Nothing good or decent or remotely happy-making has happened in San Francisco since November 15, 2013, when the entire city collaborated to help Miles Scott live out his fantasy of being Batkid.

Scott, for those of you heartless monsters who don't remember, is the then-5-year-old leukemia survivor whose love of superheros inspired the Make-A-Wish Foundation to transform San Francisco into Gotham City for a day. Everyone from the mayor to the police chief to President Obama to local media got involved in making Miles's dream come true. 

Warner Brothers is releasing a documentary about Batkid's special day on June 26, and yesterday the company released a trailer.

Watch it, and remember what it's like to feel.

  • 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.'"
