…It’s Movie Monday: The Baseball Card Movie?

The Baseball Card Movie is an interesting look at a hobby that few understand, where people will pay up to $500 per pack of ‘cardboard crack’ and rituals become a part of the experience.

…The Sorapot is the perfect teapot?


The Sorapot by Joey Roth has taken the design world by storm by combining an architectural shape and simple functionality into a teapot that “brings tea’s quiet beauty into sharp focus.

It’s made from 304 stainless steel, borosilicate glass (Pyrex), and food-grade silicone for long lasting good looks, and “articulates the ritual of tea making in a thoroughly modern way”.

In addition to good looks, the Sorapot also stays green with a sustainable approach to packaging, including post-consumer recycled cardboard and molded pulp, natural jute rope, and the avoidance of tape or staples. (See TreeHugger for more details on the packaging.)

If you agree that this just might be the perfect teapot, then head on over to the site with &179 in hand, and one can be yours.
