Witch Tip

When writing your own spells, utilise the ingredients you have, not the ingredients you want.

Eye of newt and wool of bat are all well and good for Shakespeare’s witches, but unless there was some kind of lizard apocalypse you’re probably fresh out of newt eyes. Using the ingredients you already have on hand means you’re more likely to always have them on hand.

  • Botan: Why didn't you tell me the spirit gun could bounce off mirrors? When did you learn that?
  • Yusuke: Mmm, about ten minutes ago.
  • Botan: WHAT?!
  • Yusuke: Hiei was way too fast, I knew he'd be able to dodge the spirit gun unless I could shoot him from behind. That's when I spotted the Forlorn Hope in the corner and I thought hey, I'll give it a try.
  • Kurama: You weren't certain?
  • Yusuke: Well one time in science class they bounced light off a mirror and I thought it might be the same.
  • Botan: MIGHT? You risked our lives on a MIGHT? What exactly would you have done if the spirit gun hadn't bounced off the mirror?
  • Yusuke: Get chopped into pieces I guess.
  • Kurama: All the while we've been thinking you were a brilliant strategist. Really you're just a lucky fool.
  • Yusuke: Hey watch it, foxboy! And what's that word mean anyway?
  • Kurama: A strategist is someone who uses his brain.
  • Yusuke: HEY.
  • Botan: Now now boys.

This new Starbucks store in New York City’s Chelsea neighborhood, features a rotating wall of curated pieces in collaboration with Uprise Art, an online gallery for emerging artists, to create a physical space where people can connect with new works of art. The design concept for the store was based on coffee trees, with elements that reference coffee botanicals. The color palette of the store is also inspired by coffee, with shades ranging from the light crema coffee color of birch plywood to a dark espresso.
