    If you’re an egomaniacal super genius with an affinity for all sorts of high tech gadgets and looking to build a new app, what’s your next step? Why, move to San Francisco, of course. Marvel Comics announced this week at San Diego Comic-Con that Tony Stark, “the cool exec with a heart of steel,” aka Iron Man, is vacating Manhattan and setting up new digs in SF to build an app for his Extremis armor.The iconic superhero has typically been based (in print, at least) in Manhattan, where Stark Industries is headquartered—and where the Avengers Mansion is located.

    Andrew Jackson Jihad may be the most important punk band in America, but they sure don't look like it. They're cheerful and (relatively) clean-cut. They don't want you to crowd-surf. They don't move around a lot, and when they do they're self-conscious about it. They don't use any distortion beyond a pretty, almost psychedelic phaser. They're technically proficient enough that they could probably back up Dolly Parton if they wanted to. Read more »

    For this week's Scenes of the City, we visited a spooky old glass factory in the delta town of Antioch. Anchor Glass Factory (1400 W 4th Street) was demolished recently, but for some time it was a photographer's and explorer's haven. Like most abandoned industrial sites, it almost seems like everyone clocked out one Friday and just never came back, leaving behind magazines, boots, and tools.Anchor Glass was once one of the largest producers of milk bottles in the country, producing glass up until the late '90s. In the early 2000s, however, the company filed for bankruptcy and…

The unincorporated town hides among the Humboldt County redwoods and always seems to attract a steady flow of tone-deaf vagabonds. But it turned out the man was not at all tone-deaf and only partially transient. It turned out the guy on my…

Raymond “Shrimp Boy” Chow entered the plea to a newly filed indictment that includes all the same money laundering and related charges as the previous one. The new filing says he served as gang leader of a Chinatown community organization that bribed a state senator and laundered money among other crimes.

The fire was about 10 miles away from Merced Grove, park spokesman Scott Gediman said. “If that is real active, it could go to the Merced Grove,” he said. “But we’re not looking at an imminent threat right now.” Merced Grove is among three stands of giant sequoias in the park. The towering trees grow only on the western slopes of the Sierra Nevada and are among…

    With under a week to go until the non-waiver trade deadline, the Giants urgent needs have become apparent. On Saturday, they made a move to attempt to tackle one need, but they shouldn't be done quite yet.With Matt Cain's uncertain health status and off year to this point, another veteran starter that can be used in the rotation while Cain is on the mend was something Brian Sabean felt was a necessity. The one guy that was linked to them early and made some sense was Boston's Jake Peavy and on Saturday evening, the Giants went out and obtained him from the Red Sox for two of their more…

    15 Jul 2014 | 1:48 pm
    As a team limping into it, the all-star break couldn't have come quick enough for the Giants after their downward spiral that started in early June.Over the last several weeks, they've demoted their closer, lost their leadoff hitting center fielder and have gotten next to nothing offensively from the second base, shortstop, center field and left field positions over the last 4-6 weeks. That's 1/2 your lineup vastly underachieving so it's easy to see where the chunk of the Giants' downfall blame should lay. Hunter Pence has been about as steady as they come after a quiet week or two to start…

    8 Jul 2014 | 10:13 pm
    For a club with the recent struggles the Giants have had and the way they're banged up and in need of a rest right now, the All-Star break cannot come soon enough.Last week, we discussed at length some of the issues with the pitching staff, both relief and in the rotation, but right now the team's offense looks tired and are in the midst of a prolonged slump. This offense went through the first 2 months of the season hitting for both power and average, making run-scoring pretty much a non-issue. It helped them get out to that huge lead in the West and to the best record in all of baseball.

    2 Jul 2014 | 1:31 am
    One Month ago today, pretty much everything was going in the Giants favor. They were the ones getting the big hit late in games and getting the excellent starting pitching which led to the best record in baseball and a comfortable led in the West.Fast forward four weeks, however, and all of the sudden they're neck and neck with the Dodgers for a stranglehold on the division with the All-Star break quickly approaching. It hasn't just been one area of the team that caused the 10-16 June and a 1-6 stretch over their last 7 games. The lineup has been struggling majorly as they try and endure some…
  • Pitching, untimely hitting has Giants in rut

    19 Jun 2014 | 11:13 pm
    Entering play about 10 days ago on June 9th, the Giants had the best record in baseball and sat nearly 20 games above .500. However, a 1-8 run since that date has dropped them back down to earth and has shrunk their lead on the 2nd place Dodgers to just 4 games. A big reason for the Giants rut has been because of some unstable pitching, from the top of the rotation through the back end of the bullpen. Tim Hudson had his worst outing as a Giant this week in Chicago vs. the White Sox, giving up 7 runs on 12 hits in just 4 1/3 innings. Matt Cain followed up Hudson's outing with his worst outing…

