Young Federico 

Wednesday, Feb 25 2009
It's a great mystery of the world: Who removed Federico Fellini's shame? Who implied to him that it would be OK to make movies featuring butt after fetishized, wiggling lady-butt? This message was clearly received by the filmmaker at a young age; one has to suspect it was his mother who encouraged him. So, thank you Sra. Fellini -- nobody does butt close-ups like your boy! Nowhere in Fellini's body of work do the asses strain against pencil skirts like they do in the relatively little-seen Amarcord, a semi-autobiographical story about life in Italy under Mussolini. A newly restored version presents an improved view of posteriors and politicos.

  • 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.'"
