    Dear San Francisco

    I saw a pigeon walking around on mission st and 14th with a hypodermic needle stuck clean through its neck. That was gross.

    P.S. from what I saw, damn there's a lot of 4 lane roads, I felt like such a country boy.

    How do you folks do it?

    haha, I like the "brown-drip" aka "snickers and crack", ever see a dude take a dump without bending his knees?

    there's an alley by cash and carry that seems to be a favorite among the bummys in my hood...

    I'm pretty sure that was just a junkie. a lot of them look pretty ****ed up, but I've never seen one that looked like a pigeon. I have seen many of them with needles sticking out of their necks.

    BTW you should carry a camera with you at all times.

    Every good city has it's dark side. Don't let stuff like junky pigeons keep you from San Francisco. It's a GREAT place.

    oooooh, man... gonna be in SF in a week! can't wait!

    love that city, but it is abit freaky. LOTS of crazies walkin down the street, sketchy stretch along Market there. and one guy last year walking down the street yelling, "Devil's trying to steal my dick! Devil's trying to steal my balls!"

    is this guy a regular in downtown SF? i hope he got his balls back...
    I've seen some people who should definitely be wearing a helmet, maybe even 24/7 on or off a bike.

    Theres a comic who does a bit about watching a homeless dude punch a pigeon in mid-flight. Funny stuff. the junky pigeon just made me think of that. Its sad how the pigeons have fallen. I remember when they were sxe.
    I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

    just got back from SF, and i wish i could say these battlewounds are from a spill while riding, but...


    i was under the weather all week and didn't get a chance to ride. THIS was from some fukkin' freak-show blind-siding me upside the head, running at me from behind at full tilt.

    i have defended this city in the past, but now i'd say don't walk the streets without a baseball bat in your hands. this was at 2pm on Sunday in front of City Hall. SF seriously needs to do something about the crazies walkin the streets there.

    my sig has more meaning to me now....

    damn, that sucks man. when i was out in san fran recently i decided it's definitely far sketchier than NYC. there is NO WHERE in NYC as skeezy as the tenderloin. granted, NYC seems to be creeping back towards its prior glory but yeah. SF is crazy.

    i did see lots of nice fixies and singlespeeds around town, was tempted to get pics of a few. my girlfriend was sick of me pointing out punks doing track-stands at the lights by the end of the week...

    dude, you gotta believe me when i say i did JACK**** to provoke this attack. i wasn't making eye-contact with anything i was so hungover from the night before.

    the folks i was with had to tell me what happened. all i felt was my skull rattle and my girlfriend freaks out tells me i'm bleeding - i'm like "Where?". i had no idea that he got my face.

    messed.

    tenderloin is pretty crazy skeezy but oakland is crazy in a more dangerous kind of way. You always look over your shoulder in oakland. always.

    see, the thing about oakland and parts of NYC is that they're dangerous, but in a predictable way. i can deal with that. SF is just full of insane people, which is mad sketchy.
