But What’s The Rent? – A 65 Square-Foot Studio Trailer Gets Parked on Market, to “Activate” the “Street Scene”

Friday, July 10th, 2015

This is what it looks like:


Sam Whiting explains here in the San Francisco Chronicle:

Art studio on wheels moves down Market Street

Mmmm, no comments? Perhaps this attempt at a paywall is working too well.

But all right, here’s the SFGate version – surely the rabble will chirp up with comments like, “Well, what’s the rent?” Or maybe, “Smallest Studio in the Twitterloin, 0 bdrms, o bths, reclaimed wood?” 

Art studio on wheels moves down Market Street

Nope. Just one comment. This is the least amount of NEMA-mocking I’ve ever seen, when the topic of the NEMA is raised:

“So, if Studio One were to break down, would it be NEMA-towed?”

Get it? Nematode – cause like “worms,” right? (Oh, I don’t get it, oh well.)

Hey, speaking of NeMA, there’s still no rent control there, so giant rent hikes are coming your way. It will happen like this:

“We looked at what we’re charging for new rents and what the rent trends are in the market. We came up with the following renewal offer by lease terms…”

And then BAM! You get hit with a 24% (or whatever) rent increase (on top of an already high rent) after just one year. Speaking of which, here’s what one Yelper recently had to say about the NEMA. So many details!

I’ll tell you, lots of SF newcomers move into buildings without knowing that rent control won’t apply to them. And they don’t know the first thing about rental deposit refunds until they hit for charges that they don’t have to pay and that they shouldn’t pay. IMO.

And I’ll tell you, I don’t work for SFGov, so it’s not my job to “activate” the “New Market” “Streetscape” with umpty-up art displays. IMO. SFGov should focus on the basics.

San Francisco Catches Antman Fever: “Marvel’s Ant-Man – Trailer 1” – Filmed On Location, Sort Of, Last Year

Wednesday, April 15th, 2015

Oh, now I get it – San Francisco-based Ant-Man, he’s just a little guy!

Some of the the time, anyway:

Boy, this looks like it’s the start of an extremely generic super-hero series.

But prove me wrong, Marvel.

Prove me wrong.

Here It Is, the First “Full Look” at Marvel’s Ant-Man, Shot in Town Last Year – Can’t See Much of Frisco In It – Release Date is July 17th

Friday, April 10th, 2015

This is what all that fuss was about in the 94117 last year:

Principal photography began on August 18, 2014 in San Francisco, with Russell Carpenter serving as cinematographer.[16] Scenes were scheduled to be shot in the Tenderloin neighborhood and Buena Vista Park.[103]

And then there’s this:

Tuesday, December 2nd, 2014

Here’s a Club Sportiva delivery back in the day, on Market Street:


An “experience beyond ownership,” whatever that meant.

Now here’s another on 19th Avenue, just recently:

So what, your wife spends $1000-something bucks to have two bros deliver a Lambo to your office on a Friday afternoon and then you’ll be a big macher for the weekend?

I’ll tell you, this business makes no sense in Frisco.

James Franco and Heather Graham Filmed a Movie About the Porn Industry in San Francisco? New Trailer for “ABOUT CHERRY”

Friday, August 17th, 2012

This is news to me.

Apparently, this to-be-released film was 100% Filmed in San Francisco.

Dolores Park!

James Franco, the young San Francisco lawyer (apparently employed, this is Hollywood after all) takes Cherry to the roof of Medjul:

Hey, it’s Dev Patel from Slumdog Millionaire

Whose streets? Our streets! You can’t fake this kind of verite in a Hollywood back lot:

Oh, Cherry crashes her Audi at some point. An official SFPD Harley is in that scene.

And here’s Mel’s Drive In in the background:

And here’s the trailer:
