Putting the Historic F-Streetcar Line Back Together, One Overhead Wire at a Time

Tuesday, August 4th, 2009

Hours after yesterday’s collision and brouhaha in the Castro involving two historic F-Line streetcars (making up the bread part of an SUV sandwich), MUNI workers were still on the job about a half-mile away near the Duboce Yard in the back of the Church Street Safeway.

In technical terms, them wires up there done fell down. So the crew of an awesome yellow truck (with a scissors lift in the middle) came along and started winching things back together high above Market Street, with a quickness. Hurray!

“2 Girls, 1 Sub” Ad from Quiznos vs. “2 Girls, 1 Queen” Blog from San Francisco

Tuesday, May 19th, 2009

Which entity is doing a better job exploiting the “2 ____, 1 ____” Internet meme – is it this shocking new ad from Quiznos or is it the new 415-based collaboration “2 Girls, 1 Queen”?

First up is the sandwich ad. It’s appalling. It seems to grow more appalling upon each successive viewing, particularly so in high-rez, full-screen mode. SFW but you should probably be working at work anyway, right? So choose wisely.  

Compare that with 2 Girls, 1 Queen from Elaine Santore, Aimee Ellis, and Marqus Fontenot:

“Welcome to 2 Girls, 1 Queen!

2 Girls, 1 Queen is a collaboration between former Fog City Journal columnist and hair accessories designer Elaine Santore, SF native, dancer, organizer and political consultant Aimee Ellis and Our Queen, Marqus Fontenot.

We’re launching 2 Girls, 1 Queen (not to be confused with a certain graphic viral video!) because we wanted to create a media platform for young, emerging artists involved in dance, fashion, political activism, music, civil rights, GLBT culture, social networking, philanthropy, entertainment and comedy.

Tough economic times call for a refocus of priorities to art, culture, and charity work. We love San Francisco and want to bring you content representing everything unique to our fair city and its past, present and future.

In the coming weeks, we will be posting information about appearances, videos, projects, events, and individual bios of our team. Consider this blog a small taste of things to come.

We hope you’ll join us!

xoxo,

Elaine Santore

Aimee Ellis

Marqus Fontenot”

It’s a tie! Both have exploited the “2 ____, 1 ____” Internet meme equally well.

Carry on.
