The Chronicle scores a big win in the you're-fucking-kidding-me-right? department today with their "news" about this crazy new eating utensil called -- wait for it -- the "spork" (their quotes, not mine).

Yes folks, under the headline "What's New," writer Lynne Char Bennett informs us that the spork is, in fact, a spoon combined with a fork. But wait! There's more! If you buy one of these magical devices, you'll "never worry about having to use disposable plastic forks or spoons again." Whew, what a relief!

Oh wait. Apparently sporks aren't so new after all. Besides being ubiquitous in school cafeteria lunches and KFC meals since time memoriam, they've also been mass-maufactured since at least the late 1800s.

Who says newspapers aren't relevant anymore?

  • 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.'"
