He continues:

“Help us have four more years of this. Vote for Randy Shaw Jane Kim for District 6 Supervisor in San Francisco.”

Bro was ON when he made this one

Thx, badmonkey0001.

So many requirements!

Arrow pointing the direction from the sign to the district
White/grey text on a blue field with red accents (colors came from the spec if I remember)
Images of landmarks and/or features of the district on the left side of the sign
Name of the district written in US English with a native translation below
Signmakers marks in the lower right within the blue field
Relative dimensions (aspect ratio)
Location of mounting holes
Pattern and type of reflective material (which I imitated)
A border around the sign with a certain width (the grey border)

Rarely Seen: A Tagger Artist and His Work, Just Moments After Its Creation in the “Uptown” Tenderloin

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.

Finally, a Map of the “Uptown” Tenderloin That Makes Sense: Crack Cocaine Arrest Map from Doug McCune Shows the Borders

Monday, August 11th, 2014

Here it is:

A decade of data showing where people get arrested selling crack cocaine in SF”

The long street on the left side is Van Ness, the big diagonal is Market and the part shooting off down and to the right is 6th Street.

Anyway, this is what people mean when they refer to the Tenderloin:

I can’t think of a thing that this map is missing.

What an excellent map!

Twitterloin Update: AVA Building Claims to be “Awesome,” Warns Homeless About Leaving Stuff Out Front – “Not Cool,” Bro!

Wednesday, May 14th, 2014

Civic Center Mike tells the story of this photo he took on 9th Street in the Twitterloin tax-free enterprise zone

Clicking to expand is cool, so do it. 

This place might look good on the inside, but it’s in a high-crime area, oh well.

Oh AVA Building, will you ever win?

Berkeley Contractor Randy Shaw’s Adoration for His Paymaster Has Gone Over the Moon – How Can Anyone Take Him Seriously?

Thursday, May 8th, 2014

Let’s see here, who in San Francisco takes Randy Shaw seriously?

1. CW Nevius (Maybe not a few years back, but these days, certainly)

2. San Francisco Magazine (Maybe not a few years back, but these days, certainly)

I think that’s it. (Nobody in SFGov takes him seriously, not really.)

Now here’s the latest:

And here’s part of it:

“Lee’s ‘Neptune Shot’ (a planet far further from earth than the moon) is off to a good start.”

So, let’s get this straight. Being appointed Mayor of San Francisco for nine years (effectively), by breaking a promise about being only an “interim Mayor,” is something similar, in some way, to sending a manned mission to planet Neptune, an ice giant?

OK fine.

Reader Notes:

Does Randy Shaw think that the moon is a planet? I don’t think so, but I can’t tell for sure.

Is BeyondChron really “The Voice Of The Rest?” No, it’s the voice of a white government contractor who lives in a large house in the Berkeley hills.

Is BeyondChron really the “Best Local Website” per the SFBG? No.

Well then why has that tagline been displayed there for years and years? IDK

Twitter Gets Unwelcomed to the Twitterloin by Kahn & Keville, a Beloved Local Garage

You know Twitter, it’s not too late to pay your taxes under the rules signed into law by Mayor Gavin Newsom in 2004. You know, just put it into SFGov’s General Fund where it belonged in the first place. How much are we talking about here, a $100,000,000 or so? I mean, you left a lot more than that on the table during your recent IPO, right? And then you could amend your federal returns and then you wouldn’t get so much static from the locals. And then you could also do your little charity efforts, you know, in addition to paying your fucking taxes* like everybody else.

JMO.

Corrupt Twitterloin Update: Using a Rubber Duck to Show Off How Wide Your Car Tires Are

Friday, March 7th, 2014

(The funny thing about Twitter is that lots and lots of its employees would prefer having the HQ in northern San Mateo County anyway. Oh well, bygones.)

As seen on Golden Gate Avenue in the 94102:
