Golden Gate Park Photo Shoot: Authorized or Not? You Make The Call

Wednesday, July 9th, 2014

I can’t tell with this one.

I don’t think these people have the resources to deal with the all-demanding Rec and Park Dept, but it’s pretty brazen to be holding huge reflectors and shades as the Rangers drive back and forth, so I don’t know:

In any event, Golden Gate Park is a great place for a photo shoot, authorized or not…

Oh, So Gannett Co. Inc’s “The Bold Italic” Subsidiary is Collecting “Photo Don’ts?” Well Here’s One, from TBI Itself

Friday, January 17th, 2014

For example, here’s what part of Potrero Hill looks like, more or less, IRL:

And here’s what the TBI published:

You see, the colors have been turned up to 11 – note the Chernobyl-esque glowing yellow trees, for example.

More deets here.

So, add that to your list of photo don’ts, TBI.

Forget About the Google Bus, ‘Cause the “Soogle Bus” is Almost as Good! But Don’t Read the Racist Yelp Reviews

Wednesday, July 25th, 2012

Here it is, as promised, the Soogle Bus:

But uh oh, here’s what you’ll find these days on the Yelp:

“I’ve never even been on one of their buses, but I observed one of their drivers this evening on Hawthorne Street driving aggressively, honking the horn continuously at the car in front of him and overall behaving like a jerk.

“Although the shuttle and driver were booked for 8 hours, the shuttle driver refused to drive at points of the evening! At the end of the night, the driver tried to ask for more money than was agreed upon based on an old quote the company had given. I had to pull out my laptop to show him the email that his boss had sent me to prove that I did not need to pay him more.”

“Horrible.  This is NOT a real travel/ tour service. They constantly ask for more money and CASH. They are disrespectful and RUDE. They throw litter around, and stand around and smoke. They speak almost no English.”

And that doesn’t include the reviews what were taken down or the ones currently on the “filtered” page.

Poor Soogle!
