| Movie/TV Board|| Star Wars Rebels - alajones on 12/15/14 at 9:36 am|
I had avoided this series because the animation looked a little juvenile. But this weekend my son and I caught the marathon and I have to admit I was very into it. The stories are pretty good. It's just as good as The Clone Wars so far. I really enjoyed it. I wish Vader was in it.
I'm sure other...
| Tech Board|| Desktop PC for $400-500 range, better to build or buy off the shelf? - alajones on 12/2/14 at 12:22 pm|
Looking to get my son a new desktop. He's using a 2006 era with 2 GB of Ram and Windows XP. He's not a huge gamer but he wants to be able to play Steam type stuff.
It's just time. His monitor is his TV. About a 5 year old JVC LCD.
Is it unreasonable to build a new one with at least 8 GB of R...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Reasons to be negative and optimistic - alajones on 11/12/14 at 10:41 am|
So listening to the radio yesterday I hear a guy discussing some reasons to be worried.
Since the Sean Payton era began, the Saints are 12-4 in game decided by 3 points or less IN PLAYOFF YEARS. In non playoff years, the Saints are 1-7 in games decided by three or less.
| Tiger Rant|| 1964 LSU football team honored, 50th aniversary of Sugar Bowl win vs Syracuse - alajones on 10/17/14 at 9:32 pm|
Tonight the 1965 LSU team was honored at LSU. They defeated the previously unbeaten Arkansas Razorbacks 14-7 in the 1966 Cotton Bowl. It was and still is one of the biggest wins in LSU history. This is a photo taken during the 50th anniv. dinner.
My dad is in the middle standing.
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| We still have a lot of home games - alajones on 10/6/14 at 3:05 pm|
Patriots, Packers and us. All started off slow, all had three of the first four on the road, all still with a lot of home games, all still in the hunt for a division title.
I'm just sayin'....

| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Three specific things I think are hurting this team. - alajones on 9/29/14 at 9:32 am|
1. Not signing Carl Nicks. Tough to say if our o line would be better. But "I think" it would be.
2. High DB draft picks are not working out. Not that specific I guess, but maybe the most damning problem with our defense.
3. Galette and Jordan really don't seem to be having a huge impact and t...
| Tech Board|| How do I watch video and post at the same time? - alajones on 9/24/14 at 11:34 am|
I have windows 7, and I would like to watch a video and have TD open with the ability to post without minimizing the video.
How do I do that?
ETA Nevermind, figured it out....
| Movie/TV Board|| Do you ever "mourn" a character's death? (warning: spoilers obviously) - alajones on 9/16/14 at 12:52 pm|
I have. Like actually grieved for a couple of days after the character's death. A couple of examples are:
1. Dumbledore. I remember reading the book and totally being stunned. I kept waiting for him to come back to life or something. And it never happened. I literally mourned his passing for a co...
| Movie/TV Board|| Transformers 4, Nebraska...spoiler free - alajones on 8/24/14 at 11:39 pm|
Transformers 4...didn't hate it. Maybe I just assumed it would be steaming shite and it wasn't completely? I liked it a lot more than #s 2 & 3. Megatron once again wasn't given his due as the evil killing machine he is. But I liked following Marky Mark around a lot more than Shia. And I don't remembe...
| O-T Lounge|| Myth about paying cash for cars - alajones on 8/6/14 at 4:41 pm|
Why do buyers think that they are entitled to some drastic discount off of sticker price because they are paying cash? And I mean ENTITLED. Not like just trying to get a good deal.
Does everyone here realize that the dealership actually makes less money like that? They make more money financing c...

Meshach Taylor will soon be leaving us. He is 67.
I will always remember him as Anthony Bouvier from Designing Women. It wasn't a good episode unless Anthony was dressed up as a woman.
Apparently he was ...

| Movie/TV Board|| Game of Thrones season 3 (My thoughts, spoilers included) - alajones on 5/2/14 at 10:31 am|
Well, I'm not sure what to think about this show anymore. GRRM spent an entire season setting up a family to be the main focus of the show and then spends one night pretty much ending that family. Like I had pointed out in my previous season 2 thread, I had grown weary of the Starks, and now they ar...
| Movie/TV Board|| Game of Thrones Season 2 discussion (spoilers) - alajones on 4/21/14 at 6:06 pm|
So I finished up season 2. I get why they don't have major battles every episode, and I am glad they blew their wads on the Kings Landing battle. That was an awesome episode. What a great battle scene. No CGI (sans fleet blowing up) or stupid video game looking crap, just good old fashioned men runn...
| Movie/TV Board|| GoT season 1 (Spoilers) - alajones on 4/12/14 at 4:59 pm|
Finally watching this series. Finished season 1 and started on Season 2 last night. Love it so far. I hate that the Dathraki never invaded. Stunned when Ned bought it. Although I have to say he was kind of an idiot not to immediately swear loyalty to Geoffrey and get the hell out of King's Landing. ...
