...and there's nothing on? Say it ain't so!
...does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop? The world may never know! Thanks for the laughs, CCJoe. I always enjoy your posts. "All energy flows according to the whims of the Great Magnet. What a fool I was to defy him."
how long does it take to get to the center of a tootsie pop? I will get my old lady on that one right away... the VDO will be for sale on e-bay quite soon. ( -:

"We're natural-born Carnies, dad. If we only weren't tied down with a family." The Dude Abides!
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. ) -;
When Law and Order SVU or Criminal Intent or The Dallas Cowboys are not on the tube I'll break out the DVD's. Unless the Steelhead are runnin, that case I be fishin.
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.
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. The Dude Abides!
Which TV cop of the 70's said: "You can't corrupt it. And you know why? Because to corrupt it, you've got to show how corrupt you really are." a) Baretta b) Columbo c) Kojak d) Steve McGarret e) Barney Miller f) Hutch g) Starsky
Who was the toughest TV cop of the 70s?? and why?? a) Baretta b) Columbo c) Kojak d) Steve McGarret e) Barney Miller f) Hutch g) Starsky h) __________________________
a) Baretta The Dude Abides!
Baretta - 'cause thirty years later he "offs" his "wife" and uses the alibi, "I couldn't have killed the woman, I was looking for the gun I left at the restaurant!" Now that statement took balls and a total lack of intelligence which could only result in the toughest 70's TV cop. The Dude Abides!
So I'm looking through the latest Guitar Player and they have a list of the top 40 underrated guitarists and among them is David Lindley, Kim Simmons from Savoy Brown, Rick Derringer, Robie Krieger from the Doors, Rory Gallagher, Andy Powell and Ted Turner from Wishbone Ash and Charo! No kidding. If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is, infinite. Wiliam Blake
i say 1st:columbo;thats the kind a stuff he would say.2barreta,cause he was pretty slick.and now moing along to Hal,thats pretty cool,you mentioned savoy brown i found a old cassette that my late ol'man had of savoy no tape in it ive looked for a long time in variouse stores for it havent found it yet.charo pretty cool.thanks for sharing that. peace
did you know that "Baretta" in Swahili means 'stupid dumb ass motherfucker' ?? well, in ONE of the dialects it does! the question was who was the TOUGHEST cop not who was the dumbest!! Who was the toughest? Who was the toughest TV cop of the 70s?? and why?? a) Baretta b) Columbo c) Kojak d) Steve McGarret e) Barney Miller f) Hutch g) Starsky h) __________________________ in my book, Baretta was too short to be really tough. Columbo, while intelligent and pretty much of a hard ass when it came to law breakers, never bitch slapped any perps. McGarret was a bit too 'official' and by the book, though he did threaten and knock around a few suspects in season one. Barney Miller -- no elaboration necessary. How did this guy make Captain anyways? Oh, I know, the only one else up for the job was Fish. (a GREAT comedy TV show, though) Starsky and Hutch were both borderline fags (not that there is anything wrong with that) how many shows did a bomb go off and they were thrown into each other's arms?? sheesh. so, that leaves Kojak -- the toughest bad ass cop of the 70's in a VERY tough neighborhood. The 9th Precint on the lower east side of MaDhattan. He either threatened, violated someone's civil rights,or bitch slapped a perp in almost every episode. Further, he wore a cool hat and his suits were top notch. especially the linings. PLUS he got laid more than all of those other cops combined. Who love's you baby?
Which 70s cop show had the best theme song?? a) Baretta b) Columbo c) Kojak d) Hawaii 5-0 e) Barney Miller f) Husky and Starch g) ___________________ who even remembers Husky and Starch's theme song? fuckin Zebra - 3. those guys were wankers. Columbo, ok... but certainly not that memorable, any more than Kojak's theme was memorable... a tough choice between Baretta and Hawaii 5-0... but for a cop show, I gotta go with Baretta's theme. sung here by Mr. Entertainment!
damn developers sure fucked up Waikiki... how things have changed! well, they fucked it up more, and they are still fucking it up even as we speak. my buddy actually lived IN the Ilikai for a year or 2, the building McGarret is on top of... well, anyway, this is a pretty cool song, too!
and the Barney Miller theme was ALSO pretty cool!
I have to go with Barney Miller, It has a Jam kinda of feel to it.
I always liked the Hawaii 5-0 theme song and opening scenes. Made me want to jump up, grab the board, and head for the beach (or at least fire a fatty and imagine the beach). Too bad Telly is still not around. He, of all people, could probably answer how many licks it takes to get to the center of a tootsie pop. Who loves you, baby!
i like that theme more barneys them was cool too.70s grovin feel to it.yes and i bet telly probly could answer that question."he is oraly fixated".
Why is the best 70's detective show, The Rockford Files, not being included? Ok, so Jim Rockford was a PI and not a cop, still pretty much a cop show. Great theme song, love the guitar riff. And he could take a punch, too!
