California Democratic gubernatorial candidate Jerry Brown is no spring chicken. And he needs your fashion advice.

Brown has enough elections under his belt to know the value of lookin' sharp. That's why the man of many hours is calling on his supporters to "help Jerry Brown save California in 2010" by submitting T-shirt designs to Flickr that incorporate a positive message about him. Meaning, it's back to the drawing board if you've already superimposed his head onto a dinosaur.

Though the winning design will be sold on Brown's site, there's no cash prize involved. Instead, the winner will be generously rewarded with

the less tangible satisfaction of getting name recognition. Oh yeah, and

the satisfaction of helping Brown complete his journey from governor to has-been to weird presidential candidate to mayor of Oakland to attorney general to governor again -- one cotton shirt at a


Because we love a good design contest just as much as the

next person with passable Photoshop skills, we plan to promptly submit the following

entry to Brown's campaign team. Supposing it doesn't win, feel free to

buy it directly from the source.

For the artistically inclined, please also feel free to send us your designs -- and send 'em to Jerry, too.

    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.'"
