| Movie/TV Board|| 'beware mr. baker' documentary - vandelay industries on 12/9/14 at 6:40 pm|
just watched it on netflix today. man, this guy (ginger baker) is an insufferable prick, a lousy husband & father, and basically just an absolute trainwreck, many times over....but man, he can fricking play the drums like a beast. even if you know nothing about him or his career, it's one of those do...
| Movie/TV Board|| 'the office' x-mas special (BBC) - vandelay industries on 12/2/14 at 9:04 pm|
watched it for the first time in awhile....great stuff. glad tim finally got the "happily ever after" ending with dawn. while david brent's ending was on a high note, it was more of a "cautiously optimistic" finish....you're never 100% certain that he won't find a way to frick it up the next day, lol...
| Movie/TV Board|| 'penguins of madagascar' movie.....anyone interested? - vandelay industries on 11/26/14 at 10:48 am|
taking my 7-year old daughter to see it this afternoon. while i enjoyed the 'madagascar' movies, i don't really have any urge to revisit them again & again....on the other hand, i admit the 'penguins of madagascar' TV show is a guilty pleasure, and i've LOL'd often at skipper's smarty-pants dialogue...
| SEC Rant|| was SC's onside kick legal? - vandelay industries on 10/26/14 at 9:24 pm|
according to the NCAA rule book:
[i]NCAA Rule 6, Article 12: No kicking team player may block until the ball is eligible to be touched by the kicking team.[/i]
weren't SC's players blocking before the kick went 10 yards? i know i'm just picking nits, but living where i do, the SC homers won't ...
| Music Board|| if queen did a commercial jingle about bacon.... - vandelay industries on 10/20/14 at 12:27 pm|
has anyone heard this commercial? musically, it's a hilariously faithful queen impersonation IMO....kind of reminds me of "mustapha" from the 'jazz' album.

| Auburn Sports Board|| gus & his tendency to outsmart himself - vandelay industries on 9/19/14 at 7:13 am|
i've said this elsewhere....for sure, i'm onboard with gus malzahn as our coach, but part of me believes he's still a work in progress. there have been times, dating back to the OC days, where it almost seems like he puts wrinkles in the gameplan more as a "look everyone, see what i can do here" mom...
| Auburn Sports Board|| iron bowl 2013 DVD on i-offer - vandelay industries on 9/5/14 at 7:50 pm|
has anyone purchased this? it's the only site i can find a DVD of the game. i currently have it on DVR, but i have to swap cable boxes for an upgrade, so bye-bye to that. any post-game footage, or is it just the game? TIA......
| Movie/TV Board|| 'the three stooges' reboot.....i really wanted to hate it, but.... - vandelay industries on 8/19/14 at 9:30 am|
my 7-year old daughter couldn't stop giggling, and i gotta admit her laughter was contagious. she saw a scene last week on FX while flipping channels, and she asked if we could get it & watch the whole thing (which i was kinda groaning inside over the thought), so i picked up a used copy for $7. the...
| Music Board|| album ideas you're glad were scrapped - vandelay industries on 8/13/14 at 7:41 am|
while watching pink floyd's 'wish you were here' making-of story, david gilmour briefly mentioned the 'household objects' idea that never came to fruition. basically, the bulk of the album was to feature, yup, household objects as the "instruments". not sure how it would've sounded, but i'm probably...
| Music Board|| MFSL ultradiscs, mastersound CDs, etc... - vandelay industries on 8/10/14 at 5:29 pm|
i own a few ultradiscs + a sony mastersound disc, but i bought 'em all back in the 90's....are they still considered the "definitive" versions, or would any recent remasters give 'em a run for the money? for example, i just listened to my 'wish you were here' mastersound disc after having it in stor...
| SEC Rant|| post something you witnessed that only diehard fans would appreciate.... - vandelay industries on 8/7/14 at 8:08 am|
in other words, post something that doesn't have the ESPN highlight reel appeal of a "kick six" or "bluegrass miracle", but something an avid fan would recognize as an impressive feat.
last night, i was talking to one of my gamecock buddies about this season's auburn/USC-e matchup, and we reminis...
| Music Board|| doyle bramhall II - vandelay industries on 7/10/14 at 9:36 pm|
i'm sure it's been stated before, but....how the frick can he play guitar that way? and play [i]extremely well[/i], at that?? i can't think of anyone else that can play a right-handed guitar left-handed.......
| Movie/TV Board|| 'the shield' vs. 'sons of anarchy' (potential spoilers) - vandelay industries on 7/8/14 at 9:21 am|
both shows have shared some fingerprints (first and foremost, kurt sutter....but also jay karnes, kenny johnson, benito martinez, david rees snell, and walton goggins, off the top of my head), and seem like they could've existed in the same alternate universe. also, kosic's "oh, shit" death in SOA w...
| Music Board|| potential stiffie alert: new pink floyd album in october?? - vandelay industries on 7/5/14 at 6:04 pm|
i'll need more info before going completely esctatic (will existing rick wright tracks be used? is nick mason onboard? dare i suggest, will roger make a cameo?)...
| SEC Rant|| those bama fans that CBS's cameras showed after the "kick six".... - vandelay industries on 6/14/14 at 9:36 am|
not trying to start shite (although inevitably, shite will probably start anyway, lol), but i was wondering if anyone knows (or knows someone that knows) any of those shell-shocked bama fans CBS was showing at the end of the iron bowl. is it a status they've embraced in good fun, or does it annoy them...
| Movie/TV Board|| crappy old-school monster flicks that deserve a remake - vandelay industries on 6/1/14 at 10:22 pm|
was having some 'godzilla' fever, so i checked out some old-school monster trailers on the PS4 for a possible rental....after watching a few of 'em, i thought "wow, these seemed alot better when i was a kid" & realized how awful they really are :lol:
i'm going with 'the beast from 20,000 fathoms'...
| Movie/TV Board|| favorite sitcom parents (not part of the main cast) - vandelay industries on 5/9/14 at 10:52 pm|
i was catching up on some episodes of 'legit', and steve & billy's parents (john ratzenberger & mindy sterling) were killing me...so for the moment, they get my vote. any other nominations?...
| Movie/TV Board|| so i'm re-watching 'justified' right now.... - vandelay industries on 4/26/14 at 9:12 am|
i'm watching the series again & i'm almost through with season 2. now that everything is soaked in, i realized more than ever: why the frick does raylan waste his time trying to make good with winona? man, talk about high-maintenance...on her best days, it seems like she's always trying to pick a fig...
| Gaming Board|| any updates on a new NCAA football game? - vandelay industries on 4/20/14 at 10:59 pm|
first i read that EA had to retire the NCAA franchise. shortly after that, i read that EA & the NCAA reached an agreement, but it was a non-exclusive agreement (which was exciting news to me, 'cuz it might put a fire under EA's complacent asses). this was a few months ago, and since then i've heard ...
| Music Board|| just saw umphery's for the first time.... - vandelay industries on 4/7/14 at 11:54 pm|
don't know what the general consensus is on this board, but IMO they brought the heat. had no idea they were in town tonight 'til a friend called me & informed me, and we ended up driving to the venue at the last second...turns out there were 20 tickets left, so we managed to get in. couldn't tell y...
