NFL predix: Brady Bunch means points; plus steroids in Cooperstown? (w/ poll), Heat beat semi-Spurs, Chris Bosh's space travel (w/ vid), Powerball, Angus T. Jones & more

1aa1homeland[1) It is FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 30. Big week for UM basketball. Congrats to Jim Larranaga's Canes men and Katie Meier's women for home wins over ranked opponents Michigan State and Penn State, respectively. 2) I have belatedly discovered and am loving the Showtime drama, Homeland. It could be the great storyline, or my long-standing, unseemly infatuation with Claire Danes. 3) Join us on Twitter @gregcote]

Me on ESPN's 'OTL' today: Your faithful columnist and blogger has been invited to appear today on ESPN's Outside The Lines (3 p.m.), and has agreed. It'll be for a segment on the uproar over coach Gregg Popovich sitting his core player last night in the semi-Spurs' loss to the Heat here.

Reunited: FAU following FIU to Conference USA: The Owls of Boca Raton announced the football team will join Conference USA in 2014. FIU is making the switch now, for '13. The Sun Belt is sinking. As Elton John sang, "Don't Let the Sun (Belt) Go Down On Me."

NFL PREDIX: BRADY, PATS OFFENSE LOOK UNSTOPPABLE: Dolphins look good at home to keep it 1aacote2inside a 7 1/2-point betting line Sunday, but wishful thinking is required (sorry) to imagine Miami's offense will outscore Tom Brady's. Click On Week 13 Gems for all of today's latest NFL picks by me, and on Postseason Primer for our Friday Page leagues notes column leading with a look at the playoff races. Looking pretty dram,a0free at this point, with eight or nine of the 12 playoff spots in firm control.

BONDS. CLEMENS. SOSA. VERDICT TIME!: The 2013 Baseball Hall of Fame ballot is out this week, and 1aa1bb3notables on it for the first time include Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens and Sammy Sosa, the Mount Rushmore of the sport's 1aa1bb3hallSteroids Era. This vote will be the ultimate referendum on whether Cooperstown will admit those linked with PEDs, because these three -- especially Bonds and Clemens -- otherwise would be first-ballot inductees of the highest order. Long-time baseball writers get to vote. But now you get to vote first. I have included on my ballot the three guys mentioned plus Pete Rose, just for old time's sake. Vote for as many of the four as you think belong in Cooperstown in 2013. You may vote for any, all or "none." Decide and say why.

Poll result: Strong support for Marlins/Loria boycott: We asked in the previous blogpost (you may still vote) what Marlins fans should do, and 76.7 percent said stop supporting the team as long as Jeffrey Loria is owner. Another 16.3% said contuinue to support team and 7.0% were undecided. Interestingly, the animus was slightly less strong in Florida, where the numbers were 73.7/18.1/8.2.

1aa1boshTURNS OUT CHRIS BOSH IS AN INTERGALACTIC TRAVELER. WHO KNEW?: A new animated short film, Adventures of Christopher Bosh In the Multiverse, will debut mid-December in the Borscht Film Festival at the Arsht Center in downtown Miami. A screen-grab is pictured. (It animates when you click on it. Cheap thrill). The film is by Ronnie Rivera of the art consortium Bleeding Palm. Click HERE to watch a short trailer. The film is trippy-delic. It's like nothing I've ever seen that did not involve mushrooms.

Heat beat Semi-Spurs; get off Popovich's back!: The NBA literati and commissioner David Stern are up in arms that Spurs coach Gregg Popovich rested his primary stars in the Heat's 105-100 win here last night. Oh the outrage! Embarrassment! Travesty! No it wasn't. It was a coach's decision, that's all. Popvich wanted to save some old legs to then face conference fe Memphis. His call. What next? Stern monitoring stars' minutes? Only time this should come into play and be anybody's business but the team's is late in the sesaon when playoff positioning is being determined. If a team is resting stars to lose for a more favorable playoff opponent, then that's Stern's business. Not now. (Postscript: During the telecast, Charles Barkley informed us Dwyane Wade isn't the player he used to be. Do tell! Scoop to Chuck!) 

