TweetHere’s the latest on this one: Critical Mass window smasher was wearing T-shirt advocating non-violence by Evan Sernoffsky Oh, I read it as The Union is Our Strength. And I thought, oh, I guess that makes sense. But the real quote is much better. Anyway, here’s the front of the shirt – it depicts the UFW […]
TweetWell, here’s the news from National Geographic: “Ringling Bros. to Retire Its Circus Elephants – The circus will send its traveling Asian elephants to a conservation center by 2018.” That means a 145-year tradition is about to end and this might be your last chance to see it. I’m going, I’ll take a couple little […]
TweetAs seen near USF:
TweetHere’s shot of a 2000-something square foot knoll from a couple years back, in the Golden Gate Park Panhandle – keep off our expensive new turf, man is what RPD was saying with the temporary cyclone fencing: Nice and green, huh? This was the color of the Mound when the (fake) Rain Garden went in: […]
TweetWestbound Fell at Masonic. This might be OK: But this isn’t – this is tailgating, CVC 21703: A close-up: And off and away on Fell, heading into the sunset: Cyclist took the lane until he didn’t – any incident would be on the driver. This concludes Fell Street Blues.
TweetWell, I suppose it’s three peds, actually. Now let’s see how they do: See that? The two peds on the left act properly and the jogger ped does not. As per usual… There’s room for improvement at this intersection, SFGov/SFMTA. Just saying.
TweetAll The Deets, from Amy Stephenson of Hoodline. As seen near Page and Shrader And here are ever more deets on the “Falun Gong Show,” from late-aughts SFist und late-aughts The New Republic. Back when it was better. Sorry
TweetVia KQED – oh, I see. So, Seven-Pointed Star + Frisco Phoenix + Oakland Oak = Interestingly enough, elements of the designerly community plus a North Bay tech firm’s marketing department are colluding to ban our current Oro en Paz, Fierro en Guerra City of San Francisco rising phoenix flag and replace it with something like […]
TweetI didn’t see the chariots this year:
TweetPush push push yourself to work:
TweetYou know, just saying.
TweetHere’s the link – it was dispensing free tickets as of 2:20 PM today. Registration with Ticketfly required. NPR-approved. I guess that whole deal about getting detained by the SFPD at Outside Lands 2015 got worked out… Imagine you’d want to show up super early for this one.
TweetHere’s the sitch on Lincoln – this ped gave a what’s-a-matta-you gesture to the driver of this Toyota Prius, for not yielding to her, basically. Then she continued to jog across one (who knows which – they all look the same to me) of the Avenues: But here’s the thing. Peds aren’t really allowed to […]
TweetBackground. Here’s how she looks with the new striping: The leftmost lane allows drivers to turn left or go straight – this seems like a mistake to me, but, then again, lots of things the SFMTA does seem like a mistake. To me.
TweetSFGov has learned to justify anything and everything as a matter of “safety.” As here, where LED lights are going in: Now IRL, what these LEDs will do is save money, prolly, over time. The connection to safety is tenuous, certainly. Hey, what’s that in the background? Is it Yet Another Streetlight in the area […]
TweetThis post is two posts… …two posts in one! So the reason why the Napa Valley Wine Train people just caved so quickly and completely is that they needed to stop the massive bleeding pronto. I’ll tell you, the Regular Yelp reviews for la Vallee de Napa Train de Vin are bad enough these days, but it’s Secret […]
TweetI don’t really park at parking meters so I don’t know if this photo shows the first notice our SFMTA gives users of it’s new credit card tax: (Of course, such surcharges are generally banned under CA law (CCC section 1748.1), except the law has a few loopholes, one of which the SFMTA has taken […]
TweetThat’s the update regarding this sitch on Oak betwixt Masonic and Ashbury. The big issue was notice, but notice has been achieved. Three cheers. Next comes the lane restriping…
TweetANSWER: It doesn’t Next question: How does this trip to the gro sto improve air quality? ANSWER: It doesn’t.
