The Towman Cometh: The Great Towing of the Western Addition Starts This Saturday Night – Thanks, NIKE!Thursday, October 15th, 2015
IMO, Nike should make sure that these types of signs hit the streets like six days before the annual Nike Womens 13.1-Mile Marketing Effort
(Interesting font there, SFMTA!)
The way things stand now, notice is insufficient.
(The person who will tow your ride Sunday morning will live south of SF, and have bible verses cited on the side of his tow truck, if Past Is Prologue.)
Here’s an interesting contrast. The local is jaywalking on the far side of the intersection, and he’s made it most of the way across, and plus he’s running.
Compare that with the Airbnb-type tourists, who, in this case, were on the near side of the intersection, and had not made it most of the way across when their light turned red and, of course, were not running:
Oh, I have apologized properly yet?
All right, I’ll say “sorry” again.
I couldn’t really tell where it started and where it ended yesterday – all number of blocks were blocked off for one reason or another. Hey, what if Sunday Streets changed the map and just used up a single street? There’s an idea.
Hey now, Airbnb was there, trying to head off Prop F with all its billions:
(I think the logo looks better upside down.)
Here’s what’s going to happen – Prop F is going to pass, and then life will go on, and you’ll still be able to Airbnb, either as a tourist or as a room letter.
And then you’ll look back and say to yourself, you’ll say, “Boy, Airbnbing aint what it used to be…”
Another Hum-Drum Injury Car Accident on Masonic – Airbags Everywhere, Cars Totalled – Autobots Sacrifice Selves to Save OwnersMonday, September 14th, 2015
An accident* on Masonic yesterday at Hayes, with CCSF’s John Adams Campus (the former Lowell High School, 1913-1962):
(My money’s on the VW’s driver being at fault, but who knows.)
Now how many airbags exploded during this fender bender, like a dozen? You could see all matter of them from a distance. How much would it cost to replace a single side curtain bag, for instance, one wonders. The upshot is that the people inside these rides get injured less than they would have a generation ago, but the cars get damaged more.
So it’s off to the scrapheap they go.
Seems fair enough.
*’Cause it wasn’t on purpose. Now if it were, then we’d call this collision attempted homicide or something. But if you’re an “urbanist” or whatnot, feel free to call it a collision if you want – that word would also apply. TY, drive through.
In the next world war
In a jackknifed juggernaut
I am born again.
In the neon sign
Scrolling up and down
I am born again
In an interstellar burst
I am back to save the universe
In a deep, deep sleep
Of the innocent
I am born again
In a fast German car
I’m amazed that I survived
An airbag saved my life
Hollywood-Types Invade the Western Addition for a Nighttime Shoot – A Fake ATM Installed on Hayes, Next to the Style-O-Rama ShopSunday, September 13th, 2015
[UPDATE: Oh, this flick is called PUSHING DEAD, with Danny Glover.]
Hey look, it’s a fake “EVERGOLD” CREDIT UNION ATM – the gold paint’s still wet. As seen tonight at Hayes and Ashbury:
All the deets – these particular Hollywood-types hail from Newport Beach, as many of them do.
Grab some popcorn and then head on over to watch “P. Dead,” whatever that is. Anywho, this show will end by 2:00 AM Monday morning.
Stay gold, Frisco.
Play us out, Beck.
They sent five trucks, looks like:
