  • Coloring for Grown-Ups

Remember college? Yeah, we didn't think so.

Ryan Hunter and Taige Jensen, the masterminds behind the viral YouTube video "Movie Title Breakup" as well as the creators of Coloring for Grown-Ups Holiday Fun Book, have created their third adult coloring book, Coloring For Grown-Ups College Companion.

Filled with goodies like a perforated "Walk of Shame" mask (pg. 25) and a beer bong maze (pg. 30), this book can be used to relive some of your finest (definition debatable) college moments, or you can be the cool aunt/uncle and give it to your recent high school graduate niece or nephew to prepare them for the next four years. Or 5-7 years, depending on how realistic the "Flush Your Life Down The Toilet!" maze (pg. 37) turns out to be.

In addition to coloring activities such as "Where's My Tuition Going?" (pg. 44), Coloring for Grown-Ups College Companion features games such as "Quad Bingo" (pg. 5), "Fun Activities For Passing The Time While Your Roommate Has Sex In Your Room" (which includes a Sudoku puzzle, pg. 7), and a "What Are My Priorities?" word search (pg. 35).

Solutions are listed in the back of the book--apparently there are right and wrong answers to the "Pressure Your Peers" match-up activity ("simulate the college experience by matching each peer to his or her most susceptible form of social pressure!," pg. 32).

Every page is perforated so you can tear out your masterpieces and hang them on the wall of your dorm or what have you (haven't you always wanted your very own College Diversity Poster? Turn to pg. 20).

Complete with both an "Adulthood Certificate" (pg. 52) and a "Slacker Diploma" (56), as well as a "Realistic Emergency Contact Sheet" (pg. 53), which includes the extremely useful "drunk dial do not call list."

If you never got the chance "design your own sadistic, vaguely homoerotic hazing ritual" (p. 45) in college, then this is the coloring book for you.

Also, there will be a Coloring for Grown-Ups app released for iPhone and iPad this Thursday, May 1.

  • 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.'"
