Yep, by the Belle of Baton Rouge. It's been a bunch of different places over the years. They re-opened it in the summer and Lil Jon was the first entertainer. ...

Red Star is generally decent. You're more likely to run into hipsters instead of douchebags.
I'm starting to warm up to the Brickyard South. It's a dive that has cheap beers. They've got Founder's All Day IPA on draft. The crowd there kind of reminds me what Port Royal used to be like years ago --...

Second Pelican House and the Cove. I'm more partial to the Cove, there's a tap room in the front of the bar with a bunch of beers on draft and some special bottles. Guy who works in there is a nice fellow too. Haven't been to the Cove in a while, because the set up in the bar is odd (My wife is a wi...

I think its easier to be a college coach than an NFL coach. You actually have an off season.
And you have more control over players -- you can run off thugs, guys with bad attitudes and head cases. It isn't like the NFL where a dickhead like Jay Cutler can put you in salary cap hell.

They've been talking about making a Jetsons movie since the 90s. I think I heard at one point they wanted Britney Spears to play Judy Jetson.
The Flintstone movies didn't set the world on fire. And do kids today know anything about the Jetsons or care about the Jetsons? Seems to me the whole thing...

My wife was watching it yesterday evening, so I half watched it.
The movie wasn't as good as I remembered it being in 1999. I think it's really hurt by the fact that Stanley Kubrick had been hermetically sealed from other people for years before he made it -- some of the stuff just doesn't ring tru...

| Movie/TV Board|| re: SNL: Serial skit - timbo on 12/22/14 at 11:41 am|
The skit wasn't that funny exactly, what was great was how they nailed everything about the show, even how Adnan talks and the horrible grating way his attorney spoke to Jay.
By the way, to go off topic -- I'm convinced his attorney is why Adnan ended up in jail. The way she cross-examined Jay, ...
