It's not every day you can be distracted by an obnoxious nudist's schlong -- and then be distracted again by a low-flying spaceship.

The Space Shuttle Endeavor this morning soared over San Francisco during its cross-country piggyback ride on a Boeing 747. The shuttle will eventually come to a rest at the California Science Center in Los Angeles. In the meantime, however, the small children purportedly traumatized by the nude men cavorting about the Castro can be duped into believing the mounted aircraft are producing a baby Cessna.

You will, in all likelihood, never see a space shuttle fly over the bay again.

You will, in all likelihood, see a naked dude later today.

C'est la vie.

  • 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.'"
