Jim Carrey - Celebrities
I'm with the others here. I haven't heard anything about Carrey being a Scientologist. Hell, even if he was, I'm pretty good at separating the art from the artist. I'm a fan of many of JC's movies- but, I've seen the previews for this new movie he's in with the penguins. Looks painful. Could be a 'boning moment' but as I have not seen the movie, I'll respectfully reserve judgement. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on July 5, 2011, 12:11 am

Florence Henderson - Celebrities
Since when is getting Crabs considered an STD? Isn't that really more of a sexually transmitted infestation? When a kid get's headlice at school, I don't think they are considered to have a diesease. Just an infestation. I'm pretty sure it's probably the same thing with crabs. But maybe I'm wrong- any medical professionals wanna weigh in on this one? -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on June 30, 2011, 12:23 pm

MasterChef (USA) - TV Shows
I was a Radio/TV/Film major in college for a time. In the very first TV class I took, the professor got up to the podium and the first thing out of his mouth was this: "If there is ANYTHING I want you to come away with after spending a semester in this course it is this- NOTHING you see on TV is real. NOTHING." Predictably, one of the students raised their hand and asked "What about the News?" His response was "I repeat- NOTHING you see on TV is real." -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on June 24, 2011, 9:41 am

Sagging - Random Topics
Oh BTW- on the subject of 'sagging', the city of Fort Worth, TX now is barring passengers who insist on 'sagging' from using public transportation. Either you hike up your britches or you cannot board the bus. Their motto is "Pull up your pants or find another ride." I LOVE IT!!

Sagging - Random Topics
Okay, so it looks as if my original attempted post did not go through after all. Putting it succinctly, I've made it clear that I'm no fan of 'sagging' however, I watched the video that was embedded in the article and I must say that the gentleman handled himself with GREAT restraint under the circumstances (and as I understand it, he did ultimately cooperate fully with authorities and left the plane without incident). He did offer what could be considered a reasonable explanation as to why he was 'sagging' in the first place. My only comment about that to the gentleman would be 'Next time, wear some clothes that fit better.' What hacks me off the most about this is the obvious double standard on the part of the airline in that thery allowed the scantily clad cross-dresser to fly and that even after other passengers complained, nothing was done by staff to correct the situation. THAT is what grinds my gears. I'm sorry, but if they are going to hold one passenger accountable for not being appropriately dressed by reasonable community standards then certainly they should hold ALL passengers accountable for their choice in attire. Sounds as if the suits at US Airways need to have a meeting and form a committee to cobble together a passenger dress code to nip these types of situations in the bud. I won't be surprised to hear of a discrimination lawsuit filed against US Airways over the sagging incident in light of the fact they allowed a scantily clad cross-dresser to fly without incident. (NOTE: this post is not to be construed as an attack upon scantily clad cross-dressers. Not my cup of tea but, I'm a 'live and let live' kind of guy and I say to each their own). -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on June 24, 2011, 9:34 am

Trans-Siberian Orchestra - Music Groups
I cannot honestly say that I am familiar with their greater body of work, but their version of Ding Fries Are Done is the bomb! -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on June 24, 2011, 9:18 am

$&%7!! Dropped my mouse so, because of the posting delay I don't know if the comment I was making was sent through (accidentally). If it was, I will write a continuation of my thought if/when it shows up.... -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on June 23, 2011, 9:29 am

Captain Caveman and the Teen Angels - TV Shows
Is it just me or does Captain Caveman look like Mr. Peanut's unkempt White Trash hillbilly cousin? -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on June 22, 2011, 3:17 pm

Vicar of Dibley, The - TV Shows
I do enjoy the so-called 'Brit-Coms' but I will admit that what you've just described seems to be a common occurrence with a number of the British Sit-Coms I have seen over time. They start out great with a very promising and hilarious premise and then after about two good seasons (or 'series' as they call them on the other side of the pond) they go nuts with it from there on out and completely ruin it. As if the writers sit in the writing room and say "Well they just love it when Mr. Humphries/The Vicar/Hiacynth/etc. does this/that. Let's cram it down the viewers throats!" But, then at the same time, we Yanks are pretty capable of pulling off the ol' 'crashing a sitcom into the wall and making one-dimensional cartoons out of the characters.' After all 'Happy Days' was an American sitcom. :) But, I do agree agree with you about The Vicar of Dibley. Great premise that went really bad after a couple of seasons. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on June 21, 2011, 6:02 pm

