  • Not the face: Deen at a similar Smithfield ham giveaway in July, this one in Savannah, Ga.
Poor Paula! Celeb chef and honey-voiced Southern cooking doyenne Paula Deen was hit in the face by a ham earlier today. "Ran head on to a hog," said Deen after getting walloped by a Smithfield Foods ham that was accidentally lobbed at her during a Hosea Feed the Hungry benefit event in Atlanta. Pretty sure Smithfield Foods didn't put ham injury into Deen's contract when she signed on to be their spokesperson! Watch CBS Atlanta footage of Deen getting walloped here. Of course, some would argue that when you shill for Smithfield, you're pretty much inviting catastrophe.

  • 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.'"
