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.
Classic line inspired by th...

Got my tickets too--Steely Dan is maybe the last band on my bucket list that I've yet to see. One more month!
Visited my son a couple of months ago... he had the Aja album playing. I said I was surprised, he asked "Why? You and mom used to play this a lot when I was a baby. It comfor...

Yeah, and all the music being played at that party was so classic! (sarcasm intended).

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?
Some years ago in Jefferson Parish I agreed to go to traffic school one night and I wasn't docked on my insura...
