General Mills Reissuing Vintage Cereal Box Designs

Hot on the heels of PepsiCo's appeal to nostalgia, General Mills has been quietly reissuing vintage cereal box designs for Lucky Charms, Honey Nut Cheerios, Cocoa Puffs, Trix, Kix, Wheaties, and Golden Grahams. We hadn't realized how insidiously the boxes of our favorite breakfast products had been visually busying themselves up — these clean, colorblock [...]

Schrambling, Decoded

Regina Schrambling files a post on the South Beach Wine And Food Festival. We try to help decode by adding relevant links:
Times must not be as tight as all the headlines are hollering... Apparently there was some kind of circle jerk going on down in Miami, where all manner of reincarnations of Marie Antoinette were [...]

Noby Noby Boy for PS3 from Keita Takahashi, Creator of Katamari Damacy [video]

Noby Noby Boy (のびのびBOY) is a bizarre new game released last week for the PlayStation 3.
