The mainstream media and Middle America have anointed Foo Fighters as The Rock Band to represent the whole genre. The only problem is, they are a boring outfit led by one of the biggest egomaniacs in the business. Sonic Highways was nothing more than a self-indulgent puff piece thought up by Gro...

I remember watching it when I was younger and I didn't "get" it. Watched it again the other night and it really clicked with me. The patented Malick landscape shots and flashbacks work so well with the scenery of the island and the situation the soldiers were in. Probably the best example is whe...

With the obscene amount of taxes generated annually in this country, what seemingly impossible projects or programs could be greenlit if overall spending was completely revamped?

It has been two months since they showed any semblance of life. In fact, the last time the LSU offense scored more than 19 points, it was October 24 and people were still trying to decide what costume to wear for Halloween. Do you expect more of the same, in the area of 14-20 points? Or do you t...View Topic - Replies (38)

I've been a vocal supporter of Coach Jones because I know how much he means to his squad and the attention to detail he brings every day. He has been subjected to harsh criticism by the fanbase (for one reason or another that has nothing to do with on-court performance), but has always shown profess...View Topic - Replies (20)

In the long run, this loss may be for the best. Hear me out, CJJ has proven he can go out and coach up his guys. They just need the hunger and drive to succeed. This is easily the most talented roundball squad we've seen in years, and I think CJJ will use this as a teaching moment. Come Tourny time,...View Topic - Replies (12)
