Facebook Friend a Forgotten Fish

Facebook and Twitter can be so boring sometimes. It seems at times that the services exist for people to post pictures of their cats (no one cares) and bombard you with invites to horrible events (no one is coming). Which is why, in our opinion, you are better off following a blood-sucking fish. And depending on the quality of your friends -- it might not even be that big of a change.

@LunatheLamprey was started by the Fish and Wildlife Service in order to raise awareness about the steadily declining numbers of the Lamprey population. The West Coast fish live in rivers before migrating out to sea, but large numbers of their population die because of dams (damn you!).

This is, you know, interesting and all, and definitely worth learning about ... but honestly, we decided to become Facebook friends with Luna because if a fight breaks out it's always good to have backup that looks like this:

  • 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.'"
