The End of California

Tuesday, June 6th, 2017

Way out there in the Richmond District:

See? California END. A DEAD END, actually:

And best of all, you can visit these steps on the 80th block of California without risking a yet another car break-in ala the 16th Avenue Tiled Steps in the nearby Sunset…

I myself have no beef with Tiny Lie Berries, but some do.

THEORY: If a Corporation Illegally Markets on the Sidewalks of Frisco, It Will be Coerced Into Buying SFMTA MUNI Bus Ads

Thursday, May 25th, 2017

So here’s the theory. Say your marketing people go hog-wild with the chalk ads on the Streets of San Francisco, like this:

So then somebody calls 311 or somebody else posts a photo on the Twitter and then an investigator at the City Attorney’s Office takes a look at things and then the people at Parlophone / Warner Bros. get a jingle and then somehow things get smoothed over by the Brothers Warner or somebody else making at buy at the SFMTA MUNI for some hastily-created and more or less useless ads such as:

Cf. the Blue Wolf at a Dream Force about 1.5 years ago:

And then these hastily-created and more or less useless ads started to appear:

Just a theory, man.

And here’s the thing about chalk. You can’t scrub it off your car tires to avoid a citation and you can’t scuff into Frisco’s sidewalks, I’m srsly. What’s that, UBER, Microsoft, Verizon, et al, it’s “only temporary?” Well, yeah, sure, that’s what I’m talking about, it’s agin the rules, temporary or not.

Our Historic Hibernia Bank Now has Three (3!) Fences to Protect Itself from the Twitterloin Milieu

Thursday, May 25th, 2017

Just count them, Gentle Reader:

And look, somebody is actually going in/out – a rare sighting.

Back in the ’90s, my buds would buy bad weed on these very steps, but that was before this area became known as the Thieves Market. (And my other buds living in a nearby dorm would grow their own buds with powerful grow lamps in tiny closets because 1) Electricity was unmetered by the school so it was free (no additional cost to use all the juice you wanted) and 2) Electricity was unmetered so there was no way PG&E / the popo could detect your outrageous use of juice, you know, the increase. Ah mem’ries.))

Anyway, this place only needed one fence back then…

Mayor Ed Lee’s Under-the-I-80 Tent City 2017 Looks A LOT Like His Under-the-I-80 Tent City 2015-2016

Tuesday, May 23rd, 2017

Actually, it looks exactly the same, except there’s less of it.

2017:

It all started with preparations for Super Bowl L:

“They are going to have to leave,” Lee said of those sleeping along the city’s Embarcadero.

Tree Mail: Major Cell Phone Service Providers Use a Giant Eucalyptus as a Temporary Utility Pole – Entmoot Expected

Thursday, May 18th, 2017

So our downsized and somewhat defunned Bay to Breakers 2017 is a coming this weekend so that means that Frisco’s annual street party will tax the bandwidth of Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint, so some of those suspects must be responsible for this temporary installation, which will allow all the partiers to get emails and texts and, IDK broadcast live or whatever the kids are into these days.

I’ve never seen this kind of tree-as-utility-pole setup, in all my years.

I’ll tell you, Certain People about town will NOT like seeing this.

I’ll get you started:

Ey yo the government is lies, son
