- Did you know that there's a place in SF where you can rent sensory deprivation tanks? Points to them for not ignoring the elephant in the room and putting a still from Altered States right on their "about" page. No word on devolution, monkeys, or talking to dolphins, however.
Whatever happened to that giant sign attached to Moscone West? I assume the answer is the same as the answer to "whatever happened to the moving ceiling in Metreon", which I assume to be "it broke and we didn't want to spend the money to fix it." Originally it played weird videos and wandered slowly around the building. Then it was just a plain old sign, that they moved occasionally. Now it just sits there. Sad. An art corpse.
"stay still, ball sack."
Tonight was the final Pop Roxx event.
To commemorate this, we gave away a bunch of compilation CDs of most of the bands who have played at Pop Roxx over the last two and a half years. It wasn't all of the bands, because there were too many to fit on an audio CD, so I had to leave a few off.
This week's mixtape is the "director's cut" of that CD: it's almost the complete set of Pop Roxx bands. (And yeah, I'm slightly breaking my "C90" rule for this one.) I'm only missing tracks by three bands (Pretty Vicious, Landshark, and Sunday Drivers). Somehow I managed not to get CDs by those bands, and I wasn't able to track down MP3s by them this week, alas.
We had a lot of great bands at Pop Roxx! I'll miss it.
