In best Roy Clark vocals: Thank God and Greyhound (of Hell), he's gone.

Cam!!  Good to see you!!

All is well in the world again.

At the end of the day though, I am just tired to death of finding blame rather than solutions.

Total agreement here.
Just imagine what it would be like to fix the problem BEFORE finding fault or blame.

I think that sounds like a song I heard a long time ago....   8)

Now why does that sound familiar?    ;)

Never used it. I use that little wheel on the mouse if I need to. Yeah, I'm still on a desktop.

I vote...wait, what? I forgot what we were voting for.   :P

  How the opening credits of The Fall Guy revealed the ending of Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry.


Like the av from Dragnet.   :)   Barnaby West(Wagon Train).... I thought he died, but he's a professor now. Wow.

solar powered flashlights that only work when there is light.

Ha Ha! Yeah, solar power. Only works when the sun is shining on it.... :P

I've got a couple of them.

Rehabilitated... I'm not sure I know what that word means...  To me it's just a made-up bullshit word so young fellahs like yourself can put on a suit and have a job.  Why don't you ask Jackstar what you really want to know.  Is he sorry for those terrible things he did?

And they call you "Red" because you're Irish?    :P

Ooops, nope. It was Lust in the Dust.

What if I told you there is a movie called "Rustlers Rhapsody" with this plot that is almost as funny as "Blazing Saddles"

It's a movie that almost demands you are in an altered state and want happy tears to fall out of your face.

Is this the one with Lainie Kazan and Divine?

Not technically a joke but this is how a creative guy coped with his divorce. If you're a fan of Bull Terriers this should give you a good laugh.  ;D

Hahahahahahaha!  Love it!

The GB reboot could be much worse: It could include Jeremy Renner/Hawkeye with his bow and arrows.

That's when you know you've hit skid row bedrock.

If the new GB has Murray on his deathbed, passing the torch, that would be a nice touch.

Bill does make a cameo appearance in it, right?  Right?  He agreed to, right?

This better not be like The Liberace Incident where I'm the last forum member to know the truth.

Liberace Incident??  What??   ;) ;)

It's so good to see you Treading! A few nights ago I was looking at old poppets on the Marie Laveau Voodoo Museum site. We're planning a trip to New Orleans in the near future. Yeah, the one in TOT was just terrifying. Besides the oven fiasco ... His sharp teeth and gold chain.

I have a feeling there was yet another doll related horror film during the 70s.

Glad you're back, Chine!  :)  [size=78%]  [/size]I'm thinking the same about the other doll film.  I can't remember it either.  But I know it's out there.
Oooooooo, creepy.   :P


Magic is a case where I thought the film was superior to the book.

All these years later, and I can still recite the poster's tag line without looking it up! The movie ad at the time had the dummy saying it:

Hocus Pocus
I sit on his knee
Presto Change-o
Now he is me
Abracadabra we take her to bed
Magic is fun
We're dead.........

Aaaaakkkkkk!! Possessed dolls freak me OUT!
My childhood nightmares were filled with visions of Howdy Doody, and his creepy friend Cowboy Bob. Eeeewwww.
(Little bit for the Nice Little Facts thread:  The first Clarabell was played by Bob Keeshan who went on to become Captain Kangaroo.)

And even though I was "all grown up" in 1975 when Trilogy of Terror was released I had nightmares about that little doll, too....

Oddly, I enjoyed Bob on Soap.  Maybe because he was just as dysfunctional as everyone else.  Too busy laughing to be scared.      :o

West Side Story, again. 

"From your first cigarette to your last dyin' day!"

Ohhh, Nardo.... :-*

Spending time with my girlfriend mainly has been where I have been at :) Nice to be missed though, and working on book 2. I probably won't be in chat tonight as I am going to be "busy". Also I recommend any of you looking for a woman that you look for one that used to be a stripper :o  Good times my friends!

Not to be critical, but I think the perfect partner would be a massage therapist.... 8)

Hahahahahaha.  Good to know things are working out well for you, pony.  Congrats!   :)

I've worn a kit. In Scotland. One evening only. There's a very good reason it's worn au natural. A mile of pleated wool. It was like having the lower half of my body in an oven.
Would that be a convection oven, and again I say, pics or it didn't happen.  ;)

Hahahaha. I'm with UC on this one, Yorkie!!  :P

  These fuckin' Minion things are triggering the harrowing PTSD I suffered from 1999-2004 from having to watch those goddamn, motherfucking, infernal scumfuck Rugrats.  >:(

Dammit, Eddie, I can hear the opening bars of the  "Rugrats" theme in my head now. If "Gullah Gullah Island" gets in my head, I may give myself a DIY lobotomy.  :P

Akkkk, well, there goes MY holiday weekend!!!! I'm done with the BOTH of YA'!!!    ::) :o   Hahahahahaha.

Here's one back atcha':  That little dinosaur bitch that SCREAMS through five or six installments of something to do with Time and Land.
NO!! Don't tell the name of that particular franchise....I've remembered too much already!   ;)
Anytime my son did something "untoward" I blamed it on that movie and its sequels.  I think it actually killed some of my brain cells(without the enjoyment of doing it on my own with some alcohol).

 ;D  Have a nice day!  ;D

Ha I missed that one.  Yeah it started out cool, kind of reminded me a bit of Rockford Files, in that he tried to survive more on his wits rather than over-the-top confrontations, but in later seasons this sort of switched around.  Still a pretty clever show at times, if you can tolerate a little MacGyver streak in there.

I liked the first couple of seasons also.  It started to fall apart for me when they added the macho sidekick. I found him, um, unwelcome. I loved the back and forth between Bruce Campbell and Sharon Gless.

I also enjoyed Mr Robot.  I'm looking forward to more of that.

Only pansy commies think waffles are better.

Yeah, I'm with you on this one.  I've never tasted a waffle that's anywhere near as good as a light, fluffy pancake.   :)

Why would anyone eat waffles when pancakes are available?

Because they hold together much better in those nifty little cookers that sit on the counter.  What are they called??....Oh yeah, TOASTERS.

I too am a relocated Yinzer.  (In Virginia) 
Aside from 'worshing' your dishes do you also 'redd up' before company comes over?  ;)

OMG, yes.  My whole family still says that. I don't even think of that as something weird to say.  But now that I think of it, people do look at us funny when we eat out and talk and laugh loudly. I thought we were just being noisy.  hahahaha
Funny story.--My daughter, who was brought up in Cent PA, went to Pitt and never moved back here again.
I still make chipped ham Bar-B-Q.(A Sloppy Joe is NOT Bar-B-Q!)  To the deli man: "As thin as you can slice it, then slice it thinner."
And potato salad that ISN'T swimming in some runny, saucey stuff.     ;D

I believe Back in Black is an ironic reference to another Aussie band. Here is an amazing, irony-free performance:

Avi, Avi, Avi....How mournful and moving. So beautiful it hurts.
Wow, just wow.

And just where the HELL was Ghost???  What's the use of having a direwolf if....ah, never mind.
Maybe Jon will warg into him and trot around thinking morose, frowny, man/wolf thoughts.

Northern Kentucky, Southern Ohio. My cousins would frequently inquire as to when we might visit by saying, "when y'uns comin' up?"


Yep. I still use it. I'm from Pittsburgh, now I live in Central PA.  I lost the "pop" and say soda, because no one around here knew what I meant.
"Y'uns OK?"  I also "worsh" my dishes.   :P
