Yeah, I identify. I mean, if there's a phone or a face-to-face interview, they'll realize right off the bat that I'm a white guy. ...

Have you ever seen Trainspotting?[/quote]
Requiem for a Dream makes Trainspotting look like a commercial for drugs. I've watched Trainspotting multiple times, I have zero interest in seeing Requiem again. It was just too disturbing. You see the ho...

Downtown Seafood or Fresh Junkie are the two I would go for. They're not fancy, but they're good and pretty inexpensive.
Isn't there a Dearman's in the new courthouse? Thought I remember hearing they would go in there. I don't work downtown anymore, so I haven't checked it out....

I think Affleck will make a fine Batman. And I liked Ezra Miller in Wallflower. But he ain't the Flash. And if Batman vs. Superman bombs, DC is flat out fricked. ...

I root for other Louisiana schools, because I want to see the state do well. But I make an exception for ULaLa. If they would play ISIS State, I'm rooting for those dudes. And I like the city of Lafayette a lot, have good friends there and my Dad got his Master's from the university. But they've sho...

I can't imagine the networks being upset if games were shortened a little bit. They would probably love for games to be right at 2 hours. Now reducing the number of games, that might be an issue. But that sure as hell won't happen because it would hurt teams financially. ...

At the risk of getting ragged on, I hope the next companion isn't a gorgeous woman from modern times in her early- to mid-20s. They need to break that string and change stuff up. I would like to see a Han Solo/Jack Harkness/Mal Reynolds-type rogue traveling with the Doctor. Think that would work goo...

Wow. I would be so pissed. Of course, the only way I would put up a political yard sign would be if my wife, parents or a close friend was running for office. ...

| Movie/TV Board|| re: The Secret Life of Walter Mitty - timbo on 10/9/14 at 12:09 pm|
I liked it well enough. The movie looked gorgeous, with the cinematography. The soundtrack was good. Some of the fantasy scenes were great, like the one of Wiig singing "Space Oddity". Sean Penn and Adam Scott were money in it.
Walter Mitty was really a good cool guy, he was stuck in his head too ...

I was slap-assed drunk one night and I ended up dipping Oreos in salsa. It was kind of tasty, but I wouldn't do it again.
When I was a kid, I loved Italian dressing. I once put it on scrambled eggs. I also put it on Bugles corn chips. The thought of doing both those things again makes me gag. ...

I don't think it's that horrible of an idea. Look, I saw Ghostbusters again over Labor Day weekend. The movie was funny, but it isn't a sacred text. And Ghostbusters 2 was a massive letdown to the 18-year-old version of me.
I see nothing wrong with doing a remake/reboot. Paul Feig has made some fun...
