Would really have loved to hear about the lack of water and the monopoly on beverages by Heineken.

I've always hated that the Safeway on John didn't have handled shopping bags. I'm happy to know they have themknow.

If you read all the way to the end you'll see that Brett Hamill did nothing but stir up this shit in the wake of the SB shootings. Of course you would thank him for it, seeing as Slog has become so damn tabloid.

Great fear mongering, Stranger. Other than a curfew there is no real change to the daily life in Bangkok and the small towns aren't even feeling any of the effects. I'd be really fantastic if you guys started focusing on news again instead of trying to tell us how to feel.

Get. The. Fuck. Over. It.

Perhaps SLOG and Gawker have a lot more in common than they would like to admit.

Another damn article about this? Boy, you guys are really pushing the outrage. I bet you're getting some great ad revenue and clicks for your site. Stop trying to make fetch happen.

Jen, it's a shame you highlighted those photos from last night. Printed terribly, not even framed, and selling for $200 for a shitty 8x10 that was probably printed at home.

To me, the most shocking part of this is that someone has been painting the hands of the statue red for months and the Fremont Chamber of Commerce comes out and paints over it. But the artist keeps painting them...no one knows who is doing it. No one has mentioned it on any blogs. Do you think if more people congregated on the streets we would pay attention to these random acts of quiet protest? Is there a possibility that the Fremont Chamber of Commerce is stifling protest and free speech by removing these modifications to the statute?

In Istanbul the city rallied behind a man who had spent his own time and money to paint a set of stairs in his neighborhood the colors of the rainbow. The city sent it's workers to paint over the stairs, first denying it, but then admitting to it. Soon, as word spread that the stairs had been painted grey people from all parts of the city began posting pictures of the stairs they had painted in protest of the man's original rainbow having been removed. http://weburbanist.com/2013/09/29/painti…

Is there a need for the Chamber to paint these hands over? Is it ok for us to modify existing public art temporarily in protest? Should we, as a city with the only on staff art critic, spend more time discussing the guerrilla and street art instead of dismissing it as graffiti? I have so many questions!

It's my house that he's shooting arrows towards at the end of the video. It was weird to wake up, look outside my bedroom window and see Macklemore pointing an arrow at me.

The first song I heard on this new station was The Thong Song. Super empowering...