LeBron back on top in jersey sales: LeBron James jerseys are No. 1 in latest NBA merchandise sales for first time since April 2011 -- yet another sign of his transformation from national villain to champion-hero. Rounding out top five: Kevin Durant, Kobe Bryant, Carmelo Anthony and Derrick Rose. Dwyane Wade is seventh. In team sales the Knicks are No. 1 for first time since 2004, with the Heat second.

SUPER BOWL ODDS NOW A DEAD-HEAT: Updated, from Bovada, Texans and Patriots now SB co-favorites at 9-2, followed by 49ers at 5-1 and Broncos 11-2. (Dolphins improved to 200-1, 20th place). MVP picks are Peyton Manning at 5-4 and Tom Brady 5-2.

ON POWERBALL AND LOTTERY OBSESSION: You are a loser if you plunged money into this week's $579.9 million multi-state Powerball. Alas, I mean that literally and figuratively. Playing the lottery is a 1aa1ballsucker's bet, with only 47 cents on the dollar returned. "Yeah well somebody has to win!" Yeah except it won't be you. One winning ticket was sold in Arizona, another in Missouri. Everybody else ripped up their money. Your odds of winning this week's Powerball were 175-million-to-1. You are more likely to see a Dromedary camel in sweatpants on a treadmill at Dick's Sporting Goods. Studies also indicate that lower-income folks -- not LeBron James, who plays, too -- are disproportionately more likely to play the lottery. The folks who can least afford to waste money, in other words. Shoot, who am I kidding with this anti-lottery rant. I'm just mad I didn't win, either!

DEAR ANGUS T. JONES...: The now-young-adult star of the sitcom Two And A Half Men is telling 1aa1angusChristian media that people should not watch the show because it is full of filth. 1) No it isn't. It is full of sophomoric, double-entendre sexual humor, that's all. 2) You are an actor. You pretend for a living. Just as we know the actor who plays Dexter is not really a serial killer, we understand that you are simply playing a character on TV. 3) You grew out of that role years ago. Kindly quit the show you disdain soon, before its producers have the good sense to fire your ungrateful a--.

Cote,

The ONLY one from that group that belongs in the hall is Pete Rose hands down...

ps-thanks for calling me a loser (I played the lotto & lost)

It's a testament to the idiocy of the average American that Two and a Half Men is still on the air despite having terrible writing and unfunny jokes, having the lead man melt down and get fired, having a closeted but blatant homosexual cast as the 'woman-crazy' brother, and having the fat kid outgrow his role and the premise of the show by year two.

That's still on the air, and Arrested Development gets cancelled after three seasons. Just a travesty.

Space Bosh is no match for Mutumbo.

Kazaam,

haven't watched network shows since "police story" in the early 70s, unless you consider MNF a network show. i am sure if arrested development met your standards and then some it was okay, but the almighty simpsons didn't even get me to watch, and i have been following harry shearer since he was on the incredible comedy group "the credibility gap" that was featured on KRLA throughout the late 60s and early 70s, before david landers and michael mckean co-opted to be on the ridiculously awful "laverne and shirley". i guess mabe i did watch "kotter" for a few years. i stick to the oldies-bilko,car 54, and a few others that were very minor but brilliant- callicci's dept. and the incredibly talent laden "he and she": richard benjamin, the luscious paula prentiss, kenneth mars (the playwright in "the producers" and the vastly talented folksinger turned actor hamilton camp (pride of man- first cut on quicksilver's first album), besides jack cassidy who portryed the egomaniacal jetman that was borrowed by the mary tyler moore show in the newscaster charactyer played by ted knight. just watch ancient DVDs that are still a hoot and old time radio with its brilliant writing and acting. anything by david fiedkin and morton fine- "crime classics (very witty and tongue-in-cheek) and
"broadway is my beat" are almost 70 years old and still increibly great without the bitter, fag mafia that has taken over the writing of such crap as frazier, will and grace, and the like.

