re: PMAC Concerts - BrockLanders
[quote]The New Orleans Arena opening in 1999 was huge factor in bands skipping Baton Rouge & going to the bigger market in NOLA. [/quote] That's not really accurate. Baton Rouge started to get bypassed around 1988. I'd say 1987, but Boston and U2 played that year (and skipped New Orleans like us...

re: Underrated Culinary towns/cities - BrockLanders

re: Medical residency spinoff. Rank the specialties - BrockLanders
[quote]There are entire careers in pathology that rarely or never use a microscope. Pathologists manage laboratories and blood banking as well.[/quote] The only one I ever knew did manage a blood bank, and she was a very busy human being. She would also have to be on call to answer questions abou...

re: What is the best meal you have ever eaten in your life? - BrockLanders
One of my favorites was takeaway from Fortnum & Mason in London, where I took the grub to nearby Green Park and rented a park deck chair and just enjoyed it all. Got a totally excellent roast turkey sammich and a beautiful package of smoked salmon that I decided to crudely eat with my bare hands...

re: Lets talk about Billy Joel's best album - Nylon Curtain - BrockLanders
Sorry, but Songs In The Attic is where it's at. If you want to exclude a live album, go ahead, but that record is the truest representation of Billy Joel (and his great band). ...

re: Recommendations on exterior home painting...whats the going rate? - BrockLanders
I think you sort of have it backwards. The painting part is considerably less tedious than the prep work - if the prep work is done properly. That's the part where I would be looking to hire someone. ...

re: Man vs. German Shepherd - Fight to the death - Who wins? - BrockLanders
[quote]There's only one breed of dog I would be worried about. Pit bulls. Sons of bitches are mean. [/quote] If I were you, I would add the Neapolitan Mastiff to the list. The one I met was a show dog, so he was 100% calm, but that animal was like a small lion. And I always remember the owner...

[quote]If Alleva hired Geno, would all be forgiven?[/quote] Even for those who don't view football as their #1 sport, I still don't think he would be totally forgiven...but at least possibly heading towards the path of the righteous. :devil:...

re: Switching to vegetarian diet - BrockLanders
I'm probably never going to be 100% switched over, but I can at least tell you that half of what I eat is either vegan or vegetarian, and I have felt better in these last few years. Red meat is pretty infrequent for me...maybe twice a month. For specific stuff to eat, Gardein makes several good...

re: Has LSU men's basketball ever played a game as the No. 1 team in the NCAA? - BrockLanders
I think the '81 team was the #1 overall seed in the whole tournament, though I'm not sure how to verify that. They did have the best record in the nation, and were the best team going into the Final Four, but we all know what happened after that. :angry:...

re: Do you care if your chicken was humanely raised? - BrockLanders
Gigantic yes. Even if you're only interested in eating eggs, it's a big difference all around. Don't be fooled by the "free range" phrase, because it's sickeningly misleading. Chickens that truly lived outside aren't available everywhere, but it's worth the trouble....

re: Anyone see 'Manchester by the Sea' yet? - BrockLanders
[quote]The music as mentioned, while unusual was also interesting. [/quote] Excellent movie, but I thought the music was so heavy-handed that it was downright distracting. It just didn't even need to be there at all in several scenes. ...
