Off-Topic Discussion / Non-Eastwood Trivia
« on: July 04, 2017, 08:20:05 AM »
I was at trivia last night,  and you could see some people using their phones. So all the competitive spirit was drained from the night. So, don't use it here either. As with the Eastwood trivia threads on the board, if you answer one, post one. It can be any type of trivia question, but since we have a very slow board, if no one answers in a couple of days, feel free to post the answer and another question. And if you're not sure of the answer, it's fine to take a stab at it anyway. You won't lose points if you get the answer wrong 'cause no one's keeping score here.

So for the 4th of July, one of the questions we had last night was this:  Although three U.S. presidents have died on the 4th of July, name the only U.S. president born on the 4th of July. Hint - he was born July 4th, 1872.  Also, if you can name any of the U.S. presidents who died on the 4th of July, go ahead and name them for bonus points (that don't matter).

Is anyone else concerned about how BIG Amazon is getting? I heard the news this weekend that they purchased Whole Foods, and alarms went off in my head. This article expresses my concerns better than I can:

Off-Topic Discussion / Songs that strike a chord
« on: April 24, 2017, 09:36:18 AM »
Little bit of a pun there in the title. ;)

This one always gets to me... 

<a href="https://www.youtube.com/v/1umEXpGHc0E" target="_blank" class="new_win">https://www.youtube.com/v/1umEXpGHc0E</a>

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1umEXpGHc0E

It's such a sad song about how little we know when we're young, and the mistakes we make... and that some just don't even make it through those years at all. I love 90s music. It was such a dark period -- unlike the pop-sy syntho sounds of the 80's, we're now diving into more melancholic lyrics and sounds and sometimes even the grungiest hardest songs have the most poignant lyrics. 

Add the ones that get to you here...

This is the place to post about the original Scarface (1932) and the remake Scarface (1983).  Tell us what you think of the films as you watch them, or wait until after Week 2 to do a comparison. Which do you like better? Strengths, weaknesses, or just talk about anything you want.

The CEWB Movie Club / CEWB Movie Club - Who wants in?
« on: October 26, 2016, 11:44:09 PM »
Who here is missing not having the Clint Eastwood Challenge, or watching movies together and commenting on them?

It's a tough time of year to start something new, with the holidays approaching, but I was thinking we might be able to do something at a slower pace, that would be fun and give us something to do together as a group. Since we've just watched all the Clint movies, it would be non-Clint movies. I'm thinking one movie a week, and we'd have themes. Members who sign up will take turns nominating the movies that we'll watch. It will be like a book club, but for movies.

Here's my idea for what it might look like. A theme that I'd be interested in starting off with would be Classic Movie vs. Remake.  I just watched The Manchurian Candidate from 1962, and then followed it up with the remake from 2004. They were very different, and it was interesting to watch the differences, not just in cast, but in plot to make the modern version work in today's era. It was also interesting to see the great acting from both casts, and what worked, and what didn't. So I thought that might be fun to watch together, and discuss. So, we could do Week 1 the 1962 version, Week 2, the 2004 version.

Then, whoever signs up as being interested here would consider the theme (Classic vs. Remake) and we'd put them on the schedule.  When everyone has had an opportunity to pitch the films for that theme, we might choose another theme... maybe 1970 horror films.  We could do this for quite some time.

So, sign up here if you're interested in joining in. If you're interested, post here, and then also post your pitch for what Classic Movie & Remake you'd like us to put on the schedule. We can start this in a few weeks, and I'll make the schedule far enough in advance for everyone to track down the movies we'll be watching.

Off-Topic Discussion / Happy birthday, AKA23!
« on: October 26, 2016, 03:33:01 PM »
For your birthday -- I whipped up this  CHEESELESS Cheesecake.



This is actually my blog. I made that cake. That's my recipe. Those are my dishes. I'm really very talented, and VEGAN. Yes, I'm vegan on top of everything else. I'm ultra special.  ;D

http://www.thisrawsomeveganlife.com/2013/03/vanilla-chocolate-chunk-cheesecake-with.html

(And if you believe that, I've got lots more where that came from.)

Happy birthday!

I do have a prize for finishing the Eastwood Challenge. I've been a bit backed up lately, but I WILL get to it soon! And everyone else who hasn't gotten their prizes yet, I promise.... soon.

Off-Topic Discussion / 5 Things I Only Like
« on: October 02, 2016, 12:28:31 AM »
This is where the blank face smiley comes in:   :blank:

I realized tonight as I was writing someone about our personalities, that I've always been a "love" or "hate" kinda guy. I love many things. I love fresh green beans that aren't overcooked, especially when they're sauteed with the right kind of sauce... whether it's Italian (fresh tomatoes, garlic, olive oil), or Szechuan (which is a mystery to me, but so amazing).  I love Jersey corn, fresh husked, boiled just right, with lots of real butter, salt and pepper. I love the perfect steak... medium rare. I love looking at someone I love... beautiful women. Eyes that have substance, and show dimension. I hate many things. I hate lying. I hate false people. I hate lima beans. I hate broccoli with a passion. I hate anything in the cabbage family... cabbage, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, kale.

It occurred to me tonight that one of my problems is feeling meh about ...... anything.

So I struggled to come up with a few things that I neither love, nor hate. These are a a list of five things I ONLY like. Join in, this can be a long thread... or it could be really boring. But, for the record, let it be known, that I only like......
    Pork chops
    Wham! (the band)
    (this is REALLY hard)
    Seeing new posts on the Clint Board which turn out to be about movies I haven't seen or don't care to see
    Watching golf on TV
    Celery
