Trashy, trashy, trashy. I've never stopped there, because if I need gas, Cokes or snacks on the way to Lafayette/Lake Charles/Houston, I'll hit Port Allen first. But after all the bull shite with this a-hole owner, I have no plans to ever go there.
Seems to me that it's a throwback to the 1950s or...

My wife was in Memphis for business a few months ago and went to this place, Flight, twice in two days. A friend recommended it.

I don't think she was a huge bitch. She quit working for Ted Beneke when she was on the verge of having an affair with him. And yes, she went back to the construction company and started screwing Ted, but that was after she found out that Walter was a crystal meth kingpin.
Skyler was a little upti...

Serious question: Why do people hate Skyler White so much?
Let's not forget, Walter White chose to make crystal meth to support his family. He could have taken a cushy job with Grey Matter Technologies that had Cadillac health insurance that would have paid for his cancer treatments. Instead, be...

PJ Harvey -- The whole freaking Rid of Me album. Lyrically and how she sings on it, it seems like she's just getting over a mental breakdown.
Hole -- Gutless
Sonic Youth -- Orange Rolls, Angel's Spit. Kim Gordon just screams through the whole thing....

Not surprising. I imagine 80% of the revenues for that crappy town come from traffic tickets. ...

That's the dumbest thing I ever heard of. My God, it isn't like you were giving them $100 for a tea and gum. Shit, at my bank, all the ATM gives out is $20s....

I really like "Good Eats". It actually teaches you how to cook. That's become a rarity on TV in recent years.
I would love "Diners. Drive-Ins and Dives" if anyone else was hosting it. Replacing that douchebag Guy Fieri with Muhammad ISIS would be an upgrade. ...

[quote]You should address the sleep apnea directly and get a sleep study done.
That's what I'm thinking. Maybe it's time for the tonsils to come out?[/quote]
Ehhh. The sleep doctor I go to told me that removing tonsils doesn't always work that well and it's painful with a long recovery time....

Albertson's fried chicken is pretty good.
Really, is there such a thing as bad fried chicken? Even the batter on that frozen Swanson shite is tasty. ...

[quote]That about sums it up. Not an area many baton rougeans hit up for meals these days.[/quote]
Well, that's stupid. All of the good Vietnamese places are on Florida. You've got the lunch counter at La Morenita serving authentic Mexican for cheap and you have Thai Pepper. Lots of good eats in ...
| Food and Drink Board|| re: How does Thai Pepper on Florida not get more attention - timbo on 3/2/15 at 3:04 pm|
I'm a big fan of that place. I think they have more on the lunch buffet on Friday and Saturdays. The chicken in peanut sauce is good, good coconut soup, the Thai beef salad is excellent, I like the green papaya salad. ...

Why do I have the feeling if it was the daughter of a dentist or business executive who was involved in a fight with a sorority sister, the whole thing never would have made it to court or long been tossed out? Methinks some fine parents heard their little darling was in a fight and they saw dollar ...

When they do Green Lantern in the Justice League movie -- if Batman vs. Superman doesn't suck so bad that it kills all plans for this -- they ought to look at using John Stewart/Guy Gardner/Kyle Rayner. Just get away from Hal Jordan and that shitty movie. ...

Pearl Jam - UNO Lakefront Arena 1993. It was the first of three New Orleans shows. They played "Tremor Christ" for the first time. I think I was levitating the whole time.
Smashing Pumpkins - Lollapalooza 94 at Tad Gormley. They were showing fight scenes from "Enter the Dragon" on a screen, then...

It looked like a cheap arse video game. Too much bad CGI. I don't know if they were in a rush to get it out for a release date or their reach exceeded their grasp....

1993 - I graduated LSU, got a real job and was living on my own. I wasn't making any money, but I had no bills, other than CDs and beer.
95-96 was probably the worst. I quit my job, because I was an immature dumbass, didn't know what I wanted to do and ended up working as a waiter, before moving ...

Just noticed they're going to announce the lineup on April 1 for a April 17 show. The timing seems kind of odd and you wonder if that would keep them from getting bigger names. But I guess they don't want too much trash to show up for a free concert....
