The Huffington Post reports today on the seventh annual World Testicle Cooking Championship, taking place in Ozrem, Serbia. On the menu at the so-called Ball Cup: testicles from kangaroo, camel, ostrich, boar, and bulls; beer and wine are available for washing them down. Side dishes of roasted pig and lamb round out the meaty spectacle, along with testicle pizza with local herbs.

The contest is held each year in Serbia. HuffPo quotes one attendee from last year's ballfest, Anna Wexler, who described a "delicious" menu of stallion, boar, and bull testicles, whipped up into dishes like goulash and moussaka. The contest's organizer, Ljubomir Erovic, has written a testicle cookbook. This year, Erovic will hand out Ballsy Awards to two Americans noteworthy for their enormous cojones: President Obama and Hudson-hero pilot Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger. Neither is expected to attend.

  • 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.'"
