Daly City vs. 0x000ASan Francisco

Should I stay or should I go?: Wow, this is such a horrible article. Who cares if Daly City doesn't have "San Francisco's flair" ["The New San Francisco," Andrew M. Dalton, News, 2/5]? That's what makes them different; that is why Daly City is not part of San Francisco. The writer starts off the article as if Daly City is a promising place to live, and then ends it with it's not that great. So what exactly is the point of this article? It doesn't make any sense.


Suburban draw: Daly City is better than Oakland. That's coming from a native San Franciscan that loves living in the Sunset. Yes, the Sunset is part of the city [but is close to Daly City]; a place to park and no bridge toll sounds pretty damn good.

Suburban crawl: No city compares to San Francisco. Daly City is just convenient living away from the beautiful hectic San Francisco, but it's no fun. The cost of living is almost the same, but the wages are super low. Daly City needs to step their game up!

Article misses the point: Wow, the critic seems to have missed the point completely ["'Fresh Off The Boat' Misses the Mark," Katy St. Clair, the Exhibitionist, 2/5]. The show is funny because the acting is good and the timing is perfect. Like My Big Fat Greek Wedding, or any other ethnic-centered humor, it [shows how it's] hard to be an outsider, but having a loving family will not only get you through, but make the journey enjoyable.


Show is, like, laugh-out-loud hilarious: In my opinion, ["Fresh Off the Boat" is] a terrible title for the show. That being said, I respectfully disagree with the author. I was born in Vietnam and grew up in Nebraska and I found the show hilarious, like, laugh-out-loud hilarious. There were definitely moments in the show that I felt I had also experienced growing up. So even though it's not perfect I think it's a huge step forward in putting Asian American stories into the mainstream. The fact that there is a show that is actually reflecting my own experiences back to me is, well, a very rare and welcomed experience.

Lopdided and sarcastic: I can't find where the writer mentions Julian Shatkin's name, and he is absolutely amazing in this movie, and her mention of Debra Messing's character is confusing ["Billie Joe Armstrong Is Now an Actor or Something," Emma Silvers, All Shook Down, 2/4]. This whole review is a bit hard to follow. I wanted to follow it, but it seems lopsided and a bit sarcastic and is missing information. This movie brings to life some great characters and everyone worked hard and did a great job.

  • 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.'"
