Re: RIP: Gene Wilder ..

My favorite bit from Blazing Saddles:

Jim: Look at my hand.
[raises hand and holds it level]
Bart: Steady as a rock.
Jim: [raises his other hand, which is violently trembling] Yeah, but I shoot with this one.

Re: The Kettering Incident

Well, I marathoned it this wknd. This damn well better be a series with at least a second season because if it's just a mini-series and this was all there is to it they sure left a lot of unanswered questions.

"Based on a true story." Yeahhhh, I don't think so.

Re: Games of Yore....

I've got a Wing Commander in my closet somewhere. It's on floppies so I doubt I'll be playing it again as I don't expect I'll be using a floppy drive anytime soon.

Re: Stranger Things - Summer's Biggest Hit .

There's a fine line between "homage" and "derivative".

As for the quality of the original material, many films from our youth that actually weren't so great may still be regarded fondly. It wasn't a great [more]

Re: Foam Roller Exercises

Yes, I use one all the time.

In the book Herrera recommends some of things you're talking about, such as rolling slowly and resting on knots and sore spots; laying on it lengthwise is also one of the positions in the book. [more]

Re: Foam Roller Exercises

Sounds like progress!

Yes, I think so. I don't want to jump the gun, it's early yet, but I've come to know my body pretty well over the last couple of years dealing with this and there seems to be less tightness already in [more]

Re: Foam Roller Exercises

On suggestion by my physical therapist (who helped me greatly with neck & back issues), I've used a foam roller for tightness around my hip joints, but not pelvic floor. I hated it--too painful, and I tried 2 different [more]

I don't know Isa Herrera's background, or how she is regarded. What do you know about her?

Foam Roller Exercises

Anybody here use a foam roller? I just got mine yesterday, to hopefully help with some pelvic floor dysfunction issues. The roller is highly recommended in a book I have on PFD by Isa Herrera; she says it's the closest you can get to a "free [more]