South Park - TV Shows
To sum it up: TONS of metaphorical elements in this episode. If I had to analyze it I would say that Sharon & Randy = Comedy Central & Matt & Trey (respectively), Stan = the show South Park itself and the rest of the boys = (possibly) the Fans (maybe, but I'm not sold on that one-yet). Overall, the episode felt like one big "Dear John" letter. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on June 16, 2011, 3:37 pm

Westboro Baptist Church - Random Topics
Hats off to the 2000 counter-protesters! Let's hope this is the start of a trend to squash those Westboro BC hate-mongers. Also to Soggy & DolFan, now y'all just stick around. I don't always agree with everything you guys say, but I enjoy and appreciate your commentary just the same. :) -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on June 15, 2011, 5:56 pm

South Park - TV Shows
I did see it and I thought the very same thing. I can't imagine that Matt & Trey are trying to "take the show in a new direction"- South Park is just not the kind of show you do that sort of thing with. Such a move would completely rub against the grain of the show. They are reportedly committed to the Comedy Channel until 2013, but who knows. If their show 'The Book of Mormon' continues to be the success that it has been and they launch other successful ventures, my guess is that they probably will just renegotiate or buy their contract out (again, just guessing here). Personally, I think they should quit while they are ahead. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on June 15, 2011, 10:49 am

Lucan - TV Shows
As I recall, this was nothing more than a poor man's version of 'The Hulk' which played on the popular media's brief fascination, in the late 70's, with children allegedly raised by wolves. It was such a Hulk rip-off I even think that Lucan's eyes would glow red before he went into 'wolf mode.' -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on June 12, 2011, 11:37 pm

Gilligan's Island - TV Shows
Oh I voted never boned for sure. Gilligan's Island can't be taken seriously. Ever. :) -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on June 7, 2011, 11:16 am

Classmates.com - Websites
I suppose the main point I was making on my previous post is that Classmates.com "boned " WHEN it went from being a free site to being a 'pay-to-play' site. By mentioning Facebook, I was merely pointing out that it IS possible to build a lucrative business on the "free" social networking model. Classmates.com kinda missed the mark on that one and thus boned. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on June 6, 2011, 1:37 pm

Supergirl - Movie Series
Yeah, right around that time it seemed like Helen Slater was everywhere. I kinda had the hots for her and I don't even like blondes that much. Then she just fell off the planet. My problem I had with this movie was how much say-so with regard to product placement the corporate sponsors obviously had. It was so obvious it was laughable (Pepsi, Popeye's Fried Chicken- and there might have been others). I'm betting the director of Supergirl wanted to strangle whoever negotiated those deals. LOL! -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on June 6, 2011, 1:16 pm

Apples Way - TV Shows
I think I was about 9 years old when this show came out and I don't really remember a lot about it. What I do recall is this, 'The Walton's' were VERY popular at the time and 'Apple's Way', when it debuted, was being billed as sort of a 'modern-day Waltons' (you know, kinda like "Hey if you like The Walton's, then yew'll loooooooooove this..."). I remember watching a few episodes, but the show obviously made very little impression on me as I do not recall any of the plots of what I saw and then I just gave up on it. Heck, I had no idea it went more than one season and was even re-booted as a sitcom. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on May 27, 2011, 4:11 pm

Laverne & Shirley - TV Shows
Lenny & Squiggy were the original Dumb & Dumber. However, just like my thoughts on The Ropers (Three's Company) and Flo (Alice), I thought Lenny & Squiggy were pretty funny within the context of 'Laverne & Shirley'. I'm just not sure they could have carried their own show (at least, not for long). But, it would not surprise me to learn that a Lenny & Squiggy spin-off had been considered (spin-offs were all the rage in those days). -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on May 26, 2011, 11:43 pm

Gilligan's Island - TV Shows
Several years ago I was on a jag of reading autobiographies of 60's & 70's TV stars (Barry Williams, Mickey Dolenz, etc.) One of those Auto-Bio's I read was that of Russell Johnson titled 'Here on Gilligan's Isle.' Very entertaining read if you ever come across it. SPOILER ALERT!!!!!!!>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Before reading that book, I never knew that Russell Johnson was one of the top contenders for the role of Captain Christopher Pike in the original Star Trek pilot (the role which ultimately went to Jeffrey Hunter). -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on May 12, 2011, 10:56 am
