Sports fans -- and public rail enthusiasts -- may have heard how larger-than-life images of San Francisco Giants' stars are now gracing Caltrains' gallery cars.

It remains to be seen if this will put more derrieres in AT&T Park's seats -- but it's a wonderfully executed promotion. No better way to make Caltrain look fast than an image of Tim Lincecum in mid-delivery. There are also great shots of Pablo Sandoval, Brian Wilson, Aaron Rowand, and ... who is that?

Why, it's Barry Zito, the Giants' $126 million No. 4 starter. Only

you'd never know, because the emergency window removal panel has been

placed right over his face.

Is this a reference to how the Giants might like to pop open and flee Zito's massive, ill-conceived contract? Nah. To paraphrase Freud, "Sometimes an emergency window removal panel is just an emergency window removal panel."

  • 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.'"
