  1. Audible/Audio Books

    I have been enjoying Audible for the past year and a half and have about 35 books listened to. I'd like to share some suggestions and more importantly hear your favorites and recommendations. I'll post some of mine when I have some extra time but wanted to post this while I remembered.
  2. Audible/Audio Books

    Upon review, yes. But...if you see one you like I can say that Commune Book 2 is very very good. Of course you'd then need Commune book 1 but...value there to some.
  3. Ajayi goes on IR

    How about McCoy back, I really like him but this team is going nowhere this year.
  4. Audible/Audio Books

    Ready Player One was good.
  5. Audible/Audio Books

    Commune Book 1 is also on sale. 10 Hours of listening for $6. Great series...
  6. Audible/Audio Books

    Reckoners book 2 and 3 are on sale for $6 each, if anyone cares... I never use a credit on a book that costs less than $10 because 1 credit gets you a $50 book or a $2 book.

    supposedly one other thing too...

    "Gray: The Complete Collection" A woman alone on a hike when something happens and she finds herself very alone. I enjoyed this, however it is a slow burn (pun not intended) and can get a bit repetitive. Not a ton of action, just a scared person trying to survive with next to nothing and no-one. I could absolutely see someone getting bored with this one. I did at times but listened to the end and ended up enjoying it and I liked the ending though maybe seems tacked on. It worked, I invested some time listening to this one and I'm glad I did. Any females in your life that like survival stories with a female lead might enjoy it of the action heavy choices for EOTWAWKI stories.
  9. Audible/Audio Books

    "After it Happened" is an EOTWAWKI story that takes place in England and narrated by RC Bray, one of the best and one of my favorites. It's follows an ever growing list of survivors as the try to make their new lot in life. Action at times, how-to planning and prepping at times, smart, fun to think along with them and what would I do or do I agree with this course. It's 3 books, or publisher packs, 1-2 together, 3-4 etc... Some soldier types but a lot of normal people making their way. It was very good and worth the credit.

    Listened to "Commune" book 1 and 2. Very popular book and it is very good. I liked book 1 and immediately got #2 when I finished. As is my taste, another end of civilization type book, flu, EMP, zombies, fungal infections, whatever causes the end of world event, works for me, Smart, likable characters who really dive into what to do, how to do it, where to go to do it. Rebuilding the world, or their slice of it in great detail. It's described a lot as a "preppers" how to guide. I wouldn't say that, but I just love listening to reasonable and realistic characters having smart planned out ideas and discussions. I don't always agree with choices but they have their reasons as characters go. Main character is mysterious and likable soft spoken tough guy. I recommend this one too.
  14. Audible/Audio Books

    Listened to "The Girl With All The Gifts". I loved it. Post apocalyptic zombie type story. It's also a movie on Amazon prime, same title. I liked the movie as well, very good. It's a British film and maybe doesn't have a Hollywood budget but the story is tremendous and the cast is strong. No major changes from book to film. Finty Williams narrates mostly kids books but this deviation is so strong, her narration is very strong and I like her British voice a lot. The book is written as if she relating a story to you. I was pleasantly surprised having not heard of this book before and I am currently listening to a companion book, "The Boy on The Bridge". Recommended.
  15. Is This Speaking On Someone's Behalf?

    Whether you speak on someone's behalf would be between you and that person. He has, presumably, no knowledge on who's behalf you speak. I do think he is taking offense to the questioning of the clarity of a rule he might have authored. Likewise, he may also mean you have no official proxy in terms of the league and other owners. I think you speak on behalf of the league proper, or in other words, the best interest or in aid of the league. In that sense, I do indeed think you speak on behalf of the league and the negative connotation he assigns to that speaks towards his attitude. Try again, rephrase, "I read this rule one way, please ask around, I think others might as well." To answer your question, yes you did but it isn't a bad thing, quite the opposite.
  16. Who do you think/hope your team gets in the draft

    Rosen, Mayfield, Darnold, whomever they rank the best. Pay the price, trade up, get the guy. Fill the remaining holes in 2019 with our 90 million projected cap space and I think we'll still have a few good pick this year. Very excited for this draft.
  17. I also was hoping 2 rounds would be cool
  18. I'll pick for Buffalo
  19. Never been there but if booty means awful, yeah it looks booty.
  20. NFL twitter account says "Hey, Northeast Iowa, no better 'za than Two Ton Tony's. Order by halftime for some free breadsticks" The next 400 tweets are listing pizza places by region? It would different I'll say that.
  21. You might get some push back from local pizza places that pay for time during football breaks. One local place here dominates the local football commercial content. Network affiliates might also have a word about losing a big client who no longer has to buy time with the shoutouts. Also who would choose these places? Correct answer is nobody, it would be sold, which is what happens currently on a local level BUT with the money going to the NFL and not local broadcast stations.
  22. Carson Palmer retiring

    He made me some money as a Bengal. Always liked to watch him throw a pretty ball. Just looked like a QB should.

    Finished "The Disaster Artist" and thought it was excellent and very funny. I do think knowing the movie "The Room" makes it much better and would recommend watching it somehow first. On its own it is very very funny. The author Greg, does a wonderful impression of Tommy in the audiobook which is critical to the humor. Everything about the making of is great. The relationship between Greg and Tommy is 90% interesting and 10% a little slow at times. Without even trying there is a little mystery aspect to the book and at times it is genuinely sad. Recommended!!! I'm trying to decide between "Mistborn" or "The Way of Kings" Anyone with any help here? I have also downloaded "Ready Player One" because it sounds good, is going to be a movie shortly, and got a ton of good reviews.
  24. Audible/Audio Books

    I'm listening to The Disaster Artist which is a book about the making of the movie The Room. It has reached cult status like Rocky Horror with audiences participating in the film as it plays. The book is a movie staring James Franco and it too looks to be very good. It's on my list to see while most are flocking to Star Wars. First if you're unfamiliar with The Room you should seek i out. Especially if you like movies so bad they are good. Second, the book is very funny and interesting. I'm only 2 hours in and if it changes I'll post that but so far it is quite frankly amazing! I think it helps to think back to the movie when he describes something in the book but works as a stand alone too. Love the ideas from you guys and hope to find some more great stuff!!!
