Here you go: a warm image of man and his best friend to cleanse your news palate. 

Luke Robinson and his Great Pyrenees, Indiana, are taking the longest dog walk ever — from Canada to the Mexico border, and talking to people along the way about canine cancer. On Wednesday, the pair stopped in San Francisco, enjoying the October heat wave in Dolores Park. 
To date, they've hiked 1,000 miles and plan to journey across the Golden Gate Bridge this week, just for fun. You can follow their jaunt down the coast via Tagg GPS Pet Tracker. Or if  you're really motivated, you could start your own insanely long dog walk — and a trip to the mailbox and back doesn't count.

  • 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.'"
