| Movie/TV Board|| Californication is pure crap, isn't it? - Rex on 12/22/14 at 7:52 pm|
I liked the pilot, there were some LOL's, but then....
Sex with some beautiful chick, Hank caught in some compromising position, true love gets upset with him and thus with the relationship... RINSE, REPEAT. Why bother to provide a story when it's easier to drag out some porn?
On top of that...
| Movie/TV Board|| Christmas Lights Fight on ABC - Rex on 12/22/14 at 7:07 pm|
Grand prize winner gets $50,000.
Is this the true spirit of Christmas?
eta: I say yes. These people are motivated by smiles.
| Movie/TV Board|| Why are there no old people on Jeopardy? - Rex on 12/18/14 at 6:36 pm|
Is there an age limit, as on American Idol?
I believe we old folks could kick some serious arse on that show.
| Food and Drink Board|| Ground beef was "ground meat" for us - Rex on 12/18/14 at 6:33 pm|
Guess mother learned the terminology in White Castle.
Not "ground MEAT", mind you, but "ground meat"... said so cursorily that the adjective had little meaning, and might as well have denoted the earth as opposed to meat from the sky.
| Music Board|| Why didn't you tell me about Gotye? - Rex on 12/18/14 at 6:17 pm|
I love this stuff. I was familiar with "Somebody that I Used to Know", of course, but the rest of this Dark Mirrors stuff is very soothing....
| Movie/TV Board|| Hulu Plus needs its head examined - Rex on 12/8/14 at 3:41 pm|
Its head honcho, that is.
Its programming is just fine. The Criterion collection of movies is great, in fact. The ability to binge stream current TV shows is great, too.
But, my god, that interface. On every device. Sucks on Roku. Sucks on Chromecast. Sucks on Playstation.
I watch Net...
| O-T Lounge|| Any chess masters here? Let me tell you... - Rex on 12/8/14 at 11:36 am|
I admire you.
It's the greatest of all games, isn't it? Almost perfect in balance, replayability, and accountability. Alas, I don't have the patience to be really good at it.
| O-T Lounge|| There's a Rouse commercial on 104.9 - Rex on 12/8/14 at 8:08 am|
Wherein the narrator pronounces "Gonzales" with an opening C.
I know I'm not crazy. :moon:...
| More Sports Board|| This was the most fricked up college football season ever - Rex on 12/7/14 at 5:54 pm|
First four team playoff and we get Alabama from the SEC, Oregon from the Pac 10, Ohio State from the Big 10, and Florida State from the ACC??? REALLY?
Did it have to be those four? I'm gagging on the banality of it all.
Why don't we have an "America's best landmark" committee decide the Stat...
| More Sports Board|| Another victim of this dumbass committee: sportsmanship - Rex on 12/7/14 at 1:00 pm|
With four minutes left against helpless Iowa State, Gary Patterson took a knee instead of running up the score to 62-3. With four minutes left against helpless Wisconsin, Urban Meyer instead chose to go for another meaningless touchdown. Or was it?
We can't blame Urban for wondering whether ev...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| The "one more turnover and I'm done with this crap" thread - Rex on 12/7/14 at 12:36 pm|
Why should I waste a beautiful Sunday?
| Tiger Rant|| So, was Les's offense indicted or vindicated by this weekend's action? - Rex on 12/7/14 at 10:25 am|
If Arizona proves the wisdom of his conservative approach, then Ohio State does exactly the opposite.
Which is it? Is it j'accuse or excused?
| More Sports Board|| Regardless of their decision, the integrity of the committee will be questioned - Rex on 12/7/14 at 9:53 am|
As it SHOULD be.
There is no way to leave prejudice out of this dumbass arrangement.
It's obvious that Ohio State should be the fourth team invited in. Did I say "obvious"? Of course it's not. There's nothing obvious about the Ohio Stte vs. TCU vs. Baylor decision. A solid argument can be ...
| O-T Lounge|| Why do people around here pronounce "Gonzales" with a C - Rex on 12/6/14 at 10:40 am|
instead of a hard G? Is that the official pronunciation?
| More Sports Board|| Sheesh, people... there's a very important NCAAF game starting in 25 minutes - Rex on 12/5/14 at 7:36 pm|
and you'd hardly know it here!
Go Arizona. Let's start Upset Weekend!
| Movie/TV Board|| Just watched "Edge of Tomorrow" - Rex on 12/5/14 at 6:52 pm|
An insult to Groundhog Day, is all I can say.
| Movie/TV Board|| No love here for "Black Mirror"? - Rex on 12/5/14 at 8:31 am|
Two episodes in and I'm thinking this is right up the Tigerdroppings Movie/TV board alley.
Question: would you watch if President Obama were forced to frick a pig on live TV?
| O-T Lounge|| Abolish the CDC. Any institution that can come up with this crap - Rex on 12/4/14 at 8:15 am|

I have always loved this one in particular:

| More Sports Board|| So, let's say Mizzou wins, Ga Tech wins, Ariz wins, Wisconsin wins - Rex on 12/2/14 at 5:13 pm|
Baylor beats Kansas State and TCU beats Iowa State.
That leaves Baylor, TCU, and Florida State as one loss teams... Mizzou, Ga Tech, Arizona, Wisconsin, and Alabama as two loss teams.
Now, I'm not going to ask who gets into the playoff under this scenario... I'm just going to use it as my ar...
