Artificial Life Likely in 3-5 Years?

Happy Monday, SF. Did you get any rest? Didn't think so.

I was just re-reading The Elementary Particles, and have been thinking a lot about genetically modified, asexual, immortal humanoids without fear or desire. It's easy to write the book off as fiction. Ha ha. Then headlines from the Discovery Channel rekindle all the questions about where we are heading. Good thing we're stuck trying to create just a cell membrane. Can you imagine when shit like this is walking around and shooting at us?

  • 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.'"
