Amusement at the expense of Augusten Burroughs

Posted By on Thu, May 1, 2008 at 12:30 PM

"Live Fast, Write Often." Am I the only person who thinks that this line in a full-page ad in Tuesday's NY Times for the new book A Wolf at the Table is hilarious?

"The First Memoir In Five Years From Augusten Burroughs."

Hey, Augusten, stop slackin'!

(And this, also, struck us as amusing: "Available on CD and Digital Download from Macmillan Audio. Featuring Exclusive All New Original songs inspired by A WOLF AT THE TABLE from: Ingrid Michaelson, Tegan Quin from Tegan and Sara, Sea Wolf, and Patti Smith." We guess it's not enough to have a horrible, abusive, aloholic father. Now you have to have songs inspired by him.) --Meredith Brody

  • 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.'"
