Scott Wiener Is Too Big For His Desk

We noticed that freshman Supervisor Scott Wiener didn't look so comfortable during his first Board of Supervisors meeting, mostly because he wasn't fitting in -- literally.

The 6-foot-7 supervisor will be spending many long hours behind a desk that makes him look like an adult in a child's chair. 

We had to ask him how he plans to manage doing his job in an ergonomically unfriendly environment.

"It's fine, I'm getting used to it," Wiener said. "Nothing ever quite seems to fit the way it's supposed to -- airplane, a desk or a car."

After all,  how far-fetched is it that an inability to fit into a desk in the Board of Supervisors' chambers would become a massive, expensive, long-lasting municipal problem? Er, don't answer that.

Finally, to answer the enormous question you were all wondering: No, Wiener cannot dunk a basketball.

  • 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.'"
