What Is Both Cute and Sad? A Terminally Ill Hamster.

Posted By on Thu, May 21, 2009 at 4:45 PM

What would you do if you hamster was terminally ill? Well, if you were my friend's parents in middle school, you'd put it in a shoe box with a hole the size of a exhaust pipe cut in it. But if your Richard, the mustachioed main character of the new movie, Etienne! The Hamster Movie, you'd put your doomed rodent companion in an exercise ball and take him on a tour of beautiful Bay Area locales. This is the first feature narrative by South Bay native Jeff Mizushima and is set in familiar places like the Pigeon Point Lighthouse Hostel and the picturesque Headlands. Screenings will be held at both locations. More info at the Hamster movie Web site, and the wholly charming trailer is below.

  • 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.'"
