Starbucks and MamaPop Want You To Have an Espresso Maker ***Contest Closed***r


***Contest Closed*** Sometimes you want a new, better puppy with added tail-wagging power.  Sometimes you want a robotic hand and your own Dance Dance Revolution machine. And sometimes you just want a kick-ass cup of espresso.  Well, Starbucks and MamaPop want to give you a gorgeous espresso maker to celebrate the launch of Starbucks Vanilla Frappuccino Light (50% fewer calories and 60% less sugar)! Because one out of three ain't bad.  Contest details after the jump!

First, you will ask me: Palinode, is this espresso maker awesome? And I say: awesome? This biznatch is orange:


In order to win this decidedly excellent Ascaso Espresso Maker with a value of $550, all you need to do is answer my fiendishly not-very-difficult trivia question:

Q: What film director has his very own signature brand of coffee?

BONUS Q!: What is your favorite film by said director and why?

Leave your answer in the comments, ONE ENTRY PER PERSON.  The contest is open to residents of the U.S. and Canada and will run until noon on Tuesday, April 6th, after which time one lucky commenter gets the Ascaso Espresso Maker, sent to you direct by catapult. Or something. I don't know every last detail.

Also, because we like you and we want your choice of sweet flavoured coffee beverage to be healthier than falling down an elevator shaft, feel free to grab a coupon for $1 off your next Starbucks Vanilla Frappuccino Light below.

David Lynch, in a predictably unpredictable move (though maybe not so unpredictable given the key role coffee played in "Twin Peaks!")

I'd have to say my favorite Lynch film is "The Elephant Man," which still never fails to floor me with its beauty and humanity. Definitely one of my all-time favorites from *any* director, and as much as I love his more offbeat stuff, this film is the one that gets me more than any other.



David Lynch. My favorite is Blue Velvet. Thanks.

David Lynch, and my favorite is Blue Velvet.


I know this! David Lynch! And I love Blue Velvet-- something about the mood of that film that the other films just can't match. Love him!


I know Paul Newman has his own signature coffee so I'm saying him and the film he directed I liked was 'Sometimes A Great Notion' and I like this one because Hank & his father took a stand for what they believed in.
