CNET reports that today is Square Root Day since the month and day (number 3) are both the square root of the year (09). The holiday is credited to a Redwood City teacher named Ron Gordon, and, according to the story, "celebrants are expected to mark the occasion by cutting root vegetables into squares or preparing other foods in the shape of the square root symbol." Get chopping those veggies today, folks, because the next Square Root Day isn't until April 4, 2016. The one after that: May 5, 2025.

  • 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.'"
