| Movie/TV Board|| Superhero Cafe is pretty funny stuff - Methuselah on 1/19/15 at 6:37 am|
Did a search and didn't find a thread on here more recent than about a year old.
Pretty good stuff.
| SEC Rant|| SEC votes against 4 year schollys (but it passes anyway), for "incidental" costs - Methuselah on 1/17/15 at 5:33 pm|
Hmm. Did processing people just get more difficult?...
| Movie/TV Board|| Who would you say is the most used villain in film, television, books & comics - Methuselah on 1/16/15 at 7:18 am|
Outside of the devil/Satan characters and maybe Dracula, I'd say Morgan Le Fey might be pretty high up there. Mostly in Arthurian stuff but sometimes (like last week's The Librarian which prompted this thought) it is as a stand alone villain, sometimes one who has survived to modern times....
| More Sports Board|| How important is the "college" part of college football to you? - Methuselah on 1/16/15 at 6:49 am|
All the recruiting, early departing, rumors of money and assorted other "scandals", etc. got me wondering:
Is the actual college that your favorite team plays for the deciding factor for you?
Would you cheer just as passionately if it was the exact same team but was more of a "club" structur...
| O-T Lounge|| Looking for some info on LSU Graduate school in Library Science - Methuselah on 1/14/15 at 8:42 pm|
Anybody got any experience with this? My daughter is looking to apply.
How competitive is it to get in? I understand it's a pretty small program as far as numbers are concerned. Is a very good GPA and good references enough or do you have to ace the GRE also?
Any other info about the prog...
| Coaching Changes|| So, if the 11th coach rule is voted in, what would you do with it? - Methuselah on 1/14/15 at 7:27 pm|
What coaching position would you add? And what are some of the names you would pursue?
On the one hand, it seems to me like offense could use a shot of the same energy and mojo that defense seems to have gotten today. So maybe a dedicated QB coach?
On the other hand, what is the breakdown n...
| Tiger Rant|| Is this the Riverboat Gambler Les that made this hire? - Methuselah on 1/14/15 at 7:06 am|
I've admitted before I don't know squat about defensive coordinators so I can't tell if this is a good hire, a terrible hire, a great hire or what.
But judging by the little I've read and heard seems like Steele has had some poor stats here and there in his resume'.
So, is this Les taking a sh...
| More Sports Board|| What college coach looks least like "The University of . . . " head coach? - Methuselah on 1/12/15 at 7:08 pm|
Looking a Urban Meyer in the pre-game warm ups and stuff I was struck that he didn't really look like "the coach of The Ohio State University".
Of course I don't think that is really that uncommon now. Back in the day, Bryant was "Alabama", Hayes was "Ohio State", Osborne was "Nebraska", Darry...
| Movie/TV Board|| Some thoughts on re-watching the original Star Wars trilogy (Episodes IV-VI) - Methuselah on 1/12/15 at 12:30 pm|
I've re-watched IV (A New Hope) and V (Empire Strikes Back) with my son and some of his friends while they're home from college. A couple of things caught my attention:
- Empire Strikes back is not only better than A New Hope. It is significantly better. I love A New Hope and enjoyed re-watchi...
| Coaching Changes|| Are potential coaches are a bit put off by Alleva's stance on Chief's buyout - Methuselah on 1/8/15 at 12:20 pm|
If I remember right, Alleva did some saber rattling about collecting the buyout on Chavis' contract and there was some question about the wording.
I wonder if that might not be a negative factor considered by coaches looking at the DC position?...
| Coaching Changes|| Give me a primer on O's recruiting prowess, including lately. - Methuselah on 1/8/15 at 6:32 am|
I know he's considered a top flight recruiter but don't really know any of the details.
What were some of his big "gets". Was it he who got McKnight to USCw? And who were some of his big fish he landed at Ole Miss?
Also, what was the last class/school he recruited for and how was there cl...
| Movie/TV Board|| Is "Jesus Christ Superstar" the GOAT musical? - Methuselah on 1/7/15 at 7:12 pm|
I'd say yes. But it's hard for me to judge because I generally don't care for musicals. I loved this one (seems like they went out and got the best voices they could find when casting it - they could all really sing).
Outside of that the only musicals I can remember even liking were Grease an...
| Coaching Changes|| Moscona seemed to go off the reservation on the coaching search today - Methuselah on 1/7/15 at 6:40 pm|
(no pun intended with the search being to replace "The Chief")
I usually find Moscona pretty reasonable with his takes on things LSU. So it was a bit troubling that he was kinda down-talking Shoop and promoting a Haley/Ogeron combination.
Referred to Shoop as being from "small private schools...
| Coaching Changes|| Ok IF Shoop ends up being DC, how would it affect recruiting QB's and LB's? - Methuselah on 1/7/15 at 11:30 am|
(wasn't sure whether to put this on the CC board or the Recruiting Board so feel free to move it if I chose wrong)
For some reason it seems like Pennsylvania has been known (at least in the past) for producing Quarterbacks and Linebackers. Has Shoop been at Penn St. long enough to develop any co...
| Movie/TV Board|| It's been too long since we've had a Big Trouble in Little China thread - Methuselah on 1/4/15 at 6:53 pm|
"Ya know what ol' Jack Burton always says at a time like this?"
- Jack Burton...
| Movie/TV Board|| Let's talk Twilight Zone, Night Gallery, Kolchack: The Night Stalker & X-Files - Methuselah on 1/2/15 at 8:39 pm|
These four kind of represent (in my mind at least) kind of a genre of serious sci-fi/fantasy/horror weekly television with various degrees of commercial, critical and artistic success.
I think that Twilight Zone is looked upon (and rightly so) as the pinacle in the critical and artistic fields an...
| Movie/TV Board|| Just watched Dazed and Confused for the first time - Methuselah on 12/27/14 at 8:48 pm|
Very good movie.
I've heard of it before, of course. But it wasn't what I was expecting.
I always had the notion that it was just your basic stoner/drinking teen movie. But I find that it had a more serious undertone than the more recent examples of the genre.
I wouldn't say the subject m...
| Soccer Board|| Anybody going to to the high school tournament at Burbank today? - Methuselah on 12/26/14 at 2:08 pm|
Thought about going but a little holiday rest won out. Should be some pretty good games though....
| Movie/TV Board|| What three actors/actresses would make the strongest Jeopardy panel - Methuselah on 12/23/14 at 8:32 am|
Although the James Wood thread was (properly I think) moved to the poli board, some of the info in there about his SAT scores and IQ got me thinking.
What actors or entertainment celebrities do you think would do the best on Jeopardy?
Other than Woods the one that comes to mind without resor...
| Movie/TV Board|| Recommend to me something from RedBox or On Demand to watch with 2 young adults - Methuselah on 12/19/14 at 11:15 am|
Just gonna be me and the kids (18&21) tonight so I figured I'd pick up Chinese and we'd watch a flick together.
I'm thinking maybe something sci-fi or comedy or maybe light adventure. I'd rule out (for the tastes of different ones of us) romances, war movies and probably cowboys and sports movie...
