  • Linger vaginal mints: Curiously strong -- and maybe just a tad gross.
Ladies, the makers of Linger -- mints for the va-jay-jay -- are hoping you'll want to add an "internal feminine flavoring" for sexy time. As reported on, the mints, priced at $7.99 per pack, are actually "small, naturally sweetened flavoring ... which was created to flavor the secretions of a woman when she is sexually aroused." So wrong. Or oh so right?

One red flag that has us both shrugging and shuddering is the use of sugar as the main ingredient. Sugar is known to cause nasty and troubling yeast infections, a fact that might just give a whole new meaning to the Linger label. The lady mints are made in New Jersey by Admints, who also manufacture regular mints for trade show giveaways. And just like regular breath mints, the manufacturer promises a certain longevity: "Linger is shaped for comfort during insertion and use, and is formulated to dissolve slowly, so the effects last and last." Frankly, we'll take the dated feminine hygiene images of women walking on the beach and listening to soft music over that kind of Linger-ing feeling. Any day.

  • 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.'"
