America, you've GONE TOO FAR. It's one thing for you to make an American-health-care-hating Canuck our national obsession. But to pay $40,000 for some of Justin Bieber's hair scraps is crossing the line. I've had enough!

eBay won't reveal who the winning bidder was, but the second coming of Justin Timberlake appeared on the Ellen show, hair in hand, for Ellen Degeneres to hawk on her eBay account. The bidding started on February 26 and ended yesterday, with the winner dropping $40,688 on these Anti-American locks. Apparently, the money will go to some charity that lets kids play with cows or something (great!). 

But seriously, what do you do with the chopped off hair of some 16-year-old kid? Build some sort of Voodoo shrine? Implant it into your own scalp? Show it to people? It's all seriously creepy if you ask me.

  • 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.'"
