If You Can Stare at the Carpet and Not Fall Down, You Get a Job: Amazing Photo in Examiner

  • Screen Capture, San Francisco Examiner
We really don't remember the overall theme of this San Francisco Examiner story from earlier this week -- that's not meant to be an insult, it's just that there's only so many stories about the economy flaming out like a San Francisco outhouse that one can process.

What really caught our eye is that carpet -- we haven't seen floor coverings like that since the hotel check-in scene in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (fewer lizard people here).

Those poor, jobless folks. Thanks to that magic carpet, now they literally get to ride the employment wave.

  • 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.'"
