    AC, about The Master. I wasn't prepared for my reaction to it. I will probably see it again in a few years and feel differently, because Paul Thomas Anderson, and because I had the same...

    I had read about this elsewhere and I think this is a great thing. And of course I will follow that enthusiastic reply up with a complaint. I remember back in the 90s, my favorite activity, as it...

    ^^^^Re: Inherent Vice. Just saw it, maybe ought to let it sink in but my immediate takeaway notion (without the benefit of having read the book) is that the movie can't present the allegory that...

    I sort of follow this debate and what I've observed/read tells me the subject is pretty complex and there are a lot of good ideas mixed up with bad policy. And I agree with AC's general point that if...

    When he asked me about death, I thought...wtf is up with this guy? I'd just ordered a bourbon. When suddenly the man in white pants next to me dug his butt deeper in that swivel bar chair and said,...

    I am sad beyond words about this. It really is a tragedy. Bruce did so much good for his clients and his community. Many will judge him for the vice in his conduct leading up to these charges. But I...

    A smart default position on any constitutional amendment referendum is "no." Always ask yourself, "Why is changing the Constitution in this way a good idea? Why should be do that? What is really...

    So looking forward to The Trip in Italy.

    AC you always jump down people's throats when they criticize stuff you like. You called Shady an idiot several years ago and I think that's why she left the Blab. Hey I'm just KIDDING.

    You don't have to have Irish and/or Catholic ties to get engrossed in Calvary. I am a big fan of Brendan Gleeson and esp of Chris O'Dowd, but the supporting cast of mostly Irish actors unknown to me...

    Well, the hoi polloi remark was snark on the tea nuts, not you. But you're right: Those judges are being targeted solely on the basis of their partisan membership, which is a stupid line of...

    Most of the Republican lawyers I know think Ramsey is a redneck know-nothing. That doesn't mean anything in terms of how successful his judicial strategy will turn out to be. But the bench and bar of...

    See, I never understood why ppl left over the trolling and flame wars. Those threads were almost always self-contained and easy to ignore. And sorry, you just can't have an energetic forum without...

    Anyway, used to be more fun. Or maybe I used to be more fun. This discussion is a little too meta for me, so I'll just add one more thought, or maybe it's more like a recollection. The members of...

    I'm surprised you didn't understand my post better than that. It was meant to be a little humorous. But anyway.... I miss all of it. I think I have posted enough serious discourse on this forum,...

    You know that string instrumental (muzak) version of Around the World that is played in the daylight scenes of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest? That's what I hear every time I log on here. I'm the...

    I have to say I like FB because I can connect to a wide swath of people I know and like in real time. But I wish the Blab were more alive b/c I use(d) it for a far different purpose: candid snark and...

    Several years ago a guy went to his insurance agent to file a claim for his stolen car. When he left, the agent looked out the window and the guy was driving the car he'd just reported stolen. True...

    Even if it is true, I still like Bruce. If he got caught up in some pills for sex scene, that is a disgrace. But I really got turned off today by the shitheads in the DA's office, and some in my...
