Lucid dreaming squid

June 21st, 2012

Lucid dreaming squid

Ever had a lucid dream? If you’re not familiar with the term, it’s a dream where you are fully conscious and can exert influence over the dream. (Yes, you can be asleep and conscious at the same time.)

As this squid points out, looking at one’s hands is a good way to check if one is in a dream or not. In waking life, one’s hands look like, well, hands. But in a dream one doesn’t have hands — it tends to be a dead giveaway that one is dreaming when one look at one’s hands and they disappear or are unstable.

Just to be clear, however, this is not a lucid dream. The squid is messing with your head.

(Spotted at 18th and Valencia.)

Harvey Milk stencil

Harvey Milk stencil

A new stencil appeared around town lately depicting the late civil rights icon Harvey Milk. But would Milk have been okay with defacing public property with, well, his face? And would he be able to appreciate the irony of the color choice (white)?

I don’t know the answer to these questions. But perhaps John Avalos could bust out his
Ouija board
and find out.

(Spotted on 17th and South Van Ness.)

Graffiti mocks CCTV camera

November 23rd, 2010

This graffiti mural mocks the CCTV camera that looms over it. It’s sort of a middle finger to the powers that be, while simultaneously integrated with its surroundings. I find it amusing.




Spotted on Valencia between 14th and 15th.

Little sidewalk guy’s Tom Shane-hating friend

The little guy on the sidewalk we saw recently has a friend who has a strong distaste for a certain diamond salesman.



I wonder how he feels about Paul at the Diamond Center?
