If You’re Not Using SFGov Property to Promote Your Business Venture, You’re Missing Out – Here’s Harrison Mills & Clayton Knight of Seattle – ODESZA, ODESZA…

Monday, September 11th, 2017

Here’s our Sunset District as it looked over the weekend. IDK how many of these green utility boxes got hit, but the number could be high based upon what I saw:

One after the other on the (not Los Angeles-related) Sunset Boulevard:

Uh, you can’t do this in Frisco, right?

Seattle’s HOMEGROWN Sandwich Chain OPENING SOON at Troubled 222 Battery

Thursday, December 29th, 2016

That was the windup, now here’s the pitch.

They look almost ready to open at this star-crossed building what’s been shut down for years and years, IIRC.

Read all about it at Eater SF

(And the new bay area locations are not to be confused with HOMEGROWN OAKLAND?)

Oh, the Seattle location has surprisingly low Yelp rating, IMO.

Anyway, this was the scene yesterday with the future “Sandwich Partners” getting training inside:

Haight Update, 2016: “A squawking Seahawks bar in 49ers territory” – Yes, Indeed

Monday, September 12th, 2016

Just as the Tenderloin has Ace’s, for the New Yawk crowd, the Lower Haight has DANNY COYLES, apparently, on Any Given Sunday:

Surprisingly Good Sportship on Polk Street from Royal Liquors: “THANK YOU SEATTLE! BETTER LUCK NEXT TIME”

Wow.

Does it seem that the 49ers are less popular since they left town?

What Percentage of the Drivers of These Cars Use Handicap Placards to Get Free Parking, You Know, Primarily?

Friday, February 6th, 2015

I’m guessing 66%, or 100%.

(If you want to see scenes like this, head to Washington and Davis, just north of the Financh. And for some reason, handicap placard users tend to have brand new cars, and a lot of them have Mercedes-Benz S-Classes…)

7J7C2908 copy

Hey, here’s another question:

What percentage of California physicians have ever been disciplined for signing off  on somebody’s handicap placard application?

The answer is zero percent (0%), in the entire history of Cali.

So that’s why it’s preferable for doctors to just sign your form instead of explaining why s/he doesn’t want to sign your form and, and, you know, piss you off.

You know, I’m in my 40’s, but when I was in my 30’s, my knees felt warm for a couple days. I looked it up and thought, oh so that’s what bursitis is. And people were all no you don’t have bursitis, that’s what plumbers get. And I thought, no, plumbers get chronic bursitis and I got me some acute bursitis. So I took an ibu pill and that was that – I never had this symptom again. Now, Gentle Reader, do you think I could go to a doctor, or a non-doctor, cause the DMV takes the word of pretty much anyone, and say I want a handicap placard for my bursitis condition, and then get a handicap placard, and then park all day all day, for free? I bet I could.

Not that I would.

But I’ll tell you, whenever SFGov gets around to ending this FREE PARKING FIESTA scam, watch them all fall down.

As up in Portland, OR. Hey, you know Portland is a leader in so many things, so guess what they just did up there? That’s right, NO SOUP FOR YOU! And, all of a sudden, most of the handicapped placards went away.

Someday this will happen down here in SF.

Someday.

NBC Spoils Its Own Internet Broadcast: Super Bowl XLIX Shown Time-Delayed, But the Score Ticker is Updated in Real Time

Sunday, February 1st, 2015

[UPDATE: Slate weighs in: NBC’s Super Bowl Live Stream Was Hugely Popular. It Was Also Terrible. By Will Oremus. OhI guess a couple interruptions delayed my feed so I could have pressed a button to catch up and then have had only a 30-second delay. IMO, this NBC live stream was BTN, Better Than Nothing – consider that praise if you want.]

Here’s a screen grab from NBC’s webcast of today’s Super Bowl:

Capturefdfsss copy

So if you had noticed the live score seen at the top of the screen, then you’d have known that the Seattle drive you were watching would end, SPOILER ALERT, in a field goal.

Cord cutting* comes at a price, so very high.

Just saying.

*Believe it or not, my town, the second-largest in the northern half of the state, has no NBC affiliate, so my aging 70 inch Sharp has zero chance of receiving KNTV out of San Joser using my rabbit ears, as I’m on the wrong side of Twin Peaks. Plus, I can’t go satellite as I have no view of the southern sky. And Comcast, well, Comcast is the Devil. Now last year, that was different, that was par-tay time (at least until the end, the very end of the game) at 720p on a decent, non-spoiler network. But this year, meh. Oh well.

Assignment Desk: Q. What was Putin’s Buddy Andrey Melnichenko Doing in SF the Past Week? [A. Nothing Good]

Tuesday, September 9th, 2014

Evil coming at you:

How long would you say this ship is – how about way more than a football field?

It’s so big it takes half a million bucks worth of petroleum to fill up its tanks.

It’s so big it needs a bar pilot to board to guide it out of San Francisco Bay, yesterday evening. See?

rootytootyfreshandPutey

All right, MSM, get up to speed on this recent visit here – just keep reading down.

Who did this guy meet with – corporate and government officials, right? Which ones? Why?

What’s that, what about the Ukraine? Indeed, what about Ukraine?

Hey, speak of the Devil:

Another lawmaker said he had been provided photos of Russian President Vladimir Putin with Andrey Melnichenko, who owns 92 percent of EuroChem’s shares. Putin even made a well-publicized visit to EuroChem’s potash mine in Gremyachinskoye in 2010.”

Hop on it, MSM.

Tracking a Russian James Bond Villain and His Superyacht in San Francisco Waters: Sausalito, Redwood City, What’s Next?

Thursday, September 4th, 2014

Get up to speed on Russian “mathematician” and billionaire Andrey Melnichenko and his floating lair “A” here.

This is a few days back, moored at Sausalito. And then you can see he motored south under the Bay Bridge and the San Mateo Bridge to Redwood Shores:

Capturesfffd

Where will he go next? Follow along right here.

(Let’s hope his arrival won’t be followed by The Big One ala Zorin.)

And let’s remember that Redwood City was where the US military’s very own stealth ship, the Sea Shadow, used to be moored for all those years. You know, along with its floating barge, so-called HMB-1 (Howard Hughes Mining Barge One), except that was just a cover for Project Jennifer, a plan from 40 years ago to lift Soviet sub K-129 up from the ocean floor. I’m srsly, Comrades.

And oh yeah, this yacht has a secret James Bond-esque escape pod, just as on the star-crossed K-278

He’s Ba-aack! The Ugly “Stealth Yacht” of Russian Billionaire Andrey Melnichenko Just Docked Near Redwood City

Wednesday, September 3rd, 2014

Here it is, the superyacht named “A,” as seen a few years back in the waters of Marin County:

And here it is again in 2014, like right now at this very instant, down in Silicon Valley near Redwood Shores or Redwood City or whatever:

assd

And here it was yesterday, in Sausalito again, looks like.

This vessel just fueled up its 200,000(!) gallon tank (that’s more than four times as much as MUNI spilled into San Francisco Bay that one time) to the tune of a half a million dollars up north in Washington State.

So, what are Bro et ux doing down in the Valley?

ASSIGNMENT DESK: Send somebody down there and find out. Talk to his hired goons. Ask him about the James Bond-esque escape pod on the yacht. Ask him about what local companies he’s investing in. You know, that whole routine.
