No Toilet Paper, No Peace 

The Porta Potti Arsonist speaks.

Wednesday, Jan 21 2009

Over the past two months, an unknown arsonist has set ablaze 18 portable toilets around the city. This week, SF Weekly received a letter from the mysterious firestarter — who calls himself "The Burning Man" — with a list of demands:

This is the Burning Man speaking. I am the one burning down all the disgusting portable shitters. If you want this to stop, here's what must be done:

Potpourri in every Porta Potti. Porta Pourri, if you will.

All of S.F.'s outhouses must better represent the rich cultural diversity of the city's heritage.

Give us cleaner streets to pee on.

If inconsiderate jerks keep refusing to light a match after going number two, I will be forced to keep lighting my blowtorch.

Provide affordable housing for low-income arsonists.

Get me a date with Cindy Sheehan.

Gavin Newsom must light a fart on YouTube.

End all hatred, violence, and oppression — by Thursday.

Free Mumia!

  • 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.'"
