DSL Reports has a story about a Comcast Tech who abused his elite access to exact vengeance on a video game prankster. Twenty-year-old Mark Ribeiro of Canada used Comcast support systems to find customer information after getting his Xbox packet flooded by an Xbox Live gamer. Shortly after calling the customer to let them know what their punk kid was doing, Ribeiro began gloating about the situation on Internet forums, but was daft enough to use his real name. This has resulted in a public link to his MySpace, as well as a couple party photos that include the one up top. Remember kids: smoking pot only leads to hanging out with girls, playing video games, and becoming an Internet vigilante on a power trip. Hey, two out of three ain't bad. -- ASD Staff Report

  • 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.'"
