Arnold Day XIII

Arnold Day XIII is here!

Every summer, a celebration is held in honor of the most impressive human being ever to walk out of Austria and into the hearts of American filmgoers: Arnold Schwarzenegger.

What began thirteen years ago with two guys, a 19 inch TV, a VCR , a fistful of cinema classics, a bellyful of Lazy Moon pizza and many liters of beer has now blossomed into a full-fledged holiday.

Join us any time (or the entire time) from noon until close on Saturday, July 29th at Lazy Moon UCF, as we’ll be celebrating our hero the only way we know how:

By dressing up as our favorite Arnold characters and screening as much of the man’s oeuvre as humanly possible.

There will be an Arnold slice. There will be cake. There will be singing. There will be poorly delivered one-liners. There will be “Arnold” himself.

Kevin O’Connor’s Top 5 Places in History to Grab a Slice

5.  Italy, 1889. Go back to the beginning when Raffaele Esposito literally invented pizza as we know it. At the request of Queen Margherita of Savoy—who had the royal power to behead anybody who ordered anchovies on their slice—Esposito was the first to top a piece of flatbread with tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil. And like that, modern pizza was born from modest, but delicious beginnings.

4. New York City, 1905. Head down to Lombardi’s, widely believed to be the first pizzeria in the United States, and enjoy a slice said to be so delicious that it will make you forget you’re in a time when women couldn’t vote.

3. Chicago, 1925. The Windy City is the home of deep-dish pizza, which according to this Chicagoan, is arguably the world’s greatest style of pizza cuisine. Legend has it that the early incarnations of the deep-dish pie were so thick that the Chicago Police Department used them as protection from Al Capone’s stray bullets.

2. Seattle, 1994. The explosion of the grunge rock scene in the 90’s was subtly, but unforgettably, complimented by the pizza stains on all the local band members’ flannels.

1. Orlando, 2004. Lazy Moon opens and UCF applications increase 475%.

Kevin O’Connor’s Top 5 Pizza Toppings

5. Pepperoni. No surprise here. Who doesn’t love a spicy sliver of pepperoni on their slice? I know I do. So much so that my next selection is…

4. Pepperoni. A logical follow-up to pepperoni, ‘cause who can resist a double helping of that sweet ‘n’ spicy sausage on an already pepperoni’d pizza pie? Certainly not me. As for number 3, I gotta go with…

3. Pepperoni! A controversial selection, for sure. Many of this list’s contributors and correspondents didn’t believe that pepperoni—the sweetest meat on Fleet Street—deserved more than two mentions. “Madness,” they screamed. They have since been fired and replaced—and the new writers all agree that the runner-up for the pizza topping championship is….

2. PEPPERONI. That’s right. Despite the fact that I am being sued for my swift action against the writers who dissed pepperoni, I will not be going down without a fight. So, you can all watch in amazement/horror as I elect the number one choice for greatest pizza topping in the existence of mankind…

1. P-E-P-P-E-R-O-N-I. OH YEAH. What do you think about THAT, Better Business Bureau? Did I just blow your mind? You didn’t think I would do it, but I did it. Bestowing upon this heavenly spiced ambrosia the highest honor: All 5 spots in this week’s Top 5 list! Sure, you can sue me, fire me, and convict me of wrongful termination, but I will have the last word!

What will those last words be? ….I’ll have my desk cleaned out by 5, but charcuterie is forever.

5 Famous Love Letters to Pizza

In an age of emails and texts, it’s rare that we sit and reflect on our relationships the way couples used to do in love letters. As wedding season heats up, we’re sharing some of the steamiest letters penned by the famous (and infamous) to their beloved flatbread.  

As these romantic words prove: There is no truer love than that between human and pizza.

Napoleon Bonaparte

‘The charms of the incomparable PIZZA kindle continually a burning and a glowing flame in my heart…. I thought that I loved you months ago, but since my separation from you I feel that I love you a thousand fold more. Each day since I knew you, have I adored you more and more.”

Ernest Hemingway

“I can’t say how every time I ever put my arms around you I felt that I was home.”

