Forget the Zuckerberg mask -- be a whole damn tech company for Halloween. Here's how.

Apple

How to dress:

Wear all white with silver shoes. Limit your ports: No pockets, no fly. Your hair should be seamless.

 

How to scare people:

Jailbreak your pants.

 

The night's over when:

You call your dad and FaceTime your ass; you're holding a kitten in the iPhone death grip; you prematurely rushed your product to market, or rather your ejaculate to Margaret.

Facebook

How to dress:

Wear blue. Put your thumb out. You don't look like a dork at all.

 

How to scare people:

Hold up vacation pictures and scream, "I love Sundays!" Literally bore people to terror. 

 

The night's over when:

You're collecting personal information from Cabana Boy Rum; you poked the wrong ass at the wrong time; you're playing Farmville in a litter box; you forgot to opt-out of vomiting in the candy bowl.

Twitter

How to dress:

Wear anything revolutionary, like leg warmers.    

 

How to scare people:

Rescream everything you saw on Parker Spitzer.

 

The night's over when:

Someone just bought you; you haven't been talking to the real Danielle Staub at all; you've gone long-form with a party girl from Tumblr; you realize the girl you're following home is following someone else home who's following you home, and nobody will get off MUNI.

Google

How to dress:

Bedazzle "I'm feeling lucky" on the ass of a fat suit.

 

How to scare people:

Finish every conversation with an hour of porn.

 

The night's over when:

The car is driving itself; you just bought the Twitter geek; you're trying to digitize a book of matches; you're shitting money and holding the proof.

  • 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.'"
