Ben and Jerry's / New Belgium Brewing Collaboration Beer Coming Fall 2015



If you’ve ever wondered what beer you should sip with your ice cream, the answer you’ve been waiting for is finally here. Ben & Jerry’s have teamed up with New Belgium Brewing Company to create Salted Caramel Brownie Brown Ale. Clocking in at 6.3% ABV, this ice cream-inspired brew is set to hit markets in the fall of 2015.

The two B-Corp businesses have long championed similar causes, such as minimizing carbon pollution and supporting sustainable agriculture, and this boozy, chocolaty brainchild is no exception. The packaging aims to create awareness for Protect Our Winters, an organization founded by pro snowboarder Jeremy Jones that seeks to lessen the impact of climate change on America’s snowy mountains.

“We’re big fans of New Belgium Brewery, their values and their fun culture, and of course their beer” said Jay Curley, Senior Global Marketing Manager of Ben & Jerry’s. “We’re excited for the campaign we’ve developed together. When two B-Corps collaborate, our fans can expect something both delicious and impactful.”

An announcement later this year will detail the focus of the campaign and the specifics around the partnership.



Apple no longer thinks farts are funny, bans them from Apple Watch



Perfectly encapsulating the struggle between base animal nature and the higher realm of the intellect that rages inside all human beings, no sooner had humankind invented a device that put the entirety of human knowledge literally at one’s fingertips than somebody used it to make fart noises. Originally introduced in 2008, the iFart app was downloaded more than 100,000 times in its first few days of existence and claims to be “an Apple All-Time TOP 20 App!” (It also claims to be “the world’s most popular digital fart machine,” for what that’s worth.)

But even with its new “Social Farts” function, the pun-rich app and its ilk are apparently not welcome on Apple’s newest piece of hoity-toity portable technology, the Apple Watch. The developer of something called Fart Watch—which basically turns your iPhone into a whoopie cushion controlled by your Apple Watch because who cares if someone sits on your iPhone and breaks it, you have Apple Watch now—recently sent a juicy, fragrant tip to the Apple fan site Cult Of Mac saying that Apple had rejected its app on the basis that, “We noticed that your Apple Watch app is primarily a fart app. We do not accept fart apps on Apple Watch.”

This is a clear change in policy for Apple, which didn’t have a problem with fart apps when it approved the myriad already available for iPhone and, as iFart proudly points out on its blog, iPad. But the new Apple Watch is far too sophisticated for such juvenile amusements and no longer thinks farts are funny, probably because it’s busy smelling its own





ESPN Airs Video Games, Twitter Freaks Out

Tonight on ESPN 2, sports fans across the world were treated not to the NBA playoffs or the burgeoning baseball season, but to live footage of college students playing Heroes of the Storm.

Yep, thanks to a partnership with Blizzard, the flashy MOBA—or Multiplayer Online Battle Arena, a genre that also includes the world’s most popular game, League of Legends—got a solid 2+ hours of air time on national television, complete with a live audience and professional eSports commentators. While Kevin Harlan and Reggie Miller called the Rockets/Mavericks game on TNT, Artosis and Day9 called the Heroes of the Storm game on ESPN 2. (Of course, this isn’t the first time ESPN has aired video game tournaments; Dota 2 made it to national TV last year.)

The stakes are very real—this is part of a Blizzard-sponsored tournament called Heroes of the Dorm, and the winning team will snag themselves full scholarships for the rest of their time in college.

As you might expect, a whole lot of people flipped out over all this. Reactions to the tournament—which, thanks to the nature of MOBAs, was rather inaccessible to people not familiar with the game—were incredible, ranging from salty to hilarious. “ESPN 2” trended on Twitter for a few hours, too, and scanning through the reactions is really entertaining. Because this is ridiculous.

Here’s a sampling of some of my favorite tweets about tonight’s festivities:

We have a new Spider-man!


Asa Butterfield (Enders Game) Is Rumored Frontrunner For Marvel’s New ‘Spider-Man’. This is coming from almost every single site. Colider, Screen Rant and a few others have Enders Game star as the new wall crawler. Perfect fit for a franchise that wants to go back to high school. Since he is there himself. Remember we this won’t be an origin story. Also the title rumor mill has the film titled Spider-man The new Avenger. Ekk I kinda hope not.


Singer done with X-men Universe:


Once Age of Apocalypse is done so is Brian Singer with the X-men Universe. That means that once 2017 hits and we have the Final Wolverine film expect re-boot time. So Will Marvel approach Fox the same way they did Sony? Try to strike a deal to get the Mutants back in their fold?


Batman in Suicide Squad?

Ben Affleck was spotted on the set of Suicide Squad giving fire to the rumor that he appear in the SS film. Also have been rumors that Joker will appear in JL.

A Bunch of Native Americans Walk off set of new Adam Sandler Film

The controversy over the alleged offensive stereotypes strewn throughout Adam Sandler and Netflix's upcoming western-themed comedy, The Ridiculous Six, saw about a dozen Native American actors walk off the New Mexico set. Now the film’s intentionally crass, incidentally contentious discourse has been revealed by way of a draft of the script.


