| Music Board|| re: Worst Albums of all time - parrotdr on 6/22/14 at 10:37 am|
Whenever this topic comes up folks try to take albums that were popular by legitimate bands/artists and nominate them just because they don't like them. (See above).
However, if we're gonna talk worst, let's talk worst. This is it.

Yep, weird on some of that stuff. He puts Jefferson as a "pro-style" and qualifies it by saying he only rushed for 30 yds/game, but has Russell as a "dual threat". What was his average in his BEST year of rushing? Senior year--10.5 yds/game. Before that? 2.7, -0.3, -1.5.
Don't quite get th...

I loved the first one. I like the next two, but they all just blur together in my mind now. I didn't think there was enough distinct storytelling.
The Renner one didn't really offer much other than to go into the whole "meds" thing. Was that in the books? IDK.

Anyone with experience in Orleans Parish with speeding tickets (radar-clocked, NOT a camera ticket)? What is the process to go to court and somehow get them to not list it on insurance?

I have been a Springsteen fan since the 70's, and loved his show Saturday. I agree with many that his songwriting peaked back then, but Tom Morello has really spiced his latest album/tour. The solo on "Ghost of Tom Joad" was awesome.
My 17 y/o son, who is a talented musician and songwriter, wan...
| O-T Lounge|| re: Is Selling Mary Kay a Pyramid Scheme? - parrotdr on 2/22/14 at 7:11 pm|
A true pyramid scheme involves only receiving money from those below you. Eventually with the exponential growth requirement of each person at the bottom needing to recruit to make money and bounce it upward, the pyramid topples and those in the bottom portion lose their investment.

It's for a Hawkeye friend of mine.
Similar to this perhaps?
