  • Ah. Now we get it.
We were visiting U.C. San Francisco's Web page the other day -- you never know when you'll stumble across something amazing -- when something hit us right in the forehead. Specifically, Rep. Nancy Pelosi's forehead hit us in the forehead.

We were glancing at the above photograph at the top of UCSF's site, and, honestly, the first thing we thought was, "Is that her hair?" Then, "Was the lighting off?" Then, "Was there a spot on the photographer's lens?" Then we clicked on the story. And we felt stupid:

  • Ah. Now we get it.
As the text of the UCSF in-house story reveals, Pelosi's meet-'n'-greet was on Wednesday. Ash Wednesday

  • 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.'"
