Earth Day - Random Topics
Travaltron, I've seen a bit of the shadowside of hippies from back then to the current time so I understand where you're coming from here. I also like Arbor Day [and more places than ever could use healthy trees]! Anyway, I'm glad you haven't entirely shot down the concept of stewardship of our environment merely because of some bad seeds, kooks and hotheads who claimed to be speaking for every person wanting to preserve habitable space on our planet. P.S. I most sincerely hope that none of those Einhorn wannabees you met took that concept far enough to harm any of their significant others. Oh, yeah, the preceeding post was mine but somehow my moniker got clipped when I sent it in. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 27, 2012, 8:22 am

Celebrity Ghost Stories - TV Shows
Maybe they should have a sequel called "Spokespersons'/ Spookspersons' Ghost Stories". How far has A&E fallen! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 25, 2012, 4:47 pm

Onions - Random Topics
I always thought it interesting that the water pressure in the individual cells of an onion is greater than what would explode a steam engine. Still, as far as I know, no one has attempted to build a steam engine out of onions. LOL Foodwise, I can eat them raw or cooked but find that I have to go to foreign countries not to get dissed for said breath after raw consumption. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 25, 2012, 4:32 pm

Dear John - TV Shows
If royalties weren't a factor, would anyone be surprised if Judd Hirsch would prefer being remembered for his work in "Taxi" instead of this? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 25, 2012, 4:27 pm

Steven Spielberg - Celebrities
PYLrulz, Overall, I agree yet I wish that "1941" and "Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull" had never happened. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 24, 2012, 1:16 pm

Blind Melon - Music Groups
JayD, I concur. Alas, we have to HEAR more Blind Melon songs on the radio than Question Mark and the Mysterians instead of vice versa. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 24, 2012, 1:12 pm

American Gladiators - TV Shows
Who'd have thought that the "Star Trek" episode 'Bread and Circuses' would have turned out to be about the future rather than a skewed version of the 'contemporary' Roman Empire? LOL -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 24, 2012, 1:10 pm

Blind Melon - Music Groups
Good question, JayD. And can anyone else unrelated to the band recall any song of theirs besides the one involving the Bee Girl? Could they be taking encouragement from Question Mark and the Mysterians who've managed to dine on '96 Tears' alone for the last 45 years[!]? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 15, 2012, 1:32 pm

JumptheShark.com - Websites
Has anyone been able to access the Vintage Site via the Wayback Machine these last few months? It seems even THAT has been denied the fans. Oh, and if it turned out that TV GUIDE had a Mama Carlson MO re the site purchase, it wouldn't come as a total surprise to me! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 15, 2012, 1:22 pm

Van Halen - Music Groups
kingbk, I heard it,too, and was somewhat disappointed. It sounded as though it could have been recorded in the early 1980's. I'm VERY nostalgic for 1980's music but one of the most appealing aspects of Van Halen was how INNOVATIVE they were during their prime combining many genres and styles to get the perfect 'storm' - and now they seem to have been stuck in the same safe[profitable] rut for 25 years. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 14, 2012, 4:47 pm

Flintstones, The - TV Shows
OK, (), I didn't say that Mel Blanc voiced Barney in every single episode. However; for a time after his horrible accident, he DID voice Barney flat on his back from a hospital bed. I'd think with a moniker like (), you'd be more admiring of the late Mr. Blanc's efforts! LOL -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 14, 2012, 4:40 pm

Topper - TV Shows
hbrennan, Thanks for bringing this one up! I watched this back in the early 1980's on [I think]CBN cable network and had a BLAST! The great irony of this was that the middleaged Topper had virtually nothing to live for before this fetching ghostly couple 'adopted' him. I mean he was stuck in a boring job and had to tolerate being married to a whiny pill named Henrietta- even going so far as turning away when he had to air kiss her[ no surprise they had no kids]. Then this young ghostly couple George and Marion came back to their old home and discovered that Topper needed help in learning how to appreciate LIFE and after Topper's initial attempts to 'evict' them, the three of them formed a different kind of family . No, Topper never quite got unstuffy but it was fun watching them try. Plus, it helped that the performers [Robert Sterling and Anne Jeffreys] were wed in Real Life and had some atomic chemistry similiar to the Arnazes in 'I Love Lucy' yet they never schemed against each other- just against those who tried to make life unpleasant for Topper . Oh, and it wasn't for nothing that Marion was termed 'the Ghostest with the Mostest'!LOL -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 14, 2012, 4:37 pm

Newlywed Game, The - TV Shows
I wouldn't be surprised if they made those answer cards big enough so the newlyweds could hit each other over the head whenever they got mismatched answers-which seemed to be the alternate to kissing each other to audience applause when they got right ones. The thing seems tame in retrospect but I have to wonder how many of them stayed married more than a year after being on this show? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 5, 2012, 8:39 am

Zales Jewelers - Random Topics
Even if one elects to spend the equivilant of house downpayments on chunks of rocks, I can't imagine why one would do so at a national chain instead of a local establishment. It seems to me somewhat like paying hundreds of dollars for a Happy Meal instead of going to a five star restaurant. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 5, 2012, 8:23 am

Bob Saget - Celebrities
Friedrich, Even if one has no problems with others using profanity for entertainment purposes, the sad thing about Saget doing that in the radio interview was that he was doing it for the ostensible purpose of promoting one of his projects. In other words, there would have been X number of listeners who'd have otherwise not heard of/cared about said project who might have taken an interest in it had they been able to listen to said interview. However; due to him rendering the interview so devoid of non-profane content to make it unfit for broadcast, he somewhat sabotaged his earning potential- to say nothing of having wasted the deejay's and his own time! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 5, 2012, 8:09 am

Bob Saget - Celebrities
I know of a deejay who had to dump an entire interview with Saget because Saget peppered his responses with so many profanities that there would have been virtually nothing left to air after editting. Yeesh! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 2, 2012, 8:32 am

Baywatch Nights - TV Shows
John, I'm amazed you made it through even ONE full episode. Bottom line, Baywatch-clothed showed the Emperor's Clothes re the fact that lame dialogue, situations, etc. couldn't be ignored with the cast wearing clothes as these flaws could be ignored on the original via the cast wearing next to none. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 2, 2012, 8:25 am

Beatles, The (TV series) - TV Shows
John, I think it was OK as a time passer but nothing more. Still, I'd much rather have had Paul Frees do MORE Boris Badanov than sub for two Beatles. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 2, 2012, 8:20 am

Ally McBeal - TV Shows
This is one show that started out okay but got so weird that I'd like to forget ever happened altogether- and not just the computer dancing baby. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 27, 2011, 10:15 am

Misadventures of Sheriff Lobo, The - TV Shows
It didn't last long but what was surprising was that Akins and even Nell Carter [in her prime time debut] could actually have fairly good dramatic moments amongst the sitcomy fluff. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 27, 2011, 10:00 am
