine / Laufmaschine from the ’20’s.

That’s the 1820’s, partner:

Whether you want to stand or sit, a push bike is for you. There’s no pesky chain to get in the way of a True Bicycling Experience.

And Amazon has them for like $110.

See you on Valencia!
