Open season on drivers 

Wednesday, Jan 19 2011

Because of a budget shortfall, city officials are tightening traffic regulations and have told parking cops to issue more tickets. What can people now be ticketed for?

• Failure not just to "observe" a stop sign, but to really look at it and take it in

• Thinking about answering a cellphone

• Parking in a parking zone

• Not bicycling righteously enough

• Flatulence

• Texting while driving, walking, or leaning

• Even considering a towaway zone

• Laughing at people on Muni

• Failure to parallel park "like you mean it"

  • 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.'"