Ralph Kramden voice... hammuna hammuna hammuna... yeah, I should have included Jim Rockford... ) -; sorry Jimbo! but Kojak would still kick his ass; but Rockford certainly ranks above Steve McGarrett! his name is a tough guy name, after all. I am unable to post the beggining song directly, but you can cut and paste this link. http://youtube.com/watch?v=V5pYtG_jo3o peace
hands down the best line of a cop show theme ever. i almost remember all of it- keep your eye on the sparrow, when the going gets narrow. i used to love both starsky and hutch and baretta when i was a kid. most of the chicks dug david soul-not me-no, no, no, i was a paul michael glaser kinda gal!!! huggy bear (lol) peace all nothing left to do but smile, smile, smile
OK, who else is watching this show?? i LOVE it. charlie crews kicks major ass. anyone else????? nothing left to do but smile, smile, smile
i almost forgot about him.my grandfather use to watch that show so when i was ther visiting which was alot i used to watch it with him.pi's kinda like cops "they have to build a case too.it was a cool show..peace
Huggy Bear was THE man! "Hey Hutch, we have no leads in this case, we have no idea what to do, we don't have any clues at all... hey, let's go ask that pimp who did it"
i was flippin through channels last night and long and be hold i come across this doc.it was intressting. i still say he ate to much dose.after all this time it still baffels me."im still that way with clockwork orange".strange .makes me feel like i ate some bad shit!!la la land.however very talented and intresting in a obscuer way.
I don't watch too much TV, but last Friday I happend to catch Jimi at Woodstock on GPTV! My two cents on theme songs (ha ha) is about the one from MASH. Great show and some haunting music.
Do not attempt to adjust your monitor, we are in control. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to my underground lair.
when i got home last night flippin though the flippin channeles and vh-1 was playing the wall.still way cool even while not under the influence of ilicite stuff.the grapics and animation still blow me away.heavy story too...
I agree, heatha! Those guys could see into the future, if you ask me. I saw the film at the theater when it was released and was blown away yet couldn't possibly understand all the significance. I was a bit overwhelmed and freaked out in fact when I first experienced the movie and it took years of life to understand why. Thank God I had The Grateful Dead and Hunter to balance the "heavy" implications of psychedelics and their ultimate meaning in my life. Well I must get back to my preoccupation with global domination. Ciao! Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to my underground lair.
there is a great TV show in England called 'The Real Hustle' if you go on youtube.com and search for 'The Real Hustle' you will get plenty of hits, lots of confidence games, grifts, scams, and other interesting shit. one example, but there are PLENTY of them. watch and learn. peace.
while this is one of the best shows of all time, it is almost too trippy to see that dude running for president. anyway, I would rather see Lenny Briscoe get to be President. peace.
especially since Lenny Briscoe is, like, dead. I like Fred Thompson a lot, but let's just say we don't agree on the issues and I wish him a speedy return to Law & Order.
yeah, that was sad when he passed. I met him once after I saw him appear in 'Chicago' the Broadway musical. Really nice guy, very down to earth and totally unpretentious. still, a dead Jerry Orbach WOULD still make a better Prez than the load of turd politicos out there these daze. peace.
I liked Jon Stewart's interview with Philip Zimbardo better but Stephen's was funnier. I love that his name has "Bardo" in it. Too funny and ironic! "All energy flows according to the whims of the Great Magnet. What a fool I was to defy him."
Did anyone catch The Roots last night on Colbert? Pretty darn good, imo. I love me some Roots, though. Obama's wife also appeared and was very funny. "Since you've all been such good boys and girls, I would like to take everybody in this entire audience out for milk and cookies. There are buses outside. Everybody follow me."
This week's "King of the Hill" featured a portable version of Studio 54. Couldn't help but think of Mr. Pid's story, when I heard this line.Peggy Hill - "Hank, take comfort in knowing that every thread of your leisure suit was made by DuPont." (paraphrased)
One of my co-workers was ranting about this show-so watched it once, and now am quite into it. Think the guy playing Dexter is just a marvelous actor-his sociopath is really good-BUT the sister drives me nuts! A friend also gave me a series on dvd called Wonderfalls-where inanimate objects tell this young woman to do things. Is kinda goofy and cute.********************************** Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone, you will still exist, but you have ceased to live. Samuel Clemens
I LOVE house. one of the greatest shows of all time without question. love it. hugh laurie is one of the best actors of all time.Peace, The Kid
I just sorta stumbled on House lately and I really like it.
Kutner is a great actor too. his comedic roots add a bit of humor, but he doesnt over do it.my other fav show is law and order svu Peace, The Kid
... and miami ink also.Peace, The Kid
Like it too! Is cool how they use those complex medical terms as if we all know what they mean. Agree w/Kid that Hugh Laurie is a good actor-one of the best??? well the jury is still out :-) Have you ever seen him in Jeeves and Wooster? THAT just cracks me up!********************************** Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone, you will still exist, but you have ceased to live. Samuel Clemens
a big favourite in Badgerland, except if we watch too many episodes in a short period the hypochondria can set in. Oh no, I've got an itch..it must be grandfunkrailroadosis! You are right Deadheadkid and TL, Hugh Laurie is brilliant, ever since his early work with Stephen Fry in their comedy show and in Jeeves and Wooster. His presence on the screen does however generate a worrying twinkle in the eye of Mrs Badger.
