SF Gate: You Know What's Weird? Violent Beatings.

Posted By on Tue, Mar 4, 2008 at 11:33 AM

Here's a sampling of the kinds of stories found in the 'Weird News' section of the Chronicle's Web site: a story about how British spies hired an astrologer to write horoscopes for Hitler, a story about how an American Idol star was once a stripper, and a story about a McDonald's in Los Angeles that adheres to the tenets of feng shui. And then there's this story, under the title 'Guys, It Was An Accident. AN ACCIDENT!':
A man was on life-support Sunday night after being beaten by two other men in the aftermath of a vehicle collision in Oakland, according to police.The victim and the two men were apparently in two separate vehicles that collided in the 9800 block of C Street in east Oakland around 6:45 p.m., according to Oakland Police Officer J. Moore. The two men apparently then beat the victim until he was unconscious, Moore said. No more information was available about the incident.

  • 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.'"
