Excuse Me, Officer? Our Mercedes Benz is Parked in Your Twitterloin Crime Scene – Could You Move Your Cruiser For Us?

Tuesday, November 26th, 2013

You know, just a skosh? ‘Cause the brunch line at farmerbrown is just too long for us today – we need to motor.

Gathering evidence at a crime scene in Mayor Ed Lee’s Twitterloin Open-Air Halfway House and Stolen IPhone Emporium:

There was yellow tape all over the place, two scenes on Market and two on Turk. At first I thought it could have been a MDK, but I never heard anything about it…

The Fantasies of Randy Shaw – Why Does His Non-Profit Have a $90 Million Budget? Is the Twitterloin Now Affordable?

Tuesday, June 11th, 2013

Here’s the promise, from Randy Shaw‘s “Uptown Tenderloin” initiative:

The neighborhood is now being transformed into an exciting and desirable area where restaurants, theaters and other small businesses prosper, and low-income people of diverse ethnicities can still afford to live.”

And here’s the reality:

Mind you, these are studios in the high-crime Tenderloin area.

Does anyone think that “low-income people” of any ethnicity can “still afford to live” in the Tenderloin?

An Illustrated Guide to the YouTube Viral Video “When trannys attack! Tenderloin craziness!” – What’s Marke B’s Deal?

Wednesday, February 13th, 2013

Not sure what Marke Bieschke’s deal is here.

‘Cause this is an arresting video, trannies or no. (Oh let’s run a search here - only 1600 hits on Google when you look for the words Marke and tranny in the same article at SFBG.com? Mmmm…)

But let’s take a look at the video, d’accord? D’accord.

Five foot nothing, barefoot, and wearing white PJ’s in Randy Shaw’s corrupt greater Uptown Tenderloin Twitterloin area – she has the fight in her but she lacks the stuff she needs, you know, like reach:

So she spent most of this squabble caught by her hair, oh well:

Well, at least he didn’t Break My Window to get the purse out of this aging BMW:

After you see your gf’s purse disappear into Randy Shaw’s corrupt Uptown Tenderloin, all you can do is point as the perp flees. (Is that a moose tattoo on his now naked torso?)

The purse snatching definitely led to a brief cessation of hostilities:

And the, in the end, a swift sucker punch, you know, to say good-bye:

Just Another Day in Randy Shaw’s “Uptown Tenderloin” in the Twitterloin – Video: “When trannys attack! Tenderloin craziness!”

Monday, February 11th, 2013

The dreams of Randy Shaw:

By the summer of 2008, going “uptown” in San Francisco will mean heading to the Tenderloin

Now here’s the reality of the winter of 2013, with two people going “uptown” on each other, via Bluoz:

Oh Randy, will you ever win, you know, with the hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars given to you over the years?

Stand and Deliver: A 30-Second Ricky Ricardo-Style Fusillade En Espanol Late Night in the Corrupt Twitterloin

Or Portuguese, one or the other.

The dude who was sauntering away made it about 100 feet before giving in to the urge to glance back:

So it goes in Randy Shaw’s “Uptown” Tenderloin / Corrupt Twitterloin area.

Mid-Market Renaissance: INSANE CLOWN POSSE, CRAZY HORSE GENTLEMEN’S CLUB

As seen in 2011:

And after your visit to one of these establishments, feel free to buy a stolen iPhone from a friendly gentleman on the corner. Cash only, please.

And then at end of your night, ride home on a freshly stolen bike* you just bought for $20!

*As always, Bianchis Cost Extra, particularly ones with the firetruckish aqua green** paintjob. That’s the First Rule of Mid Market.

** Where I’m from, firetrucks were shades of green,  for some reason…

Is There a Big “Run Ed Run” Rally for Mayor Ed Lee Scheduled for the Steps of City Hall This Monday, August 1, 2011?

Saturday, July 30th, 2011

[UPDATE 8-1-2011: As expected, the very same post that got put up and taken down Saturday AM, is now back in all its glory. How does little old Randy Shaw know way in advance when rallies will take place and how "large" they will be? Hey, is Randy Shaw a journalist? Okay, hold that thought. Now, is Willie Brown a journalist? Is your answer the same for both questions? Does Truth dance, does Truth sing?]

Sure looks as if a big “Run Ed Run” Rally for Mayor Ed Lee is scheduled for the steps of City Hall on Monday, August 1, 2011 at noon.

This is news to me, or at least it was until today’s BeyondChron post got taken down.

Seems as if City-subsidized “journalist” Randy Shaw jumped the gun this AM:

Oops.

TL Update: Is Leavenworth and Golden Gate a “Drug-Free School Zone” or a School-Free Drug Zone?

Tuesday, June 7th, 2011

The sign that you can see in front of the Big Boy Market (aka Niño Grande with the “e” in a different font, showing that it was forgotten about, initially) indicates the former, but my eyes, after witnessing zero schools and mad drug dealers shouting, “Five-oh, five-oh,” well my eyes say the latter.

But why don’t you drop by to say hi and then judge for yourself. After all, this part of the unreconstructed Uptown Tenderloin Crime District is rated a perfect 100 by Walk Score. It’s a Walker’s Paradise, they say. (But IRL, it’s not – you should totally stay out this part of the TL, IMO.)

‘Til next time, Niño Grande.


Pike Formation: A Gaggle of Germans Gather in the Twitterloin in Preparation for Entering the Tenderloin Proper

Wednesday, April 27th, 2011

These tightly-packed German tourists appeared to be set to enter the gritty Tenderloin from the apparent safety of Mid-Market yesterday evening.

The only words from the tour leader I understood were “Turk Street” and, at the end, “It’s go time.”

Looking up Jones Street straight into the teeth of the ‘Loin. Mmmm, gritty:

Don’t know if this has anything to do with last year’s nearby killing of Mechthild Schröer or if it’s favella tourism or what.

Never encountered anything like this before…

When You Visit San Francisco, Don’t Forget to Bring Your Dune Buggy – Tow It All Over Town, Why Not?

Some art students should park a rig like this overnight on Turk in the “Uptown” Tenderloin (“Near Union Square!”) with a video camera fixed on it. You know, just to see what would happen to the buggy. Good times…
