You Will Not Need Your Brassiere

Where do you go after Stiff, Spook, and Bonk? That is, after Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers; Spook: Science Tackles the Afterlife; and Bonk: The Curious Coupling of Science and Sex? You go into space, that's where. Or, at least, into research facilities whose purpose is to understand the other-than-Earth existence. Hence Oakland author Mary Roach's latest dispatch, Packing for Mars: The Curious Science of Life in the Void. How refreshing it is to know that after all her intrepid research, Roach still remains so curious. It is less refreshing, perhaps, than knowing what happens when you puke while wearing a space helmet.

  • U2 @ SAP Center in San Jose
    Last night U2 performed the first U.S. date of it’s Innocence + Experience tour at SAP Center in San Jose. All four band members were present despite recent injuries sustained by both Bono and Edge. The sold out show took audience members on a walk down memory lane as the band revisited their roots. The innovative stage and lighting used gave the arena show an intimate feel, and engaged audience members in all sections of the venue. Photographs by Sugarwolf.
  • Bay to Breakers 2015 - NSFW
    The 103rd annual Bay to Breakers 12K race was packed on Sunday despite the cold weather. With a starting point a few blocks from The Embarcadero, people dressed as bananas, Elvis and everything in between ran west through the city and finished at the Great Highway where breakers crash onto Ocean Beach.
