Well this guy’s lecture worked out real well, timing-wise. Mark Tribe (killer name, Mark Tribe) is an artist and professor at Brown University. He’ll be talking about participatory media in protests (i.e taking video and putting clips on YouTube, on the quick) and how it has changed the public sphere. read more »

Read this.  Now play this:

Are you crying yet? Because we definitely are.  And no amount of Facilities Service’s industrial solvent will wash away the tracks of our tears. Moment of silence, please?

shorts11Unicorn: always imaginary, now nonexistent. The trendy little Pan-Asian restaurant, once the one-stop shop for all your Asian culinary needs, has finally galloped away. We kinda had a feeling that an upscale restaurant with snazzy interior design and complimentary champagne wasn’t really Telegraph Avenue material. Don’t worry, you can still find them in SF. [Yelp]

A reminder: Why would you ever want to pay $50 to dance for 12 hours? Because 1350 children die from AIDS every day. Yes, the two are related. [ASUC]

Jimi’s visage is getting a little (purple) hazier. Apparently there have been early-morning sightings of people attempting to wash away his legacy. First Sather Gate, now this? How are we gonna impress high school tour groups? [UCBLJ]

South Side of Berkeley or South Side of LA? The UCPD says that a “prolific sexual deviant” has committed 11 acts of sexual battery south of campus. Skirt-wearers, beware. [Daily Cal]

As part of the Clog’s continuing quest to keep you from doing your Chem 1A reading, we present a set of mind-explodingly awesome live tracks laid down right here in Berkeley through the years. (Oh, and by the way, we’re in the market for White Stripes tickets, if you can hook us up). First up, Foo Fighters:Foo Fighters, Best of You (Acoustic)Is Grohl singing to a former lover who’s settling for less than she’s worth or to a country that reelected George Bush? You be the judge here.Bob Dylan, Tangled Up in Blue—Aug. 10,1988

 The sound quality is far from perfect on this one, but Dylan turns in a surprisingly muscular version of one of the Clog’s favorite songs. And he sure sounds much better than when he played Haas Pavilion a few years back.Spoon, I Summon You—Aug. 12, 2006
 Stupid title, great song.Jimmy (sic) Hendrix, Live at the Berkeley Community Theater
 It’s not from the Greek Theatre, but who cares? It’s Jimi himself. This clip is part one of a concert movie that intersperses his performance with documentary footage, covering what looks like most of his performance from 1970. Take a listen to Johnny B. Goode starting at 8:08 of the first part. Melts your face right off.Foo Fighters – Best Of You.
