Winner in the latest creepy new "beauty" trend has to be bagelheads. Let's sooo hope the Japanese body modification trend of injecting saline drips into one's body to form bagel shapes will not make it stateside. Heads, faces, boobs, and arms are reported to be targets for those embarking on this, er, unique concept. Any routine noshing on a Katz's, Noah's (if you must), or Holey Bagel may become mentally difficult if any bagelhead is within eating (read: gagging) distance. According to, the bagelheads "are injected by professional piercers in a specific location, which causes over-the-top inflammation and swelling. Then the area can be molded and dented in to their liking. Using food dye, you can even color your bump!" The bagelhead experience lasts for only one night, after the bagel bump loses shape and allows the skin to return to its normal shape. Oy.

  • 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.'"
