Yes, These Pictures Really Are Republican Propaganda. We're Not Making This Up. 

The Republican Party wants you to know it's left no child behind

Wednesday, Jul 28 2004
Hey, kids! There's a presidential election approaching in November, and even though you can't vote yet, the Republican Party wants you to know it's left no child behind. To prove it, GOP activists are passing out "lifelike" portraits of the party's titans -- including former President Ronald Reagan, President George W. Bush, and action star/Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger -- at county fairs and other down-home events, encouraging children to color in the visage of a Great American (or Austrian). But you know Dog Bites' motto: Why should kids have all the fun? We're reprinting the portraits here for the benefit of San Francisco's considerable artistic community. While you're watching the Democratic National Convention this week, take up a crayon, draw in a background, or use the pictures to make your very own "Dennis Kucinich for President" sign, and make sure you show your friends! And show us, too, by sending us mail at or 185 Berry St., Suite 3800, San Francisco, CA 94107. We might even print the best of the batch. Have fun, but remember: No mustaches, please!

  • 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.'"
