Hudlin TV / COPPER on BBC America
« on: September 04, 2012, 09:43:53 pm »
Is anybody else watching this?  It's my new guilty pleasure for the summer..  A police procedural set in 1864 NYC, with a tortured Irish war vet for its protagonist.

He was 56 years old and is survived by his wife of twenty years, Laurene, and four children.


RIP, Mr. Jobs, you did what you loved, and made this world a little more interesting in the process.  Thank you....

Fitness / 2011 U.S Open Men's Final
« on: September 12, 2011, 04:32:28 pm »
Is anybody watching this right now?  Nadal is hanging on for dear life, but both players are gettin' it IN...

I haven't followed men's tennis closely since Sampras basically handed the keys to Federer... but I'm starting to think Djokovic is not letting go of the top spot for a while....


Great Stuff!

Hudlin TV / The Family Crews
« on: March 13, 2010, 09:52:17 am »
Anybody watching this?  I just discovered it last week, and after watching back-to-back eps I was hooked.... 

Interesting premise as Mr. Crews is now the at-home Dad in between gigs, while his wife starts back to work after raising the five kids to primary school age - oh and it looks like they're going to be grandparents sooner rather than later!
This might be my new guilty pleasure on Sunday nights..

General Discussion / Random thoughts on Tallahassee?
« on: December 01, 2009, 05:22:02 pm »
I'm heading down this month for a job interview, and was just wondering what to expect.  Never been that far into the panhandle, although I've got folks on the east coast of FL.  

"It's a college town in the heart of Southern Georgia"  is what one of the potential interviewers (a former Yankee) told me during the phone interview.  Other than that I have no idea what to expect.

IIRC, some folks here are FAMU grads  - any random thoughts about the place would be helpful, gang.   ;D

Sports Talk / I just heard Usain Bolt will be the next Flash...
« on: August 21, 2009, 10:22:04 am »
Seriously.




19.19 in the 200m...    :o
9.58 in the 100m...       :o
They're going to have to start giving the other guys 25m head-starts if this keeps up.

Any shot of either season coming to DVD now?   :'(

Latest Flicks / Any particular movies that anyone let slip away this summer?
« on: September 16, 2008, 01:08:52 pm »
In all of the comic-book hype this summer, I've realized I've missed or am missing opportunities to check out a really good selection of non-traditional summer flicks this year.

I missed Mongul - which I heard really good things about.

Have yet to see Traitor, which snuck by most of the big movie houses in town.

Completely forgot about The Family that Preys, which I'm hearing good buzz on...

BUT, I am clearing my calendar for Miracle at Santa Ana on the 26th. 


Anything I've missed this season, that I should look for on Netflix soon?

Vox Populi / Thanks, Mr. Gibson....
« on: September 12, 2008, 10:41:08 am »
I can't believe we killed the Palin thread before her first real interview.  Did this change anyone's opinion about her abilty (or lack thereof) to entertain the second-highest post in the land?


It felt like a bad job interview, at times.

Vox Populi / Keith Olbermann's response to the Ferraro "Disaster"
« on: March 17, 2008, 01:00:13 pm »
I'm surprised no one's posted this here yet... Or maybe I didn't search hard enough.

Anybody pick this up yet?  I didn't realize it was out until reading in ths weeks Comic Shop Newsarama.  I'm probably going to grab it via Unbox tonite, but was just curious.

Other Comics / Walking Dead #46
« on: February 15, 2008, 10:58:35 pm »
No spoilers....


I'm done with this book.   Fonz just strapped on his skis, with this one.

Sports Talk / Australian Open
« on: January 24, 2008, 04:19:37 pm »
Anybody following this one?  Blake was dispatched in 3 straight sets by Federer, but the talk of the town is this new turk Tsonga!   Slapped Nadal around like he stole something, and he's been playing consistently, so I expect Federer to be in trouble..

Vox Populi / Universal Health Care
« on: January 23, 2008, 08:51:43 am »
Can anyone tell me why Mrs. Clinton's Universal Health Care package is a more viable option than Obama's expanded health care plan for young adults?

Personally, I think Kusinich's (sp?) plan to adopt the medicare structure was the most adaptable, but.. hey...I'm one of the little people, here..
