Twee Overload: Little Houses, But on Wheels – The Smallest Room You Can Rent in Frisco for $250 Per NightThursday, July 21st, 2016
The Motorized Tricycles of Frisco’s Financial District – Are You More Batman or More Bieber? Polaris Slingshot vs. GOcarWednesday, July 13th, 2016
And look, another trike on the same block, more or less, just moments later. It’s much cheaper. (And born in Frisco, just like those people who are quite proud to tell you they’re “born and raised” here and whatnot.)
This Bieberesque couple looked like they were both 14 – I don’t know what any age cutoff might be.
And best of all, the two-stroke GOcar engines are all gone bye bye.
All right, choose your tricycle.
Our SFMTA is Now Selling Neighborhood Street Parking Spaces for $2000 per Year – Getaround – “Carshare” They Call ItThursday, December 10th, 2015
It looks like this:
If you have a car but don’t give our SFMTA any money, then the SFMTA views you as a deadbeat. Our SFMTA wants/needs to grow, and it’s going to get more of your money to do it, just saying.
So what’s stopping it from painting up the Sunset and selling off (aka “manage”) spaces out there as well? IDK
Le Update: “ALAMO DRAFTHOUSE CINEMA / ANNAPURNA PICTURES TO KEEP LE VIDEO ARCHIVE COLLECTION TOGETHER IN A NEW LOCATION”Wednesday, December 9th, 2015
So this is how it ends for Le Video, which, back in the day, managed to fight off a BlockBuster Video what was one week away(!) from opening up less than one block away on 9th Avenue.
But streaming? Nothing beats streaming.
So, it’s come to this.
If you want, read their Yelp reviews from the bottom up, you know, for a laugh.
(I should add that Alamo Drafthouse at the old New Mission is looking awesome, with ticket prices looking surprisingly low to this old-timer.)
“ALAMO DRAFTHOUSE CINEMA AND ANNAPURNA PICTURES JOIN FORCES TO KEEP LE VIDEO ARCHIVE COLLECTION TOGETHER IN A NEW LOCATION
San Francisco, CA – December 9, 2015 – Following the November closing of long-running San Francisco neighborhood video store and archive Le Video, it was announced today that Alamo Drafthouse founder and CEO Tim League, along with Academy Award-nominated producer Megan Ellison and he, has arranged for the preservation of the Le Video collection.
Bay Area residents will soon be able to access portions of the Le Video archive at San Francisco’s new Alamo Drafthouse Cinema. Exact details are still pending, but Alamo Drafthouse will partner with Mission neighborhood video store Lost Weekend to rent selections from the Le Video archive in the spacious lobby of the new theater, along with a deeply curated collection of films from the Lost Weekend archive.
“The experience of going to my local video store when I was young made me the movie fan I am today,” says Drafthouse founder and CEO Tim League. “Despite the fact that great video stores like Le Video are closing all over the country, I am confident that a new iteration of the video store experience can exist, and even thrive today. A passionate video store clerk can do what no algorithm can. They can recommend your new favorite movie, one that can’t be predicted from your past viewing habits.”
The Alamo Drafthouse Cinema will open for Star Wars on the 17th of December. The Lost Weekend lobby video store is slated to begin in January. Subscribe to the Alamo Drafthouse newsletter or follow @drafthouseSF on twitter for news as it happens.”
So tune up your VHS machine and wait for 2016…
And he’s reaching up to grab me
And I have it all here
In red blue green
In red blue green
Out of control on videotape
On videotape [x6]
Because I can’t do it face to face
So I’m talking to you before it’s too late
I shouldn’t be afraid
Because I know today has been the most perfect day I’ve ever seen.
Getaround Rent-A-Car Attains Personhood Status – Big Corporation Granted Coveted Residential Parking Program (RPP) Permits?Thursday, November 5th, 2015
I thought you needed to prove that you lived (or worked, in some cases) in the area in order to qualify for the Residential Parking Permit Program.
Is Getaround Rent-a-Car now a resident in the 94117?
So you can’t park in Getaround Rent-a-Car’s (formerly public) parking spaces for even one minute, but Getaround Rent-a-Car can park in your spaces all day long?
Grading the Getaround Rental Car Company on How It Maintains the Formerly Public Parking Spaces It’s Supposed to MaintainThursday, October 29th, 2015
Hey, here’s a question – why can’t our SFMTA issue tickets for blocking street sweepers if the spaces they’re taking up need cleaning?
And here’s an answer – the rental car companies don’t feel like getting tickets, so they had our laws written for their benefit.
Are there any other answers?
Not that I can think of…
