He took the concept of 'all the world's a stage' WAAY too literally. I've often wondered if he'd have ever 'gotten' that had he lived to middle age. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on October 10, 2009, 2:45 pm

IKEA Furniture - Random Topics
OK, neo, I guess since someone else who claiming to be European posted a somewhat sarcastic post the day after I attempted to explain mys position to you, I let my temper get the better of me and not notice that it was someone different from you. That was unfair of me to you and I apologize for that. However; I myself still have no use for IKEA Furniture. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on October 10, 2009, 2:39 pm

Coca Cola Company - Random Topics
I reread the posts and conclude that I believe shanequia because she conducted the experiment with the hot dog herself and was relating her own conclusions via her observations as a good scientist is supposed to do! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on October 7, 2009, 7:38 am

Coca Cola Company - Random Topics
quimbyt, I can't say whether it's true or not about it dissolving a hot dog but I can tell you it CAN dissolve a scoop of ice cream into mere froth in a matter of minutes- and ice cream's a kind of food! In any case, a secret recipe which includes an excess amount of syrup mixed with carbonated water isn't something the human body really needs. All the above said, though, I hope anyone reading this who travels to the Atlanta area gets a chance to go to the Coca Cola Exhibit which details the company's take of the history of the drink and how it became one of the first commercial products to be mass marketted to world wide distribution. Quite fascinating! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on October 7, 2009, 7:35 am

Bonanza - TV Shows
Not a bad series but sometimes it got distracting how cheap the show was. Like, no matter WHERE they went to, the campfires they built always looked EXACTLY the same- and the stagecoach had one wheel that never turned! Still, they should have just sold the ranch when Hoss bought the farm! Can't say I ever missed Adam who was even stodgier than Ben and, frankly ,always was somewhat relieved when he quietly departed in the rerun circuits. What's also funny was how neither Lorne Greene or Michael Landon had EVER done much (if any) horseback riding befo as city folk before being cast but they quickly learned how to ride like experts to keep their jobs!

Family Feud - TV Shows
Occasionally okay as time filler- principally due to a few of the survey questions/answers being interesting with broken clock regularity! However; there's one thing I've never understood in all its incarnations: why don't they let the contestants sit down when they're not doing face-off lightning rounds? It's not as though they're thinking any smarter on their feet! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on October 6, 2009, 3:01 pm

Amazing Chan and the Chan Clan, The - TV Shows
Where was their MOTHER?! Never a mention about (the late?) Mrs. Chan! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on October 6, 2009, 2:57 pm

Dinah! - TV Shows
The show was fluff but Dinah had a cool, sophisticated Southern accent that I've heard my whole life but rarely gets heard on television. She was TV's prototype Steel Magnolia! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on October 6, 2009, 2:56 pm

Food Fights - Random Topics
Both my parents told me all about having grown up during the Depression and seeing breadlines so I never got the appeal of wasting perfectly good food just to make a mess for other folks to clean up when there are starving children! That said, though, I have to admit I DO laugh out loud seeing a good old-fashioned pie fight in classic comedies-everyone from Chaplin to Laurel+Hardy to Lucy (who also got into a funny grape fight). OK, I'm being a bit of a hypocrite with that but I figure those are empty calories that would have gone to a green room. Off camera; however, there's no virtue to having these. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on October 6, 2009, 2:45 pm

King Kong - Movie Series
Was there really any need to make any sequels or remakes of the classic? I don't think so. T'was beauty that killed the beast (which they had wanted 90-something Fay Wray herself to say in the last remake) but it the beast (or ape) that saved the Empire State Building via his climb which transformed what had been a gigantic white elephant moneypit that had been completed smack in the worst part of the Depression into THE famous address NYC address in the world apart from the Statue of Liberty! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on October 5, 2009, 7:16 am

Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman - TV Shows
Somewhat like "Coronation Street" in the UK, this was a soap based on working class characters- only was somewhat of a zany dark comedy . It didn't take long for it to go from being merely quirky to being a sad self-parody- and it didn't help that the main character went from being a sympathetic spacey doormat to being an annoying whiner. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on October 5, 2009, 7:07 am

MSNBC - Random Topics
Vampires?!That's incredibly bogus of them, SVN! Instead of the usual tartar sauce and lemon wedges, it sounds like this cable station needs to be sent some garlic cloves! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on October 5, 2009, 7:00 am

Woody Allen - Celebrities
In spite of his own at best questionable dealings re Mia Farrow's family,he was amongst the movie set who signed the petition protesting the recent arrest of Roman Polanski. Mr Polanski was SAME individual who pled guilty to having sex with a minor ( a girl of 13 years old- who prosecutors believe had been given a Quaalude prior to him having his way with her despite her saying no)- and who then flew out of the US to avoid prosecution then lived the high life for 30 years. NOW will others join me in boycotting BOTH their productions instead of considering them to be elite artists whose work must be worshipped without the slightest regard to the human wreckage they've reaped?! I haven't bothered to see one work of Mr. Allen's since what happened with Mia Farrow's family (and frankly don't miss them) and have NEVER seen a Polanski film made since that crime had been committed. I don't give my hardearned monies to those who I know treated children like that! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on October 3, 2009, 11:47 am

Star Trek TNG - TV Shows
Exploding Console, Thanks for going to the trouble for the step-by-step discourse re Tasha Yar's daughter! I know you were doing your best trying to rationalize the preposterous. Sometimes preposterous situations work in fiction if brought forth via logical steps and if the scenarios prove clever and/or funny. Unfortunately, Exploding Console, your well-intentioned discourse doesn't change my POV that the show boned via writers having needlessly dug themselves into a hole over a minor character who was not only annoying but a bore! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 30, 2009, 7:14 am

M. Night Shyamalan - Celebrities
Thanks for clearing that up for me, Mythigator! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 29, 2009, 9:45 am

Robert Duvall - Celebrities
I have to agree, Stephanie! How he was able to project a symphony of heroic angst and emotions in his few onscreen moments as the mute Boo Radley in "To Kill a Mockingbird" more eloquently than lesser actors could have done with the most verbose soliloquys is something that has to be seen to be believed- and something scholars will study for centuries! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 28, 2009, 11:35 am

Joanie Loves Chachi - TV Shows
I'd point out how it boned Day One but it would be as challenging as shooting ducks (or fish) in a barrel!Lame! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 27, 2009, 4:24 pm

New Mission: Impossible, The - TV Shows
Why did they even bother? Not only were the new characters even more boring than the originals but they didn't even keep the one good thing(the opening theme)! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 27, 2009, 4:17 pm

M. Night Shyamalan - Celebrities
The last one of his movies I bothered with as "Signs" and I liked how he was able to scare the audience with the unseen entities. I mean, at the theater I saw it in, I heard one guy yell 'I'm OUTTA HERE!' and actually RUN out of the theater with a friend never to return even though this was totally taking place on a movie screen. Still, I agree that water ending was a bit flawed- and I also thought it was odd that they kept referring to Mel Gibson's minister character as 'Father' even though it's well known that Catholic priests called that aren't allowed to wed or acknowledge offspring. Moreover, I thought it a bit much that Gibson's character would STILL consider Shyamalan's character a friend- despite him having fatally run over the minister's late wife! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 27, 2009, 4:14 pm

Garfield (comic strip) - Random Topics
I guess when Garfield went from being a hidden gem curmudgeonly cat-about-town who taunted Odie and prowled the streets to a lovable pop-culture icon who almost never left Jon's house! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 27, 2009, 3:52 pm
