Breaking Bad - TV Shows
kingbk, You make some interesting points. Speaking strictly for myself,though, by the same logic, I know castor oil is risky to consume but I have no interest in watching someone else chug it down then have their britches soiled. This is one show I'm not sorry to have missed while working. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on October 1, 2013, 3:18 pm

Breaking Bad - TV Shows
I've never watched it and the comments here make me even less interested in it because I do not want to see a show that glorifies something that is on record for having ruined everything it touches [producers,consumers, families, the environment]. What next -a show glorifying toxic waste dumpers? To each their own re show choices but I can't in good conscience watch this or pretend there's anything redeeming about the subject matter. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 28, 2013, 12:27 pm

Sinead O'Conner - Music Groups
PYLrulz, Good point. The picture rip DID seem a rather childish and petulant act that took away from being able to focus on her actual talent. Sad to say, I actually think she DOES have a good voice [despite her needlessly screeching like a banshee on too many occasions] but, regardless of her not being in the public glare so much, she SURE needs to find her peace. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 28, 2013, 12:16 pm

Roman Polanski - Celebrities
Valid point, jonnydough. It is up to individual patrons to decide for themselves whether the artist's personal life makes it impossible to continue to contribute to supporting their professional life. For me, that is definitely the case re Polanski. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 28, 2013, 12:12 pm

Cap'n Crunch - Random Topics
Never liked the cereal itself but the cartoon ads were a blast and I always thought it funny how he had eyebrows that floated ABOVE his captain's hat. LOL -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 8, 2013, 10:35 am

Monkees, The - Music Groups
Just to let everyone know, I saw them in concert when they came to my town last month and they ROCKED! Not only did they flawlessly perform their standards but it was good seeing Michael Nesmith and Peter Tork being given more chances to shine individually and collectively than in the past. Oh and while Peter Tork showed his incredible talent re playing a very wide variety of instruments [even simultaneously], I think his singing has definitely IMPROVED from the days of the show. Yeah, all of them are on the far side of 65 but the energy and enthusiasm they showed for their work and the audience was unbounded and I like that all of them truly seem to appreciate this chance to connect with the audience and they gave proper due to the historic venue where they played. I also like that they seemed to have put aside whatever past conflicts they may have had and have re- bonded as brothers. Speaking of family, Mike's son Christian and Micky's sister Coco were a good help to them and definitely worth seeing perform with their more famous kin [and Christian Nesmith and his talented companion Circe Link have some excellent works on You Tube, etc. worth seeking out]. If anyone on the West Coast who is a fan has the chance to see them, I urge you to see if any tickets are still available before the tour ends by the end of the month. In any case, it was good seeing them all healthy and happy again even if they were missing their most famous bandmate Davy Jones. Yes, they did a good tribute to him and it didn't overwhelm the rest of the show. The only downside to this was that they showed more of "Head" than I would have liked [IMO, Davy's song 'Daddy's Song' was the only truly entertaining part of that mess]. If any fan reading this on the West Coast has the chance to see them, I urge you to seek out tickets before the tour ends by the end of August [and there seem to be no plans for overseas tours at this time]. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 8, 2013, 10:33 am

Macaulay Culkin - Celebrities
I can't say I was ever a fan but it's horrible to see what's become of him. Is there any adult relative out there who could do an intervention? Where's his mother and what about his aunt Bonnie Bedelia? Surely the 'Parenthood' production could allow her some time off to try to save her nephew! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 8, 2013, 10:14 am

Dennis the Menace (1959 sitcom) - TV Shows
Good insights, jim. What's interesting is that contrary to their onscreen rivalry, the performers who played Dennis and Margaret were [and remain] good friends offscreen. This made their antagonism somewhat more layered than had the performers outrightly hated each other. Of course how many times do 'best buds' onscreen turn out to dislike each other off? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on July 16, 2013, 10:59 am

Google - Websites
I just saw a news story about the newest technology: Google Glasses. Yep, they put this tiny screen on these glasses that the wearer can verbally 'command' to do everything from take pics to do searches,etc. and the results will be visible ON THE LENS. Right now the price is about $1000 so that will keep it out of many folks budget for a time.It's getting annoying enough seeing all these texters play with their sardine cans all over the place while the art of conversation seems to be evaporating but how will things be with all these 'four-eyed' Googlers running around? Oh, and does anyone else dread imagining what the ROADS while be like with all these Google Glasses folks DRIVING? YEESH! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on July 16, 2013, 10:47 am

Two and a Half Men - TV Shows
I quit bothering with it ages ago due to its consistent nastiness and it's been so long since I've heard from anyone who admits to liking it, I'm wondering WHO could be watching it. Oh, and HOW will it be 'Two and a Half MEN' with the fed-up Angus T. Jones's exit and them apparently bringing aboard the late Charlie's long lost DAUGHTER? Since when is a girl the equivalent to 'a half man'? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 2, 2013, 1:42 pm

