Last week, we told you about the San Francisco gay blogger who was on a rampage to get us and everyone else across the nation to boycott any retailer still doing business with the decidedly antigay Christian Values Network.

His efforts have caught the attention of both sides. Blogger Roy Steele tells us his boycott has worked, and some retailers have agreed to sever ties with the Christian shopping web portal. And to prove this, the Christian Values Network has delivered a message of its own to Steele.

On Friday, Steele, who runs the gay blog Tie-Dyed Jive in the (415), received an awkward phone call from the Christian Values Network. Steele missed the call, but was delighted to have ruffled the group's feathers. 

"They are threatening me -- and I say bring it on!" Steele says. 

Steele decided to have some fun with it, taking the we-will-sue-you message and dubbing it over an animated drag queen.

Check it out.

  • 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.'"
