Sports on 990 AM - VOR
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?...

"Force Majeure" in New Orleans - VOR
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 ...

Damn, Carlisle Was Bummed - VOR
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. ...

A Sad Report on Purloo - VOR
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 ...

The Patrick Kenzie/Angie Gennaro Novels by Dennis Lehane - VOR
Another thread got me thinking. Who's read these and what are your favorites? A Drink Before the War Darkness, Take My Hand Sacred Gone Baby Gone Prayers for the Rain Moonlight Mile Darkness Take My Hand and Gone Baby Gone are right up there for me, although all of them (except the antic...

A Guide to Firing Your Coach - VOR

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...

Acoustics at The Civic - VOR
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? TIA...

Last Night Did Two Things To Me - VOR
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...

Taking Control of New York - VOR
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 ...

Possibly Two Tickets for The Grizz Game Tonight - VOR

Full N.O. City Council to Vote on Smoking Ban in All Restaurants, etc. - VOR
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...

LSU Basketball - VOR
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....

Now's The Time to Fill SKC - VOR
"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...

To Reiterate, Phoenix Should be a "Must Win" - VOR
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...
