  1. 2018 MLB season thread

    Pummeled. Oh well...it's only one game...only one game...only one game.
  2. And this. Although I rank "Walking Into Clarksdale" slightly above mediocre. 😏
  3. 2018 MLB season thread

    Boston at Angels for a three game series in which we should find out a little more about each team and how real they are in relation to their hot starts. David Price vs. Shohei Ohtani tonight.
  4. Never heard or read any inkling of John Paul Jones being asked to join the "Clarksdale" sessions.

    Life is much easier when you don't have to worry about the Coachella Music Festival.
  6. The Rest in Peace Thread

    Semper Fi, Gunny. https://townhall.com/columnists/larryprovost/2018/04/17/remembering-r-lee-ermey-n2471535
  7. For what it's worth...the following was on the Led Zeppelin Newsfeed and Ramble On Radio podcast: http://ledzepnews.com/2017/03/18/jimmy-pages-active-discussions-may-led-zeppelins-50th-anniversary/ Jimmy Page’s ‘active discussions’ may be about Led Zeppelin's 50th anniversary The “active discussions” that Jimmy Page is currently involved in may be about activity surrounding Led Zeppelin’s fiftieth anniversary, Led Zeppelin podcast Ramble On Radio said in its latest episode. Last week we reported that Page has been in “active discussions” to perform as part of the Desert Trip festival in 2018. However, Ramble On Radio host Brian Gardiner said in his podcast that the “Oldchella” rumour is a euphemism, and instead the rumour is about possible future Led Zeppelin activity planned for 2018. The original rumour from last week came from a respected Led Zeppelin fan who does seem to have inside knowledge of the band’s activity. What’s not clear right now is what the rumoured discussions are about. They could be about a one-off show, a series of shows, or even the release of new material. The only thing we know for sure is that it’s still early days.
  8. Since the last thread was purged, I am resurrecting it for all of us 'foodies'. Post a description and/or photo of what you are eating now or what was your most recent meal. Since breakfast kicks off the day, I'll begin this thread with my breakfast that I'm about to tuck into: eggs sunny side up, bacon, French toast, orange juice.
  9. Why do we tolerate stealing?

    If you weren't blind as well as unable to comprehend simple English, you wouldn't be asking that question. I can't speak for the others but I was not attacking her, I was disagreeing with her position that YouTube clips equalled stealing. Whether or not someone is a progressive or not has no bearing to me. I don't care about political labels...conservative, liberal, progressive, libertarian, authoritarian...it matters to me not where a person is on the political stripe, only their actions and words.
  10. Why do we tolerate stealing?

    Since this thread was started by a progressive you are talking bollocks as usual.
  11. I've Been Going to the...MOOOOvies

    Excellent. Also just found out it was written by Tony Gilroy, who made "Michael Clayton" and "Duplicity" and wrote the Bourne movies.

    I know, right...ain't he a riot?
  13. I've Been Going to the...MOOOOvies

    I love the month of April. Winter is over and flowers bloom and the annual Noir City Festival hits town. 10 consecutive nights of Film Noir. Opening night Friday the 13th. Saturday the 14th with James Ellroy in person dropping F-bombs and reminiscing about jerking off to Jean Simmons in "Spartacus". Sunday the 15th.
  14. Marijuana legalization

    I've noticed since the legalization of marijuana that the pan-handlers ask for pot more than they ask for money. There is a young Scandinavian couple I've seen habitually in front of the Hollywood McDonald's. Bum Bjorn's sign says "Addicted to Bad Bitches and Weed."
  15. 2018 MLB season thread

    Yeah, we're not even out of April yet.

    Speaking of Aunt Flo, this is the latest rage among my lady friends.
  17. What Are You Reading?

    Sort of a sequel to his first memoir "Waging Heavy Peace", this one more about the cars and dogs in his life.
  18. 2018 MLB season thread

    I was hoping to see Ohtani pitch yesterday but the typical Kansas Shitty weather postponed the game. Still too early to properly evaluate Shohei Ohtani and know whether he can keep this up for a whole season. But, the remarkable thing about him is not that he is (so far) excelling at pitching and hitting. No, what is amazing is that nobody stopped him and made him focus on one or the other. There are plenty of players, past and present, that could have been two-way players. But the system in place in American baseball never allowed that to happen. They force players early on into a "pitcher or everyday player?" choice.
  19. 2017 NHL season

    I told y'all not to pick the Kings. Their playoff privileges are about to expire. Rick, I hope you didn't put money on them?
  20. I've Been Going to the...MOOOOvies

    So how was it? Worth spending money to see? I loved Jon Hamm in "Mad Men" but his movie roles have been uneven. This one looks interesting and I also enjoy Rosamunde Pilke, so I am hopeful.

    Ramble on, son...
  22. Random Thoughts v.3

    My response to IpMan was for the first part of his post, not the Syria part. I've already discussed at length my position on U.S. intervention and don't feel like rehashing it over and over. In short, there is no one-size fits all panacea. Each situation is different. Some I feel require our help. Others are best left for sovereign nations to figure out for themselves. I do know that Syria is one of those countries that has been a mess since I can remember. Go back and look at the news in the 1970s. Syria was on the front page then, too. The more things change the more they stay the same in some places. The barbaric tribalism in the Middle East will always be a stumbling block to peace in the region.
