Spike and Mike Are Gorked! 

Wednesday, May 7 2008
People who take drugs are funny! Like that kid in Santa Cruz who police described as "gorked" on acid recently. Because get it? The cop knew drug lingo! Then there's the recent movie, Super High Me, in which a comedian gets all stoned. At Spike and Mike's Sick & Twisted Festival of Animation, you'll find a huge lineup of the fest's signature gross-out animated short films, including one about drugs, Home Honey, I'm High. This craaazy 1950s-style comedy looks hand-drawn, sketchily, and the premise is "Ozzie and Harriet get high, often, as do their children." The housewife keeps large jars marked "Hash," etc., on her kitchen counter, and the family enjoys watching the Donna Weed Show on T.V. They're gorked! But other things are funny at Spike and Mike's too, like death, especially being buried alive in fest favorite Happy Tree Friends' Can't Stop Coffin. Don't forget, these are the guys we have to thank for the existence of the Simpsons, and by extension, the ones to blame for American Dad.

  • 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.'"
