Last week, the Weekly's fabulous Layout Editor, Audrey Fukuman, and yours truly were brainstorming on art for Benjamin Wachs' upcoming article mocking Mayor Gavin Newsom's Twitter habits. I floated the idea of having the man ride Twitter's iconic Fail Whale (which Twits run into whenever Twitter gives them an error message) and Audrey created the fun image you see above.

When we shared it with our pals via @SF_Weekly they demanded we create some wallpaper, so we've obliged:

You'll find the 1680 x 1050 version here. And the 1024 x 768 here. Enjoy.

  • 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.'"
