re: Anyone seen any good camera/eclipse apps or mods? - Tigris
[quote]Just enjoy it in the moment. NASA has better pics than you will ever hope to achieve, so just download those.[/quote] I mostly agree with this. But I am going to be using a good spotting scope with a solar filter to watch the eclipse. And I ordered a mount to attach my phone to the scope...

re: True Detective be Breaking Bad? - Tigris
[quote]It could easily be the best single season of television ever. I disagree. It did not end well enough to justify that.[/quote] I just watched it 2 times while on a very long trip, and I'll agree. It was brilliant as hell up to the ending, and then finished with something of a thud....

re: The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai - Tigris
[quote]And probably my favorite Lithgow role of all time.[/quote] He was fantastic. "Laugh while you can monkey-boy!" is a line I still pull out at times. Dr. Lizardo - name taken from Leo Szilard - a Hungarian physicist and the first to see that a nuclear chain reaction was possible. I was ...

re: Name a popular book that you've disliked or gave up on - Tigris
I liked James Lee Burke's early books, they are very good. But the preaching you mentioned increasingly worked it's way into his novels. And he seemed to run out of ideas, eventually he just got stale and I'd had enough....

re: Himalayan Salt Rock. Anyone use one? - Tigris
Anyone who buys a product with "Himalayan" in the name is a sucker. For the same reason that people who bought crystals for mystical reasons were suckers. My uncle bought some stupid Himalayan berry juice for crazy prices. His cancer still killed him. I don't blame him, it was his money to waste...

re: Infinite Jest - Tigris
[quote]I'm wondering how long it took everyone to make it through the entire 1000 pages...and your thoughts afterwards.[/quote] Heh - it took a few months and was my most difficult read that I've finished (I've tried Gravity's Rainbow twice and have given up twice). And it was often tedious. An...

re: SciFi / Fantasy suggestions - Tigris
[quote]Lucifer's Hammer My dad read this book when I was a kid. I need to pick it up. [/quote] I got this on audiobook a few months ago because it was really cheap and I've been on a SciFi kick for a while. Honestly, I thought it was pretty bad and I gave up on it after a few chapters. The...

re: Name Your Top 10 Most Influential Books - Tigris
[quote]The Moon is a Harsh Mistress[/quote] Yeah, that's one of mine. I read it when I was pretty young and Heinlein's take on politics really hit home. Much more influential to me than Atlas Shrugged which I read when older. I'll add: Slaughterhouse Five - Vonnegut and I differ a lot pol...

re: The Big Short - Tigris
Surprisingly good movie. I loved the book and the topic; and cringed when I saw the movie coming out with a big name cast. But the movie was much better than expected. Yeah, it did stupid shite occasionally like having them go out and shoot machine guns just to add some "action"; but it mostly stu...

re: Who was the most evil individual in Breaking Bad? - Tigris
[quote]Lydia[/quote] Yeah, I hated her way more than Skyler or Marie. Just a terrible, terrible person. Probably not the most evil but she helped evil flourish, no surprise she was German. Best character - Mike. When Walt killed him it bothered me much more than killing Hank who really wa...
