There Is No Divine Right to Comment on the Internet

The Onion lately has taken to occasionally just telling the truth, more or less, and those articles are usually every bit as good as any other Onion story. On Monday, there was one titled "Tea Party Congressman Listens To Constituent…

Snapchat: Another Instance of Well-Financed Tech Inanity

I haven't paid much attention to Snapchat because really -- who gives a rat's ass? As far as I knew, it was some app for creeps to send people pictures of their wangs. Yet another one, I mean, because that's…

Bang With Friends Has a New Name, and It's Still Ridiculous

The "Bang With Friends" Facebook app -- which supposedly facilitates casual sex among the morons who use it -- has cleaned up its act and changed its name. Oh, it's still a skeevy app that was created and is used…

Business Insider Fires Horrifying CTO, But Is Still Terrible

  • 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.'"
