Soggy, Are you saying this band is about as consistant as I've found the namesake bug spray to be? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 12, 2011, 9:32 am

Beer - Random Topics
I'm somewhat with DolFan here! While I'm fascinated that this seems to have been the first commodity produced by humans (i.e. early barns that stored grasses to feed newly domesticated livestock had leaky roofs which let rain in to ferment said grasses. Long short is that beer seems to have been around at least 1000 years before bread), I can't say this is something I ever was into. Maybe I share the tastes of the more Continental part of my background but I far preferred wine or rum when I wanted booze. Of course, it should be consumed only by legal adults who are aware of risks + health issues and if one wants to get drunk on it, please call a cab or designated driver instead of risking other drivers,pedestrians. Cab fare is FAR cheaper than legal fees. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 12, 2011, 9:31 am

Commish, The - TV Shows
Not a bad little show! What I liked the most here is how the title character caught clues and worked out whodunnit and HOW- and then did his best to nail the perps. I recall one episode in which he momentarily hesitated in breaking into someone's apartment sans warrant on the ground that the evidence couldn't be used to give the perp a life sentence- then realized that the kidnapped baby dependent on medicine would DIE waiting for said warrant so it was better to risk no jail time for the perp than to let a kidnapped baby die! I liked the idea of an official weighing what was ethically better for the victims/families rather than just someone who randomly dispensed stuff with no thought of that. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 9, 2011, 2:07 pm

Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution - TV Shows
DolFan, Well, considering that it's showing how a government run school system of a large US metropolitan area is actively pushing unhealthy foods on the city's youth to the point of trying to BAN any dissenting options or voices [to say nothing about how near adult youth are being shown having been kept APPALLING ignorant of even the most elemental nutrition and food source info], I think it's actually a bit eye-opening and I hope those are concerned about the possibility of larger percentages of folks in rising generations suffering from serious diet/exercise related longterm health problems will at least consider what steps they can individually take to help those loved ones in their life to avoid such calamnities. For example, diabetes is on the rise and not only does this mean amputations but 60 percent of diabetic go BLIND. Hence, if one estimate's forecast of one-third of all children born after 2000 contracting diabetes comes true, do the math and think of what this could mean for our nation's future if this goes unchecked . The main downside to the program is Jamie's constant pity-party for himself re others' resistance. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 9, 2011, 2:00 pm

Geraldo Rivera - Celebrities
Soggy, Oh, *I* knew his ego eclipsed the sun WAY back at Al Capone's Vault! As for him being 'inspiration'? Look at this way, perhaps subconsciously you all knew he was awful beneath all the pomposity and hype but weren't ready to openly admit it even to yourselves. However; you all were inspired to try to become journalists because deep inside you all knew you could be BETTER and have higher standards of conduct and ethics [ virtually anyone can].No, I'm not dissing you or other former fans of his because unfortunately the shrill promo machinary behind him at his height made it rather unpleasant to admit even the slightest criticism of his work at that time. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 9, 2011, 1:43 pm

Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution - TV Shows
I saw the episode when high school students failed to correctly guess that butter comes from cows even with the help of a multiple choice format! How is that no parent or teacher had ever taught them that before high school?! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 8, 2011, 8:24 am

Perfect Strangers - TV Shows
Balki was only mildly entertaining for about two minutes then became supremely annoying to me . Looking back, I understand why: because Balki was a lite version of the late Andy Kaufman's Latka [who himself was best a funny background character for roughly five minutes at a time]. Did the producers and Bronson Pinchot seriously think they'd slack the public's thirst for Andy Kaufman with . . . that?! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 8, 2011, 8:02 am

Duck Factory, The - TV Shows
Not a bad premise [and interesting to see a young Jim Carrey REALLY get into cartooning with the other characters]. Yet, it just didn't wash- primarily because with everyone working together to save this floundering cartoon studio, there were no antagonists beyond the wolf a the door. Maybe folks weren't ready to get nostalgic about real cartoons at this point. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 7, 2011, 12:48 pm

Supergirl - Movie Series
How is a movie that's even LESS fondly remembered by Supe fans than "Superman Three" considered a 'series'? I hope Helen Slater's life has improved since this debacle. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 7, 2011, 12:30 pm

Louisiana - Random Topics
Aw come on, Soggy+Stephanie, these folks are having to struggle with some major flooding [in no small part due to their topography]. Can't we cut them a little slack at this time? For me, it has a fascinating culture that has no parallels anywhere else in the US or the Caribean which has combined virtually every imaginable element from ALL the above societies [and a shout out to Soggy for his kudos of Cajun cuisine- though that's far from the only one]. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 5, 2011, 4:23 pm

Mood Rings - Random Topics
I don't think so, Robert. But I thought someone who actually remembers them when they were popular needed to say something! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 5, 2011, 4:15 pm

Elmo - Random Topics
Soggy, If memory serves me correctly, Grover doesn't wear a jockstrap. Hence, I think a more apt analogy would be to say that Elmo isn't worthy to sweep Cookie Monster's cookie crumbs off the counter! Anyone else with me? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 5, 2011, 4:12 pm

Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids - TV Shows
I loved this show as a kid and considered it a highlight of Saturday morning cartoons. However; even back then I used to wonder about the laugh/applause tracks. I mean, did they REALLY think that they'd think kids at home would imagine a group of people who had nothing better to do than to attend a CARTOON SHOW during which they could instantly laugh and applaud? Yeah, I know if Fat Albert could make a radiator and a pillow sound like an electric organ. . . -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 4, 2011, 4:02 pm

Anyone else wonder what color a mood ring would have turned had it been placed on a pet rock? LOL -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 4, 2011, 3:57 pm

Pluto (Dwarf Planet) - Random Topics
Sorry, but I'll always consider a planet- even if it happened to march to its own drummer[ or weird orbit]. I remember how cool it felt for those 20 years or so when Neptune was FARTHER away from the sun than Pluto thanks to said orbit! Jeers to the solar system model kit makers who've quit putting Pluto as part of the system! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 4, 2011, 3:56 pm

Peter Fonda - Celebrities
Soggy, Just to clarify for everyone else reading this who may not know of the family history, the World War II service record refers to HENRY Fonda not his son Peter! BTW, one my grandmothers happened to run into Henry Fonda in Macy's back in the early 1960's and calmly told him that she'd always liked his acting and he politely thanked her with a smile[ no autograph was sought or given here]. Would it be that manners such as those had been passed down to the next generation! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 4, 2011, 3:45 pm

Jeepers Creepers (2001) - Movie Series
Bravo, Robert! TOTALLY agree! Although, I have to admit that patronizing this particular series is a non-issue for me due to having no interest whatsoever in that genre. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 3, 2011, 12:31 pm

Peter Fonda - Celebrities
Excuse me everyone but when did HENRY Fonda do anything that could have been considered traitorous? He was one of the outstanding performers of his generation who may not have been the ideal father to his offspring but I don't recall Henry being less than a loyal US American. It's interesting to note that he and James Stewart stayed staunch friends to the very end despite having differing political views. Can anyone imagine Jimmy Stewart considering him a friend if HE thought Henry was a traitor? I don't think so. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 3, 2011, 12:29 pm
