Wandering down Terry Francois Boulevard and hanging a left at the distillery, one ambles into an open, airy warehouse. Walking through the warehouse, one comes face to face with ... another warehouse! Finally, you hit the water. And there you discover the above: An old car seat with a million-dollar view and an exercise bike bolted to the waterfront.

Port of San Francisco personnel confirmed that the bike is, indeed, a well-used bit of municipal property. But just in case anyone was wondering, this outdoor stationary cycle is branded with the city's mark:

It's unclear whether the evident wear and tear on the cycle is due to health fanatacism by Port employees or the fact that the sucker is bolted to the railing and, therefore, kept outside during rainy weather.

Perhaps it's a bit of Column A and a bit of Column B.

  • 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.'"