Abe Vigoda - Celebrities
Jay D, No, as of June, 2013, Mr. Vigoda is still with us at age 92 despite having had his death rumored as far back as 1982. The most recent work I can think of is that 2010 Snickers Superbowl commercial he did with Betty White. Ironic that he's best known playing a character with one foot in the grave [Fish] from the 1970's yet he seems to have been blessed with very good health. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 2, 2013, 1:35 pm

Jean Stapleton - Celebrities
She just left us at age 90 but her many works will live on forever. Most notably her fleshing out what could have easily been a one-note, forgettable 'Dumb Dora' character, Edith 'Dingbat' Baines Bunker, but via Miss Stapleton's skill was transformed into the necessary heart and soul of 'All in the Family' in addition to being the often sorely needed comic relief. RIP, Miss Stapleton. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 2, 2013, 1:25 pm

Saturday Night Live - TV Shows
Good point, Travltron. My fave era was from 1975 to 1980 and I know how it goes. The show was like that cohort whom one couldn't hang out with enough in junior high but ,after one got past the junior high stage ,said cohort was STILL acted like they were in junior high and one could barely stand them in same doses thereafter. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on May 25, 2013, 1:09 pm

Squirrels - Random Topics
Rats with bushy tails and they made a mess of things when they broke into my attic! I'm told that in England, they've learned to turn them into tasty meat pies so maybe they're not all bad. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on May 10, 2013, 10:14 am

I agree, jp! Although, if the resulting 'holiday' means that I can park free all day next to a meter due to the readers not monitoring them, that's okay by me! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on May 10, 2013, 10:08 am

Carnival Cruise Lines - Random Topics
The best thing that can be said of the most recent disaster is that the passengers can now honestly say they've gotten a small taste of what everyday existence must be like for Haitian Earthquake refugee camp dwellers! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 16, 2013, 7:52 pm

Ice Road Truckers - TV Shows
I think the very first pilot documenting the history of these truckers from when the Alaska Highway was literally carved out of trackless forests and tundra as a vital military highway to provide supplies against a potential Japanese invasion [which DID happen to the Aleutians] in World War II was quite intriguing but to make this as a series was a mistake. I mean either they have the potential of getting stuck in a blizzard or crashing through rotten ice during the spring thaw and having arguments with each other but that's about ALL that happens. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 20, 2013, 12:20 pm

Lance Armstrong - Celebrities
To try to keep this from getting too long-winded and keep my blood pressure from exploding, I'm just going to go over what I consider the WORST stuff that has come out about him that I consider reprehensible. First of all, not only did he cheat but he deliberately RUINED anyone who attempted to blow the whistle on him right up to suing them. Of course, this cheating has had FAR more seismic impact than just HIM, it's also vacated seven Tour de France titles from having ANY winners and the Olympics are seriously considering whether to quit having biking competitions altogether so that means that there are a great many athletes past, present and future who have been adversely impacted by this. Oh, and if it were truly a case of 'everyone cheats' then why is it that only HE crossed the finish line first and not having been hundred-way ties? Wouldn't everyone cheating have levelled the playing field? But what REALLY gets me furious about this is what he claims he said to his son. I realize that he has virtually zero credibility and his Oprah interview was an attempt to refurbish his image but even by this spin IF what he said to his son is true, it's rather rotten. His son had DEFENDED him and he supposedly told his son that the cheating claims were TRUE and NOT to defend him anymore. Supposedly his son said that that was okay and he still loved Lance. Well, if Lance truly loved his son, then why didn't he own it, go public and admit cheating and take his medicine right THEN and there?! Instead, at best he let his son to continue taking flak on his behalf while, at best, tacitly letting his son participate in covering up his own dirty laundry [and at worst, he COERCED his son into covering up his own dirty laundry]. Thus, even by his own spin, what he did and allowed to happen to his minor son for YEARS on end truly STINKS! I hope no one is surprised if in the future his offspring or other family members writes a 'Jersey Dearest' account of what existence with Lance may have been. Oh, and after ALL he put everyone he was associated with up to and including his closest family members and himself through, he STILL wants to be able to compete again?! There are no [printable] words. Oh, yeah, and I'm not happy that I was gullible enough to buy his spin for as long as I did. I'll grant that it's good that he at least was able to help cancer victims who might not have otherwise received it via the organization he founded but otherwise I have no use for hm. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 20, 2013, 12:13 pm

Mel Blanc - Celebrities
Unquestionably a legend and unboneable! However; I know that he wished that CARROTS could have been boned from Bugs's menu in that he absolutely hated them but was required to munch on them raw for his most iconic character . All other crunchy vegetables that Mr. Blanc liked such as celery were tried as subs for carrots but, to his chagrin, the sound folks insisted that NOTHING munched like a carrot besides an actual carrot so he was forced to munch on them alone for the duration[but spat them out as soon as he could]. So talented that they were forced to bill him at a time when no other voice artists were credited. RIP, Mr. Blanc. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 19, 2012, 1:04 pm
