Yep, see at the end, a "copywright 'The Late Show'" tag.

Surprised nobody has mentioned Amadeus. Took GF there for V-Day a few years back and it made me look rather good. Then again, we broke up that summer, so...
Seriously, though, Amadeus is a quaint, intimate and very nice place. Gratzi and Chop House are a little more upscale, but I think Amadeus is just as nice, but a bit more charm and smaller check.

Yep, you can specify Twitter accounts to have pop up as notifications or even text messages. You, of course, have to be selective so your phone isn't always blowing up. I have 3ish baseball accounts that I have notifications sent to me so I can have as much of an edge as possible in fantasy baseball. :)

I'm neither for nor against piping, but I really think those uniforms in that picture look awful. Why are there stripes on 4 players' sleeves but not the fifth?

Thank god you could see the cars driving on the left side of the street to confirm the video was mirrored horizontally. Otherwise my head was gonna explode trying to figure out how they were walking west on Liberty in front of the mural but with the Mich Theatre behind them.

Would this really be a plot twist? I think the bigger twist would be if it WAS his son. They very obviously have alluded to the kid NOT being his son. Plus the fact that he is all ginger and what not.
I thought it was pretty obvious that the kid is NOT Colin Ferrel's character's son.

I don't disagree. But I think part of the problem is The Internet (tm) read soooo much into soooo many minor details that weren't necessarily meant to have meaning.
Yes, there were some things that were red herrings and that's frustrating. But, some things weren't meant to me uber-analyzed, yet they were, and thus there were let downs.

Meetings should never last 30 min long. Unless we're talking more like tape sessions or something instructional. Meetings are the bane of everyone's existence

The MBB video makes me want to run through a brick wall and box a guy out. This is awesome stuff.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I chuckled. The shame chick||
The shame chick was bordering on funny. Luckily Lena Headley's performance (I guess her neck-down body sub as well) was excellent.
I thought the scene was almost unbearably long, but then I realized what they had done. In that one scene, Cersei goes from being a monsterous villian to a sympathetic victim. The look in Headley's eyes as FrankenMountain picks her up shows that she wants revenge and suddenly the viewer (at least me) is rooting for her to get it.

Definitely a recruiting tool and a beautiful one at that.
This is the kind of 21st century thing Dave Brandon always was yammering about. I don't know if he had a hand in the beginnings of it. If he did, he finally got something right. If he didn't, well irony is sweet isn't it.

Book reader here.
Loved the finale. The Stannis stuff was immensely satsifying, yet sad. If you go back to episode 9, you know he immediately regretted the sacrifice (great acting) and the attempt to take Winterfell was almost like a "fuck it, I deserve to lose, let's do this." It was cool having Brienne finish the deed.
As much as I don't want Reek to "save" Sansa, that push off the ledge was hilarious! The sound crew made the perfect *splat* to go with it.
I'm okay with the Arya stuff. The show has to pare down the characters a bit, so I'm fine she killed Trant. Though, gosh it was brutal. There's going to be recrecussions from this along with her blindness, methinks.
DORNE.... fuck. So disappointing. I thought they had set it up for Doran's bad ass scene from the books and then he's nowhere to be seen! And what about Trystane!? Why would they murder an innocent girl on top of giving Jaimie a hostage?! Unless the boat turns back and they take Jaimie and Bronn hostage again? Who's driving that boat? Did Doran approve of the murder? What the fuck. This is a mess.
Mereen stuff... meh. I'm not excited about one of the best characters getting stuck in Mereen. It wasn't fun with Dany, I suspect it won't be fun with Tyrion. And now Dany is captured by the Dothraki... where's Drogon to save her again?
Cersei's walk of shame was good. I wish it happened an episode or two ago and we were able to get ADwD's epilogue - it would have been a nice balance to "For the Watch."
"For the Watch" was good. Fuck olly and all. I like the book version of Thorne better, but I understand him in the show. He's still doing what he thinks he needs to do. But I was SOOOOOO hoping that right before the cut to black we'd see Jon's eyes roll back, ala Bran. In the books they set up the warging so much that I (as someone who is awful at predicting things and picking up foreshadowing) just assumed that Jon wargs into Ghost at the end. I actually thought it was almost a given, but I guess not. Seems that Mel is back at Castle Black for a reason, though...
As for next season:
Jon Snow dead for realsies? Answer quickly please.
Davos to White Harbor, pls kthx.
The Vale gets involved?
Man, I just can't get very exciting about anything in Essos. I guess Euron is coming, back that just means a lot of nothing happening.

I actually thought the kids in Jurassic World were great. Obviously, it's a different dynamic with two boys, but the bigger age gap made for a different dynamic. I thought both young actors played their roles very well.

It will be interesting to see if a return to relevance brings back crowds for noon games. In 2006 we had plenty of noon games and it was always packed before kick. We were also #2 overall heading into OSU.
Now the social media age has come pretty far since 2006, but I guarantee the drinking/partying isn't any wilder. Just wake up early and start drinking by 7 kids! Then you get your nice mid-afternoon nap before heading back out! It's perfect!

Is liking Noon games the WD equivalent of hipsters wearing porn staches?
|2 weeks 6 days ago||That's exactly what I want to||
That's exactly what I want to do: not increase my life style, just use that money to invest in my Roth IRA (maybe a bit more in my 401k). And I can always withdraw contributions to it, so it's a safe way to go.

I agree, that's why I might hedge my bets: Get in the program and still throw extra at the loans. I would hope, if the program disappears, they'd gradfather those already in the program and let them finish. To not do that would be damn near (if not really) a crime.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||That's awesome. I was||
That's awesome. I was putting about 33% of take-home pay towards income - wish I could have gotten up to 50%, but I was able to knock out $20k in principle in about 3 years, which is pretty good.
However, now I've broadened the perspective a bit and I think putting more towards retirement, locking in a low mortgage rate are mathematically better moves. Add on that a big chunk of my loans could be forgiven, and it seems the financially prudent move.
But I love hearing stories about people knocking out their student loans! It can be done and is done all the time!

|2 weeks 6 days ago||That's kind of what I was||
That's kind of what I was worried about. I changed my repayment plan often, but instead of paying an additional amount on my auto-debits, I would just submit an additional payment. If neither of those was larger than the standard 10-year payment, I don't think they'll qualify. It's semantics, but we're talking a massive gov't program here.
I'll definitely do my best to try to get them qualified, but am not getting my hopes up.
