Bruce Brugmann: The No-Fluff Zone

Posted By on Mon, Jun 25, 2007 at 2:29 PM

Last week we told you about an obvious goof on Bruce Brugmann by a judge in this year’s Association of Alternative Newsweeklies journalism awards contest. The Bay Guardian’s anti-union publisher/editor/Burl Ives stunt double posted his response to the item after our spam filter swallowed his e-mail (sorry about that, Brucie); he confirmed that he had never heard of Cory Zurowski, who joked in his judge’s bio on the AAN site that he once worked as Brugmann’s “pro bono fluffer.”

The reference to Brugmann has since been disappeared from Zurowski’s bio. Fortunately, thanks to Google’s fabulous cached feature, the unabridged version lives on.

Whether Brugmann had a hand in altering the bio doesn't interest us enough to investigate; we'll leave that to Matier & Ross, after they get to the bottom of their very own watergate. But if it was you, Brucie, might we humbly suggest that you devote your energy to more important matters – like, say, paying your interns. --Martin Kuz

  • 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.'"
