The Republican National Committee has been conducting some research to figure out how to talk to women and African Americans without immediately pissing them off. Wonkette posted a survey sent out to college students today, and it's pretty awesome. And by "awesome" I mean "wildly offensive." The survey consists of statements that takers can agree or disagree with. Innocuous statements like "We should let people control their own retirement; privatize Social Security" are peppered with "Many women are actually seeking special favors, such as hiring policies that favor them over men, under the guise of "equality."" Dammit, they've figured out our strategy, sisters! Back to the Ovo-Cave of Manhatera! Then there's this one: "I feel threatened when interacting with Black people." I'm trying the to picture who read that statement, furrowed their brow, and then dutifully filled in the bubble under "Neither agree nor disagree."–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.'"
