Gavin Newsom's benign betrayal 

Wednesday, Aug 12 2009

Gavin Newsom has recently repeated his claim — first made to The New York Times — that there's more to the story of his affair with Ruby Rippey-Tourk, the wife of his then-best friend, Alex Tourk. What more information could there possibly be?

• The sex wasn't very good.

• The world has not yet seen her real hair color.

• There's a sex tape: After showing brief intercourse, it's seven and a half hours of Gavin explaining how he's kept his promises.

• He pressed the panic button under his desk and she came in with a tray of Jell-O shots.

• They did it on Chris Daly's desk.

• It wasn't really Gavin. It was his evil twin brother, Nivag, who actually has some pretty good ideas about economic development and land use.

• The whole time, they were both thinking about Alex Tourk.

• The $10,000 Rippey-Tourk received from the city after her affair with the mayor wasn't a payoff, it was a gift.

• Newsom ended the affair after she asked him a question that hadn't been cleared by the press office first.

• Nobody's heard about his thing with her mom yet.

• He likes big butts and he cannot lie.

  • 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.'"