  • Giants Acquire RHP Jake Peavy From Red Sox

    26 Jul 2014 | 2:20 pm
    The San Francisco Giants boosted their rotation for the stretch run by acquiring right-hander Jake Peavy from the Boston Red Sox on Saturday for a pair of minor league pitchers. The 2007 NL Cy Young Award winner will start Sunday night’s series finale against the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Giants held a half-game division lead in the NL West against their rival going into Saturday night’s middle game at AT&T Park. The Giants have plenty of familiarity with Peavy, who pitched for manager Bruce Bochy with the San Diego Padres in the playoffs in 2005-06. “It’s great to…
  • San Francisco Giants Pay Heavily to Get Jake Peavy

    26 Jul 2014 | 2:01 pm
    The Giants obtained the starting pitching depth they wanted, trading for Jake Peavy today.  It’s another two-plus month rental, and as with the Tigers’ acquisition of Joakim Soria earlier this week, the price was steep. The Boston Red Sox get young lefty starter Edwin Escobar and not-so-young righty reliever Heath Hembree.  Escobar is 22 this year, and while he’s struggled in his first season in the AAA Pacific Coast League (5.11 ERA), he’s still on track to be a major league pitcher in about a year’s time if he doesn’t get hurt. Heath Hembree is 25 this…

    The moment when Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith will no longer discuss his contract situation is rapidly approaching, even though he makes it seem as if the deadline has already passed. Sure, Smith politely answers every question about his uncertain future, but he also makes it clear that he would rather not. ''You're getting to the point where either way, you want it to stop being a distraction,'' Smith said after practice Wednesday. Let's just focus on the season.''' Smith is due to make $7.5 million this season, the final year of the contract he signed with San Francisco.

  • Theater Review: Hershey Felder as ‘Monsieur Chopin’ at Berkeley Rep

    At Berkeley Rep, award-winning actor and musician Hershey Felder stars in Monsieur Chopin, a passionate portrayal of the “Poet of the Piano.” Hershey Felder has been in Berkeley a lot lately, which is a real boon for music lovers. While audiences sang along when he did George Gershwin, and positively kvelled when he took on Leonard Bernstein, neither of these performances prepared us for how completely he inhabited the persona of Fryderyk Chopin, in his current show, “Monsieur Chopin.” Chopin’s dreamy, romantic music is often a bar against which some measure pianists. Mastering the…

    Stomping grapes! Grape picking will start just two earlier this year for sparkling wine producers in Northern California. According to the NVV (Napa Valley Vintners) trade organization, despite the dry winter (one of the driest on record), Napa’s vintners and growers are “predicting an abundant, high-quality harvest for the third year in a row.” “Late and very welcome spring rains set us up well in this otherwise dry year,” noted Ludovic Dervin, winemaker for Mumm Napa (one the wineries who begins picking tomorrow, July 30). “Thanks to the long, moderately warm spring,…

    In this Stark Insider episode, singer-songwriter Andrew Ripp talks about discovering his voice (thanks to Mariah Carey no less), song-writing versus hit writing, and tapping into his creative side at 9am everyday, even when the words aren’t working. “Now when I get up on stage I’m really trying to show people a guy who has found hope.” Andrew Ripp has seen the ups and downs of the music industry. Four albums in to a career that is on a roll, he recalls dark, “party” days in L.A. “I became like a party animal. The drinking got kind of crazy. I spiraled…

    I caught the very last day of American Dream Cabaret. While the DREAM will be decidedly past tense by the time you eyeball this on your [insert device name here], the show and its progenitor, Mojo Theatre, still merit discussion. Shows like this speak to ticket prices, audience expectations, and why we go to theatre at all. The local theatre ecology means that little theatre companies come and go like clouds scudding across a San Francisco sky. Such instability doesn’t necessarily correlate with the overall value; not only do such companies occasionally offer up some of the more vital and…
  • Not Just a Fish Story: Moby Dick – Rehearsed (Review)

    Moby Dick – Rehearsed is a curious play that gets produced far too seldom. One of Orson Well’s seeming cast-offs, it offers a play within a play within another play. Don’t be put off by this overworked device, however; the Stanford Summer Theatre (SST) may have changed its name to Stanford Repertory Theatre (SRT), but it continues a tradition of  gripping theatre under the thoughtful direction of Rush Rehm. Part of the critical success of SRT lies in casting. Moby Dick – Rehearsed includes a mix of professional players, students and recent grads. This current offering…
