SF Weekly Letters May 7-13, 2014 


Out of Tune

Just a bunch of hipsters talking about hipsters: Hipster transplants being valorized by slightly less hipster transplants ["Puppet Maestros," Byard Duncan, feature, 4/30]. Yep. SF Weekly to a T.


Birds and Basketball

A look at the creatures that call the new Warriors' location home: Good observations, appreciate the insight ["Migratory Patterns," Joe Eskenazi, news, 4/30]. Hopefully generations down the road will appreciate the Warriors Stadium and the sacrifices made by Mother Nature and her fine feathered friends.


The Dating Game

Guys need to refocus on what's important: Someone's always "gaming" the system of gullible idiots with money ["One-Night Standoff," Valerie Demicheva, news, 4/30]. I'm an ugly dude, and can testify to the fact that these "self-help" dating crash courses don't work. What does work is doing what you love — going outside, and being in public; showering, shaving, and exhibiting a sense of self-confidence, not some "game." Plus, the main example shown here, the "leader," has been divorced thrice!? What the hell? So if the game is to get the best girlfriend possible, it's just that? More moronic men bagging women, posting notches on their bedpost, and bragging about conquests? Yeah, that's what society needs right now, more chimps that can shave. But again, who cares, right? Guys like me, or anyone with an adverse opinion on the matter aren't heralded as iconoclasts, no. It's the guy with the weird hair and a "new" way to pick up chicks (so he says), who gets the feature. This passes as lifestyle, news, and important? Meanwhile women are jailed for having miscarriages in Latin America, but this dude, this idiot is what gets coverage?


Blog Comments of the Week

Swingers never change: It was the same way, in the swinging '70s ["Survey Reveals Conservative Couples More Interested In Swinging Than Liberal Couples," Jessica Nemire, the Exhibitionist, 5/1]. The good old conservative boys and girls at the Golf and Country Club were the ones who threw their house keys in the punch bowl at the end of the night, while Mr. and Mrs. Progressive went home to their kids.


Recipe doesn't add up: Followed the recipe last evening, and want to ask you to check with Blue Plate ["Restaurant Recipe: The Blue Plate's Meatloaf," Omar Mamoon, SFoodie, 4/24]. 1. There is a lot of liquid in the recipe and the mixture was very mushy and loose, which is true of the finished result too. Please check that the liquids are correct. Perhaps it needs more bread crumbs? 2. The recipe is extremely spicy. I don't remember this quality when I dined at Blue Plate. Are the proportions of Dijon, cayenne, Worcestershire, and Tabasco correct? Thanks.

  • 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.'"
