Get it now while you can. Just picked mine up. Can't wait to try it.
Bold Bourbon, tobacco and espresso aromas and a hint of American oak greet the nose. Rich, chewy roasted malts, charred oak and bourbon-like vanilla attack the ...
| Food and Drink Board|| How to peel crawfish - What is your method? Mine may save you time. - SUB on 5/10/13 at 11:31 am|
Most people do this: Pull the tail off, suck the head (optional), peel off the first scale or two, pinch, pull out meat with fingers and eat.
To me, this is inefficient. I'm surprised more people don't do this, but here is my method: Place your thumb on bottom of tail and index finger on top. Pu...
| Food and Drink Board|| Crawfish Boil Vegetables / Sides - Oddities - SUB on 5/9/13 at 4:54 pm|
What are your favorite vegetables / sides to add to the boil besides, corn, onions, potatoes, sausage, garlic, and mushrooms?
My favorites are broccoli, brussel sprouts, baby bok choy, and jalapenos.
I've heard of people throwing in other meats, like steaks, chicken, ribs, etc, but I've never ...
| O-T Lounge|| How to cope with the loss of a loved one - 6 years later - SUB on 5/9/13 at 12:23 am|
I lost my brother almost 6 years ago (he was in his mid 20's). Those first two years after he passed were hell. Things have been better and a little easier to deal with since, but I still think about him often. The hardest thing for me is looking at pictures / videos from back when he was alive. I...

I did this in 2012 and got a lot of support. I think it's good to have a stickied thread that everyone can go to and see what albums have been and will be released throughout the year.
If you see something you want added to the list, just post your request here and I'll update the first post.

| Music Board|| Boats - A band from Winnipeg - SUB on 1/24/13 at 3:29 pm|
I found this band when listening to a SXSW 2013 playlist on spotify. The singer sounds like a mixture of Perry Farrell and Shannon Hoon. I think they have a good energetic sound and should be a good live band to see.
The first album, "Cannonballs, Cannonballs",is very good:

All this Te'o crap got me thinking. I'm pretty confident that the guy was duped and figured it out at some point, but was too embarrassed to fess up to it, so he lied to save his image. The lies spiraled out of control and here we are today. But...I still feel that there is a small chance that Te...

How come I don't see this food more often. I know it's a New Orleans dish, but I just rarely see it at brunch places. My mom never made it growing up, so it is fairly new to me, but damn it is so good. I love this stuff. I actually made some yesterday and it turned out great.
| O-T Lounge|| When do you start "the move" in the bathroom at work or elsewhere? - SUB on 12/6/12 at 1:22 pm|
I've noticed that as I've gotten older, it starts earlier and earlier. Now it's almost as soon as I open the door to the bathroom, I unzip my pants. On my way to the stall, my buckle is undone, so by the time I enter the stall, I turn around and sit and the pants fall down during the turn. I feel...

Anyone else find this group WAY overrated amongst the hipster indie fans? I've listened to their stuff and seen them live. It's not bad at all. But when I saw them live...they just seemed to fit the hipster scene and were so cliche. The whole set was just full of lame banter and stupid crowd gim...

Has anybody watched this? It's like the British version of Freaks and Geeks, if it were on HBO. I usually don't like British humor, but this show is really good.
The first two seasons are on Netflix now. Watch the first two episodes and you'll be hooked....

| O-T Lounge|| Bomb Threats on College Campuses - How Many Have Actually Been True? - SUB on 9/14/12 at 11:28 am|
I'd like to see if a study has been done to see how many bomb threats on college campuses, or in general, were true and a bomb went off. The obvious reason for threats is probably because a kid forgot to study for an exam.
It really does not make any sense for a terrorist to phone in a bomb threa...
