You may not have heard, and you may not think you care about the Writers Guild of America strike, but when you find yourself curiously not laughing tonight as a repeat of The Daily Show airs, you'll start caring pretty quick.

It's the first such work stoppage in 20 years, something about residual pay for internet usage, among other issues. All I know is I want it my Colbert, I want my Jon Stewart, and I want them now. How else can I justify my sky-high Comcast and TiVo bills? With reality TV? Hell no.

  • 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.'"
