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:
But, uh oh, the tree swing depicted in this Rec and Park logo violates Rec and Park rules, right? Check out #3:
Isn’t it ironic?
808 State: Hawaii’s Kaena Point is Where the North Shore Ends – Circumnavigating Oahu is Only Possible on FootTuesday, February 14th, 2012
Well here you go, you’ve already passed through the famous parts of the North Shore of Oahu, but you keep heading west until the semi-paved road turns to this, in Kaena Point State Park:

Here’s the birds-eye view, with the North Shore on the left side of the photo.
Alls that’s left to do is to hop out of your rental and then walk a few miles to go ’round the point by foot, why not?
Put this one on your bucket list:
Kaʻena or Kaena Point is the westernmost tip of land on the island of Oʻahu. The point can be reached by foot from both the West (Waiʻanae Coast) and the East (Mokulēʻia) coastlines; walking in from the north side is recommended. An unimproved track extends some 3 miles (4.8 km) along the coast from the end of the paved road on the north side, where a gate prevents entry of all except authorized vehicles.
On the south side, at Kaʻena State Park, a paved road passes a beach before terminating into an unpaved road. It continues for a few miles, after which the road is washed out, and further travel must be on foot. It is not possible to travel around the point in a vehicle as the route is better described as a “path” in most places, and is lined on one side with a cliff and on the other with basalt rocks which are quite capable of damaging vehicles. The path is completely washed out in one place on the South side of the point and a rope helps hikers traverse the gap.
Here’s the scene in Civic Center Plaza these days, with the easternmost flag having trouble recently. (There’s a flagpole rag and the wind won’t stop.)
Not sure what’s going on, maybe something wore out or maybe somebody’s making a statement:

Of course last year‘s Olympic protests around the Chinese Consulate at 1450 Laguna near Geary really livlied up the Western Addition / Japantown area in 2008. Let’s review and then see what’s coming up for 2009.
Did this really happen last year? Yes it did. It’s U.C. Davis grad / protest artist Nyendak Wangden hanging off the side of the gosh darn building. It’s supposed to look like she was hung by the neck, but she was safe under the robes in her climbing harness. Safe until somebody on the roof hacked at the red rope causing her to fall. Ouch.

How long a fall to the balcony would you say that was? 15 feet or so? Note the absence of the flagpoles in this later photo – those poles got nubbed shortly after the rope cutting incident.
The mise-en-scene from before the rope thang. (NB: The next time you illegally suspend yourself from a building to make a political point, do it above a balcony – it can be a long way to sidewalk otherwise:
But that was then, this is now. More recently, “serial package thrower” Aaron Bassler made the news by throwing items containing wacky stuff (something to do with the “Martian military”) over the fence of the consulate. These objects were treated as bombs by the SFPD. Thusly:
That crime wave is over. What’s coming up in 2009? Well, stuff to do with Tibet – read on after the jump.
And of course, the 20th anniversary of Tiananmen Square is coming up on June 4, 2009 as well. Just saying.
Concertina wire up on the roof and a decrease in flagpoles are two of the more obvious changes the past year. A recent photo:
