Never seen it..whats it about?cc

Basically it's about a conman that is released from prison with an agreement that he use his conman sensibilities to help the FBI catch other conmen.

The problem, for me, is that it's not compelling.

With Breaking Bad I DID NOT WANT TO WATCH IT.  Someone recommended it to me. I reluctantly watched the first episode...I was engrossed and could not stop myself from watching every single episode of the first 3 seasons...because that was all that available at the time on Netflix.

Compelling....meaning it was so good I was almost forced to watch...like I had no choice... I was THAT into it.

With White Collar I did not find it compelling and didn't even get through the 1st episode. I am intrigued that it got 4.5 stars though. Maybe it's THAT good to most people but for me personally it didn't resonate.

Breaking Bad is awesome. I'm always looking for shows with great story lines...

Was surfing Netflix for something different. Saw something which initially looked mind blowing but did not hold up on further inspection.

That something was called "White Collar".

Why did it initially seem "mind blowing"? Because people rate vids on NF and this one tied with the highest ratings I've EVER seen. 4.5 out of 5. On the same level with BB...which is saying something. Because even 4 out of 5 is VERY VERY hard earned on Netflix.

However....watched White Collar...did not find it engrossing or compelling...at least at anywhere near a BB level...

Anyone here at least seen White Collar and have some kind of impression on it?

By all accounts, Bob K. was a genuinely great guy, and I believe his story. Even if it isn't true, I doubt that HE was the one to concoct it.

However, Larry Scott told a story during an interview years ago describing Vince's misfortunes when his gym fell on hard times. Larry wanted to do something to try to raise some money and revive the business, and approached many of the celebrity clients Gironda had trained over the years.

Scott wouldn't mention many names, but claims that almost no one had any interest in helping Vince except...Eastwood.
That doesn't make me question Kennedy' story. It sounds like most guys from that era had a love/hate relationship with the Iron Guru.


Eastwood is cool.

634  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Multiple people hit in a shooting near the Empire State building on: August 25, 2012, 10:27:55 AM
This shooting may have been initially misreported. It sounds like they are now reporting that the gunman only shot 1 person and the rest were injured by ricochet or fragmented objects due to police fire.

http://www.cnn.com/2012/08/24/justice/new-york-empire-state/index.html?hpt=hp_t1

"Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said the bystanders were not hit directly by police, but rather the officers' struck "flowerpots and other objects around, so ... their bullets fragmented and, in essence, that's what caused the wounds."

Earlier Friday, Bloomberg told reporters that some of the wounded may have been inadvertently hit in the crossfire or by ricocheting bullets."

Tom Cruise is 50. Stallone is 66. This guy must be over 70. Anyone know the age?
636  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Lean isnt good tony hawk has alot of grey hair= proof on: August 23, 2012, 05:04:42 PM
Non-lean Jay Leno went grey 20 years ago.

Non mal nourished Schwarzenegger started going noticeable grey in the mid 1980s.

A lot of "celebrities" dye their hair anyway. Tony Hawk obviously doesn't. Fat or lean, it's hard to tell who's really grey haired with so much dye available.

You didn't read it properly, I'm talking about being THAT lean in the face, that everyone thinks I'm either dying of aids or a heroin junkie. I'm not talking normal lean here.

Apart from Christian Bale in the Machinist, I have yet to see a movie start with a face resembling what I'm talking about here.

Okay, I see your point. 50˘(in that photo) and Bale's Machinist's face look weak and depleted, like they're bodies are severely robbed of nutrients and calories. Movie stars and models are lean but healthy looking.

28" waist at 6'3" sounds like you may be below the 10-12% bodyfat you mention in your original post unless your fat is distributed differently than most. It sounds like you're already ripped in some areas but holding fat in others.

I know someone whose face is the last to lean up. Someone else was skinny but had what appeared to be gyno, but they got just a little leaner and totally lost the gyno look. It was like fat accumulated on their lower chest first and nowhere else on the body. The diversity of fat distribution on different individuals is something that should be detailed/researched in a book because it is vast and virtually unresearched compared to what's known/discussed about muscle length/shape etc...

Lonnie Lowery did an article on t-nation a while back on "spot reduction" and that he believed that there is a degree of truth to it:  http://www.t-nation.com/free_online_article/most_recent/spot_reduction_is_real_heres_how_to_do_it

I've read other articles that certain foods affect accumulation of fat on different parts of the body. All this stuff is at least worth looking into but it goes against conventional wisdom and controversial.
643  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Face getting too lean while dropping fat/weight on: August 21, 2012, 09:40:25 AM
Since when is a lean face a problem? Almost every male movie star in the world has a lean face.

This reminds me of tall guys posting that they wish they were shorter so that they could fill out their frame easier.

Bodybuilding is so screwed up.  Grin


I wish I was short, had a fat face, swirly varicose veins, a bloated yet muscular 45 inch waist, and severe stretch marks.  Grin

Australian Liberal Party is actually more republican than democratic TA. Not sure why they use the term liberal though.

Exactly, it's the A. Labor Party which is considered the "liberal" party.

Kind of like in the US there's the "deep south" and in Australia there's the "deep north".