OF THE BASEBALL BUNCH:

isn't it baseball's position that if pete rose, as despicable as he is, fessed up about his betting they'd let him back in and he'd be in cooperstown on the first try? the others who used steroids are never, ever gonna get in-geez. too bad. and bonds pre-hulk mode hade the credentials anyway- a three-time MVP, tremendous defensive left fielder,... that is what is a shame about him. never liked the guy, much like pete rose, ut could appreciate his accomplishments.

GEEZ, A THURSDAY NIGHT GAME OF INTEREST!!

saints lose and they are cooked, so it says here they will win without the points. atlanta has a lot of wiggle room and they don't win big games it seems.

Shadow -check it out for yourself, the first season's up on Hulu. It's just a very well written show with an insanely good cast.

Narrated by Ron Howard, stars Jason Bateman, Henry Winkler, Ellen Degeneress' hot wife Portia, Michael Cera, Liza Minelli, Will Arnett, Jeff Tambor, Jessica Walter, David Cross, and a bunch of other guest stars.

http://www.hulu.com/watch/589

Says here Saints lose big their defense is awful and I don't like Drew Brees.

Bonds, Clemens, Rose yes but who the heck voted for Sosa a one tool player if there ever was one based on numbers alone McGwire and Palmeiro should get in if you let one in you have to let them all in it's the steroid era.

I know I'm a day late and a dollar short. Whenever I think about Lincoln I wonder how a man who battled depression was able to manage his ENORMOUS responsibilities as well. So many amazing people throughout history. I didn't see the movie. Civil war is too depressing...

I loved the original Untouchables series. It was on one of the local oldies stations. They replaced it with Remington Steele. Remington Steele are you f***ing kidding me!

All should go into the hall. They should let them go up to the plate with the hypodermic needle still stuck in their arm. This is a total non issue. Who in their right mind would sit on an uncomfortable bicycle for 30 straight days peddling his ass off through France when he could be gently sight seeing through the country sipping on fine wine, eating great food, and trying to pick up chicks, unless he was an idiot. If idiots want to do stupid things to their bodies so be it. I would vote for Bonds and Clemmens without hesitation. Just like I could care less that Lance Armstrong was injecting radio active kryptonite into his buttocks to waste thirty days of his life doing the wrong thing when he was in France.

See the Honey Badger is heading for the NFL draft. I didn't think you were allowed to tell the NFL though that the only team you want to draft you is the Denver Broncos? That weed is good stuff for people to blow millions of dollars.

I loved the Untouchables. Great show. I saw the original movie when I was a kid. My favorite part of the show was the commentary from Walter Winchel. After John Facenda, and it's close, I can't think of a more distinctive voice . Classic show, Duke.

Naples, I remember that OC, I mean Dashi blew a 56 but do you remember what Kaz blew?

Duke,

I think Licoln killing vampires is more up your alley.

Sorry Woodcock, the HR record still should belong to hammering Hank, Bonds, Clemens and Sosa cheated while playing, on the other hand Rose gave his all on the playing field, he deserves to get in (as despicable as he is).

as for old shows, I used to like two in particular, Kojac and the rockford files.

game tonight?..don't care who wins but I'll be watching...the Heat play also.

shadow, on the previous subject post and concerning Butterfield's East-West YouTube link, I'm hearing a citar play. Could that be what makes those high notes at 6:36?

Nice stuff.

FZ, look at it this way, when Babe set the record medical procedures were barely better than when the Pilgrims got here. When Hank set the record, medical procedures had improved and player careers were extended, hank played more than 20 seasons, when Bonds set the record medical procedures were even better. The point that I'm making is that you can't compare eras. You have to judge players against their peers. In the steroid era the players in question were the best players in the game. You only have one Hall of Fame and there are different categories or classifications of players in the Hall from the stiffs like Mazerosky to the gods like Ruth and Mays. You say they cheated. Fine, if cheating is limited to a few players then maybe you have a point, but it has been well documented that during the steroids era almost everyone was on the juice. If you start with the premise that most of the players were using then it's logical to conclude that Bonds, Clemens, and the rest all deserve to be in the Hall. What's the difference between Ty Cobb cheating on the bases and sharpening his spikes, or Gaylor Perry throwing the spitter, and Bonds and Clemens ingesting radio active kryptonite?

