From the 'Good Luck With That' Department: Unidentified 'Doodak' Recovered, Posted on Craigslist

Posted By on Fri, Apr 24, 2009 at 7:30 AM

Much as we love Craigslist, we can't think of many things more useless than the above "Found Item" post. An unidentified item -- that the clueless Good Samaritan doesn't "even know what it is called, so if you can identify it..." is up for grabs here.

What is it? An "Electronic geeky doodak." That's right. It's not a doodad, gizmo, gadget, thingamajig, watchamacallit, contraption, contrivance, doohickey, dooflickey, or even a thingummy, doojigger, or thingumabob.

It's a doodak. And we hope the Clueless Samaritan finds a use for it -- because we predict he's going to be holding on to it.

  • 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.'"
