SF Weekly Letters June 18-24, 2014 


Comic Book World

SF Weekly becomes comics, garners fans: Just want to thank the SF Weekly team and the collaborators for the terrific comics issue [Comics Issue, 6/11]. So smart, so varied, and so fun to hold in print to boot. Special claps for Ellen Wang and Max Wittert, illustrating the impossible! I hope you're all getting the praise you deserve.

Closing Time

Interesting story on the new suburban flight: This was a really interesting piece ["Queer Flight," Pete Kane, feature, 6/4]. Kind of wished there was a more direct comparison with other cities like Chicago or Houston (New York's demographics would be a bit off by sheer numbers). But good article regardless. Keep up the good work.


Another reader says S.F. will always be the place for queers: San Francisco will always be the safe ground for queers. All S.F. needs is an earthquake and all the techies and supposedly-straights will be running out like little girls. I remember Loma Prieta in '89, and I will stay here until my last day. If any person has a problem with it, then write the supervisors. Pride is coming and those new in town will feel the heat and I mean the queer heat.


Music for Money

Support artists by monetary means: I don't put much of my income into charity, [but] I love music ["Swimming Against the Stream," Ian S. Port, music, 6/4]. I buy albums from small artists I enjoy on purpose. Somebody has to support them. If a person wants good, independent music, buy a CD or download the album straight from the band, and/or buy their T-shirts. They need to eat and sleep in a good bed just like everyone else!


Blog Comments of the Week

Just a bunch of man-babies: What actual work is there left to do, other than design at this lazy office ["San Francisco Firm Seeks "Girl Friday" to Cook Their Paleo Diets, Do Everything Else," Joe Eskenazi, the Snitch, 6/12] Bunch of man-babies at that office, and only a part-time job, hardly worth it. And of course, Paleolithic peoples did not eat anything like Paleo diets.


Art moves out for housing: I remember seeing this when I first moved to the city 12 years ago and thought it was pretty neat ["Flying Furniture: Brian Goggin's Art Piece 'Defenestration' Evicted," Juan De Anda, the Exhibitionist, 6/11]. I'm sad to see it go, but it's probably good that they're fixing up the building and using it for something.

In "Swimming Against the Stream," [Ian S. Port, Music, 6/4] we misspelled Suzana Barbosa's name. SF Weekly regrets the error.

  • 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.'"
