After graffiti and body paint, the sticker is every San Franciscan's favorite vehicle for communicating with the public. It's usually a hit or miss affair. Conversations about this sticker, spotted on the waterfront near the SF Weekly offices, go like this:

"I don't get it. 'Hasta la vista to your wife?' Like, his wife is going to leave him after he becomes governor?"

"Is he supposed to be stealing Arnold's wife? He knows Maria Shriver doesn't come with the office, right?"

"I think it's about how he had an affair with his campaign manager's wife, so if he becomes governor, he'll steal all our wives"

Yeah, it's not only not funny it's kind of confusing. If you're going to take the effort to design, print, and distribute a sticker with a vaguely political message, surely it can be done better. Especially when Gavin has given us so much good material.

  • 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.'"
