Tower Cranes, Post Street – Or, How to Address a Group of Developers at a Political Fundraiser

Tuesday, October 11th, 2016

Oh, did I say “political fundraiser?” What I meant to say was event, or better yet, soiree. Never call a fundraiser a fundraiser – that’s the rule.

Anywho, what you do is start off by saying that the official bird of Frisco is no longer the California Quail, it’s the crane. The construction crane! (‘Cause you don’t know to call it a tower crane.) And then you laugh at your own “joke.” And then you blow a few dog whistles, you know, scary names like CHRIS DALY or AARON PESKIN afore you remind one and all how critical their “support” is to you and how, basically, all of us in this room are on the same team.


That’s how it works.

In closing, build, build, build.

Salesforce Tower is Coming Along Nicely in SoMA – Giant “Eye of Sauron the Great” to be Installed Next Week

Thursday, October 6th, 2016

As it looks from my ‘hood at Zero Dark Thirty:


Artist’s conception of finished tower after installation:


The Terrible Zigûr will keep an “eye” on Mount Sutro, depicted at right, and maybe buy Twitter, who knows.

When asked for comment, Gorthaur the Cruel cryptically bellowed, “Bedrock, baby!”

That’s a good one, Sauron. Keep ’em coming.

Welcome to town, Dark Lord.

Entire SFMTA MUNI Bus “Wrapped” to Criticise – I’ve Never Seen This

Thursday, September 22nd, 2016

From a distance, I thought this was a school bus:


Some other similar ads mock interns loading data into SF all summer long, something like that.

So now Salesforce has become an ogre itself, like Oracle, Microsoft, or IBM? IDK about that.

Oh, Hello SalesForce Tower – Gee, You’re Kind of Blue

Wednesday, August 31st, 2016

Temporarily, I s’pose.

Still, it’s quite striking if you’re not yet used to seeing this building.

Hey, Salesforce Tower – do you, you know, considering the landfill issue, go all the way down to bedrock? Oh you do? Awesome.

Hey, is That Notorious “Bluewolf” Salesforce DreamForce Chalk Ad Company Making Amends with SFMTA Bus Advertising?

Thursday, October 8th, 2015


Here’s your background.

I’ve never seen an ad like this afore:

How long did it take to create, one wonders? About two seconds?

No matter, I’m sure SFGov is starting to think of the bluewolf as a good corporate citizen now…

Dreamforce Nightmare: Ohio-Based Advertising Firm Glee-fully Mocks SF – Boasts of “Earned Media Impressions” from Illegal Graffiti

Tuesday, September 15th, 2015

Here’s a typical tweet about yesterday’s L’Affaire du Bluewolf:

“Why not tell what you think of his blithe, scofflaw attitude in smearing his graffiti all over SF?

And here’s the write-up by Joe Garofoli: “Tech company defies San Francisco graffiti ban at Dreamforce.”

Now let’s hear from the people at CivitasNow, the company what promised to clean up the sidewalks of SoMA and the Financh yesterday afternoon:

You see that? They think this whole sitch is funny.

I think I see the problem here, I think the CivitasNow people are thinking they might get a ticket for two or three or four or five figures, but, IRL, what they might end up with is a settlement for six or seven figures if they continue to embarrass / piss off / mock area residents, such as a Mayor, or a City Attorney, or even a Benioff or two.

Hey CivitasNow, hey Bluewolf, do you think there might be a reason why some DreamForcers covered up some of your numerous chalk ads?

Perhaps you all have reached Pariah status, but you don’t even know it?
