SF Weekly Letters April 16-22, 2014 


Roll the Die

Satire is lost on reader: Clearly the creators of this game don't actually live in San Francisco, or they would know that only trash from the valley or tourists from the Midwest call it "Frisco" ["Frisco!: The Game: 'The Only Way to Win in San Francisco!', SF Weekly staff, feature, 4/9]. Unless the game is actually about the piss-ant town in Texas with the actual name Frisco.

This woman heeds help, not a plane ticket: She has some pretty serious issues ["Marilyn Hartman, Woman Arrested for Sneaking Onto Hawaii-Bound Flight, Busted at SFO Again," Erin Sherbert, the Snitch, 4/9]. So she gets to Hawaii, then what? It's really sad and she needs real help, not crowdsourced-Kickstarter funding idiocy.

Reader points to duplication in the Outside Lands lineup: What about the fact that a large portion of these performers have been in previous lineups ["Five Quick Thoughts on the Outside Lands 2014 Lineup," Ian S. Port, All Shook Down, 4/8]? With all the exciting acts touring these days, why did Outside Lands need to resort to duplicate bookings? Tom Petty was a headliner the first year, for starters.


Another reader sees the lineup differently: Great write-up! Totally agree with the writer's points (i.e. Tiesto is vom). I like the variety – Atmosphere, Spoon, Phosphorescent, etc. Been listening to Tedeschi Trucks Band all day.

One reader doesn't sympathize with the MacBook theft victim: Seriously, as if leaving a MacBook unattended in the middle of a cafe weren't bad enough, that cafe also happens to be in the Tenderloin ["Watch This Woman Steal a MacBook From a San Francisco Cafe," Erin Sherbert, the Snitch, 4/7]. Huge f'ing duh.


Another reader points to the fact a lesson can be learned from this: This is one of my biggest fears, which is why I never leave my Mac unattended! I hate blaming the poor girl who lost her valuable Mac, but come on — sad lesson that she had to learn. With that said, what a sneaky little thief, oh humanity.

The theft victim responds after the thief's capture: Thank you, SF Weekly. A courageous woman read this very article this morning and spotted this woman at a Starbucks in the FiDi. She followed her into the coffee shop and called the cops. She was arrested and currently is in police custody. Kudos to the courageous woman who went out of her way to get this woman brought to justice. Also, a million thanks to SF Weekly for publishing my story.

  • 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.'"