And speaking of Lincoln, I highly recommend the Movie. And to prove the Idiocy of of the average American, how is it the new vampire movie has twice the receipts of Lincoln? The dumbing down of America..........

No I never cared for vampires. As a kid I was a big Godzilla fan. Unfortuneatly movies of the great beast were pure camp.

Well said Aqua.

Like I told OC, "It's a movie for sophisticated audiences."

"Poppycock,Woodcock,poppycock!, there aren't enough bells and whistles and explosions and bright shinny things to keep your attention for 2 hours. Lincoln sucks."

Oh boy.

I did feel a connection to Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Movie with Spencer Tracy and Ingrid Bergman was very entertaining. And lets face it were all Dr Jekylls & Mr Hydes.

duke, in typical Spielberg fashion over such things as war (see D-Day invasion/Normandy), he pulls no punches. Depicted are very slow, deliberate bayonet insertions within muddy, watery battleground. He fills the screen with dying men so as to impress the horrors of war.

The movie was very well acted and portrayed, as one would assume Spielberg would execute, but to me, it was more about how political parties and individuals acquiesce to men of power (Benghazi, anyone?).

I like Vampire movies classic good versus evil stories some of them.

Two reasons I wouldn't care to see the film. Thanks for heads up OC.

Forget it OC, you already opened you mouth like Pandora's box and you already sounded like a chump when you critiqued what is probably the best motion picture released this year. But not to worry, we are all waiting with bated breath for your review of the upcoming little troll movie. I hear that Burger King is already giving away little Hobbit troll dolls with every happy meal. Nice.

Woodcock,

Fine, how about this compromise, open a separate wing at the hall of fame for the roids era and put them in there with an asterisk, I'll be ok with that..

but I see your point.

now, as for movies..I love historical movies (Lincoln, D-Day, Midway etc) but I also love sci-fi flicks like Star Wars and Star Trek..I must admit that is a strange combination but it is what it is.

Oh si, se me olvido, I like "lord of the Rings" also..

I'm more of a Full Metal Jacket type of guy when it comes to war films. Much more introspective look at the horror. Oh yes and ah let us not forget the greatest war film ever made Dr Strangelove.

Stanely Kubrick was a film making God!

Baby,

I saw the replay were Rondo got tossed last night and I think he over reacted a bit there, I've seen a lot worse fouls than that (specially at playoff time) , this is going to cost him a game suspension.

I have a good old black and white film for you guys, its called "inherit the wind" with Spencer Tracy & Fredic March, I wanna say it was made in the late 50's, a classic..

Stanley Kubrick wasn't a slouch either.

FZB, no need to explain. Your tastes are completely normal. Woodcock is the only guy I know who still watches VHS tapes of Barney for the educational benefits.

The Shining movie was amazing duke FZB Rondo did overreact it didn't look like too hard of a foul to me but rightly Doc blamed Humphries and supported his player today admitting that he needs to get his emotions more under control.

Yeah like we didn't know that about our enigmatic point guard.

I think it was more of a case of him supporting KG he loves him like an older brother.

I think most people are like that FZ. You can go watch a fantasy like Star Wars for fun, but those kinds of movies will not move you, or make you think, or get you angry, etc., for that you need a well made drama, which is what movies like Lincoln are about. OC, is a great guy with a bizarre taste in movies and music. I like to use him as my barometer for both what ever he tells me I go the opposite.

