Pepsi - Random Topics
Pepsi is O.K. Cherry is good, Throwback is always awesome. Pepsi lacks the kick and potency Coke has, and it's a bit on the overly-sweet side, but it's still a decent drink. -- Submitted By: (Crewman) on July 6, 2013, 12:34 am

History (History Channel) - Random Topics
What a depressing travesty this network has become. Yes, "Hysteria Channel", "Conspiracy Channel" and "Pseudo-History Channel" are fitting titles now. Another station gobbled up by the reality show fixation, same thing that happened to TLC and MTV. This channel during it's prime was literally a visual history, civics and government book in the TV. Napoleon, Sitting Bull, Confucius, Genghis Khan, George Washington, Henry the VII, Vlad the Impaler, Sojourner Truth, The War of 1812, The Bubonic Plague, the Inca Empire. They did it all. I had a hearty laugh over the past 3-4 years of them doing all this 2012, apocalypse and alien $h!+. 2012 was a fear tactic for ratings. H.C. never did anything like that when Y2K was going on. ... "Oh, yes. Our ancient ancestors were all stupid, despite the fact they had several hundred years to perfect math, science and astronomy all on their own! ALIENS helped them build our civilization!" "I guess Da Vinci, Galileo, Socrates, Noah, and the guy who discovered fire were all lizard lipped alien mutants in human costumes that beamed down?" "Oh! Maybe we scared them off so they sunk Atlantis and took off forever into the universe???" (LOL) Even worse with Swamp People, Ice Road Truckers, Pawn Stars, UFO Hunters, Life After People... Can we at least put these shows on a more appropriate network? SOME of those "shows" weren't bad, they just ain't HISTORY! Discovery, Travel, SOMETHING? At least some are trying... The Vikings, Hatfields and McCoys and a HANDFUL of others were educational. Oh, History Channel, what have you become?! -- Submitted By: (Crewman) on July 6, 2013, 12:27 am

Ren and Stimpy - TV Shows
God, this show was nasty and gave me serious nightmares when I snuck it during the tail-end of the series' original run back in the late 90's on Nickelodeon... After re-watching it some years later, it held up... They pulled it off, somehow, despite all the nastiness. Maybe it was the seriously dark humor and adult jokes they snuck in at times? Like the episodes where Stimpy clones Ren and Ren's "evil" clone tries to take over the world after ruining everyone's lives? "Hermit Ren"? Or that one where Stimpy meets Ren's cousin from Sweden and they destroy Ren's home, the latter literally threatening to kill them afterwards? Maybe it was because it proved Ren and Stimpy proved it could have emotional, serious episodes? Like the episode with Stimpy's "Son", his own fart, or the episode where Stimpy become addicted to TV and has real-life withdrawal symptoms when Ren takes it away? And the one were Stimpy questions his morality being on his final life out of 9. The later episodes made by Nickelodeon after John K. departed did not have the same magic that the originals had, but there were a couple good episodes, I just mentioned a few in that bundle of examples above along with some Spumco gems. I don't know. This obviously wasn't meant to be a kids' show, though. John K. should have waited a few years and pitched it to Comedy Central or Adult Swim on Cartoon Network or something. Then again, those "Adult Party Cartoon" episodes he made in the 00's were WAY too nasty for my taste, had no plot, and lacked that mysterious "cleverness" I can't put my finger on the original episodes had. They was just toilet humor... And that was it. I mean, for example, South Park is obnoxious, but it makes up for it by making fun of many aspects of society oh-so-gloriously and cleverly. -- Submitted By: (Crewman) on July 3, 2013, 2:50 am

Teletubbies - TV Shows
This show never taught me anything, in fact when I was 5 in 1998, I found it quite boring watching these headache-inducing monsters roll around aimlessly in the countryside jingling their rear ends, giggling, touting jibberish, and then forcing me to watch the same video two times in a row...Did they think little children were all stupid or something? ... *Sigh* ... When I didn't change the station or found something else to due that watch the tube, I eagerly awaited watching Fred Rogers, Shari Lewis, Levar Burton, Big Bird, Grover, Oscar, Cookie Monster and Chris and Martin Kratt after this swill. They would be my great, thought and curiosity provoking, educational reward for enduring the boring, mind-numbing wreck that was the Teletubbies. I sometimes even awaited Barney the Dinosaur coming on! Honestly, who even cares if the purple 'Tubby was gay? No life lessons, no basic math skills or English/foreign language skills, no cultural or basic science stuff, no socializing skills... Just bright, flashy colors, nonsense, jibberish, over surrealism and a non-existent plot. Today I can't tell if this was a show intended for toddlers or one cleverly passed off as a kid's show that was actually a program for stoners. Well, at least they were cute, right? Boned day one, definitely. -- Submitted By: (Crewman) on July 3, 2013, 2:31 am

