It's a great movie. The acting is top notch. It's creepy as hell. Plus, they nail the whole 70s vibe...

We usually hit Orion, Mutts and Spanish Town.
Orion is OK, we watch it downtown. They've got stuff that kids like -- bands, dance teams, etc.
Mutts is very family friendly -- especially if your kids like dogs. It's around North Boulevard.
Spanish Town is the biggest parade. Some of the flo...

A few years ago, someone sent me a self-published book on how to select Russian women for marriage. (I work in the news media and he wanted coverage) That book has provided hours of entertainment for me, my wife and our friends. It's just awful -- it's got creep shots of Russian women on the streets...

I think if you're in one of those deals, your odds of getting killed have to be pretty high. Either your husband will beat you to death after you burn the pot roast or your wife will invite "cousin Sergi" to stay with you and you'll end up getting offed.
The whole thing seems real creepy....

I'm a Saints fan, but I don't hate the Seahawks. Yeah, they knocked the Saints out the playoffs twice, but they were just the better team. I really only dislike the Falcons and the Cowboys.
And I'm a huge LSU fan, but I don't hate Pete Carroll for some reason.
I'm pulling for the Seahawks beca...

I used to be obsessed with The Simpsons, but I stopped watching it 10 or so years ago because it just fell off so much. I may cherry pick and watch the better later episodes.
Gave up on Homeland midway through the second season. Too much other stuff was going on and it was kind of hard to watch....

I really wish they would take on a superhero movie. At one point, there were rumors they would direct the Justice League movie. I think that would be a good move for them. Lord knows they could handle the action and the big special effects....

Bound was pretty good.
The Matrix was awesome and groundbreaking.
The Matrix sequels sucked donkey ass.
Speed Racer was a giant waste of money.
Cloud Atlas was nuts and too long, but entertaining.
I don't care what kind of reviews this movie gets, I'm gonna get lifted and watch it when it hi...
| O-T Lounge|| re: When is St Paddy parade in BR? - timbo on 1/28/15 at 3:55 pm|
We gripe about that every year. I feel sorry for people who live way out in South Baton Rouge. Imagine how early you have to wake up if you're going to make that parade -- and you would have to get up even earlier if you're bringing kids to it.
That early start means I'm down for the count by afte...

I think I went to the Maesone Noodle House once and it was quite good. Now, I'm basing this off Google, because I wasn't driving and I had a horrible hangover. A degenerate friend gave directions to the place that were "It's between that drive through daiquiri place and the liquor store."...
