Wax! Crackle! Pop!

Wax! Crackle! Pop! Show #36: Below us, ROCK! And behold, it’s power to roll.

Monday, August 25


After the bay area woke up (3:30 am local time) to the biggest quake felt in 25 years, people were quickly reminded how we “Californians” still live in a volatile area. Despite the tech industry’s cultural bulldozering approach to SF or the on going drought that is slowly paralyzing our resources, Mother Earth is awake underneath and will have the last word. (not) An Irwin Allen production.
