| Movie/TV Board|| Anybody planning on watching the new Cosmos series? - Methuselah on 3/8/14 at 7:56 am|
I think it starts tomorrow (Sunday). They could have picked a better start date with Sunday having the finale of [i]True Detective[/i] as well as [i]Walking Dead[/i] (whether or not you like it, it gets a lot of viewers).
I think I'll give it a try. I loved the old series. Neil deGrasse Tyson ...
| Movie/TV Board|| Watched Shaun of the Dead for the first time - Methuselah on 3/7/14 at 8:05 pm|
I'd heard good things about it but just never watched it before last night. My take on it:
- I thought it was pretty good. Had a kind of Douglas Adams/Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy vibe about it.
- I thought the humor was better at the beginning. Then it got into a weird half funny/half t...
| Movie/TV Board|| Do you have a go to site for recaps of your favorite shows? - Methuselah on 2/26/14 at 11:20 am|
Does anyone have a favorite site they go to for recaps of the tv shows they like?
A long time ago I used to love the old Mighty-Big TV site which then changed its name to Television Without Pity. But once the founders of that site sold it and moved on, the site declined so much it lost my intere...
| Movie/TV Board|| Man, I'd kind of forgotten just how cheesy Roadhouse can be - Methuselah on 2/24/14 at 9:18 pm|
I think it's mostly because the "bad guy" was just so over the top. Started out being kind of machivillian. But ended up just stupid crazy....
| O-T Lounge|| Is the OT kind of like the first year of college? - Methuselah on 2/10/14 at 4:49 pm|
Sort of the basic classes everyone has to take, and then move on?
In other words, do most people gravitate from the OT after awhile to one of the other boards like Saints or Pelican Talk, More Sports, Soccer, Movie/TV etc. (I'm leaving Tiger Rant off the list because I kind of assume most peopl...
| Movie/TV Board|| Will any of the stars or recent hit shows be typecast? - Methuselah on 1/21/14 at 7:24 am|
Is typecasting a thing of the past? Are today's audiences too sophisticated or are there too many different outlets for actors these days?
I'm thinking if anyone maybe Andrew Lincoln as Rick Grimes or maybe Jon Hamm as Don Draper (though he kind of has the Hollywood look that will get him parts ...
| Movie/TV Board|| Captain America The Winter Soldier figures - Methuselah on 1/15/14 at 12:25 pm|
Not sure if any images are out there of the WS but these make it pretty clear what he will look like....
| O-T Lounge|| Anybody hear anything about a shooting at St. James High tonight? - Methuselah on 1/14/14 at 9:03 pm|
Got a friend on FB who posted "pray for those involved in the shooting" and in the comments said there was a shooting at or near a basketball game there.
Haven't seen anything on the media sites yet....

Here's two of mine:
| Tiger Rant|| What about a rule where colleges were allowed to pay a players likely slotted $$ - Methuselah on 1/13/14 at 3:29 pm|
Iseems to me that with the recent NFL rookie salary slots, it has kind of opened up kids leaving as they might not get much more by staying. And face it, if the choice is between playing for free (ok, playing for a scholarship) and paying for cash, the cash must look mighty inviting.
| Food and Drink Board|| What's you favorite food wrapped in bacon? - Methuselah on 1/9/14 at 4:15 pm|
Someone I know posted a pic on FB of chicken wrapped in bacon. Which got me to wondering: What's the best tasting bacon-wrapped food?...
| Movie/TV Board|| Mel Gibson was way to old to play the younger William Wallace - Methuselah on 1/7/14 at 7:58 pm|
Excellent movie otherwise. I don't mind the factual liberties they take. (Well, maybe the fact that the kinda missed on the battle formations he utilized just a little). But it always kind of throws me off a bit when Wallace appears as the young adult Wallace....
| LSU Recruiting Board|| If you were to hire two new coaches with recruiting in mind, who would they be? - Methuselah on 1/3/14 at 10:03 am|
They would have to coach a position too of course (I think that's how it works). So they would need some ability there. But first and foremost you'd be looking for recruiting ability.
Who ya' got? And what position on the staff?...
| O-T Lounge|| Is there really a market for giant chicken lawn ornaments? - Methuselah on 12/30/13 at 4:55 pm|
Passing through the Prarieville/ BR area on the Airline Highway this weekend we passed this lawn ornament place. And in addition to the usual stuff there was a large number of these huge lawn ornaments made to look like giant chickens.
What the heck is with that? Do people really put those ...
| Movie/TV Board|| Is there an actress you find unspeakably hot in only one particular role? NSFW - Methuselah on 12/30/13 at 11:53 am|
For me, it has to be Rosie Perez in White Men can't jump. I caught a bit of that movie again over the holidays and she's just incredibly smoking in it. But scanning google images of her, most of them are pretty meh.
Couldn't find a lot of good ones of her from the movie but here i...
| SEC Rant|| Bama fans put Saban angel on top of Christmas tree - Methuselah on 12/29/13 at 4:39 am|
You can't make this stuff up.
| Coaching Changes|| Has Brown joined the list of once great coaches who lingered and hurt their team - Methuselah on 12/14/13 at 8:27 am|
The one that comes most readily to mind is Paterno (talking strictly football, not including all the other mess). I think you could put Bowden in there as well. And to some extent, I think even the Bear's team declined at the end.
Any others people can think of?...
| O-T Lounge|| Internet ads that target what you search for on Google - it's voodoo I tell ya - Methuselah on 12/2/13 at 11:15 pm|
Dang, Ricky Bobby, why you wanna put that vooodoo on ma computer?
We definitely live in the age of targeted advertising....
| Movie/TV Board|| How much does Harry Potter borrow from LOTRs? - Methuselah on 11/30/13 at 9:31 pm|
Definitely the putting the villains' soul/essence into objects. And old wise graybeard wizards.

