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

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

Starbucks Coffee - Random Topics
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

STYX - Music Groups
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

How can folks go retro re a decade which itself was ALREADY retro re the 1970's and 1980's? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 22, 2011, 5:29 pm

Actually, PrinceJ, she reminds me of a young Norma Shearer[look THAT up in your Funk+Wagnalls LOL]! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 22, 2011, 5:26 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

Maya & Miguel - TV Shows
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
