    Company Overview

    First marketed in the United Kingdom in 1902, Marmite is one of the world’s most popular savoury spreads. The distinctive savoury taste of Marmite (there’s nothing else like it!) makes it a popular spread for everyone, from toddlers to grandparents.

    This concentrated yeast extract paste is 100% vegetarian and gluten free, with no added fat, salt or sugar. Marmite is an excellent source of Vitamin B12, Riboflavin, Niacin and Folic Acid (every 8,5 g serving of Marmite provides 55% of the RDA of Folic Acid) which is good news for pregnant women.

    The product name may have been derived from a famous French soup, petite marmite. A “marmite” (pronounced "mar-MEET") is a French stock pot or cooking pot – like the one pictured on the front of the jar and shaped somewhat like the jar itself.

      Tyler - Wolf

      Tyler, The Creator is often critised for his brash attitude and loaded lyrics but no one can deny that in the last 18 months he, and the rest of the Odd Future crew, has gone from underground skate kids to household named popstars. Today he releases his third solo album titled Wolf. Interesting fact, one of the three hardcopy sleeves was done by illustrator Mark Ryden.

      Picnic at Hanging Rock

      This 1975 Australian film is something to behold. It tells the story of a group of girls form a finishing school that go on a picnic on Valentine’s Day. While there something bizarre happens and several of the girls disappear without a trace. Set in 1900, everything about the film captures the innocence of the teenage girls of this time. Here’s the trailer, give it a watch:

      Woody’s stammer

      Woody Allen is known for his quirky romantic films. The man has made a name for himself by playing the over-intellectual, nerdy guy that wins girls over with his charm and brains as opposed to his looks. With nearly 50 years’ worth of experience he’s become somewhat of a staple and each year many look forward to his new release (yes, he pretty much releases a film every year, and has since 1965). When watching any of his films expect to see a lot of this:

      Cara Brows

      Cara Delevigne has some serious eyebrows and unfortunately for us, they’re not easy to fake. Eyebrow tatooeing, over-plucking, dying, bleaching, and the toils of yearly fashion trends have left our brows worse, worser, worsest for wear, and now we have to figure out what to do to get those darn brows. Luckily, the internet does Youtube tutorials: http://youtu.be/ptM3...

      Sailboats

      ‘Sailboats and Swans’ is a series of photographs shot by Michael Chelbin who has taken the subject juvenile prisoners to heart. Never asking about the crime of the prisoner until the shot has been taken, Michael has managed to capture an innocence that cannot be ignored. Gazing into the innocent, mangled face  of Sergey, it is not so much a shock as it is mildly devastating that he was sentenced for murder and is sitting in the Juvenile Prison for Boys in Russia, having peered into what feels like a soul. http://bit.ly/V49I4g

      Psy is back

      The record breaking Korean sensation and inventor of gangnam style is back with his second single. Called Gentleman, the track employs many of the same techniques as Gangnam Style whereby he sings predominantly in Korean peppered in with a little bit of English for good measure. The video is pretty bizarre, but be sure it will rack up insane amounts of views. Check it out:

      Arrested Development

      The much lauded comedy show that was tragically cancelled after just three seasons due to bad viewership ratings in America is finally back. It’s been picked up again by American streaming company Netflix and will feature fifteen new episodes. They definitely didn’t make a “huge mistake” bringing the Bluth family back, that’s for sure.

      Keng Lye

      Keng Lye is a Singapore-based artist that meticulously paints hyper-realistic renditions of aquatic creatures on multiple layers of resin inside bowls and jars to create the illusion that these creatures actually live in there. The results are really amazing and it’s quite easy to see why it takes so long.

      Jaar Mix

      Nicolas Jaar has slow-built Grizzly Bear’s “Sleeping Ute” into an elegant, haunting, rather mesmerizing tune. He has also taken Brian Eno’s ‘Lux’ and turned it into something even more magical than Eno could. Available on record and sold as a two-sided record on ebay for $55 each, a lot of money for two songs, but the songs themselves are more tangible, tactile and talkative than a pack of smokes, and you spend that kind of cash on them all the time. http://www.recordstoreday.com/SpecialRelease/6103

      Guns

      America has a gun problem. It has more guns per household than any other country in the world. Its murders and culpable homicides are also caused predominantly by guns. In fact, gun deaths are so commonplace, guns themselves aren’t seen as the problem. Instead, the threat of crime is given the blame. Click through to read a very interesting article on why guns are the real problem. http://read.bi/11bOWOU

      Knit Boyfriend

      The knitted boyfriend is the latest craze in cold countries where a boyfriend is not so much a life partner as it is a source of physical warmth. Hence, a boyfriend, knitted out of soft, warm wool and designed for you to cuddle in bed. Realistically it can’t do much more than that, however, we have photographic evidence of the knitted boyfriend independently brushing its teeth. http://vimeo.com/39497405#
