Freeze the white inner core.  Return it to the mug.  Pour in your favourite beverage and stir.  Within 5 or 6 minutes you'll get a slushee or slurpee in your Slush Mug.  The stirring gives you small crystals, instead of huge chunks, of ice, rather like the way the Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker (Episode 347).

It's a Brand New Opening Intro

After setting up TWiT's "Home Office" in Pickles Gap, Arkansas (see Episode 830), Leo decides to create a morning mood, with a little help from Dennis Wunderlin and Grieg's Peer Gynt Suites, for the brand new day and the brand new week - and it's a brand new opening intro.  Watch how Dick and Leo prepare for it before the show starts.

A Warning Jingle for Too Many Jingles?

Some people complain that there are too many themes in the show.  Michael Rivers suggests that there should be a jingle to warn them that a jingle is coming.  Personally, Michael thinks that the Daily Giz Wiz is pure joy.

There have been similar suggestions before for a jingle to forewarn the playing of the Letters Jingle (because it used to start rather abruptly when it was on Leo's external hard drive).  See Episode 266 to Episode 278, and Episode 664.
