re: CPM's Achilles' heel - leaving pitchers in too long - Cold Cous Cous
[quote]CPM's Achilles' heel - leaving pitchers in too long[/quote] Maybe in general, but last night we lost because he pulled a pitcher too quickly. If his #1 goal was to win last night's game he would've left Gilbert in for another couple of innings. Instead he pulled him to give other guys a cha...

re: This Job Market Stinks - Cold Cous Cous
Be sure your resume isn't underselling your abilities and the full scope of your experience at your last job. For all the warnings you hear about not lying on your resume, I have had to work with two close relatives whose resumes made them look much less qualified than they actually were. Some peopl...

Thank you for the hissy fit.

re: Light Rail Dowtown NOLA to MSY Pros and Cons - Cold Cous Cous
I don't understand why they don't encourage more flights to the Lakefront airport. Way more convenient to downtown. Yes I realize that it can't handle big planes but a lot of these cheap tourist-oriented airlines just operate puddle jumpers anyway. ...

re: Learning to play on a crappy guitar - Cold Cous Cous
Buying crappy guitars makes no sense these days. There are very solid, giggable instruments available in the $200-300 range, especially used. And if you buy used you can probably get 90% of your money back if you decide it's not for you. Whereas instruments in the $100 range are toys or worse, and...

re: Best way to payoff mortgage early? - Cold Cous Cous
[quote]Would it be best to invest $X per month into a decent mutual fund for the next 6-10 years and then use that to pay off the mortgage or would it be best to put the same $X towards principle every month? [/quote] Assuming I have to choose from these two options, A is clearly better than B beca...

re: Ryan Adams at Orpheum on 3/14 - Cold Cous Cous
His Jazz Fest set was bizarre. He had 30 minutes of material prepared for a 45 minute set. He was stalling and it turned extremely awkward. I'm like, dude, you release an album every 4 months. You have 800 songs to choose from. Just sing one. ...
