  • See, my problem with diamonds is that they aren't FUZZY...
So this nice guy I met once at a Stanford frat wanted to propose to his girlfriend. But he had a problem: His fiancee didn't like diamonds. Maybe not such a problem, you say, especially in these times, but still, he faced a certain crisis of the imagination.

So he decided to propose using a silver pipe-cleaner.

And then give his fiancee a new ring every day.

And blog about it.

Thus, we have ARingADay.com, which might have been named, Look at This Fucking Hipster Engagement Ring, except, well, it's pretty adorable.

Some day I'll repeat this story: yes, kids, back in the Great

Millennial Recession, things were tough. Instead of diamonds, we just

had pipe cleaners. And occasionally some yarn. But we didn't mind. We

were simple and clever and happy, and we blogged a lot. What's a blog?

Well, kids...

  • 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.'"
