Every Young Husband's Nightmare Acted Out in Viz Valley

Ideally, when you stare into your new bride's eyes, you may not be thinking it but you will be feeling it: I love thee, I love but thee;

with a love that shall not die; till the sun grows cold

and the stars grow old. That's Shakespeare. He was good.

You never think that things will go so badly you'll have to call the police and they'll file a report and send it out on a newsletter to journalists. And yet -- it happens.

On Sunday morning at not quite 7 a.m., a Visitacion Valley man "awoke to the sound of his ex-wife yelling outside his house." That's a terrible thought right there, but it got worse.

According to the subsequent police report, the "suspect" demanded entry and threatened to break a window if not accommodated. Before the hapless husband could act one way or the other he "heard the crashing of a window being broken and looked to see his ex-wife drop a rock and walk away."

In this city you'll find any manner of tragedies involving death, woe, poverty, and filth. But this -- this is just horribly sad.

  • 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.'"
