Winner!!!

OK, CCJoe, I'll give you credit for a win on my trivia. The character in question was Bart and I thought the line to be of some irony for our lives.
As for TV, it is pretty sad, for sure. Thank God for the Simpsons, Family Guy, South Park and Charlie Brown. Wait a minute, I think I see a connection here, hummmm...
Also, don't forget to watch The Daily Show and Colbert Report (although they're all repeats this week). Jon Stewart has had several world leaders (both current and past) on the show recently, not the least of which was the President of Bolivia, a former tenant farmer that reformed several major elements of government in six months, including forcing the major natural gas company to re-negotiate a contract that was very unfair to the people of Bolivia while giving what amounted to bribes to top government officials. Not included in that interview (unfortunately) was the fact that The Bush administration tried to paint the newly elected leader (at the time) as a terrorist sponsor. Perhaps reform should travel north? Both are great shows, not to be missed.

truth

this is so frigging true, it is sad.

I got DVDs for Hawaii 5 -0, Kojack, Columbo, The Jeffersons, Sanford and Son, Good Times, and so on... etc etc etc Barney Miller, too; just to get me by...

what is being produced in La La land these days is a fucking travesty.

who is???

fuck, I forgot this question was in the TV thread, and I was racking my brain trying to think of the movie which I think was called Carney...

I forgot the character's name, but someone in Natural Born Killers?

nope, on a Simpsons episode for sure... a play with the Stone movie line in Natural Born Killers; which was probably the best film he directed...

I forgot who said it though on the Simpsons.

one of my old high school buds ended up being a staff writer on the Simpsons for a while, but he was not a deadhead; so no cool 'hidden' references in any of the stuff he wrote.

Thanks for the laughs, CCJoe. I always enjoy your posts.

Charo

Well for once, GRTUD was correct. I was toying with my time resonator (sorry CC Joe about the posts getting all f'd up) and due to this interesting topic, I decided to go back to the 70's and did some of my own "research" on Charo. I went back to the late part of 1977 (my favorite year) when she and her very old man, Cugat were on the outs. She was vunerable and I scooped her up one night after her show at The Flamingo. There was a small crowd that night and I sent moon beams to her. We had drinks and strolled the strip until the wee hours. She was looking for someone to take her seriously and I found her guitar chops to be quite good - no kidding. She couldn't speak a lick of English though and I taught her more in a few hours than she had ever learned. That crap about Buddy Hacket is total bullshit! In the throws of love making, I also inspired the idea for an album she would put out years later, "Guitar Passion". She could play the guitar and "they're" definitely real, for sure. Probably why she attained fame, in the first place without doing Playboy or Hef, for that matter. Also she was quite a handful in the sack. I had to read books on the side just to keep up with her and I was only there a couple weeks, tops! I offered to take GRTUD with me or send him alone but NOOOO, he had to take his precious wife to the Phil & Friends show. What a wuss...although it did sound like I may have been the one to "miss out". Guess I'll have to rev up the time machine, one more time.
