The world of jam and jelly has been turned upside down by one company that offers over fourteen varieties, including traditional favorites, and some not so traditional. Anarchy in a Jar is more than just a brilliant name, they make some of the worlds best tasting jams and jellies. They state that “Anarchy is freedom from food tyranny.”, and after tasting their products, I agree with them!
They sell small batch preserves from Brooklyn, NY, this is how they ensure the high quality of their product and exceptional flavors that no mass produced jam is going to be able to give you. They include an extra ingredient that no “big-box brand” has, that ingredient is love. It’s true, it even says so on their website!
If you’ve ever tried a food product that was produced in a small quantity and quality ensured by the artisans who made it, then you probably already know that there is no comparison. You simply won’t be able to buy the eccentric and pleasing flavors that Anarchy in a Jar offers anywhere else. The good news is that people are starting to realize how great their lineup of jam, jelly, marmalade and chutney taste and you can find them in select Whole Foods and other retailers. However, based on their delicious product, we suspect you will be seeing a lot more of them everywhere that food is sold!

I am a huge fan of concerts on film! Recently MVD informed me about a fantastic performance on DVD by the Carpenters. For those of you who think you don’t know who the Carpenters are, consider for a moment if you have herd any songs from the 70s, chances are if you have then you probably herd a song or two by them. It’s rare that my generation gets a glimpse into the past in such a way that not only shares the culture and styles of the time, but also shows the amount of talent that was prominent during the time period.
The DVD is filmed in Japan and not only gives you a front row seat to a Carpenters concert, but it also shows how they were a worldwide favorite during the 70’s! The performance is phenomenal and a must see for any fan of their music, and even those who have yet to hear of them. There is such a rich history behind the band and their music, and they have withstood the test of time. To purchase a copy for yourself, just check out MVD’s website or click here: Carpenters Live In 1972.

If you have ever heard Ellie Goulding, you will automatically recognize her unique voice in her single ‘Lights’. Like her other songs, ‘Lights’ gives you a light, upbeat feeling. However, unlike her other songs, there is an interactive game to go along with the single. To go along with the free, bubbly feeling that comes with her song ‘Lights’ is a small game. It begins with the introduction, where the background is fading in, only black and white.
When her voice comes in, a light, similar to a shooting star appears. The longer you hold down your mouse, the faster the light travels. Moving your mouse also directs the light. When the chorus kicks in, the world of black and white turns to different colors. All along, the circles in the background bounce to the beat.
There is also a part when twitter usernames show up in the background. On the bottom ofthe loading page, there is an option to tweet about the site, and have your own show up in the interactive colorful world of ‘Lights’. After the first chorus, strips of color line along with the circles, leaving you in a world that’s even more colorful and bright. More thing happen as you progress through the song. The interactive game that goes along with ‘Lights’ fits very rightfully with the song. To experience this online pheromone simply visit lights.elliegoulding.com!
