| Movie/TV Board|| The Guest (2014) - Big Thumbs Up - Freauxzen on 10/12/14 at 5:29 pm|
So CAD started a semi-thread about this, but I figured to make a standard one so people might take more notice.
If you want a well-made tense thriller with just the right amount of slow burning story, go see this movie. I was more than happy with it. A fine performance by Dan Stevens in the lead...
| Money Talk|| Salt Lake City: Anyone Live There? - Freauxzen on 10/8/14 at 9:08 am|
I'm considering a somewhat of a lateral move to SLC in the near future (like next week). How is the Cost of Living? The local amenities?
I've don a little research, which mostly seems to be around people who freak out over the Mormon population. People are people, I doubt that would bother me.

Could be a phone app, a browser plugin, or just something in the cloud. What do you find that's useful in your work, managing your time and/or tasks, etc.?
In terms of tasks and projects, I think I've tried them all, at least personally (Basecamp used to be great for team projects, not so much an...

| Fantasy Sports Board|| Need Help: Big Problems Afoot - Freauxzen on 9/19/14 at 11:39 am|
I chime in every once in a while, but I don't often ask for help. Often asking for more and more advice can sometimes make decisions even harder. Stick the the gut sort of thing.
But I got myself into a predicament of slightly epic proportions, and I'm stuck. So let's look at the team: STANDARD S...
| Movie/TV Board|| Names in Hollywood: Best, Worst, Most Interesting, Boring, Etc. - Freauxzen on 9/18/14 at 2:52 pm|
I can do this because my own name sounds awkward enough. (It works well, but it's completely confusing in terms of lineage. And it's unique but not cool, anyways, I digress.)
Who's got a coolest name in Hollywood?
Certainly Chazz Palminteri is up there. That's just an awesome name. Slightly be...

...Make me mad at myself and people. I missed it when it was on too. What a fun little show. It seems like one of the more palpable absurd shows for the masses. The characters are mostly a ton of fun, it's clever, unique.... just great for 26 episodes.
Wish there were more, or at least a tighter ...

...What would you want it to be about?
The first one was so timely. It hit it perfect in the late-90's, the battle of language and violence and film, all wrapped up in parenting. Good stuff.
What would be the topic now?
And yeah, I wish they would do another, now that Book of Mormon run...

So, with the DVD/Blu-Ray out today, seems likes it's a good time to talk about Captain America.
Recently, Chris Evans corrected the rumors about "quitting acting," that had floated around for a long time:

Also, Coup has been another great one. Kind o...

Not a very good title, and no this isn't a "Did she drop it on purpose thread, :lol:
But I saw Dollhouse when scrolling through Netflix the other day, it got me thinking of the show. So regardless of the overall quality of the show, the Epilogue episodes were going somewhere pretty cool. SPOILERS...
