Brooklyn's very own Spike Lee x Absolut Vodka

Even though he lives on the ritzy Upper West Side of Manhattan these days, Oscar-less lensman Spike Lee will continue to rep Brooklyn until the day he dies.

That’s why we’re not surprised to see him team up with Absolut to endorse their latest limited edition of vodka — adeptly-titled Brooklyn. The bottle of apple & ginger flavored yumminess was designed in collaboration with the brainchild behind hit flicks like Do The Right Thing and Jungle Fever. The uniquely-designed bottle pays homage to Spike’s home borough and its signature brownstone –specifically the one in which Spike grew up in the NYC borough’s Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood.

Absolut is donating $50,000 of the proceeds from the sale of Absolut Brooklyn to Habitat for Humanity, which will build affordable green housing in Bed-Stuy.

Ribbon in the Sky (1985) Tokyo Japan

This is a very special song to us my Heart & Love..
Stevie Wonder - Ribbon In The Sky with the song called Ueomuite Aruko(Sukiyaki Song) for the remembrance of Japanese male singer Mr. Kyu Sakamaoto who was passed way at the JAL 123 aircrft accident on Aug 12, 1985
Live at Korakuen Baseball Stadium in Tokyo, November 3, 1985
Oh so long for this night I prayed
That a star would guide you my way
To share with me this special day
Where a ribbon's in the sky for our love

If allowed may I touch your hand
And if pleased may I once again
So that you too will understand
There's a ribbon in the sky for our love

Do Do Do Do Do...

This is not a coincidence
And far more than a lucky chance
But what is that was always meant
Is our ribbon in the sky for our love, love

We can't lose with God on our side
We'll find strength in each tear we cry
From now on it will be you and I
And our ribbon in the sky
Ribbon in the sky
A ribbon in the sky for our love

Do Do Do Do Do...

There's a ribbon in the sky for our love

Brooklyn's very own Chipwich inventor has Died Ray Lamotta (1942-2010)

Richard LaMotta, who turned his childhood passion for dunking cookies in milk into the Chipwich — two chocolate chip cookies embracing a chunk of vanilla ice cream dotted with chocolate chips — died Tuesday at his home in Chappaqua, N.Y. He was 67.The cause was a heart attack, his daughter Kayla said.

On May 1, 1982, Mr. LaMotta dispatched 60 street-cart vendors, each wearing pith helmets and khakis, to the streets of Manhattan to begin selling his 4 1/2-ounce concoction (including 3 1/2 ounces of ice cream) for what at the time was a pricey $1 each. A few hours later, all 25,000 Chipwiches had been gobbled — the start of something big.

Within two weeks, Mr. LaMotta was selling 40,000 a day, and by the middle of that summer, the Chipwich plants in Queens, N.Y., and Lodi, N.J., were turning out 200,000 a day. It didn’t hurt that Mayor Edward I. Koch posed for a photo — for no fee — as he bit into a Chipwich.Soon there were imitators, banking on the legal position that they could make a Chipwich-like product, using similar ingredients, as long as they called it something else; among them were Chilly Chips and Chips ’n’ Chips.

“That’s the way it works,” a competitor told The New York Times. “One guy comes up with a good idea, and everybody rips him off. It’s the American way.”

Still, Mr. LaMotta did well. By the time he sold his company to Coolbrands International, a Canadian distributor, in 2002, more than a billion Chipwiches had been sold by approximately 3,700 vendors in 36 markets. The brand was eventually bought by Nestlé, which stopped making the product because it competed with its own version, Ms. LaMotta said.

Richard Edmund LaMotta was born in Brooklyn on May 20, 1942, one of two children of Joseph and Mary Gibbons LaMotta. His father was a butcher. (His cousin was the middleweight boxing champion Jake LaMotta.)

Mr. LaMotta’s first marriage, to Rosemary Tadlock, ended in divorce. In addition to his daughter Kayla, he is survived by his second wife, the former Elaine Nadel; another daughter, Marika; a son from his first marriage, Thomas; and a granddaughter.

Though he first dipped cookies as a toddler, it took nearly four decades before Mr. LaMotta found his true calling. For 12 years, while studying at night for a bachelor’s degree in economics at Brooklyn College, he had worked as a video and sound engineer for AT&T and CBS. In 1975 he earned a law degree from New York Law School. Instead of practicing law, he went into what would eventually be a series of businesses, including one that sold food through catalogs and another that created a digital printing system for converting photographs into oil paintings.

But in the late 1970s a friend in need of financial support asked Mr. LaMotta to become a partner in the Sweet Tooth, an ice cream parlor in Englewood, N.J. There, and in the basement of his father’s home in Brooklyn, he began experimenting with ingredients for a perfect marriage between cookies and ice cream that would keep the cookies from getting soggy during the freezing process. It took a lot of taste-testing for Mr. LaMotta, a somewhat rotund man at the time.

Although the ice cream parlor eventually went out of business, Mr. LaMotta was able to raise about $500,000 from friends to start Chipwich Inc. In 1981, as sales started climbing, he told The Times that he could not foresee selling the company.

“I have devoted 20 pounds of my life to Chipwiches,” he said.

Now Get a Chipwich and celebrate A Brooklyn Great.

For those dougnut lovers That crave Mister Dougnut . they have brac=nched off and opened the anticipted coffee and Dougnut in the Shinsaibashi area.located on the Midosuji Line.
"Two rival doughnut makers—Krispy Kreme Doughnuts Inc of the United States and the Japanese operator of doughnut chain Mister Donut—open their first outlets in the Kansai region on Thursday, setting up a battle in the sweet-tooth market.

Krispy Kreme, which will serve crispy hot doughnuts at prices ranging from 160 to 200 yen, gave a preview of its Shinsaibashi outlet in Osaka’s Chuo Ward, which will become the U.S. doughnut maker’s 14th outlet in Japan since it entered the Japanese market in December 2006.

It will hand out pouches to the first 500 customers on the opening day to celebrate the outlet’s launch.

‘‘We want to create a doughnut boom (in the Kansai region),’’ a Krispy Kreme official said.

The Osaka outlet will also serve doughnuts featuring smiling faces, as an emblem of the local people’s renowned sense of humor.

Duskin Co also gave a media preview of its Cafe Andonand outlet in Chuo Ward that will offer premium doughnuts at 180 to around 400 yen, double the prices of those served at its Mister Donut outlets.

The Namba-Sennichimae shop will be the sixth Cafe Andonand outlet since Duskin first opened its premium doughnut cafe in 2007 in Tokyo’s Shibuya Ward.

‘‘We will offer a cafe with a mature atmosphere and relaxing interior different from Mister Donut,’’ a Duskin official said.
