  • Hopefully, Pez won't kill Frosty.
Laughing Squid and San Mateo County Times report that the Burlingame Museum of Pez Memorabilia, which lives in the back of a shop called Computer Spectrum, is being sued for copyright infringement by Connecticut's Pez Candy, Inc.

The candy company disputes the museum's 7-foot, 85 pound snowman dispenser, which is not an official Pez product but was recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records as the largest Pez dispenser in the world in 2007, and fears that customers might mistake the museum to also be an official Pez property. In short, Pez wants Frosty dead. That's a pretty cruel and unusual potential fate for something so jolly (and harmless), no?

  • 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.'"
