Watkins - All for the Union, Elisha Hunt Rhodes - Shelby Foote's Trilogy - Anything by Bruce Catton WWI: - All Quiet on the Western Front, Erich Maria Remarque - The Great War and Modern Memory, Pa...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Is listening to Aranda something we should be doing? - Htowntiger90 on 1/26/21 at 4:13 pm
Coaches that have worked together talk all the time & trade advice back and forth. It's not that big of a deal. Hell, O even talks to Kiffin every week except when we play them. I'm sure Aranda wants success for guys that coached with him. If Jones does well here, Aranda will be happy for him,...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: What does this mean for Corey Raymond? - Htowntiger90 on 1/25/21 at 6:04 pm
[quote]Was listening to Mascona saying Corey does want to be a DC[/quote] This. Maybe he's good making $500k a year and coaching DB's. Head coaches have shaky tenures everywhere except a few places. Then again, Muschamp has pocketed like $22M NOT to coach so there is that. "He got that ambi...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

Janis Joplin's Birthday - Htowntiger90 on 1/19/21 at 4:14 pm
Just giving a shout out to Janis Joplin on her birthday. I still remember my dad playing the "Pearl" album when I was younger, and me being wowed by her voice. I knew "Bobby McGee" was a Kris Kristofferson song. Did not know he wrote it in Louisiana, in his days flying helicopters to offshore o...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (3)
re: The Things They Carried, good book? - Htowntiger90 on 1/18/21 at 9:46 am
Very good book. I heard O'Brien speak at an event at the WWII museum. He dropped enough anecdotes from his own story to tell you much of it is based on real events. A Rumor of War is very good also. And Matterhorn is a good novel if you're looking for fiction based on the Vietnam War....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Picked up Undaunted Courage for my b-day - Htowntiger90 on 1/11/21 at 10:44 am
Read it back in the 90s. Very good book. Not sure why they left out mention of Clark on the cover. Possibly b/c Lewis was leader of the expedition and book covers only have room for so many words to catch reader attention. Jefferson likely got the cover mention for his role in the Louisiana Pu...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Do you speed up audio books - Htowntiger90 on 1/11/21 at 10:35 am
Yes - working my way through Rick Atkinson's The Day of Battle. Speeding it up just a little to 1.1x. I tried 1.2 and it was a little too fast. I'm sure it depends on the narrator....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: President's - Htowntiger90 on 1/6/21 at 1:52 pm
McCullough's biography of Truman is my favorite presidential bio so far. His biography of Adams is also very good. I just got Chernow's book on Grant. Not sure when I'll get to it, but it's on the shelf!...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Glen Logan Returning! - Htowntiger90 on 1/4/21 at 2:00 pm
Great news for our depth next year. It would be good for him to lose some weight. I thought he lost something playing heavier this past season. Not sure if it was explosiveness, or quickness at not getting his pad level into position in time, but there were plenty of plays where it looked like ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Winston Churchill Biography. - Htowntiger90 on 1/4/21 at 1:43 pm
William Manchester's first two volumes of The Last Lion are good, if you want something very thorough and long. Definitely not dry - Manchester was a great writer, but you have to like his style, and be ready for some vocab lessons. He also covers a lot of British history and episodes/characters y...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Any other fans of Easton Press? - Htowntiger90 on 12/30/20 at 8:30 am
I have a 9 volume set of leather bound Civil War books from them. Bought them in the 90s. Bruce Catton books in dark blue, Shelby Foote's trilogy in red, Douglas Southall Freeman's books on Lee's Lieutenants in Gray. Very nice display set....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
