After witnessing the makeover given to traditional foodstuffs like cupcakes and popsicles, it seems it’s now popcorn’s turn. 479° Popcorn is handmade, made-to-order popcorn in flavours such as Alderwood Smoked Sea Salt, Ginger Sesame Caramel and Black Truffle & White Cheddar.
Taking a leaf from the book of gourmet wine tasting establishments, 479° offers ‘Samplers’ and ‘Collections’, all linked by theme. Samplers’ five boxes feed 2-4 people, and the Collections’ three canisters are enough for 4-8. Prices range from USD 33 for the Purist Sampler to USD 52 for the Caramel Collection.
Aware that posh flavours and presentation aren’t always enough to ensure premium status, 479° Popcorn stresses its green credentials. The majority of its organic fair trade ingredients are sourced from farms close to its San Francisco kitchen, with the popped corn packaged in 90% recycled paper canisters that are also sourced from local suppliers. 479° Popcorn—named for the ideal Fahrenheit temperature for popping corn—is currently available in select Californian stores and via its website for delivery throughout the US. One for boutique cinemas to partner with?
WELL DONE – WELL DONE and WELL DONE AGAIN to the boys and girls that do NIKONs advertising – i mean this is what advertising is about people!! WHy do we really have to put up with so much bad advertising when there is this kind of genius out there!!

There are not too many things in the world more fun than throwing shoes at the worlds worst leader!
So after possibly the longest year of my existance im getting a small break – dont worry ill keep you up to date of the ice cold Moet and gold Patron – have fun this season boys and girls!
So 2009 is poised to be the greatest year yet – and to celebrate we are launching STM CINEMA – you wont know where and you wont know when. All you do know now becuase you are one of the STM few is that it is going to be awesome and you can only get to see it from this site – so if you want to give a xmas gift – give them the gift of Suck the Marrow!
The $12 Cube Clock is shaped like a cube at noon and midnight but rotates to create all kinds of crazy-ass shapes in the interim. “The largest triangle is for displaying hours while the medium is for minutes and the small triangle on the edge represents seconds.” At only $12, the clock makes a great stocking stuffer for Christmas. Alternatively, you could stuff it into the bottom of a sock and use it to beat off a would-be thief. Just trust me, you don’t wanna use your hand.
Hit the jump for a couple pictures of the rotational fun!
So this story has been going backward and forward for too long now – even though i think that this whole thing was the biggest waste of web reporting space – but the new solution is both logos! Hey im all for it – ill even go out and buy a new one for the lions tour – but seriously guys WE DONT CARE JUST PICK SOMETHING AND STICK WITH IT!
Bok makes way for King Protea
Tuesday 02nd December 2008
The South African Rugby Union (SARU) have confirmed the Springbok emblem will move on the national team’s playing jersey to make way for the King Protea.
The team will still be known as the Springboks, but the move was made after a campaign by politicians to get the national symbol to be used by the rugby team.
“The President’s Council of the South African Rugby Union on Monday resolved to move the Springbok emblem to the right-hand side of the national playing jersey,” a statement from the SARU said.
“The decision was taken to accommodate the application of the National Sports Emblem – the King Protea – and to bring SA Rugby in line with other South African sports federations and planned legislation.
“As a consequence of the change, the Protea that is currently displayed above the leaping Springbok will be removed from the Springbok logo.”
The World Champion Springboks will don their new logo in 2009 when they take on the British and Irish Lions.
“The Council took cognisance of the advice they received from the Sports Minister on pending national legislation and a consensus was reached,” said SARU president Oregan Hoskins.
“The possibility of retaining the Springbok on the left-hand side was discussed, as council had not taken a decision on the positioning and legislation remains to be promulgated.
“However, it was the decision of council to avoid confusion by making the move now and to prevent a future necessity of making a second change in due course.”
YOu see the main problem with people is that THEY ARE DUMB – so in order to explain the effect of something – you really need to SHOW THEM WHAT WILL HAPPEN so they can get it into their BIG MAC MUNCHING FAT HEADS!
SO thank you to the boys and girls at Ogilvy and HSBC for sharing this underwater campaign of what would happen if global warming is not stopped!

So i can understand people wanting to do something larger than life and really express themselves – BUT SERIOUSLY a picture from pins on a notice board of Mario – yeah its cool to look at and say WOW for ten seconds before going to take a pee – but was it really worth those months of no sex!! I guess if you are doing super mario pictures in offices you have had many many years of no sex – so a few more months and a finished mario board may be a fair trade off – GUYS I HAVE NEWS FOR YOU – THIS WILL NOT GET YOU LAID!
