Our favorite morsel from the blogs.

Insert cheese-cutting fart pun here: Go ahead and bust us: We totally stole that headline up there from Gordon Edgar, Gordonzola blogger, Rainbow cheese guy, author of the wonderful new book Cheesemonger: A Life on the Wedge ($17.95, Chelsea Green). On Tuesday, Edgar described what happens when a particularly noisome (but thoroughly delicious) cheese hits the noses of Rainbow's very vocal and opinionated worker-owners. Edgar: "Even after it was wrapped and put on the shelf, its smell lingered. Even an hour later my favorite vegan co-worker walked by and she noticed. Head on a swivel, she looked around the store. Then she started moving boxes around and looking under produce displays. I went over to her to let her know everything was ok.

Before I could speak she whispered, 'I smell a dead rat.'

'It's just cheese,' I said.

'No, that's dead rat. I know.'

I walked her over to the compost and pulled out the paper that had once held our smelly Alpine friend. I held it up to her face.

'UGH! Ack!' Then she looked at me with all her vegan wrath and said, 'What is wrong with you people?'"

Ah, Rainbow, how we love you. Mostly.

  • 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.'"
