#3141672 The Nightmare Scenario

Posted by mr beauxjangles on 18 December 2014 - 11:11 AM

So if the Panthers December performance turns out to be not good enough to get us to the playoffs but good enough that it saves the jobs of most - or even all - of the coaching staff, how do you expect you'll react?

 

I don't really know how I'd react, but isn't it frustrating that it feels like we ask this exact same question almost every year? Ugh. I can think of maybe two seasons in the last ten years when we weren't asking this question in one way or another.

 




#3131145 Serial Podcast

Posted by mr beauxjangles on 12 December 2014 - 02:41 PM

My wife and I listened to the first five episodes in one day. We're hooked. We'll probably get caught up this weekend. Great story and I think the podcast format for this kind of storytelling is incredible. I was so skeptical. I love a good murder mystery and was concerned how well I would connect to the story without having images of the people, the place, etc that is provided through film documentary format. But it's great - let's your imagination run wild within the context of non-fiction, and I love that. Highly recommended.

I like how the Vikings viewing area that's blacked out is a big middle finger.


#3118746 And the new James Bond movie will be called.......

Posted by mr beauxjangles on 04 December 2014 - 05:19 PM

I grew up with Brosnan and the 007 movies he starred in were mostly bad. I don't believe it had anything to do with Brosnan, those films just had horrible scripts and dialogue.

 

My impression of Bond, not based on books or anything but the films I've seen, is that he is a sophisticated British gentleman. Craig simply does not have that super man appearance. His face and hair just don't scream superior genetics like Brosnan's did.

 

Craig looks more like an ugly Bond villain than Bond.

 

At the time I hoped they would pick Clive Owen instead of Craig.

 

I hear you. The great thing about Bond is that each actor has brought something different to the persona. Brosnan certainly embodied the polished gentleman persona, you're right about that. Daniel Craig is clearly the flawed and rugged Bond. Brosnan was self-assured with a smile - almost arrogant. Craig is self-assured with a grimace - welcoming of the danger but doesn't seem to enjoy it.

Get rid of Daniel Craig. He'll be bald soon. Pierce Brosnan was a way better bond. Craig has no presence and should never have been a leading man.

 

I am not a huge Daniel Craig fan, but you must be the first person to ever express this opinion. Pierce Brosnan is widely considered to be one of if not the worst Bond actors of all time along with Lazenby. Many regard Daniel Craig as one of the best, second only to Connery. Not saying this is my opinion, just stating what I have perceived to be the consensus. Personally, I have definitely preferred Craig over Brosnan.

#3117259 Panthers have allowed most QB pressure, 2X closest competition

Posted by mr beauxjangles on 03 December 2014 - 04:44 PM

If you polled this place in September every single one of us would have predicted that we would be dead last in allowing QB pressures.




#3085737 Ways to enjoy this season...

Posted by mr beauxjangles on 13 November 2014 - 04:01 PM

keep watching the games because you enjoy football, aren't a fair weather twat, and have, after all, endured jimmy clausen so whatever you are about to watch, it will never possibly bring about that level of pain and embarrassment.

or get yourself a blowie.


#3020388 Smoking

Horror story? Are you sure?

 

I watched my father die a slow painful death over the course of 15 months following diagnosis with inoperable stage four lung cancer. He made it much longer than many expected but he didn't have the energy to even enjoy his family and friends' company for the last six months of his life. He ate a diet of nothing but ginger snaps and key lime pie for the final two months because he couldn't find anything else that he could even get near his mouth without making him gag. Unfortunately he didn't die directly from his cancer. One morning he must have mustered enough strength to think he could drive my stepmother's car down the road a half mile to fill up her gas tank and get her some flowers. He loved taking care of her and it was so hard for him to be taken care of instead; he just wanted to do her a favor that morning. On his way back from the gas station, something happened - he crashed the car head on into a tree going at least 55 miles per hour. To this day we do not if it was an accident (did he pass out at the wheel?) or if he was trying to commit suicide. Sadly, he survived the car crash and spent his final 72 hours in absolute agony with a shattered pelvis, broken femur, and compound fracture of the tibia and fibula in the most awfully depressing room at WakeMed, this on top of not being able to breath because you have tumors that cover both lungs and have fully engulfed your heart in the process.We knew that he didn't have the strength to recover from the injuries. There were no options. We ultimately decided to send him for hip replacement surgery, knowing full well that there was little to no chance he would be able to come off a ventilator once they put him on it for the surgery. Two days after the surgery we had to take him off the ventilator. I watched him take his last gasping breath.

 

I didn't write all that for pity - absolutely not. I am at peace with everything that happened. I wrote it only because you asked for a horror story. And let me tell you, it can be horrific. I am also not trying to throw stones. I smoked from age 16 to 27. Been smoke free for five years. You can do it.




#3011129 Gameday Menu

You just throw it into a processer?


Yep. Might add some water or adjust olive oil depending in if you want a somewhat chunky or completely smooth dip. It'll come out like hummus just minus the tahini and cannellini instead of garbanzo.

7 lb butt went in the oven at 5:00am. I will prove to all purists that a solid bark can be obtained in the oven with photo evidence around kickoff.

#3000753 Game ball, who gets it?!

Posted by mr beauxjangles on 05 October 2014 - 04:00 PM

For anyone that re-watches games, go back and follow Luke. He was incredible today. Cason made some incredible plays. And the call on 3 and 3 that went to Olsen on with about four minutes left around 8 yard line...looked like he was going on a slant to the end zone (as he so often does) and then went for a quick out. First down. Great call.
