From one “#bummer”, such nuance!
It wasn’t “because [he works] in a different genre.” It was because he’s a jackass that is notorious for treating people like dirt and for being a self-absorbed ding-dong. I mean, Maynard has collaborated outside his genre, with Tori Amos, with David Bowie.
Hell, I’ll take Tarantino on a bad day over the best that Abrams can give. Tarantino, to paraphrase Roger Ebert, can certainly make a bad movie, but never a boring one. Abrams is just a peddler of mystery box entertainment, but like in the game show, most of the time what’s in the mystery box is crap.
It’s sad to see so many people dog on vegetarians. Why are some people so threatened by what other people choose to eat?
allergic to meat
If this were a true allergy it would be unacceptable. But I thought the point to vegetarianism and veganism was healthier eating for the person and the planet and less cruelty to animals. I don’t see how using the same oil that us unhealthy, cruel, omnivores use does any more damage to people or animals than…
People are fine, vegetarians are weird. Also cyclists.
It’s cool. Some people don’t understand things without them being explained in excruciating detail. Fortunately, this is pretty easy for me to explain, even to a child: I'm not rich, so I care what I spend when I'm buying things.
What’s the opposite of a humblebrag? I think that’s what’s going on in St. Louis.
No. Bad. Go in the corner and think about what you did.
It’s exactly the same nickel and diming airlines do to thwart price shopping.
Here’s a voucher, pick up some capital letters at the desk.
That’s some bullshit right there. Whether the surcharge is $0.50, $2.50, or $10.00, any customer deserves to be notified before they get the bill. If they aren’t so notified, and in a prominent way, then they’re entitled to their irritation. This is particularly true if only a relatively few restaurants are doing it.
Don’t regret it, own it! Restaurants are just shifting the blame. If they wanted to give their employees healthcare they would do it but this way, they can say “we are doing the right thing because we have to and we don’t want to raise our prices”.
Yeah, some places (thinking specifically of Dirt Candy in NYC), don’t do tipping and say outright on the menu (and maybe also the check) that they pay a fair wage and include that in the prices of the food.
At one point during the initial backlash against the movie, with a lot of people saying the acting was bad, Heather Donohue said “I’ve got news for you. A pile of rocks is not scary.” I think she and the others did a great job and while the movie had its flaws I don’t think the characters or the way they acted was…
There is NO WASTE (or as little as possible) in the commercial food biz. RE: cows, the meat goes for steals, the hooves go for geletin, the bones go for supplements, and the hides go for leather. What do you think they’re doing with all the hides that come from Steak cows?
Not if the cow died of natural causes. Then it becomes recycling.
I think about this XKCD comic at least once a week. Usually more.
If you’re going to be possessed by any spirit, Rude Negro’s is the best one.
