  1. Dog or Cat Person

    Definitely dogs over cats. I just enjoy them more. It’s hard enough to get humans to like me, I don’t want to have to work for a cat’s attention. I have Italian Greyhounds and they’re just awesome animals. Totally devoted and want nothing more than to be right next to you. It’s definitely a trade off, though. Personal time and space are a thing of the past and it’s pretty much eliminated any hopes for vacations or travel. We had to put our oldest dog down a couple of weeks ago, and it’s been way more difficult than I anticipated. She was half beagle and stubborn as hell, but just one of the sweetest souls- and loved beer.
  2. Movies We've Seen Thread

    Kurosawa was one of the last great film geniuses. If you like Yojimbo, you must check out Sanjuro. His recreations of Shakespeare in feudal Japan were great also (Throne of Blood is amazing). Lucas was inspired by the Hidden Fortress when he made Star Wars. Toshiro Mifune is still one of my favorite actors. He could be a bit heavy handed, but his ability to convey emotion just by shrugging his shoulder in a certain way made me understand an actors role better than just about one else. His work in the Samurai trilogy was about as on point an actor could be. New movies just aren’t the same. Well, most of them.

  4. Are we done in FA??

    I could fill Wilkerson’s role and I’m 5’11” 150 lbs.
  5. New Unis?

    The 80’s logo resembles waaaay more tire logos than the current one
  6. New Unis?

    These are always funny and seem to give big hints at who grew up in what era. I like the throwback stuff. Personally, I really like the current unis and have always hated the look of the 80’s/early 90’s ones. That kelly green is just so bleh to me and that logo just doesn’t do it for me. I think they were the best in the 60’s and late 90’s. And I def think the current logo is great. Quick question about the helmets, though. I was under the impression they couldn’t have green helmets because of the color of the field.
  7. The safety jokes have leapt to the top of my hate list the past year. Somehow they’re always presented as if the speaker had never heard it before and was really comin up with a good one. “Watch(ing, ed) the tape” has been and will always make my teeth itch. Bad nicknames for coaches, players, owners based on their name, ie: Bowels, Maccgag, Snatchez, etc. Hate them.
  8. Maybe Mac would be happy with one of three qbs, and a trade up to two would simply cost more for they want. In our world it’s 1 & 2 and then the rest. It may be 1, 2 & 3 then the rest for the Jets. Why trade up to two if you can still get a guy at 3 that they want? That seems way more likely than “Mac is asleep at the wheel,” or the “Giants have it in for the Jets” conspiracy. Seems like we’re upset at other people for stuff we’re making up in our heads. This draft can’t come soon enough.
  9. Jets Sign Pryor

    So I guess this spells “the end” for JoJo Natson? Sad. The guy had panache
  10. 35 days until it finally happens!

    The “who’s better, Mark Sanchez, Josh Freeman, or Pat White” discussions were endless. And pointless.
  11. Jag. This all but guarantees Bowels will draft a safety/cb hybrid.
  12. FREE AGENT NEWS

    Colvin would be a nice addition.
  13. Congrats To Bill Belichick

    Only one I think. Ertz’s td was a td. He completed the catch, broke the plane, down by contact. The first questionable td should have been called back, he didn’t complete the catch. At least from my perspective. The fact that there could be more than one perspective is a problem with the rules.
  14. NAMM 2018

    Traynors were great in the 60’s/70’s. Just big, heavy Canadian built monsters that could pin your ears back. The YBA’s were sick. Once they got to switchable channels they lost their balls. The new ones have a good clean channel (similar to some of the fender Hot Rod series) like he said, but the second channel sounds a little too brittle for my taste. Another great Canadian amp company was Garnet. If you can find one, they’re not super expensive and have a unique grind when cranked. Great rock sounds. They were the amps the Guess Who used. The “American Woman” lead sound was a Garnet head. Twins are great, but yeah- lugging one around is hell. There’s just no need for 80-100 watts at a club gig.
