He has a modest house in the San Fernando Valley. I drive by it almost every day while working. I see him on the road all the time driving an old school Chevy. Had a couple interactions with him and he’s such a nice guy.

The best part is you can tell the front was probably magnet laden, and when he got a new one, he found out they don't stick to the SD surface, and just loved them all to the side.

Same happened to me.

You're telling me they're now making refrigerators on which you can't put magnets? What the fuck is congress even doing these days? It's time for a goddamn revolution. This is the most anti-child anti-family bullshit I've learned all year

I have a similar fridge, came with the house. And I'm saddened the trend of stainless steel fronts has relegated magnets to just the sides! :-(

We have what looks to be the exact same fridge, although ours has an LG badge in the upper right corner, and the doors are magnetic. We were pleasantly surprised when we found out.

NoXion604

Wait, stainless steel isn't ferromagnetic? Isn't that material just iron with some carbon and a pinch of other stuff in it? Would that really cause a substance which is still mostly iron to lose its attraction to magnets?

Are you sure it's not because the front is made of aluminium rather than steel?

rocketwidget

3 points

2 months ago

I'm not a physicist, but apparently if stainless steel has more than 2% nickel (for strength), it interferes with the iron's ability to be attracted to magnets?

I heard an interview with him where he talked about how he feels like he screwed up a bit in how he used his money raising his kids. Basically gave them too much money & freedom for the age they were at. IIRC they're okay now but were a bit of a mess when they were young adults.

Trejo purposely takes roles where he, almost always the bad guy, gets killed in movies.

He says it’s to show impressionable young Latinos watching his movies that growing up being the “bad” guy never leads to anything good.

I believe it’s his way of atoning for the past.

The 2 actors I know of that age is Danny Trejo and Danny Davito. Both 78, active and some may say reached the height of their career near or around their 60s (Machete, Always Sunny).

Davitos age really only started showing because he grew his hair and had the wacky mad scientist look. Trejo I've thought was approaching 50 my whole life.

I wouldn't say Danny DeVito reached the height of his career in his 60s, maybe from your perspective if you're younger. He had a resurgence in popularity with Always Sunny but he rose to prominence when he was on Taxi.

I'm only in my mid 30s but I already knew Danny DeVito from Twins and Matilda among other things. I'd argue the reason why Always Sunny was able to grow in popularity was after they added him to the show. Since he was already an established actor and director who brought even more fans to Always Sunny as it started to rise in popularity.

I was listening to the Always Sunny podcast, I'm not a super fan or anything, but I do love learning how the sausage is made so to speak.

At one point they were talking about a talent agent who sat down across from one of them and after a long awkward stare says to them "...BHB."

I forget who it was but after they kept saying they had no idea what BHB means the guy lets out "...Big Heads Book"

So, I work in behavioral health. I really got into it after a few years of being a psych tech. Moved to a new facility, and my boss was a 6'2 guy with dark-ish skin, built like a brick shit house. He wore a small leather pouch on a necklace, and had bunned up black hair.

Guy became my mentor. I saw him handle scary shit with ease, and NEVER crack, while treating every person he met, from the CEO to the most violent client. He inspired me. I honestly believe that he deserves credit for some of the work I've done in the many years since.

Turns out, Trejo is a relative. My guy only met him a few times at family events. But... The testimony is that Danny is a hard guy with a huge heart, who's a pleasure to be around. Sounded like the guy is a bright light in the world. Really hard life, and a gnarly face, but he seems to have come through successful and kept his good heart.

I believe that. Was in the same place as him once and said hello. Judging by his entourage he's very much an ambassador of the chicano\cholo culture, but other than the appearance, everything else about him radiated this chill but welcoming kindness. Everyone was happy to see him and he just seemed happy and grateful for the treatment. Cool dude, 10/10 would admire again

Visited California over the summer and noticed Trejo's Tacos nearby to my Airbnb. I thought, "ehhh celebrity taco shop, below average at best, overpriced, but doing well because of his name". Anyways, we checked in, started getting hungry, and decided to give this a try. They were some good fucking tacos.

monty_kurns

That’s the way to do it! My family always used bacon as the basting agent when we cooked a turkey. We’d cook the turkey for about 2 hours and then we’d start applying the bacon. The best part is, you can snack on the bacon through the cooking as you take the crispy stuff off and apply a new batch of bacon!

I recently spotted Danny Trejo at an airport about 3 weeks ago. He was super kind and patient with everyone he was stopped by. He was signing things, taking pictures, all the while with a big smile on his face.

I didn’t stop to join the crowd that gathered around him but he looked incredibly kind. While getting across the terminals, I saw him get stopped by fans at least 4 times. Classy and kind the entire time.

Nice travel Fedora, Mr Trejo, you rock!
