More Proof Caffeine = The Devil

Long after the religious right bans legal abortion, we'll still have Philz Coffee to turn to.

The Chron published an Oakland HMO today study correlating caffeine in early pregnancy to miscarriage - probably because, I don't know CAFFEINE is a PESTICIDE.

So, if you're in high school and you got that HPV vaccine but you forgot that condom and you're late - now you know what to ask for: "Double espresso, side order of chocolate covered espresso beans. ... And a lot of napkins." - David Downs

  • 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.'"
