I've heard that EC has a big problem with Tolstoy too.

As beautiful as anything on North. The double entendre of the title harckens (sp?) back to Costello's most endearing wordplay, ie "I can't believe, I'll never believe in anything again." Interesting to me that the "My Darling" part borrows both from his earlier remake of "Psycho Mama" as well as Wil...

I'm with noise. The first one had a terrific original story and contained some innovative action scenes. I never like action scenes, but these were fresh and pointed. I didn't see 2 cause I heard it was all action. Maybe I'll rent it before 3 comes out. I here EC and Keanu have a Dogstar duet on the...

In the end, did we expect anything else?...

The Cubs choked, as per the plan. As per the curse. Most of all, as per the talent.

I feel the most sorry for Steve Bartman. The Cubs may rise again. This poor guy will NEVER live this down. For doing only what every fan in the stands would do.

pop, I expected to receive heat for my remarks. I understand the basic dynamic of this board and Costello's fan base. I listen to O'Reilly probably 3-4 times a week. I probably agree with 80 % of what he says. If that makes me a liar and a sham, then so be it. I don't consider myself a conservative,...

Do you know if tix are still available? I guess I'll check the website.

I may be quite lonely on this board in the near future cause in the Annex I just admitted that I'm a Republican't.

I'm an oddity on this board, being that I would call myself a (gulp) Republican. On the Mc Nabb issue, it seems to me he was accusing the sports press of racism. I have never really understood the term "reverse racism". That phrase in itself seems racist. I'll take the pragmatism of O Reilly any day...

So far we are doing pretty well on this island. We've got most of the staples. Pills, Soap, and a Shallow Grave.
