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 assumption here being that since he didn't know, nobody knew.    Because obviously, nobody is smarter than him.
    •   Thanks for the reply. I was looking at the IQ pro hunter. It is a three pin, two fixed and one that is adjustable. The other would be the 5 pin micro.   i have thought about an HHA single pin but the sight makes me nervous to have in the rut. if ever I need to take a quick shot in an area I didn't expect a deer to come from
    •     Or possibly just one, since the two parties are getting more alike all the time.   Probably not a constitutional convention in the normal sense, but as we turn more and more into a police state, there is a definite possibility of a military coup.  There was a survey done in 2015, and 43 percent of Republicans surveyed said they could envision a military coup in the U.S.   http://www.thefiscaltimes.com/2015/09/10/Military-Coup-US-Surprising-Number-Americans-Might-Support-One     Republicans (43 percent) were more likely to say they can envision a scenario in which they could support a military coup than Democrats (20 percent). Perhaps that difference is related to having a Democratic president who some critics on the right see as overstepping his power.     (What's laughable is those same critics have no problem at all with a Republican president overstepping his power.)
    • Don't have to worry, there won't be a constitutional convention.    And we will have two parties or what passes for parties for a long time.
    • This Health biatchin reminds me of a dog that keeps barking and chasing a car down a street daily--then one day the car stops and the dog doesn't know what to do so it just pizza on one tire or walks away.
    • Juneau4 and Swiveldigger  each picked up a win- 200 whoopin pts. (That has to be an all time low for winning) and they didn't have the same drivers.   We had a couple contestants that had 0 pts and that may be because they just didn't get entered in time, so I'm thinking I can put it in where you can have a Mulligan for each segment. (Your low score for 1 week is thrown out each segment-Spring, summer, and playoff.  I'll try to have a winner each segment and a overall champion.   What do you guys think? I'm just thinking if more wish to join now it would possibly make it more interesting through out the year.
