 IMAGE FROM STARBUCKS I had the chance to try the Chestnut Praline Chai Tea Latte both yesterday and today, and I was excited. Chestnut praline syrup is great to mix with several of the other Starbucks syrups, and Starbucks is starting to utilize its potential after having it for several years.   The basic flavor profile is given in the official Starbucks description of the Chestnut Praline Chai Tea Latte: “Your beloved Chai gets a holiday twist with the complementary flavors of caramelized...

 IMAGE FROM STARBUCKS I FINALLY GOT A CHANCE TO TRY THE STARBUCKS TOASTED WHITE MOCHA after planning to do so since before its release.     Let’s start with Starbucks’ description of the Toasted White Chocolate Mocha:   “Our rich espresso, steamed milk and flavors of caramelized white chocolate are topped with whipped cream and candied cranberry sugar. And like the holidays, this drink is here, then gone.”   My Recommendation       As always, I recommend getting hot...

Mr. Robot, Season 3, Ep. 6: eps3.5_kill-pr0cess.inc, Recap and Analysis

TAKING PLACE DIRECTLY AFTER THE LAST (EXTREMELY INTENSE) EPISODE, we are back following Elliot’s attempt to prevent Stage 2 (blowing up the E Corp paper records building) from going off. We learn quite a bit in this episode about key story components that drive the show. Lots of Mr. Robot interaction, lots of Angela’s motivations and worldview, big moves from Zhang and his Dark Army, as well as some clues about the nature of the entire world of Mr. Robot. Exciting and effective...

Photo of the Day: “Take a coffee break” by Kappo Moriyoshi (明遊快)

PHOTO BY KAPPO MORIYOSHI (明遊快), FLICKR   THIS PHOTO, BY KAPPO MORIYOSHI (明遊快), IS MYSTERIOUS. I’d never guess it was taken in an airport, but it was.   This great composition features a barely-visible silhouette seen through glass, and excellent use of dynamic lighting. This is candid photography done very well, and it really stood out to me.   Click here to see our other Photos of the...
Do Yourself a Favor and Watch This 330 pound Robot Do a Backflip

Do Yourself a Favor and Watch This 330 pound Robot Do a Backflip

 I LOVE BOSTON DYNAMICS ROBOT VIDEOS, and usually, being busy with robot-making, they don’t release new ones on their YouTube channel very often. This past week, however, we’ve been lucky enough to get two videos from the creators of the most hilarious and disturbingly lifelike robots I’ve ever seen. Check out the video above to see a very impressive robot backflip (plus a very amusing not-quite backflip)....
Starbucks Releases Pink Cold Cups, But Everyone is Calling Them “Rose Gold” For Some Reason

Starbucks Releases Pink Cold Cups, But Everyone is Calling Them “Rose Gold” For Some Reason

IMAGE FROM STARBUCKS   THE INTERNET IS GOING CRAZY for these “Rose Gold” Starbucks cups, or as Starbucks officially calls them: Pink Cold Cups. We see here, again, that Starbucks has fully embraced their ultra-Instagrammable strategy that worked so well with the Unicorn Frappuccino, and I like it. The painted pink one is my favorite, but I appreciate all the flashy cups Starbucks releases, and the way they did the sequin one is really cool. If you want to pick one of these up, do...

   PHOTO BY CARL LARSON, FLICKR   THIS PHOTO, BY CARL LARSON, LOOKS LIKE SOMETHING DONE IN PHOTOSHOP, but it’s actually much more interesting than that. If you look closely at the right side of the photo, the stripes of color are actually three-dimensional tubes, and that they’re not all the same distance from the camera. The right side of the photo is the Le Moretti installation at La Defense, Paris. It’s a huge building-sized cylinder with tubes of different thicknesses and...

PHOTO BY SEAN DORAN, FLICKR   THIS SERIES OF PHOTOS SEQUENCED INTO A VIDEO, BY SEAN DORAN, AND WAS TOO COOL NOT TO POST. This is a wonderfully composed and tracked time-lapse of our sun which took Sean around to week to photograph. Containing beautifully intense reds and yellows, along with a great level of detail, this does a great job of showing the dynamic, super-powerful nature of the giant burning ball in space.   Click here to see our other Photos of the...

Recipe of the Day: Easy Savory Sweet Potatoes Recipe

Recipe of the Day: Easy Savory Sweet Potatoes Recipe

Sweet potatoes are a delicious and easy snack, or a convenient side dish for a more prepared meal. I love sweet potatoes, because there’s very little you have to do to them to make them delicious. Just a little seasoning and easy roasting and they’re ready to eat! You can also make them sweet instead of savory just as easily! They’re a very versatile vegetable.   Ingredients   2 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes, diced 2 cloves garlic, minced 1 small sweet onion, sliced 3 tablespoons olive oil 2...
