  • Terrorize the squash-phobic in your life.
SFoodie's weekly look at some urban essentials offered up on Craiglist.

• Five little ducks went out one day, over the hill and far away. Mother Duck said, "Quack, quack, quack, quack," but only four little ducks came back. Why? Because you bought one for $5.

• If you regularly cook for squash-phobic youngsters (or oldsters), now's your chance to seriously terrify them. Go to Petaluma (is there anything up there besides farms and Tom Waits?) and buy acorn squashes for 50 cents each, banana squashes for $3 each, and pumpkins for $4 apiece. The vendor says they'll "go fast."

• There is a goat in Point Arena, Mendocino County, and you can have her for free. Yes, that's right. She's a 4-year-old Nubian milking doe. She gives about a liter of milk each day. She's apparently "very friendly ... and beautiful."

• If old Hades had tried to trick Persephone with a mealy Safeway apple, she'd have had no trouble fasting during her initial visit to his shadowy realm. Pomegranate seeds, of course, proved too tempting, and thanks to her waffling willpower, we have winter. Right now, large, locally grown pomegranates are 10 for $10 somewhere in Santa Cruz County. Make the call.

• Hay Area! Forget paper; take your scraper to Petaluma and load up on oat hay by the 125-pound bale.

  • 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.'"
