San Francisco Chronicle columnists Matier and Ross should update the casting book for their "Movie of the Week" feature; last Sunday, they cast the very much dead Telly Savalas as Milton Friedman in Three Men and an Economy. ... Likewise, the Examiner needs to rewrite the subscription promo that appeared in the Sunday funnies that hypes only-in-the-Examiner features such as "The Insiders -- poliltics [sic]!" "The Insiders" was spiked in December and was recently replaced with "The Outsider." ... The July 10 San Francisco Bay Guardian contains no fewer than 19 self-references ("told the Bay Guardian," etc.), down from the personal best of at least 27 recorded in the July 5 issue. (The nearly universal convention is to credit other periodicals when borrowing a quote and use the more modest "says" or "said" when a source talks directly to a publication.)

  • 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.'"
