This may just be the most random blog posting that RumbleChat have ever made, but it made us laugh all the same! This, um, tasty looking portrait of MJ is a creation by artist Cristiam Ramos. He uses an assortment of sweets, including gummy bears, M&Ms, licorice and peppermints for his artwork.
However, what we find even more impressive is the price that Mr Ramos sells his works for… we’re talking upwards of $18,000!
So are these works of art actually more than just a brightly coloured piece of edible popular culture? Are there intentional connections between the celebrity, mass culture and artificial, processed sweeties? Or are they just pretty cool?! Check out this portrait of Marilyn Monroe to decide…
Over at RumbleChat Towers, we believe that all food should be accessible and affordable. That’s why Hugo set up MisterTruffle… Yep that’s right, unashamed plug coming up… please go to www.mistertruffle.com for all your fresh truffle needs!
But having said that, getting your fix of the little fishy beads – aka caviar – via a vending machine?! Is that taking things a wee bit far RumbleChatters?! Or are you thinking ‘thank goodness for that, just what I need during a busy Saturday shop!’
Beverly Hills Caviar in LA have now brought actual caviar vending machines to three malls within the City of Angels. You can spend anything from $4 to $500 for the pleasure!
So, do you think this will take off in our Fair Isle?
Yes, this is as crazy as it looks. Strongbow – the masters of deliciously sweet commercial cider – have taken drinking your favourite tipple one step further with StartCap
Utilising RFID technology, the StartCap can be set up to an antenna and used to trigger anything you connect it to… The technology can get the music playing, turn the lights on (or off!) set off confetti cannons, or turn the tv channel over!
Strongbow’s genius idea can really get the night going. Still in prototype form, but looking to feature around events very soon. Not that we’re supremely lazy, but RumbleChat will definitely be keeping an eye out for it!
What do you think? How would you put it to work for you?
Big Kahuna Burger
mmmm…mmmm that is a tasty burger…
Yes indeed, the world wide web is just amazing for foodies everywhere, because ladies and gentlemen, you can search and find your favourite food scenes from your favourite films at the touch of a button. Looky here! It’s the recipe for The Big Kahuna Burger from Pulp Fiction! Well, it’s Dave Watts’ take on it, and I think his recipe looks damn fine to me. And I take my burgers seriously…
Hamburgers! The cornerstone of any nutritious breakfast.