And we (LSU) are not even listed. I feel left out. :lol:
| Tiger Rant|| Things I learned watching the game today . . . - Methuselah on 11/29/13 at 8:11 pm|
1. Zach Mettenberger is a frickin' man. And a true Tiger.
2. Jarvis Landry is a warrior with a great competitive drive. And a true Tiger.
3. The rumored decline of the Tiger stadium crowd is exaggerated. They showed up great from what I could see and they deserved to watch this exciting vic...
| Movie/TV Board|| What would you have done in Oda Mae's position in Ghost? - Methuselah on 11/29/13 at 7:59 pm|
I know she was pretty much a fraud at the beginning. But I can't help but feel embarrassed for her trying to convince Demmi Moore that Swayze was there and talking to her. I don't think I would have done it - no matter how many times he sang Henry the Eighth to keep me from sleeping. And to do th...
| Movie/TV Board|| Marvel comics fans - suggest some good TPB's for me, preferably Avengers related - Methuselah on 11/25/13 at 8:20 pm|
Well, Avengers or Avenger family in general. I usually get one of these for a stocking stuffer each year and am getting requests asking what I want. The ones I have so far:
West Coast Avengers - Family ties
Captain America and Buc...
| Tiger Rant|| Some story lines to watch for in the game for stat junkies - Methuselah on 11/20/13 at 5:58 am|
Of course just enjoying watching the game itself comes first. But anybody out there like to watch for individual story lines? Here are some that kind of caught my attention. From [link=(http://www.lsusports.net/src/data/lsu/assets/docs/fb/13stats/teamcume.htm)]This listing of LSU stats for 2013[/...
| Movie/TV Board|| My re-evaluation of The Hobbit on a 2nd viewing - Methuselah on 11/17/13 at 8:31 am|
I was very disappointed in the movie when I saw it in theaters. Now that I've seen it again on HBO, I liked it better. The
It's not a bad movie IMO. I think Bilbo was done well. They didn't go overboard on his fear/shyness/bumbling which they could have easily did. And the Bilbo/Thorin rela...
| More Sports Board|| So, after 1 round what's your thoughts on the LHSAA playoff split - Methuselah on 11/16/13 at 8:37 am|
I don't follow it too closely outside of our local team (lost in the 1st round in the last minute same as last year).
Just an impression I get scanning the scores is that there seem to be a few blow outs but that's been pretty much every year in the first round as far as I can remember. There al...
| Movie/TV Board|| What obscure characters would you like to see in upcoming Avengers movies? - Methuselah on 11/12/13 at 4:22 pm|
Even if it is a cameo - picture on the wall, photo in a newspaper, how they showed a glimpse of (an admittedly non obscure) you know who in the new Thor move?
Some I would like to see pop up:
Collector and/or Grandmaster - two best Elders by far
Firebird - they never did find a place for...
| Tiger Rant|| Name 5 teams you would trade the Tigers for - top to bottom - Methuselah on 11/12/13 at 9:20 am|
Looking for opinions here, so there are no wrong answers as far as I'm concerned.
If you could grab an entire team, heck, an entire program from the AD, the head coach, the assistants, the players, the strength and conditioning guys down to the water boys ... bring them to BR, put purple and gol...

- Natives & Dead Rabbits?
- Warriors vs. Er'body in the 5 boroughs?
