Overthrow Capitalism! Maybe. 

Wednesday, Nov 5 2008
We are so confused. Partly, we were born that way. But also, at the moment, the s-word has us all, "Huh?" The McCain campaign, acting on a tip from not-Joe the not-Plumber, called Obama a socialist. Yet the far lefties we know call Obama "center-right." Still, Obama did use the phrase "spread the wealth around." But on the other hand, in our experience, Democratic Partiers are not at all the same as communalists. The Chicago Tribune quoted a sociology professor calling the President-elect "center-liberal." Whuuh?! At the Nor Cal Socialism Conference, people might be able to actually set us up with some answers. Like any conference, this one has about a million panels; pick and choose from labor history, immigration, and anti-war discussions. As for us, we're headed to "Democrats in Power," today at 3:45.

  • 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.'"
