Sometimes it's just too fucking easy. I'm not even going to try sarcasm here:

"American researchers have found evidence to support the notion that fast food restaurants could be a contributing factor to the rising levels of obesity in the United States."

Ahem. This study, out of the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, culled data from over 700,000 respondents. Next thing you know they'll prove that chocolate tastes good. (via Serious Eats)

  • 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.'"
