Pork-Pork-Porken Is The New Turducken: Make Sense?

It's almost hard to believe, but here it is, Carl Huber's Bacon Pig: a pork hot dog encased within a big old wad of ground pork and then lovingly wrapped in (what else?) bacon. It's hard to ignore the obvious artistry here. The finished bacon pig has garlic cloves for ears and chilis for tail and eyes. And regrettably, yes, the damn thing does bear a striking resemblance to Piglet from Winnie the Pooh. We're dealing with a sick bastard here, folks:

"... has anyone tried to restore a Frankenstein's Monster-like dignity to the pig from which the bacon hails? Probably not, because most people aren't this crazy."

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
