  1. Bad Day for the Cut -- a 2017 film set in Ireland. Adult homebody son who still lives on the farm with his mom goes and gets revenge when someone murders mom. It held my interest in part because it didn't have the protagonist go all Rambo and turn into some Special Forces badass, but I couldn't get over the fact that Susan Lynch (who played the dish in Waking Ned Devine) played the bad guy . . . er, girl. The movie also needed subtitles so I could understand what the fuck everyone was saying in their Irish accents. I'd give it a 6 or 7 on a 1-10 scale.
  2. Several of their Mexican items are branded Trader Jose's. Italian stuff = Trader Giotto's. Asian stuff - Trader Ming's. Just one of TJ's little quirks.
  3. This has expanded from the Gun Owner's thread to the Things that Go Boom In General thread, and I have zero problems with that.
  4. Not an AZ fan and nothing against SF, but I really don't think the ball crossed the line to gain on that third down play. It was close, which I'm sure is why they let it stand, but the line to gain was actually inside the 26 and it looked the ball only got to the 26 yard line.
  5. Did you also get the screen grab of Fant pushing off right before this?
  6. Nice job of catching with your facemask, Kirk.
  7. Norco '80. It's about a bank heist in San Bernardino County back in 1980 that turned into a big running gun battle -- kinda the forerunner of the big North Hollywood shootout that happened 17 years later. I haven't really gotten started on it, but I'm encouraged by the reviews and the subject matter is of interest.
  8. I enjoyed it -- could have been better, but it wasn't a waste of an hour and a half. Jakob Dylan as an interviewer made me want to bang my head against a wall several times. Best part of it for me was hearing all the old Byrds and Buffalo Springfield tunes that I'd forgotten about. Michelle Phillips was a smoke show back then (and looks good for her age now). The fact that she wasn't a fanatic about her marriage only adds to the intrigue.
  9. Rockville is all kinds of great. I might have to change my mind.
  10. Thin Lizzy -- The Boys Are Back In Town, followed closely by Jailbreak. TBABIT gets played to death, which might be a turnoff to some, but it's a great tune. You could probably flip those two songs around and I wouldn't fight you. Southbound is a personal fave.
  11. He's singing it from the perspective of a horny young dude banging his hot girlfriend on a regular basis in the backseat of his '60 Chevy, not some pervy old man. Ain't creepy at all, IMO. Night Moves is a great song. I'm kinda partial to Mainstreet as well.
  12. Beach Boys -- For me, it's between God Only Knows or Don't Worry Baby, but California Girls and Wouldn't It Be Nice are right up there, too.
  13. Either that or Won't Get Fooled Again. The "meet the new boss, same as the old boss" line and that Daltrey scream toward the end make WGFA pretty special. My personal favorites are Bargain, Substitute, and The Kids are Alright.
  14. Message received. [*pulls out recalibrator*]
