| Movie/TV Board|| Watched Django Unchained again today - SW2SCLA on 12/4/13 at 6:17 pm|
It's not Tarantino's best movie nor my favorite by him, but I think it's his funnest. Amazing cast, good plot, and a ton of LOL moments. Soundtrack is worth a download as well. ...
| Food and Drink Board|| Gift card to Cochon? - SW2SCLA on 12/1/13 at 7:59 am|
How do I buy one of these online? I've checked the website and the Link Restaurant Group's website and saw nothing. I want to give one as a Christmas gift and won't be able to make it to New Orleans before then. It's probably right in front of me and I missed it but I'd appreciate some guidance. ...

Trying to finish up my first build and figured I can find one on sale in the next month. First time I'm doing a build so any specs I should look for are appreciated. I already have a rock river arms lower with a palmetto state LPK with magpul FDE furniture. I'd like to keep it under $700, carbine or...

My new laptop arrived yesterday and I want to donate my old one to charity. First I need to make sure all of my data is off of it. This isn't a process I'm familiar with so I would appreciate some guidance on the subject. I did some googling but got mixed results. TIA. ...

| Food and Drink Board|| Simple gas grill recs - SW2SCLA on 10/2/13 at 6:06 pm|
Not looking for something big or overly fancy, but I do want quality. I'll still be using charcoal when I have the time or need to cook for a large group. I just want a simple gas grill that I can use quickly after work or when I'm pressed for time. I looked at some Webers online but they were more...
| Food and Drink Board|| Let's talk about protein bars - SW2SCLA on 9/27/13 at 8:11 am|
Looking for something I can have with an apple or some other fruit for a quick breakfast in the morning. I've been buying the Pure Protein brand which have around 180-200 calories and 20g of protein each.
Are there better options out there? TIA.
| Food and Drink Board|| I need help buying red wine as a gift - SW2SCLA on 9/23/13 at 3:23 pm|
I'm not a wine drinker, just not my thing. But a friend's dad is giving me his old gun safe and won't let me pay him for it. I'd like to buy him a bottle or two of red wine as a sign of my appreciation. My friend told me that's what his dad likes, but doesn't know what kind. I figure $30 should get ...

| O-T Lounge|| New ultrabook/tablet recommendations - SW2SCLA on 9/18/13 at 6:59 am|
Looking to replace a 7 year old Dell Inspiron. It's been a trooper but it's time to hang it up. I don't need my new one to do much besides basic document editing and creating, browsing the net, and streaming media. I don't do much gaming. If it's a tablet I'd need a keyboard I could attach for class...

So much potential.
| Movie/TV Board|| Question from season 3 of Breaking Bad - SW2SCLA on 9/10/13 at 3:38 pm|
Did they ever reveal who called Hank before the cousins attacked him? I don't remember them ever saying who did it and I was wondering if I missed it. I wasn't a fan when the show originally aired so I wasn't around for the threads back then. ...

| Movie/TV Board|| OFFICIAL Comedy Central Roast of James Franco Thread - SW2SCLA on 9/2/13 at 4:10 pm|
Comedy Central @ 9pm central time tonight
I just saw the preview for the first time and it looks promising. They seem to have skipped a lot of the shittier regulars and brought in some pretty funny people. Seth Rogen is MC, Jeff Ross dressed as Riff Raff, Aziz Ansari, Bill Hader, Jonah Hill, Nic...
| O-T Lounge|| I just made my first trip to a Buc-ee's - SW2SCLA on 9/1/13 at 3:29 pm|
On my way back from Dallas. That place must print money like a casino. 32 gas pumps with lines at almost all of them and a retail setup that is downright impressive. I had heard they had everything but I wasn't expecting what I saw. I'm gonna open one up on i-10 between lake Charles and Baton Rouge,...
| Food and Drink Board|| So I was given a foodsaver - SW2SCLA on 8/25/13 at 6:13 pm|
Just used it for first time to freeze half of a pork loin I cooked yesterday. This thing is awesome! I generally haven't been freezing cooked meat unless it was in a soup, gumbo, etc. I would eat on it for days but get tired of it and end up wasting some. Living alone I expect this to be a game chan...

| Food and Drink Board|| So I recently watched "Fat, Sick, & Nearly Dead" (Juice-fast diets) - SW2SCLA on 8/22/13 at 9:01 am|
Is it as legit as the film showed it to be? It just doesn't seem that only drinking 3 glasses of juice a day for an extended period of time can be that healthy in the long run. Plus, I would think the calories from all that fruit would add up fairly quickly. Still, the film shows some very appealing...
| Movie/TV Board|| Just finished season 1 of Breaking Bad - SW2SCLA on 8/19/13 at 7:25 pm|

I have about 1-1.5 pounds of fresh large deheaded shrimp and a pound of frozen crawfish tails. Im thinking about making a stew with a good dark roux, but I'd kind of like to do something different/new.
Any suggestions? ...

| Movie/TV Board|| Just saw Men In Black 3 for the first time (spoilers) - SW2SCLA on 5/22/13 at 1:44 pm|
I really enjoyed it and was wondering what the rest of the board thought of it. It was just what I expected - a fun sequel that fit in with the other 2. I really liked how they incorporated the Apollo mission and other things from the 60s. Smith, Jones, Brolin all delivered. ...

I'd recommend their jerk seasoning ...
