Why Does SFMTA MUNI DPT Put “ELECTRIC POWERED” Stickers on Its Diesel-Powered Buses?

Thursday, August 8th, 2013

It’s a simple question.

Now actually, the SFMTA does have electric buses.

But those vehicles don’t have ”ELECTRIC POWERED” stickers.

The only MUNI vehicles with ”ELECTRIC POWERED” on the side are diesels

Isn’t it ironic?

Dont’cha think?

Hey! Speaking of MUNI and diesel, the term “Biodiesel” is a lie the way the SFMTA uses it.

How about that?

Hey! Speaking of MUNI and petroleum products, which has spilled more into San Francisco Bay – the famous oil-spilling Cosco Busan or MUNI? 

Can you guess? It’s MUNI.

In closing, MUNI sucks.

Hachi Machi, It’s Time for Bocce! Rec and Park Rolls Out New Grass on Site of Historic OccupySF 2011 in JHP

Friday, January 6th, 2012

You see, the Occupiers put their tents on the bocce court grass last year. So that killed the turf.

This was the scene yesterday as the new turf came in:

All that’s left to do is clean up the Bradley Manning stickers and then, once again, San Francisco’s at-risk Rich White People will have a place to keep busy and stay out of trouble.

You know, there was talk of putting in a playground here, you know, for kids, but RWP didn’t like that idea so much.

Oh well.

Stickers on the Bocce Ball Courts are All That’s Left of OccupySF: “MAKE BANKS PAY” Plus “Free Bradley Manning”

Are people really going to play bocce here, on the site of OccupySF, again?

Embarcadero Center Employees are Now Cleaning Up the Justin Herman Plaza Bocce Ball Courts? Stickers Be Gone

Thursday, December 29th, 2011

This was the scene yesterday, with a man trying to remove pro-OccupySF stickers from the railing installed for the bocce courts recently installed for and by the rich, WASPy one-percent.*

The cops who have been patrolling this area for months were nowhere to be seen at this particular moment yesterday.

There are three stickers visible here. They have words like “war” and “cops” on them. The uniform badge says “Embarcadero Center Janitorial.”

Apparently, Embarcadero Center / the Hyatt Regency Embarcadero Hotel have become clubhouses of sorts for anti-Occupy forces. Per the Counterpunch:

 “On two separate occasions, I saw cops assembled in the Hyatt and a couple of other nearby hotels. I was sent by our General Assembly to do recon so I buttoned my shirt up, took off my bandana and put on my best English accent.

“Walking with a confident stride toward the Hyatt, wary security and bellhops opened the door for me. I found the cops relaxing in a conference room.”

When oh when will the one-percent reoccupy this part of Justin Herman Plaza?

*This includes former Mayor Gavin Newsom, also a rich, WASPy member of the 1%. For some reason, a small, Eurocentric lawn sport project was Job One for him, back in the day.

ROCKSTAR ENGERGY DRINK Pickup Truck Driver Drives As If He’s Had Too Much Red Bull

Wednesday, October 19th, 2011

You know, like he’s had too much caffeine or taurine or whathaveyou.

See?

You can’t just start a right on red and then hope it all works out, oh no. Cause then what happens is that peds will go around the crosswalk behind you. Thusly:

So, duuuuuuude, hey dude, lay off the Red Bull.

Here’s another shot, with more contrast. It shows the classy URL of the Rockstar. See? By the time ROCKST★R Founder Russell Goldencloud Weiner (son of right-wing radio host Michael Savage!) hopped aboard the energy drink train, www.RockStar.com was already taken. So he added the number 69 as a differentiator for the URL.

Stay classy, ROCKST★R!

To review:

1. Slow down, Rockstar driver! You’ll give yourself a heart attack;

2. Stay classy, Rockstar founder! Heh, “69″ heh. You so crazy!

Boy, This NBC Bay Area KNTV News Van is Just Begging Not to Be Vandalized – Yay Ecologic! Yay SF Giants!

Tuesday, July 19th, 2011

Let me tell you, San Francisco News stations have learned that it just doesn’t pay to advertise their names on the sides of vans, you know, because that’s just making them a target for mischief, right?

They have differing policies on just how incognito they are, but this is typical. You can’t get more incognito than that.

Comes now, straight outta San Jose, KNTV-TV, our NBC affiliate for the Bay Area. See?

Now, I just happened to have an 8oz Krylon Premium Metallic Gold Foil #1050 in my rucksack on this night and I was all set to go to town, you know, to express myself, but then I noticed the Ecologic and Giants stickers.

And I couldn’t do it, man, I just couldn’t mess with the Giants AND the Ecologic (whatever the Hell that is). My Message would have been clouded, dig?

Well played, NBCBAYAREA.

Life was simpler back in the day, non?

Dennis Herrera Throws Down: LA-Based Davis Elen Ad Firm Forced to Pay $45K for Zygna “Mafia Wars” Sidewalk Vandalism

Friday, November 12th, 2010

Well, the whole Zygna “Mafia Wars” sidewalk graffiti imbroglio is over. Get the deets below.

Up next, Microsoft’s chalked-on Windows Phone ads?

San Francisco’s Happy Warrior, DJH:

“Herrera settles illicit guerilla marketing case with Davis Elen Advertising. Ad firm will pay $45,000 for vandalizing S.F. sidewalks, had previously removed some 4,000 ‘Mafia Wars’ decals

SAN FRANCISCO (Nov. 12, 2010) — City Attorney Dennis Herrera today announced a settlement agreement with Davis Elen Advertising over an illicit guerilla marketing campaign that the firm employed in August to promote a popular social media game for one of its clients.  Under terms of the agreement signed by the City Attorney’s Office today, Davis Elen Advertising will pay the City $45,000.  The Los Angeles-based ad agency had previously remedied its vandalism to San Francisco sidewalks after it was contacted by the Department of Public Works and City Attorney’s Office, and informed of the City’s intention to pursue legal action.

In August — in the wake of a widespread public outcry and several news accounts about the sudden appearance of thousands of dollar-like stickers defacing neighborhood sidewalks — Davis Elen Advertising issued a statement conceding that its marketers “led a series of street marketing activities throughout the City of San Francisco,” and that they “take full responsibility for the program.”  The company hired a subcontractor to vandalize 75 locations throughout San Francisco by gluing some 4,000 decals onto public sidewalks to promote the online game, “Mafia Wars” — unbeknownst to Zynga, the San Francisco-based social media gaming company for which Davis Elen was working.  The guerilla marketing tactic, which is a clear violation of state and local law, required Department of Public Works crews to use special steam cleaning equipment to remove the decals from vandalized sites.  But the City halted its own cleanup efforts when Davis Elen and its subcontractor agreed to remove the decals at their own expense, after being informed of the City’s resolve to seek legal remedies for the actionable tactics.  As a result, total costs to the City were limited to under $2,000.

“The so-called ‘guerilla marketers’ who deface public property in San Francisco may think they’re being clever, but they’re nothing more than lawless vandals-for-hire,” said Herrera.  “Graffiti vandalism is illegal, and when it’s done as corporate advertising, it’s also actionable as an unlawful business practice.  We take these violations seriously, and I’ll continue to pursue them aggressively to make sure there’s no profit motive for defacing our neighborhoods.  I’m very grateful to Zynga for its good corporate citizenship in working with us to identify the culprits, and I’m glad that Davis Elen Advertising accepted responsibility for its wrongdoing.  I’m also thankful to the Department of Public Works for their efforts, and to the many San Franciscans who took the time to call 311 to report these acts of vandalism.”

Ten-Foot Tall Cyclone Fence Keeps the Great Buddha of Civic Center Safe from Giants Fans and Vandalizers

Thank Gaia that Rec and Park is keeping our Giant Buddha safe from the madding crowd today:

See the fence? It should come down by tomorrow, November 4th, after the crowd has left:
