CREATURES?! why did you deface my building?!

elliott/ultrav /

One of you guys went and defaced my building, i realize to most people its no big deal. except my landlord is a bitch who gets mad at any little thing, she took my parking spot away due to mopeds, i get DPT called like every other day on my ped-- and mind you i like to think its not quite an eye sore of a ped at that matter--

the last thing i need is a sloth/gorilla spray painted in black on the ground-- whenever something goes wrong in the building i get blamed, and i have a feeling she will blame me for this as this is right in front of where i park my ped up to. I am not trying to have my living situation jeopardized right now.

"oh, your the oooooottthhheerr elliott"

im sick of hearing that, what the fuck does it mean!?

i wanna know who painted it there and why.. i got my own gang. creatures are cool, the rides are mad fun, the ones ive met have been super duper nice, friendly, helpful, etc..(for the most part)

but why paint the exact sidewalk/pole where my bike is always parked?

Re: CREATURES?! why did you deface my building?!

wait why did you lose your parking spot over a moped?

I have 3 peds and a motorcycle shoved into a parking spot with an honda accord. Talk about tetris. Glad my landlord isnt dickish by nature

Sorry Elliott, I bet it was random. I didn't hear about anyone doing it. Sorry it cost you your spot. You just bite the bullet and join up at this point.

Re: CREATURES?! why did you deface my building?!

Let me clarify.

I had a parking spot in the garage of my building and my landlord terminated the lease due to peds not fitting the mold of the building. Now I'm forced to park my hot lil mama on the street. I'm barely holding onto the only 2 poles in front of my building. I have constant complaints from my landlord and dpt for my peds being there. Now on top of that I have 2(another was found after further inspection) creature logos creeping around the poles I have rightfully claimed and I'm certain will result in more complaints.

Dan, I appreciate the apology but I want answers.

Pictures to come when I get home.

Re: CREATURES?! why did you deface my building?!

a lease is a binding contract park your peds in your spot and if your landlord removes them take him to court. dont get pushed around by people who think they can do what ever they want when they want. that lease is your salvation stick it to him.

Re: CREATURES?! why did you deface my building?!

haha, I guess you've been conscripted.

Re: CREATURES?! why did you deface my building?!

Stand up to your landlord. Turns out most of the time the law is on your side. DO research on it.

Re: CREATURES?! why did you deface my building?!

Dude, chilax

Tell your landlord its some animal rights group...

Re: CREATURES?! why did you deface my building?!

Really, honestly, if i lived in san fran and someone painted a creature logo on my parking spot id think i was pretty damn cool.

And id damn well say "of course im THAT elliot!"

Re: CREATURES?! why did you deface my building?!

crapsers, i'm sure no one was trying to be malicious and get you in trouble, just the same though that totally sucks.

i'll tell the little monkeys to keep their hands off your sidewalk/pole!

also, around these parts just telling your landlord they're wrong about stuff like that(even if they are)is kind of useless and i've been pretty lucky with my bikes so far, but mopeds in SF seem to be rental suicide in oh so many cases that i've seen.

i think its hard to understand the way of life for SFers, especially for ones with peds living in ritzy areas which have landlords which are trying to maintain a certain status quo for its tenants. its no slumlord situation, the rental group is well aware of the laws, and having more then 1 vehicle in a parking spot is breaking that agreement.

yes a mistake on my behalf but right now all i got is that 218 sidewalk code, which Mr. Paz was kind enough to share with me. Any sigh of oil or anything and i got DPT with bolt cutters! yikes.

ive had a sloo of broken sparkplugs, deflated tires, mangled wiring situations, stolen gas caps, unplugged gas lines, as well as airfilters punted to kingdomcom and now to see the creature monkeys?! it only makes me believe there is a creature fucking with my/as well as my friends peds-- and i dont live in an area frequented by crack heads either..

Re: CREATURES?! why did you deface my building?!

everyone in SF keep your hands off Elliot's pole!

Re: CREATURES?! why did you deface my building?!

i sincerely doubt that any creeatures are stealing your gas caps or fucking with your ped. someone probably just saw a ped and painted a logo. just tell your landlord you have no idea what it is. done and done.

Re: CREATURES?! why did you deface my building?!

You should move somewhere that sucks less. Now that I have my own garage, I could never go back.

Re: CREATURES?! why did you deface my building?!

elliot, sorry to hear about all of this.

I guess my perspective is that they probably did it because they like your bikes (you build awesome peds, dude), so if I were you, I would try (try) to take it as compliment. I doubt they were aware of your situation. I know it sucks for you, but try to be generous if you can, I am sure it wasn't malicious ...

hopefully, your landlady doesn't know what the graffiti means ....

I am looking to move this summer and not looking forward to it. It's getting more and more complicated to have mopeds in SF ...

such a sloppy stencil. people need to take pride in their stencils and avoid under/over spray!

Re: CREATURES?! why did you deface my building?!

dude, i'm sure if someone is fucking with your bike, they aren't going to leave a calling card, much less a creature logo to tie it back to them. and no way a creature is going to go to the trouble to fuck with another mopeders bike like that; we're too busy blasting and being drunk.

if it is getting complaints, it is probably one of those people. mopeds really piss people off for some reason. someone used to mess with my moped outside my work all the time (broken sparkplugs, obviously deflated tires) and it was a angry bike messenger because we were taking the spot she decided to claim as hers.

those creatures are all over the city. in fact there is spray-painted graffiti all over the city, it goes away after time. i had some outside my house and now you can't even see them. i'm sure soap and water would make it go away faster. sucks that you have a shitty landlord, but there's no way you should let her blame you for it.

Re: CREATURES?! why did you deface my building?!

what is the intent of the creatures by tagging where a ped is?

but this should be an easy fix. chances are your landlord doesnt recognize the creatures logo, and wont associate it with mopeds. tell him you dont know what it is, problem solved.

Re: CREATURES?! why did you deface my building?!

All you guys have valid points I won't discredit any of them. Landlord situation aside and yes, some soap and water, paint thinner, which ever one so pleases. I just feel like it was blaintent disrespect.

Well no matter, I most likely shouldn't have made such a big deal, and rather just went to the core of the situation, or just cleaned it up and moved on.

Re: CREATURES?! why did you deface my building?!

wait, did somebody deface the building or the sidewalk? it's been awhile since i've seen a new creature stencil applied. what hood do you live in?

Re: CREATURES?! why did you deface my building?!

problem solved.

Re: CREATURES?! why did you deface my building?!

ha

Re: CREATURES?! why did you deface my building?!

dude sidewalk means public property a landlord cant do shit about what happens on public property

Re: CREATURES?! why did you deface my building?!

i'd take it as a compliment. it's like giving props. haha

Re: CREATURES?! why did you deface my building?!

Wheres the beef?

Re: CREATURES?! why did you deface my building?!

Yes I realize it's an easy fix, I'm talking more about principle. Me and my crew always hang at my spot, our bikes are always outside. My bike is fairly reconizablr, doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out I live there. according to my landlord and DPT it's apparently my buildings sidewalk, even though it's on the sidewalk, it's apparently my buildings sidewalk.

I live in the soma, and it's freshly painted as of last night I believe? I've been on a few day hiatus so it may have been over the weekend. It's for sure new though.

Re: CREATURES?! why did you deface my building?!

i see a smiley face.

forget sloth, look out for the smiley face killers.

oh wait, your ok...the face is frowning, not smiling.
