  • A luscious disc of extra-thick SCOBY.
The Onion -- if it has a semblance of a pulse left -- needs to get on the hilarious, phony Craigslist ad tip. Of course, fake ads are unnecessary when the real ones already deliver plenty of laughs. Take, for example, this gem from Monday. "FREE Kombucha SCOBY Mushroom," reads the header. But the kicker is in its two lines of text: "Bring a 1qt GLASS container. Will trade for anything you have in excess." The proposition is intriguing. Anything? Really? Well, in our freezer, we have a softball-sized knob of pot butter the color of a bar of Irish Spring. We were planning to craft some crazy cookies to spoil our holiday office party, but perhaps in lieu of an obvious "anything," the Haight-based poster would accept a few cans of chickpeas, some wilting dill, or the last mushy bits of our Thanksgiving turducken?

  • 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.'"
