I'll also throw Anthony Ryan's Blood Song in the mix. It's the first book in (another) planned trilogy but I found it pretty entertaining. Similar to Rothfuss in it's structure....

The "YouTube" sensations also get on my nerves. And I hate how a lot of teams tend to group up for challenges the last few seasons. I'm happy to see Jet and Cord just do their own thing. Definitely want them to go far....

Very nice start indeed. I'm assuming NBC will show the men's moguls tonight? Sucks being stuck at work, not being able to watch....

Thanks to my dual citizenship I'll be cheering for both Canada and the US. Really looking forward to see how canada fares in hockey and curling!...
| Movie/TV Board|| re: Anyone see the preview for the next Amazing Race season? - Charleaux on 1/27/14 at 7:29 am|
I saw that too. Between this and Big Brother, I thought we were finally done with Rachel and her man. Guess I was wrong. The "YouTube sensations" were also really annoying in their season so this could be a miserable season to sit through!...

Can't go wrong with American Hustle or Wolf of Wall Street. Haven't seen the others....

Still have a lot to watch but right now my top 5 would probably look like this:
12 Years A Slave
Inside Llewyn Davis
Hoping to watch Her and Wolf this wee so it will probably change soon....

May be hard to mess up Mexican food but Velvet Cactus in Lakeview certainly did it last time I was there. The people of this board have led me to some awesome meals before so i put my trust in them before google users.
Thanks for the info notiger! We were looking at the menu last night and there ...

The wife's birthday is coming up and she wants to try Mizado for her birthday dinner since her friend recommended it. Has anyone been before? Anything on the menu not to miss or to completely avoid?

Hasn't been released in NOLA yet, but I'll definitely check it out when it does. Sounds similar to Lars and the Real Girl which I really enjoyed....
| Movie/TV Board|| re: Inside Llewyn Davis - Charleaux on 12/27/13 at 5:30 pm|
Saw this today and thought it was great, as one would expect from the Coen Brothers. Lots of odd characters and some really funny moments despite the overall somber tone of the movie. The music was excellent but I like the folksy stuff so it might just have been up my alley.
Anyone else seen thi...

I've been on Carnival twice and it's really not as bad as some people on here say it is. Sure, you'll see plenty of "interesting" people and families, but for the most part, you just do your own thing with the people you are with. So no reason for you not to have fun with your friends.
It might n...

I'm also a Survivor fan and I got to admit I didn't know that they were going to have an all-new cast. Pretty psyched about that and the lack of redemption island. ...

| Movie/TV Board|| re: So Dallas Buyer's Club isn't being shown in Baton Rouge? - Charleaux on 10/31/13 at 4:05 pm|
Is it having a wide release tomorrow? Possible Oscar contenders are sometimes released only in New York and Los Angeles at first and then slowly expand to more cities (like Silver Linings Playbook last year). Maybe it's one of those?...

I was living in a different country when it happened so I didn't hear about the story. I knew that the ship was going to be hijacked by the pirates but I wished I had not seen the captain leaving with the pirates in the lifeboat....

Saw it today also. Very good but I feel like the previews showed way too much. Totally agree about Hanks' acting in the final scene, it was awesome. ...
