Jelly Belly Grows Up, Kicks Ass: Taste The Fear, Panther

Posted By on Fri, Apr 11, 2008 at 10:49 AM


Despite their versatility, staying-power and lifelong endorsement by one of the manliest presidents in American history, there's always been something just a tad, well, girly about Jelly Belly jelly beans. I suspect it stems directly from a combination of the word 'jelly' itself and the miniature cuteness of the things. After all, any candy that can be comfortably eaten by the dozen can't be very manly. That said, these new flavors really balance things out. My favorites: war medal, groin pull, gun powder, gravel, blood, and how can you not love the taste of fear? If only it were true. (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.'"
