Good morning! How's your day going? Could be a little better, right? The Internet has provided just the thing to put a little more spring in your step. Eater uncovered the apparent restaurant trailer for a new Staten Island restaurant called Troy, where modern conveniences like refrigeration are eschewed for medieval preparations of "raw meat, live fish, and screamin' bird." But the details about the restaurant don't matter, since none of us will go there anyway. It's the restaurant's trailer that concerns us today, a video that has set the standard for all restaurant trailers going forward:

I'm a little skeptical that this is an actual place — according to its Facebook page, the restaurant is serving "ancient and contemporary food fusion restaurant, Polish, Greek food, Roman food, French fusion restaurant, Medieval era food," which seems pretty unbelievably muddled even for a medieval-themed restaurant on Staten Island — but there's an earnestness to the video that makes me want to believe. If this is a hoax, I salute the hoaxters.

  • 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.'"