Dukes-Ter,

Here is another classic scene for you..FMJ.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4kU0XCVey_U

Oh, and here's another of my pet peeves about OC and movies and TV shows. He loves to tell you how movies and TV shows that you "haven't seen yet" end. Now, what kind of a jack ass does that? I told him I was watching Game of Thrones and he started to tell me how it ends, and I said WTF! And he says yea I looked it up couldn't wait through three years to find out how it ends!"

Oh boy.

yeah, I guess that would upset me too but I don't think OC does that to everybody, he just does it to you to piss you off.

you know, brotherly love kind of thing.

FZB, perhaps this simple allegory would help (Woody, take note, a pun is coming) shed light as to how Woodcock views aspects of life.

Place a diamond under a microscope (might be the first time he actually uses such a devise) and have him tell you what he sees. Woodcock would not spend more than one second observing and feasting his curiosity with such things as color, angles, facets, or deeper still, their interplay. No, he would just hover for that one second, raise his head, and just ask how much it costs.

Yet this simpleton has the balls to interject any kind of artistic depth. This from a guy whose favorite movie and actor of all time are Animal House and John Belushi.

Not that there's anything wrong with those two, mind you.

Spoiler Alert!

We hear that Lincoln is shot at the end of the movie.

Oh sh*t. I've done it now. I've spoiled it for everyone.

No men no, he does it all the time. Remember he blew a 56, ah sorry OC, I meant Dashi blew a 56.

OC, you like to waste time with the minutia of life while I'm a "Motor Oil is Motor Oil type guy" as you like to say, bottom line type.

FZB yes that is a classic scene in a movie I was compelled to watch several times.

Pandora's box. You still don't get this particular movie about Lincoln which is not a biography at all. "Woodcock, he dies at the end." Oh boy, moron, we all die at the end, it's the stuff between birth and death that is important.

OC you blew movie Lincoln for everyone but me as I'm not going to waste my time in the blood, mud and guts. Just watch the news if your in the mood for horror.

OC I blew proper usage of "you're" again. Damn it gives me away everytime.

Duke, this movie has nothing to do with the battles. The only battle scenes are at the introduction, maybe 2 minutes. It's the story of how the 13th amendment was passed, period.

Now Jurassic Park that was an entertaining horror movie! Oh yes and Jaws has pretty much kept me out of deeper waters.

Duke, I have the same problem over and over with the words your, you're, where, and were. The English language is a nightmare to write.

Woodcock, perhaps you should have taken your blog name from a different movie - Shallow Hal.

Man when the shark ripped open the Kitner kid that was enough to make me think twice about going swimming off off coast of Marthas Vineyard.

Woodcock I think, I'm afraid there may be some damage to my frontal lobes due to ah poor decisions made in my unruly youth but I pray this is not the case.

Woodcock, the reality is that like most movies I'll be compelled by curiosity to watch Lincoln when it's on DVD.

Saving Private Ryan was engrossing just from the fact it was well filmed and that was the largest horror, the largest war of "good" vs "evil." Stalin good? Well he was lucky enough to be on the side of the allies at the wars end. That's not meant to take anything away from brave Russian Individuals that bravely crushed the NAZIS.

duke, Woodcock hated Clockwork Orange. He only knows of certain scenes as a consequence of the many years I've referenced various snippets. I bring this up because it would take the kind of bondage that our young protagonist is placed under to have Woodcock watch what I consider was ten times the movie Lincoln is. It was on last night on TCM, and I had never watched it.

The original 1972 film, Solaris. Direction and screenplay by Andrei Tarkovsky. Perhaps the USSR's best filmmaker. Needless to say, it was in Russian with English subtitles. I watched all three hours and the movie still plagues me today.

-THAT- is the key to a good movie. When you don't dismiss as soon as you walk to your car, or worse, while you're still watching it.

Woodcock would pop a brain artery three minutes into that film, while strapped to Alex's chair.

speaking of war movies/documentaries..Have any of you guys seen "the Pacific"..HBO mini-series?..

Highly recommended it too...

Clockework Orange sucked. One of Kubrick's worse efforts. Right up there with the last one he made with Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman. Pure shit.

