OMG, OMG, OMG: Via ScoutMob, Free Sandwiches From Ike’s Place in the Castro District!

Monday, November 7th, 2011

OMG, this is it. [Cue O Fortuna]

It’s the fourth anniversary of obscenely-highly-regarded Ike’s Place, so ScoutMob has a free sandwich deal for you.

You can’t beat that.

(I guess Ike won that NIMBY war after all. Good for him.)

Anyway, enjoy.

Count of Monte Chase-O Fortune,
like the moon
you are changeable,
always waxing
or waning;
hateful NIMBYs
first oppress
and then soothe
as fancy takes it;
poverty
and power
but Hot Momma Huda
melts them like ice.

Fate – monstrous
and empty,
you whirling wheel,
stand malevolent,
well-being is vain
and always fades to nothing,
shadowed
and veiled
you plague Ike Shehadeh too;
now through trickery,
I bring my bare back
to your NIMBY villainy.

Fate, in health
and in virtue,
is against me,
driven on
and weighted down,
always enslaved.
So at this hour
without delay
pluck the vibrating string;
since Fate
strikes down the strong man,
everyone weep with me

Or at least that’s the way it seems from Twin Peaks.

San Francisco Loves Again: F*CK MORMONS Banner Removed

Tuesday, November 11th, 2008

Things were a little hateful around the area of 606 Sanchez Street in San Francisco a few days back when people could see a large, fuchsia “F*CK MORMONS” banner from all around. While some caution against starting a holy war, others aren’t as circumspect.

The whole affair is still the talk of the town.

But lo, the offending message got taken down lickedy-split post-haste, even on a quasi holiday. Here’s the same scene from this afternoon: 

See? The houseboat house is now message-free. Credit for getting the sign down might go to Michael Thomas, a blogfather who seems to have a lot of pull in the area.

[UPDATE: Joe Vazquez burns the shoe leather and basically confirms the above here, but he also garners a flurry of quotes from the engineer in question.]

On to new bidness, the next big rally. They’re calling it the Million Gay March, or something. It should be under sunny skies, regardless.
