Anyone else planning on attending?

Pretty awesome stuff.
There are 2 chicks in the nest and if you look, you can see a catfish head.
| Outdoor Board|| Newspaper publishes addresses of permitted gun owners - Helo on 12/25/12 at 6:06 am|
This is why gun registration and gun permitting are so dangerous.
At least here in FL, they changed the law a few years ago so if you are a CCW holder, you can easily opt out of having that information publicly available.
| Outdoor Board|| Gunsafe Refurbish Project Log (The Great Glue Up - 3/10) - Helo on 12/17/12 at 6:42 am|
I meant to start this last month but I forgot so I missed many in between pictures but I still have a bit to go. I will try to go back and fill in some of the holes and then post more updates as progress moves on.
I need a bigger safe so after Christmas I was planning...
| Outdoor Board|| DIY Gunsmith Toolkit - Helo on 10/20/12 at 7:35 am|
I am trying to put together a small home toolkit for any DIY gunsmithing needs. There is scant little information out there to put together one.
Has anyone done this before?
I want to have my tools and small gun parts that I might need in place for easy availability.

| Outdoor Board|| HK45c Group Purchase - Helo on 9/15/12 at 8:49 am|
Not sure how many HK fans there are but one of the member of HKPro forums organized a group buy for a customized HK45c in FDE (Flat Dark Earth)
I have been mulling this over for months and ended up buying one but the cutoff is Oct 1st.
It is a kick arse deal for a limited run HK at $885 with 3 ma...
| Political Talk|| "Will U.S. Sovereignty Be LOST At Sea?" - Helo on 5/25/12 at 6:27 am|
I saw one poster mention this treaty but no discussions on it. Dick Morris's new book, "Screwed" talks about this new push to get the US to ratify the Law of the Sea Treaty (drafted in 1982) and how it is a mechanism to redistribute oil/gas royalties to other countries. Once ratified, there is no w...
| Movie/TV Board|| The Thing - 2011 - Helo on 7/18/11 at 6:14 am|
Just saw this on IMDB.
Had no idea they were doing this movie and at first I was a bit irritated because the 1982 version is one of my favorite movies of all time.
However, it appears this will be a prequel with events taking place in the Norwegian camp.
I really hope they don't screw this up.
| Movie/TV Board|| FYI: Steel Dawn is NOT a sequel of Red Dawn - Helo on 6/19/11 at 4:43 pm|
They both have Patrick Swayze, both from the 80s but they are quite a bit different beyond that.
| Movie/TV Board|| Anvil: Story of Anvil - Helo on 6/12/11 at 7:48 am|
I have heard about this documentary for a while and just watched it this morning on Netflix.
Do yourself a favor and watch it if you haven't already.
| Movie/TV Board|| Rome - Helo on 1/2/11 at 12:08 pm|
Started watching this last night.
After 2 episodes, I am hooked.
I have heard many good things about this series over the years and not sure why it took me this long to watch it, but it is as good as advertised.
Depressing though that it is only 2 short seasons.
Even more depressing is that Ne...

Anyone seen this?
| Movie/TV Board|| Clash of the Titans *Some Spoilers* - Helo on 12/19/10 at 5:28 am|
I was warned it sucked and yet I watched it anyway.:spank:
I am usually pretty accepting of directors changing up story lines of movie remakes or of movies based on events but this was a pretty drastic change. Even the original reason of him wanting to save Andromeda wasn't there.
| Movie/TV Board|| King of Kong - Helo on 12/12/10 at 10:00 am|
I watched this last night and was amazed how big the classic arcade scene still is. Great documentary that really highlights how douchy Billy Mitchell (the former world record holder in Donkey Kong).
On Netflix if you haven't seen it....

| Movie/TV Board|| 5 Stars or 10 star scale? - Helo on 8/28/10 at 7:46 am|
When rating movies, do you prefer a 5 star scale like Netflix or 10 stars like IMDB. Personally I think a 5 star scale is far to limiting.
A perfect example was Public Enemies which I watched last week. Not a great movie so it might be a 2-3 star on Netflix but a 4-6 star on IMDB, however I g...
| Movie/TV Board|| Monsters - Helo on 8/24/10 at 6:13 am|
I am not going to have high hopes since so many similar movies have been terrible but maybe this one changes the trend.

I am a sucker for obscure Indi and foreign Films usually with some action in them.
A few I have seen recently that are pretty good.

| Food and Drink Board|| Best Food Value - Helo on 7/19/09 at 7:52 am|
Today I am cooking a pack of BBQ chicken drums on my BGE. At $1.69/lb (cheaper on sale) I can get a 12 pack for under $7 and feed 2 people for more than 1 meal.
Tomorrow I am cooking red beans and as long as you go light on the Tasso and sausage, you can eat for a couple days for under $15.
| Food and Drink Board|| Best Rice Cooker - Helo on 6/11/09 at 5:28 pm|
My current rice cooker is 13 or so years old, made by Panasonic but it is on it's last leg. I've needed to replace it for at least the past year but now it's time.
I looked at some higher priced Japanese models that are highly rated.

I thought it was decent but from what I've read about it, it was edited to death.
I think an updated version will be great....

Grew up in the 80s playing these and they are making a big comeback. Anyone play one?
