…It’s Things Thursday: Andrews & Dunham Damn Fine Tea?

Andrews & Dunham Damn Fine Tea

Charles and Erik started the Andrews & Dunham Damn Fine Tea company because they were obsessed with tea.

Andrews & Dunham knows that nothing beats a perfect cup of tea, and a great tea needs no explanation. It tastes great, it makes you feel good, it’s good for you. It’s even legal.

Damn Fine Tea isn’t just ordinary tea with a fancy name however. No. Each limited edition tea is prepared using orthodox methods (picked and processed the traditional way) and packaged in tins that are covered in unique, hand-printed labels from Aesthetic Apparatus.

In addition, each tea is part of a themed series, and they only sell one series at a time. (So far in quantities of 400.) Once that series sells out, they move on to the next tea and the previous tea will never be sold again. (Probably.)

The first series included a Ceylon, a Chinese green tea called Dragonwell, and a black tea from Nepal, while the second series includes two black teas themed after boxers named Jackee Muntz and Thomas Sampson who are pitted against each other in a contest of strength and stamina.

Ringside seats to this epic battle between men and teas are selling fast though, so you better hurry!

…The PEN Story is amazing?

The PEN Story

The PEN Story is similar to Stop Motion with Wolf and Pig in that it uses a series of photos to tell a story, and does everything with a sort of stop motion/animation hybrid that works quite well when done correctly.

In The PEN Story, 60,000 pictures were shot, 9,600 prints were developed, and 1,800 pictures had to be shot again, and the result is a great story that uses zero post production to make it all work.

…Bob Turek’s Stereo is a naughty speaker system?

Bob Turek Stereo

Bob Turek’s speaker system, called “Stereo”, is a bit… unusual.

It’s part of his Object Remix series, and Stereo “forces the music source into the center of attention and creates a radically new user interface”.

Putting a hand built stereo amplifier inside of a fiberglass mannequin with an MP3 player and speakers attached to and protruding from the naughty bits and pieces probably isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but if you want a speaker system that’s hard to ignore, I can’t imagine one (or would prefer not to) that’s better than this.

…It’s Movie Monday: Trouble in Boro Olympus?

Trouble in Boro Olympus is a short form TV pilot for The Triboro, an episodic one hour dramatic series about a group of youth in The Triboro (Olympus, Black Mountain & White Valley) that join forces and stand up to the ring of corruption that has taken control of their towns. It’s a suspenseful, noir, epic, and doesn’t neglect all the teenage stuff that keeps things honest:

Are online pilots set to become the future of television?

With quality like this, I sure don’t see why not.
