Osama bin Laden - Celebrities
Well, happy to say I was wrong about this. I wonder if we got him on purpose or just by chance. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on May 1, 2011, 10:25 pm

Superman - Random Topics
Remember when comics used to be fun and mostly for kids? I _barely_ do. This "social relevancy" trash started happening in the '70s, escalated in the 80s, and now is the norm and is expected of comics. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on May 1, 2011, 6:54 pm

Krispy Kreme - Random Topics
Yeah, I remember that too. Q13 was reporting on it every morning on the news for a while. Everyone went nuts for Krispy Kreme except me, I still haven't gone there. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 30, 2011, 1:47 pm

South Park - TV Shows
Just found out that the infamous episode 201 (that poked fun at the media's reluctance to depict Mohammed) is still censored on the recent DVD, even though it was advertised as being uncensored. And then when Trey & Matt tried to explain the situation on the commentary track, the lawyers bleeped that out, too! The terrorists won. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 29, 2011, 10:31 pm

Super Friends - TV Shows
This was an interesting case because the show started out as complete garbage due to early '70's "sensitivities" and then improved as it went along. It probably did peak with the "Challenge" season (the only season that I actually bothered to purchase), but IIRC the last couple of seasons were pretty good too, even if they were toy commercials. The final season even depicted Batman's origin, which had never been done before onscreen. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 26, 2011, 11:29 pm

BoneTheFish.com - Websites
There is going to be negativity on a website devoted to chronicling when something started to suck. Though I wonder if politicians, political parties, and religions (and animals) really should be here. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 24, 2011, 1:58 pm

Popeye - TV Shows
The spinach thing was based on junk science of the time that has since been disproven. http://www.mentalfloss.com/blogs/archives/45246 -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 23, 2011, 8:51 pm

Rush Limbaugh - Celebrities
I remember hearing about this guy in high school in the '90s when his career really took off. My friends told me how awful and outrageous he was. Then finally I listened to his show and thought it was just plain boring. Just one guy yapping nonstop about boring stuff with only an occasional, heavily-screened sycophantic caller. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 23, 2011, 8:42 pm

Prince - Music Groups
He now wants a law to ban anyone from covering his songs. AFAIK, he's the only one to flat-out refuse to allow Weird Al to parody him. I really can't stand this guy, he thinks his "music" is so sacred. And his songs are written like a 12-year old girl's text messaging. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 22, 2011, 3:58 pm

Fatal Attractions (Animal Planet) - TV Shows
Finally saw an episode last night and I absolutely approve. The media usually glorifies people like this and it's refreshing to see a show that doesn't. In fact, this show is a public service. I think anyone with a Beastmaster fantasy would get a reality check by watching it. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 22, 2011, 2:06 pm

Pornography - Random Topics
They used to have to get creative with the titles when they were doing a movie spoof. Now they use the ACTUAL NAME OF THE MOVIE they're spoofing. "___________: The XXX Parody" or "This is NOT __________". I'm just amazed they can get away with this in such a litigious society. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 20, 2011, 9:59 pm

Loop, The - TV Shows
Meh. One of two FOX shows that debuted about a hipster college grad getting his first corporate job. I can't remember what the other one was called. Half the show was him hanging out with his slacker friends, which was sheer torture. The other half with the kid at work with all the old, out-of-touch suits was the only part that came anywhere near comedy. Wasn't sad to see it go. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 19, 2011, 10:02 pm

South Park - TV Shows
This is one of the problems the show's creators face: fans seem to want different things out of South Park. If they don't do the gross-out/lowbrow stuff like the early days, fans call them sellouts. If they don't do an episode about a real-life current event or controversy, people will complain. And if they do it, they're often branded "preachy". -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 18, 2011, 1:09 am

Nicolas Cage - Celebrities
I never really liked him that much. I just watched Kick Ass the other day and he was easily the worst thing about it. I think it could have been a great movie without him and his overacting. (He calls his acting style "Nouveau Shamanic".) The only reason he got as famous as he did was because he's a Coppola. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 18, 2011, 12:59 am

Larry Linville - Celebrities
Usually I can't stand actors that jump ship on a successful TV show, but I totally understand why he left M*A*S*H. Burns had absolutely no redeeming qualities (he wasn't even a good surgeon) and was always wrong. He basically just served as a strawman for Hawkeye & co. to knock down. And eventually he even lost Hot Lips. Linville said his character was one-dimensional and he was right. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 18, 2011, 12:50 am

Twilight - Movie Series
Soggy9000, do the people in Forks actually like the "Twihard" tourists, or are they annoyed by them? I'm musing about going up to Forks and interviewing the locals if it's the latter. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 17, 2011, 9:10 pm

Frugal Gourmet, The - TV Shows
The reason should really say "Sexual Harrassment of Teenage Boys" because his accusers were minors at the time of the alleged attacks. Also, the only reason he was never charged was because he settled out of court just before he was going to go to trial. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 17, 2011, 8:52 pm

South Park - TV Shows
That episode was not a favorite of mine, but Trey & Matt said they based the episode on normally mild-mannered friends of theirs that suddenly had Britney Bloodlust. The recent Charlie Sheen meltdown is similar to Britney's, and people were lapping it up. I saw a piece on the news about Charlie Sheen's disastrous live tour. The reporter interviewed some of the people coming out and they said they were disappointed in the show because they wanted to witness "a trainwreck" or "something catastrophic". -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 16, 2011, 2:49 am
