Aldi and a Movie Review

6 posts in this topic

This Aldi joint is wearing thin on me.  I had to run an errand and ended up driving by Aldi and went in to find something for dinner.  We hadn't had pork chops for a while and as I was looking I noticed a 1/2 price sticker was on the package.  About 3 pounds of pork chops for about $7 was a deal enough for me but at 1/2 price since they expired Dec 31 I bought two packs.  Figured thin cut chops could work in Labs kraut thing or whatever.  They were terrible and I'd say a scam.  The first pack had 6 "chops" the two on top you could see looked like normal bone in chops, the bottom four looked like smallish shoulder steaks full of fat.  I fed the normal ones to my wife and daughter and I ate the other, worst pork chop I've ever had it was about 1/2 fat throughout.

Movie- saw the Hateful Eight last night.  I'd say a good to very good movie and since it's Western style it makes it more interesting.  Some bizarre but pretty funny "slapstick" moments in it, plenty of blood, and Bruce Dern (the bad guy who killed the Duke in The Cowboys) is in it.  It's pushing three hours long but only a couple slow moments in it but I have a short attention span.  My wife liked it too.  Hollywood in general dislikes it which is reason enough to see it, I can't remember why but people are offended by something.

Taratino calling cops murderers, and the sheer amount of violence in his movies turn me off.

Kurt Russel is in it Del and he's been going on about the leftys dumb stance on guns so that balances it out.  If you didn't watch any movies due to political reasons you'd only have Focus on the Family productions available.

Too much violence at Aldi's and Kurt Russell eating bad pork chops? Geez it's hard to keep up with you guys! ;) :D

Have not made it to an Aldi's yet. One in Owatonna not far from the East Wind Chinese buffet. Plenty of meat in my own freezer usually although I am intrigued by the mention of cheap liquor at Trader Joe's. Can go across the border and buy duty free stuff only so often. I see a couple westerns flicks advertised on the tube lately. Wife hates westerns so will have to wait until they show up on TV.

Only in a few cases does politics matter.  I won't watch Jane fonda.  Tarantino is too much into violence and gore for my taste. 

But, my previous post was speculation about the negative reviews. 

 

And to stay on topic :D I find Aldi stuff to be hit or miss.

    • The US doesn't have state controlled media at all. Well, didn't have. Now we have Bannon and Breitbart in the White House, and of course at Trump's press conference there was only a single reserved seat: front and center for Breitbart.   As far as psychological manipulation: you are subjected to it daily, but usually for commercial purposes. You can easily go the whole day without seeing anything politics related, but good look avoiding advertising for a day.
    • Worst buy I ever bought. I sold it the next week. I like 13 products but not this line of products
    • jobs and better paying jobs.   that's about it for me.  Sure there are some perks, but I'd give it up in a second if I could come close to matching my income in Grand Rapids. What sort of field are you in?   Anymore it's all indeed, monster, or some sort of online service.  Maybe a recruiter can place you in something, but it might be a sucky job.  I went to a recruiter a few years ago and they could put me a job in a few days, but it was sort of on the edge of my field and the job sucked.  Still, if I was in a pinch, I'd do that in a heartbeat over sacking groceries.   Nobody reads the newspaper and C-list is for sex work and scams.
    • Thanks for the advice, we do know the areas that we like have liked in the past. Cities is a vague reference as most people up here call everywhere down there the cities. We would be looking at the west metro area or nw suburb area.   Job on is the big thing right now ideally my wife could take a few years off to raise our boys as typically the "cities" pay is more than up here.. I have been looking but what is the best way? Indeed? Newspaper? Clist?   We we are a good distance in a way but we are close to our families. When we get company we get them for 3 solid days. Also once we had our twins it was more so they could see there cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents more often than 1-2 times a year.
    • The gdp is right around 18 Trillion Dollars.   Ten years of that, including even a little nominal growth is north of $200 Trillion.   So you are talking about 4.5% over ten years.     And that is assuming that these economists are able to forecast accurately.   We had other economists telling us about the "multiplier" where a dollar of government spending increased GDP by way more than a dollar.     I didn't believe them either.
