An Oddity: A Big Rig-Style Smokestack Atop a Van Assisting With the Heist Production in Haight Ashbury

Friday, April 10th, 2015

First up, some signage to learn the locals that our Dear Leader is fully on board with the production of this heist movie, so step off, hippies:

And is this a rolling coal diesel exhaust coming out of this van parked on Stanyan, the better to power a phalanx of electronic gear?

Sure looks that way.

I’ve never seen a smokestack on the top of a van before…

Disturbia: Trail of “Bloody” Footprints on Hayes Leads to $5 Million House That Used to be a Baptist Church – Good Friday?

Saturday, April 4th, 2015

Nuala Sawyer of Hoodline just snapped this photo in the Western Addition – all the deets here:

Disturbing Footprints Leave Neighborhood Concerned

Via Nuala Sawyer:

Capturefsffffff

(Now I’ll tell you, whenever I leave bloody footprints, the trail generally, how do you say, attenuates as I move on. Moving on…)

Sure seems curious that this trail starts at the more-trafficked part of the NoPA / Western Addition and leads to 601 Broderick, the THERE GOES THE NEIGHBORHOODhouse, which, of course, used to be Gethsemane Baptist Church.

And then this building got sold for $5 million(!) as a Single Family Home.

And now it stands out, IMO, in an area of expensive houses.

Oh, here you go, CurbedSF’s Tracy Elsen called these transactions “our absolute favorite flip of the year.”

And here’s some assigned reading from Building Talker James Hill

601 BRODERICK: NOSTALGIA AND AMNESIA

But of course, I don’t know who did what to create those imprints…

Looks Legit! – Hey, It’s a New “AMAZON DELIVERY” Van

Wednesday, April 1st, 2015

[UPDATE: Nick Turner, an Editor employed by Bloomberg notes:

Think the green vans are groceries (Fresh) and white ones are contractors they use for Prime deliveries. Not 100% sure, though.”]

I’m a little auspicious of this one:

Oh, and Amazon, check out CVC 26708, Material Obstructing or Reducing Driver’s View, conveniently located after the jump. (Unless that doesn’t apply to your operation – I can’t tell if it does. But the spirit of this law certainly should apply to your operation, Amazon.)

If Pablo doesn’t want to live and work in the bay area, that’s OK, right?

An Energetic Street Youth Makes It “Snow” in the Western Addition by Climbing Up a Plum Tree and Shaking It

And if you think this a cherry tree, I’ll ask you what color the leaves are, and you’ll say plum, and I’ll say BINGO! Even in J-town, the blossoms you see are from plum trees…

(My roommates in colledge used to dance on the floor, while seated, with arms flailing, to this song, and it wasn’t all that old at the time, that’s how old I am.)
