You know, like he’s had too much caffeine or taurine or whathaveyou.
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!
1. Slow down, Rockstar driver! You’ll give yourself a heart attack;
2. Stay classy, Rockstar founder! Heh, “69” heh. You so crazy!
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?
You know Shepard Fairey from his Barack Obama Hope posters of last year and of course his related legal troubles from this month, right? (Always remember, when you borrow from others, it’s “fair use” but when others borrow from you, it’s cease and desist time for the infringing “parasites” – inn’t that right, Shepard?)
Anyway, brace yourself for this Thursday when Shepard and our corporate overlords at Levi’s team up for the debut of the “Obey X Collection.” See?
“The highly-collectible Obey x Levi’s® capsule collection will be carried exclusively at select Levi’s® Store locations in New York City, San Francisco, Chicago and Santa Monica and at Levis.com. A limited number of pieces will also be available at www.obeyclothing.com. The collection will be available beginning October 29 and will range in price from $34.50 to $148. To commemorate the launch of the collection, on October 29 Fairey will unveil a series of four new poster designs at a live art installation outside The Levi’s® Store in New York City’s Times Square. Once Fairey completes the installation, he will meet-and-greet event participants while autographing free museum-quality reproductions of his new posters.”
It’ll look like this. Just $37.78 for a grey T-shirt:
But there’s more:
“The series of four limited-edition Shepard Fairey posters will be given away as a free gift, while supplies last, with the purchase of any item from the Obey x Levi’s® collection in the following Levi’s® Store locations: Times Square and Soho in New York City, Union Square in San Francisco, Santa Monica and Chicago. The front side of each of the four double-sided posters features artwork that exists as a stand-alone piece. The reverse side of each poster also includes one piece of a oversized mural image specially designed by Fairey.”
That’s not dirt, it’s paint from all those nights you’ve spent tagging:
“Think & Create” and “Paint and Destroy”:
Is Obey “the new Ed Hardy,” or something? One thing’s for sure kids – quality will be higher and the cost cheaper compared to what Shepard normally offers.
See you at the Union Square Levi’s (300 Post Street) this Thursday!
