Re: Buying Stuff You Can Never Use

Is there a genre you've never played?

Are there any genres you've never played (or hardly played?).

Re: Questions for next In The Chair - Jim Bagley

Some people always claimed Hudson Hawk had a great script that was badly made. Did you get to read it? Was it as bad as the film?