Marilyn Monroe

“I don’t know how to tell you just how much I miss you. I love you till my heart could burst. All I love, all I want, all I need is you—forever. I want to be just where you are and be just what you want me to be. I know it’s lousy of me to be so late so often, and I promise to try a million times harder, I promise. – Love, Marilyn”

Elizabeth Taylor

“My darling PIZZA – I wish I could tell you of my love for you, of my fear, my delight, my pure animal pleasure of you — (with you) — my jealousy, my pride, my anger at you, at times. Most of all my love for you, and whatever love you can dole out to me — I wish I could write about it but I can’t. I can only ‘boil and bubble’ inside and hope you understand how I really feel. Anyway I lust thee…”

Orson Welles

“…I suppose most of us are lonely in this big world, but we must fall tremendously in love to find it out. The cure is the discovery of our need for company — I mean company in the very special sense we’ve come to understand since we happened to each other — you and I. The pleasures of human experience are emptied away without that companionship — now that I’ve known it; without it joy is just an unendurable as sorrow. You are my life — my very life. Never imagine your hope approximates what you are to me. Beautiful, precious little baby — hurry up the sun! — make the days shorter till we meet. I love you, that’s all there is to it. – Your boy, Orson”

Kevin O’Connor’s Top 5 Reasons to Eat Pizza in College

5. Hunger. An obvious but necessary reason. Let’s face it: if you don’t eat you will die. And while we may not know what happens to us after we die (that’s right, we’re getting existential early on in this one) what we do know is that there is pizza here … but maybe not there. So, ask yourself: Why not choose the pizza life?

4. Stress. College is a stressful time for students, teachers, and number 2 pencils. Prolonged exposure to exams, term papers, internships, and losing football teams can really accelerate that receding hairline. And though there are healthier ways to deal with stress–meditation, therapy, yoga, dancing-like-nobody-is-watching–there’s nothing quite like a slice.

3. Boredom. Ah, eating: the national pastime. Or maybe it’s just our nation’s preferred way to pass the time. Either way, when the wifi is down and the only thing happening on campus is a men’s water polo match (no offense, gentlemen), what else are you going to do? Write that paper you’ve been putting off? Pssh… yeah right. What you’re gonna do is order a large with everything on it, pop in that Elf DVD (sure, it’s only March but it’s also the only DVD my roommate packed), and get chewing.   

2. Competition. Long story short: Your roommate thinks he can actually eat more slices than you. And you’re supposed to just freakin’ take that? Not a chance.

1. . Victory. Mop the floor with that scumbag, celebrate with another slice, and discover life’s singular truth: Pizza is the only meal you’ll ever need.

BOXCAR WILLY ORIGIN

The history of the Boxcar Willy starts in 2004. Tim Brown, Steve “Six Guns” Knezovich, and I opened the doors at the first Lazy Moon Pizza, across from UCF in Orlando, Florida. We were 23 and just recently graduated from college. While we strived to offer diverse options in pizza toppings and beer, we had concerns over the most common issue college students’ faced, brokeassness.

While students at UCF, Six Guns and I had experienced the checking account highs of  loan disbursement day and the lows that poor budgeting brought at the end of every semester. We were determined to offer a meal that could fortify even the hungriest of students while avoiding dreaded NSF charges. Steve lamented how the cash flow woes of college forced one into choosing food over alcohol or vice versa depending on your ADS placement.

Always a man of action, Tim whipped up a huge slice made from fresh dough, sauce, and cheese served alongside a refreshing PBR. Viola, Lazy Moon’s first value meal was born. The name Boxcar Willy was chosen as an homage to a Simpsons character that was so hungry and broke, he entered a boxing match for a sandwich. Many of us have found cash issues extend from college and beyond, but you can rest easy loyal Lazy Mooners! As greedy Lizard people at the Federal Reserve Bank continue to drive the value of the dollar down through inflation, we will always sling this fresh meal daily for less than the price of your average fast food value meal.

-Matt (Lazy Mooner since -04)
