Video of the Day: The Snogometer

Posted By on Mon, Aug 13, 2012 at 8:30 AM


The Snogometer is a kiss-measuring device invented by British teenager Malcolm Pickard in 1965. The girl half of this couple looks thrilled. We can't say we blame her after watching this overzealous lip wrestling match.

Despite Malcolm's earnestness (that's really his mom in the clip!), the Snogometer was "very unsafe" and made your mouth taste like copper.

  • 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.'"
