And another one bites the dust. As this point each and every week will be a “shocker” to someone and a bunch of people will feel that the wrong person is being sent home. Last night saw the unfortunate end of Siobhan Magnus’ hopes. I feel that all the contestants have stepped up their game and all preformed well this week. I still can’t stand Aaron and really hope that the little girl voting contingency he has gets outnumbered soon.
Sadly I think Big Mike will go next week. The one thing he has going for him is that it’s Sinatra week and I feel like he could excel if he picks the right song. I also feel like this will be a hard genre for Aaron. It will be interesting to see what the final girl, Bowersox, performs. I think shes really talented but I’m still vying for Casey to take the cake. Well folks, we’re certainly in the final stretch…it ought to get interesting…and I’m sure we’ll be seeing more and more tears as the winner gets closer.
This is just fantastic. This 70-year old white man has more swagger than most 18-year old black dudes. From the little Snoop Dogg-esue C-Walkin’ to the tilt of the brim like Jay-Z. I wish this were my grandfather…well I don’t wish that my grandfather wasn’t my grandfather but I’m just saying that this guy is just too cool for school. I don’t know where this is but I’m thinking it might be either South Central LA or Oakland, California for the steez this guy throws down.
If Cupcake Pebbles or just a plain ol’ Double Sausage Egg ‘N’ Cheese Biscuit doesn’t do it for you then you need to think about grabbing yourself a Hardee’s Loaded Biscuit ‘N’ Gravy breakfast. This way you won’t have to eat anything else until dinner time. At 1,000 (per their nutrition facts) it’s nearly half of your caloric needs for the day. I must admit that it looks pretty darned tasty. Straight from the horses mouth:
The new Loaded Biscuit ‘N’ Gravy starts with a classic Hardee’s Made From Scratch™ buttermilk biscuit, which is split with a folded egg and a sausage patty topping each half and the whole thing covered with Hardee’s famous sausage gravy. That’s down-home.
The breakfast is available starting now and should be around for a couple months at least. The only question I have is how come there’s no bacon? Come one Hardee’s if you’re going to go big…go all the way! Looks like a job for Will They Build It?
With their latest menu addition IHOP is trying be the place to go for the newest crazy combo. They have introduced what they call “Pancake Stackers”. It’s a pancake, crust-less cheesecake slices, another pancake and topped with your choice of strawberries, blueberries or cinnamon apples.
What’s up with adding cheesecake to a breakfast item? I mean, I’m not totally opposed to it and I’d eat it myself but it doesn’t seem like something that would garner a wide audience. To me it feels like they are just vying for that shock and awe spot that is usually covered by Taco Bell or KFC. I mean don’t get me wrong….I would murder a stack of these…and I encourage others to so as well…but what corporate bigwig says, “Yeah, that’s what we need…cheesecake in our pancakes.” What am I saying….I would love to meet that guy. He’s my new hero.
Or she…it turns out…Carolyn O’Keefe, IHOP’s senior vice president of marketing says:
With our latest promotion, IHOP took the value we’re known for and topped it with one of America’s favorite flavors — cheesecake. We’re pleased to offer guests a delicious new way to stack up the fun this spring as they celebrate moms, dads, grads, or just a simple escape from their every day.
The local Brooklyn news team of WPIX recently did a story about a girl whose car was stolen three years ago and returned with added features. In time since it was stolen the thief swapped out the stock engine for V-TEC engine, tinted the windows, added over-sized tires with special hubcaps and custom valve stem caps shaped like bullet casings. Now aside from the engine, I would hardly say this was “pimped out.”
It’s always cringe inducing when you hear the middle-aged (though possibly Cougar worthy) local anchorwomen try to use slang and try to make it sound natural. It just makes them seem even older. Similar to when they try to pronounce South American city names with an accent…it just makes them sound whiter.
Recently there have been a few maps to show how certain nationalities view other parts of the world, from how an American views Europe, to how a Canadian views the world, and how a European sees America. Well this just got beamed in from the galactic outer-regions…not quite sure which sector though….I’m hoping he came from Omicron Persei 8, I’ve always had a thing for Empress Ndnd.
