I found these T-shirts on sale at a truck stop while driving from L.A. to San Francisco over the weekend. At first I thought they were video game knockoff T-shirts -- then I read the fine print.

As you can see, the truck stop had fans of both major video game franchises covered:

They even have a T-shirt for those who play actual instruments. Gotta love the pun:

And finally, the Christian reappropriation of Ronnie James Dio's 'devil horns' (which Dio didn't mean to have anything to do with the devil). Regardless, note the crucifix wound on figurative Christian rocker's wrist:

The middle of the state is a strange place.

  • 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.'"
