    Yo. I'm a former Franchisee these days. I can tell you Which sandwich franchise *NOT* to buy in to.

    Best Albums of the 90s

    This is actually what I remembered reading that made me post my initial response. Not sure I take away from that what you take away from that, but I acknowledge there's room for interpretation. Either way, I'm glad Nirvana isn't on that soundtrack. I can't imagine a song of theirs that would...

    Wednesday nights at Dad’s. Epic good karaoke. I’m down anytime.

    The movie you just watched

    Yesterday is every bit as grand as I’d hoped. Danny Boyle is the MF’in truth, yo.

    Avengers: Endgame (SPOILER THREAD!!!!)

    Looks like Endgame is a mere $14m behind Avatar now for #1 all-time worldwide. Should get that easily enough with the re-release, at least until Avatar re-re-releases its re-release.

    And now, in the interest of fairness and balance, I’ll rip on Nirvana. It always annoys me, on the MTV Unplugged album, when that preening gasbag of self-hatred Cobain intros a song, saying, “This is from our first album. Most people don’t own it.” Well yeah, you tongue-clicking...

    Best Albums of the 90s

    Anyone feel like discussing how gay this cover was/is, and how it’s pretty much gone unnoticed or mentioned for 28 years? Because that’s a rabbit hole I’ve fallen down today before even wandering back to this forum. They’re high-fiving! Non-ironically! What a freshmaker. Let me clarify...I’m...

    Well, yes...It’s because Nirvana said no.

    What are you watching?

    I’m stacking eps in the DVR for later binging, but the numbers I saw (fans and critics, both) looked very promising. Maybe Sheridan has made the S2 TV leap we were hoping for.

    And opening a new, posh La Cantera location. Pants-tent.

    Best Albums of the 90s

    Yesterday was the 25th anniversary of the release of Nine Inch Nails’ single “Closer”. I’ll never forget coming home from college in May of ‘94, and Houston now had a radio station—The Buzz—playing all Alternative format. Wasn’t there when I’d left for school, boom, was there when I got back...

    What do you do?

    I'm pretty weird about **** in general. I know everyone does it, but it's just skeeves me right out. I don't like talking about it or acknowledging that it's a human thing that happens. That having been said...I saw a freaking hilarious standup routine on this very topic a month or so back on...

    Best Albums of the 90s

    I swear the loudest show I was ever at was freaking Bob Dylan in Colorado Springs in '99. I had to walk outside the venue for awhile just to clear the ringing in my ears before Paul Simon came on. Just...that voice. CRANKED to bejeebus. And the jangly guitars cranked higher to drown out the...

    Best Albums of the 90s

    I saw Living Colour at the Unicorn in '93. Accidentally wandered in from behind the venue, ran into them just chilling by their bus and got to hang out and talk to them before the show. They were my favorite band in the world at the time, and that was a ****ing great show. Moshed and moshed...
