Chill Techbro Zooms Uphill on the Streets of San Francisco on His Electric Skateboard Like It Aint No Thang

TweetA modern day warrior Mean, mean stride Today’s Tom Sawyer Mean, mean pride Though his mind is not for rent Don’t put him down as arrogant His reserve a quiet defense Riding out the day’s events McAllister Balance, control and effortlessnessness – this Bro knows how to get around the Big City in a way […]

Cat, Grow, and Halfway: Know Your Sunset and Richmond District Houses – Fogbelt Paradise

TweetMost of San Francisco’s murders take place in the giant “S” that snakes from the Twitterloin through SoMA, through Hayes Valley, through La Mision, and then on down to Bayview / Hunters Point and Visi Valley. Year after year. But occasionally we get murders out in San Francisco County, in the Avenues, the suburbs. And […]

The Time of the Week When the SFMTA Doesn’t Seem to Mind Cars Parked on the Sidewalk

TweetThe white truck on the left is parked on the sidewalk. The SFMTA “knows” this because a dozen SFMTA-employed eyeballs have just passed by to see it. Yet, it didn’t get ticketed. OTOH, the white car on the far right _did_ get a ticket, you can see it, for blocking a street sweeper on street […]

United Nations Plaza Update: These Naughty Grannies are _Still_ Selling Food Given to Them for Free and Meant for Hungry People

TweetThey used to hang out on Market near 7th, but now they’ve been pushed north, closer to the Tenderloin Crime Containment Zone: This is what happens when you give food to a food bank. Oh well.

The Reason Why the Late Winter Cherry Blossoms You’re Seeing in San Francisco ARE NOT Proof of Global Warming

TweetWhat’s that, when you were a mere pup cherry trees blossomed in March or April and now you’re seeing blooms in late January and the start of February? Like here on Grove yesterday, and all over SF pretty soon: But actually, the trees you’re seeing are actually flowering plums, which are known for their early […]

35 Degrees: Acute Angles in Car Design, Then and Now, the 1950’s vs. Current Day, Old Dodge vs. New Prius

TweetAs seen near the end of Turk, which looks like Cuba sometimes what with all the 1950’s cars parked about: Which angle is your favorite?

Spawning Salmon: The Horrible Pedestrians of the Rather Narrow Golden Gate Panhandle Bike Path

Tweet(Well, sure it’s not an actual bike-only path, it’s a multipurpose trail, or something. But most call it the bike path cause bike riders are allowed on it, as opposed to the ped-only path near Oak on the other side of the Panhandle.) I’m a polite ped so I generally stay off the paved part […]

What a BLANKET AND JACKET GIVEAWAY Looks Like in the Golden Gate Park Panhandle

TweetIt looks like this, with about 20 people queuing up about 20 minutes before the event begins: Would SFGov / Rec and Park consider these fliers “illegal?” Yep, they would. Anyway, that’s what it looked like.

NIMBY’s vs. the SFMTA: Local Objections to New Traffic Signals on McAllister at Broderick and Scott for the 5 Fulton

TweetThis effort appears to be similar to the SFMTA’s attempt to add traffic signals on Haight at Scott and Pierce. This isn’t the worst example of NIMBYism, but I’d say it’s fairly alarmist, fairly absurd. I’ll just say that, generally speaking, it’s generally harder to get around town these days by car, by bike and […]

San Francisco Says NOPE to E-Cigarettes, You Know, Officially

TweetApparently, we, as the second largest town in the bay area, are all saying NOPE to e-cigs and we’re spending money to send that message all the way to North Carolina: Ok fine.

Irate Pedestrian Hectors Bike Riders Individually and Indiscriminately in a Crosswalk at 4th and Market

TweetShe hectored only the riders who stopped for her at the crosswalk. She was angered by the riders who went through the red, but they were too far away for her to hector. Her unfocused rage came out against those who were already doing as she wished. Then after she passed by, riders began to […]

Maserati Driver Enjoys a Cruise Up Larkin in the Troubled Twitterloin

TweetOn the back of a flatbed tow truck, again: Oh Maserati drivers, will you ever win?

Jetta vs. Jetta Head-On at Turk and Stanyan Near USF the Night Before Classes Begin

TweetKing-American hauled off to UC at least one Jetta occupant: The area around USF seems more like a college town these days, with tons of stus milling about the surrounding blocks, as compared with a couple decades back – IDK why, perhaps that’s just my impression…

Know Your Foxes and Know Your Coyotes of Golden Gate Park – Both are Harmless – Tail Up or Tail Down?

TweetGet your 2015 coyote update from Hoodline. Coyotes are small, brownish, wild dogs, basically. They run with their non-bushy tails held down. Thusly, as seen on JFK Drive near the Bison Paddock, shortly before Fish and Game plumb blew this critter away, with a rifle: Lots of people don’t notice them, cause they hide most […]

Corrupt Twitterloin Update: “Beyond Chron” “Editor” and SFGov Contractor Randy Shaw Strongly Objects to SFPD’s Redistricting Plan

TweetSo, taxpayer spending on the ineffective Tenderloin Housing Clinic empire is up 2000% the past couple decades and what has that gotten us? Why don’t other cities do things the way we do in the Tenderloin – why is SF so unique in this regard. Why doesn’t Randy Shaw lay out how his operations benefit […]

Old School: 1) Struggle to Leave the Projects. 2) Celebrate by Buying a Mercedes – New School: Struggle to Get _Into_ the Projects

TweetAnd of course, get the Mercedes first, the better to enjoy your free parking space a stone’s throw from City Hall, you know, when you get the chance to move in. Thusly, as seen on McAllister, pulling into the PJs near Gough. Did I mention that this is a gated community? Yes, it is. One […]

Introducing Loop, the 24 Hour Convenience Store at 19th and Lincoln What Looks Like an Audi Dealership

TweetAll the deets, via Hoodline. When they were building this thing last year, I thought it was going to be a tall apartment building…

How the “Walk For Life” Anti-Abortion People Used Reuters to Exaggerate the Number of Participants

TweetHere’s your search: And here’s the kicker, in super small type: Reuters is not responsible for the content in this press release. Oh, so it’s a press release. OK. What the Walk for Life people are really touchy about are crowd estimates. At the beginning, they’d have realistic crowd estimates, then a few years […]

How the SFMTA Got Me – I Mistakenly Blocked 30 Feet of the Western Addition from Street Sweeping – Street Trees

TweetHere’s what the signs look like around the corner: Good, because it was a Friday. Oh, here we go: But then you get a ticket, anyway. Whoops. Here’s what the signs actually say: (At least this street tree didn’t topple over and kill me, as street trees have killed and injured so many others.) I […]
