Remember how L. Ron Hubbard invented Scientology on a bet? Well, he didn't really invent it so much as he may have copied it from a 1934 German book called Scientologie. Scans of the book are making their way across the internet. The text makes about as much sense as Scientology itself: "The natural substance lets itself further combine with the form-elements of space and time. We receive then: 1. A space-substance: matter 2. a time-substance: power 3. a space-time-substance: movement." Mmmmmmmwhat? –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.'"
