Featuring Dave England
Partnering with A24 Films, we are celebrating the release of Kevin Smith’s new film TUSK in a very nontraditional way. Keying in on the director’s admission that the film “was born in a blaze,” TWBE has created packaging inspired by the film for two rebranded strains of medicinal marijuana. Named ‘Mr. Tusk’ and ‘White Walrus’, and available through September 26th, these strains of pot have been grown by Kushman Veganics as “Veganic Chernobyl (GT)” and “Kens OG” for Buds & Roses, one of Los Angeles’s oldest and most respected dispensaries. Accompanying this in-store promotion, limited edition herb grinders bearing the Tusk logo will be given away to patients of the dispensary and fans of the film (18+ years of age). And what would all of this be without a user-generated contest? Starting September 10th and running until the release of Tusk on September 19th, we’ll be asking fans to submit to instagram their best pictures of #WalrusBreath, which is most easily described as “the act of creating tusks by blowing smoke or vapor out of one’s nostrils.”

The prices for some of these things in NYC are crazy, but I guess that’s what you have to pay for delicious. I was first introduced to the patty melt during a brief semester at Ole Miss, and the craving for this burger topped with onions and cheese, crammed between two slices of rye doused in butter, and finished in a frying pan has never relented. If it’s on the menu, it’s being ordered.

A random benefit from last month’s earthquake in Napa Valley? Water. Lots of it. Seems all that shaking in the earth opened up fissures in the rocks that have allowed massive deposits of groundwater to reach the surface, turning once parched land into pockets of green. At one creek north of Vallejo, an estimated 200,000 gallons of water are flowing daily down the tiny waterway into the bay. Like all good earthly things though, the surplus is bound to stop. As one hydrogeologist said: “There is only so much water in there. As the water table lowers, the water flow diminishes. It’s like a bank account. You’ve just reached into the bank account and borrowed some money, but the spending spree will eventually end.”
