Last week, we regaled readers with the dumbass things Ann Coulter had to say about the Occupy Movement, none of which is worth repeating in this post. Rather, we have new material from an old Republican who, too, has shared his idiotic convictions about the anti-big bank movement.

Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich put in his two cents about Occupy during the Family Leader forum in Iowa recently, but not without giving sincere advice to the droves of protesters who have been camped out on city plazas for nearly two months. 

"Go get a job right after you take a bath!" Gingrich says, followed by a booming applause from like-minded voters in the crowd.

Hmm. We have so much advice to offer Gingrich of our own, but we'll leave this one to Cookie Monster, who could probably say it best.

  • 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.'"
