Art and Chocolate coming crashing together

Perhaps better than peanut butter and chocolate combining.......



Chocolate…we all love it, but once you eat it, it’s gone. WHAT A DRAG!

Art prints…great to look at day after day but please don’t eat them!

Alas………..if only they could be put together in some sort of union - blending their strengths into a perfect medley of giving.

Well what if we said you could!

From the makers of REALLY AMAZING chocolate at Olive and Sinclair (new local chocolatiers) and the deft little hands of the letterpress boys of Isle of Printing (printers to the stars), comes the solution to the age-old saw of having your cake and eating it, too.

That is right friends, teaming up for yet another interesting collaboration together, O.S. and I.O.P. give you the Chocolart Collectable Art print Chocolate bar. Which is quite simply a REALLY AMAZING bar of HANDCRAFTED Chocolate wrapped in what we hope to be an equally interesting hand-carved and printed COLLECTORS’ art print.

FINALLY you can give the sublime yet transient gift of chocolate but still have the staying power of a good solid piece of art.

We hope you agree with us that it might be one of the more perfect gifts to give someone you really like. Chocolate and art together? AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Right now we have 1lb bars available with 3 different collectors’ prints to choose from

All 1lb bars are the original 67% coco bars.

The Smaller 2.75 oz bars are available with the first of the Straight Talk Series Art Prints.: “HOLD FAST”
We will have this bar available in the flavors: Coffee bean, 67% coco, and Sea Salt

If your happy and you know it wear a Shirt!

My Stars and Glory!

Something amazing just happened in this country.
Symbols and reality don’t often intersect in this life we lead. When they do you can feel it in your bones. All my life I have heard the claims that we reside in the land of the free, a nation conceived on the ideals that all are equal and equally free to pursue happiness. Inalienable, these rights belong to all people here and all people everywhere. As ideals they have stood for hundreds of year now, a destination we have hoped to attain. Yet truth be told, it has been a complicated journey. And on our path to discovery sometimes the new shore has been in sight and sometimes we have lost our way.

So it is that in some pertinent way this contract we have made with ourselves was in part fulfilled this January 20, 2009. I knew it, America knew it, and the world knew it too. People who had never once flown a flag in their lives lifted them up in joy, for although the words had been prior spoken they now rang more true. We want to be proud and we want the world to be proud of us – in both our personal and public lives. Friends it is time to take back our symbols and make the realities match the dreams.

A shirt can’t make you a better person, but it can remind us all to act as we want to become.
Join me in celebrating a victory of hope over fear, inclusion over exclusion, and the open hand over the closed fist.

All shirts printed on organic off-white American Apparel shirts. Made with Pride by your fellow citizens, who all hope to keep food on the table in 2009.

Please state sizes in Men’s M, L, or XL and Women’s S, M, or L and which design you'd prefer
$20 USD plus shipping

If playing Solitaire on the computer could could cure cancer...we would all live to be 120 years old.

A thought consider as we soon enter the world of digital TV broadcasting.
Much joyfulness in 2009 to everyone caught in my vast electronic web.
