Power Outage
Those in charge of San Francisco's power can't flip a switch: San Francisco's Public Utilities Commission Juliet Ellis gets busted for contracting corruption; now this story shows the agency's energy policy incompetence ["Who Has the Power," Joe Eskenazi, feature, 4/10]. The SFPUC is chock full of all kinds of turds!


Blog Comments of the Week
One large show is not necessarily better than two smaller shows: I know a lot of people who didn't go to the show because it was at Civic Center ["Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds Burn Through Quiet at Bill Graham Civic, 4/9/13," Ian S. Port, All Shook Down, 4/10]. Two nights at Warfield doesn't equal one night at Civic Center. They forgot to factor in the Bad Seeders [fans] who show up every night, like a disease. Also, great write-up. There is no such thing as a bad Bad Seeds gig.


Compliment from Obama shouldn't have been such a big deal: Terrible thing ["Kamala Harris: Is She Really the Nation's Foxiest AG?" Joe Eskenazi, the Snitch, 4/5]. I'll remember that when I'm about ready to compliment a woman about how good she looks today. In a world where being nice is no longer needed, why bother?


Another reader says Kamala Harris's beauty is only skin deep: No amount of superficial beauty can make up for the ugliness of her willingness to do anything (or anyone) to get ahead. She is also a horrible attorney as proven by her time in office in S.F. and at the state level. Also, Obama may find her attractive, but she was quite obviously left off his D.C. team after both of his elections. They like her raising funds for them, but they know she is a liability as a litigator.


Apparently semen cocktails seem very San Franciscan: He's based out of San Fransisco? What? Oh man, I am shocked ["Semen Cocktails: The Mixology of Man Sauce Is a Real Thing," Anna Roth, SFoodie, 4/4]! How completely uncharacteristic of the Bay Area!



In last week's article "Pushing Into New Territories" [news, 4/10] we stated the new Exploratorium is poised to be the first net energy zero building, in fact it will be the first net energy zero museum. SF Weekly regrets the error.

  • 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.'"
