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

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

Simpsons, The - TV Shows
I don't think that's smart of the voice actors to try to quit over $4million salaries on today's market. I mean, in these times, it wouldn't be that hard to find starving actors willing to do said voices for 'only' $1 million per annum. And what other cartoons out there would hire ex-Simpsons alum for their former salaries? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on October 5, 2011, 2:53 am

Robert, I'd wonder about the faith of ANYONE who'd go there if there was any other coffee establishment available within a 10 mile radius. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on October 5, 2011, 2:49 am

Rocky Horror Picture Show, The - Movie Series
On the urging of friends back in college, I tried it twice but found I couldn't stand more than five minutes of it. To each our own, I say. However; I never imagined back then that this movie would be considered comparatively TAME by today's standards. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on October 5, 2011, 2:45 am

Doors, The - Music Groups
Jp, Depending on which acquaintance one hears from, it seems that Morrison was somewhat on the verge of getting out of the music business and had cut most if not all his ties to the music industry before his [un?]timely death at age 27. Yeah, the music itself stands above other songs from this time [ especially like their rendition of the 1920's Berlin standard 'Whisky Song'- which has the most ludicrous pronunciation of Alabama out there]. However; from all I've heard about Morrison, he seems as though he'd have been a nightmare to have been around if one had been acquainted with him longer than five minutes- regardless of his musical talent. Here's hoping he somehow found his peace. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on October 5, 2011, 2:40 am

Simon and Simon - TV Shows
Isn't amazing how this once-popular series seems to be almost entirely forgotten? Surprising,too, that Gerald McRaney would have the more prominent career after this show. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 27, 2011, 1:59 pm

I don't disagree with you, kingbk. However; I've often thought how 'Mr. Roboto' could have been used as a theme for the original 'Star Wars' trilogy. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 27, 2011, 1:49 pm

R.E.M - Music Groups
JP, #1. Yeah, the fact that they were still a band was kind of a surprise to me,too. However; how often do you hear of bands who actually publicly admit they've broken up despite the members having long since gone to greener pastures? [e.g. Despite the fact that Darius Rucker seems to have carved out a rather successful new niche for himself as a country performer for the last few years , Hootie and the Blowfish is still supposed to be an intact alternate rock band]. #2. Most of R.E.M., I can take or leave, some of it I dislike but I do admit liking 'Happy, Shiny People' [the one song the band itself HATES]- mainly because of the contribution of the B-52's Kate Pierson. Believe me, that song has gotten me through more than one rough work day! #3- Getting into the Hall of Fame seems to be a crap shoot so I can't get too worked up about it. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 27, 2011, 1:45 pm

Adventures of Superman, The - TV Shows
I still say the George Reeves version was easily the best of ALL the TV interpretations of the character. Too bad that that legacy [and his entire previous life] has been overshadowed by the still questionable circumstances re his death! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 22, 2011, 5:33 pm

Dudley Do-Right Show, The - TV Shows
A fun little parody cartoon but can anyone imagine someone today attempting to put on a cartoon in which the hero tried to court a damsel in vain- because she had no use for him but loved his HORSE?! No chance they'd let that pass these days without attempting Catherine the Great jokes! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 18, 2011, 6:34 pm

If it were about "Don Quixote"'s author Miguel Cervantes having a fictional time-travel encounter with the Mayan pyramid builders, it would have sounded more interesting. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 18, 2011, 5:55 pm

Robert, Perhaps. I guess it would be like asking for 'reality' shows to become 'soaps' in terms of audience apathy and network hostililty. Oh, well, maybe THAT will happen in a few more years. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 18, 2011, 5:47 pm

CSI - TV Shows
Stephanie, perhaps Ted Danson will prove to be the Barnaby Jones of the New Millenium re a performer previous known for broad comedy doing a serious detective show. However; the whole CSI conglomeration has gotten so overextended and tired that I'm not sure Danson jumping on board that topheavy, sinking ship would be good for either of them! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 18, 2011, 5:43 pm

Reality Television - Random Topics
Friedrich, Agree- and furthermore it's not only just an insult to disco but, on today's market, it would even be an insult to mosh pits if one used that analogy to rock-and-roll. Sad thing is that the adults who participate in 'reality' shows VOLUNTEER to trash their own lives before an audience- unlike Christians or lions in Roman arenas! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 18, 2011, 5:39 pm

Upstairs, Downstairs - TV Shows
Just letting everyone know I saw the last part of last year's [2010] 3 episode 'update' ! Egads, even though more than 30 years had passed since the show itself had ended [supposedly circa 1933], this was set in 1936 and 'Rose' was still on staff. OK, Jean Marsh is a very talented performer and she doesn't look bad for her age, but NO WAY could Rose have aged 30 years in a mere three to four year timespan and this new series acted as though this 'new' family had somehow lived at the address for longer than the three or four years when last the series was on. If Jean Marsh had wanted to revive this, I think it might have been more interesting to see how an aged Rose who'd been an Edwardian servant in her youth might have struggled to find a place in 1960's London which disdained and ridiculed tradition and loyalty- qualities that Rose herself had had issues with in the original series but wound up holding dear as the world drastically changed from WWI through the 1920's and early 1930's. Sorry, Miss Marsh but it would have been best to have admitted the ship had long sailed rather than trying to salvage the "Titanic" one last time! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 5, 2011, 2:50 pm

Yeah, I'm ashamed to admit having seen it a time or so during the John Davidson years. Was it just me or did talk to everyone as though they were five-years-old? Alas, this condescending 'tude seems more popular than ever! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 5, 2011, 2:28 pm
