I love this movie. I have it memorized and own it on dvd but I have a question that I can't seem to answer.
Possible spoilers: (and if you haven't seen this movie, you should watch it)
Shortly after the beginning, with the who...
| Food and Drink Board|| New Orleans people, I need some recommendations for places to eat - la_birdman on 6/14/14 at 1:41 am|
Actually, in the Quarter. I'm taking my cousin and her daughter (don't ask :lol:) to New Orleans on Sunday. Neither have ever been and I can't really think of places to take them to experience the whole culinary experience.
I know about Mothers and a place down near the river, close to Jacks...

I need some help with this.
I have an Apple TV 2 and I'm trying to download the Watch ESPN app.
I typed it all in correctly in the browser and it comes up (the exact same screen you'd see if you were using ESPN3) but to watch anything I have to download the app.
So I go down to the "d...
| Food and Drink Board|| My first go with short beef ribs in the oven. (Photos) - la_birdman on 5/21/14 at 12:59 am|
Ok, I tried to copy Degas' recipe even though I don't have a grill, my bro in law is borrowing it, but I wanted to try this.
I've had these marinating for over 24 hours. They already smell amazing.
I'm praying I don't mess this up. They smell so good.
I have them on a cookie rac...
| O-T Lounge|| Anybody seeing termites on their carports or in garages? - la_birdman on 5/11/14 at 1:07 am|
The ones that show up every year. I can't remember when they usually show up. For some reason, I thought it was in the fall.
I've seen a few here. Not the flying ones, but they were on my truck so maybe they just lost their wings....
| Food and Drink Board|| Does anyone know of any good frozen lo mein? - la_birdman on 5/6/14 at 11:22 pm|
I've tried the frozen bags of PF Changs noodles, think it said Dan Dan noodles on the bag, but I wasn't really impressed.
Not sure if it was because it was frozen, the sauce packets or what.
I love good Chinese lo mein but has anyone gotten any good packages in the frozen section at the ...
| Food and Drink Board|| Is there a Piccadilly cafeteria in BR? - la_birdman on 5/2/14 at 12:02 am|
I just saw that the one that's been here since I've been around is closing.
Do not like this. I love their mac & cheese.
Yeah, it's weird but in Lake Charles, we...
| Food and Drink Board|| Your thoughts on Wing Street wings from Pizza Hut - la_birdman on 3/29/14 at 12:01 am|
I thought about stopping at picking some up but I've had wings from Domino's before and they weren't very good.
Not sure if it was because they were oven baked rather than fried but they weren't good.
I've had Pluckers wings before when I was over in BR and loved them.
Wondering if t...
| Food and Drink Board|| What's your fav. kind of fries to cook up at home? - la_birdman on 3/5/14 at 1:33 am|
Shoestring? The frozen bag of Checkers fries? The curly ones? Steak fries?
I find myself going from the shoestring ones and the checkers/Popeyes looking fries. ...
| Olympics Board|| Anyone know where I could get one of the jackets the snowboarders wear? - la_birdman on 2/13/14 at 12:16 am|
I didn't see it listed so I apologize if it's already been covered.
Those jackets the snowboarders wear are really cool. Anyone know/read if they are massed produced to buy?

