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 and Twin Peaks because I loved the mystery and suspense every week when it was on television. That show was a rare treat that hasn't been duplicated successfully since.

Mary T

David Lynch - I love Sci-F so Dune has to be one of my favourite movies of David Lynch. Twin Peaks was my favourtie TV series.

Deci Worland

David Lynch

Deci Worland

Elephant Man, the tragedy of the human condition.


David Lynch is the one

Lindsay Simmons

David Lynch - Dune, his best

Jeff Herman

It's most definitely David Lynch. My favourite movie by David Lynch was actually Wild At Heart. I'm not usually a Nicholas Cage fan, but I found the direction of the movie to be amazing. It carried the atmosphere of all of David Lynch's works, where everything feels kind of surreal. But I found it to be less dark, overall, than most of his films. It allowed me to get more entertainment out of the film.

Jeanette Huston

David Lynch and I like Dune and Twin Peaks. I like interesting movies.

Jennifer C.

David Lynch - Elephant Man

Hope Ryckman

David Lynch and my favorite movie he directed was: ELEPHANT MAN.

amy rosso

David Lynch- Elephant Man, reminds us to treat everyone with compassion.

R Campbell

David Lynch-Dune, Sci-Fi always brings new ideas to our imagination!


David Lynch

I liked his move Eraserhead. It was so weird and so bizarre, but it's uniqueness made it a movie you had to watch to the finish.


David Lynch
What an awesome machinge, funky.

Pat Battles

David Lynch

I like The Elephant Man best because it was a really sympathetic film about a man with a disfiguring illness who just wanted to be normal....and because I like films based on historical events.

Jennifer Garrett

DAVID LYNCH and that would of course be Blue Velvet; by the way, I love espresso!

Richard Licata

David Lynch


David Lynch is the answer to #1.

#2. Well, not a Lynch fan. I'll say Mulholland Drive but that's really the only one I've seen all the way through.

Pamela K.

David Lynch, The Elephant Man because of John Hurt.


David Lynch Is the director.
My favorite movie by him is Mulholland Drive. I like it because of the premise of a woman surviving a car crash yet not knowing who she is; I thought it was a unique twist for a movie and liked the whole concept. Enjoyed the movie too.


David Lynch

The Elephant Man because I am a black and white movie lover. It is certainly not one of my favorite movies but I'm not a huge fan of Lynch's work.

My favorite film ever? King Kong 1933. Why? Because there is no one more elegant in the hands of a great ape than Fay Wray nor anything more beautiful than that famous line "It was beauty killed the beast."


David Lynch!! Mulholland Drive...no question about it!!

LeAndrew Taylor

David Lynch! Favorite David Lynch movie: Blue Velvet!
