Who Knows What Darkness Lurks in the Hearts of Men? 

Wednesday, Oct 22 2008
Feature films and television series can't stop sucking on the "CIA operative" teat; it was probably that way with cave paintings, so great is the human desire to know what it's like to be a CIA operative. But if you want to know what it's REALLY like to be a CIA operative, you can see this evening's lecture, "Iran’s Grip on America’s Future," by Robert Baer. Also, if you've ever played the game "Who Would Play You in the Movie of Your Life," and you've said "George Clooney," you may want to check out Baer's talk, because he could play that game in the past tense -- he's billed as "the man behind Syriana." He wants to talk about Iran. We should probably stop playing WWPYitMoYL? and listen.

  • 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.'"
