| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Sports on 990 AM - VOR on 1/30/15 at 12:24 pm|
I rarely listen to this station but today there was a guy whose voice was immediately recognizable. Said he also has a column on NOLASports. com.
Any idea who he is?...
| Movie/TV Board|| "Force Majeure" in New Orleans - VOR on 1/30/15 at 7:57 am|
For those N.O. cinephiles willing to sit through a movie at Zeitgeist, I heartily recommend "Force Majeure". It's offbeat, and its darkly comic (very darkly).
A Swedish couple on skiing holiday with their two kids encounter a "lanslide" that turns out to be harmless. It's the reaction of the ...

| Pelicans Talk|| Damn, Carlisle Was Bummed - VOR on 1/25/15 at 8:01 pm|
He was really depressed in his press conference. Thought the inbound foul call was bad (really, dude?). And said they fricked up on their inbound to Monta. He should have given more props to AD on that play, imo. Whatever. ...
| Food and Drink Board|| A Sad Report on Purloo - VOR on 1/25/15 at 9:16 am|
Four of us went to dinner last night at Purloo (for those of you don't know, it's and adjunct to the Southern Food and Beverage Museum on OCH).
We really wanted to like it. But we were all disappointed.
The space is nicely done, with very high ceilings and a bit of an industrial look. The ...
| Movie/TV Board|| The Patrick Kenzie/Angie Gennaro Novels by Dennis Lehane - VOR on 1/22/15 at 8:07 am|
Another thread got me thinking. Who's read these and what are your favorites?
A Drink Before the War
Darkness, Take My Hand
Gone Baby Gone
Prayers for the Rain
Darkness Take My Hand and Gone Baby Gone are right up there for me, although all of them (except the antic...
| Pelicans Talk|| A Guide to Firing Your Coach - VOR on 1/20/15 at 7:20 am|
From The Bird Writes.
[i]If there is a time to make a move for the Pelicans, it is right now. 10 of the next 12 games are at home. The Pelicans will be on the road for just four days in the next month; January 22nd and 23rd (@ Minnesota on the 23rd), and February 5th and 6th (@ OKC on the 6th). T...
| Music Board|| Acoustics at The Civic - VOR on 1/19/15 at 7:18 am|
May be going to see Sleater Kinney. I had heard acoustics were "iffy" and that balcony was actually better. Then I heard things had improved.
Thoughts on acoustics? Thoughts on seating or standing?
| Pelicans Talk|| Last Night Did Two Things To Me - VOR on 1/17/15 at 7:32 am|
1) It took a little fun out of watching Emma Stone playing a hot slut onstage. I was checking PT on the sly. Multi-tasking. My fault. I should have just focused on what was important. Like Emma in a slinky slip talking about drinking and fricking.
2) And, for me, it put the final nail in the cof...
| Food and Drink Board|| Taking Control of New York - VOR on 1/16/15 at 9:18 am|
We're in NYC for a long weekend. Arrived last night. By the way, Hotel Benjamin in midtown has some unbelievable deals right now.
Had an early dinner last night at Batard in TriBeca. I'd never been before. It was great and I'll provide more of a review later. I will say the duck breast with ...
| Pelicans Talk|| Possibly Two Tickets for The Grizz Game Tonight - VOR on 1/9/15 at 9:19 am|
I'm sitting here with a sore throat wondering if it's getting better or worse. Anyway, I'm going to decide by noon. If I decide not to go I have two available in the lower bowl. I'll check in a little later. Leave e-mail.
PLEASE. . . don't ask for them if you're not absolutely sure you'll use...
| Food and Drink Board|| Full N.O. City Council to Vote on Smoking Ban in All Restaurants, etc. - VOR on 1/8/15 at 9:04 am|
The measure was approved by committee and now goes to the full Council. Existing cigar bars and tobacco stores will be "grandfathered" in and continue to operate.
I know the measure is unpopular with some posters, but I suspect the consequences will not be nearly as dire as predicted by opponents...
| Tiger Rant|| LSU Basketball - VOR on 1/3/15 at 1:46 pm|
It sort of pisses me off that I had to go to the third page to see anyone talk about LSU basketball and recruiting. Jones is putting together pretty decent roster.
And, yes, this year holds promise....

"I think our guys got a lot of energy from this city tonight, and that's what I've been trying to explain to our fan base since I've been here," said Pelicans coach Monty Williams, now in his fifth season. "To get that many people in our arena cheering for our guys down the stretch, knocking down bu...
| Pelicans Talk|| To Reiterate, Phoenix Should be a "Must Win" - VOR on 12/30/14 at 7:52 am|
Just stating the obvious (and, it's been discussed in other threads).
Just looking at the standings (I know, it's still early), for now Phoenix is one team we definitely have to knock out of the eighth seed.
Who else is vulnerable? Unless Durant keeps getting injured, you have to believe OK...
