It was a crazy week in the newsroom once again. This week, though, was unlike any other. This week was a rough one for San Francisco and the Bay at large as we lost one of our own.

Nevertheless, the news went on. Here are this week’s top stories, from the 49ers to Ant-Man to the loss of Robin Williams.

Michael Cera Released an Album and it’s Kind of Good and Not at All Awkward Like You’d Suspect

Michael Cera, comedic actor by default and creepy mustache cultivator, pulled a Beyoncé and stealthily released an album on his Bandcamp page. Called True That, it touches on a few genres, from pure instrumental piano tracks to folk to a little bit of edgy rock. He may be an actor, but he’s got some bona fide music chops.

The 49ers are Playing Their First Game at Levi’s Stadium

It’s almost football season and Niner Nation is getting even more #faithful the closer we get to kickoff. There’s a whole lot of newness around their mystical, shiny new digs, so we got the scoop on everything from the average price costs to traffic and parking, to the food and more. Get in on the action before you get down there.

Uber Maybe Hates Us All But Loves Charging Us Literally Hundreds of Dollars in Fares After Outside Lands

This one is gross. Uber, notorious for cranking up their fees up to 5x the cost of standard fare during peak hours, ended up charging riders up to a reported $450 for a single fare following this year’s Outside Lands. Think that’s fair? You be the judge.

Paul Rudd Will Reportedly Be in Town Filming Ant-Man Because Superhero Movies loooooooove San Francisco

Paul Rudd, actor and contender for greatest human alive is apparently going to be in town for a couple days to film scenes in the upcoming superhero film Ant-Man. Let’s hope this time the film doesn’t feature an depiction of San Francisco’s imminent destruction.

Robin Williams Passes

It was a somber week in the newsroom. We lost a great American icon and one of the most important Bay Area residents of all time. The actor and comedian will be remembered by his family, friends and the community that loved him. Williams appeared in four films that will release over the next couple years, and there is currently a petition in place to rename the Waldo Tunnel after him.
