Remember Hey Faggot?

Savage Love, the wildly popular sex column by Dan Savage, the editorial director of Seattle's alt-weekly The Stranger, is not just smart and egalitarian — it's also grammatical. Savage Love has been, for 17 years, a gold standard for writing of all kinds, not just for snarky advice columns. Savage’s responses to genuine and genuinely bizarre questions are honest (he was in favor of the war, for a while), intelligent (aka witty), and open-minded (he engages in sincere conversations with people whose opinions he does not like). So while "HIO," or "honest, intelligent, and open-minded" is not as catchy as Savage's famous advice for lovers — to be "GGG" or "good, giving, and game" — it's still something we may all strive toward, inspired by this profane contrarian. Savage appears with fellow advice columnist and controversy-starter Amy Richards in conversation with Steven Winn.

  • 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.'"
