Failed CA Senate Candidate and Tech Executive Carly Fiorina is Running for President, Bad at Internet :(

Carly Fiorina is running for president. The 60-year-old businesswoman is perhaps best known to Californians for her failed campaign to unseat Senator Barbara Boxer in 2010 and bizarre "demon sheep" campaign ad. (Despite its promising description, the demon sheep ad is something of a let down, kind of like Fiorina.) 

Fiorina's biggest selling point as a politician is her experience as an executive, based on her term as CEO of Hewlett-Packard, where she oversaw massive layoffs before being pushed out with a $21 million severance package, according to Mother Jones

But the woman who blames liberals and environmentalists for California's historic drought might want to rethink her web strategy. Someone poached the web domain and has put up a simple message reminding the world of the exec's sorry record at HP: one frowny face per lost job. That's a whole lot of :( for a Monday morning.

  • 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.'"