Rap (music) - Random Topics
Yes, at some point in the 90's artists stopped singing about the hardships of life in the ghetto. The older rap music was about difficult times, resulting to artist singing about rebellion in this harsh environment, rebellion against "the man", having to survive the violence in the hood, eventually ending up in the wrong crowd and paying the price, etc. (This is why I always have and still enjoy most Metal, Alternative, etc. It's usually about the struggle of life in hard times) Instead this "new", "gangsta" version of rap music today focuses on being flashy, needlessly showing off in a "pimp mobile", etc., being lewd with women and doing drugs just because you can. The more the better, it's seems like it's just people trying to show off. No drama, nothing to relate to, no structure, no political statements, no self-control or restraint. Just stick with hip-hop from the 70's, 80's and early-to-mid 90's... Otherwise, go underground. -- Submitted By: (Crewman) on July 3, 2013, 2:06 am

Ed, Edd N Eddy - TV Shows
I was torn between Ed, Edd and Eddy. The animation was poor, but somewhat forgivable, the voice acting wasn't much better, and I found a lot of the characters in this series to have annoying personalities, such as Kevin, Eddy, Sarah and Jimmy. But it had it's moments, such as the extreme use of exaggerated cartoon physics for humorous effect and there were some clever one liners and some hidden adult jokes (The Kanker Sisters seemed to be one living risque jest, strictly for the teen and adult viewers). I found Edd (Double Dee) to actually be quite an enjoyable, relatable character, save for despite him being so smart he always went along with Eddy's schemes. Rolf and Ed were the most comedic. Normally I don't care for dumb characters like Ed, but he and Rolf's "interesting" and "random" dialogue seemed to be hilarious for some reason, along with Rolf's mysterious customs from his culture that we never see. And again, I liked seeing Ed break the laws of physics regularly. Also, the movie finale was surprising serious for this show and I actually liked it. Not the best show, but it had a good handful of memorable moments. -- Submitted By: (Crewman) on July 3, 2013, 1:47 am

Family Guy - TV Shows
The first couple episodes of this show weren't bad, but once the show was revived, this show took a turn for the worst. They still do have some clever jokes, but Family Guy has dropped in quality. Peter was made mentally retarded (IIRC they even did an episode about it), so they have of course used this to make him the typical nuisance/danger to everyone around him, including himself. Stewie was changed from a genius to some kind of homosexual stereotype or something (I can't tell). Brian is now just there for the political humor. Meg only exists to be the butt of jokes and to be bullied which isn't funny. Characters like Cleveland were written out, which sucks. And some of the jokes and pacing of this show are terribly boring. Some jokes are recycled, while some cutaway/flashback jokes seem to drag on forever. The potty humor does not save this show, either.... Another show that was resurrected from cancellation and became a shell of it's former self. Beavis and Butthead and Futurama pulled off their revival series successfully and I don't know how. But as for Family Guy, remote, please. -- Submitted By: (Crewman) on July 3, 2013, 1:01 am

McDonalds - Random Topics
I only eat at this place every 1 1/2 to 2 or more months tops. The meat, fish and veggies are all raised in very poor conditions. The farms and factories in which McDonald's orders their food from and has it processed are some of the most depressing, gross places to exist. The unhealthy, and sometimes unsanitary preparation of this food is not that great, either. (Kudos to Mickey D's who do at least are up to health code and have a friendly staff, I know you do exist out there.) Watch the movies "Super Size Me" and/or "Food Inc." if you don't believe me. Dunno about anyone else, but I can't eat this stuff without getting physically sick 2-3 hours later; sure it tastes good, but it is crappy food. I know it is cheap junk food, but still. Please people, save your health! Pack a lunch or go to a local "Mom and Pop" restaurant and support them before they are extinct due to corporate monopoly and eventual takeover. -- Submitted By: (Crewman) on July 3, 2013, 12:51 am

Youtube - Websites
This site changes their layout EVERY 3-4 weeks. It's like clockwork, you can predict it. Once we get used to the "new" layout, they add a bunch of new, confusing features that throw us off and we are back a square one... I know you've gotta keep up with the times and all, but JEEZ... Also, I'm still fed up with that whole copyright ordeal since Google bought them, even though it's ancient history by now. -- Submitted By: (Crewman) on June 27, 2013, 4:45 pm

DeviantArt - Websites
Not a bad site for photography and some drawings when I discovered it about 10 years ago, but it has become a central for people ripping off other characters and claiming them as their own, people taking, and uploading nothing but risque pictures of themselves ala Myspace and Facebook, and lewd, hardcore, fantasy and odd fetish drawings in recent times. -- Submitted By: (Crewman) on June 27, 2013, 4:41 pm

2012 doomsday prediction - Random Topics
This was obviously a hoax. We don't know enough about Mayan civilization to understand this, and it was probably a metaphor misinterpreted or something. I'm sure a lot of people knew it was faux from the start. This pointless, mass hysteria to make a quick buck has already been pulled so many times already, Y2K is a perfect example. It certainly made our media go down the toilet, however, mainly the History Channel. That was depressing. -- Submitted By: (Crewman) on June 27, 2013, 4:30 pm

Chuck E. Cheese's - Random Topics
This place has some pretty good shoot-em-up and car chase/action games for teens and adults.... That's about it. Crappy pizza, rigged games for youngsters, grunge, outdated, hilariously bad animatronic robots, and of course, the typical mascot in a costume who parades the place, who is probably a lowly, middle aged man who hates his life, or a young person trying to pay off their student loans all pollute this kiddie hole. -- Submitted By: (Crewman) on June 27, 2013, 4:27 pm
