    The saddest movie I have ever seen

    I found Grave of the Fireflies to be an exceptionally well crafted film but it really didn't hit me emotionally. It was bleak and harrowing but I just couldn't bridge the gap to connect with the characters. However, when I watched Crazy/Beautiful, I totally connected with Kirsten Dunst's...

    NFL 2012 Season Discussion Thread

    I'll just be happy if Ray Lewis ends his career with a loss. Then again, win or lose, I'm sure he'll run around the field, looking for every camera he can find to do his little fake crying act.

    Books you've read in 2009

    I just finished up reading Pygmy by Chuck Palahniuk. I really didn't expect to finish it. There were times at the beginning of the book that it was almost incomprehensible but as I stuck with it, the style began to flow a little better. Not a typical Palahniuk ending, which in this case I...

    Do you wear denim? George Will thinks you are a immature slob

    I disagree. The reception part of a wedding should be considered informal, if you're not part of the wedding party. I mean, once all the drinking and dancing starts up, the shirts get untucked, the ties fly off, any hair that was specifically styled for the wedding is ruined...mostly it ends up...

    It's freakin' COLD man!

    It's sitting at -17 F right now (-32 w/c). It's supposed to bottom out at about -24 F (-40ish w/c) around 6 a.m., right at the time that I'm getting done with work. How did those commercials go? It's Brisk, baby! Bruce

    For Fans Of Olivia Newton-John

    My earliest memories of Olivia Newton-John was from Two of a Kind. Ok, crappy movie but man, what a looker. She's still beautiful and her singing ability is top-shelf. Bruce

    Regarding the "tax stimulus" refund....

    Is this information taken from the IRS website? Perhaps I read it wrong, but the informational notice that the IRS sent out explaining the upcoming rebate seemed to say that a person making between $3000-$35,000 adjusted gross income would scale up from $300 to $600 and over $35,000 would get...

    Was it me or was the monsters roar really subdued compared to the trailer? In the trailer, when the monster roared, buildings would shake, lights would dim and everything seemed to come to a stand-still. It was quite intense and gave great hints at the enormity of the, it was...

    2007-2008 NFL season discussion thread

    I just wonder when the NFL is going to do something about the horrendous officiating that occurs week in and week out during every game. It's one thing if a guy is out of position and has to kind of guess at what happened. But when an official is exactly where he needs to be on the play, is 10...

    "No turns ..."

    In some cities around here, there are signs posted prohibiting turns between a designated time to cut down on cruising. In Appleton, for example, people will cruise up College Avenue, turn left right before Lawrence University and swing around the block so they can cruise back down College. You...

    Anyone else being harrassed by AFNI Collections agency?

    I had a bogus negative on my credit report from some collection agency that I didn't recognize. I filed a dispute with Experian and the negative was removed from my report. Whether the company withdrew the neg or Experian decided in my favor, I don't really know. I was just notified that the...

    A question for all the golfers out there about balls ...

    No. However, different brands of golf balls certainly feel different for every player. I remember when I first started out playing, I bought whatever was cheap and available, which happened to be Ultra's. Since I had no experience, I thought these were fine and continued to use them until the...

    You can tell what God thinks of money by who He gives it to - case study no. 1

    So true. I generally hit the ball pretty solidly but every once in awhile, I'll skin one or shank one or chunk one and it seems like I just took the same exact swing that I've taken 20 (or 200 or 2000) other times which produced solid hits. It's damn maddening. However, as any golfer will...
