Not sure who all read the book series but I highly recommend it.
"The Strain" coming to FX in July 2014 is based upon the book series by Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan. A doctor with the CDC, Ephraim Goodweather, is attempting to understand and stop a vampiric outbreak in New York City. Meanw...
| Food and Drink Board|| Does a popper have to be encased or stuffed in a jalapeño? - Papercutninja on 11/18/13 at 9:15 am|
As the opening weekend of duck season in the West Zone has left me with an abundance of duck meat, my friends and I get into an annual argument. The dish that I have always known as duck poppers (duck wrapped in bacon with jalapeno and cream cheese) is consistently ridiculed for being semantically i...

Sweet Jesus, I order a fried shrimp fully dressed and what I get is essentially elongated English muffin/Egg McMuffin bread modestly stuffed with mealy fried shrimp. It isn't hard to fry shrimp and actually cook the corn meal. Also kudos on not having any internet presence or online menu so my wife ...
| O-T Lounge|| Most Ridiculous Halloween Sights Last Night - Papercutninja on 11/1/13 at 8:38 am|
What was the most messed up or ridiculous thing you saw last night while trick or treating with you kids or out in general?
My favorite: Man and woman with 8 month old baby, two bags of candy, no umbrella, soaked to the bone, just a booksack and no costumes. They were most definitely not from the...

When do you reach the point in your life where you have to break the sound barrier when in the bathroom? The gentlemen in my office seem to have all reached that point because it sounds like a World's Strongest Man competition in there. Last time a checked Magnusson does not work here.
So the qu...

Is it just me or has Russia totally lost respect for it's once powerful adversary? They "voted" in Putin to office and this ex-KGB ninja assassin just doesn't seem to be taking our Harvard educated think tank pony seriously at the big race. The President seems to think that he is going to win this l...

I was watching part of The Hard Way last night and I was thinking how great the chemistry was between James Woods and Michael J. Fox. Why wasn't it more popular? They had good timing together, James Woods was phenomenal as a angry washed up cop, and it had LL Cool J in it. This got me to thinking ab...
| Movie/TV Board|| Forrest Gump: The Unanswered Questions - Papercutninja on 7/19/13 at 10:07 am|
Forrest Gump has been on heavy rotation on HBO lately. I haven't watched it in many years but I found myself watching 2 times in the past week. If you can ignore the too often repeated one-liners that have become ingrained in pop culture, it is a really great movie. But I can't seem to shake two ver...

Yes, there are better beers but I enjoy it. I am going to be trashy by a hotel pool on Saturday before going to watch the Astros get raped. No glass allowed.
Where can I find Stella in cans in BR before I hit the road?...

Who are the REAL candidates going to be in 2014?
I heard on the radio about an hour ago that Rick Ward had abandoned his dad's party and is speculated to make a run. And we also have the Dietzel guy that wants a crack at the title.
Are these two it? Is there anyone else that is considering th...

I will preface this with I served in Iraq on 2004-2005. I saw some shite and have some issues, but don't we all. I have kept up with my old unit through Facebook and judging from their posts they were all apparently Seal Team 6, Delta, and Green Berets. Now mind you, we were National Guard. Is it ju...

| O-T Lounge|| B&H Construction located in the BR area - Papercutninja on 4/3/13 at 6:43 pm|
Just a note that this company is extremely unprofessional and essentially went out of their way to be rude to my wife for requesting a quote. After the gentlman told her there was no way he was giving her quote he then hung up the phone on her.
I would suggest calling anyone but this company.

I attended the Harvard Law of North Baton Rouge so I have quite a few liberal Facespace friends. To a person, the vast majority have some declaration of love and devotion to the President today on their status. Not pride or support, but love.
I respect some politicians. I even think that some se...

I found this dog today running down Sevenoaks toward Goodwood Park. She is a black female Cairn Terrier. She had a leash and a collar on so I am not sure if she ran away from a house or a person in the...

My wife just went and turned in our old DVR to get a newer model. We are notorious for stocking up shows and we always complained about wanting more space. We got this box in 2005 and never had to turn it in for any malfunctions.
By our previous estimates we had roughly 20 hours of HD recording ...

The portion that did not go through the remodel has a 1950's or 1960's era breaker panel that is laid out horizontally with only 8-10 breakers on it. Some are ...

I have been tasked with making some sort of crab meuniere dip that is to be served on toast points for the Thanksgiving festivities. I always thought that crab meuniere was simple brown butter sauce with parsley and lemon but my mother in law has described it as a creamy type sauce with cheeses.

Specifically that conservative strongholds like Texas will effectively be in play in the coming years due to the increase in the Latino population. Immigration seems to be the one issue that could easily swing the Latino vo...
