The Urban Assault Vehicle that Shut Down OccupySF – SFPD’s Mobile Command One Parked Between 101 Market and JHP

Thursday, December 15th, 2011

Here it is, Mobile Command One, guarding a Bank of America branch at 49 Market betwixt OccupySF’s former Justin Herman Plaza location and OccupySF’s former annex location at 101 Market in front of our Federal Reserve Building:

This thing is big, just like Mobile Command Two, which, once again, is parked up Market these days in Union Square, you know, to catch the seasonal shoplifters.

However, Mobile Command Three is less impressive – it gets spray painted by taggers on Sixth Street sometimes, no respect at all.

Now you better know your SFPD Mobile Commands.

How to Live in San Francisco Rent-Free for the Long Term – Just Get Yourself an RV, No Problem

Monday, August 22nd, 2011

Eventually, NIMBY homeowners, who, you know, have nothing against you personally but they just want you gone gone gone, will contact the authoritahs and here’s what they’ll do. They’ll send somebody over to knock on your door to see what you’re up to.

And here’s what you’ll do: NOTHING. And then the cops will leave. Easy peasy.

Eventually, you’ll get a colony going, you’ll be trading tips and laughing at the uptight NIMBY homeowners, you know, those impotent people.

You’ll be there for years, saving all kinds of money on rent, utilities and whatnot.

The SFPD’s “Mobile Command Three” Might Be Small But It’s Having a Great Effect Upon Sixth Street Lately

Thursday, May 26th, 2011

First up, Know Your SFPD Command Posts:

San Francisco Police Mobile Command One is huge, as you can see…

…as is Mobile Command Two:

As for Mobile Command Three, well, not so much:

Via Bluoz

But here it is, stationed on Sixth Street , as it’s been, ’cause there’s a new sheriff in town, or something – there’s a police crackdown going on Sixth Street, the southern extension of the world-famous crime-ridden Tenderloin.

Now, let’s hear from local resident Bluoz to see what’s been going on the past couple weeks:

“It’s the 2nd week now It’s not there all the time, and now it’s mobile unit 3, but all accounts say it’s made 6th street much more civil lately, even if it is just for show.”

So it appears that the recent crackdown on the upper stretches of 6th Street, instigated by this incident one might think, continues.

For how long, who knows?

Hurray!

Union Square Shoplifters Agree: SFPD Mobile Command Two is Soooo Much Nicer Than the Older Mobile Command One

Monday, December 6th, 2010

Word on the street is that San Francisco Police Mobile Command Two is soooo much nicer inside than the older San Francisco Police Mobile Command One.

Guess they got all the bugs worked out…

(Note hydraulic legs helping to level out the parking job.)

Presenting, the van that thinks it’s a house, redux:

And here’s MC One, also seen on Market Street. (Its bigger-looking booty is just an optical delusion.)

Straight out of Louisiana, Mobile Command One from Ferrara Fire Apparatus and Applied Global Technologies might be the center of attention the next time San Francisco faces a crisis:

Baby got back, non?

Learn to love me
Assemble the ways
Now, today, tomorrow and always
My only weakness is a listed crime
My only weakness is … well, never mind, never mind
Oh, shoplifters of the world
Unite and take over

Shoplifters of the world
Hand it over
Hand it over
Hand it over at U. N Plaza
Learn to love me
And assemble the ways
Now, today, tomorrow, and always
My only weakness is a listed crime
But last night the plans of a future war
Was all I saw on Channel Four
Shoplifters of the world
Unite and take over
Shoplifters of the world
Hand it over
Hand it over
Hand it over
A heartless hand on my shoulder
A push – and it’s over
Alabaster crashes down
(Six months is a long time)
Tried living in the real world
Instead of a shell
But before I began …
I was bored before I even began

Shoplifters of the world
Unite and take over
Shoplifters of the world
Unite and take over
Shoplifters of the world
Unite and take over
Shoplifters of the world
Take over

End of Days Bumped Up from 2012 to May 21, 2011 – Alamo Sqaure RV Shows How Mayans Erred

Tuesday, August 24th, 2010

You think the world will end in 2012, but that’s where you’re wrong.*

Turns out Armageddon is coming sooner than that.

As seen in the Western Addition, East of NoPA:

Those Mayans are totally pwned by this gambit. Well done.

*Whatever you do, DON”T “get the  toolbar.”

You can save a lot of money on rent if you buy a mobile home and then start living in it for years on the streets of San Francisco.

All you need to do is fire her up once a week to avoid the street sweepers.

Living Off The Grid Yet On The Streets of San Francisco

Thursday, July 10th, 2008

Lots of people would like to live in San Francisco, but rents can be high. So, some just get an RV and just put it in a place where it’s free to park overnight. Which is pretty much everywhere in San Francisco.

Get a quiet Blue Max generator (chugga chugga chugga...) to keep your laptop charged up (but don’t tell the CARB!) and find a free source of WiFi, and then you’ll stay connected when you’re living rent-free in the City. Off the grid.

You should be fine as long as you don’t try this in the Sunset district, where they’d run you out of town in a New York minute.
