Happy Friday! Take a look at what we're reading, viewing, and gawking at online. 

Today is an unofficial holiday for fans of Mean Girls, the 2004 movie written by Tina Fey and starring Lindsay Lohan before she went blond. Why, you ask? Because "It's October 3rd." Time has a list of ways to celebrate that we think is so fetch. (Time)

WTF, these ducks are really violent. According to Wired, "These ducks have evolved mafia tactics." (Wired)

Remember when S.F. Supervisor London Breed made her Twitter account private after posting such gems as, "If you pay my salary, I want a raise to listen to your bullshit"? Looks like John Avalos is planning to carry the on the tradition of snarky supervisorial Tweets. This week, he had some strong words for the mayor and for City Hall's notorious bathroom photographer Michael Petrelis. (SFist, Twitter)
Although we like to think we're the best at tech-hating here on the West Coast, a New Yorker with a Tinder grudge is giving us a run for our money with this gem: "I don’t want children walking near 'Internet people' meeting." (DNAInfo)

Fans of the San Francisco Ballet are in for a treat. In honor of World Ballet Day, the ballet company just posted an epic four-hour video on YouTube that offers a glimpse at rehearsals for the upcoming season. Jump ahead to the 1:30:00 mark for full-on tutu magic. (YouTube

  • 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.'"
