  1. Sounds a lot like Bear McCreary's work from BSG. Particularly his scores from Razor and Blood & Chrome. I like it.
  2. Thanks. I've only watched DD and JJ; still haven't managed to get to Luke Cage or Iron Fist.
  3. I'm blanking here.. what is "PM?" I know there's also Luke Cage (not listed)...
  4. You say that, but in the event of Divorce all of that **** is going to her. Bank it.
  5. Sure thing, Sally. J/k, it's all good. If you like the taste you like the taste. For me it's not so much the fruit flavor per se (I love a good Saison) as much as it the need to actually add the fruit to the beer after it's already been brewed to make it palatable. It's the same idea with steak. If you have a good one you shouldn't need to add A1 or Heinz 57.. you should be able to enjoy and appreciate it sans condiment. To each their own however. I really don't look down on people that throw a line in their Corona or like a Bud Light (ok maybe just a little on that one). Cheers my fellow Falcons fans. This is our weekend. Enjoy what you will and revel in the tears of Patriots fans everywhere come Sunday.
  6. Can't stand IPAs myself. Everything is way over hopped for my taste these days. I prefer a nice, dark, malty ale. Edit to add: Fruit in your beer? Seriously?
  7. Sweetwater and Monday Night Brewery are probably the two largest locals.
  8. That's one helluva hyperlink...
  9. And for the record, Bud Light Platinum is considered a Lager though there are many that wouldn't classify it as any kind of "beer" at all. It's pretty terrible.
  10. There are all kinds of "ales." German, Belgian, American..? Black, IPA, Stout..? Pale, Dark, Bitter..? Ale and Lager are the two most basic types of beer. From there you have to narrow down to style and region. My recommendations: New Beligium Fat Tire is easy to find, reasonable in price and pretty well done. It's an American style ale (despite the brewery name). Chimay has three (I think) that are color coded: Blue (Belgiian Dark Ale), Red (Belgian Dubbel), and White (Belgian Tripel). I've seen the Blue at Costco before.. haven't had luck finding them in the grocery, but even modest liquor stores should have all three. There's also Newcastle (English Brown Ale) which is readily available at any grocery, but comes in clear glass which isn't the best for preserving the beer; in other words you may wind up with skunked bottles. Samuel Smiths Nut Brown is FANTASTIC, but is hit or miss at the grocery and is more expensive. You can find it at any decent liquor store. Then there are the German dunkels, hefes, and weisbeers. I'm not as boned up on those and don't have any particular recommendations other than the Gordon Biersch Marzen which I do really like. I've never seen that in a grocery or liquor store though.
  11. Samuel Smith's Nut Brown Ale to start. Once that's finished I'll finish off what's left of the Lazy Magnolia Southern Pecan Brown Ale.
  12. Feel free to post it if you can find the numbers. I haven't seen it. I have seen DVOA for both Pats and Falcs. DVOA for Pats defense shows adjusted ranking #7 rather than #1. DOVA for Falcs offense shows adjusted ranking #2 rather than #1. Those are DVOA through Week 19; haven't seen anything inclusive of the AFC/NFC championship games. Regular season DVOA showed Pats defense adjusted ranking #16 and Falcs offense adjusted ranking #1. Obviously the two playoff games for Pats greatly (Hou and Pit, both with highly regarded defenses) aided their adjusted defensive ranking whereas they hurt, marginally, the Falcs offensive adjusted ranking.
  13. I believe this is what DVOA is for.. want to look at those stats again?
