Our favorite morsel from the blogs.

Fewwd: Maybe reading about stomach-churning food mashups made with supermarket ingredients is comforting, the way reality TV's focus on the dickish and deluded offers clear catharsis. After you've had enough of SFoodie blogger Andy Wright and the cherpumple that gobsmacked Zeitgeist, check out these unsavory alliances on our sister food blog Gut Check from the Riverfront Times in St. Louis. In "20 Unholy Recipes: Dishes So Awful We Had to Try Them," Nick Lucchesi probes blogger Robin Wheeler's revival of the evil stepchildren of 20th-century American industrial foodways. There's jellied bouillon with frankfurters, hot dog salad dressing (disturbingly, it's exactly what you think), and Reuben chowder. That last one not only lets you imagine throwing up, it looks like throwup. And the pickle-stretcher salad from 1969 makes you wonder at the need for a strategy of going all loaves and fishes with the last Claussen in the jar ― a recipe every bit as desperate and unsavory as The Situation packing the crib with fake-bake hotties.

  • 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.'"
