Todd Mills, the visionary genius whose persistence resulted in the Taco Bell Doritos Locos Tacos passed on to taco heaven this week at the age of 41 after battling brain cancer. Mills never saw a cent from Taco Bell, but he knew his idea would change the world, so he bugged Frito-Lay to no avail, so he started a grassroots movement to show there was interest in the idea, and then it happened. And now that his work is done, he’s off to spread taco joy to other dimensions.
History often paints people as much bigger than they were during their lifetime, but in the case of Nelson Mandela, there was no doubt of his greatness and goodness as a human being. He fought for equality, justice and peace his entire adult life, and spent three decades behind bars for fighting the apartheid government of South Africa before personally leading his country into a modern democracy. There just isn’t enough good things to say about the man, and now that he is gone, the world has lost one of the truly great human beings that has ever walked this Earth.
Tito Chihuahua, the chihuahua shaped taco holder is a must-have gift for taco lovers, especially on Thursdays.
As you may know, I’ve been rooting for DC to get their shit together for a while now. Marvel has done a spectacular job of building a comic book like movie metaverse, and DC hasn’t been able to even keep their huge, world-famous characters in flight for long at all without endless reboots of the same story. But with Man of Steel 2, they’re hoping to finally find a platform to launch from. Superman, Batman and holy fuck finally they’ve found their Wonder Woman with actress Gal Gadot. This also probably means that the Justice League will feature somewhat in BvS, leading into a JL movie, and then DC maybe can gloat a little over Marvel not being able to pull Spider-Man and the X-Men into their movie franchise.
