Shit Baristas Say: A Little Self-Mockery on the Coffee Frontier

Posted By on Tue, Jan 17, 2012 at 7:30 AM

Mere seconds before the "Shit X says" meme goes the way of the Pomplamoose cover, the irreverent coffee-culture bloggers at have made a "Shit Baristas Say" video, filmed at Four Barrel and starring Ian Hunter Anderson, one of its actual, genuine baristas. 

"We have cream and sugar out but they're just props." "Actually, I only serve this in ceramic." "Where's my Washed Out album?" It's a hell of a lot funnier than the "Shit Southern Gay Guys Say" and almost, but not quite as, true to life as "Shit White Girls Say to Black Girls." And for those of you worried about whether your barista is mocking you, if you hear any of these things coming out of his/her mouth, you're not being paranoid.

  • 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.'"
