Getting Off Scot Free 

Wednesday, Jan 16 2008
Having recently watched Saving Grace, we've had Craig Ferguson on the brain. Ferguson wrote and starred in the film, which concerns the fun to be had in combining sweet little old ladies and high-grade marijuana. Anyone who worked in theaters when it first came out can tell you it's extremely popular among sweet little old ladies. But Ferguson is of course best-known for being the unfailingly funny and thoughtful host of The Late Late Show. He's probably second-best known for impersonations of Sean Connery and Michael Caine. Although Scottish (Glaswegian, to be exact), Ferguson enjoys stating repeatedly that he loves the U.S. of A., and he's on a campaign to become an Honorary Citizen of all U.S. states and cities. Perhaps Mayor Newsom will make Ferguson an H.C. of S.F. He wrote a whole movie about bud -- many of us merely live in a movie about bud. We could really use a guy like Ferguson around here, Gav!

  • 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.'"
