We're a little late in slogging through our all-too-heaping stack 'o journalism, but we couldn't resist sharing Roz Chast's deadpan (pun intended) take in the red-white-and blue October 13th New Yorker (the Politics Issue (but aren't they all politics issues?), on what the economy is serving up for us.

There's Rare-Treat potatoes ("Six sweet potatoes, One can crushed pineapple, Your retirement account; Mix everything together. Bake until the account is completely melted."), Cranberry Surprise ("Two pounds cranberries, One cup stock certificates, torn into teeny bits, Cinnamon and sugar, to taste; Cook until everything is softened. Serve."), and my favorite, Turkey Stuffed with Seven Hundred Billion Dollars ("Large turkey, Seven hundred-billion-dollar bills, crumpled; Place the crumpled bills inside the turkey. Roast until all that remains is a pile of ashes. Enjoy!").

Not quite Norman Rockwell. Freedom from want, indeed! --Meredith Brody

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
