Grow the Hell Up 

Wednesday, Apr 8 2009
Young people! It is understandable that you assume black and white movies are boring. Youth equals stupidity, after all. No, srsly: If you have not seen My Little Chickadee, you're stupid. It's like if you thought cake was boring, or sexual intercourse. If you have not seen several Mae West movies, you are holding yourself apart from one of the really genuinely nice things that can happen to a live human adult, unless you don't like dialogue such as: He: "Aren't you forgetting that you're married?" She: "I'm doin' my best." Plus, it's time to scrap the whole idea that black and white movies are boring, because that is for children. At Five Buck Tuesdays, well, you can probably figure out what happens with that, no matter how young you are.

  • 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.'"
