| O-T Lounge|| Spinoff: Casual shoes/boots WIDE edition - OldHickory on 11/20/14 at 11:08 pm|
Are there any snazzy, comfortable(most important) wide dress shoes or boots? Like, along the lines of 4E? I'm damned with wide feet. Buying shoes is a real hassle for me. I'm on my feet constantly. Work boots won't cut it... needs to fit in with business casual. Prefer dark brown leather.
| O-T Lounge|| Easy Rider - Which Coonass Parish Killed 'Dem Boys - OldHickory on 4/1/14 at 11:07 pm|
Every time I watch this movie, I get pissed as shite. Between the slack-jawed sheriff and the fricker in the CAT hat... beating Jack Nicholson's brains in during the night, and then taking the 12-gauge to Fonda and Hopper.
What part of Louisiana does this take place? Own up to it...

"Creepy deer skeleton interwoven with an antique dressmaking bust."
This is ideal for you hunters out there with a Mrs. at home who thinks taxidermy is tacky.

| Money Talk|| Buying Home - Potential Flood Insurance Worries - OldHickory on 2/12/14 at 5:31 pm|
First off, I'm ignorant on the topic of flood insurance. I grew up on a mountain... what do you expect?
I'm wanting to purchase a home in New Orleans, but I'm extremely concerned about the potential of massive flood insurance rate hikes coming down the pike. I know the details and maps have yet...
| Movie/TV Board|| Let's discuss Benny Hill - OldHickory on 2/8/14 at 12:04 am|
How big was he in America back in his day? I was born in '78, and the only thing I know of was from the early days of Comedy Central. The Benny Hill Show was shown a couple of times a day, and I thought it was pure comedic genius. I still think it's awesome. Henry McGee, Jackie Wright, Bob Todd....

My folks are in town and I need to occupy some time. Obviously, Wolf of Wall Street is a no. How bad(good) is the T&A in AH? Don't wanna give mom a coronary.
Would YOU go see it with your folks? They're in their mid-60's and fairly conservative. Did I just answer my own question......

| Food and Drink Board|| Liverwurst or Braunschweiger in NOLA? - OldHickory on 12/7/13 at 9:42 am|
Does anyone have a good source for quality liverwurst, liver sausage or braunschweiger in New Orleans? I recently tried some really good stuff while out of town and I'm craving more.
Looking for the smooth, spreadable type rather than the firm slicing kind. Think pate.

As you may or may not know, today would've been Buck Owens' 84th birthday. Buck holds a special place in my heart. Right around the time I really came to know real country music, "Streets of Bakersfield" with Dwight Yoakam popped out on the charts. I feel blessed to say that I listened to Buck's wee...
