I had a conversation with a friend over the weekend and to the question you posed is the point we settled on.. I am not too sure who can keep up with the Cavs in a 7 game series. They are definitely tinkering a bit now and I feel the D will turn up come playoff time.

The brilliant and often enigmatic mind of David Lynch you just don't know what you are going to get.. I am excited for the continuation for sure especially knowing that those who were a part of the original are on board.  Should be good..

The DV seems passive and misused at times therefore I choose not to use it.  With that said, I wholeheartedly disagree.  Now granted we are all most likely here for our shared interest in tOSU athletics, but sports do exist outside of that stratosphere.  I am an ardent baseball fan and IMO when it comes to other sports its not even close.

Mitchell - I am very sorry for your loss.  I am not sure I will be able to add much more than what has already been suggested, however it is important that you find healthy outlets as you manage this situation. Seeing as you have solicited guidance here is a great start.  Keep seeking those positive outlets that help you.  I wish you the best as you navigate through this and please feel free to reach out at any time.

This is good news.. I have followed the press about this game since I heard about it after an E3 event.. All of the games you mentioned I have enjoyed playing, so this one sounds like its living up to the hype.

Great bump to an excellent original post that I didn't catch the first time around.  I was too young to see the original airing as I was probably 9 at the time, but by the time I was the mature age of 12-13 my music prowess had expanded and Nirvana was definitely on my radar.  

I know what I am listening to this morning... Cheers!

I think JT is very ordinary. There is no denying his records, but we continue to have the same conversation about his talents and growth and end up in the same place.. It is what it is..

Okay, I gotcha.  I have heard nothing but great things about his performance.  I am with you on the swearing - I have a pretty crude sense of humor and not much typically offends me, but movies that take it too far gets tiresome. 

Thanks for the input.  Cheers!

I have heard great things about Manchester By the Sea, however haven't worked myself up to watch it.  I am gathering that while its a fantastic film it is probably painful / heart-breaking at times.  I have to be in a certain mood for those, I guess.

Moonlight is simply fantastic and one of the most authentic films I have ever seen.  Arrival was great - The original score was fantastic and brilliantly set the mood throughout.  The same composer for Sicario which was another great movie, although I am not too sure how 'new' that is.  I was surprised by how much I enjoyed Tom Ford's Nocturnal Animals.  I also enjoyed Paterson - which is certainly a character piece with great writing.

The second I received word that his signing was official, everyone member of my family and close friends received a link to this clip... My wife eventually took my phone away so I'd let it go... Man, I cannot wait for baseball to begin
