Play the Anti-Meg Whitman Video Game

It isn't Final Fantasy XIII -- don't worry, it won't "brick" your computer. But a clever videogame from the California Labor Federation is alleging that Republican gubernatorial nominee Meg Whitman will indeed "brick" the state.

Essentially it's just the ninja star-throwing segments of Shinobi -- except you're Meg Whitman, firing predominately women and minorities from the many companies she's worked at (and, it seems, fired lotsa women and minorities). Click below to play Wall Street Whitman.

By the way, if you enjoy videogames reminiscent of  1980s fare -- and now humorously antiquated -- being used for marketing purposes, you'll love the work being done by the city's Department of the Environment.

  • 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.'"
