This is the place to post your classic cup images.

 

Solo is a long-time manufacturer and restaurant supplier specializing in disposable foam products. There are other brands to be sure.

 

Their most iconic design is the "Solo Jazz" cup (thanks roasty), pictured below. You can also post classic sugar, salt & pepper, and condiment packet images -- anything for the consumer-on-the-go.

 

Also, be on the lookout for the ultra-rare, orange cup. You've seen it in movie theaters on Seinfeld. We do not know the name of this cup.

Dart is another mainstay manufacturer, although, historically, they are not as adventurous as Solo in their designs or the names of those designs. Notwithstanding, I present you with the Dart "Red Accents Cafe" Cup:

Luke, the "Gatorade Marathon" cup is definitely classic. Thank you for thinking of it.

I see this thread blooming into a larger commentary. Discussion is encouraged. Considering some of the topics that have turned into 50 page affairs, I see no harm in posting iconic cup pictures and discussing their enduring societal imprint.


If you see any RL versions of these cups, snap a photo and post them here.

 

Moderators, I am willing to contribute a one-time donation of $25 dollars to the forum in order to keep this thread alive.

Luke, the Tim Horton "Red Cup" is a subset of classic cups I refer to as "Road Cups," or cups you get on the road, going who knows where. All that matters is you're driving into the sunset with a beverage in your right hand and the steering wheel in your left hand.

 

I like the images of post-use accumulation. Don't be afraid to post single cups too.

I will do my donation in 25 installments, if that is alright. I need to keep enough in the bank for a road cup every now and then.

Pyramid: the "Orange Crush" carbonation cup is refreshing both in it's recognition and recollection. I can imagine the smell mostly, and the condensation that turns the walls to pulp after a summer day.

 

The "Ornate Greek" cup is a TRUE classic. I can't believe I didn't remember it. This is real.

the holy grail

 

Thank you. If only we could find the Orange One, which I believe to be equally sacred.

 

I just looked to my left to find x2 Solo Mystique.

Big ups solo

 

The corollary of a RL manifestation of a classic cup is a sort of dark associative resonance, something uncanny. Good work.

      Delsin continues the Eevo Lute reissue project with a second Ballet Mechanique release; this should tweak the parameters for anyone fond of the New Electronica sound of yore.

      My album this week is a reissue of the ambient classic from 2001. It's been going for silly prices on Discogs these last few years. However, it's just been re-issued on vinyl and digitals.

      "An almost forgotten but bona fide Ambient classic floats up on a 20th anniversary edition with the legendary Glasgow-based Ampoule label, newly remastered with a bonus cut for added immersion - highly recommended to fans of BoC, Balil, Porter Ricks.
      Still every bit as woozy and gouched-out as we remember, Pub’s gingerly wistful debut album ‘Do You Ever Regret Pantomime?’ is a cult classc for those that know; a sublime example of a peculiar sound at its sensitive best. Back in 2001 it saw lots of rotation at our auld shop Pelicanneck and has since become prized for its effervescent melodies and light-touch drum programming that acknowledged and parsed influence from then-contemporary hip hop and post-rock as much as the prevailing trends of ambient and minimal techno. 
      A plangent, elusive sense of nostalgia that arguably prefigures modes of hauntology beautifully percolates the album, dwelling on a melancholy state of mind that, with hindsight, speaks to a timeless sort of wistfulness and tentative tension surrounding the early years of the millennium - which now seems incredibly distant and naive in the midst of 2020’s shitstorm. The tracks are perhaps detectably burred with a gently rolling accent and crepuscular glow that we’d attribute to Pub’s Scottish provenance and which clearly resonates with BoC, so it’s maybe best to play this album after theirs, when its vaporised textures and thizzing melodic tendrils will best work their exceedingly subtle yet palpable magic."
