By now you've probably seen the brilliant, stop-motion short film "Fresh Guacamole" by director PES. It was up for an Academy Award last night in the best animated short film category, and though it didn't win, we still haven't gotten tired of watching everyday objects transformed into deceptively delicious-looked guacamole.

Do check it out if you haven't seen it already -- it's short, sweet, and totally charming -- or give it another view if you've already seen it once (or a half dozen times, like us).

While you're watching videos instead of working, you might as well take a gander at PES's earlier film, "Western Spaghetti," which operates on the same concept (we particularly like the Post-Its as stand-ins for sliced butter).

  • 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.'"
