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

Bones - TV Shows
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

Munsters Today, The - TV Shows
That show was not good-period. It boggles my mind to read that it went on for three seasons. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on October 5, 2010, 11:49 am

Jenny McCarthy - Celebrities
The ONLY reason I tuned into the show Singled Out was her- then came that fateful day. The day she farted into a microphone (I'm not kidding folks). The magic was gone at that point. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on October 5, 2010, 11:33 am

Sagging - Random Topics
I believe you are right about that 'Dolfan'. Seems that I can recall occasionally seeing someone dressed like that as early as 1989. Though what I saw wasn't quite as extreme as it eventually got over the next 10 years and beyond. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on September 30, 2010, 4:39 pm

Walker, Texas Ranger - TV Shows
"... so bad, that its good." Absolutely. The 'badness' of that show was 'water cooler talk' at the office for awhile for us. We laughed about how horribly over-the-top the villains were portrayed (seriously, I almost expected to see Mr. Freeze or The Penguin show up on an episode) and how virtually every episode featured an explosion somewhere. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on September 20, 2010, 12:52 pm

Robot Chicken - TV Shows
The two best Star Wars bits they ever did was one where Palpatine is in his office and Vader calls him on his cell phone to let him know that the Death Star was just blown up. The Other one was where they showed what happened in that 'dinner' that Han, Leia and Chewbacca had with Vader on Bespin. I just about came unglued watching those. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on September 15, 2010, 9:41 am

Where's George? - Websites
I played the whole 'Where's George?' thing for about a year. Finally got fed up with it when none of my bills were coming back, so I just quit. Flash forward 2 years later, I gt an email from 'Where's George' telling me one of my bills got a hit. It was the highlight of my day. Pretty much radio silence from then on. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on September 13, 2010, 7:26 am

Rap (music) - Random Topics
I was okay with Rap when it was fun Sugar Hill Gang, MC Hammer, Young MC, Etc. However, it did seem that at one point in the early 90's it looked almost as if Rap was starting to die out and give way to something else when Rick Dees went on the Arsenio show and stated with confidence that Rap was 'on the way out.' That, to me seems to be the point where Rap rallied and went into overkill mode with all of the "cop-killer" and hyper-sexualized themes. I blame Rick Dees. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on September 8, 2010, 12:32 pm

Happy Days - TV Shows
Mr Fox wrote "If this was really the beginning of a downward spiral, why did the show stay on the air for six more seasons and shoot an additional 164 episodes?" Well why are shows like 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' and 'Big Brother' still on the air. People will watch garbage and love it, I suppose. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on September 7, 2010, 9:47 am

Garth Brooks - Music Groups
Well, he keeps announcing that he's retiring then eventually releases a CD or goes on tour. Never was a big country music fan (though oddly enough, I DJ'd for a country station for a number of years), but I liked quite a few of GB's singles. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on September 3, 2010, 9:52 am

Apple Inc. - Random Topics
"Yesterday, Apple jumped onto the social networking bandwagon with iTunes Ping...." Awwwww crap. Now I suppose my employer will take away our access to iTunes now. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on September 2, 2010, 4:12 pm

Stevie Nicks - Music Groups
fletch- I totally know what you mean about the voice. LOL!! I recall an old South Park episode where the boys are trying to sneak a goat onto a plane to take it back to Afganistan. The military corners the boys and questions them about what they are doing and about that time the goat lets out a bleat. The soldiers then think that the goat is Stevie Nicks going to Afganistan to entertain the troops so they let them on the plane. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on September 2, 2010, 11:24 am

Little House on the Prairie - TV Shows
I'm white and I would never dream of cussing out a cop (though there have been a couple of times in my life I really wanted to)- for fear I would not only get the business end of a baton but also be calling my wife an hour or two later asking her to come down to the jail house to bail me out. Just sayin'. As for Little House on the Prairie, It was a decent way to kill a half hour or so. I always found it to be a little too sugary-sweet for my tastes, but there are worse shows on television. I met Dean butler once (he played Almanzo). -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on September 2, 2010, 11:20 am

Hell's Kitchen (U.S.) - TV Shows
I've never been a fan of 'reality' shows in general, but I simply cannot get into this one merely for the fact that I briefly worked in an upscale restaurant when I was in college. I left because I was tired of listening to the Chef and Souz Chef both throw temper tantrums and berate everyone within spitting distance at the slightest provokation. Why would I want to watch a show about that? -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on September 2, 2010, 11:01 am

Gong Show, The - TV Shows
I watched the show to see Gene Gene the Dancin' Machine. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on August 23, 2010, 12:41 pm

Addams Family, The - TV Shows
I agree with you completely TheDeanofNYC. Comparing those two programs is truly like comparing an apple to an orange. Frankly, I liked both shows for the divergent reasons you've outlined. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on August 23, 2010, 12:06 pm
