That shady shite Loria did -- telling elected officials he needed a new stadium or else the Marlins would go out of business, when they were actually financially healthy isn't what the Yankees would do...

You can't argue with the top 3 (Dan Snyder, Jeff Loria and James Dolan). They're greedy scum-sucking a-holes who make their franchises worse. Taxpayers in Miami need to sue the shite out of Loria

You never know what you're going to get with Bob Dylan. I saw him with Paul Simon in Lafayette back in 99 and he was meh.
Then I saw him in NOLA at one of those night Jazz Fest concerts in the early 2000s and he was really great. ...

[quote]The strokes and vampire weekend at jazz fest was underwhelming as frick.[/quote]
See, I thought the Strokes were pretty good when they were at Jazz Fest a couple of years ago. But I had super low expectations. I figured they were the sort of band that was just too cool to try and put on a d...

Do you know anyone that raises it? Maybe check Craigslist for emu breeders.
That was supposed to be the next big thing in the 90s. I remember trying some emu meat and it was kind of odd -- it was poultry, but red meat. Another reason why it never caught on is I remember hearing there were all sorts...

Interpol - it was just a boring show [/quote]
Was that the show at TwiRoPa in 2004/2005? That was the single dullest show I ever went to. I think they played all the songs from their first two albums in order, with the exact...

I did a big deletion/blocking a while back because I had friended people I went to high school with. People that would constantly make ALL CAPS posts with racial slurs thrown in.
There was also this chick I knew who moved out to California, even though she didn't have a job -- but she had an infant...

The 96 movie was pretty weak. It came at a time when fans were hungry, so we ate it up and tried to convince ourselves it was good. I mean if a Doctor Who TV movie ran on Fox today and they said the Doctor was half human, people would go ape shite and break the Internet....

The Daleks can time travel.
I'm gonna cast a vote for Caves of Androzani from the original series. It was on Netflix. It's widely acclaimed to be one of the best of the original series. And it has the best cliffhanger in the show's history at the end of episode 3...

I saw it at the Louisiana International Film Festival earlier this year. Thought it was a really good tribute to a talented musician who never got his due for one reason or another. Well worth seeing. It was worth it just for all the crazy stories about Booker -- like how he told everyone he lost h...

I love to say crude things to annoy her. Stuff like announcing "I'm going to swing the brown hammer" or "I'm going to take the Browns to the Super Bowl" when I'm headed to the bathroom. She also hates the words "sammich", "tinkle" and "pee-pee", so I use them at every opportunity. ...
