  1. Watched the first episode of The Haunting of Hill House yesterday. I liked the pacing and the story telling. There was just enough freaky going on in the background to keep me interested, but the story so far seems very compelling IMO..it was weird seeing Carla Gugino and Henry Thomas play husband and wife when in Geralds game Henry was the molesting dad to her young character. I liked how it was shot. I like where the story seems to be going. I like how they showed the beginning as it basically sets up the entire series...kind of throws you right into it, but it is a short sequence with just enough to make you interested. I am sure there is much more to come from that night.

    Lions at Dolphins pre-game discussion

    Hey stop stealing my schtick! Logically I think they should lose this game pretty handily...so they will win or at the very least make it SUPER close...like we get boned by one call in the end that could have won the game for us. The way they win will not matter. My Lions logic.

    Game 1: Nets @ Pistons

    Are the Nets supposed to be good at all? That had the feel of a game we should have won by more than a last second missed shot.
  4. The painting is very well done IMO. I am more impressed with your frame choice though. So many artists forget the frame..that one fits the painting perfect. I appreciate fine art. I have a buddy who is an art teacher, but also an amazing artist. I love looking over his new paintings and talking about them with him. There is always an emotion/story tied with all his work. He just shows me his stuff, I look at it for a few minutes and tell him what I feel from it. Nice work.
  5. Hang the DJ had a happy ending. That is the only other one I can think of though. I REALLY enjoy this show because I can also see most of these horrors coming true at some point in our history. Unlike The Twilight Zone...this show almost exclusively uses tech as the bad guy. Tech is accelerating at an exponential rate. They do not really rely on 'monsters or aliens etc', it is all about humanity and the tech they created.

    The Pet Peeve Thread

    I do not care, but what affects everyone is when people in 'power' decide to back the insane argument thus turning into more than what it is. Nobody SHOULD care about these lunatics, but the people with influence either by choice or for a sense of lost profit margin decide to back the crazy...then it becomes a bigger problem.

    Maybe they'll get hot in the playoffs

    I am so used to watching the Wings be a puck control team...passes on the tape, seemed like the puck was glued to this sticks...the past 3-4 years has been horrid in that regard...losing pucks all over the place.

    The Pet Peeve Thread

    It is one of the few albums I can listen straight through without skipping a song. There are not many, but this is one of them. Della Brown may be my favorite song by them ever. That ending solo is beyond amazing.

    Cursed... Greenfield Village does this Halloween nights thing for kids and we have been taking the kids the past few years. Last year we went late in October because all the tickets for the earlier days were sold out. It was cold and rained the entire time...it was miserable. Got tickets for opening day.... tonight...low 40's with a 60-70% chance of rain...

    I never suggested anyone need to feel pain for him. When a person makes more money than you apparently it is common to have no empathy for that person. I can paint plenty of scenarios where his money is stretched and he lives about the same as a 'normal' person. Some of them involve being careless with your money or having a costly addiction, but there are plenty of others that are honorable/noble.

    If it is 'well duh' how come I hear 'he could live comfortable if he was not stupid' comment every time a salary is mention that is more than the person writing the post...his comfortable is not your comfortable. Maybe instead say 'he can survive and will not be homeless' because that is what the dude struggling with 3 kids and making 50k a year would be if he did no planning. Someone making 500k a year all of a sudden making 100k a year is going to have a very hard time adjusting. As an example. And for many reasons.

    Yup...luck. I will take some of it all day. It is not like I am sitting here laughing saying 'I took all my money out at the perfect time!!!!' I still have my retirement in those funds and they are still losing money pretty bad right now, but the timing was just lucky.
