"... a 2012 BMW driven by Clay Matthews." Erroneous on all accounts. Everyone knows I drive a 2014.

I watched one of the most lushly shot movies I have ever seen before last night. It's marketed as a horror film, but horror buffs won't like it because it is way too artsy, slow-paced, and atmospheric. I classify it more as a supernatural/psychological thriller.

I really enjoyed it; then again, I love European arthouse films. The lead actress was unbelievably beautiful and the cinematography was ethereal and gorgeous. I am not sure how I feel about the story, but I still think it was worth watching for the beauty it evokes.

Anyhow, the film is Saint Ange (you'll probably see it marketed as House of Voices) and you can stream it in Netflix. It's unusual in that it was filmed in both English and French rather than being overdubbed. So in the English version, some of the dialog is a bit hard to understand because the accents are so thick. Highly recommended, unless you prefer nonstop MTV-style explosions, jump cuts, gore, and screeching sound effects, in which case you will be bored.

There are a lot of teams that are going to be very happy with this bracket. Most notably, the ones that aren't in the tournament.

Hola pig fuckers

 that "news article" had me off my rocker last night trying to verify that it was a hoax....

Rourke

I still think that is a weird stat that isn't necessarily all that helpful. First downs per route run or touchdowns per route run, sure. But combining those two seems arbitrary and odd to me. It's not like a first down and a touchdown are equally important.

It wouldn't bother me if running backs aren't allowed to stiff-arm, at least to the facemask, since no one else is, but they need to be able to protect their chins.

So, I wanna watch a Badger hockey game a coupla weeks ago.  Paper says it's on NBCSN...

never heard of it, and couldn't find it via the channel guide

Call 'em up and add a sports package for $7 / month.  

Before I hang up, the customer service chick says: "You've been a loyal customer for so long... blah blah blah... you're eligible for some upgrades at no cost."

So, now I have their latest shit... whole-house HD DVR, record five (5) shows at once something like 800 or 1,000 hours of HD storage... fucking wild.

Today, the wife asks me to record a show... I check, and it's on Showtime (we have ~8-10 channels of HBO, but no Showtime)

I send them an email asking if I can buy single shows, or buy programming by the day...

They email me back and say: "You're a valued customer, so try Showtime and The Movie Channel (about 10 different channels) free for a month."

Fuck.  I gotta go buy a lotto ticket.

  I guess. Both are helpful plays though, so I read it as indicative of that.

  Agreed. I think Forte is right that it's impossible to lower your shoulders without lowering your head.

  I would think that a lawyer would be a master of navigating through customer service-

   then we would literally need to tattoo "Goodwrench" down your back... 


The same schmuck does it every week with a different NFL player.. it was Julio Jones.. then it was Payton.. then it was Romo.. and now Clay.

I understand the intent, but in its raw form, you don't know if the WR is a scoring stud or just happens to be positioned beyond the marker on a lot of plays.

  have you guys ever had an iron butterfly?  I was pissed when my sister ordered me one when I was underage at a bar with her- but quickly realized that chick is a fucking genius. 

natradamus

  I always got a white russian with my red eye breakfast special.  then- usually upgraded to a iron butterfly- cause vodka- kahula and cream sometimes isn't a potent enough combination- sometimes you need to make that cream irish

... to make matters even better: we have Netflix, but you can't record that shit.

I got very used to being able to dial up "The Big Lebowski" anytime of any damn day... then, it went off of Netflix a few months ago... I've been thinking about buying it on disk

Well, tonight I'm recording it on TMC Extra...

... can I get a Woooo-fucking-Hooo?

(only problem: now I'm jones-ing for a White Russian (even though I'm pretty sure I've never had one)

  I am going to get cable through the NFL season-  I have a sweet TV- so I;m gonna have to use it w/ the HDTV signal.  I need thursday night football too- but I gave up on the twins- and don't watch much TV during the summer

SDL

The choices around here are fucking mind-numbing.  Cox Cable and Dish and DirecTV are all in competition... 

My addiction to NFL Sunday Ticket keeps me locked up with DirecTV, though

natradamus
natradamus moderator

 i'm moving into a new place- the cable- or now just internet has always been under my brothers name (I stayed in his old house after he moved).  so now I am thinking of taking advantage of the recruitng customer discount

I am moving april 1st- the building I am moving into already has a direct TV dish.  Internet is a necessity- but I was wondering whether I should just roll with netflix off my xbox- direct TV or just bundle my cable/ internet

SDL

Beats me... something like $12 / month to add Showtime

We already pay something fucking outrageous for three (3) HD hookups, about 170 HD channels, NFL Sunday Ticket, HBO and - now - some extra sports package

The wife pays the bills
