Happy Thursday! Have a look at what we're reading, viewing, and gawking at on the internet. We'll see you back here on Monday. Happy 4th of July!

We came across one of our early slideshows: San Francisco at night. Kinda spooky.

It's not open yet, but a POV video of a ride down the world's tallest and fastest water slide gives you an idea of the terrifying drop:

This is a pretty cool GoPro drone video over Twin Peaks (even if you aren't into skateboarding):

  • 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.'"
