Weekly Obsessions 

Things we were obsessing about on April 20, 2005

We'd heard about the wonders of kayaking Elkhorn Slough, but when we stopped the wind was up, and visions of being trapped, upside down in ice-cold water, filled our claustrophobic brain. Luckily, the Kayak Connection at Moss Landing employs the soothing and expert Larry Wagner, who explained everything about how to safely kayak the slough, where our 7-year-old companion swears he saw 32 sea otters. And when our car wouldn't start afterward, it was the soothing Larry who came out to the parking lot, gave us a jump, and sent us, expertly, on our way. J.M.

Of course we'd tune in to a PBS series called The Meaning of Food. And of course we'd enjoy it, because it's a buffet of short takes on food and life/family/culture. But to our surprise we've spent quite a bit of time on the excellent Web site,, because it has lots of interesting stories that didn't make it onto the show -- complete with recipes. M.B.

  • 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.'"
