In this post: Low-carb essentials, underground mutants.
You know what’s really exciting? Apparently Howdygram readers are finally using the links on my blog to shop at Netrition.com — the best website on earth for low-carb products — and I’m starting to earn a 20% commission on every initial order! HINT: I only make money if you use the links that appear on the Howdygram. Like this one. You should also check out my page of low-carb product reviews because lots of them link directly to Netrition, too. (Thank you.)
And now ... a Howdygram movie review! On Saturday Sam and I watched The Mole People (1956), a science fiction dreck-fest from Universal starring Hugh Beaumont, John Agar and a herd of underfed underground mutants. The film begins with a hilariously awkward lecture by USC English professor Frank Baxter, who presents a variety of pointless theories about the center of the earth. Then we’re introduced to Beaumont (Ward Cleaver from TV’s “Leave It to Beaver”) and Agar, a pair of klutzy archaeologists on a dig in “Asia” — that’s actually all it says on the screen: “Asia” — when they discover a rare and ancient Sumerian stone tablet inexplicably engraved with Egyptian hieroglyphics (don’t ask). The aforementioned stone tablet is immediately destroyed when they leave it on a cheesy folding table during an earthquake, so they decide to recruit a climbing party to explore the summit of a nearby huge mountain (are they in Tibet?) to look for more artifacts.
Thank you for reading this.