Lincoln is low hanging fruit, an 'epic' that's only epic because the subject is some historical figure or event. Those movies are rarely good and always critically acclaimed.

'Isn't Spielberg a genius???? Showing how divided the country was because of the politicians? That's kind of like today, huh guys? Did you guys get that too? It's like today! See what Spielberg was saying? Guys? So relevant to today! You guys got that too, right?'

Oye,

What kind of nonsense crap are you talking about?, we're not a divided country, everyone loves Obi...including me (since I got my free phone)


Shallow Hal stuff. Just banal.

duke, when you do set out to see Lincoln, make sure you have a pillow near by.

duke, I believe I know your tastes. Read the Plot description of this movie and tell me if you think it not interesting as hell.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solaris_(1972_film)

This ends the argument. OC, Kaz thinks you're right. Nuff said.

Of course you two agree you're both in the same area of the IQ spectrum. Oh sorry OC, I forgot it was Dashi who blew the 56!


http://www.latimes.com/news/local/la-me-cap-lincoln-20121129,0,6308624.column

OC I don't care for subtitles but that sounds like a fascinating film for which I will probably make an exception as I did with Downfall. No big surprise that I would find that film engrossing.

'Man, Jerry Brown needs to watch this movie - Spielberg is such a genius!!! He's talking about Lincoln and not being able to get something done because of the politicians - but the REAL message about today! That TODAY's politicians aren't getting anything done because they're so partisan. Did you guys get that too? It's relevant to TODAY! Lincoln's problem with politicians back THEN is like the US' problem with politicians TODAY. Like in California, where nothing gets done because the politicians are so partisan! Someone needs to tell Jerry Brown to watch this movie ASAP - he might not get it at first because it's so clever but we can all explain it to him afterwards! Speilberg for president!'

Duke, Solaris won the 1973 Raspberry Award for the worst science fiction movie and it wasn't even close. They said, and I quote, "Solaris? Do yourself a favor and just watch Lost in Space." "Danger Will Robinson!"

When the Heat had a back to back against LA and then Denver JVG jokingly suggested that they send their stars to Phoenix to get ready for that game and just send five scrubs to Denver.

Gregg Popovich just did exactly that for a nationally televised game - Ginobli, Parker, Duncan, Danny Green, all sent home after the last game and not playing in Miami tonight. Essentially a game San Antonio is forfeiting to protest the schedule makers.

Wassup Kaz! You still decompressing in the decompression chamber. You must sound real cute talking like Donald Duck. Quack, quack, quack.

Clockwork Orange was a supremely well made film which presented mans darkside in a highly unique and shocking way. As the "darkside" coursed through Alex's veins so it coursed throughout the penal systems and the political systems and so it does today. Fortunately there is another side two...

OK, I'm in Wood's..I'll be watching Lincoln soon.

I read that article you posted about you Governor, if there are so many problems in Cali, Why don't you guys ask Obi for some help?

you know he's the best "presidente" we've had around here since Roosevelt and the Cali's people voted for him big time, its time for a little pay back I say.

Gregg Popovich is the only coach that I can think of that has the "cojones" to pull that off....(sending his players home and basically forfeiting a game).

Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. I'd rather go through what Malcolm McDowell went through, "and" get kicked in the balls by a Kangaroo than to sit through that. Even smoking ten petards, eating a bag of shrooms, and snorting four lines of cannabinol would I have a change of heart. I didn't see it after smoking ten Hopi peace pipes of peyote but I did try to watch it on weed, shrooms, and cannabinol, but maybe the peyote would make a difference.......not. Pure crap.

kicked in the balls by a Kangaroo LOL

Actually, Kazaam, in California everything gets done. Just the wrong kind of things. There are no checks and balances. The state's legislature has been controlled by Democrats since 1970 except during 1995 and 1996.

It is a microcosm of what Obama and his liberal friends wish to bring to the rest of the country.

One would think that educated people would take notice and move to do just the opposite, but well...there you have it.

http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2012/11/29/Study-CA-worst-governed

OC did A Clockwork Orange make you laugh. I must admit I laughed several times...

