Doubled is an exhibition of recent mixed media paintings, sculpture, video and a pair of wall drawings by Emily Prince. In Doubled, O?Dell started with an old portico in Golden Gate Park called The Portals of the Past. His interest in the site comes from its reference in Hitchcock?s Vertigo and his own experience of it on daily bike rides. Show More Summary

TweetFROGBUSTERS! [Read down starting here. This scene is a little bit away from the Lily Pond at the old quarry – let’s hope GGP won’t need too many frog docs in future.] Another great shot via James Corrigan, this time at Stow Lak...

TweetWhat powers this ride? The gasoline? Maybe, but this safety-oriented piloti doesn’t look the rebel rebel type. OTOH, where’s the battery if this rig is all-electric? I know not. Compare all this with a legal all-electric bike rider ebikefan, whose mellow gets harshed by a mean-spirited hippie: “Encounter with ignorant E-Bike hater in San Francisco […]
TweetThis is in the Panhandle, which I consider part of Golden Gate Park, the same way I consider a pan’s handle to be a part of the pan and the same way I consider the Oklahoma Panhandle to be a part of Oklahoma: This is between Fell and Oak near Clayton, as opposed to the […]

TweetI’ll tell you, in my day the Panhandle Bike Path was a mere eight foot wide. And then it went to twelve foot, the way it is now. But how about 16 feet – what the heck would be wrong with that? JMO. Anyway, they just got finished repaving the southwest corner of Fell and […]
TweetI’ll tell you, they’ve been working on installing this generator-powered mobile cell phone tower(?) in the Golden Gate Park Panhandle near Fell and Masonic since Monday, so obvs the Recreation and Park Department knows what’s going on here: But what’s behind the cyclone fencing? It’s a NOTICE what says: “STAY BACK! Radio-frequency energy May exceed […]
TweetI would Like this SFPD Facebook entry, but I don’t know how! (Isn’t that sad?) Anyway, make up your own jokes here: SFPD Richmond Station 7 mins · INJURY TRAFFIC COLLISION MLK & Chain of Lakes (Golden Gate Park) 04-25-2015 4:12 AM A Porsche was traveling eastbound on MLK at an unsafe speed when the […]
Metallica are a Bay Area institution much like the Golden Gate Bridge and Coit Tower, so for the third consecutive year, the San Francisco Giants honored the band with a "Metallica Day" at their AT&T Park. The heavy metal crew's annual celebration at the ballpark, held this season on May 2nd,...

TweetI suppose these people were in sleeping bags like at 11:00 AM or so and that attracted some attention from the SFPD? Does our newish sit-lie law even apply to this location at this time of day? IDK. But once you start accumulating these kinds of nuisance citations, you might start thinking about moving on […]
TweetAs seen at 6th Avenue and Fulton, more or less – The Skatin’ Place:
Tweet All right, work with me, people! What we’re talking about with “West NoPA” is the area west of north of east of the Golden Gate Park Panhandle. At what point do microneighborhoods get absurd? Here we go, the Panhandle is in green, the area literally north of the Panhandle is marked in dark grey, […]
TweetI’ll tell you, I’ve taught people how to ride bikes over the years, and I’ll tell you the amount of hours spent teaching all those people how to push a bikes, well, that has been exactly zero. And yet in these courses, as seen in the Panhandle, that seems to be all they do, just […]
TweetAnd when I say sort of, I mean like this, a rare scene with three of them together in a kind of electric skater / biker gang in the Panhandle of Golden Gate Park… …one used to be even rarer. Is this Our Transportation Future?
