We're rather relieved that the royal wedding happened while we were sleeping and the media pandemonium is coming to a ceremonious close. Did anyone this side of the Atlantic even care to begin with?

Now that the bedlam is over, we're wondering what wedding in the United States could possibly inspire as much general hoopla, Papa John's pizza, and comic book tributes. Here's our short list:

--Sarah Palin and a Majestic Bald Eagle: America's couple. 

Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber: Pop gold.

Ain't no lovin' like Bieber lovin'.

Kamala Harris and Willie Brown: California has been waiting for this one for years.

Hummer Mom and 14-Year-Old Lover: "It was him -- he started it."

Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey: Part Deux -- America loves second chances

Suri Cruise and Romeo Beckham: America loves child brides! So cute!

Nancy Pelosi and Barbara Boxer: Ultimate power couple -- same-sex style.

  • 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.'"