The scene where Alex smashes the giant penis into cat woman's face sent me howling with laughter. I think it was the cartoonish quick edit of the words "WHAM" (or words to that effect) in red at the point of impact that did it.

Then again, I've always had a twisted sense of humor. The what's red and goes a thousand revolutions per minute joke was one of my favorites back when I was 12. I still find it funny.

Yup you got it man. Not too many people saw the outlandish humor in the film and there were plenty of 'em.

I'm singing in the rain, just singing in the rain...

If you want free stuff, move to California.

Yes, that one and a couple more... the slow motion range of facial expression changes of Dim as Alex helps him out of the pond while slicing his hand, or the performance actors taking a bow after administering torture to "cured" Alex.

duke, try to imagine finding yourself strapped to a chair while someone made you watch ultraviolence while the lovely, lovely sounds of Jimi were playing in the background. You'd find that humorous, no?

One of the more obscure notes about this film was the very prominent synthesizer soundtracks of Walter Carlos who set about to become Wendy Carlos in real life. How perfectly appropriate for such a film.

OC and Duke,

its just wrong and morbid to say that a "clockwork orange" made you laugh, what's wrong with you two?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=arijbOzqM-E

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6uEJRmoIDVc

hhhhhmmmmm, you two need some help, and fast.

But I feel neglectful for Mr. Woodcock. Well, here, he should be able to relate to this:

Oh, Jane.
Look and see.
See Sally go.
See Tim go.
See Spot and Puff go.
Run Spot, run.

OC,

I always recommended this to the Dukes-Ter, I think it helps him with his "problemas", perhaps this can help you also...

no need to pay me, there's no charge.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I4q-w0qsLkQ

It's not right that I should have to viddy lovely, lovely Jimi while feeling sick to me stomach. It's like against GOD!

OC,

this is interesting...behind the scenes (The Hobbit), no le digas nada a Woodcock..

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4vqyzHwnEiY&feature=g-logo

Mr. Woodcock,

agreed that "a clockwork orange" was an incredible piece of revolting junk. i am partial to kubrick's earlier eforts, like "the killing" (racetrack robbery movie with the magnificent sterling hayden) and of course "paths of glory". lolita OK, strangelove is strangelove, and i didn't see 'barry lyndon" or anthing after besides clockwork. my friend was his tax attorney and made a nice living from just that one client. he got kind of twisted at the end, but the early stuff was really good.

El OC es tremendo sick pud, dude. He's an enigma wrapped in a riddle. The boy was an altar boy at St. Michael's but he also is a fervent believer in that astrology bull shit. And not to get laid, which I have to give him credit a lot of dumb chicks fell for that line, the problem is that at some point he started to believe in that Sagitarius bull crap. He is torn by "unsolved issues that he had when he was a child." Taking his four month puppy and running him over on purpose with the lawnmower has left a lasting mark.

OC Dolphin,

the sitar sound you heard before the east turned to west musta been elvin bishop, as i don't recall seeing anybody but the six members, the three Bs (butterfield, bloomfieldm and bishop) and the AND (arnold, naftalin, and davenport) credited as the musicians behind that incredible piece of music. i pass on everything before bloomfield takes over pretty much. the whole album is great, and even the beginning of east/west is tolerable. saw the elvin bishop group a couple of times and they stunk.

SPURS PLAYING HEAT WITHOUT DUNCAN,PARKER,GINOBLI and DANNY GREEN (also kawhi leonard)!!!

they ought to give back the money to people who bought individual tickets for this. is bruce bowen gonna suit up for san antonio? who else do they have? TNT must be supremely ticked off.

FZB, thanks, that was very interesting and informative. All the sound stuff, especially the orchestral integration.

Woodcock, you know I was never an altar boy. You're confusing me with Mario Alvarez.

I'm sure Vegas is canceling all bets on that game. I'd say it's about even odds between a Spurs win and Woodcock passing a third grade level final exam.
