I actually used to work with Don Lemon back in my TV news days.
I wasn't blown away by his intelligence or his general knowledge of how the world works. He is good on camera, though. That's really all you need these days.

| Movie/TV Board|| re: Fantastic Four 2 and Galactus - SpqrTiger on 8/19/14 at 9:31 am|
Giant arse Galactus works for me. Big ol spaceship sucking the life energy of earth, driven by an equally huge interplanetary titan.
He's an iconic character in the comics. No reason he couldn't be the same in a movie.
Basically, just like this:

I think it's great. I don't need my pro football players to pretend to be little angels on the field.
I really don't care about the occasional flip off or fight. Most of the time they are penalized for it or fined, so there you go. What I'm not going to do is complain about it on a message boa...

Tom Papa is a very good clean comedian.
Two specials on Netflix if you want to check him out.
Bill Cosby-type family humor, mostly.

I think as we see more high tech weaponry evolve, there will be more ways to defeat it via hacking and electronics manipulation.
I think in time we will see the pendulum swing back in the other direction. The future of warfare is in better, lighter and more powerful infantry and anti-infantry ar...

| Tiger Rant|| re: clarify something about SEC network opening for me - SpqrTiger on 8/15/14 at 10:20 am|
I'm sure they took great care to represent the schools equally, but in editing you can't always get an exact equal representation.
I mean, there were multiple quotes from Vanderbilt, even.
They obviously tried to even it out, and still came out with a great and emotional video.
| Tiger Rant|| re: How big is LSU football in your life? - SpqrTiger on 8/13/14 at 8:30 am|
LSU football is important to me, and it brings entertainment into my life.
I use that word specifically, because it doesn't actually provide anything substantial. It provides fun and enjoyment, and fun and enjoyment are important to me. I want to have things in my life that are positive and ful...

But not to worry, NFL network will rebroadcast it Tuesday at 2am. ......

I'm pretty sure that Jim himself really didn't give a shite how he met his death or who or what expedited it.
He had been on a collision course with an early death practically from early adulthood, and he knew it. ...

Knowing both people involved in this matter, I can say this:
First, color me unsurprised when it comes to Charlie Roberts. The guy is creepy and there are all kinds of rumors about him and the women he keeps on staff at the Alumni Association. Most people I know at LSU can't wait until he leave...

There's no need to overthink this. Get your dick wet.
She's unattached, so are you... go have a little fun.
You don't have to marry her. It's just sex.
| Movie/TV Board|| re: Conan vs Jimmy Fallon - SpqrTiger on 8/5/14 at 8:58 am|
I prefer Conan.
The thing I don't like about Fallon is his formula of "let's interview a celebrity then play a game/have a contest with him." It feels like he's competing with his guests for attention.
Conan is definitely best when he's outside the studio, doing location shoots.

I will agree with you that I wish Hollywood created more original content, not based on prior works.
But i don't know if there ever really was a time when Hollywood catered to the "serious" film lover.
Hollywood wants to appeal to the average audience member, not the elite.
I sympathize w...

What I like about the commercial: the Dad is teaching his kids. All good coaches teach teach teach. Constantly teaching. That's a good thing to show.
What I didn't like about the commercial: it's awesome to show a Dad so involved with his kids, but if the dad didn't mention that he worked, I...

The reason the man told his friend about the affair is that he is asking for help.
He knows what he is doing is wrong and he wants a way out. That's why he's asking his friend for support. He just doesn't know how to come out and say it.
To the OP, my advice... help your friend straighten up...

I think Rush has an excellent point here.
Political Correctness really mirrors the story of the Emperor's New Clothes. It doesn't actually exist unless you let it exist.
Who is the person who is unaffected by political correctness? The person who doesn't allow himself to be affected by it. ...

Here's how I see this playing out.
He will be redshirted, and since he's sitting idle, he will probably be arrested two more times before next season, leading to a dismissal sometime next summer.
Let's see if he fulfills his destiny.

I'm a surviving spouse myself, and I've dated a widow before.
My policy is that photos of deceased spouse...
