Between the election and the super storm, this has been a pretty serious week in the news world. Thank god for Japanese farmer @konsai_umemama, who, upon discovering a daikon radish in his field that looked like a running person, decided to photograph it in various whimsical settings and post them on Twitter. Just a little comic relief for your Monday.

Now that you've thoroughly enjoyed that, you should probably read my breakdown of Prop 37, because tomorrow is Election Day. Radishes don't have voting rights, but you do!

  • 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.'"
