I take it you all have heard Al Gore's temper tantrum? http://www.realaspen.com/article/767/Speaking-in-Aspen-Colorado-Al-Gore-calls-bullshit-on-global-warming-naysayers -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 12, 2011, 2:36 am

Lifetime Movie Network (LMN) - Random Topics
Jay Leno once called it the "My Husband Hit Me Network". Since that joke was rather funny, I'll have to assume he stole it. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 12, 2011, 1:23 am

Ludacris - Celebrities
Now young people everywhere spell the word "ludicrous" wrong thanks to this guy, much to my annoyance. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 10, 2011, 1:25 pm

Eddie Murphy - Celebrities
This is another one of those guys that I just don't get. I think he boned the fish before I was old enough to see his movies. Apparently he was really good on Saturday Night Live, but that was during the "lost years" that they never rerun. All I see now is a loudmouth with a huge ego. And unfortunately, I have heard his music, including the Whatzupwitu duet with Wacko Jacko. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 9, 2011, 10:20 pm

That '80s Show - TV Shows
Someone on JTS once made the keen observation that That 70's Show was made by people that loved the 1970s and That 80's Show was made by people that hated the 1980s. I totally agree. Also the characters on That 70s Show felt like real people (at least in the early seasons), whereas That 80's show's characters were just walking, talking '80s cliches. And if you haven't seen it already, check out That 80's Show creator Mark Brazill's epic flamewar with Judd Apatow. Brazill comes off like the scum he is and makes freakin' Judd Apatow look dignified. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 9, 2011, 12:53 pm

Normal, Ohio - TV Shows
My problem with this show is the same I have with Ross's ex-wife on Friends. IIRC, this show was about a formerly married father that has recently come out of the closet. We see that his ex-wife and kids are alternately angry and messed up by it. His actions come off as extremely self-centered to me. It was played as if Goodman just decides he's gay one day and ditches his family. And this is supposed to be a comedy. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 9, 2011, 10:35 am

Patrick Stewart - Celebrities
Have you guys seen the bizarre fight between Stewart and some fat guy at a UK awards show? Patrick tells him, "If you fancy the Jonas Brothers, cover your belly." -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 8, 2011, 11:19 pm

Video Games - Random Topics
After putting some thought into it, I've decided that video games peaked at the 16-bit era. You could finally have colorful and detailed sprites, intricate music, and a sparing amount of digitized speech. Also by that time most games had implemented continues, game saves, and actual game endings. (Most 8-bit games didn't and are frustrating in retrospect because of it.) After that time, games just got too complicated: Every game becoming polygon based 3D, too many buttons and difficult controls, too many talky cinema scenes, etc. And don't even get me started on DLC. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 5, 2011, 9:52 pm

Clue (The Movie) - Movie Series
"Universal Studios announced that a remake is in the works with a release date set for 2013." Ugghhhhhhhhh. Really? http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1385861/ -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 3, 2011, 10:01 pm

Topher Grace - Celebrities
To be fair to Topher, that probably seemed like the role of a lifetime at the time. That '70s Show had already boned the fish at that point; the writers had started writing Eric Foreman as an annoying geek loser. "Sam Raimi wants ME to play Venom in the next Spider-Man film!?" I can't blame him for jumping at that chance. Kind of like how Ewan MacGregor jumped at the chance to play Obi-Wan. Neither actor was to know the true horror that was to come. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 2, 2011, 11:49 pm

Game of Death - Movie Series
The Japanese edited together all the footage they could find in their G.O.D. project. That version is probably the best treatment this movie will ever get. (The "official" Hollywood version is a joke.) There's been talk for years of trying to complete the film as it was intended, perhaps with CGI or digital face swaps. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 2, 2011, 5:12 pm

PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) - Random Topics
Ugh, here's another one, this one very recent. Dutch scientists "exploring whether decapitation is a humane way to sacrifice lab animals" by chopping off their heads. They're trying to answer the question if a head still lives after decapitation. Do we really NEED to know this? Who cares. This kind of senseless killing is what PeTA should be focusing on. http://blog.seattlepi.com/thebigblog/2011/07/27/how-long-can-you-live-after-your-head-is-chopped-off/ -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 2, 2011, 1:27 pm

Planet of the Apes - Movie Series
I'm not familiar with the book, so I can't comment there. But the original film was cowritten by the Rod Serling, the MASTER of the twist ending. The twist worked because it took what you thought you knew about the film and turned it on its side. It made us understand why Dr. Zaius was being such a bastard-- they had just cause to fear/hate man. Burton's film just ended with a "Huh?" I guess he felt pressure to end with a twist like the original and tacked that nonsense on at the end. The problem with twist endings (as M. Night has learned) is they don't really work when the audience is expecting them to happen. Early reviews at RT for the new film are positive; I hope it really is good. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 2, 2011, 1:37 am

Animal Liberation Front (ALF) - Random Topics
I think some scientists are sadists. I've heard theories that they were nerds that were picked on in school and they take out their frustrations on animals. If you haven't heard about D. Harry Harlow's "Pit of despair", look it up on Wikipedia (or elsewhere if you don't trust it). Harlow's experiments were completely pointless. What exactly did he prove? If you isolate a baby monkey in a box during its entire childhood, it will grow up to be psychotic. Wow, what a revelation. Any of us could have told this guy that. I'm afraid I don't know much about ALF specifically, but I could see myself supporting an illegal intervention in cases like the "Pit of despair". -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 2, 2011, 12:14 am

Michael Moore - Celebrities
Michael Moore was one of the only celebs I can recall that believed O.J. didn't do it. He probably still thinks that. I should have realized he was an idiot back then. There were some vids of him being a general ass in Japan (apparently he hates them; they are capitalists), but YouTube pulled them.

Thundercats - TV Shows
Caught the remake today. So far, so good! I even liked the new Snarf. I have no real nostalgia for the old show, so I can honestly say this one seems like a real improvement. Let's hope the new guys keep it up and don't drop the ball on this one. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on July 31, 2011, 12:55 am

Feminism - Random Topics
My dad always said if feminists really wanted equal treatment they would demand to register for the draft. Now you've got women in jobs that they shouldn't hold. Here in Washington state we just had a case where this little young blonde was working as a guard at a mens' prison and was overpowered and brutally strangled to death by a violent rapist. All the media talking heads keep asking why this happened and how her death could have been prevented and NO ONE has dared point out the obvious. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on July 28, 2011, 2:21 am

Jim Belushi - Celebrities
Do I blame Jim Belushi for capitalizing on his brother's success? Not at all. Do I respect him for it? No. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on July 26, 2011, 9:25 pm
