They're doing a Vivien Leigh tribute today and tonight. I just finished watching A Streetcar Named Desire, and GWTW is coming on now.
Two GREAT movies!...
| Movie/TV Board|| Captain Phillips gave me motion sickness - Jimbeaux on 10/14/13 at 2:32 pm|
Literally. Luckily I made it to the restroom.
Needless to say, I'm not a fan of the jerky style camera action. What do you call that style? I don't like it.
The plot of the movie and the acting was quite good up until the time I had to leave to go puke.
Anybody else have this problem?...
| Movie/TV Board|| This is 40 - Jimbeaux on 10/7/13 at 2:17 am|
What a hot mess. Judd Apatow may have had something semi-interesting to say in his earlier works, but he's run out of whatever can be construed as good. If I wasn't so bored to death, that movie would have made me slit my wrists....

| Movie/TV Board|| Hitchcock movies on TCM this past weekend - Jimbeaux on 9/30/13 at 1:03 pm|
Had a movie fest with my kids this weekend. We watched 3 Hitchcock films - Rebecca, Strangers on a Train, and Notorious.
My 13 year old daughter really liked them. I had to explain the subtle sexual nuances of Ingrid Bergman's character in Notorious, but the suspense in each film still keeps mo...
| O-T Lounge|| Heroin addicts moved in across the street - Jimbeaux on 9/16/13 at 11:23 pm|
Mid 20's. 2 guys and 1 girlfriend. They lay around on the front porch all day and night, smoking cigs and floating on heroin. The girl OD'd the other day. Amber lamps showed up and treated her before heading off without her.
Question - Should I call the landlord and get them kicked out? I k...

I'm watching the QB and a WR and possibly more players wearing gold chains with medallions and other "bling".
Is this common?
I thought that was against the rules.
Am I just getting old?...
| Movie/TV Board|| The Way, Way Back - Jimbeaux on 8/7/13 at 4:17 pm|
I just got around to watching this movie last night. I was really good. The same film makers as The Descendants, which I also liked, but this one was better IMO.
The characters and the actors that portray them really make this film. Allison Janney, who played in the West Wing as C.J., really n...
| Movie/TV Board|| Favorite Bill Murray roles? - Jimbeaux on 6/10/13 at 7:45 pm|
One of the best comedic actors of all time. A true one of a kind!
Name your top 5 favorite Bill Murray roles. For me, it's really hard to narrow down.
Bob Wiley - What About Bob

Ernie McKracken - Kingpin
Bob Harris - Lost in Translation
Phil - Groundhog Day...
| Political Talk|| Black Radio Station in New Orleans - WBOK AM1230 - Jimbeaux on 6/6/13 at 10:21 am|
Does anyone here listen to this radio station? It's an extremely vitriolic black talk radio format with both local and national programs.
I am frequently shocked and saddened by the partisan anger, outright racist attitudes, and extreme obtuse ignorance that is spewed over this air wave.
| Food and Drink Board|| Suggestions for a Crawfish Cook-Off score card - Jimbeaux on 4/18/13 at 10:44 pm|
Our school/church parish is having a crawfish boil cooking competition this weekend. We have some guest chefs from local restaurants coming to be judges for the competition.
I want to make some score cards to make the judging easier and more consistent. What are some catagories I can list?
| O-T Lounge|| The twerk spanking video thread got whacked - Jimbeaux on 4/1/13 at 12:30 pm|
If it was because of my post, then I object. Serious discussion is not allowed on the OT, I presume....
| O-T Lounge|| Which Dodge dealership to use for car repair in N.O.? - Jimbeaux on 2/23/13 at 5:20 pm|
I'm having problems with my 2002 Dodge Ram and I've done the best I can do as a home mechanic.
The a/c condenser fan is not coming on. I replaced the relay and checked the fuse. I checked the fan motor by jumping it straight to the battery and it's working. I just replaced the engine temp con...
| Food and Drink Board|| Anybody been to Olivier's on Decatur St? - Jimbeaux on 2/22/13 at 6:56 pm|
A friend from B.R. is coming in to New Orleans and she wants to go to Olivier's on Decatur St. It looks like a tourist trap to me. Have any of you been there?
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Post your stories of your New Orleans Super Bowl experiences - Jimbeaux on 2/1/13 at 2:26 pm|
I went down to Decatur Street for lunch today, just to soak up some of the excitement. It was fun.
ESPN has 5-6 stages in a row, side-by-side in the Jax Brewery parking lot. They were broadcasting the Scott Van Pelt show and I was able to walk right up to the stage. I took a few pics.

Can you make a roux in a large round cast iron jambalaya kettle? Too rough? Too round?
Can I make a roux in an aluminum pot, like a small crawfish boiling pot?
Does anyone have any tips/recipes for alarge batch seafood gumbo? I'm thinking about adding gumbo to the menu at our ...

The so-called Arab Spring has Islamic militants gaining in strength across the Middle East and Northern Africa, and their strength is undiminished in Asia, across Arabia and Ancient Persia.

I just recently ate at Diva Dog and can now compare. IMO, Dat Dog is far superior and it's not close.
| Food and Drink Board|| Recommendations for a quality food processor? - Jimbeaux on 12/7/12 at 9:10 am|
It's a gift for my wife. We've had a lower priced Cuisinart for years. It's okay but I'd like to step it up a bit.
Thanks in advance!...

| O-T Lounge|| What's up with all these Organo Gold people downtown? - Jimbeaux on 9/28/12 at 6:35 pm|
Some big convention has got the CBD in NO all clogged with people and cars. Gridlock. Looks like they are setting up for a parade.
The best I can gather is that these are Amway type dupes with a pyramid scheme based on organic coffee.
Anybody heard of Organo Gold, or tasted the coffee?...
