re: Spielberg: "There Will be a time when Superhero movie go the way of the Western" - StringedInstruments on 9/2/15 at 5:11 pm
I don't know if Spielberg is necessarily hating on just superhero movies. But he's absolutely right about movie genres (and really, all art) being cyclical. One day people won't really give a shite about superhero movies. Could be a few decades from now, but it'll happen....

re: What would you have done if you had a low GPA in Physics - StringedInstruments on 9/2/15 at 7:17 am
I had less than a 3.0 for my undergraduate degree, and I got some experience under my belt and got one of the highest scores on the GRE in the country. That helped me get into graduate school on fellowship. GPA doesn't matter that much. You may not be able to land a [i]great[/i] job coming out o...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

Just a success story comment - It's pretty amazing how much content there is on my television without the $80/month going to DirecTV. Sure, I pay $60/month to Charter for high speed internet, but after getting an Amazon Fire Stick yesterday, I'm pretty much going to have limitless content to wat...

re: Netflix ending deal with Epix films - but promises more Adam Sandler! - StringedInstruments on 9/1/15 at 5:10 pm

re: Can you Roast a Boston Butt in a crockpot? - StringedInstruments on 8/31/15 at 4:10 pm
My preferred way to cook pork while at home. A nice trick if you want carnitas is to shred the pork after it's finished. Lay it out on a baking sheet and splash a bunch of the leftover juice/fat over it all. Then pop it until a broiler until it just begins to brown. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Would BLM folks support Carson? - StringedInstruments on 8/31/15 at 4:08 pm
[quote] That may be the ostensible reason for BLM's existence. In my opinion, and doubtlessly that of many others, BLM is nothing more than an obscene racket which exists to shirk all responsibility for the black community's own failings by blaming everything on the police and white people. They ar...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Would BLM folks support Carson? - StringedInstruments on 8/31/15 at 3:53 pm
Does Carson support their cause? Why would or should they support him? BLM isn't about supporting black people. It's about challenging the "white patriarchy" that empowers institutions to engage in racist actions that destroy the lives of black people. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (3)

Serious advice - You've been eating gumbo in Louisiana the past four years? You need to ask a different question. You need to ask "How can I make a really rich and delicious stock?" Gumbo is good if you use bought chicken stock from the grocery store. It tastes like home if you make ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
