farmer’s market

img id=”image1860″ src=”http://myrobotispregnant.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/05/0508menu.jpg” alt=”0508menu.jpg” />

Here’s a nice piece found at the S.F. Farmer’s Market. If you look closely you’ll notice they painted over an old menu that was done with stick-on letters. That’s a touch of authenticity an artist couldn’t capture. Note too the letter “T” is always capitalized. Hmmm….

Since the topic of the farmer’s market has been broached, let’s take a look around. In-flight and automobile club magazines and any other magazine that “takes a look” at fun things to do in a city will always go to the Farmer’s Market and get some local color. Like this kid:


Totally stoned as he lords over the produce, what the photo doesn’t reveal is this fresh air market is nearly underneath the intersections of Highway 101 and 280. There are tribute pieces graffitied on a cement retaining wall behind him. A notorious housing project further up the hillside. And this young field hand just wants to sit up on Dad’s new orchard mower and think about his girlfriend, but no, he has to come to the city and deal with stupid idiots all day.

That part of the story isn’t in your monthly Triple A magazine. Neither is this next photo, where I looked for phallic references in the vegetables. (Not particularly hard) ((No pun intended))


These travel articles are so predictable. How many times do you think the baker below has had to put on the rectal exam gloves and hold that loaf up? The thing is bigger than his torso. It looks like it’s fresh out of an elephants ass. But he’s trying to make a living and some asshole, (me) wants a picture of the giant loaf of bread. Let’s do it again.


So there it is. 100 Alemany Street in San Francisco, if you want to check it out. I’d rather be at a weapons market in Afghanistan handling shoulder mount rocket launchers, but it’s not that kind of city here. I’m trying to make the best of it.

My web host, ipower.com, has kinked up the chute to my internet . Don’t know where the homepage went or how we ended up back in June of ’06. They said it’d be better tomorrow…

  2. I dunno, i kinda liked 2006. I was in Colon, Panama getting ready to depart for Portobello, Panama, where most the stolen Incan gold was loaded onto ships and sent to Spain. What we didn’t know was that our transmission was about to a huge crap and we would be stuck in a remote harbor for two weeks, and then we would have to sail without the engine back into colon, which happens to be the Caribbean entrance to the panama canal. One of the busiest shipping lanes in the world.
    here is a link the webpage about how we did it. http://uteatlarge.blogspot.com/2006_06_01_archive.html
    this is the june page but since we were on a boat, no daily updates. may’s is pretty good also and it tells of our transit through the canal from the pacific to the atlantic.
    thought you would like to know why i liked 2006.

  3. Pretty cool, Al. That does make 2006 look pretty awesome!

    16 years ago you were plotting to stab Andy Hudson with a pair of scissors. Now you sail all over the planet. That’s a nice upswing in outlook.

  5. Hello,

    I don’t see how or why your WordPress is broken but upgrading is an excellent idea for security reasons. If you don’t know what a theme is then having the tech do it shouldn’t cause you much heartache.

    A theme is how your web site is styled and whatnot. It is easy to change to a different theme if you want to.


    PS WTF? Why is this post from 2006 in 2008? And … narrative?
