If You’re Looking for Rainbow-Colored, Electrified Paper Lanterns Hanging from Trees, Head Over to Market StreetThursday, June 9th, 2016
The installation looked a bit tricky:
‘Cause you know, many Frisco street trees kill / harm people who aren’t horsing around in them. Our poorly-selected municipal sidewalk “forest” is tres fragile, non? (I would have expected an expensive ladder truck and an expensive crew of five or so SFGov workers. You know, now I’m starting to wonder if this is an official project. Maybe it’s some kind of prank, who knows.)
You hung your lights in the trees
That’s how many came to grief
Oh here we go, all done. Look, Jennifer Aniston approves:
(Hey, why do we have Victorian-era, 17 foot tall magazine ad towers on the sidewalks and Streets of San Francisco? IDK, political corruption? And what’s the steampunk roof thing for? IDK. And why does it say “San Francisco?” Do people forget where they are sometimes? I mean who signed off on this cheesiness? Why don’t we just ash can these things?)

“Balderdash,” Caen wrote. “The toughest guys on the old S.F. waterfront, neither rubes nor tourists, called it Frisco, and no effete journalist would have tried to correct them.”

And look, the ‘bow has an arrow, a chemtrail.* Whoops I meant to say contrail.
The power of their source?
The ice crystal…
*Look – “chemtrails” all the way back in the 1940’s. It’s like, “Forget about the war effort, we gots to get our chemtrails on!” Or, simple chemistry. Take your pick
SF’s Recreation & Parks Dept Ad Says “GET OUT AND PLAY,” But If You Play This Way, You’ll Get Ticketed, Right?Tuesday, June 2nd, 2015
I never really got a proper answer on this one, so I’m going to to try again with a new photo.
“Affixing” items to Rec and Park trees is illegal, right?
So people who attach ropes to trees in Frisco parks get tickets from Rangers, right? Yes they do.
So what’s up with this graphic?
I can’t explain it.
Uh Oh: Does Rec and Park’s Logo Show Behavior That Violates Rec and Park’s Own Rules? Isn’t It Ironic?Monday, April 6th, 2015
So Makr Grl here was cruising by a Rec and Park tree and then, in the spirit of “GET OUT AND PLAY,” she performed a hack using found materials and then she “affixed” her new swing to a Rec and Park brand tree. And then merriment proceeded, thusly:

Bonus round: Rainbow Crowns!
Oh, and from Burger King’s FaceBook page, where people are writing in to say that they’ll never eat at BK again:
