As seen last week heading toward the Golden Gate Bridge:

But apparently this was changed to “SF Hearts Trump” the past couple of days?

Our Brokedown Palace, a Formerly Architecturally Significant Mcdonald’s, Gets Tagged – But Signs of Life Now

Tuesday, November 8th, 2016

Here’s the scene at Golden Gate and Van Ness, with the vacant McD’s to the left and newly-placed construction trailers to the right. But it turns out that the trailers are just there for the multiyear Van Ness BRT project, which will finish sometime in the 2020’s

Here’s All What’s Left of 1994’s Giant “Gold Mountain” Mural at Romolo Place in North Beach – Graffiti

Thursday, July 21st, 2016

First, the giant mural of Romolo was all like this:

But now it’s all like this – I haven’t been through this way since it got painted over, thusly:

Due to this:

“I’m done with them. That’s why the mural is painted over,” Sherry said. She said that during the 2004 restoration, which took almost a year, she worked on the mural six days a week for almost a year and was only compensated for transportation and lunch. “It was an absolute nightmare,” she said. “All they could pay me was coming out of their poor little pockets, so I accepted it because at the time I could afford to take a lot of time to do this. … So I basically just did the work, and they let it go to hell again.

There was a theory that murals discourage graffiti. I don’t know well that theory worked out…

Bad Dog? – “No, Bad Human” – Graffiti Artist Shames the Errant Dog Owners of the Western Addition’s “Alamo Square Historic District”

Friday, June 10th, 2016

I think leaving dog poo on the sidewalk is just as impermissible as tagging, but sometimes two wrongs make a right?

Anyway, somebody’s fed up with some of the dog owners of the Between Alamo Square And The Projects part of town…

Here’s What Happens When You Advertise on an SFMTA / MUNI Bus Stop Ad – Poor SHINOLA Detroit!

Monday, May 23rd, 2016

This kind of thing, as seen recently on the windswept Geary Transit Corridor…

…has precedents:

You know what I think? I think that sometimes companies pay money to Clear Channel Outdoor so that it will send part of that money to out sad-sack SFMTA and then maybe SFGov / the SFMTA will then look kindlier upon said generous companies. So it’s kind of more like a bribe / kickback / apology than a pure, earnest attempt at advertising.

I could cite examples…

Hey, is That Notorious “Bluewolf” Salesforce DreamForce Chalk Ad Company Making Amends with SFMTA Bus Advertising?

Thursday, October 8th, 2015

IDK.

Here’s your background.

I’ve never seen an ad like this afore:

How long did it take to create, one wonders? About two seconds?

No matter, I’m sure SFGov is starting to think of the bluewolf as a good corporate citizen now…