I don't think this is a spoiler but just to be safe:
What is the plant the Somali guys keep eating? It's piqued my curiosity....
| Food and Drink Board|| I'm on the fence about trying anchovies. Help!! - la_birdman on 1/26/14 at 2:18 am|
What do they taste like?
I know worcestershire sauce has anchovies in it and I like the taste of that.
I'm having a hard time getting past the little skeletal filets on a pizza.
Are they fishy or do they taste like steak sauce?
Pardon my ignorance.
| More Sports Board|| Anyone know if there will be a different trophy for the NC next season? - la_birdman on 1/6/14 at 11:43 pm|
My dad and I were talking about it and we really have no idea. I love that waterford crystal football personally. I'd hate to see them go to something that looks weird.
Anyone know if the trophy will stay the same?...
| Food and Drink Board|| What places are open on Thanksgiving? - la_birdman on 11/26/13 at 12:22 am|
Not looking for a traditional turkey dinner, just a place with some good food and where we can get drinks.
We'll be driving over from Lake Charles.
We did this in 2011 and went to Ruffino's, I assume that place will be open.
Any other places? Sullivan's perhaps?
Crap, maybe Hooters?...
| Food and Drink Board|| Made my first salsa tonight. - la_birdman on 10/25/13 at 11:23 pm|
Wasn't brain surgery. It was really easy actually.
I followed directions for my favorite salsa from a place I went to when I lived in Florida.
Doesn't look like much in the Cuisinart but it tastes just like the real thing.
Best salsa I've had.
| Food and Drink Board|| Anyone have any recommended grilled chicken wing recipes? - la_birdman on 10/17/13 at 12:19 am|
I'm looking to grill some of these up on our little propane grill. It uses those propane cylinders that you screw on.
Even on low, it still tends to get a little hot, especially with the lid closed.
I've never tried grilled chicken wings but I don't think it'll be like splitting atoms. ...
| O-T Lounge|| I saw a very touching thing while tailgating this past Saturday at LSU - la_birdman on 10/15/13 at 12:12 am|
We were tailgating like we always do, hooking up the tv and starting to grill and getting the drinks going.
A lady walks by our tailgate who was walking her dog. Only her dog had an obvious spinal cord injury. He was paralyzed from the rear legs to his tail. His rear legs where just withered t...
| Food and Drink Board|| Anyone try those Mighty Wings at McD's? - la_birdman on 9/30/13 at 12:03 am|
I never eat at McD's, but I love me some wings so I was curious.
I tried them and they are really good.
Anyone who lives near a Publix grocery store knows what I'm talking about when I say they're just like the Publix deli hot wings.
They look like just regular fried wings, I'm sure you'v...
| Food and Drink Board|| Looking for good chargrilled oyster recipes UPDATED with pics - la_birdman on 9/18/13 at 11:57 pm|
I'm going to bring some oysters to the game this Saturday. I have oyster shells and a decent little grill.
Any good recipes for chargrilled oysters from the F&DB?
I'm going to bring some butter, shredded cheese, some tabasco, maybe some garlic powder.
Any suggestions would be great!

I remember watching this as a kid but it could've been from the late 60s even, just before I was born.
It was about airplanes or some military type show. I'm almost certain it was a series but it could've been a movie, I guess.
The only thing I remember is in the opening credits they showed t...

All this guy does, at least on the Tiger Rant, is flame other posters and try to derail threads. He does it day in and day out.
The rant is crazy enough without this guy's ridiculousness.
It's not even h...
| Movie/TV Board|| Need help finding the title of a movie. - la_birdman on 7/30/13 at 1:07 am|
This is for anyone over 30. It was a shark movie that came out in the late 70s, it was after Jaws, that I'm sure of.
This guy was a marine biologist or something and he wore this necklace with a shark tooth on it. As long as he wore it when he scuba dived, the sharks wouldn't mess with him. ...

I swear the girl that lives in the place next to me is OCD about cleaning. It's [b]all[/b] she does. I can hear the vacuum running, she's sliding furniture around making a ton of noise. She's now running a bunch of water for something, no idea what because the place isn't that big and she's the only...

Thought I'd share with the LSU universe.
My cousin was down here last football season and went to her first LSU game and has been sold since. She picked a good game despite the outcome, last season's game vs. the Gumps.
She lives in Pennsylvania but comes to visit every couple years and w...

This is what I cooked. Some chipotle seasoned ribs.
Cooked on a low fire for a couple of hours on my bro in law's pit. That thing turns out some killer ribs.
| Tiger Rant|| Baseball Tiger Fans... I need your help. Question about a former pitcher - la_birdman on 5/28/13 at 1:30 am|
We had a pitcher last season that had a habit of letting his right arm hang while he was getting the plays from the catcher. He would almost bend over while getting the plays and his right arm would hang and he'd hold the ball.
My dad said Ranaudo but he wasn't there last year.
Who was it...
