San Francisco is fed up with Big Tech, and residents are begging the next mayor to do something about it

San Francisco's housing market is out of control, and residents want the tech industry to answer for it. San Francisco's out-of-control housing prices continues to cause an uproar.  With the election for San Francisco mayor less than three weeks away, many residents are focused on how the candidates will fix the housing crisis. For some candidates, that means asking the tech industry to answer for gentrification and the impact it's had on the real estate market.    San Francisco is in trouble. The streets are filthy. Housing prices are out-of-control. The city is host to 1.23% of all homeless Americans. Some...

Climax review – bad trip at the danse macabre

“It’s a nightmare!” Gaspar Noé’s latest is a typically confrontational cocktail of music and horror; a trance-like stew of contorting, krumping, waacking weirdness that drops on its audience like the bucket of blood from Carrie. It’s purportedly based on the true story of a dance troupe’s descent into drug-addled delirium, although the result looks like it was torn straight from Noé’s twisted cinematic imagination. As always, he’s out to provoke, with gleeful teaser posters screaming: “You despised I Stand Alone, you hated , you loathed , you cursed , now try Climax”, accompanied by an image of the Argentina-born, Paris-based...

Yayoi Kusama: the world's favourite artist?

Council housing: how Hackney has raised the game

In the 1990s, in a special kind of civic carnival, council-owned tower blocks were garlanded with the banners of demolition contractors. Explosives were set. Crowds would then gather at a hopefully safe distance. There was anticipation, as before a firework display, until – kerplunk! – the former homes of hundreds descended like stumpy ballerinas into spreading skirts of dust. As the received wisdom was that tower blocks were a Bad Thing, there was little inhibition about celebrating their destruction. Times change. The finishing touches are currently being applied to two blocks, 20 and 16 storeys high, commissioned by the London...

Cat Power: 'I didn’t know I loved myself when I was younger'

Cat Power, whose real name is meets me in the lobby of her London hotel, and things do not go as expected. First, she is warm and inviting, when her smoky, melancholy records had led me to expect someone much more remote. And second, she is immediately in full swing with her impersonation of my English accent. “Life in the old dog yet, eh!” she says, after we decide to go to her room to avoid the noise and the smoking rules. “Good old Blighty!” she adds, as we get into the lift. I didn’t see this coming – not...

The best magazine covers ever?

As a teenager in 1960s Belfast, I fell in love with magazines. They introduced me to a community beyond family and school. They were seductive and aspirational. I remember seeing for the first time in a Belfast boutique in 1968 while wondering if I could afford a Ben Sherman shirt. It was a revelation, voicing a cultural shift that I only hazily understood but knew I wanted to be part of. I bought the magazine, not the shirt. Little did I know, its co-founder, , would be my boss 24 years later. Read more Like any business, a magazine’s first...
