    a great place on a great lake
  1. I'm with Lotusguy and Eric. I grew up on Scorsese's movies. I could not stand this one. It needed a serious edit, but that would've only shortened the misery. In particular, I found De Niro's performance to be one-dimensional -- awful. I hate to be a downer, but really, I'm sorry to have seen it. I think this picture proves the point. The Godfather is 30 minutes shorter. The Godfather Part 2 is like 5 minutes shorter. And I don't think anyone ever had to do this in order to tolerate watching them.
  2. Saw the topic, and my first thought was Dark Side as well. The documentaries about it in the last 10 or so years have made me appreciate it even more. There are some other albums of equal significance, but I like this one the best.
  3. I smoked over a pack per day almost every single day for 10 years -- from ages 15 to 25. I quit for a couple of hours or days several times, never more than about five days at a time. I now haven't smoked a cigarette in over 12 years, and I'm pretty confident I never will again. The posters who've already said that the way to quit smoking cigarettes is just to quit smoking cigarettes are correct. When you are ready, you will just stop it. Until you reach that point, it likely won't take because it's a habit and if you're really a committed smoker, it's one you've probably accepted into your persona. How do you really quit smoking? Make it not a part of who you are. That means stop smoking when you wake up. Stop smoking with your coffee. Stop smoking on the way to work or school. Stop taking breaks all day to smoke. Stop smoking on the way home from work or school. Stop smoking after eating dinner. Stop smoking while drinking. Stop smoking after *******. Stop smoking right before going to bed. Your day generally will be much the same as when you were smoking. Except you won't be smoking before, during, or after every single thing you do. You'll feel much better, and you'll smell much better. Good luck.
  4. "Rustling trees, babbling brooks and the pursuit of fun...these are truly some of the most important things in life." But -- and it goes without saying -- those things certainly are not more important than cigars with perfect feet.
  5. My wife and I got struck by lightning because we were stupid and hiked into a thunderstorm on top of a mountain. We are lucky that a badly broken wrist and a little memory loss is all that resulted. There were multiple strikes all around us for several minutes. We could have been hit more than once. Lesson learned? Yeah. But I had always been curious -- what's it like to be right where the lightning strikes? Turns out that it's no place to be. It hurts, it stinks (quite literally, it smells bad), and generally I found the whole thing rather terrifying until it was over.
  6. 1999 had problems with construction. Several years later, HSA opened the boxes and revisited (revisado) the contents to find out if the box contained tent pegs. Since those cigars were caught and released, they should be okay. I've never bought such a box -- how have they smoked?
  7. I have a Panasonic plasma, and I love it. People consistently comment on the sharpness of the picture and the quality of the color. When I buy another set, it will be another Panasonic.
  8. My thought on the HUPC is that there are several better representations of the Upmann profile (which I quite like) -- SW, No. 2, and Mag 46. Generally, I prefer many other PCs to the HUPC.
