Last week, we ever-so-slightly spat out some of our coffee when we noticed an interconnected conspiracy theory chart a la Lyndon LaRouche in our rival publication, the Bay Guardian. The graphic purported to reveal the vast cabal squelching progressive thought and action worldwide -- and it certainly does reveal something.  

While it's far from zany to point out that wealthy conservatives have many fishing poles in many ponds, once you start interconnecting "The Rothschilds," "British newspapers," "Richard Nixon," and "Spain" in some grand plot -- the cheese has neatly slipped off your cracker.

And yet, it gets worse. Not only is the Guardian convinced there's a worldwide conspiracy to strangle progressive thought -- there's also an international plot to undermine the Guardian! Atop this article is the flow chart prepared by Guardian higher-ups outlining the myriad forces in league against this thing of theirs -- which we obtained by slipping an old Muni pass and a signed glossy of Tom Wopat to one of the paper's unpaid interns.

  • 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.'"
