Less Than Three Dynasty

Posted by under *like, Television | Join The Discussion |

I wrote a post last night about how much I was enjoying the ECW program on SciFi recently, but by the end of the night it was no longer relevant in any way.  So, I’ve distilled it down to what I was really focused on and present it here as a replacement.

I’m not going to lie to you, if you have no interest in professional wrestling this post will not be for you.  Indulge me for a moment as I talk about it though.  There’s a lot of this stuff on TV (7-10 hours any given week), and most of it is not very good.  However, I’ve spent a lot of my life as a fan, and I’m very excited about a new group of characters that have come on the scene in World Wrestling Entertainment.

The Hart Dynasty are a new incarnation of some WWF classics that I couldn’t get enough of as a kid:  The British Bulldogs and The Hart Foundation.  This new Hart Dynasty is comprised of David Hart Smith, Natalia Neidhart, and Tyson Kidd.  So, it’s the son of British Bulldogs’ Davey Boy Smith, the daughter of  The Hart Foundation’s Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart, and the last student of the Hart Dungeon wrestling school in Calgary.  Basically, it’s the fusion of my favorite wrestlers from when I was 11.

How could I not love this?  The Hart Dynasty can be seen on Smackdown! beginning this Friday night on MyNetwork  at 8PM.  ECW airs Tuesday nights on SciFi (or is it SyFy now?) at 10PM, but I have no reason to mention that anymore.  And if you’ve read this far here’s a treat.

One Sentence Netflix Reviews

Posted by under *mixed, Movies | Leave a Comment |

Most of the movies that have come in the mail from Netflix recently don’t really merit a full post, so I’ll keep this brief to avoid spending any more time with these movies in my head.

Disaster Movie was just that.

Transporter 3 was no Crank 2.

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button would have been better as The Tragedy of Mearth from Earth.

My Best Friend’s Girl was like the story of The Three Bears: too good for Jason Biggs, not good enough for Kate Hudson, and just right for Dane Cook.

Big Stan must have failed to hold my attention since I’m watching it as I write this.

Caprica was worth writing more than one sentence about.

A Quick Comment on Comments

Posted by under *dislike, Miscellany, Technology | Join The Discussion |

My latest distraction has been caused by My Latest Distraction and other blogs as well.  All you bloggers out there will understand where I am coming from.  I know for me, blogging isn’t just about typing for the sake of typing.  I thought it was a great way to share my opinion on things and start a conversation.  A blog is a great way to start that conversation since it has a section for comments.  If I didn’t want to hear people’s thoughts on the topic, I would just make a website.

To alert people to our lovely page, we have it set up to broadcast to other areas on the web.  One in particularly, I find extremely frustrating….Facebook.  It is great, don’t get me wrong.  I love that people come and read what we have to say based on a link posted in a status update.  But if you have something to say about what was written here…share it with all the MLD readers.  Don’t just comment on the Facebook update, or the Tweet, or whatever various method you used to find us.

Comment here on MLD.  Let us know we are loved and appreciated.  I think most bloggers out there would agree….we thrive on comments  :)

Thanks.

“I chill Flatburger when I’m way out West”

Posted by under *like, Food | Join The Discussion |

Tasty (if slightly paraphrased) Beastie Boys’ lyric notwithstanding, I get “out West” very little to not at all. More than 99% of my eating gets done right here in the Delaware Valley. What’s my latest food distraction?

Flatbread sandwiches!

My Afternoon Nosh-Distraction

My Afternoon Nosh-Distraction

As MLD’s resident fat-man foodie, I am actually becoming more mindful of slimming down. To that end, I’m trying to downsize my portions. I’ve gone from the Footlongs down to the 6 inch sandwiches, but something about the 6 inch rolls are just somehow… not satisfying. Enter my relationship with flatbread.

Weeks ago, coming home from my night job, I stopped by Wawa, and began eating their Flatbread Cuban sandwich. I like Cuban sandwiches, and if you’ve never had one, check them out. Delicious, if you’re into that sort of thing. After that successful experiment, I felt it might be time to investigate the Subway version. They don’t have the Cuban option, but with chicken, cold cuts, and a veggie patty option, I didn’t lack for tasty alternatives. About a week ago, I did just that, worried that it wouldn’t be as (over)filling as the Footlong, and more to the point, even less satisfying than the 6 inch.

I needn’t have worried. All results were delicious. This afternoon, I had the above pictured meal. For as close a look as my Samsung phone could provide, check below:

Why don't these things ever look like the advertisements?

Why don't these things ever look like the advertisements?

I am full, and with good veggie protein that will last me through tonight’s ComedySportz shows. If only I could get a veggie patty option at Wawa, or if Subway could do a Cuban sandwich, life would be a tad closer to perfect.

Bottom line: 6 inch flatbread sandwiches may be the first step in my fat-belly reduction salvation. Even if they’re not, they ARE my latest food-based distraction!

The nicest spam message ever?

No links, a seemingly legitimate e-mail address, complimentary text, and a picture of that adorable Avril Lavigne.  I would almost want to keep this if Lacy/Maria/HowIMake$5000ADayOffTheInternet hadn’t commented so many times.
