THEORY: If a Corporation Illegally Markets on the Sidewalks of Frisco, It Will be Coerced Into Buying SFMTA MUNI Bus Ads

Thursday, May 25th, 2017

So here’s the theory. Say your marketing people go hog-wild with the chalk ads on the Streets of San Francisco, like this:

So then somebody calls 311 or somebody else posts a photo on the Twitter and then an investigator at the City Attorney’s Office takes a look at things and then the people at Parlophone / Warner Bros. get a jingle and then somehow things get smoothed over by the Brothers Warner or somebody else making at buy at the SFMTA MUNI for some hastily-created and more or less useless ads such as:

Cf. the Blue Wolf at a Dream Force about 1.5 years ago:

And then these hastily-created and more or less useless ads started to appear:

Just a theory, man.

And here’s the thing about chalk. You can’t scrub it off your car tires to avoid a citation and you can’t scuff into Frisco’s sidewalks, I’m srsly. What’s that, UBER, Microsoft, Verizon, et al, it’s “only temporary?” Well, yeah, sure, that’s what I’m talking about, it’s agin the rules, temporary or not.

The “Architecturally Significant” Brokedown Palace McDonald’s at Golden Gate and Van Ness is Now Gone – All Gone

Friday, February 24th, 2017

Add this to the list of McD’ses (Pine, Market, Grant, Mission, the list goes on) what have failed in Frisco:

This was the scene yesterday. And this here was from a few days back.

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

Which Sounds Worse: “The Sports Club/LA – San Francisco” or “MIAMI AD SCHOOL, San Francisco?”

Wednesday, October 26th, 2016

The answer of course is “The Sports Club/LA – San Francisco,” which is just crazy, man.*

But this is close:

A: Screw this man, I’m going to ad school.

B: Miami Ad School?

A: Natch, man!

*I’m going to open my own own gym, call it “The Sports Club/Frisco.” And then I’m going to expand in the southland – call the new place “The Sports Club/Frisco – Los Angeles.” That’s the ticket.

Perpendicular Parallel Parking: Sure, “Believe in Yourself,” But Not This Much – When “Leaning In” Goes Too Far

Tuesday, May 31st, 2016

I guess you’re driving north on Van Ness and then you start to turn east on Golden Gate but then you see a sweet sweet empty parking space in front of Yet Another Abandoned McDonalds In Frisco, well, this is what it looked like:

7J7C6480 copy

And then after all the resultant honking, we ended up with this:

7J7C6482 copy

And then I had to turn away – it was just too embarrassing to watch, so I don’t know the conclusion of this vignette.

But c’mon people! You’re allowed to block one lane of traffic whilst parallel parking, but not three.

You’re just not that special…
