| 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...

| Movie/TV Board|| Meshach Taylor RIP - alajones on 6/28/14 at 10:53 pm|
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 ...

My son (14) wants minecraft. His computer is about 8 years old and runs on XO.

| 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. ...
| Food and Drink Board|| Bizarre Foods- what could you handle? - alajones on 4/1/14 at 9:37 pm|
I love this show, mainly because Iike the host a lot. There are many things that seem to show up time and again no matter the location.
Things I could handle
Tongue...just a big piece of meat right?
I'd try blood sausage and blood cake, but I don't see me liking it.
Things I would say no t...

| Movie/TV Board|| Movies that were better than you thought they would be - alajones on 3/18/14 at 12:11 pm|
What are some movies that exceeded the amount of entertainment you assumed you would get because "they" said it sucked?
Dark Shadows- I found this movie to be hilarious. Johnny Depp was really funny. And like many movies, the antagonist makes the difference. The witch was really good and she and ...

| O-T Lounge|| What is the grossest thing you do on a regular basis? - alajones on 2/26/14 at 9:10 pm|
I would have to say unclogging the sinks in my and my kid's bathrooms. Two females in the house. Sinks are choked with hair and toothpaste residue every six months or so.
Scooping litter every morning. Three cats, two bus bins used as litter boxes. Worst part of my day....

First of all...what was in the goddamn case!!!???
Okay, so maybe I am giving this movie too much credit for having layers upon layers of things to think about but,
I've always thought that the Irish gal gave him the booty strategically. There really isn't much of a romance and getting busy in ...
