List: Proposition 8 backers' new strategies 

Wednesday, Aug 11 2010

What strategies will defenders of Proposition 8 use in their appeal of last week's decision in federal court overturning 2008's anti-gay-marriage law?

• Point out that the word "gay" never appears in the Constitution

• Demand a do-over

• Call Jesus to testify — with a subpoena this time

• Come up with a better rhyme than "Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve"

• Write a country music song

• Send the appellate court judges videos of Gavin Newsom's "whether you like it or not" speech

• Get testimonials of even more concerned parents saying even more hateful things

• Request a venue change to the Vatican

• Demand an unbiased judge. Who hates gay people

• This time, they'll actually mount a case

• Hurry up and take control of Congress so they can derail this while there's still time

• Rewrite history

• Ask that evidence, of any kind, no longer be admissible

• Get cuter children to hold the God Hates Fags signs

  • 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.'"
