I Want My Mommy 

Wednesday, Apr 23 2008
Are we in the middle of a baby boom? Are we in the middle of a "gayby boom?" It seems like there are babies everywhere. Whatever the case, Judy Norsigian, Executive Director of the Our Bodies, Ourselves world reads, signs, and discusses Our Bodies, Ourselves: Pregnancy and Birth, which you should not birth without. At a time in your life when everybody and yes, their mother wants to give you advice, it's probably a good idea to check out what level-headed feminist researchers with medical training have to say, first, and go from there. We're betting they're not going to give you the old "Peasant women used to just squat in the field and then go back to work!" line. Instead, look for reasonable nutrition data, information about choosing a doc, and hopefully, advice for the "He bit my chapped nipple and now I hate him" moments with your little bundle of joy.

  • 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.'"
