Jefferson Starship - Music Groups
I actually saw Starship live once back in the 80's. We only stayed long enough to do the songs 'Miracles' and we left right after 'Somebody to Love'. The ONLY reason we even bought tickets to see them in the first place was that The Outfield was opening for them (remember those guys?). -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on November 30, 2010, 12:52 pm

Pelirojo- OMG!!! LOL! I had TOTALLY forgotten they appeared in the Star Wars Holiday Special. MAJOR boning event right there. Ha ha ha ha. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on November 30, 2010, 12:47 pm

Special Unit 2 - TV Shows
This show was so bizarre and outlandish to begin with, it was nearly bone-proof. This used to come on just before one of the Star Treks, so I would watch this while waiting for Trek to come on. Special nod to the character 'Carl'. He constantly reminded me of a guy at work both in attitude as well as general appearance. Made the show kinda fun to watch in that regard. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on November 23, 2010, 7:48 pm

Dolfan- That ad was truly one of the funniest things I have EVER seen on TV. I'm sure that the reason it hasn't shown up in some form on YouTube is the fact that it ran for a much shorter time than the typical LC's ad ran (didn't stay on long enough to get caught on tape). Maybe the networks felt it was in poor taste (ie: implied vomiting- you know the networks back then were still a little skittish about any sort of excretory or scatalogical references either implied or blatant) so perhaps they urged LC's to pull the ad prematurely. I just hope it turns up somewhere, someday. Little Ceasar's- if you're reading this- LEAK THAT AD ONTO YOUTUBE!!! -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on November 17, 2010, 5:18 pm

Snopes - Websites
Ditto what Mythigator says. I still continue to find Snopes.com to be the leading authority on just about every hoax, urban legend and email scam out there. Even when I get one of those goofy emails that says "I checked this out on Sbnopes and it's true" or something like that, I still go to snopes and check it out anyway. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on November 16, 2010, 5:11 pm

Little Caesars - Random Topics
As for the quality of the pizza- meh. I've had worse. The thing I miss most about Little Ceasar's is the TV commercials. For a time Little Ceasar's had some of the funniest and most imaginative commercials on TV. My personal favorite was one I call "Uncle Nunzio." To give you some perspective to set up the ad- around the time "Uncle Nunzio" aired, there were a bunch of new spaghetti sauces that had come on the market and were blitzing the airwaves with these schmaltzy, 'a taste of the old-world' type ads hawking these new sauces complete with somewhat dreamy imagery of the Italian countryside and so on and so forth (I think you get my drift). Anyway, there was this commercial that starts out just like the aforementioned spaghetti sauce ads going on about somebody's old Uncle Nunzio who got up at the break of dawn, chose only the freshest ingredients and spent all day whipping up his old-world culinary masterpieces. Then they cut to the stereotypical Italian family all laughing and talking seated at tables in a beautiful lush garden with fountains and statue art reminiscent of Italy preparing to enjoy this meal. This portion of the commercial ends with the calm male voice-over saying "...and the entire family can agree on one thing- it's tastes AWFUL." Then suddenly everyone starts making faces as if they had just been told they'd just put dog poop in their mouths. A fly flies over one of the pots of food, makes a frantic buzzzing sound then drops dead. A kid dumps a plate of Uncle Nunzio's food into a fountain with a statue then the statue throws up. Then they make some suggestion that the family would've done better to go to Little Ceasar's Pizza and they throw up some splash screen with their latest deal. Funny Funny ad. I keep looking for it on YouTube, but it hasn't shown up there yet. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on November 15, 2010, 9:37 am

South Park - TV Shows
For me, South Park has boned it for good with this whole Coon & Friends story line. Very boring. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on November 10, 2010, 5:11 pm

Blue Mountain State - TV Shows
I've seen the previews for this show- Now I'm no prude/puritan, and I do occasionally enjoy some good raunchy humor (as long as it's well written) but this show looks as if it's trying HARD to be Porky's with a football team. No dice. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on October 28, 2010, 11:05 am

Action Jackson (Toy) - Random Topics
Nice try Mego! This toy was a "poor man's G.I. Joe." One year, my brother wanted a G.I. Joe. That's what he asked for: A G.I. Freaking Joe. He opened up the box in great anticipation of all the GI Joe missions he'd now be able to join me on- only to find in the box- An Action Jackson. Talk about the air coming out of your tires. That was the hiss heard 'round the world. Just to give you some perspective, for a young American boy in the 70's, getting a G.I. Joe was a big deal. The only modern analogy for GI Joe vs Action Jackson I can come up for is this. Imagine you're about 7 or 8 years old and you've been asking for LEGOS all year. Finally, the package arrives and the day comes when you open it up only to find- not LEGOS but MEGA-BLOCKS. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on October 20, 2010, 3:29 pm

Monkees, The - TV Shows
TV shows come and TV shows go. Some of those shows, though relatively short lived shine very brightly and stay with you for the rest of your life. The Monkees, for me, is one of those shows. If I live to be 125 years old, I will never forget this show. Funny, Funny, Funny stuff. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on October 18, 2010, 11:43 am

Wizard of Oz, The - Movie Series
Remakes have been done. Anybody remember back in the late 70's? "The Wiz"? It was, essentially, a black interpretation of 'The Wizard of Oz'(instead of Dorothy being from rural Kansas, she was from an inner-city neighborhood, etc, etc). I saw it when it came out and I actually really enjoyed it. Also, I am absolutely certain that a remake (of sorts) was done, If I'm not mistaken, by some cable channel (SyFy seems to be coming to mind) just a few years back. Can't recall if it was a stand-alone movie or if it was a mini or short run series. The only way to describe it was that it was kind of an Alt-Rock (somewhat darker) version of the Wizard of Oz. I'll have to look that one up. But- all that being said- nothing will ever hold a candle to the original (whatever that means). :) -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on October 18, 2010, 7:57 am

Jean Shepherd - Celebrities
Jean Shepherd was a very gifted author. One time I managed to find the book of short stories that the film 'A Christmas Story' was derived from 'In God We Trust. All Others Pay Cash.' (or something like that). Funny, funny stuff. Supposedly, the Ralphie character was based on Mr. Shepherd himself and the stories were essentially autobiographical (with some artistic liberties taken here and there). You should definitely read up on Mr. Shepherd's 'I, Libertine' prank he pulled back in his radio days. Hilarious story. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I,_Libertine -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on October 15, 2010, 5:03 pm

Actually, I think you meant "Mr. Spock." Dr. Spock was a famous child psychologist. Yep, I'm a wee bit of a Trek-nerd. Sorry. :) -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on October 14, 2010, 4:01 pm

Gilligan's Island - TV Shows
I would be inclined to think that if the events of Gilligan's Island had happened to a real group of castaways- After Gilligan had messed up the first two or three opportunities to get off the island, he probably would've met with an "unfortunate accident" in the Lagoon. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on October 12, 2010, 3:12 pm
