The problem with such people is they only see in black and white. No grey. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on December 6, 2011, 12:29 pm

Adam Carolla - Celebrities
So we're supposed to call someone in a limo "sir" or "mister"? A person shouldn't be treated like royalty just because they're rich. Why should the proletariats bow down to the bourgeois? This just adds fuel to the class warfare fire. Then again, maybe Adam Carolla said this because he wants people to bow to him. They should...with their backs to him and their pants pulled down. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on December 6, 2011, 10:51 am

Christmas Story, A - Movie Series
It's despicable how he has no regrets scapegoating Schwartz. I mean, over the phone, Ralphie could hear the phone shrieking "WHAT?! WHAAT??!" followed by sounds of smacking and Schwartz crying as he pleaded, "What did I do, Ma?" because it was so loud (watch carefully, and you'll see Ralphie's mom pulls the phone from her ear). It should have triggered a massive wave of guilt in Ralphie. What further makes this despicable is earlier, Schwartz was triple-dog-dared into sticking his tongue on a pole and LEFT THERE. Schwartz pleaded with Ralphie to come back. He didn't because "the bell rang!" Nobody bothered to tell the teacher what happened and ask her to help him. It wasn't until the teacher asked where he is that he finally got help. After being rescued, he didn't reveal who dared him into doing it, because he had a sense of honor. Ralphie pins "fudge" on Schwartz, knowing full well he's already been through enough. Hopefully, I'm not putting too much thought into this. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on December 6, 2011, 10:28 am

Christmas Story, A - Movie Series
I'll probably get slammed but...I like it. Not LOVE, but just LIKE. But I agree about Ralphie pinning the blame on Schwartz. How I HATE, then and now, how his mother beats the living tar out of him for a petty crime which he didn't commit (yes, it was a beating, not a spanking: WAY too many strikes to be a "spanking"). It's not like Ralphie was beaten up when he swore. And his mother's apparently missing a few brains cells. "My husband swears like a sailor and Ralphie just used the F word...hmmm...I wonder who he learned it from?" When I was young, I asked why Ralphie didn't just take the soap out of his mouth and tell his mother, "NO! Wait! Schwartz didn't teach me that word!" I was told, "back then, if your mom put soap in your mouth, you don't DARE spit it out". Then again, it might not have mattered. If he said he learned it from his Dad, she may have punished him for blaming her husband. She needed a scapegoat, and when Ralphie fingered Schwartz, everything was perfect. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on December 1, 2011, 12:58 pm

Fatal Attractions (Animal Planet) - TV Shows
Compensation? You're probably right about that, Stephanie! Pair that with a small brain as Pelirojo observed and we have a tragedy in the making. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on December 1, 2011, 12:47 pm

Alvin and the Chipmunks (Live action/CGI film) - Movie Series
I saw an ad for the movie. Please tell me that's not a Lady Gaga song they're singing. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on December 1, 2011, 12:44 pm

Black Friday - Random Topics
I would never, EVER shop at a store during Black Friday. Cheaper goods? Ha. Good luck finding one after they've just sold out. Better luck finding a parking space. If you don't have claustrophobia, you will after drowning in crowds of customers in a feeding frenzy. Add in stampedes willing to trample people just to get the stuff they want, and voila! The true meaning of the holidays is eclipsed by greed, materialism, selfishness. There should be riot control: workers equipped with shields, vests, mace, etc. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on December 1, 2011, 12:43 pm

Apparently, there are cases of people getting seizures while watching the scene where a baby is born. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on December 1, 2011, 12:36 pm

Josie and the Pussycats - TV Shows
Josie was OK, but when they went to space, they sailed through the fish nebula. And that little alien? It's hideous. And pointless, as they already have Sebastian the cat. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on November 23, 2011, 2:52 pm

Jabberjaw - TV Shows
Scooby-Doo + Josie and the Pussycats = Jabberjaw. Jabber=Scooby, Clamhead=Shaggy, Biff=Fred/Alan, Bubbles=Melody (both are blonde airheads), Shelley=Alexandria (both are snobs). Velma, Valerie, and Sebastian are cut out. Don't get me wrong, I like Hanna-Barbera, but a lot of their cartoons are apparently rehashes of their other cartoons. One Jabberjaw episode starred Zorak! But I think it was just supposed to be a cameo. Now for the silver lining: at least Jabberjaw didn't have a nephew. If you decide to watch, be warned: Jabber's constant "woo-woo-woo" and other Curly sound effects could soon get on your nerves. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on November 23, 2011, 2:49 pm

