Tis' the season to deride and discard of fruitcakes, but we suspect that you might be persuaded to keep this incarnation around the house. It was created as part of an exhibit called "Diamonds: Nature's Miracles" in Japan: It's your basic fruitcake encrusted in 223 diamonds, and it's worth $1.65 million dollars. The cake was made back in 2005, but given the life expectancy of a fruitcake, we're still holding out hope for Christmas morning.

  • 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.'"
