| Soccer Board|| Penalty Kicks - a terrible decider - TexasTiger1185 on 6/28/14 at 2:14 pm|
I think they are exciting to watch, obviously. More scoring happens in 5 min than in the previous 120. But I don't find them to be a very accurate decider of a game of this proportion.
Why couldn't they just play more time? Make it a golden goal type OT after the 120. ...

Great part of the golden years box set for Grateful Dead. I love this shit, they didn't take much of it with them moving forward.
My favorite tracks are "can't come down" "caution (dont stop on the tracks" and "confusion's prince (mind bender)"

| Movie/TV Board|| Seen Angel Heart? Let's get some answers**obvious spoilers** - TexasTiger1185 on 6/20/14 at 8:54 pm|
First off, I really enjoyed this movie. I think New Orleans added to my enjoyment, but still.
My biggest question is this: is Rourke really the killer, or is it de Niro?
I think de Niro made Rourke crazy.
Bonet is smoking! Worth it to get kicked off Cosby Show. ...

This was one intense movie. I just finished it, damn!
Always end up looking things up about these true stories afterwards, and I'll be damned if the actor they found for the pirate captain isn't identical to the real guy.

Is there a better Western storyteller than him?
I'm reading the third installment in Lonesome Dove, "Comanche Moon" and it's fantastic. Violent, dramatic, Gus and Call are great as usual.
His ability to make you fall in love with even his most evil characters is maybe my favorite part. Buffal...

I called and they gave me a credit and I got something different, but today I decided to rent this movie again. Lo and behold it...

Waited on hold for a while then hung up.
If a buddy printed 2 tickets to a show and gave them to me, he isn't going. Do I need to have them transferred to my name?
I've got the tickets, no will call, but they have his name on them. I should be good without a transfer, right?...
