2011 Vote for New Patron Saint of BTF - Random Topics
I voted for Mel, too, not only due to the fact that he hates more than half the folks on our planet but for the more serious issues of him being oblivious to every other driver, pedestrian, and passenger on the road when he drives drunk despite being able to afford a fleet of limos AND the physical brutality of his youngest baby's mother [ granted she's no prize herself]. Lindsey's close to him re contempt and putting others in danger but hasn't had as many years of bad behavior as he- and Kim Kardisian's annoying and overexposed but, as far as I know, she hasn't hurt anyone else. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on November 17, 2011, 9:08 am

DolFan, Let me see if I have this correct. Your first post on this subject claims that you have at least secondhand info that all natives hate tourists[ not many, some or most natives] . This, of course means that all I'd have to do is find ONE native who didn't hate me and I'd disprove your contention and as it happens I've been corresponding with someone there for some years now. Then, when I post that overall they were friendly and cordial to me when I was there, you then admit that your own grandparents had a wonderful time there 25 years ago. So does this mean that you believe that every single person in Hawaii who treated your grandparents well when they were there has since died, moved away or been infected by this miasma you say has wreaked havoc on the continental US - and that any folks who were nice to me were just faking it for me as a tourist despite the fact that they're supposed to secretly hate me because I'm a tourist? Oh, I guess I should have pointed out that the one or two folks who weren't as nice as the others WERE in the tourist industry and when I was there I interacted with many locals who had no connections whatsoever but for whatever reason seemed to want to put forth the effort to make me feel welcome and that they appreciated my interest in their culture and history. True, you never said you were disinterested in the history[and I appreciate your admiration for it] but I thought I might mention how my interest helped me. And as for what it has to do with the present day? Well, the ancestors of the native Hawaiians [those who have Polynesian descent] who made it via outrigger canoe set an example of being able to overcome incredible odds and obstacles despite minimal tools and devises through sheer determination,wisdom and perseverance that we ALL could learn from whenever we feel that things may seem overwhelming. Sorry you dislike the place but I hope to go back one day! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on November 17, 2011, 9:02 am

Sorry, DolFan, I have to disagree. I've BEEN there and overall, they treated me quite amiably and cordially. Yeah, there were one or two who weren't as nice as the others but I don't expect everyone to like me everywhere I go. I found the history and culture quite fascinating and I usually find that if I show interest in a locale's history, that opens many a door - even with those locals who are themselves indifferent to it. BTW, the original Hawaiians' ancestors emigrated from Tahiti by padding some 2000 miles in open ocean via outrigger canoes loaded with entire families as well as dogs, pigs and sacred idols using only star charts made of shells and bamboo frame as guides. Try paddling ONE MILE in open ocean with no luggage in one of those things and see if you're not amazed that these folks made it! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on November 14, 2011, 6:47 pm

Twins (1988 Film) - Movie Series
OK, it wasn't the greatest by any means but it was a fun time passer, I always liked Danny DeVito and all of Arnold's problems were WAY in the future. The best part? When they beat up that hired killer in that Western bar and let him lay there in the middle of the dance floor while ALL the patrons just danced around with the proto- line dance stuff playing! I don't know why but that REALLY cracked me up! Also, liked it when Danny dumped the other three outside that gas station near Taos, New Mexico. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on November 13, 2011, 6:34 pm

OK, he deleted that clueless Tweet re Paterno's firing and now says that he'll let his handlers release future Tweets. How about reading the whole story before posting rants online or, better yet, just say nothing online if you're clueless?!D'OH! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on November 13, 2011, 5:46 pm

The commercials are annoying but has anyone else wondered that if this stuff is supposed to cure headaches after being applied directly to the forehead- does this mean that it soaks through the skin, skull and goes directly to the BRAIN?! If that's true, how safe can it be?! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on November 11, 2011, 8:03 am

National Broadcasting Company (NBC) - Random Topics
When they dumped the original Peacock logo [with 'the following program is in living color' flute playing narration] which was cool even for those of us with black and white sets- and traded it for that sterile Angled N one around 1975, the network started its downhill slide, IMO. Yeah, call me a fossil if you like but check out the programs from that time before and afterwards and see if this wasn't a watershed moment re program quality. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on November 9, 2011, 1:15 pm

1950's - Random Topics
Travoltron, Never said 'women couldn't work' during the 1950's but when a woman worked for pay, there were more difficulties then than there are now. There were quite a few women in my own family who worked for honest wages to during the 1950's and even many decades earlier. However; there were things women who worked for wages had to contend with that women do not now. For instance, a woman worker could be o fired from her position at any time because the boss openly declared a man should replace her- and there wasn't any legal recourse regardless of how long she had worked there nor how exemplary her record had been. This also happened to minority workers. Sorry but shadow sides need to be considered when evuluating this and any other timeframe . -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on November 9, 2011, 1:07 pm

Beautiful spot- almost like another planet instead of a different state! However; the best thing said about poi is that it's very nutritious though barely edible to most folks not from Hawaii. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on November 8, 2011, 8:27 pm

Pee-Wee's Playhouse - TV Shows
Never liked the show and don't miss him. However; it's worth noting that Lawrence Fishbourne got his first national recurring role here. I guess Mr. Fishbourne's subsequent career could show that he became a star IN SPITE of this start. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on November 7, 2011, 7:58 am

I have hated this channel and all it stands for from the start- and does anyone else think that things might have gone better for Anna Nicole Smith and her family had they never participated with it? Never a fan of hers, either but still I am saddened by all the needless tragedy and exploitation. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on November 7, 2011, 7:54 am

1950's - Random Topics
Stephanie, I agree that the music was good but it wasn't all fun or innocent for everyone. If one was a woman needing to work outside the home or a minority, those times were rather tough. Not to say that the next decade changed everything for the better by any means [even for the above groups], but changes did need to be made. Also, how much fun could it have been to have been a soldier in Korea in the first part of the decade- and wondering if the Soviets would blow us up to Kingdom Come via nukes? A LOT of people here had those serious concerns. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on November 7, 2011, 7:51 am

Country Music - Random Topics
Oddly enough, in spite of living in a region virtually my whole life where it's prized, I never really got into it. Still, some classics like Johnny Cash, Dolly Parton and Merle Haggard will always rock with me because their lyrics and styles are timeless and transcend an incredible amount of the human experience! I also admit that I like some of the newer groups like Lady Antebellum and Kings of Leon. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on November 5, 2011, 12:32 pm

I agree that it's way overcomercialized and far too soon. However; since no one knows the actual date of His Birth, I guess one could technically celebrate ANY day as Christmas if one wanted. Just sayin. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on November 5, 2011, 12:24 pm
