Parallel Parking - Random Topics
Agreed, Robert. Of course, what's especially aggravating about it is that most spots actually CHARGE for the 'priviledge'. Parking METERS actually may be a good topic to consider re boning. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 15, 2010, 11:46 am

BEATLES, The - Music Groups
Charles Kim, Sorry for not spelling 'cacophony' correctly. I've heard that tag quite a few times on manual records and CD's before and after I was 12 and I think I do 'get it'(and am thankful to those radio stations that actually cut that part out when playing 'Day in the Life' .If you think that tag was brilliant, that's your deal. Speaking strictly for myself, I think it was a pretentious and pompous act towards their fans in which the Beatles believed the fans would buy any and ALL sounds out of their mouths/instruments and consider them genius. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 15, 2010, 11:44 am

Not in my city, Robert. I have to do it at least three times a week and it's a pain! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 14, 2010, 7:04 am

Remington Steele - TV Shows
Like "Moonlighting", it worked best when they actually INVESTIGATED cases with some good sexual tension in the mix instead of having their . . .relationship get the full focus. It went on for too long and, of course, the suits trying forcing Pierce Brosnan's hand by making him come back after he'd already accepted the James Bond role made for some unpleasant shows because his hatred of being there was pouring out of every pore- and then they threw in some new guy no one ever heard of before. They should have just let the thing go when he got James Bond. Where are Stefanie Powers and that new guy anyway? Oh, and Doris Roberts seemed MUCH happier being on "Raymond" than having to deal with all this flak. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 13, 2010, 9:37 am

Lawrence Welk Show, The - TV Shows
Even my rock-hating parents born in the 20's considered this show a total bore! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 13, 2010, 9:25 am

It seemed a somewhat tame version of the original sci-fi movie. I knew it was cheesy and all but what made it bone for me was when there was an episode when their arch-enemy Francis actually gave them a 'ten minute head start'! Since when do arch-enemies play fair or by the rules? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 13, 2010, 9:17 am

Thanksgiving - Random Topics
Not only do I agree that 'Turkey Day' somewhat disrespectful, but I also think it's somewhat inaccuate- as there are some folks out there who eat HAM instead. Does this mean that the ham-eaters should say 'Happy Ham Hour' while they're eating? At least I've never heard any vegetarians say 'Happy Tofurkey Day'! Oh, well as long as I get my thoroughly cooked but still moist breast meat, some crisp skin, cranberry gell with the can's imprint still on it and the yummy green bean casserole, I won't let these annoyances ruin the day for me! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 13, 2010, 9:05 am

According to Jim - TV Shows
Although I admit it has its share of lame (and even nasty) moments, I actually liked this show until the awful finale. I guess because even the somewhat snooty sister-in-law Dana and sidekick dorky bro-in-law Andy were shown to be multi-dimensional who could each step out of their 'normal' roles and either save or ruin the day unexpectedly. Yeah, Jim usually was the couch-potato schmuck who got shown up by his smart hotty wife but sometimes he'd show some insight and sometimes Cheryl would do zany stuff -and that helped keep the sitcom from getting stuck in a rut. Oh, and I had to love the [unstated Albanian] Jim having an altar ego of the Irish Green Man who was the bane of Chicago on St. Paddy's Day! LOL One thing, though that bugged me was the show's refusal to EVER allow Jim, Cheryl or even his siblings-in-law to be referred to by a surname- even in situations where the other person would normally have used surnames when addressing them (e.g. police, teachers, ministers,etc.). Even if they didn't want to go the route of considering Jim's or Cheryl's differing ethnicities, why not at least give them some generic surnames? Still, I thought it was overall a fun show (and sometimes it was fun to consider how many ways Cheryl could pronounce 'Jim' LOL). -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 3, 2010, 4:55 pm

Pirates - Random Topics
As far as I'm concerned, pirates boned when they raided, stole and burned some of my ancestors' galleons (never mind where THEY got the riches from)! It would be nice if pirates were completely a phenom of past centuries but they're still wreaking havoc and causing serious problems in too many parts of the world! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 3, 2010, 4:37 pm

