Our colleagues at The Westword today in Denver -- whom, if we were forced to utter a kind word in their regard, we might note that they apparently possess the correct number of chromosomes -- today gave us a hard time for not giving them a hard time. There's no pleasing some people.

Rather than exchange verbal barrages related to the Giants-Rockies playoff race -- when San Francisco has all but pissed away any last semblance of competitiveness this weekend, ceding the role of main Rockies challenger for the Wild Card berth to Atlanta, even -- we instead featured much-tattooed Giant Justin Miller in our Weekly Ink feature.

We didn't want to mention it, but we were actually somewhat shocked by a couple of the specifically anti-Denver, anti-Westword tattoos hiding on the pitcher's body:

By the way, don't bother asking on what body part those tattoos were located. You already know.

  • 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.'"
