simpsons kitchen

Joe Hamilton and Marcia Andreychuk of Calgary, Alberta love The Simpsons. In fact, they love it so much that they are in the process of giving their 1950’s kitchen a complete makeover with blue counter tops, a green stove, and corncob curtains for a near perfect recreation of Marge’s decorating style. From the CBC:

After that, she went searching online for corn cob-patterned fabric for the curtains. She lucked out and found the perfect match and sewed them herself.

Pulling them shut to show off their full effect, Hamilton proudly admits they’re “tacky.” Then he spews out some Simpsons 101 — that the cartoon family never actually closes their kitchen curtains. […]

The couple is saving up to buy new “retro-inspired” granny-apple green appliances.​

In the meantime, they’re covering their countertops, cabinets, washer/dryer, fridge and stove with colourful contact paper, which is similar to shelf liner.

Once the kitchen is complete, Andreychuk jokes they’re going to transform their basement into Moe’s Tavern. I’d say that definitely needs to happen.

Despite being widely panned by critics, the Attack on Titan live-action movie is making plenty of bank. The film’s cast were recently on hand at a press conference to celebrate the film’s “performance”–as well as highlight the beginning of the AoT TV series.

Satomi Ishihara, who played Hange in the film, had the honor of cutting the Titan cake—and she did like a proper Survey Corps soldier.

Starbucks recently announced on their blog that their famous Pumpkin Spice Latte will actually contain pumpkin starting this fall. More specifically, it will be made with 2% pumpkin puree and without any caramel coloring.

Previously, the PSL’s flavor was the result of an assortment of spices (like ginger, nutmeg, clove and cinnamon).

Not surprisingly, the PSL is Starbucks’ most popular seasonal drink. Since it was introduced in 2003, the company has sold more than 200 million of ’em. So why are they tinkering with the recipe now? A number of major food and beverage companies–ranging from General Mills to Panera–have recently caved to customer pressure to do away with artificial ingredients. Starbucks is simply following this trend. Will it taste the same? Will it taste better? We won’t have to wait long to find out.

Some artists rely on canvas, stone or clay as their preferred artistic mediums. But Steve Casino is different: he makes art out of peanuts. We’ve featured his work in the past, but there’s a lot of new pieces to share.

Steve’s peanut art runs the gamut: he’s done everything from mini-celebrity statues (the Game of Thrones characters piece is spot on!) to tiny horror-themed pieces. Honestly, it looks like this guy can do nearly anything with a peanut.

British pizza fan, Dan May, responded to a contest tweet from his phone company about getting free delivery. When they didn’t respond, he tweeted again and threatened to jump ship to the competition. Suddenly, the two companies were fighting over Dan and it snowballed into free pizza for a year!
