    *** Official THE HANGOVER Discussion Thread

    It was the Conan Obrien show that introduced me to him. I tried to find a video clip of one of this performances on the show, but all I could find was this audio clip: http://m1.cdn.spikedhumor.com/1/123754_1142758_1.flv

    *** Official STAR TREK (2009) Discussion Thread

    I've been reading lots and lots of reviews over the last few days in part because it's been interesting to hear what people think now about the preceeding Star Trek films and tv shows. The article that I just read had some comments that really surprised me because I thought to myself, "that's...

    didn't know R. Lee Ermey felt this negative about working with director David Fincher

    That's along the lines of what Martin Sheen said in one of the extras on the Wall Street DVD. I don't remember his exact words, but he wanted sometimes to improvise. Oliver Stone didn't want that because what was in the script was in a sense the finished product in that the script was 100% what...

    Deadpool

    Based on my response to this thread, my answer would be "not familiar in the slightest". When I saw the title of this thread, I assumed it was referring to the 1988 Clint Eastwood movie

    didn't know R. Lee Ermey felt this negative about working with director David Fincher

    His comments (about the process of working with directors) in the latter half of this second interview might shed some light on why he said what he said in that preceeding quote. Bloody Disgusting - Interview Texas Chainsaw Massacre Prequel: Star R. Lee Ermey

    Family Guy Season Seven

    I wasn't sure where to put this. Since I now associate Adam West more with Family Guy than with Batman, I thought the Family Guy fans would enjoy this comedic clip. It's only related to Family Guy in that Adam West is in this; but the humor in the clip immediately makes me think of the Mayor...

    Are tanning salons safer than they used to be?

    To the op: In addition, this is another excellent reason to protect your skin. I don't know if the style of summer clothes in other states is similar to that in Arizona. But while the tanned skin from low cut or sleeveless tops may look sexy on the 20 and 30-somethings, you can observe the...

    when a title is on xbox AND PS2, is xbox version always better ?

    I made a list of games that I'm interested in, and most of them were released on the xbox AND the PS2. When I've compared photos (at gamespot) of the xbox and PS2 versions of a game, it usually seems like the xbox version has graphics that look a little better. But I wasn't sure if this is...

    is xbox (not 360) durable/reliable enough to safely purchase as refurbished

    I was weighing whether it'd be a mistake to buy a refurbished xbox system. Gamestop appears to be selling them for around $ 50, and Hollywood Video's Game Crazy has a special right now where for $ 60 you get a refurbished system and three used games. I'm aware that a large percentage of the...

    XBOX 360 Info/Advice

    I spent some time reading today about the jasper XBOX 360. Here's what will identify it as a jasper: "The box has a window where you can actually see the voltage the system uses. If it states it's 12.1 then that is the latest chip. Look for a 150W power supply, not the 175W Falcon one...

    Family Guy Season Seven

    Another thing that bothers me about Family Guy this year is the way that Mila Kunis's talent is being wasted. I realize that Meg has always been the most minor character in the family. But Mila's voice is perfect for Meg, so I figured that once Mila joined the cast this would be the perfect...

    Family Guy Season Seven

    I completely agree. This episode was as much of a letdown and waste of time and energy (of the viewers, writers, and creators) as the recent Family Guy episode with the three interminable minutes of Conway Twitty. Here we have this incredible opportunity where the whole cast of STNG was...

    Iron Man colors on HTF, Neato!

    A thumbs down for me, too. The "iron man" colors make the site hard to read. I was about to give up reading this site for a week or two until someone mentioned the "skin chooser" feature as I was totally unaware of that.

    Capital One is driving me crazy!!!

    I'm just brainstorming here, but I wonder if it would help any if you contacted Capital One's fraud department (and fax to them a written/typed statement from the doctor's office). I also wonder if (assuming this is possible) it would help matters any to file a report with the police (dunno...

    Capital One is driving me crazy!!!

    I don't want to be adding to your worries, but what has me feeling worried for you is that, even if you were to go ahead and pay this amount to get the collection department off your back, there is I believe a very real and very strong chance that Capital One is at this very moment reporting you...

    Capital One is driving me crazy!!!

    Although a credit report can be ordered for free from annualcreditreport.com, my personal preference is for paying the fee and ordering the report directly from the credit reporting agency. Why ?

    A couple of questions: 1) Please don't take any offense. Could you clarify this ? "in April of this year. We basically closed the account and cut up the card" Did you contact Capital One (by phone ? by mail ?) and specifically request for the account to be closed ? This incident is an...
