Music + Starbucks = Very Cool

Other Beverage

Tuesday was a great day for music with U2’s No Line on the Horizon and Neko Case’s Middle Cyclone both being released. First off, Mutineer Graphics Correspondent Jordan Luckman bought both albums at Starbucks, which is very cool by itself. He already had a track for the Neko Case album via a “Pick of the Week” card from Starbucks, which he acquired the week before at Starbucks, giving him free access to “People Got a Lotta Nerve” on iTunes.

Hindu Group Makes Cola From Cow Urine

Other Beverage

Urine Sale

If you saw the last issue of Mutineer and our special report on Seattle’s Jones Soda Co., then you know that we can appreciate some good soda, but Hindu cow urine cola is certain to test the mettle of even the most die-hard Mutineer soda junkies.

The organization behind the cow urine cola is the Rashtriya Swayamesevak Sangh (RSS), a “Hindu nationalist conservative party [that] plans to sell ‘Gau Jal’, or ‘Cow Water’, as a rival to soft drink giants Pepsi and Coca Cola”, according to MSN News UK. See the full post »

Hornsby’s Hard Cider

Other Beverage

Hornsby's Hard Cider

It has been years since I had a Hornsby’s Hard Cider. To be honest I really thought that I just wasn’t cut out to enjoy hard cider, my palate responds to savory much better than sweet. All that said, I am willing to give almost anything a second chance so I opened a Hornsby’s Crisp Apple and poured it into a beer chalice. The moment I put my nose to the glass I knew this was a cider for me. It smells like an orchard of warm ripe apples basking in the sun the sweet scent wafting through the trees. The smell is great, but the taste is even better; super crisp, lots of apple flavor and yet very light on the palate with none of the stickiness that I usually associate with cider. The sweetness is balanced by what tastes like bitterness from the skin of the apple and works very well. Overall I would say I was very impressed with the quality of Hornsby’s Crisp Apple and would recommend it to anyone as a change from the norm.

Starbucks To Release Instant Coffee; In Other News, Folgers Has No Plans To Open Coffee Shops

Other Beverage

Emily Bryson York and Jeremy Mullman of Advertising Age are reporting that “Premium java giant Starbucks is venturing into what some would consider lowbrow territory with a soluble-coffee product called Via, according to three executives familiar with the matter”. Lowbrow territory is not unfamiliar to Starbucks CEO Howard Shultz, who wrote the textbook on lowbrow moves by selling the Seattle Sonics basketball team to a cold-blooded ownership group from Oklahoma, who, to the surprise of no one, moved the Seattle team to Oklahoma (who are currently enjoying a dismal 13-40 season).

Vitamin Water Conspiracy

Other Beverage

Not since the days of Joseph McCarthy have we seen a witch hunt like the one being conducted on athletes regarding banned substance use. Even the great Alex Rodriguez (who is now officially “A-Roid” according to our graphics guy and embittered Seattle Mariners fan Jordan) has fallen prey to steroid allegations.

Carbon Fiber Coasters

Other Beverage

Carbon Fiber Coasters

Two of my favorite things in the world that I thought would never meet are, fine beverage and carbon fiber. Why I love a good beverage, perhaps a beer, is obvious; it’s delicious, the beer culture is relaxing, the artistry within the brewing process, and well there is always the buzz. I love carbon fiber because it’s stronger than steel, lighter than aluminum, and most importantly, they make race cars out of it. Well, now the dream has finally come true, carbon fiber coasters with a stainless steel stand are available from Carbon Fiber Direct. This item is probably only for the fanatic as the price is a steep $149.99, they are still very cool.
