15th and Van Ness Condos: ‘You’ve shopped at the Apple Store, now live in one’

Reader J9 sends us this:

These weird developer people came by my apartment today telling me that were going to build a bunch of gross loft condos down the street from my apartment at 15th street and S. van ness.

Take a look here:http://www.1501-15thstreet.com/

These condos don’t even look inhabitable- the buildings look like weird Darth Vader office buildings.

In case you’re a part of the Rebel Alliance, there’s a meeting tonight where you can discuss your concerns with the lack of neo-Victorian detailing in these chic living obelisks. Maybe you can glance at the plans and locate an unshielded thermal exhaust port:

Come to the 1501 15th Street Neighborhood Meeting on Wednesday, July 6th, 2011. The meeting will be held in Annunciation Cathedral at 245 Valencia Street @ 14th Street.

The Empire appears to be trying to evade dissent by not posting an actual start time, but rest assured, we have a contacted them and will update with the relevant info when we get it.

Update: Meeting starts at 6pm

Star Wars Meets Día de los Muertos

Guera de Estrellas!  Noticed this over at jacobchills.com, who you may remember was responsible for the non-paparazzi shot of Dave Chappelle at Pakwan a while back.  Check out the rest of them here!

BTW, don’t forget to donate to the Dia de los Muertos non-profit because the city has raised permit fees and the organization is in a funding crisis!

Sad Vader Sighting

I was like, “Hey Sad Vader, why so glum?” And he was all, “Dude, read between the lines.”
