| SEC Rant|| Could A&M be considered a cult? - BigAppleTiger on 10/26/14 at 5:13 pm|
They seem to have all the signs. An abject skewed sense of reality. Denial of their subjugation. A closed off circle of sameness. Absolute venom when outsiders point out the insipid core of goose-stepping assimilation among the ranks.
| Movie/TV Board|| Who was the best Elizabeth I ? - BigAppleTiger on 10/3/14 at 2:49 pm|
Cate Blanchett- Elizabeth/Elizabeth the Golden Age
Helen Mirren- HBO films Elizabeth I
Anne-Marie Duff- Masterpiece's Elizabeth I
I have seen all three. I watched HBO and Mirren's effort last night. I enjoyed Blanchett and Mirren's performance much more than Duff's in Masterpiece. I l...

Looks like this guy will have to change his username.
| Tiger Rant|| What Do You Do for LSU Football? - BigAppleTiger on 9/7/14 at 6:45 pm|
I have a weird ritual I go through every gameday and have done so since the Kickoff of the 07 season(so of course I can't stop).
I must do 30 pushups every time LSU scores. Without fail. I know it doesn't really help the team, but it helps me not to sit on my arse and watch football all day. Cupcak...
| SEC Rant|| Ole Miss, Arkansas, or A&M- who will win the SEC first? - BigAppleTiger on 8/23/14 at 5:44 pm|
Of the three mediocre programs with potential to break through, who will finally ever get it done? All three teams haven't had any sustained national prominence since the 1960's and all have had a season or two lately where it looks like they could be respected for more than just one good season of...

Haven't been back to the city for almost a year so it was nice to go and chill and see friends and family. Had a nice width and breadth of dining experiences- Here are the best:
Spasso(Hudson St. in W. Village)
Great new Italian-It is everything that Esca would like to be( I am not a fan of...
| Movie/TV Board|| Avenger's Confidential- Black Widow and Punisher (Animated) - BigAppleTiger on 3/13/14 at 1:58 pm|
Saw an advance copy of this new animated marvel feature and I have to say I enjoyed it a lot more than other Marvel animated efforts. It still had all the hallmarks of Marvel Animation- great animation and character design, darker mood, and some really bad voice acting...but I did like the story an...
| Movie/TV Board|| Jumbo- The Plane that Changed the World (BBC Documentary) - BigAppleTiger on 3/4/14 at 9:07 pm|
Saw this last night. A pretty fascinating insight to the development program of the Boeing 747 and the technological development revolution at the time. The plane still is something to behold. The timeframe they pulled the project off in is an amazing and unthinkable feat even by today's standards. ...
| Movie/TV Board|| Jeremy Piven in Mr. Selfridge - BigAppleTiger on 1/28/14 at 12:47 am|
This was definitely born out of the Downton Abbey success and it's a little bit fluffier and candy coated believe or not. I found the first season to be somewhat enjoyable as Selfridge himself was quite a character and what he did was revolutionary in London at the time. The story itself is interest...
| Movie/TV Board|| Japanese Game Shows: Really? Yes..Really - BigAppleTiger on 1/12/14 at 4:29 pm|
The Japanese psyche is sometimes as puzzling as it is exotic, although enjoyable when you just dip a toe and don't dive in the deep end.
ETA: I had seen Human Tetris and maybe one other before- but the array of sexuality and humilation was very interesting to say the least.

Thanks for the great times as a kid Run Run. It is and was appreciated!
ETA: I truly believe there would be no Tarantino as we know it without this man.
| Movie/TV Board|| Pacific Rim/Battleship Double Feature - BigAppleTiger on 1/1/14 at 10:27 pm|
Did this recently. Pacific Rim was enjoyable but for some reason I found Battleship more satisfying and more in need of second viewing. Rihanna didn't even suck in it. Cheesy as hell but a fun, fun ride.
I think the lead in Pacific Rim was so wooden it really lacked a punch. And yes, I am willing...

Vote for your favorite nominated bartender in New Orleans. Will be interesting to see the responses. My vote goes to Shannon at Tracy's because she's hot, smart, and knowledgeable- and a damn good bartender. :)...

| Movie/TV Board|| Downton Abbey Season 4 Episode 1 **Spoilers** - BigAppleTiger on 9/22/13 at 8:52 pm|
Just finished watching episode 1. A little different at first(it almost seemed played out thematically) but by episodes end it had achieved a resonance for the characters and moved the story forward.
I found the most poignant moments to be when Isobel Crawley(Matthew's mother) confronted her...
| Tiger Rant|| Our DB's Will Get Some Interceptions Today - BigAppleTiger on 9/21/13 at 1:30 am|
After watching an admittedly little bit of Auburn's game last week, I think that Marshall is looking decent-but again against Mississipe St.(no offense). Marshall delivers balls that are very floaty and hang longer than they should- I'm thinking we will see a few interceptions- and our corners will...
| SEC Rant|| Ole Miss and A&M have usurped Arkansas as most delusional SEC Rant fanbase - BigAppleTiger on 8/28/13 at 1:12 pm|
Now that these two teams are at the top of the list-any other contenders?
Alabama,LSU, Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina all have reason to expect a very good year, Auburn and Arkansas fans are very quiet as they should be, and Vandy and MSU will never be as arrogant as Ole Miss and A&M unless...
| Tiger Rant|| I Want to See More Action From Our TE's - BigAppleTiger on 7/22/13 at 4:14 pm|
Was re-watching last year's Ole Miss game last night and as frustrating as the defense was at times, there were some very good signs. Travis Dickson was solid with 5 receptions and I would like to see our TE's take more of a role than in the last few years. Reminded me of Richard Dickson in the 2007...
| Fark Board|| Can Someone make a JFF gif from LSU vs A&M 2012? - BigAppleTiger on 6/14/13 at 11:28 pm|
Here is the link to the video. [link=(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QTwe9BONR4E)]LINK[/link] Rewatching the game I noticed 10 great seconds of exhaustion and desperation on JFF's face beginning with the head turn at 4min 31 seconds till the end of the shot at 4min 42 seconds. Would make a great gif...
