Joanna Rees Posts Picture of -- What the Hell?

Based on Joanna Rees' donor list, the venture capitalist turned mayoral candidate is the picture-perfect candidate for the city's glitterati.

But when it comes to actual pictures, the candidate is far from perfect. Our calls to Rees' campaign have thus far not been returned, so we have no idea why she posted this picture on her Flixi page.

We also have no idea what the hell that is.

Is it a picture of San Francisco taken through a glass darkly? Is it the thumb of a person wearing gray gloves? Is it your typical weather out in the Sunset?

It warrants mentioning that this photo is about as clear as what Rees means when she claims to be a "progressive independent."

We eagerly await a response from the Rees camp. In the meantime, do remember to take the lens cap off the camera, Ms. Would-Be Mayor.

Update, 2 p.m.: A member of Rees' exploratory campaign dropped a line and noted he did not know how this happened or what this is a photo of. He promised to get back to us if he gleaned the answer to either of those questions.

  • 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.'"
