San Francisco Is Poised To Ban Plastic Straws. That's Got Bubble Tea Shops Worried

3 Comments
Bubble tea, or boba, features large tapioca balls at the bottom meant to be sucked up through a plastic straw. Vendors say paper straws don

Over 200 city shops sell the drink, also known as boba tea, which features large tapioca balls meant to be sucked through a straw. Boba shops say paper straws are much pricier and don't work as well.

This would be way more useful if they'd do it by county or ZIP code. Rent in the city can be double what it is in the sticks.

Looks like someone's Presidential Pardon List just got one more member.

I Liked That: A Game Of Line Rider Perfectly Synchronized With 'In The Hall Of The Mountain King'

1 Comment
line-rider-mountain-king.jpg Note: Just watch it, if you don't like it I'll let you two-finger slap the back of my neck. You have to give it a chance though, you can't just hit me because you want to. This is a video created by Youtuber DoodleChaos of the Line Rider (Wikipedia in case you're unfamiliar) course he drew over the span of a month that synchronizes perfectly with Edvard Grieg's classical orchestral piece 'In The Hall Of The Mountain King'. I enjoyed it. Especially after things start picking up about halfway through, so feel free to skip to around 1:30 if you really have zero patients. "What am I, a doctor?" FIX ME. Keep going for the video.

Accidental Wes Anderson

1 Share
The Subreddit Accidental Wes Anderson captures images from locations around the world that seem to be lifted directly from the director's work. They are often highly saturated, monochrome (one color, not b/w) and extremely symmetrical. They are exactly as you'd imagine them to be with a title like "Accidental Wes Anderson."

This gallery is a nice place to start for many of the Best Of images that really seem to evoke the Anderson style but there's plenty of submissions to wade through if you're looking for more. There are lots of gems and it's a nice reminder that the fantastic visual elements of those films do exist out there among us, you just have to be looking for them.
