Our favorite morsels from the food blogs and beyond.

Um, my mother with a pair of scissors?: Food Gal plays Dr. Freud, offering up the foodie equivalent of a Rorschach test in a wide-pixel photo of glistening piquillo peppers. Queries Food Gal: What do these peppers look like to you? (She reckons they look like the Rolling Stones tongue logo.) One commenter -- a Mrs. L -- takes what's better left subliminal and goes all borderline TMI: I can't tell you what I first thought of because children might be reading this blog. You go, Mrs. L.

Old school: We know print journalism is dying, but does the Chron have to be so obvious about it? In Between Meals, exec food editor Michael Bauer fields yet another letter from a reader who sounds really, really dinosaur-y. About dimly lit restaurant: Please provide a small disposable flashlight on the table for customers to use to read the menu and even take with them. Would also be a low cost advertising idea for them. Yes, we need brighter restaurants! And menus with bigger print! And more places should open at 4 p.m.! Please, Chron, please: Don't make this any more painful than it needs to be.

  • 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.'"
