Bernie Ward got spanked by a dominatrix, and not in a sexy way. Ward made a big mistake when he decided to send pictures of child pornography to a dom who frequents chat rooms under the name Sexfairy 2005, says the Chronicle today.The former KGO-AM radio talk show host told the dom that he was a divorced priest from Manteca who liked "trading pictures." He then promptly sent the woman several photos depicting minors, ages 4-17, in sexual settings. Sexfairy alerted the Oakland police to Ward's icky proclivities and they subsequently contacted the FBI. A grand jury slapped Ward with two counts of possessing and distributing child pornography using the Internet. Ward used the "I'm writing a book" excuse, claiming that he was role playing for a tome about hypocrisy. Well, then, there's a special place in hell for intrepid book researches. Hats off to Sexfairy, wherever she is. May she continue putting a sex positive, sunny face on kink as opposed to a pasty, sinister one. –Andy Wright

  • 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.'"