Who Wants to Be a Millionaire - TV Shows
I think it boned when they had the Celeb Editions- and evidently some egomaniacs couldn't stand the idea of their stupidity broadcast on national television so they let the other celebs 'help' them with the answers from the pit which they NEVER would have allowed ordinary contestants to do! Even though the Celeb Editions were playing for charities, they STILL should have insisted they strictly answer the questions on their own or with the show's alotted Lifelines. It seemed to go downhill from there. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 3, 2010, 4:13 pm

Six Million Dollar Man - TV Shows
Yeah, Gordon. After the 'Jaime' song, it was no surprise that she let them fake her death so she wouldn't have to chance having to HEAR it again bionically! If they ever needed a city evacuated quickly before a hurricane, all they'd have to do is have Lee Majors reprise 'Jaime' on a PA system and every hearing person within a 50 mile radius would outrun said hurricane! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 3, 2010, 4:08 pm

Two and a Half Men - TV Shows
Of course, if it's true that Charlie Sheen put a knife to his wife's throat , the show (and network) was done in keeping him insted of immediately dumping him like yesterday's plutonium! To be honest, though, the show's been too nasty the past few years for me to bother with anyway. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 3, 2010, 3:58 pm

Upstairs, Downstairs - TV Shows
It worked best in the early years when it concentrated on the lives of the downstairs staff who knew every single trick and nuance of their upstairs employers(e.g. discovering Lady Marjorie's affair having seen her burn a letter in the fireplace- knowing that she NEVER lit the fireplace herself) whilst the upstair employers themselves were completely oblivious to their servants' often troubled and chaotic lives as long as the household functions went smoothly. Jean Marsh (whose ex was the 3rd Doctor Who) created,wrote,produced and starred in this yet would go on to be a supporting player in the forgettable TV version of "9 to 5"- yet claimed to have actually been paid MORE as a supporting actress in a fluffy US sitcom than she'd been paid for ALL she did for this groundbreaking British dramatic series! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on March 2, 2010, 11:32 am

Dukes of Hazzard, The - TV Shows
DolFan, Coy and Vance were cousins to each other but brothers to Bo and Luke, respectively but I couldn't tell you which of them went with which True Duke because they weren't bothering to remember. An interesting footnote to all this is the fact that for all its carchases and hokum, the "Dukes" did somewhat capture a little-known part of Southern US history in that many a 'good ole boy' moonshiner revved up their cars and trucks just so they COULD gallavant up and down those very steep hills to literally stay ahead of the law! Some of them saw the looky loos watching the chases and got the idea that they could make money off of CHARGING folks to watch so, yep, the NASCAR races among others evolved from this! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on March 2, 2010, 11:21 am

Knight Rider (2008) - TV Shows
Yeah, Robert. What's next- a "Maude" movie? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on March 2, 2010, 11:14 am

Roots (TV miniseries) - TV Shows
It was amazing to watch. However; Alex Haley's own life depiction was quite bland compared to that of his ancestors and other characters- until the last part in which he became motivated to seek out documentation of his family's verbal history! Still, the series DID motivate many folks of all ethnicities to take an interest in their ancestry so that in itself shows it never boned! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on March 2, 2010, 11:10 am

NASA - Random Topics
Perhaps that is the case, MCS and Friedrich. However; from that contest such technology as PCs and the 'Net itself arose from the need to be able to process as much info ASAP via as little bulk and weight as possible so they could conserve rocket fuel so it wasn't without positive changes. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on March 2, 2010, 11:04 am

Pinball Machines - Random Topics
Yeah, MCS- you just can't 'tilt' an iPOD player to finagle the score the same way you could a pinball machine. And already there's a generation out there who knows nothing about how satisfying a good SLAMMING hang up of an old fashioned telephone actually was(pressing the 'Off'button after having a heated convo just doesn't cut it)! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on March 1, 2010, 11:50 am

Gidget - TV Shows
Actually, this was at times a little deeper than one would expect from the premise- with such issues as Gidget's mother having died a year before the show, her older sister and brother-in-law sometimes trying to overrule their father re raising Gidget and her staying friends with the intellectual, sun-allergic nerdy girl named Larue in spite of her own newfound popularity as a surfer chick! If one actually watches the show instead of dismissing it as pure fluff, one gets the sense of characters that were more multi-dimensional than expected and that Sally Field was already cutting her dramatic acting teeth even if those dramatic moments were often sandwiched between lengthy periods of sitcom fluff. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on March 1, 2010, 11:46 am
