Can I get some love to col_mx. I suspect that this is the guy you just party with, like I get down to that SXSW, it's going to be on. He's going to help me talk Texan with the Texan women and everything will be beautiful. No but for real, I like when he challenges me, just like Junior, on the statements I'm making about film as my views as a film enthusiast continue to evolve. Col_mx is THAT guy, ya'll.

Ah, thanks ET, i appreciate that and i too enjoyed a spirited discussion and debate. I definitely enjoy going out, though I do not drink, but that does not mean I stay in. Yeah SXSW would be really awesome hopefully we can pull something off once everything settles down. Also, you have try some of the Tex-Mex down here, while I'm sure AZ has some great food Austin is just a bit different, or weird as we say down here. Thanks for being such a bright ball of energy around here, although we disagree on some things I do really appreciate the different perspective to help me examine issues in a different light.

We can only hope, since I don't follow MLB very much or MLS basically at all it has been a long drought for titles in Houston. Also not sure if people even consider the Astros's recent successes valid anymore regardless.

THAT is a tough one, because of how blatant it was. That's some scratched from the records type shit. Have the Dynamo ever won one? (Just looked.) They won back to back in the day!

Do you miss the days of the Oilers? I know that's basically a pro-climate change type of nickname, but it was very original. And Warren Moon was THAT GUY for a while. If the Cards get one in the next three years, I'm going to going parlay in Houston so I can thank them for helping us get our first.

I wasn't in to NFL enough when the Oilers were still a team, but did like them and especially liked their jerseys. Do not like the Titans now though because they are in division. Interested to see how this season plays out. WRs typically have trouble moving from one team to another the first season in general, and I don't think Hopkins will see nearly the same volume/target share that he got in Houston, but, presumably, his supporting cast is better, which should open things up for him even without seeing the same percentage of balls thrown in his direction.

Iím terrible at film reviews. I only watch films on a surface level and even then I canít even translate that to a full written paragraph. Iíve typed out sentences and deleted them more often then when I post.

But I always remember a post here from years ago from a teacher who said she always asks her students ďwhat did they notice?Ē. I always thought that was such a good opener for us who suck at film reviews. Itís a really easy way to get started. Iíve always appreciated that. Iím pretty sure it was Sandy but i could be wrong.  :)

I wish I could take credit for that, because it's great advice. I think it was probably OAD, since she's a literature professor. :)

I agree, that was probably One April Day.

OAD is great. Had the good fortune of meeting her in person.
