Beer Can Appreciation Day

Yes. Today is truly Beer Can Appreciation Day. I know it's true because it was on Hallmark's Ultimate Holiday site.

While no one seems to know the origins of Beer Can Appreciation Day, it is speculated that it started in the country of Frat as a prelude to All Keggers Eve. But seriously folks, as an Art & Culture publicist it's my job to look for the beauty and value in even the most suspect of circumstances. So in honor of that - and Beer Can Appreciation Day - here is a gallery of inspired beer can designs.

Church Techno Rave Service... Well It's About Time

Sweden just got real. A church is offering a Techno Rave service to get younger kids in the door.

Now I don't need to sound off about religion. I don't care what anyone is preaching.  At some point you have to cut through what ever the dude in the pulpit is saying and determine if it resonates for you.


Can I get an "AMEN" for the Church of BPM

Star Wars Burgers, WHAT?!! Buns from the Dark Side, LITERALLY?!! Yes.

This is clearly a good time for me to start my Foodie Friday idea, because sci-fi/food lovers' wet dreams just came true (sorry Mountain Dew Code Red).

French burger joint - Quick Time - has just announced the launch of its Star Wars Burgers. (In case you have not had the pleasure of trying Quick Time, that sh*t is good. Not steak house burger good, we're talking perfect amount of time under a heat lamp and delightful DCYellow#7 cheese good.)

Anyway, they haven't put out a press release, but Star Wars Burger ads have hit and the money shot is clearly the Dark Vador Burger which has an unnaturally solid black bun which is both fascinating and frightening at the same time. Voilá!!!! (yeah, it's the one on the left):

Dude! And I thought those Burger King glasses were cool. Screw those! I wish they were never born. I want Star Wars burgers now.

This is a perfectly good reason to vacation in France this Spring, oui?
