Your Friday Morning Pre-Party: QOTSA, Santarchy, and Van Halen
And the new Queens of the Stone Age video "Make It Wit You" in preparation for their upcoming show at the Warfield.
Goddam, this week was brutal. It's the last week to get anything done before everyone starts checking out next week for the Holidays. Now that we're done grinding, we celebrate with a little pre-party before Santarchy tomorrow. I'm your host, Web Editor David Downs. Cue the Audio and the Video.

Now, let's raise our pimp cups to surviving another week of bullshit, unlike some people:
— We pour a little out for 49ers fan Torrey Kretschman; and the dearly departed Pimp C — Remembering a Down South Legend; and for live shows at 21 grand, which are banned After an Alcohol Bust at the Bay's #1 Place for Experimental Music
— We also mourn the passing of all the shows we reviewed this week like: Tool at Bill Graham Civic; RZA at the Independent, NudeAid Brings Porn-Art to Mighty; and Tori Amos' 'American Doll Posse' to the Paramount Theatre
— While simultaneously celebrating The 12 Dildos of Christmas — An SF Kinky Gift Guide
Original online reporting this week included:
— Stupid Landlord Tricks: 'Tis the Season to Hand Out Eviction Notices
— An interview to determine if the Millennial Generation Will Still Think S.F. Is Cool? And Will They Even Use the Word “Cool”?
— A salute to the Bay Area's seventies funk icon Darondo, the most quoteable guy of the year.
— A long-ass piece called No Linkup for You! a story about how in the world of online community, one authoritative man can dictate your social life
— Also, we're stoked to hear I Am Legend rules. Evidently that old 'last man on Earth' setup really works.
Also, we're toasting the launches of:
—Wednesday feature HuMP3 Day: SF Weekly's Music Section, Streamed; the daily posts under news category Laser-Guided Awesome — An SF Lifehack Blog with info on How to Make a Christmas Tree Pop-Up Card (not the only thing that will pop-up)
Plus our existing weekly features rocked with:

— Tuesday's The Best Art Prints on the Web with Creep Machine's Josh Curating His Top 5 of the Week; and Tuesday's BetterKnowanSFBlog on Laughing Squid
Upcoming this weekend, SF Weekly brings back pictures and reportage from:
—SantarchyAnd lastly, we raise our pimp cups to all the commenters worldwide that made our Wednesday feature Kings of Commenting so entertaining. You guys are so cute when you're mad.

Remember to take advantage of a loved one over these holidays, that's what love is about,
(Your Friday morning pre-party kicks off every Friday morning around 8 a.m. (unless we're vomiting that early). Send us your pics, videos, mp3s, events, and links if you want to be part of the party. If not, that's your bad.)
