Have you heard about how America is doomed to stagnate under the burden of its aged? By 2050, one out of five people in this country will be over 65, and likely fending off hungry hordes of third-world youths.

But the LA Times now says about one out of four Chinese will be over 65 in 2050. Hah! F-you, China! Your tiger ball ointment longevity technique is no match for our Viagra pills and fMRIs. We will own you! -ed

  • 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.'"
