Word on the Street, Outer Avenues Edition: “LEAVE MY CITY, HIPSTER SCUM!” – Pretty Harsh for the Middle Richmond

Friday, September 5th, 2014

It would take me a long time to find this billboard again, as I rely on street signs to tell me which Avenue I’m on* after I’ve crossed the city limits and entered SF County. (Anyway, it’s near this place - but is it the Inner Richmond or the Middle Richmond? I just can’t tell.)

I sense a little friction.

“I beg of you, Monsieur, watch yourself.  Be on guard.  This place is full of hipsters, hipsters everywhere, everywhere.” –The Dark European

*I suppose there are people out there that you could blindfold and then release at some random place in the Richmond District and then they’d know their exact location based upon sounds, wind patterns, smells, etc. You know, ppl with Local Knowledge. I’m not one of those people (even though I was very close to being redistricted into District One a few years back, oh well).

Thursday, August 14th, 2014

[UPDATE: A Berkeley resident who's practically become a member of the Willie Brown / Ed Lee administration in San Francisco calls the Tenderloin the "Uptown Tenderloin" for some reason. Check it out here.]

Bro was fast – too fast for me.

But rest assured he was the one who scribbled the white markings on this drainpipe in the 94102:

What does it mean? What message does this misunderstood urban street yoot mean to convey?

I know not.

“So Best Place To Live” – PARKMERCED Battles the NEMA “New Market” Building for Stupid Marketing Catch Phrases

Thursday, July 31st, 2014

IMO, Parkmerced’s #sobestplacetolive rivals NEMA’s nonsensical “AMENITIES, NOT ENEMIES” slogan.

NEMA has many more catchphrases, so Parkmerced will have to do a lot of work to catch up:

Ashton Kutcher and that Horrible San Francisco-Based PopChips Company Make the 2012 Fineman PR Blunder List

Monday, December 17th, 2012

All the deets are right here, at FinemanPR.

And there’s a little background on this after the jump.

Ashton, you’re not funny – try something else.

Ashton, your entourage (and also all the Pop Chips people) were afraid to tell you that your skits were not even remotely entertaining. What else didn’t they / don’t they tell you?

Oh, and the reviews are in:

God, Popchips are awful. The flavors suck.”

Popchips SUCK! I can believe I let you weiners influence me into buying a bag of that collossal garbage.”

Hey Park and Rec! You’re Losing the McKinley Statue Graffiti Battle Again, Just So You Know – Long Term Plan?

Wednesday, August 15th, 2012

I thought you all were on top of this sitch.

What’s your long-term plan, DPR? Oh, I know, give you all more money. But if that’s not going to happen, what if we just take this whole statue thing out? Would you like that DPR?

Anyway, I think KKKatie is still in the hoosegow, but SFNOB(?) and cat-face have taken over the reigns…

Well, It Appears That Rec and Park is Getting the Upper Hand Against Graffiti on the McKinley Statue

Thursday, June 28th, 2012

It goes back and forth, but lately, RPD has been in the game.

(Perhaps local real estate interests have the ear of the powers that be these days.)

Here’s what 2011, 2010, 2010, and 2010 looked like.
