Will DMC-12 Time Travel Fuel Chronicle's 'New Era' Initiative?

Posted By on Tue, Feb 3, 2009 at 10:30 AM

According to graphic data retrieved by SF Weekly's computer-assisted reporting team, a "New Era" initiative announced in the Feb. 1 San Francisco Chronicle may include time travel with the help of a specially modified Northern-Irish-made sports car fitted with a flux capacitor and other devices.

Under the headline "S.F. Chronicle turns the page into a new era," a story bylined "Ward Bushee" states: "In June, when we flip the switch on the most modern newspaper presses in the United States, readers can look forward to a high-definition version of the Chronicle," and then adds, "Change does come hard, and we ask our readers for their patience as our dust clears and the new Chronicle emerges."

The story, however, is accompanied by an age-enhanced photograph of Marty McFly, the legendary time explorer and protagonist of the film Back to the Future. SF Weekly's research suggest's Bushee/McFly is a time traveler bringing post-atomic-age newspaper technology to the present-day reader.

  • 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.'"
