re: SNL is a Complete Shitshow - Ace Midnight
[quote]Gilda Radner [/quote] Gilda was also great. Jane was great in her own way, but she functioned more as a straight woman for the NRFPTP - and heaven knows they needed one. Morris could be a decent straight man at times, but they largely wasted him. The NRFPTP was one of the most talente...

re: Are Bose headphones worth it? - Ace Midnight
You're talking the QC35 with ANC? The only real competitor is the Sony which usually runs a little more. If you want Bluetooth cans with ANC, then those are your two choices and $300 to $350 is your budget....

re: SNL is a Complete Shitshow - Ace Midnight
[quote]But seriously, created/wrote Mean Girls, 30 Rock, years of funny SNL, Kimmy Schimdt. I'd say she's pretty funny.[/quote] You're not really making a strong case. Fey was kind of funny as Palin. That's it. And she's probably the funniest girl on SNL since JLD and Jan Hooks. :lettha...

re: Meryl Streep, again? - Ace Midnight
She's both fantastic and fantastically overrated by the Academy. Basically nominated for 1/2 the years of the 80s and 90s for best actress: Sophie's Choice (which she won)? Yeah. No brainer. Silkwood, Postcards, [i]maybe[/i] Bridges and The French Lieutenant's Woman - that was good stuf...

re: Do you think leading actors get upset when co Star is up for best supporting role? - Ace Midnight
[quote]He handled it well, but everyone in Sideways was nominated for an Oscar except for Paul Giamatti.[/quote] One of the things that makes the Oscars laughable - honestly, I can see how folks like what others brought to the movie, but either: 1. Giamatti gave the best performance in the fil...

re: Do you think leading actors get upset when co Star is up for best supporting role? - Ace Midnight
On a somewhat related note - I always thought that Maggie Smith and Michael Caine's vignette in [i]California Suite[/i] captured that range of vacillating emotions extremely well. It's funny, sad, touching, and endearing all at the same time, with their neuroses and snippy banter. Of course, Mag...

[quote]Damn, the chihuahuas had numbers [/quote] You know, Alexander reportedly said, "An army of lions, led by a lamb, will be defeated by an army of lambs, led by a lion" - and since we know that whoever the leader of the chatter of chihuahuas was a little badass, me must also assume that th...

re: Poll: More Americans credit Obama than Trump for economy - Ace Midnight
So, that means, it's probably really 60% Trump? Still too low. Obama, like him or not, was a lodestone around the neck of the economy - impossible for that not to be true, when it's an anti-business, anti-growth, regulation heavy government....

re: A Cajun war hero died - Ace Midnight
93 is a good run, though. RIP and Godspeed, soldier. For some folks who may not know (because, frankly, the USMC's PR machine is impressively effective), the Army was involved in many famous PTO battles outside of the Philippines. The 132nd, for example, was one of the very first Army units...

re: Question about a settlement check - Ace Midnight
[quote]The check is for 12 grand... I assume this is before they take out all their fees, etc.?[/quote] If that's what you agreed to settle for, then, yeah - that's the "gross" settlement. That should include your general and special damages. They will deduct their fee and any outstanding expen...

re: Question about a settlement check - Ace Midnight
[quote]So you’re saying that they still might deduct more for medical fees, or has that already been done? [/quote] If they're calling you to tell you to come get the check, it's highly likely they've resolved everything and you've been told everything (including your final number). They do this...

re: Mike Detillier - Your MVPs out of LSU’s group of early signees? From Dandy's this morning - Ace Midnight
[quote]Anyway, the score is what it is, but that game was a lot closer than it would seem if you were just looking at the final score. [/quote] I remember that game - it was as close a 21-point loss as you're ever going to see - and in fact, we looked like we were going to roll them until the Cop...

[quote]If Cotton becomes a contributor along with Moore, then that D-line is gonna be even better than I think it will. [/quote] A dominating D-line will make Aranda's very good defense an elite one - perhaps this year, but 2020 for sure. An elite defense makes the O experiment at least a pote...
