The Kiwi Burger That Contains No Kiwi

Motion to place Kiwi burgers on every burger menu
Jul 31, 2013 11:30 am

I realize the Kiwi burger (also claimed by the Aussies) is no news at all, similar to how I've only just started listening to Blurred Lines even though it's allegedly the song of the summer.

Mixing functionality and style (and branding opps), the koozie keeps your can of beer cool while expressing the drinker’s personality in the form or a favorite slogan, professional sports allegiance or philosophical viewpoint. But where was the beer koozie invented?

Australian Producer Flume Starts The Day With A Bowl Of Honey Weets

Dec 6, 2012 11:01 am

Sydney-based producer and DJ Flume (born Harley Streten) sort of blew up New York City during October’s annual CMJ gathering of A&R and college-aged music media. He played like nine shows with the mission of signing an American record deal (still working on it), while bringing his experimental hip-hop laptronica to the masses (check!).

Included: Rene Redzepi, David Chang, and a tribute to Heston Blumenthal.
