Bet your Super Bowl party didn't have a professional eater in attendance, like this bro party that paid Guinness World Record holder Takeru Kobeyashi a hefty appearance fee to hang out and eat a pizza (cheese, from the looks of it) in less than a minute. He succeeds like a champ, and was paid $3,250 for his trouble, according to Deadspin. Just another day in the glamorous life of someone on the professional eating circuit.

While it is alarming to watch a human put away that much cheese and bread in less than sixty seconds, it also, perversely, makes us want a cheese pizza.

Anyway, happy Tuesday morning. Now go out and get in line for your Super Bowl loser pudding.

  • 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.'"
