Benjamin Wachs' New Year's Resolutions 

Wednesday, Jan 7 2009

• Get away with murder. What's the SFPD going to do, catch me?

• Crush Mayor Gavin Newsom by talking about San Francisco for nine hours straight.

• Remember that the barista in the organic coffee shop does not like me better with my shirt off.

• Find a more environmentally sound alternative to water, and put it in plastic bottles.

• Improve my reading skills by watching more movies based on books.

• Give more money to the needy by buying newspapers.

• Illegally download only good music.

• Go back to the San Francisco Zoo. If we don't go back to the zoo, the tigers have won.

• Laugh at New College graduates even harder.

• Use Twitter to work through my difficult family issues in increments of 140 characters or fewer.

• Hate whomever the progressives tell me to.

• Try very hard to take the city's supervisors as seriously as they take themselves.

• Fail to rezone the Eastern Neighborhoods.

• Keep telling myself that Burning Man is about the art.

• Spend more time with my loved ones online.

  • 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.'"
