1980s - Random Topics
My favorite decade. I'm sure there were things wrong with the decade that I wasn't aware of at the time, but I don't care. It seems strange to me that there aren't more TV shows and movies that capitalize on '80s nostalgia. (Besides "That '80s Show", which sucked.) -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on November 13, 2011, 6:00 pm

Ashton Kutcher - Celebrities
What an idiot. It's ironic too; he's been making specious claims about The Village Voice and Seattle Weekly selling underage girls yet when there's ACTUAL molestation of boys, he's OK with it. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on November 12, 2011, 6:17 pm

1950's - Random Topics
I kind of knew this argument would happen. The baby boomers had built up the 50's as some kind of paradise and the recent trend to tear down that image is only natural. Not having been there, I can only judge it on what I've been told. My parents and other people of that age group (including minorities) do indeed say it was a great time to be alive. Now everyone says that about their childhood era though. But my grandma also has fond memories of it. After the depression, WWII, and Korea, it must have been a welcome relief to not have turmoil. She also worked a full time office job from the war into the 1980s. My other grandmother worked as a schoolteacher during that time also. So I don't know where this "women couldn't work" nonsense comes from. So in short, I'm sure it was not perfect in any way, but probably better than these depressing times. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on November 9, 2011, 12:59 am

GANTZ - TV Shows
Watched the live-action version today. I thought it was pretty good; hopefully the sequel gives us a good conclusion this time. I wonder if Hollywood will try to remake this? They'll probably get around to adapting it 20 years too late like with Dragonball and the upcoming Akira. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on November 7, 2011, 7:05 pm

Pirate Bay, The - Websites
The best part of this site is its "Legal threats" section. I really envy this Swede that gets to openly mock (American) lawyers. That's a freedom we Americans don't have. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on November 7, 2011, 12:41 am

Unsolved Mysteries - TV Shows
I've been renting the DVDs recently and even bought a few of the sets. What a great series. I have now watched all the DVDs except for the "Psychics" ones. Honestly, after seeing Sylvia Brown, John Edward, James Van Praagh up close and personal on TV (since Unsolved Mysteries ended) and seen what frauds they are, the mystique of "psychics" has kind of worn off to me. I'd rather watch a DVD set of their "Disappeared Persons" or "Lost Loves" segments. I also remember seeing some really inventive bank heists on there. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on November 5, 2011, 6:48 pm

I've been pissed at these guys ever since I was a kid and they canceled ALF after a cliffhanger. But man, that idiot Jeff Zucker really took the network into a tailspin. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on November 4, 2011, 5:43 pm

Beavis and Butthead - TV Shows
The only weird thing about them riffing on these reality shows is that the people on these shows (like the porn addict or the Jersey Shore guys) are actually dumber than Beavis and Butthead. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on October 31, 2011, 8:08 pm

Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) - Random Topics
The professor is a woman, but yes, she's black. IIRC these guys were once the go-to resource on legitimate hate groups. Now that they've cried wolf over and over on any group or individual even slightly right-of-center, they've totally killed their credibility. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on October 31, 2011, 8:01 pm

Fist of the North Star - TV Shows
This is one of my most favorite anime ever, so it's hard for me to vote. The show probably did "peak" after Kenshiro's final deathmatch with Raoh. The series had been building up to that for years and built Raoh up to arguably the greatest anime villain in history. All episodes past that point are called "Fist of the North Star 2"; it's debatable if its a new show or justa new "season". These new villains all had to live in the shadow of Raoh, but I think they were still solid and fun. Falco was a great "heroic" villain and the Land of Asura episodes were basically "Kenshiro in Sparta", which was fun. So I guess I'll go with "Never Boned", though I could see why people might dislike "2". -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on October 29, 2011, 6:40 pm

Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) - Random Topics
Perhaps these guys were non-partisan and respected once, but now they brand anyone that doesn't fall in line with Liberal ideology a bigot or hatemonger. I was just reading about how this well-respected professor, who happens to be black, got branded by them as a white supremacist and landed on their "hate" list for opposing illegal immigration. http://thenewamerican.com/usnews/politics/9112-protecting-rights-loyal-americans-targeted-by-the-splc -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on October 27, 2011, 12:54 am

Jackie Chan - Celebrities
I loved all of Jackie's '80s Hong Kong films. Most of his Hollywood movies were complete garbage, though. Even he's gone on record as hating them. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on October 20, 2011, 6:14 pm

Muammar Gaddafi - Celebrities
Yeah, I'm not sad to see this scumbag kick the bucket. I just hope the new government isn't worse. The fact they refuse to hand Lockerbie Bomber Abdelbaset al-Megrahi over to us is not comforting. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on October 20, 2011, 6:11 pm

Terra Nova - TV Shows
I only watched the pilot. The concept sounded great: People from a dystopian future seek refuge in prehistoric times and pioneer their own civilization. Then when I actually watch the thing, it's really not like that. Because of some silly contrivances, they go to prehistoric times-- and the civilation is already founded. This generic TV family doesn't even have to build their own house; it's already built for them for some reason. Would the story force the characters to tread carefully, with the threat of mucking up humanity's timeline? Nope, all that is handwaved away with an "parallel universe" explanation. The casting is all "Dawson's Creek/90210" perfect-looking Hollywood types. Their clothes look like they came from the local mall and not hand-made. I really should have known the show was doomed when I Brannon Braga's name in the credits, the guy behind Voyager and Enterprise. Apparently so much money is going to these useless producers that they can't afford props! http://geeks.thedailywh.at/2011/10/18/low-budget-tv-props-of-the-day/ -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on October 18, 2011, 10:01 pm

President of the United States - Random Topics
I think we Americans also get the leaders we deserve. We should be demanding better candidates. We should be thinking out of the box; beyond black/white, liberal/conservative, Democrat/Republican. Have the guts to support 3rd party candidates. But most people don't want to do this. That South Park episode where they had to choose between the Giant Douche and the Turd Sandwich was right on the money; they could rerun that episode every four years and it would still be relevant. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on October 15, 2011, 2:21 am

Saddam Hussein - Celebrities
I'd really, really like to believe that Iraq is better off now than it was under Saddam, but I'm just not seeing it. 4,477 Americans have died in Iraq and I wish there was something to show for it. Perhaps the Shiites have it better now, but everyone else has it much worse. See here for more info on the ongoing genocide of other Iraqi minorities: http://tinyurl.com/iraqminorities I feel that if the Iraqis really wanted Saddam out, they would have ousted him themselves. We saw the Eastern Bloc overtake their Communist oppressors in the late '80s and early '90s, so it obviously can be done. There were two events that made me realize the Iraq Invasion was wrong. 1) A few days after the U.S. troops ousted Saddam and liberated Iraq, the Iraqi ingrates started burning US flags and telling their liberators to GTFO. 2) When watching the video of Saddam's hanging, Saddam was cool and composed up to the end, whereas his executioners were whooping it up and jumping around like animals. And yes, he was a horrible person and I won't vote Never Boned for him. He boned when he got too arrogant wouldn't let those UN inspectors in. He basically signed his own death warrant by doing that. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on October 15, 2011, 1:50 am
