SF Weekly Letters June 18-24, 2014 


Comic Book World

SF Weekly becomes comics, garners fans: Just want to thank the SF Weekly team and the collaborators for the terrific comics issue [Comics Issue, 6/11]. So smart, so varied, and so fun to hold in print to boot. Special claps for Ellen Wang and Max Wittert, illustrating the impossible! I hope you're all getting the praise you deserve.

Closing Time

Interesting story on the new suburban flight: This was a really interesting piece ["Queer Flight," Pete Kane, feature, 6/4]. Kind of wished there was a more direct comparison with other cities like Chicago or Houston (New York's demographics would be a bit off by sheer numbers). But good article regardless. Keep up the good work.


Another reader says S.F. will always be the place for queers: San Francisco will always be the safe ground for queers. All S.F. needs is an earthquake and all the techies and supposedly-straights will be running out like little girls. I remember Loma Prieta in '89, and I will stay here until my last day. If any person has a problem with it, then write the supervisors. Pride is coming and those new in town will feel the heat and I mean the queer heat.


Music for Money

Support artists by monetary means: I don't put much of my income into charity, [but] I love music ["Swimming Against the Stream," Ian S. Port, music, 6/4]. I buy albums from small artists I enjoy on purpose. Somebody has to support them. If a person wants good, independent music, buy a CD or download the album straight from the band, and/or buy their T-shirts. They need to eat and sleep in a good bed just like everyone else!


Blog Comments of the Week

Just a bunch of man-babies: What actual work is there left to do, other than design at this lazy office ["San Francisco Firm Seeks "Girl Friday" to Cook Their Paleo Diets, Do Everything Else," Joe Eskenazi, the Snitch, 6/12] Bunch of man-babies at that office, and only a part-time job, hardly worth it. And of course, Paleolithic peoples did not eat anything like Paleo diets.


Art moves out for housing: I remember seeing this when I first moved to the city 12 years ago and thought it was pretty neat ["Flying Furniture: Brian Goggin's Art Piece 'Defenestration' Evicted," Juan De Anda, the Exhibitionist, 6/11]. I'm sad to see it go, but it's probably good that they're fixing up the building and using it for something.

In "Swimming Against the Stream," [Ian S. Port, Music, 6/4] we misspelled Suzana Barbosa's name. SF Weekly regrets the error.

  • 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.
