  • Justice is served in San Francisco courts. The ailing doors, however, are not.

Lawyer: I don't know anything about my case.

Judge: I know.


Defendant to lawyer: The way you talked to them two cops. Man, you really know what the fuck you is doing.


Lawyer to defendant: I suggest you go with the time waiver [waiving the right to a speedy trial]. It'll give you more time to get your shit together.


Man in wheelchair in back of courtroom: Spiderman, Spiderman, does

whatever a spider can ... (he proceeds to sing the whole song. He knows

all the words.).


Bailiff to man in wheelchair: Hey! You are not at home, okay!


Girlfriend: Man, your feet stink; damn! (she leaves the courtroom).

Boyfriend sits stoically.


First lawyer in elevator: He so totally hates (long pause) us!

Second lawyer: You think?

  • 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.'"
