  1. From the title of this post it looks like we have another victim of "autocorrect". Made me look though ... Well, except that there was no bomb. There's never a bomb.
  2. Maybe they should start reporting when there isn't gunfire or crime somewhere in the city. Just a thought ...
  3. There's also been a structure fire and a camper fire, both in the Jungle within the last month. Sounds like the Jungle is becoming a pretty rough place lately.
  4. Bicycle Sharing program Could Be Coming To Elmira

    Elmira had a extensive program similar to this when I was a kid. You would have a bike, then someone else would take it. I think we called it "stealing" back then.
  5. Spoiler alert. Go no further if you have never seen this movie! My money is on Qu'ra returning in the final Star Wars, if not in person, at least as being identified as Rey's mother. But who is Rey's father. It would be interesting if it turned out to be Han Solo, as he and Qi'ra were pretty close in this film. Interesting, but creepy, since Kylo Ren is Han's son making Rey Kylo's half sister. Since Star Wars has already gone down that road with Luke & Leia, I doubt that will be the case here. At the end of this film, Qu'ra was on her way to meet up with Darth Maul. Perhaps Darth Maul is Rey's father, explaining Rey's strong ties to the force. But if one looks at the history of Darth Maul, by this time in the storyline he has already been cut in half and is on a robotic lower half (see the Clone Wars film). Not the kind of equipment one would need to sire a Jedi I suppose, but perhaps a Sith has other, less conventional means of reproducing. Obviously, I still can't wait to see the reveal of Rey's lineage.
  6. Got to see this film this weekend at the awesome Heights theater. Nearly constant action throughout, it was a great ride, very thrilling. Having the characters from the Guardians of the Galaxy series in this film was a treat, as they are such fun to watch. Now I have to say they warned anyone who saw this film not to give away the ending, and they weren't kidding. I never saw it coming. All I can say is that when the first ending credit hit the screen, every little kid in that theater jumped out of their seat and screamed "NOOOOO!!!" My wife an I always sit through the credits because, well just because (think "shawarma"). Most people headed for the doors because of the ending, but we soldiered on. At the very, very end, there was a short clip that added just a tiny bit to the story. Worth staying for. All in all, a great film with a guaranteed sequel. There had better be a sequel, otherwise "NOOOOOO!!"
  7. I say throw his ass in jail ... ... Oh, wait ...
  8. Reminder: It's been shark week on the SciFi Channel. It culminates tonite with the premiere of what can only be referred to Sharknado 6. I shit you not, this will be a special evening! They promise that this will be the very last one, and aside from the hungry sharks flying out of swirling vortexes of water shredding celebrities, this episode adds the curious element of time travel. Looks like they've finally run out of creative ways to dismember Tara Reid. We shall see. Starts at 8 PM with an encore presentation afterward. Full review here later.
  9. I vote for the Old Farmer's Almanac!
  10. Ha ha, looks like no one admitted to ownership of the firearm. The great Carnac predicts there will also be a couple of charges of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
  11. This story sounds shady to me. Really, really shady ...
  12. #1 - EVEN GREATER! Of course now the cat is out of the bag. Glad I make my own wine as this may drive prices for wine and tastings up. Who knows, in a couple of years Catlin may make the top ten list for top wine regions We don't have lakes, but we got ponds, bonfires and damn good wine!
  13. Santulli Responds To Mayor's Recent Newspaper Column

    Ahaha, she missed that you referred to to as two too. Wow, that was a mouthful ...
  14. Two Arrested As Fugitives From Justice

    Wow. It's hard to believe they got the ages right on either of these two people.
  15. Anyone remember the bad guy "Willie Lopez" from the movie "Ghost"?
  16. Trail Cam Delights

    This "moose" showed up on camera a few weeks ago. Eight pointer still in velvet:
  17. Trail Cam Delights

    We used to have a trail cam topic on the old sight, and it was always pretty cool to see the images that these cameras capture when no one is around. I'll start. Caught this image on one of my cams up at my cabin this past weekend. Places to go, things to eat ...
  18. Dude! I watched it twice! You know, so I could be accurate in my reporting ...
  19. As they say on Rotten Tomatoes, these Sharknado episodes are so bad, they're good. Sure enough, the newest (and final) episode did not disappoint. Tara Reid's April character was down to just her head remaining the last time we saw her. But in this episode Fin (yep, that's his name, I didn't make it up) and his compatriots go back in time to the Jurassic era and find the real April still in one piece. She's a pterodactyl pilot fighting the first sharknado. By the end of the show, there was an army of robotic April's, April's head, the real April, and an evil April. I know, I know, sounds confusing. And contrived. And absurd. And just plain stupid. Well it was, but that's what makes it so great. I'd have to say the most romantic moment in the film was when Fin kisses April's head on the lips while it is in a shark's mouth. (Yeah, that's right, romance! Sorry you missed it now aren't you.) Anyways, lots of action, and history, and cool storyline. Lots of cool cameo appearances including Dee Snider, Gilbert Gottfried, Tori Spelling, Alaska Thunderfuck, Christopher Knight & Bernie Kopell. Sadly, Al Roker was strangely missing from this go around. I noticed, because he has been in the last 4 previous episodes. So, if you get a chance to see it, go ahead. But be warned: you won't be able to look away. And you'll never get those two hours of your life back ...
  20. "Curveball" Music Festival Cancelled

    Well, in the absence of a Phish festival, I thought I would throw this up here to remind everybody that 49 (yep 4-9) years ago there was another small music gathering in upstate NY: Woodstock. This schedule puts things from that weekend in perspective. Well except for the storms, I guess storms were not in the schedule then either :
  21. "Curveball" Music Festival Cancelled

    You know, the irony of this whole situation is amusing. Too much water, ergo, no Phish ...
  22. "Curveball" Music Festival Cancelled

    Seems like this decision could have been made days ago. To wait until the fans are at the gate is just stupid. There's going to be some really pissed off people.
  23. One way or another, this crook will end up in jail ...
