Northeastern, Why is it 'very necessary' for anyone to use this? Yes, I've heard a story or two about some long lost siblings finding each other through this, but, apart from that I can't see ANY need to blab about oneself and post pics of friends and family for the whole world to see. Why does the whole world need to know about your business anyway? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 18, 2010, 2:44 pm

Spin City - TV Shows
I have to agree that when Michael J. Fox left, it boned because one could sense that as much spinning the character did, he was, underneath it all, a decent and principled person. Charlie Sheen's character just seemed snotty,glib and could have written his code of ethics on a bee's knee and still have left plenty of room for the World Book Encyclopedia! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 18, 2010, 2:38 pm

Archie Bunker's Place - TV Shows
I'd agree, Robert- except that Jean Stapleton herself was sick of doing the character and essentially had had to be dragged in to do it on a fairly occassional basis the last year or so. Since Edith Bunker would have NEVER left Archie, I can't imagine how else they could have had her exit the show besides dying. Still, it would have been better for all concerned had Carroll O'Connor had simply retired the concept when the other three main performers left (and, it's interesting that, after the series[plural] finally gasped its last, he'd have the most success as a performer of the four). All in all, it simply would have been better had they ended 'AITF' when Mike and Gloria amscrayed. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 18, 2010, 2:31 pm

Alamo Ministries - Websites
lrbloom, One would think so but, if it exists, it certaintly isn't being enforced! BTW, I once had one of his followers try to convert me while I was waiting for a parade to start. He was full of parroted responses to every single uncomplimentary charge against their leader( which was somewhat common knowledge in my city- not to mention public record) and this person totally blew his case by stating that,as per Alamo's dictum, since I read the New International Version of the Old and New Testaments and NOT the King James Version, that that alone would send me to Aytch Eee Double Hockey Sticks (you get where this is). I tried to tell him that as classical and poetic as it is today; it was( at that time) the latest modern translation of the Scriptures that had been translated many times down from Aramaic to Greek to Latin to Middle English before getting the Shakespearean English translation and that the NIV was TODAY's latest modern translation but he refused to consider that before storming off condemning me there. Oh, I wish I had thought to also mention that the historic fact that King James VI of Scotland and First of England who had this commissioned was rather openly bisexual but he'd have probably imploded right in front of me! LOL I'd also like to take this opportunity to dis them for putting tracts under my windshield wipers,etc. filled with paranoid rants against those not worshipful of Tony Alamo. And I'd ALSO like to dis ALL those celebs who eagerly bought his designer jackets and posed with him -totally oblivious to the fact him being a wanted criminal( to say nothing of the cult-run sweatshops that produced said jackets). -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 18, 2010, 2:24 pm

Time Tunnel, The - TV Shows
Not bad but did anyone else wonder how they managed to keep their clothes lean leaping back and forth to different times- and why they couldn't ever quite make it back? It was interesting seeing the former Miss America Lee Meriwhether as one of the scientists futiling trying to bring them back home as it was rare to see a beautiful woman depicted as being a scientist back then! (Anyone wanna imagine how different "Gilligan's Island" might have been had the performers playing Ginger and the Professor played each other's roles? Ginger could be quite clever when it suited her-and easily outbrained the other women!) -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 11, 2010, 4:50 pm

Get Smart - TV Shows
Elainewoods, Although I think it went on a bit longer than it should have (the 99 wedding and birth of twins,etc.), I think it rocked- especially 99! Funny thing is that Barbara Feldon said that some REAL spies approached them and asked them to make the show's gadgets for real- not realizing that they were nothing more than painted cardboard and sound effects! LOL! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 11, 2010, 4:30 pm

Westboro Baptist Church - Random Topics
Would they like it if folks disrupted THEIR services for their own political protests?! I don't think so. A resounding JEER to them for pouring salt on so many grieving families' wounds! They are indeed nothing more than clinging cymbals (let them look THAT up and see who said that)! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 11, 2010, 4:25 pm

The s-word (AKA snow) is in the forecast for my area and here it is December and guess what this store doesn't yet have in stock? SNOW SHOVELS! Again, thanks a LOT, Home Depot! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 11, 2010, 4:20 pm

Miley Cyrus - Celebrities
Robert, not a bad theory. However; why didn't a lot of parents refuse to buy her or Billy Ray's stuff after that "Vanity Fair" photo deal? Or for that matter why haven't a 'lot of parents' refused to buy Britney Spears stuff after all HER stunts or even Eminem's stuff after those song about wanting to do heinous,unnatural things to his own mother? Unfortunately, there seems to be a large number of folks who don't CARE what their own or their kids' fave pop icons do and will cave into buying them without making any attempt to consider whether they want to help fund dubious activities. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 11, 2010, 4:14 pm

