  • He might shoot mountain lions, but he's not calling people "spics" and "hicks"

Earlier this week, we told readers about Dan Richards, the California Fish and Game commissioner who is in trouble with animal activists for shooting a mountain lion. Since it's illegal to shoot and kill mountain lions in California, Richards traveled two states over to gun-happier Idaho, where he could safely shoot a mountain lion without being shamed.

The issue has predictably pitted animal-lovers against hunters. But it's also devolved into a back-and-forth so nasty that it makes the Hells Angels' online feuds seem like the antics of playful kittens.

Here's what we found on the Mountain Lion Foundation Facebook page, which has plastered the controversial photo of Richards with his trophy.


Can anyone explain how exactly a person can fuck his or her own mouth?

  • 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.'"
