Sing-A-Long Sound of Music Invades Castro Theatre for 5 Days This Week

One of San Francisco's most campy, time-honored traditions returns to the Castro Theatre December 1-5. If you've never experienced Sing-A-Long Sound of Music, get thee to the theatre's gilded auditorium for one (or five) of the drunken, rambunctious screenings of this stone-cold classic, which celebrated its 45th anniversary this year. Another great reason to go? It's supposed to rain most of the weekend.

Our Exquisite Corpse Game Begins Today: Submit Your Drawings!

Let our Exquisite Corpse game begin! In the spirit of Chronicle Books' inspiring new tome The Exquisite Book: 100 Artists Play a Collaborative Game (a twist on the classic Exquisite Corpse game), we're challenging you to rev up those artistic engines.

Booze, Boys, and Brownies: A Musical Journey

Somehow women became hopelessly entrenched in the idea that success requires us to make ourselves miserable - whether because current denim sizing declares wordlessly yet emphatically that brownies are a bad idea or because we think mentally pummeling ourselves will keep us on the right track.

Two Sense: Her Orgasm, His Ego

My girlfriend and I have lots of great sex lasting usually an hour or so, and she regularly orgasms either from oral sex or intercourse. When she doesn’t (about a quarter of the time), I’m not sure when to keep trying versus move on to my own orgasm. I’m a sensitive guy, and I don’t like ending without her. But she says she’s fine with her frequency of orgasm and enjoys sex either way. And yet, this nags at me. I feel like I should be doing more, or she should be. Help.

SFMOMA's Pop-Up 'Shadowshop': All Artwork Less Than $250

Even the person who has everything won’t have this: Damien Hirst’s chopped up shark, floating in a bath of formaldehyde and viewed through a casket-like vitrine. You can yank the original out of Charles Saatchi’s living room, or buy the miniature version, by Bay Area-artist Byungjoon Shin, for a mere $89.99.

Shin’s work is among hundreds of artists’ tchotchkes, books, sculptures, media, and other creative output on sale at San Francisco Museum of Modern Art’s Shadowshop, a pop-up art store where nothing costs over $250.

Fillmore Posters, Uncoded: Bid on Signed-by-Artist Posters From Grizzly Bear, Pixies, Death Cab for Cutie...

Bands give it all they’ve got at the Fillmore. With a history that’s seen epic performances by the likes of The Grateful Dead, Jimi Hendrix and The Who, the place is a rock temple. Even today’s arena caliber bands bring their A-game musicianship, should the ghosts of Fillmore past be listening.
