Smart Phones where maid for ignoring everyone while playing Super Mario Bros at a social engagement, don't you see? If you're not dumb and your not massified you have it made.
Even Candy Crush could make you smarter.
The government didn't shut down because "they couldn't figure out health care", the government shut down because a bunch of bungling, teabagging, grandstanding shithooks thought they could profit from feeding misguided hysteria to ignoramuses. I guess they got you too.
Did you, by any chance, also pen the one about PC backlash? This has the same sort of "take a valid point and then get so preachy about it that nobody wants to agree" flavor to it.
What you've got like many of us is a follow-through problem. Your best laid plans only last till conk out time. I'll bet you read your rant and thought "what was I gonna say?" It'll come back to you in a week maybe. Yes and those next day promises as numerous as stars in the sky. Have a good Holiday and keep the driving to a minimum.
... I actually also use a flip phone. That was just an example of a similar stupid complaint. I thought maybe the phrase "gosh but that gets my goat" would make that more obvious.
Its a message from the future about the past of a great writer
If this clown wrote this as a follow up to previous posting just below, then they're not even interesting when drunk.
Here's a piece of advice... Drink more and/or write less.
In regards to "Call of the Wild"-The behavior you called out in your post is illegal and inappropriate. I personally prefer to get a clear detailed description of the man including what he was wearing (hat, shoes, etc) and report him and his behavior. I have always found law enforcement in the area receptive and appreciative when incidents are reported.
I am a 63 year old woman who finds ignoring this behavior offensive. Please consider reporting offenders so that Sauvie Island Collins Beach remains one of Oregon's treasures as a great clothing optional beach for families.
This is UNBELIEVABLE and an outrage! This restaurant has been my the go to in good times and the bad, terrible times (and unfortunately there have been a lot more of those lately) and I've never, ever had anything other than delicious, nutritious, and ambitious food here and I'm not being superstitious when I say your review was down right malicious and pernicious. For shame sir, I will not be "consuming" your food reviews any longer, but I will be consuming the food here as long as they continue to serve it. Good day.
Ron Jeremy has a masters in education. Phil describes himself as white trash. Trust him, he's right.
Acuity = keenness. And besides, "dexterity" is especially necessary in Native American leg wrestling.
To "Call of the Wild" - Next time please sic your antisocial dog on weirdos like that. The majority of decent sunbathers will thank you, whether the weirdo is inside or outside the clothing optional section.
I'm willing to bet that Mr. Onstad has "about 13 meals" at most, if not all, of the restaurants he's planning on reviewing. Sounds kind of like he wants to be, I don't know, thorough, or something.
Is he "on the take" or "a competitor"? Why, because he doesn't like certain things about this place (for reasons that he spells out quite clearly)? So that must mean he's got an ulterior motive, and not that he's simply telling the truth about how he feels? OK. Have you read any of his other reviews? Even with places that he otherwise gushes about, if there's a little something amiss, he has no qualms about ruthlessly noting it along with his praises.
It's a review, stupids. That is, it's an opinion, albeit an educated one. There's no "wrong" or "right". This is what he is paid to do. And this is why we're all here. Why else would we be reading? If we want some cursory, unprofessional, biased, everybody-gets-a-trophy puff piece, we can just go to Yelp or to the homepage of the restaurant in question.
Despite the fact that my own particular opinions about (all) things are more correct than anyone else's (you people probably [wrongly] assume the same about yours), I'm still interested in hearing Mr. Onstad's, and said interest would drop off to being non-existent if I thought for a second that he was doing anything other than calling things the way he sees them.
(Full disclosure: I'm pretty sure that i haven't eaten at more than one or two of the establishments he's reviewed during his tenure with the Mercury, regardless of what he's thought about them -- I primarily subsist on beer and tobacco -- I'm just here for the good, impassioned writing...and to get all pissy with you pissy-ass commenters.)
It took THIRTEEN comments before I read Benghazi. Obviously you're all a bunch of COMMUNISTS, or it would be in the first ten.
Chris does say to use pasteurized, preservative-free juice, but I think that's just because that's the best and least fucked-with apple juice one can buy by the gallon. If you have an apple tree and a cider press (or unfettered access to these), obviously you should just use those instead.
JESUS FUCKING CHRIST STEPHEN!! CAN'T YOU GUYS GET ANYTHING RIGHT?!? THAT'S NOT WHAT 'ACUITY' MEANS. YOU'RE USING THAT WORD WRONG AND IT MAKES ME VERY, VERY ANGRY. THOSE ARE TESTS OF STRENGTH, NOT DEXTERITY OR THE ABILITY TO SEE.
Happy holidays, love you guys!!
This review is completely off the mark. I have been a customer since it opened. The food is fantastic and I have had all the dishes you reviewed. The hen was perfect in color and had a savory flavor. The pizzas are cooked perfectly and large enough I have yet to finish one. Sounds to me like you are a competitor or just someone who likes to rain on someone else's parade. I look forward to my lunch there each week and it is one of the few places frequent in the pearl.
This family sells a ridiculous amount of merchandise. My ignorant guess would be that the vast majority is purchased by those that agree with his views.
I tried the empanadas and arepas, both are FANTASTIC! I told him about this article and was thrilled. he's a really nice guy, gave my bf and I samples and explained his good and where it comes from. I'm def returning soon.
I use a flip phone, so I guess I'm that "jackass" who isn't ignoring everyone while playing Super Mario Bros at a social engagement!
