Sometimes in life there’s questions that don’t seem to have concrete answers, like who shot JFK or the career of Shia LaBeouf. Today another such question popped into existence in the form of a perplexing wood box installed on a utility pole at 16th and Guerrero. It’s the kind of thing one wouldn’t notice easily, like a slightly misplaced item you only catch out of the corner of your eye.
Some of the questions I’ve been able to come up with:
If any answers are provided I’ll post updates. Until then, I’ll be scratching my head.
A mural recently appeared on the side of the former Andalu space at 16th and Guerrero. Apparently there’s more to come, as a large sign proclaims that the space is “reserved.” Stay tuned for further updates as the mural progresses.
UPDATE: A new piece of the mural has appeared.
UPDATE, part 2: Despite being aggressively tagged over in the past few days, the mural sprung back into action with more cutesy characters.
UPDATE, part 3: Well, that didn’t last.
It’s voting day, and this flyer appeared on various utility poles near 16th and Mission this morning.
The text reads:
Proposition U (the “Sin Tax” Legislation)
Argument In Favor of Proposition U:
No pleasure without pain.
Rebuttal to Argument in Favor of Proposition U:
Beware the wiles of mustachioed ladies. Are we really okay with a one-eyed King? Say wolverines, or badgers, scratch through the low window, behind the Hydrangeas. Or a possum. Or an opossum? Either way — they’re still inside the house.
Argument Opposed to Proposition U:
If dolphins were larger, would they have old tires stuck around their heads, instead of old six-pack rings? Tracking polls indicate near universal acceptance of [argument]. We need to get back to defiling the native architecture.
Rebuttal to Argument Opposed to Proposition U:
There sits one day in a place far away a little girl and her doll. And her doll could be at risk and her risk could be very real even if the doll’s imaginary friend ran for office.
Paid Argument In Favor of Proposition U:
It’s like I said before. Your ship as come in, buddy! Stop fighting it.
Paid Argument Opposed to Proposition U:
A voter walks into a bar. He — and let’s just say it’s a he — sits down at a table. And let’s just say a gal comes over and sits on his lap. It’s a free country.
What do you think, readers? How are you going to vote on Proposition U?
Finally, a street art mural of the Simpsons that’s as blurry as my memories of a time when the show was still funny.
UPDATE: The Simpsons have now come into focus.
(Spotted in Clarion Alley.)
Superman, Batman, Spiderman — and now — Hot Dog Suit Man!
If I had to venture a guess, I’d assume his superpowers involve squirting out condiments into the faces of his enemies, safely apprehending criminals with his “bacon wrap,” and giving people a bad case of the runs. What a badass!
To see Hot Dog Suit Man yourself, check out his Bun Cave over at Albion and Camp.
Apparently a ghost outbreak occurred near Mission and 17th St. today, but it was already contained by the time I arrived at the scene. The ghosts are gone, all that was left was the Ghostbuster’s car.
Scary stuff. Stay safe, everyone!
No word as to whether this is related to Slimer’s visit to Valencia back in 2010.
