Dear San Francisco, I love you for many reasons, but mainly because you attract people who dress like this as a casual, everyday part of their lives. Good job.

Seriously though, where do you even find a shearling coat like that? It's incredible. I feel sort of bad comparing her to Lady Gaga because she probably gets that a lot, but she vividly reminds me of her. And Lady Gaga is a pretty flattering person to be told you look like, right? This photo also made me think of another street style photographer, The Sartorialist, who did photograph Lady Gaga. He spotted her in New York before she was famous, and when he photographed her, she told him something along the lines of, "You'll be hearing more about me one day." He had to hold back laughter at the time, but I'm sure he's not laughing now. Anyway, I'm thinking about that for two reasons: One, she looks a lot like that vintage Gaga picture, and two, what if someday she's famous and we all look back on this photo in awe? I have a feeling it's going to happen.

  • 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.'"
