Amazing succulent on Ortega Street with junk the length of a telephone pole bursting through the ubiquitous cobweb of overhead electrical lines.

So that Einstein throwing dice piece on Upper Haight from a few weeks ago might not have been a Banksy after all.

29 06 2010

I remember there was some debate at the time whether or not that Einstein throwing dice stencil on Upper Haight from a few weeks ago was really done by Banksy. It was a really beautifully executed piece that seemed to jive with Banksy’s wit and it materialized during a period when the British street artist was passing through town and did several other high profile pieces in San Francisco. However, it wasn’t featured on his site, which led to some speculation that the stencil might have been done by someone else.

I’m still receiving traffic on a daily basis from search engines looking for “Banksy Einstein Haight” so I don’t know if it’s in my best interest to clarify that debate, especially since that Einstein stencil lasted less than a week before being painted over and some of Banksy’s original pieces have sold for over half a million dollars so I feel like I captured something that’s unique and priceless.

But I just discovered that there’s a new stencil at that same location.

Not Banksy Thinker on Upper Haight

Auguste Rodin’s The Thinker on his porcelain throne? That’s a great mashup of highbrow and lowbrow culture.

Does anyone know who is the artist of this piece? If so, please let me know in the comments. I love his or her style and sense of humor.

You know it’s a good sign when Frank Chu, PLANT TREES, and D. Miles Jr. are all there at the start of your party, along with half a dozen other unique San Francisco icons that I recognize but don’t have their urls. All the planets were in perfect alignment for this one.

There was a moment where Deep took the microphone and was teasing all the people on the steps of the tower for not participating. “C’mon, all you bloggers. It’s OK to dance” But it’s true. A year ago the steps to the tower were filled with skaters. Now it’s all bloggers.

Reaching out for something to hold. Looking for a love where the climate is cold. Smoking guns hot to the touch. Would cool down if we didn’t use them so much. We’re soul alone and soul really matters to me.

OK. Here’s my pitch –

Morgan Freeman is this ninja cyborg from a dystopian future where angry whales rule the world. He had his arm bit off by a dolphin in Vietnam and now he spends his time as a private investigator in Hawaii where he devotes one hour each week to having adventures and helping people with their problems. Ernest Borgnine is this one eyed, salt of the earth, sailor type that’s the Higgins of the team.

Oh! And it’s animated too! But in this retro Heavy Metal meets Yellow Submarine psychedelic style.


Now put that on my car.

I really love that dogmatic cult icon.

The first thing I do once I win the lottery is buy me a Burning Man. I know a lot of people would consider that blasphemy, but that’s part of what makes it the holy grail of collectable action figures. I must have one for my living room.
