Parrots were spotted in San Francisco's Bernal Heights neighborhood the other day, and why is this news, you ask? Because the usually loose-lipped psittacines had nothing to say for a change.

The Badass Bernalwood Press posted some footage of the colorful birds acting mellow and unbelievably taciturn. As the blog notes, the birds, which are known for their intelligence and ability to reflect your idiotic remarks, have been spotted in the neighborhood before -- and in a much more gossipy state.

But here they are acting cold and shut down:

The folks in Bernal Heights attributed the lack of communication around the bird feeder that day to political tensions. If that's the case, hopefully, this blog post will help break the awkward silence.

  • 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.'"
