“Fantastic” Muni voyage

Cute, cool, rad, awesome, bitchin’ … I could go on, but I’ll just step back and let Muni rider Beth take over:

Normally I don’t like loud music on the bus, or funk, but an old dude was blasting this today and singing along and saying “welcome aboard!” to new passengers and it was kind of perfect.

I take issue with Beth’s use of “kind of” here, but that’s just me being all literal and shit.

Have a great weekend, fellow Muni voyagers!

Muni bus goes back to the future …


*Deep breath*

Ahhhhh … remember when? When, you ask? Back when we eagerly upgraded from clunky (but oh-so-awesome) Walkmans and Discmans to Apple’s shiny, sleek, magical “iPod”? Back when, well, first of all, back when we read books. And there were these dinosaurs roaming our cityscape called “bookstores.” And we could morph into Scully or Mulder with a freakin’ flappin’ flip-phone.

Those were the days, indeed.

Muni rider Jack rode a 6-Parnassus last week and his bus had ads for ALL. OF. THE. ABOVE. A true mobile museum, that.

If you had to peg a date for these ads, what would your guess be? Mine is late-2004. Like, maybe right after Bush the Younger was re-(but really for the first time)-elected*.

Jack says:

I saw these ads on a 6-Parnassus yesterday. Yep, in 2016. It hit me right in the feels. If you’ll excuse me, I’ll be listening to From Under The Cork Tree.

Thanks, Jack!

Dept. of Oops: J-Church turns onto Market Street


File this one under “things being where they’re not supposed to be.”

Via the Muni Diaries Facebook page, Muni rider Jack sends this:

Hey Muni Diaries, my brother sent me this photo of a J-Church Breda car that accidentally turned right onto Market yesterday. It makes you wonder—after the new trains come, will the Bredas be historical F-line material?

Today becomes tomorrow’s yesterday. Or something.
