Jerry Brown's official gubernatorial portrait. Yes, really.
One day after Jerry Brown felt the need to apologize for making light of President Bill Clinton's past as a lying philanderer, the latter endorsed the former for governor of the great state of California. What gives?

10. Bill just doesn't find Meg Whitman attractive

9. Jerry needs opportunity to come up with new gubernatorial portrait to make up for this one from his first go-round

8. Bill was promised he'd get Linda Ronstadt's digits

7. Conspiracy theorists point to Vince Foster/Ron Brown treatment of 72-year-old Jerry Brown -- leading to ascendancy of Gov. Gavin Newsom

6. Actually, Clinton is hoping his endorsement does as much for Brown in 2010 as it did for Newsom in 2009

5. It takes more than referring to Bill Clinton as a lying philanderer to get him upset. Good thing.

4. Jerry forced to sit patiently, for hours, reviewing photos of Chelsea Clinton's wedding. "Yes, Bill, she was glowing..."

3. Turns out Meg Whitman is just H. Ross Perot in a big, goofy rubber suit. You don't ever see those two together, do you?

2. Actually, Jerry Brown's can-do attitude, wealth of experience, and sensible policies were just too much for Clinton to resist. Honest!

  • 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.'"
