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)

7 Songs You Didn’t Know Were About Pizza

Musicians can be a clever bunch. Throughout the history of recorded music, there are countless instances of songwriters using metaphor and double entendres to cloak their lyrics in ambiguity. What at first may appear to be a sweet sad song of love and innocence will reveal itself to actually be about drugs, sex, war, oppression, or any number of other topics the songwriter felt were too personal (or too controversial) to say outright.  Many of these songs go on to become huge hits, attracting scores of fans and at times creating awkward sing-alongs.

Here are seven songs from the early 1980s that you probably didn’t know were about a deep and true love of pizza. (more…)

Employee Spotlight // Ryan Kane

ryan kane 3

What’s your full name?
Ryan Salvatore Kane.

Any nicknames?
“Kane” and/or “Mink.”

If you could give yourself a nickname what would it be?
Honestly, I like Mink. I guess it’s technically a nickname I gave myself, because it’s my “alter ego” in the video game community. I’ve always had ferrets as a kid, so that’s where I stole the name from.

How long have you worked at Lazy Moon? What’s your role?
I’ve worked at Lazy Moon for (as of this week) 5 years. I am currently employed as a Manager!

What do you do with your time off?
With my time away from work I like to play video games. I own my own E-Sports company here in Orlando and host multiple events throughout the year based around the Super Smash Brothers series. I enjoy playing Overwatch on the PC as well.

Tell us something about yourself that not a lot of people know.
I’m ranked as arguably the number one “Charizard” player in the United States for the game Super Smash Bros 4. That’s a weird topic for me to bring up since not everyone’s a gamer, haha. I have two ferrets I care for named Cali and Spoodle (who I named after a Lazy Moon utensil, haha)…  I guess that’s a little unconventional.

What’s your idea of the perfect slice of Lazy Moon pizza? What’s your desert island slice?
My personal favorite slice is Pesto base with Mojo Pork, Feta and a side of Buffalo sauce. That’s the good stuff.
