  • In which the Governator asks Brian Wilson to be on his Brain Trust

We noted earlier that even Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger -- who grew up in an era before baseball expanded past the Mississippi (and to Austria) -- is hip to "The Machine."

Schwarzenegger is also our favorite political user of Twitpics. Any photograph featuring Arnold is decidedly surreal -- and the captions are often utterly hilarious (especially when read aloud in an Arnold voice). So, without further ado, here's your two-term governor and a bemused Brian Wilson from Schwarzenegger's Twitter feed.

Actually, there are numerous wonderful shots in Schwarzenegger's trove:


Here's a shot of Arnold explaining the state budget to his chocolate lab, Gustav. From this we find out that the governor enjoys using dogs as humorous props. And he has a dog named Gustav.

Arnold actually bought this sweatshirt.

Arnold hobnobs with FDR and fellow cigar aficionado, Winston Churchill.

And, finally, Moscow subway commuters were in for a treat not long ago...

  • 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.'"
