An enterprising group of bloggers have taken it upon themselves to fill what they call, "a gaping hole in the online body politic." They've created a blog focused solely on the Web site that, among other things, helps people fill gaping holes in bodies all over the US and world: Craigslist. Craigslistblog.org, based out of SF, collects the weirdest personal ads, newest scams, and strangest merchandise from the popular site. The site also collects news items about Clist. Some of today's offerings: utilizing Craigslist to cope with recession, a woman selling a diamond watch gets swindled, and a guy gets arrested after using Craigslist to meet a woman that he later sexually assaulted. An alarming number of the entries are about prostitutes getting busted for using the site to peddle their wares. If you can't go to Craig for your discreet, pay-for sexual encounters, where can you go?(via Technorati)–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.'"
