CiCis Pizza - Random Topics
CiCis pizza- ughhh. I shudder everytime someone in my presence so much as entertains the thought of darkening the doorway of that place. People think Little Ceasars is bad? CiCis Pizza makes Little Ceasars look like Uno's by comparison. CiCis is some seriously 'ghetto' pizza. The salad bar always looks like the vegetable bar at Subway got drunk and puked on a table. The lettuce is always wilted and gloppy the dressings always seem to look like a couple of kids got into a fight with it. At least, that's what it's been like at locations I've visited. 'Oh! We're going to CiCis? No thanks. I think I'll just stay here and have what I can dig out of this old ashtray over'. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 8, 2012, 11:34 am

Bob Saget - Celebrities
Pelirojo- I completely agree with you. I've been in the entertainment industry in a couple of different capacities and I have also worked in Radio as a DJ myself. I also know a little bit about marketing & promotion thanks to my current line of work. So I guess you're kinda preaching to the choir. :). Bottomline is, if you're out there promoting yourself and your latest pet project, you've gotta play by the rules (whatever they are). First rule in this case- know your audience and who you are talking to. What flies on Howard Stern might not go over quite as well on Good Morning America. The only thing I can possibly think might have been going on with regards to Saget and the radio interview was that he really didn't want to do the interview in the first place and was intentionally making it difficult. That actually happens sometimes. That or he was just being mischievious and wanted to see how much of the interview would make it to air. Guess the joke was kinda on Saget in that case. I don't get my underwear in a knot if a comedian/ entertainer wants to drop some cuss words into his/her act. It only really bothers me when it's done to such a frequency yhat it begins to eclipse whats being said and is either done purely for shock value or simply is a crutch for spicing up otherwise dull, bland content. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 6, 2012, 1:23 am

Rockford Files, The - TV Shows
Always loved the theme song to this show. I was a child (and a Hotwheels collecting fool) when this show was in it's Prime-Time heyday and to this day, every time I hear the opening theme to The Rockford Files, for some reason I get this crazy association with one of my all-time favorite Hotwheels cars: 'Funny Money' a purple hot rod version of an armored car with stylized orange and green flames down the sides. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 5, 2012, 1:16 am

Arthur - TV Shows
I saw the episode when Arthur hit DW. Secretly, my first thought was "'Bout damn time." That DW is a bratty little pain in the rump. I was the elder sibling of two (and actually nearly the same age range). Frankly, I would imagine that if Arthur and DW were for real, those two would be in 'knock-down, drag-outs' all the time. Also, having been an older brother, as I watched the episode- like other posters- I was a bit miffed that Arthur was treated like a felon when in reality DW kinda brought the whole situation on herself by breaking Arthur's plane and not getting her comeuppance from the parents for disrespecting someone else's property. In the end, was Arthur wrong to hit DW? His anger was justified, but perhaps the 'violent' response was unnecessary. In my analysis as both a parent and a sibling, BOTH children should have been punished for their respective roles in the altercation. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 5, 2012, 12:56 am

What's Happening Now!! - TV Shows
'What's Happening!' Kicked A$$ the first couple of seasons. 'What's Happening Now!' just made me sad when I watched it. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 4, 2012, 3:19 pm

Bob Saget - Celebrities
Oh it gets even better: In the director's commentary track for the film Dumb & Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd, the director states (paraphrased) that Saget insisted that the writers have the female love interest's Dad, the character Saget played, use the word "$h-t" multiple times because he, Saget, thought people would think it hilariously funny to see/hear Bob Saget using profanity. Sadly that entire movie was profoundly UNfunny- and it was probably because of examples like that moment where the inmates were obviously running the asylum. But yes, Mr. Saget seems to go a little overboard with the profanity thing. Guess he figures he got typecast back in his Full House/AFHV days and he's been working diligently to break the curse. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 4, 2012, 3:14 pm

Christmas Story, A - Movie Series
As for the Schwartz thing- yeah in reality, that would be a rotten ting for a kid to do (and sometimes kids do rotten things, even kids who turn out to be pretty decent adults). However, I never ever, in the number of times I have seen this film, gotten the impression that the narrator ('Adult Ralphie'- who was, BTW, played by Jean Shepherd himself) was truly "defending", as an adult, what he did as a kid. If anything, I got the distinct impression he was just being facetious about HIMSELF. That's just my take on that particular bit. Regardless, I still like the movie. No, it certainly wasn't a 'shoulda got an Oscar' project, but it's fun (in small doses that is- I am WITH everyone who says that 'A Christmas Story' certainly doesn't rank 24 hour marathon showings like we seen to see somewhere virtually every Christmas) and it has a nostalgic quality to it that takes me back to much simpler times in my own life. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on December 12, 2011, 9:56 am

Christmas Story, A - Movie Series
Wow. Just- wow. And here I thought this was just some silly little Christmas movie from the early 80's where the adult narrator was recollecting a fondly remembered bygone Christmas where he was telling it from the POV of being a kid (but tempering it somewhat with the clarity of middle age). -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on December 9, 2011, 9:26 am

Led Zeppelin - Music Groups
Actually, I recall an interview with Robert Plant rightafter after The Honeydrippers started charting where Plant said that it was a project they always wanted to do together. I'm just guessing that they wanted to put a little time distance between Zeppelin and the Honeydrippers. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on November 23, 2011, 1:04 pm

If I' not mistaken, he now has a home renovation show on DIY. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on November 22, 2011, 9:59 am

iCarly - TV Shows
Speaking as a father with two kids who fall within the target demographic for this show- from my observations, Gibby is a popular supporting character, particularly with the younger part of the age range. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on November 22, 2011, 9:49 am

2011 Vote for New Patron Saint of BTF - Random Topics
I weighed my choices carefully. It's no secret that I loathe the Kardashians- all I know is that they cannot go away soon enough. Mel G.- Not front and center enough IMO. My vote went to Lohan. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on November 21, 2011, 10:38 am

Little Caesars - Random Topics
Little Ceasar's is not the best pizza around, I'll give it that. IMO though CiCi's is WORSE. Don't EVEN get me started on CiCi's Pizza. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on November 21, 2011, 10:28 am

DVR'd it the other night. Watched it last night. Just like old times. Just like old times. :) -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on November 1, 2011, 11:54 am

G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero (1985) - TV Shows
The best thing about GI Joe were those crazy parody videos derived from the old series that were floating around the internet a few years ago. Anybody remember "Hey Kid! I'm a computah!" or "PORK CHOP SANDWICHES!!" -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on October 2, 2011, 12:43 am

Perry Mason (TV series) - TV Shows
Actually fletch- there was ONE episode in the classic series where Mr. Mason DID lose the case (don't know much about the later series Raymond Burr did not long before his death). I cannot recall the details of the episode (much less the title), but they don't seem to air that ep very often, if ever. But there is, at least, one episode out there where he actually LOST the case. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on October 2, 2011, 12:37 am

Red Dwarf - TV Shows
I never knew for the longest time that they actually made a pilot of an 'American Version' of Red Dwarf (only the actor who played Kryten reprised his role for this). That would've been something to see. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on September 19, 2011, 12:08 pm

South Park - TV Shows
Well, I'm glad to hear they were just clowning around with the show. I look forward to some new episodes. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on September 19, 2011, 11:46 am
