San Francisco Giants Sweep World Series
So I don’t know what it was like where you were at 9:30 last night, but people were going nuts in the Mission. Minutes after the Giants won the World Series, there were people setting off fireworks on Shotwell St. This was still early, about half an hour after the Giants won, so people were just starting to take over the streets. Still, they already had a meter maid close off driving access to Mission Street. There were still cars, some confused but mostly fans cruising through, honking and waving flags. It didn’t take more than ten minutes after the win to have helicopters hovering.
PS, Go Giants!
So this is fun. The first picture is a close-up of one of the political murals on Telegraph Avenue in Berkeley, where someone put a sticker up that makes the girl look like she is wearing glasses. Then the next day I saw another one in the Mission, in Clarion Alley. Another full-sized mural with sticker-glasses stuck on the dog in the corner. In graffiti art, the work itself often is the signature but what is fun is that the artist here seems to require someone else’s art to give it context. Instead of just sticking them everywhere, they are deliberately adding the glasses to the art already there.
You could go make some stickers like that, and carry them everywhere. But yours should be something else: A ring? A weapon? a pepper spray cop? What would you add to the murals and signs and billboards in your city?
