re: Twister...what's the board's opinion? - Baloo
Twister's greatest contribution to culture is that it helped inspire David Foster Wallace to write this essay about T2, which introduce the Inverse Cost and Quality Law: "The larger a movie's budget is, the shittier that movie is going to be." http://www.scribd.com/doc/14994144/David-Foster-Walla...

re: Unofficial NHL Season-Long Thread: Puckheads Unite! - Baloo
I think the top of the West is far stronger than the top of the East. But I think the East is far deeper and has about 11-12 legit playoff teams (which obviously can't happen). The big thing is the Western powers have all struggled out of the gate (which has gotten to be de rigeur for the Kings ...

re: Unofficial NHL Season-Long Thread: Puckheads Unite! - Baloo
Caps get a big road win on a pretty ridiculous Ovi goal. He went end to end, took a shot off the end boards and then pushed his own rebound to the opposite post. One man force of nature kinda goal. Very typical Caps game. Dominated possession, took a lead, blew a one-goal lead (twice!), someone p...

[quote]he was amazing in Gods and Monsters[/quote] Ian MacKellan claimed that Fraser was a much better movie actor than he was. What he was saying is that Fraser really could work with green screen and later added digital effects. I get the feeling Fraser just wasn't all that interested in maki...

Hey, I included a photo of Ovie and Shattenkirk appearing to make out during a game. What more do you want from me? That's true love, folks. I will note that Ovie appears to be the one doing the kissing, as he's not much of a two way player... or is he? ...

[quote]Well off the top of my head you said the Pens bottom six was still terrible, when it's near the top of the league in production.

[quote]1. You shouldn't have to win the division to go to a 4 team playoff. If you took out Alabama and Miss St. and put the Broncos and Patriots in the SEC West would you still argue the Broncos should be left out because they didn't win their division?

So you think they are relevant? You think you can determine quality of a team because Team A beat a FCS team by 38 points and Team B beat a MAC team by 21? I mean, who gives a crap either way? Both games were layups and near automatic wins. How bad you beat a bunch of teams outside the Power 5 is...

Hey, we got Latta out of that deal! It was a bad trade when it went down, and it was made worse by Oates' complete refusal to use the asset his GM traded for. Erat was buried on the 4th line. Then again, no one though Forsberg was THIS good. The organization had clearly soured on him in favor of...
