Lay’s Releases the New “Do Us a Flavor” Winners. I Subject Myself to Them.

Aug 3, 2017 1041

And BOY, do I mean subject. (When I tried the Greektown Gyro chips a while back, a friend of mine described them as tasting like “drainage” – as in what you deal with during cold season. The assessment wasn’t inaccurate. I’m still scarred.) My guess was that Everything Bagel with Cream Cheese would be pretty amazing, that Fried Green Tomato would have some potential, and that Crispy Taco would be no more rare or wonderful than your average Dorito. A couple of my trivia pals from Wednesdays brought in bags for us to try during the game last night. (Hi, Emily and Ethan!) Well, well, well: my expectations were almost exactly reversed, as the Bagel one had this odd aftertaste and seemed to emphasize the seasonings less. The Fried Green Tomato just kinda laid there on my tongue, not really insisting on being present or interesting. As for the Crispy Taco, though…wow, now THAT was surprising, tasting more authentically like what it was named than the other two. (One pal,... ...

If a Famous Author Wrote a Pop Song.

Jul 25, 2017 62

Say, maybe an author known for his book about the green hills of a particular continent. That book predates the song lyrics this references by almost five decades, but this little piece makes you think, well, maybe he COULD have done this… Take a look, and then go take a listen to the actual song. – Todd Berryman Middays on WIN 104.9 No Joke Here, for Once.

A Movie Todd is Enthusiastically Looking Forward to Seeing…

Jun 29, 2017 139

image credit: screen capture from ew.com This is the movie that was being made a few months ago in Columbus. And, no lie, I was completely moved to tears by seeing locations I’ve known for YEARS represented in this trailer – for example, the gravel-covered alley that one main character was down, in this clip? That’s the way I used to go to get to trivia, from my old apartment. If you’ve grown up in Columbus, or just love the town, you’ll find a lot of pleasure hiding in these two minutes. Take a look, and remember that the movie will go into wide release in August 2017. – Todd Berryman Middays on WIN 104.9 Can’t Decide Whether to Invest in Puffs or Kleenex Stock   ...
