Buddy Holly - Music Groups
Jp, Quick answer. Not sure for while Holly's output and range were quite impressive for the very short time of his career before his tragic death, through no fault of his own, he had not been able to establish himself as a leader of the 'rock and roll establishment'. Hard to say who would have been 'the King' if Elvis hadn't existed. Maybe Chubby Checker, perhaps. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on October 25, 2011, 10:54 am

Jackie Chan - Celebrities
I like how he admits that he liked the martial arts moves of Bruce Lee but ALSO wanted to emulate the comedic moves of Charlie Chaplin. I think this was the main thing that distinguished him for Western audiences from the pack re Asian martial arts stars and how he made very tricky, physically risky stunts seem easy and even FUN! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on October 23, 2011, 2:55 pm

Harold & Kumar movies - Movie Series
I wonder if it would have been more apt for them to do a 'Harold and Kumar Deepthali' movie? They're supposed to be Hindu not Christian, right? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on October 23, 2011, 2:51 pm

Lindsay Lohan - Celebrities
lbloom, Don't tell me that you're attempting to claim paternity of Miss Lohan- and I think it would take a whole SHELF of books to explain where both her parents went wrong! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on October 23, 2011, 2:49 pm

Our House (1986 TV series) - TV Shows
Not bad but could anyone watching this have predicted Shannen Doherty would become a VERY different person from this character after this show ended? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on October 20, 2011, 10:33 am

Weather Channel, The - TV Shows
I was surfing through yesterday and they had an hour-long progam on FOOTBALL FANS! Not football itself, the players,coaches. ..or hello, how weather may affect the games but football fans. I tried watching for a few minutes but it seemed mostly focussed on wacky tailgaters and then it got to someone who actually attended every single game wearing a full Scottish tartan kilt. Even ten years ago, this would at most have been a two-minute filler story at the end of a sports segment on the local news show during a very slow news day. I have nothing against football or fans but IMO this was about as appealing as watching grass grow and what did this have to with WEATHER?! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on October 20, 2011, 10:16 am

Footloose - Movie Series
I agree, lbloom. However; I wouldn't be surprised that Kevin Bacon's happy it's being remade so there will now be someone ELSE who has the word ' FOOTLOOSE!' yelled at him in public. I guess that would be slightly better than 'DIRTY DANCING!' being yelled at him,though. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on October 14, 2011, 7:52 pm

Van Halen - Music Groups
Roth's come back and he and the Van Halens seem to believe that they can't function without each other. However; can anyone think of ANY new songs they've done since Hagar's departure? It just doesn't seem as though they are trying that hard to be innovative anymore. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on October 14, 2011, 7:48 pm

Saddam Hussein - Celebrities
Travaltron, What next? Do you think Mussolini was good for Italy because he made the trains run on time regardless that he did lots of atrocities to the lands he invaded and his own citizens ? Yeah, what's happening to many Iraqis is awful (and I especially am upset about the Iraqi Christians who've been around since at least the 1st Century AD and use Aramaic in their services- yes, the language Jesus Himself spoke on an everday basis). However; just because things aren't as good as we'd like doesn't mean they were BETTER under Sadaam. He was horrific to too many- up to and including his own grandchildren's fathers. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on October 14, 2011, 7:42 pm

People of Walmart - Websites
(), you sound like the 'pick' of Shirley Jackson's chilling novel "The Lottery" who was happy to see others get stoned but when she got the 'honor',she strongly objected. Ironic how human nature doesn't change even if technologies do! Yeah, I agree it was mean of them to put that up there but was there anything about them to indicate that they'd have been above doing so? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on October 14, 2011, 7:35 pm

Tattletales - TV Shows
As a rule, this was a cheezy 70's game show about celeb couples dishing [now tame]stuff on each other for charity, but there was one episode which featured, of all folks, Dick Sargeant [Darren #2 on "Bewitched"] and comedienne Fannie Flagg [previous to her "Fried Green Tomatoes"]. No, these two weren't even dating- much less interested in each other so why did they bother pretending they were a married couple? Had they run out REAL celeb couples? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on October 8, 2011, 6:22 pm

T. J. Hooker - TV Shows
There was one episode in which the daughter of his old late flame asked for his help and the whole time the two of them seemed quite flirty with each other despite the implication that he could have been the young woman's actual father. OK, what made it bone was that the late mother had written down the name of the daughter's real father for her daughter to know when she grew up- but at the end of the episode the woman decided to BURN the name in front of Hooker without reading it 'so now we can always WONDER'. Huh?! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on October 8, 2011, 6:13 pm

Dear Abby - Random Topics
Robert, I read the letter which you linked- and, to be fair, Abby sided with the letter writer[Nikki's aunt] instead of Nikki's kooky mom so I don't see how Abby herself instead of Nikki's mom could have boned in this particular instance. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on October 8, 2011, 5:38 pm

Hooperman - TV Shows
This was somewhat big in its day but somehow is less remembered than either "Three's Company" or "Eight Simple Rules". I hope the late John Ritter was able to take some comfort that even this show was better remembered than "Hearts Afire"[wouldn't THAT have been a horrible legacy to go out had that been his last show?] -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on October 6, 2011, 11:09 am

Delta House - TV Shows
IIRC, this was one of no less than three shows that attempted to do the idea of being set in a dorm after "Animal House". I think one of the other two was cancelled after one episode so I think this one was the most successful of the group. If that makes any sense. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on October 6, 2011, 11:07 am

Crossing Jordan - TV Shows
It started out with an interesting concept- of a police investigator who was still coping with the as-yet-unsolved murder of her own mother in her childhood. I think this was doomed by the double-whammy of the show itself being abruptly rescheduled all over the map more times than even the most ardent fans wanted to follow it AND the fact that the title character become barely a supporting character in her own show. What's the actress done since then anyway? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on October 6, 2011, 11:01 am

Simpsons, The - TV Shows
I would agree, kingbk. I can't think of a single time in the last ten years I've been tempted to see this even as a time filler. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on October 6, 2011, 10:56 am

Communism - Random Topics
DolFan Whoa! I gotta salute you for being able to still have more surprises than I would have imagined. I'll skip for now why I believe this utopian concept would not work out except to say that I think there would be fierce competition for international tour guides while few if anyone would consider the positions of nuclear waste processors or septic tank cleaners 'dream jobs'. And where would we find the mouse to put the bell on the cat's neck anyway so how would we even begin to work towards this? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on October 6, 2011, 10:54 am

Facebook - Websites
DolFan, Take heart! As long as there is a breath in me, you will NOT be 'the last Facebook hater on the planet'.Oh, and my mother told me that some cousins have gotten into it so I know how disillusioning it is to find out that some pod people are related! Yeesh! I've already covered why I dislike it and have no interest in joining the cult. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on October 5, 2011, 3:05 am

Communism - Random Topics
DolFan, Maybe I shouldn't be asking this but how would you propose compensating folks for work in lieu of paying them monetary salaries? Would we paid in barrels of rum ,lumps of salt or cacao pods[all of these have been used at one point or another in history: Colonial Era Caribbean , Roman Empire, Aztec + Early Spanish Mexico respectively]? None of those would be so easy to transport or exchange if we went on vacation -to say nothing of having to pay bills with. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on October 5, 2011, 3:02 am
