This example of geolocational fail is from an iPhone app called Sex Offender Search, which, thanks to Megan's Law, allows you (quasi-legal) mobile access to a database of sex offenders.

Due to the unintentional hilarity of the GPS notification above, the makers of the app, LogSat Software, might want to consider hiring a copywriter. Or perhaps a lawyer.

  • 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.'"
