  • FasTrack? No, let's take it slow...
If someone asks you what you're wearing when you phone up FasTrak with queries about your bill -- there's a good reason for that.

In perhaps the most fantastically entertaining transit-related story not involving blow-up dolls being used as carpool commuters, locals dialing up FasTrak were shocked to reach a porn sex talk line: "Hot amateur talk and voice personals, for 99 cents a minute." ("Uhhhh, I drove across the Carquinez Bridge on Monday, and..." "YES! YES! THAT IS SO HOT! MORE!")

Red-faced officials with the Metropolitan Transportation Commission quickly figured out what was going on: If you were a FasTrak early adopter -- "YES! YES! THAT IS SO HOT!" -- the helpline number on your device is, er, no longer valid. Any FasTrak issued after 2002 has the correct number:

  • 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.'"
