As a Tim and Eric fan, I kinda hope he comes here so I can sing their Rolo song when he makes a good play.

Fiance and I ate at Galatoire's once and the waitress kept smiling and being like, "don't worry it's taken care of." We both swore she was joking by her tone, so we waited around a while. After tracking her down and getting a couple of the same response (she also essentially stopped coming to our ta...

Mainly bass and guitar, and vocals. Serviceable on keys and drums.
Getting a lot better on upright lately.
It's been slow going lately with playing but I'm starting a countryish band just to start playing again. I've posted stuff I wrote here once before with my band the honeysuckles. ...

In response to the original post, I'm probably one of few here who make the exact drive from the magazine/Louisiana area uptown to covington with frequency.
You have to take into account both the time to get to the interstate (no quick on ramp for this area) and wherever you're going in Covingto...

Fiancé got me one at Christmas. I like it a lot, but you really get what you put into it and some features are better than others.
The best thing is the alarm, which wakes you up around the time you set and waits for when you are in light sleep. Plus a small vibration on your wrist is a much bet...

Good god. This is exactly it. Who cares how we define these things because everybody's got their own definition anyway. I will reiterate "informed by conservative ideals" as the takeaway characteristic of this board. That allows for all your defining a...

Please, tell this ignorant "prog" more about what he is and isn't.
Libertarians are more liberal maybe in the arcane definition of the word, but I would argue the modern "liberal" is willing to view government directed policies less pejoratively than libertarians. And since most, including you, ...

Geez, man. Reading comprehension. As far as my ORIGINAL point goes. Meaning this board represents the right (and all of its differing perspectives that you so clearly want to educate us on) as much as reddit represents the left.

So you put in bold the words and phrases that you think make your point? What about Chavez's bit about being polarizing, confrontational, and domineering? Also, being labeled a populist isn't exactly praise in itself.
