Onstage with TechCrunch's Mike Arrington and The Facebook Effect author David Kirkpatrick at this week's TechCrunch Distrupt, Sean Parker was asked by an audience member, "How do you feel about getting the better looking actor to play you?" referring to Aaron Sorkin's upcoming film "The Social Network" where actor Jesse Eisenberg will play Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, and Justin Timberlake will play Parker.

"I met JT once - He was a really nice guy. I actually don't think he looks anything like me, but he did grow his hair out for me."

-- Parker

By which of course we hope he means, "Grow his hair out to play me."

  • 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.'"
