Hey, does this ride have a fuel tank? Yes it do. 9.3 gallons worth.

Hey, does this ride have a tailpipe? Yes it do again. But it’s hidden away, the better to fool you.

Does the artist what tagged this car know all this?

IDTS!

Anyway, if this ride is an “EV,” then so is craig Newmark’s old-school ’99 Prius, just saying…

OMG, It’s Republican Week at the Commonwealth Club: P.J. O’Rourke, Tom Perkins, and Amy Chua & Feb 12-14

Monday, February 10th, 2014

Your Commonwealth Club has gone stark raving mad for the Grand Old Party this week!

Check it here are the top three joints that the CC is promoting right now:

PJ O’Rourkewas the original Republican Party Reptile.

And Tom Perkins, he’s registered, baby. (NB: Nobody gives a flying foxtrot about your golf-delta watch, Tom Perkins. So you shouldn’t ever show it to people without them asking about it first.)

And Tiger Mother Amy Chua* et vir,** well, they sure sound Republican.

But rest assured, the following week features Barbara Boxer and other Dems flogging their books and causes and whatnot, so everything’ll be back to normal soon ‘nough.

Hurray!

This concludes OMG, It’s Republican Week at the Commonwealth Club: P.J. O’Rourke, Tom Perkins, and Amy Chua & Jed Rubenfeld Feb 12-14.

*”Provocative and profound, Chua and Rubenfeld will transform the way we think about success and achievement.” Uh, nope!

**Namely, Tiger Mother Baby Daddy (TMBD) Jed Rubenfeld. Who’s he? Let’s check his Wiki – “Personal life: Rubenfeld is Jewish.” OK then.

Does the San Francisco Unified School District Have an “ADA Tiger Team?” Yes, Here’s Its Big Old Truck

Thursday, January 2nd, 2014

Let’s review:

tiger team is a group of experts assigned to investigate and/or solve technical or systemic problems. A 1964 paper defined the term as “a team of undomesticated and uninhibited technical specialists, selected for their experience, energy, and imagination, and assigned to track down relentlessly every possible source of failure in a spacecraft subsystem.”

So our school district employees drive around the 415 to put the beat down on noncompliant handicapped ramps and whatnot?

Yes, yes they do.

See?

But why doesn’t the van have tiger stripes painted on the side? This seems like a missed opportunity…

SamSingerWatch: Did “Three Men” Really “Attack” Tatiana the Tiger at the San Francisco Zoo?

Tuesday, May 3rd, 2011

Here’s the latest from “Master of Disaster” PR Man Sam Singer:

“S.F. Zoo gets Martha the tiger to replace Tiger Shot after attacked by 3 Men Christmas 3 years ago”

Uh, en realidad, we don’t actually know that “3 Men” “attacked” that tiger, do we? Hey, what about the minor who died? He was less than 18, right? Oh, and you’re saying he attacked the tiger along with brothers Dhaliwal, you know that for a fact that all three of them did that, huh? You and the zoo have videotape you’ve been sitting on all these years, maybe…

Is this kind of thing what pays your mortgage, Sam?

Cheetah, Na’vi, Tiger, Cheetah: The O’Farrell Theatre is “Where the Wild Girls Are” in Our Crime-Ridden Tenderloin

Thursday, March 3rd, 2011

This joint used to be called Mitchell Brothers O’Farrell Theatre, and then, sadly, Mitchell Brother O’Farrell Theatre.

But now, it’s plain old O’Farrell Theatre, I guess, in the same old part of the crime-ridden Uptown Tenderloin.

Now check it – the marquis has changed a bit over the years as well:

I’ve never been, but Stephy S. from L.A., well, she has. Enjoy:

“I hate you O’Farrell Theatre. I hate you because all I ever wanted to do was love you and you wouldn’t let me…”

The rest of her story

Anyway, let’s agree to modify the list slightly:

Cheetah, Na’vi, Tiger, Blue Cheetah

There we go. That’s the ticket.

2011 San Francisco Chinese New Year’s Parade a Huge Success, Despite the Rain – Photos From David Yu

Monday, February 21st, 2011

(My Canon 1D Mark Whatever SLR died an early death at 140,000 clicks* possibly due to the fact that I wasn’t ascared of a little (or a lot) of rain. Nowadays I’m def. skittish, but no matter,) you can always count on famous photographer David Yu to be on the scene rain or dry.

As he was last Saturday night in Chinatown and North Beach and SoMA and the Financh and all over.

Check out his gallery of Year of the Rabbit festivities, why not?

Bunnies!

David Yu

Whoahhh Bundy!

SuperLotto? No thanks! But SuperLotto PLUS? Sounds intriguing…

And look who else was there – it’s your newly-minted Supervisor Malia Cohen:

(Yowser)

And your just-as-newly-minted Mayor Edwin Lee in the official San Francisco staff car, formerly used by General Burkhalter:

See you next year! (In scary, scary 2012, the year of the Dragon.)

*200,000 was the expected number of clicks I believe I was owed. ($300 minimum for a new shutter.) OTOH, my 5D Mark I has probably already exceeded its expected shutter life so I s’pose I shouldn’t complain too much. Living on borrowed time tho.
