Porn Hacker Single-Handedly Revolutionizes Marin Transit Site

Finally, someone has combined the banal world of city transportation regulation with online pornography. A European hacker hijacked the Transportation Authority of Marin Web site last year, directing visitors to the "best totally nude photos" instead of transit updates. Fixing the site will cost the city $25,000 plus $6,000 a year to maintain, according to an article in yesterday's Marin Independent Journal. The hack caused feds to squeal, jump up on a chair, and wave their arms around, shutting down every state Web site for a period of several hours on Oct. 2. They now admit they were "probably using a shotgun to kill a flea." Why is Marin even shelling out this kind of cash? If I had a dollar for every morning I hopped on the computer and thought, "Transit update or porno? Transit update or porno?" I'd have about $4.25. Pay the hacker a consulting fee and give the people what they want, the best totally nude TAM board meeting minutes. — 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.'"
