  1. Movie characters you can't stand

  2. Movie characters you can't stand

    I'm not talking about the best villain, I'm talking about the characters in movies that you just can't stand. For me: Easily the biggest wet blanket of all time. OF ALL TIME. Is there a bigger wet blanket in any movie than Adrian? Not only that but she does it across FIVE MOVIES. She's always there, looking nervous and cautioning Rocky about what he should and shouldn't do.
  3. Pretty sure I got this from Toys R Us back in the day. And sitting in the back seat of my parents car on the way to visit my grandparents and annoying the **** out of them with it.
  4. RIP Stephen Hawking
  5. Add one more to the list of guys you thought were good but turned out to be creeps:
  6. Random Thought Thread Whew, this was one uncomfortable interview on a number of levels.
  7. Redskins receiving corp is beginning to shape up

    I'll catch flak for it, but I don't give a ****. Kinda bummed about Ryan Grant moving on. Don't get it twisted, I'm not arguing that the Skins should have signed him for what he got from the Ravens. Grant was absolutely right to take that money and laugh to the bank. Even with the addition of Richardson, our receiving corps still has a lot to prove. Don't need to rehash what happened last year but there was enough opportunity for Grant to step up and catch 45 balls for 573 yards and 4 touchdowns. That's some pretty good production for a 3 or 4 receiver and I like to think he could possibly have matched that in 2018.
  8. The Official "Marvel" Thread (Movies,Comics etc)

    I actually really liked 2nd season of Jessica Jones.

    Copy that, hope Adrienne is well.
  10. Let's All Get Behind Alex Smith!

    While I don't like the trade, primarily because we gave up a talented young CB in Kendall Fuller, I am welcoming Alex Smith and rooting for him. Seems like a good guy who has worked hard to get his career to a good place.
  11. It was a thrill going there in the mid to late 80s and early 90s. The one on Rt 7 in Tysons. I went in one a few years ago, and the smell of plastic was intoxicating. Associating a smell like that with a memory of being a kid, going in there and getting an action figure like a Transformer or a GI Joe was great. Or going to where the Nintendo games were, picking the game, getting that little slip of paper and taking it to the window in the front where they'd give you the actual game. Well, mom or dad would but you know what I mean. Sounding like an old man here, but it's kind of a bummer that kids growing up now won't know what it's like to go to a toy store and how fun that was.

    One of my photos of AWOLNATION got published on Rolling Stone 3 years ago. They were pretty awesome to watch. Great show.
  13. What's your favorite sports teams???

    1. Orioles. Die hard Orioles fan. Just because the Nats moved closer, I never wavered. Growing up here, it was the closest baseball team. Faint memories of Memorial Stadium and I've been there for dozens of games at Camden Yards. 2. Redskins. More like 1a. 3. Wizards. I don't follow the NBA like I used to but I still watch a few games and pull for them. I will be taking an interest in the Vikings this year. I've been long looking for a reason to root for another NFL team because the Skins have done us dirty for so long. While there's no way Cousins and the Vikings can replace the Skins for me, at least there's something else to look forward to on Sundays now. And I know enough about them to come across as an informed non-bandwagon fan. (Fran Tarkenton, Bud Grant, the Purple People Eaters, Alan Page, Carl Eller, John Randle, Randy Moss and Cris Carter, Gary Anderson's missed kick after being 100% all year, a fancy new stadium and other stuff).

    Recently became a Vikings fan.
  15. WH: 2018’s Happiest Cities in America

    SF is a great place to be, no doubt, but I don't know how anyone can be happy with that cost of living no matter how much money you make. I can't believe DC is in the top 100, I hate this place.

    RIP Craig Mack.
  17. Pretty much. I mean, all people want to see is a QB win or lose a game and talk non stop about how the QB is great or the QB is garbage. While it is a QB driven league, there seems to be little interest in anything else. All you hear is like "Kirk didn't win a playoff game" or "Kirk hasn't won a big game" Last I checked, it's a team sport. But let's not let any of the other Skins shortcomings get in the way.
  18. I think the NFL should adopt a new way to play. No offensive line, no running back (except split out wide) and the game is just basically a QB standing in the pocket trying his best to pick defenses apart. No running game, no nothing...just a QB and his arm going against a defense because, after all, that's all that really matters in the NFL.
  19. Hellooooooo Vikings! Meet some of your newest fans!

    Alright, who's that?

    It's ****ing Monday. Grab your balls and get after it. If this doesn't fire you up, I don't know what else will.
  22. They should have a mining crew fly up in a space ship, land on it, drill down inside it, drop a nuke inside and blow it up to save earth.
  23. Great Movie Scenes

    It got all ****ing dusty in here all of a sudden... At GMU, I got to take a sports film class. It was me and a bunch of the athletes from different teams, I think I was the only one not on a team (Crew Club didn't really count). I'm not sure how I got to take that class, but it was an easy A. Guys who would go on to play in the Final Four the next year were in that class, Jai Lewis being one of them. Anyway, this was one of the movies we had to watch, everyone pretty much trashed it because they all had the attention span of a flea. I remember sitting in the back, slinking down in my seat and getting all emotional at that scene because THIS MOVIE IS AWESOME and none of them had any taste. Yes, it's slow but it's a fantastic story and ending is one of the most beautiful moments caught on film, ever. The whole movie is beautifully shot, the use of light, shadows and space is fantastic. I like the 4:45 mark with the players jumping around with the sparks raining down on them. I was the only one who got the extra credit right on the follow up test, the question being the name of the batboy's bat that Hobbs uses to hit the home run. I've seen this movie a few dozen times and it never gets old.
  24. One more season of Californication to go and I'm looking forward to getting it over with. It's really getting pretty ****ty.
  25. Great Movie Scenes

    Yeah, pretty much.
