Meat confessional: Hot Food Porn sloshed around in controversy yesterday the way that kid from Slumdog sloshed around in outhouse effluent. In a post about the inaccessibility of sustainably produced meat, Porn mused without offering solutions. How could he? The problems are enormous. Still, lines like the following are sure to make it a tad uncomfortable the next time Porn dons his drawstring pants to hit some Slow Food salumi tasting at 18 Reasons: It is true that we are in a predicament with the overabundance of abusive farms and unsanitary meat processing, but how are people supposed to change and adapt to a new quality purveyor source when that source is almost completely unattainable. Nicely put.

Fruit fight: In Noe Valley, where conflict is usually confined to fights over who has to drive the Prius over to Whole Foods to pick up more two percent, there's a war brewing -- over fruit. Noe Valley, SF is keeping an eye on the conflict between (allegedly) the owners of Pasta Gina on Diamond (at 24th St.) and the guys who sell flats of strawberries out on the corner (illegally, of course). As usual, reader comments are as bruising as, um, the alleged handling of the fruit guys' berries.

  • 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.'"