John Wayne - Celebrities
True- Understated and that includes his attempt to play GENGHIS KHAN ("The Conqueror"- 1956) as a hero(kidja not!). Unfortunately, not only did the Duke himself bone with that movie but so did so many of his costars including Susan Hayward (playing his Empress Bortai as a redheaded Tartar princess), Agnes Moorehead as GK's mom (yes Endora herself) who all contracted and died from deadly forms of cancer due to being exposed to nearby nuclear test sites while filming this howlingly bad debacle! One thing that puzzled me is why he chose the name 'John' and not Duke as his performing name when everyone from his youth onward called him that (and, yes, Duke Wayne would have still sounded far more rugged in the billing than his real name of Marion Michael Morrison). Oh, and I'd also like to note that the tag came from his favorite childhood dog! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 11, 2010, 4:07 pm

Family Ties - TV Shows
At least they've never attempted a reunion movie. The "Family Ties Goes to England" TV movie was bad enough and best forgotten! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 6, 2010, 10:06 am

American South, The - Random Topics
DolFan, Let me put it this way: if I ever went to Egypt and met someone from a nearby town who said they totally hated Giza due to the notorious filth, traffic, crowding, corruption and exploitation of the tourists, I'd respect their POV but I'd hope they'd understand that even with ALL those factors NOTHING could take away from the architectural, engineering, and artistic marvel over incredible odds and the grandeur of the Great Pyramid of Khufu by the Ancient Egyptians that have inspired hundreds of generations since then and for THOSE reasons I'd risk all the unpleasantness to see that pyramid. OK, I'm not a big fan of the blues myself but I appreciate how it came to be and how it has contributed to music for so many genres worldwide- and I DO think it's fascinating how the blues and rockabilly evolved so CLOSE together! Fine if you still hate Memphis and Beale Street but at least accept that there are those of us interested in the heritage who are willing to see it in spite the problems (which, I agree need to be worked out). Anyway, I guess I should be glad you don't consider the ENTIRE South to be beyond redemption. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 6, 2010, 10:02 am

Carpenters, The - Music Groups
She had one of the most interesting voices out there that went far deeper than the lyrics she was given to sing. Sadly, I think Karen was badly haunted by many things. And how many Carpenters hits have there been for Richard not involving her voice? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 3, 2010, 2:59 pm

American South, The - Random Topics
DolFan, I'd hate to live in a region in which I believed there was nothing of interest or benefit and I hope there are people and places near where you live which you like. No need to condemn the ENTIRE American South over Memphis. I mean, there's a lot to see besides Memphis. Not that Memphis is my fave city in the South or even Tennessee(that would be a tie between Nashville[with its Parthenon replica, Ryman Auditorium, etc.] and Chattanooga[ with Lookout Mountain + the Tow Truck Museum,etc.]). However; even Memphis has its charm if you know where to look. For instance, I think it's fascinating to think that Beale Street [home of the blues] and Sun Records [home of rockabilly and where Elvis got his start] are literally just one street removed! If that doesn't epitomize how unexpectedly connected folks with different backgrounds are in this neck of the woods, I don't know what does! LOL -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 3, 2010, 2:54 pm

New WKRP in Cincinnati, The - TV Shows
On the original series Mr. Carlson's son Arthur was about 12 but here he seemed to be in his 30's and bald! Also, Dr. Johnny Fevera ...a GRANDFATHER?! Why did they do this one again? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on November 28, 2010, 7:04 pm

Great Grape Ape Show, The - TV Shows
I totally agree, Friedrich! I knew it was nothing more than junk from Day One but what made it REALLY bone for me was when the protagonists visited Rio de Janeiro, Brazil- and took a riverboat up the adjoining Amazon River! Hello, I know the name of the place is Rio but it's like 1200 miles from the Amazon (and, actually not on a river- the first Portuguese explorer who saw it mistakenly thought that since it had such a large bay, that it had to be on the mouth of a large river)! OK, I admit I could read maps before anything else but that's about as lame as thinking Riverside, California's on the Mississippi! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on November 28, 2010, 6:55 pm

Skatebirds, The - TV Shows
Scatman Crothers actually voiced the only remotely entertaining character here- a cat named (you guessed it) Scat Car! Man, this show made "Hong Kong Phooey" seem downright Shakespearean! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on November 28, 2010, 6:41 pm

Krispy Kreme - Random Topics
If they can't spell what they're supposed to be making, why be surprised if it doesn't TASTE like what it's supposed to be? Might as well snack on cardboard with Kool Whip as far as I'm concerned. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on November 28, 2010, 6:30 pm

Cher - Celebrities
I liked her better when she had her own real nose- and why is that "Moonstruck" is the only role I can think of that made the audience actually consider the character she was playing was a real personality and NOT Cher playing herself? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on November 28, 2010, 6:24 pm

Bloom County - Random Topics
Not exactly, Robert, long-short of it is that Opus got spun off into his own less frequent comic strip then when Brethed decided to pull the plug altogether, he had Opus get 'reborn' as a drawing in a book- inside the last comic strip itself! Well, it beat how "For Better or For Worse" ended- yet didn't end. Anyway, although some of the characters I couldn't stand (e.g. the talking roaches), overall I liked the strip and followed it as long as I could in all its incarnations. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on November 28, 2010, 5:55 pm
