Reedus and Rooker are both great, I think Scott Wilson does a good job too. Not a huge fan of Lincoln or Steven Yeun though.

1. Savages was awesome. I recently bought the Directors Cut which, from what I noticed on first watch-through, adds a cool scene involving BDT's family at a little-league baseball game(yells at son about playing baseball correctly, then berates his wife for letting their daughter dress like a slooty slu), adds a scene later on where the wife talks back to BDT and he smacks her around, and adds a third scene where John Travolta visits his bed-ridden wife in the hospital. It was a pretty sad/depressing scene.

Loved the movie. When I was at the theater with my buddy we were both in shock at the ending but gave eachother knucks and said it was good. Then the other stuff happens and we left shaking our heads that they did what they did.

2. Walking Dead is a fun show. 1st season was good, 1-1.5 was terrible, 1.5-2 was good, 2-2.5 was great, but 2.5 onwards so far has been a disappointment.

But I'll just say that I've read the comics up to the end of this arc, and if they follow it even loosely it will be a fantastic ending to the season. Add in some spoilers I read on another site, and I bet fans of the first season will be ****ing in their pants soon enough.

Saw this version too. Tried to add a humanity aspect to him. Didn't work too well.

Also regarding Walking Dead, when the hell is Carl gonna lose HIS eye? I read the comics too. I figure with how the writers are adapting things (yet out of order) it will be somewhat poetic (for better or worse) that it happens in the final battle with the Governor.

Kinda weird how Rick and Tyreese haven't become besties yet.

First thing you think of; Your highest priority.

I haven't had a bed frame for 10-12 years. I've always just had the box-spring on the floor and the mattress on top of that. It is glorious. At the end of the day, tired as ****, you just fall down into a heaven filled with 40 virgins and the wise and powerful words of Allah the great in your ears. Or something.

But my girlfriend would not have any of that and forced us to get a ****ty 20 year old frame that creaks with Every. Single. Movement.

I'm seriously on the verge of just dismantling it and saying it snapped or something next time she's gone for more than an hour. I almost cannot handle it anymore. So brutal. I wake myself up at night just turning over. Having sex is like living in the band room of a high school. Terrible. I hate bed frames. So ****ing useless. And expensive. And space wasting.

More useless than Andrea on Walking Dead.

And that's saying something.

My god, you echo my words! We had the box spring and matress on the floor, perfect height for so much stuff... no shaking and jumping around, no getting my shorts caught on some god damned bed post every time I get up in the middle of the night to use the can.

I MISS the box spring on the floor, SO BAD.

Yeah, I don't have a bed frame either. Just a nice, comfy mattress that I've improved by raising it from the floor by some 2 feet or so. Easier to get in and out from bed with my back problems and all that.

I tend to just nap off in my sofa though, it seats two but has quite a lot of room, and I use it instead of an office chair whenever I use the PC or PS3.

Speaking of nodding off, it's 6 AM and the bus leaves in 1 hour 20 minutes. Greeeeeeat. And I'm frickin' TIRED, but can't sleep because I never wake up to an alarm clock. Ever.

A friend of mine kind of had a depression problem from like 7th-10th grade. He was my neighbor and my oldest friend. We kind of grew apart during the latter years of his depression, but he got himself out of it by turning to bunnies.

He now breeds them, shows them, and sells them. He owns over 30 of them for show and rotates them through breeding programs and sells the babies for, wait for it, $200-$300 each. He seemingly has 3-4 babies every month, if not more, and sells all of them. Then some of his "champion" bunnies go for double that, sometimes in the $600+ range.

It is ridiculous. He graduated high school last year(2012) and has yet to get a full time or even part time job. Just keeps breeding bunnies, going to national competitions(all over the U.S.), and making cash. I'm kind of jealous, won't lie.

The only time I've seen him distraught since he got into the competitive rabbit breeding, was when he was cleaning cages and left his gararge door open to let everything dry quickly, and another neighbor's dog got out, ran over, through the garage, and tore up two of the bunnies. The dog's owner had to pay him $300, and the bunnies' owner claimed that was half price. Just...

Caveat: I grew up very poor, on a farm, in Iowa...

When I was a kid, I used to breed and raise these:


...along with quite a few other types of livestock.

Several of my stocks offspring were shown by others to Championships which increased the value of further sales. At that time, a "show quality" Dutchy was bringing in $100 per.

Going back to the traffic/driver discussion in the now-closed News thread, agree with whoever said that Chicago drivers have a weird aggression that only exists in cars. Washington DC drivers are pretty bad as well but that might be because of all the transplants.

Congratulations!

In other news, my lacrosse team had a spaghetti dinner at a sorority house tonight. Decent spaghetti, great bread sticks, good cookies. Then each player had to do a small presentation on a raised stage saying Name, Home town, year, major, single/taken, boxers/briefs, and then spell our name with our butts by dancing on the stage. Ugh.

Decent night.

Lol, they're pretty anti social.

They don't like to cuddle at all, and they run away frequently.

Nice. I hope to lose some weight this summer when I have more time. Pretty swamped right now between classes, homework, and a part time job 5 nights a week.
