Two in one day... this sucks!


August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009

Regardless of what you may have thought of him as a person you cannot deny his contribution to music. I can still remember taking the plastic shrink wrap off of Thriller and listening to it over and over on my parents stereo. There was a time in my life when it became "uncool" to listen to his music and anyone that did was somehow less of a human being. Nowadays I've given up on the bullshit and decided that life is too short not to be able to share space on my Zune with both Michael Jackson and Pantera.

Frankly, I don't care who you are, when one of his songs come on you still find yourself tapping your toes and fighting the urge to groove even if just a little.

Rest in Peace, Michael.

The king of pop is dead... who will pick up the crown?

Five Guys Burgers and Fries... Oh MY!

I made my first trip to the new Five Guys Burgers & Fries location out in Webster, NY this morning for an early lunch. Erin had been there before and I was curious to try it based on everything that I had heard.

Well... it was good. I ordered the beast you see to the left... a bacon cheeseburger with grilled onions and mushrooms. I also got a regular order of fries to go with it.

The burger was really tasty... not horribly greasy, and definitely a mouth stretcher. It was easily 5 inches thick when I unwrapped it from the foil. I had to open wide and squash it down just to take a good bite of it.

I think next time I'll stick with the "little" version as it only comes with one beef patty instead of two. I might skip the fries as well and only because there were just WAY too many of them. They came in a cup which I thought was a nice portion, but as soon as I pulled that and the burger out of the bag I discovered that the bag had an inch thick layer of fries on the bottom. Suffice it to say there was a lot of food and frankly after finishing the burger the fries just seemed like too much to eat.

If you like burgers it's definitely worth a look, but if you're going to get the fries it might be best to bring someone to share with.
