…Has It All
The stuff we sell is just the best
Passing all consumer test
Days of heaven nights of sin
Voodoo stick and sharks fin
When all around you seems like hell
Just one sip will make you well
Multipurpose in a jar
If you ain’t ill it’ll fix your car
In days of yore for all bad feelings
Washing socks and stripping ceilings
Nowadays its used medicinally
For all known human malady
It was really vile weather
When we got to tarred and feathered
You could hear the six guns sound
As they chased us out of town
Guaranteed don’t you know
You’ll get a no!
It’s the one and only medicine show
It’s Rocketboat! Doing donuts on the water, as it is wont to do
Rocketboat! Rocketboat! Rocketboat!
Kicking a little sand in the base of the Echo Tower of the San Francisco Oakland Bay Bridge:
And now, cleverly, Rocketboat sneaks up on Delta Tower in the shadow of the roadbed:
And then, some more donuts:
And here are some shots of Rocketboat from back in the aughts:
See them here. (I guess RB is red at the front and back and that fades to orange on the sides.)
Someday, I’ll ride you, Rocketboat.
How would you water this wobbly putting green high up near Turtle Hill / Grand View Park? Do you wait for the rain of Yosemite to accumulate and then make its way through hundreds of miles of the Hetch Hetchy Aqueduct to get to Frisco and then have somebody pump it up to your house so that you can waste “America’s Best Drinking Water” for your own suburban-style glorification?
I think that’s the system, man.
But brown is the new green, man.
Here you go:
“When Vaillancourt designed the fountain, the Embarcadero Freeway or Interstate 480, was still in existence along Market Street and the Embarcadero. The fountain was designed with the freeway environment in mind…”
Kind of like this:
(Of course this was back when Frisco had cheap water and cheap power.)
But now the freeway is gone.
So what do we need this Vaillancourt Fountain thing anymore for anyway?
It’s not worth powering the water pumps these days, so that’s one good thing.
But why do we still have this monstrosity???
I LOL’ed when I saw this, as seen on The Donald’s aging corporate jet, the one that used be a low-cost Mexican airliner, from a now-bankrupt airline:
So, when you’re on Air Trump One, this is supposed to be your souvenir, as if being on ATO equates to being on Air Force One