Steampunk - Random Topics
I never knew about this until I saw a steampunk-based project on a DIY show. How to install those big, round typewriter keys onto a computer's keyboard. That made me think steampunk was interesting. But like all ideas, some people have to overdo it until it's not cool. And gluing gears onto ipods isn't mixing old with new. The gears are decoration, not functional. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on November 23, 2011, 2:44 pm

Yes, I've gotten warning before to avoid Cici's like the plague. Glad I followed it. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on November 23, 2011, 2:43 pm

Nickelodeon - Random Topics
It's quickly becoming 50% Spongebob and 40% Kung Fu Panda. It's possible to see the same exact episode of either show three times in one week. If it's a premiere episode, ten times in one week. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on November 23, 2011, 2:42 pm

Twilight - Movie Series
According to the news, Twilight: Breaking Dawn made $139 million in the United States. That's the fifth biggest box office debut ever. How could it get so popular, let alone THAT popular? -- Submitted By: (Robert) on November 23, 2011, 2:42 pm

Pirates of the Caribbean - Movie Series
At first, I thought, "First Country Bears, then Haunted Mansion, now this? Another movie based on a Disney Ride?" But, when I saw the commercials, I thought it might actually be good. So I watched. It was proof Disney could do a "serious" movie for older audiences. And it was violent, surprisingly for a Disney movie. The sequel was more violent, but it was also good: Davy Jones was evil, and the effects for his tentacled beard were amazing. As one movie critic in my paper put it, "It's hard to tell where the actor ends and the CGI begins". Never really watched the third movie (I got tired of it by then), and the fourth movie was too much. Can't wait for number five to be released. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on November 23, 2011, 2:34 pm

Mike Judge - Celebrities
I think his only bad show was The Goode Family. But that's OK, you can't hit the bullseye every time. Mike Judge never boned. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on November 19, 2011, 12:28 pm

Happy Feet - Movie Series
At first glance, it was yet another penguin movie. When you watch it, it starts out as a story of uniqueness in a world of conformity. Near the end, it takes an environmental turn to deliver the messages of overfishing and global warming. I don't really see how a penguin's dancing translates to "Humans, your actions are affecting us". It's sort of like Lassie barking, and concluding she's saying, "Timmy is in an abandoned mine in the middle of nowhere, and the entrance is blocked by a wall of rubble after a landslide". And how is the dancing a warning call? He's dancing because he's got Happy Feet. If he was dancing because of global warming, wouldn't they be "Sad Feet"? As for the sequel, I don't see the point. It's not like Happy Feet could go anywhere after the first movie, nor is there closure to be addressed. For example, in Cars, we could see how Lightning gets along with his new friends on Route 66. And in Toy Story, you knew one day Andy would grow up, and you're wondering the fates of Woody, Buzz, and the rest of his toys. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on November 19, 2011, 12:22 pm

Hawaii - Random Topics
I don't think Dolfan's judging an entire group of people. Just the negative people who live there. Chances are the descendants of the nice people his grandparents met were probably taught respect by their parents/grandparents. While some natives I'm sure hate tourists, they're probably only a minority, a vocal one at best. However, if the tourists are jerks who act like the natives are there to serve them as maids or janitors, can you blame their resentment? -- Submitted By: (Robert) on November 19, 2011, 12:00 pm

Fraggle Rock - TV Shows
Something similar happened in Aladdin: when Prince Ali is trying to get Rajah the tiger to back off, he says, "Good kitty, just take off and go". Some idiot with voices in their head heard, "Good teenagers, take off your clothes" and went public. I listened carefully to that part. I did NOT hear "teenagers" or "clothes". Thankfully, it wasn't edited. As for Fraggle Rock, how is it a racial slur when Gobo is one of the characters' names? And how could anyone mishear "Gee, Gobo" as a racial slur? Lastly, it's "Gobo", NOT "Gaboo"! So that makes the alleged racial slur all the more unconvincing. Sigh...this is once again a sad reminder that stupid people make the rules. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on November 19, 2011, 11:57 am
