These crashes at the Hahnenkamm Downhill in Austria will make you cringe. These guys and girls are truly insane. They are defying death with every grip of their edges, and putting everything on the line..and when it goes wrong, it ain’t pretty.
Sometimes I post real estate stuff, sometimes I post about things I love. Mostly, I just want to test how a video looks on my new site design. Regardless, here’s to El Niño doing his thang…
Procrastinating before posting this week’s Maximum Overbid, and putting together the webpage for my awesome new listing in Glen Park @1793 Sanchez, I stumbled across this video: SF Hipsters on your fixies take note…this girl will crush your skills, and darnit if all you guys didn’t just fall in love a little.
To think, I didn’t even have to pay these guys to do this. Must be the high altitude and thin air at Alta Ski Area making these jokesters think like Top Producers: Sometimes we all feel like this in this crazy real estate market. Follow up…they found The Goods (albeit a bit dirty and not … Continue reading Going Up theFrontSteps | #BigAl

Imagine if the British had won… I hope the fog lifts so San Francisco gets a firework display, rather than a colorful cloud show. Me, I’m outta here, seeking 90+ degree weather, high altitude, blue water, mt bike trails, and eventually my kids. Be safe. Drive safe. Drink Safe. Have a great weekend.
The entire Bay Area is teeming with ski fever. More ski racks are showing up on cars, fleece and Gore-tex wear is on the rise, and non-stop chatter about ski leases is everywhere. But wait! Perhaps you should think more along the lines of an Ocean Beach ski lease. With a new swell on the … Continue reading Bay Area Ski Season Is Here! But Wait, Do You Need Tahoe?
“Me and my friend, we just started to have hecka fun…” “The last wave that I caught…it was SO huge…it was like, like 10-15 feet!” Hats off to the San Francisco locals that made this happen. Good stuff to warm your soul, and remind ourselves of the great people that live in our area. Chasing … Continue reading From San Francisco’s Sunnydale Projects To The Waves Of Marin: Escaping Violence In Search Of Fun
Put this on my list of things I would love to do, and never will. Makes all of us “hard core” (I use that term very loosely) Tahoe skiers look like a bunch of pansies, doesn’t it.
Top 10 California Home Buyer Surnames: Excellent and relevant data C.A.R! I’m gonna go get me a mailing list of Nguyens, Lees, and Chens, and sell me some houses! The complete report is below (in PowerPoint). Have a ball with the data. I did. Buyers be warned. Instead of being asked for proof of funds, … Continue reading Sorry Smith, Nguyen Wins. Lee A Close Second. Garcia In Third.
Have you made a trip into Golden Gate Park recently (maybe to go to the De Young Museum or Academy of Sciences), and wondered what the hell is going on with some cars parked on the curb, some parked (what would appear to be) in the middle of the road, bikes zipping by in between … Continue reading Golden Gate Park’s JFK Drive Separated Bikeway Project (Have You Noticed The Chaos?)
Turn the volume up… –Bring Your Own Big Wheel, San Francisco, Potrero Hill, Vermont Street [Official Site]
As a reminder, if you can’t get a laugh out of this San Francisco, you need to harden the f*ck up! This is absolutely f*cking hilarious…especially the “Can I get a three quarter double shot 50/50 decaf soy latte with one and a quarter equals in a take-away cup…” This could be anywhere in San … Continue reading Put These Guys In San Francisco And…Bam! We Have A Match.
Don’t be fooled by other agents trying to sell you an ocean view home on the Great Highway. That would be a monumental waste of money if your purchase is based on proximity to the contest. The Rip Curl Search San Francisco is supposed to happen at the north end of Ocean Beach often referred … Continue reading Rip Curl Pro Search San Francisco Surf Contest
Rock bands that is. I needed a little Monday morning pick me up, so I figured I’d throw on an all time best. So many good things about this video no longer here: British Airways Concord; World Trade Center; sold out crowds packed in General Admission going nuts; Guns N’ Roses (I know, they’re here, … Continue reading They Just Don’t Build Them Like They Used To….
