Trash Talking: Worst Company in '08

Posted By on Fri, Feb 15, 2008 at 9:51 AM

If you’re sitting at work and looking to spend a couple hours and looking to talk smack on the interwebs, jump into the Worst Company in ’08 thread over at Gawker blog Consumerist. Readers are invited to name the company that has been sucking it up the hardest and after the votes are tallied the dubious honor will be doled out. Past "winners" include the RIAA and Halliburton. Early favorites for this year seem to be Comcast and Best Buy. Will no one throw their hat in the ring for American Apparel? Trashing the chain may garner one a lot of passive-aggressive side-long glances from hipsters, but is anyone else sick of their paternalistic labor practices and porno ads that look like they were cribbed from a teenager’s Myspace page? - Andy Wright

  • 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.'"
