The Founder/McDonalds Review | Evan Reviews Everything

The Founder

4/5

Great movie, well done, good casting, its gonna be a yes from me dawg.

Man. I knew there was a reason I hated McDonalds. And no, its not just because they have THE SHITTIEST food in the fast food industry. But because of the “why” they have the shittiest food.

I never knew the story of McDonalds. But it’s one I’ve heard 1000 times. Piece of shit business/corporate man ruining the artistic vision of ones dreams.

This is a sad story… and again one that happens to many times in this world.. if you were like me and haven’t watched this yet and do not know the story ill fill you in (spoiler but its history so) Ray Kroc, a struggling and greedy businessman sees opportunity when he stumbles upon what he sees as the most revolutional restaurant in the industry, the real piece of art, the vision, crafted by 2 brothers who started with nothing but a dream. Long story short he ends up screwing them by making a ton of changes they don’t want as well as buying the land that the McDonalds are built on, making a huge profit.

In the end, the brothers sell their shares of the company to Kroc, but he has to screw them one last time by not including the royalties in the written contracts, instead he gave them his word that he would pay them. I would not have trusted him.

This dood robbed them. And I realize he’s dead and everything but I still see Mcdonalds as this evil corporation, because that’s what they are.

Too bad it couldn’t have been the Macdonalds brothers vision.

Everything they didn’t want to go wrong with their brand did because of Kroc, the quality fell, tremendously I assume by peoples reaction in this movie eating McDonalds from back in the day lol. Not everyone had their vision. Not everyone cared, look at the McDonalds of today, disgusting.

And because of that, IMO, McDonalds is the worst Fast Food Franchise out there, when if it stuck to the original vision is could be on the scale of in-and-out. Im sure McDonalds is bigger but quality is what matters and any person in their right mind would pick a in-and-out burger over McDonalds every day of the week.

Anyway, DONT EAT MCDONALDS!!! Thats My review on that.

BUT DO WATCH THE FOUNDER, GREAT MOVIE AND GREAT PERFORMANCE BY MICHAEL KEATON!

Nashville | Downtown, Nashville, TN

Me and my Brother decided to go down to Nashville to see my Mom’s new house down there. She and my stepdad sure do have an eye when it comes to picking out awesome houses. Her place is stunning, in a wonderful area, and she has a pool as well as a awesome guesthouse with a hot tub, its a little slice of heaven. Her place is just outside of Nashville.

We went out to explore Nashville with my family, it was a lot of fun, such an awesome city. Almost every bar had an upstairs deck area over looking the river which was a stunning view. The weekend we happened to be there, college races were going on the river so it just added to the scene, it was awesome. There were a lot of underground bars there too which I found very cool, we walked by the Coyote Ugly Saloon so of course we had to walk in there. And of course everyone in there was on the bar going crazy taking belly shots and that sort, I thought it was a good time but we didn’t stay long.

We walked in to a candy story down there and ran into Kelly Ann Conway, President Trump’s Campaign Manager, I was hoping to run into Reese Witherspoon, but I suppose it was kinda cool to see her in person, didn’t move me one bit though, but if I had ran into Reese Witherspoon that would have been a different story.

We pretty much went thru every bar, and I gotta say they were all really cool, all of them had country themes and had a lot of nice wooden furniture and nice lighting, and seemed like a good atmosphere and nice people in each bar we went to. I really want to go back and have a drink at night on one of those rooftops, sounds like a good time.

We went to a local spot down there, and for the life of me I cant remember the name, all I know is I got some pulled pork from there and it was amazing, not the best I ever had but some of the best, and they had a nice selection of sauces there. Ill have to edit this later once I ask my Mother the name of that Restaurant.

We enjoyed some Budweisers while we swam in the pool and relaxed in the hot tub while catching up with our mom and step dad. It was such a nice area in their backyard, there were houses near by but it was very secluded with their tall plants and fence.

I gotta say I loved the Nashville area and can’t wait to go back.

Pretty Lights Live | Episode 8 | Northerly Island | Chicago, IL

What a treat to see Pretty Lights Again! I’ve seen him too many times to keep track but every time it feels like its the first time, lol. This was how I kicked off my new found freedom, which was no doubt the best choice for my first event to celebrate freedom.

I headed to Chicago wit Lindsey, when we arrived at our hotel, we were both less than satisfied, but what are you gonna do? Make the best of it, that’s what! We got a nice buzz going, ate some edibles and headed out for the first day of jams.

This was the first time I had been to Northerly Island, and I gotta say that I thought the Venue was pretty sick. They had an area with seats for when you needed to take a break or sneak off to do some party snacks. They had very limited drink offers, as most events do, but these choices were some off brand stuff I never even heard of. Usually whether its a festival, show, concert, event or whatever, they usually have Bud, Budlight, Coors, but none of that here, AND this off brand beer was like 18 bucks a tall boy, no no no, way too much, good thing I had my flask! CHEERS!

Once the show was done they let us loose on downtown Chicago, Me and Lindsey found a Philly cheese steak place that was the 2nd most bomb cheese steak I ever had Ill have to look up the name of the place for a proper shout-out.

The next day before the show we got nice and lit and walked around Chicago. Out of all the times I’ve been to Chicago, I’ve never been to Cloud Gate, so we made sure to check that out, which was really cool, but it was hard to get a cool picture because of all the people.

We also checked out the aquarium, which at first I was super excited for, I had been hearing good things for quite some time. But I was heavily disappointed in our experience, it was super costly per person, you could never afford to bring more than 1 or 2 family members, and once we got in we found many large large fish crammed into little aquariums, it was very sad and I was surprised the animals were being held like this, one fish was so big it literally could not turn around in its small aquarium. The dolphin show was cool and they had a very big swim area. Got food from there that wasn’t all that great either, so overall I wouldn’t recommend it, but if you don’t mind forking over the dough theres a few cool things about it.

We went to the Art Museum as well which was really cool, if you have never been there you should check it out there are some amazing pieces in that building. And the surrounding area, is simply beautiful, with gardens, fountains, paths, and trails you can walk through, its a great place to take pictures. The food they offer isn’t half bad either.

Those were the main highlights of this trip to Chicago, been there many times, and I’m sure ill be there many more times in the future. LOVE THE WINDY CITY.
