Arthur Christ Agnos was Almost Assassinated Four Decades Ago – A Short Read on Former San Francisco Mayor Art Agnos

Friday, January 17th, 2014

All the deets of what occurred at 991 Wisconsin Street 40 years ago.

And here’s more

These days, Mayor Agnos need only worry about attempted character assassinations from the likes of recent Props B & C election loser* Nate Ballard

*I’m sorry, this is the innernet – should have written it as “looser” Nate Ballard. Poor Nate! Will you ever win?

I thought they’d all look like this by now.

Anyway, the zebra people just did Fulton and Masonic the past few days.

Zebra stripes, zebra stripes everywhere soon, looks like.

Zebra Stripes Come to the Crosswalks of Fell Street

This is new:

Now is this the kind of small project that the aides of District Five Supervisor London Breed would dismissively call a “chop shop project,” the likes of which SFGov purportedly doesn’t do anymore?

It sure looks that way to me.

NMA-TV’s Take on “Joe Paterno and Penn State’s Fall From Grace” is Surprisingly Poignant – A One-Minute Video

Thursday, November 24th, 2011

Here it is, no dialogue:

I guess there are more than mountain lions roaming the hills of Nittany.

And here’s an earlier effort along the same vein, with JoePa as Pope. It has a nice stinger at the end.

Remember Gurbaksh “G” Chahal, San Francisco’s Own “Secret Millionaire?” Well, Now He’s Crying Over His Busted Ferrari

Friday, July 29th, 2011

Remember Gurbaksh “G” Chahal and all his troubles? Well, if you don’t, watch one-minute of this video from the NBC. Good times.

(Remember when he proudly pointed out his flat-panel TV (“BAM!”) and “great mirror?” And the zebra pelt on the kitchen floor?*)

But now, there’s sadness in his life owing to his slightly older-model Ferrari getting cracked up while in the custody of his Ferrari dealership. Of course, the dealership has offered to fix it up and/or offered to let him by a newer, unused Ferrari at a higher price, but that’s not good enough for G.

Read all about it via Ryan Tate of Gawker.

Also via Ryan, an excerpt from the FB:

See that “why does this crap always happen to me?” 

Does this make “G” the “definition of a douchelord?”

Chin up, G!

*Apparently, the people behind the Secret Millionaire show wanted to show a big delta between the lifestyle of his real-life SoMA pad vs. the Tenderloin hovel that he shacked-up in during the filming of the show. Well, some people got carried away with the made-for-TV furnishings. So that’s where the zebra pelt and chandelier came in. Ironically, you might prefer to live in that hovel on Larkin Street – it’s not that bad, right across the street from Homeland Security. Typical Americans watching had no idea that the rent on that supposedly unlivable apartment in the Tenderloin was more than their flyover country mortgage payments…

Bad-Boy Secret Millionare Gurbaksh “G” Chahal Sued by The Infinity Owners Association

Friday, April 16th, 2010

Appears that area phony and Secret Millionare Gurbaksh “G” Chahal is running into a little trouble these days. 

Via Curbed SF, the partially pay-walled San Francisco Business Times, and, finally the SocketSite FTW, here’s the latest lawsuit against poor, misunderstood G.

Perhaps he’s abusing the staff at Yelp-rated Infinity Towers because of buyer’s remorse? You know, the nearby One Rincon building in SoMA is newer and taller – maybe that could account for G’s petulance.

Keep it real, G.

Spotting an All-Electric ZAP Xebra Microcar on the Streets of San Francisco

Wednesday, April 14th, 2010

Well, here it is, straight-outta-Shandong, it’s a three-wheeled ZAP! Xebra all-electric car / motorcycle.

Now, one of the things you should know by now is to never trust anything said by anybody from an electric car company. (Sometimes they’ll lie to you on purpose and sometimes they’ll lie to you inadvertently.) Anyway, I’ll let Wiki take over now – seems as if Santa Rosa-based ZAP! has more than it’s fair share of issues.

Recently seen on Market Street:

Take a look at the video of a Xebra on Sloat from the Cat Snuggler - this could be the same exact vehicle.

Let’s hope the range is over 15 miles per charge IRL for the newer models.

Wow! You can even buy them on the craigslist.

Keep a look out.