A report from Defamer delves into a draft of the The Ridiculous Six script dated December 7, 2012 that reveals some of the repulsive repartee at the center of the strife. Here’s a list of the insensitive infractions in question.

BBQ Beating???


RIVIERA BEACH — City police say a woman poured barbecue sauce on her husband and went after him with a knife in each hand Tuesday, according to an arrest report made public Wednesday.


Officers say they heard a woman, later identified as Palmer, yelling from the home, but when she came outside, she refused to speak with them.


Her husband said the two were arguing about getting a divorce. He said things turned violent and his wife came after him, damaging property along the way. Police noted the home appeared to be ransacked in their report.

He said his wife ripped off his shirt, poured barbecue sauce on him and hit him. When he fought back, he realized she had grabbed butcher knives from the kitchen, so he ran outside.


Viven Palmer, 30, faces charges of battery, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and resisting an officer. She was released late Tuesday from the Palm Beach County Jail on $5,000 bail.

33-Pound Cat Named Sprinkles Found In Foreclosed New Jersey Home

A 33-pound, "grossly overweight" cat was rescued last week from the home in Sea Isle City, New Jersey, shelter officials told the Press of Atlantic City. When officers found Sprinkles, she was so obese that she couldn't roll over or properly groom herself. At four years old, she's three times her average weight.



"Whatever position she’s in, she’s stuck. She can barely move,” Stacy Olandt, a volunteer at the shelter who took Sprinkles in, S.O.S. Sea Isle City Cats, told the paper.

Local sheriff's deputies found the pretty kitty in shabby condition. She was covered in fleas and mites, suffered from an infection and had "the paws of a 9-pound cat and the body of a 33-pound cat," S.O.S. employee Mary Devery told the New York Daily News.


Her weight is reportedly equivalent to a 700 pound human who should weigh 180 pounds.

Now, the forlorn feline is getting a full makeover. She'll reportedly undergo a strict diet of four cans of cat food per day, and shelter workers hope she'll lose a pound each month until she reaches her target weight of about 10 pounds, Press of Atlantic City reports. She'll also need a tummy tuck so her excess skin doesn't drag on the floor.

The Daily News reports:

Sprinkles was a little standoffish at first and barely moved but now she seems to be adapting well to her new home. Devery said she is walking round and is friendly to everyone, but because of her girth is unable to climb stairs. Her size also prohibited her from properly grooming herself and Sprinkles entered with infections and a flea infestation.

"She's doing great. She's moving around and she's as friendly as can be," Devery said. "She's purring a lot. She's a very happy girl."

It wasn't immediately clear why she was left in the house, or how she got as big as she is, but you can apply to adopt Sprinkles or other cats from the S.O.S. shelter's


 China Cracks Down On Funeral Strippers

BEIJING (AP) — Chinese officials are launching a campaign to crack down on stripteases and other lewd shows that have become popular at funerals in some rural areas, the Ministry of Culture said Thursday.

The ministry said in a statement that it will tighten control over rural culture, where vulgar performances have been thriving because of a general lack of cultural events.

Such erotic performances at funerals are a relatively new phenomenon. Many rural people believe that a large attendance at funerals is a sign of honor for the deceased, and the shows are used to attract more people and display the family's prosperity.

The funerals also are a rare occasion for crowds to gather as villagers working as migrant workers in industrial centers return home to bury the deceased.

Performances of traditional opera were once popular at funerals, followed later by movie screenings.

In the last several months, people who have returned to their rural homes for funerals have complained on social media about lewd shows, remarking that troupes hired to play dirges suddenly changed their tune and began to peel off their clothes.

The ministry cited a performance by six strippers at a funeral in the northern province of Hebei and a lewd show by three performers at a funeral in the eastern province of Jiangsu. Those responsible for vulgar acts will be punished, it said.

"Such illegal operations have disrupted local entertainment markets and corrupted social mores," the ministry said.

Photos and videos of such performances circulating online show children in attendance at shows featuring scantily clad women.

Accused Burglar Arrested Wearing 'Warning: I Do Dumb Things' T-Shirt

Give David Durham points for honesty.



The 40-year-old Florida man was sporting a telling T-shirt when he was arrested Thursday in connection with a series of vehicle burglaries in Naples.

It read: "Warning: I Do Dumb Things," according to the Florida Sun-Sentinel.

Deputies said one surveillance video shows Durham breaking into a car after smashing the window, while another shows him walking around a parking lot and attempting to open car doors, according to the Naples Herald.

Officers also said they saw the suspect attempting another car break-in earlier this month.

DuAuthorities said Durham admitted to committing the crimes at the time of his arrest, reports.

Coincidentally, Durham isn't the first person to be arrested in the "Warning: I Do Dumb Things" T-shirt.

In February, Luciano Gutierrez, 66, was wearing the shirt when officials in Bell County, Texas, arrested him on his ninth drunk driving charge.

rham was collared on charges of grand theft, burglary, and criminal mischief.
