Market Street Waterworld

The 2500 block of Market Street is afloat with water, due to the flocking of mermaids into their underground caves for winter hibernation.

Beware that the street may be dangerous to drive on. Should you find any lost mermaids, please call the City of Oakland Mythology Patrol. Any stray mermaids and sirens will be returned to the wild, so that they can attempt re-flocking.

The mermaid caves are under the San Pablo Avenue - Market Street crossroads. This accounts for many uncanny phenomena seen in that area.

If you miss this, you're crazy


The West Oakland Neighborhood Fair is on Saturday May 7th from 1 to 4 PM at St. Vincent de Paul Community Center, San Pablo Avenue at West Grand Avenue.

Why you need to be there: our amazing, enterprising, creative, rocking neighbors have sought and received over $350 000 for revitalization and beautification projects for our neighborhood, and you can learn all about them and how you can become involved!

• $73,000. West Oakland Green Initiative will plant trees along San Pablo
Avenue and in the surrounding areas.
• $75,000. The San Pablo Corridor Coalition will renovate St. Andrew’s Plaza.
• $75,000. Oakland Public Works will install motion activated devices with
24/7 monitoring against illegal dumping.
• $75,000. Attitudinal Healing will paint beautiful murals along the I-580
underpass between San Pablo Avenue and Martin Luther King, Junior Way
• $5,000. Keep Oakland Beautiful will enhance San Pablo Avenue.
• $50,000. The Crucible will get a new entry and facade improvements
• EBALDC’s progress in the revitalization of California Hotel.

Did you see that?! They are going to start monitoring the trash dumping in our neighborhood! Those idiots are finally going to be getting in trouble, without our neighbor Randy having to drive around after them to scare them!

So really: if you ever thought about becoming more active about neighborhood stuff and wondered who the people are who are doing all the moving and shaking, this is your time! You can become one of them! And you may start getting invited to those fabulous secret cocktail parties you may have been hearing about!

Most importantly, if you come to the Neighborhood Fair you will see what beautiful, fun, caring, sweet, fantastic people you share a neighborhood with.

Celebrating Nordic Family Values: The Woolen Penis Movie

It's been a while since we celebrated my Nordic heritage here on Myrtle Street Review. It's time to watch some Swedish art, specifically, the Flying Woolen Penises of Sweden. The rest of the baffling, fabulous output of Amauta Labs can be found here.

Here are the pothole portals and temporary graffiti on day 3 since they appeared. Sands of time, shells of souls.
