  1. Cover Time: What's your favorite version of the Motown hit "Money (That's What I Want)"?

    1. Jules

      Jules

      I am not sure how to work on it lol. I did not know the Beatles covered that song but I really don't follow Led Zepp but it seems many many do.

      I mean I did know the Beatles covered it...not Led Zepp.

      Iggy & the Stooges version just to be different I guess. Honestly though, I love Buddy Guy's Blues version Bogie from "A Man & The Blues" album.

  2. R.I.P. Lauren Bacall :(

      You'll be fine buddy, even though I can't blame most people for thinking about wanting to it end from time to time, been there before.

      Yes, sometimes this world can be very depressing. Please hang around Bogie. I'd miss not having music & movie discussions with you my friend.

      It always bums me out when people I really enjoy are no longer here. It still blows losing Williams & Bacall so close together because it feels like part of your youth dies with their final departure.

  5. Shaky cam horror movies are no different than spending an hour listening to a band where their string instruments are completely out of tune.

  6. Wishing a Happy Birthday to Kirk Douglas who turned 99 today. 

    1. Synthetic

      Synthetic

       

      Fun note - Out of the Past was supposed to star Bogart. He was locked into a contract at the time with Warner Bros so he couldn't do it. Mitchum was Bogart's own choice to do the film, and he pushed him to do it. Robert Mitchum was a pair with Jane Greer. Don't know how it would have worked out with Bogie, but it's still a fine movie. 

    2. southwest1

      southwest1

      That's a cool kernel of info about Mitchum there & I had no idea that Bogie was supposed to star in that film. That's for your motion picture recommendations & music recommendations completely. You have good tastes in less familiar masterpieces Bogie. 

      I'm being sincere in my praise here. No funny business. I swear.

  7. Industrial day: Ministry, Skinny Puppy, NIN, and Rammstien. Who says I can't rock out?

    1. Synthetic

      I love Electronica and Industrial though I mean more towards the lighter side with the New Wave influences. Rammstien is an awesome band you will love if that's your thing, start with their first album Herzeilied, it's their best IMO

      Geometry or anything math related was never my strong suit Bogie, but I do agree that the thematic score was unforgettable & landmark at the time of it's release though. HAL was a cool computer villain voice too, but the human actors in that film never impressed me that much personally. I will admit that the director was creating images on screen never seen before & he deserves praise for that.

      Hi, their albums are expensive. Just a tip, keep a look out for used copies on EBay. They are much cheaper than the usual 13-16 bucks for one of the brand new remasters.

    3. Synthetic

      Synthetic

      I have two of the new remasters from 2009 and they do sound great, but there really is no difference compared to the old EMI/Capital CD releases if you have a good output stereo. I play mine on the computer, and the older discs still sound great.

      Purple Rain is an emotional song too. First time I ever seen the movie, oh yeah I teared up watching that for the first time. He does not play it much either, also Let's Go Crazy, he cranked up his guitar for that.

  16. We just witnessed two of the greatest championships in both the NBA and NFL. The two best players of both sports mounting amazing comebacks. So happy I lived to witness...Enjoy these memories while you have them, cause it won't last forever. Hands down, the best Super Bowl I ever seen. Hats off to Brady, he is officially the best quarterback I have ever seen and I'll defend him to the end. Hats off to LeBron, no one deserved it more than Cleveland last year.

      You could never bore me Bogie. Besides, soothing Jazz & Delta Blues is music to my ears. It's better than a lot of garbage that passes for music today IMO.

      Can't go without appreciating all music genres in the world, I've found so many gems in the places I would have never guessed I would find myself enjoying music. Modern music on the radio today is a huge disappointment, but thankfully we still have the underground bands that make up for it!

  24. The best Saints blog I have ever read. Almost 2 years old, and yet everything in this article still rings true. The writers also predicted them to go into cap hell all the way back in 2013. 

     

    The article sums up every problem going back to 2009 and the toxicity that came under Williams' system that we still are dealing with.

      I'd LOVE to see Tampa win the NFC South. Jameis Winston IMO is going to be a better QB than Cam Newton in a few years. He's a more accurate passer who don't overly rely on the #1 target. 

       

      I've seen this script before with the Saints losing a bunch of very close games that were arguably winnable. The next thing coming is the blow out. Oh yes, we're going to spanked in one of the next few games. Atlanta too. You keep losing nail biters like that, you eventually get a game where you are flat out beaten down. 

       

      This SNF game sucks but I am dreading Seattle next week. If they are shut out here, watch them turn around and take all their rage out on the Saints on the road in our dome. Saints fans saying "we got this" are like LSU fans screaming "we want Bama!"

      What old Hall of Fame QB will the Saints 2016 defense be compared to with passer rating? 

       

      This part though lmao

       

      Quote

      Question: Who would throw for more yards against the 2015 Saints secondary, Wax Montana or Broadcaster Marino?

      lmao

       

      Also, all jokes aside, that break down about 2008 is pretty accurate...We had a decent secondary that year and finished 8-8. That year is often very overlooked, but that was where our secondary got better leading into 2009. 

       

      And this part...

       

      Quote

      You know, this one isn’t so bad. The Saints’ defense wasn’t that terrible in 2006. It was streaky, pairing nice performances with bad ones, and that’s a performance style that makes Cam a good fit. The Saints held up pretty well until teams started targeting the aged version of Fred Thomas and Josh Bullocks, the original Payton-era disappointing free safety.

       

      Shout out to Fred Thomas; proof that before 2006, we did have some decent defensive players. 

       

      But even funnier, Josh Bollocks...There you go, proof we've had Jason David type disappointing safeties going all the way back to 2006. lmao Every year we have one of those guys. This year it's Jarius Byrd. Last year it was Browner, before that; Patrick Robinson.

      I managed to get the first one to run on Windows 8. I love it, haven't played it in a long time. The 2nd one is widely hated due to the cut content but it does have better features than the first one; you can influence your party members to become dark side or light side.

      Cool. I'm glad you got the 1st one to work on Windows. You always feel like you beat the odds when you figure out a way to run a game on a machine previously thought 2 be incompatiable. Machine vs machine & man won. Woo Hoo!
