For me, art peaked with the Impressionists. It went beyond the older art which, while often brilliant was more designed to give a photographic like representation (I think maybe the advent of photography had something to do with art branching out from that). And when done right it added an emotion...
| Movie/TV Board|| Anybody here ever watched the movie Mickey with Harry Connick, Jr. - Methuselah on 8/19/14 at 7:58 pm|
I guess the Little League World Series being on reminded me of this movie.
It's not the best received movie but I thought it had some high parts. The part about drafting teams really is pretty close to what goes on in youth baseball drafts. And I thought Connick did a decent acting job.

I saw that the "Ghosts of Mississippi" episode of 30/30 (or was it SEC Stories?) was on yesterday. That was a pretty good program about a time/event I really never looked in...

I"m pretty sure I heard a Tennessee guy on the radio this afternoon saying that Tenn. has completely new starters on the entire offensive and defensive lines.
So I think it would be a bit of a stretch they have much of a chance to beat Bama....

Same here. Well, I don't catch hell for it but I know it is a minority opinion. Moore was Bond when I first started watching the movies so I guess I just equate him with the character.

That's definitely one. The whole perch / brem / panfish, etc. things probably have more names than just about anything.

Thought about this when I walked outside this morning and saw a "mosquito hawk" and realized how in many (most?) places it is called a "dragon fly".
And of course the old "soft drink" "cold drink" "pop" thing is pretty well known.
