Well, now we know what line of work Mr. Horton got into after he sold the bike shop.

I was just talking about the Personics tapes with a friend a day or two ago. Couldn't remember the name, though. Wow.

Bwuh? That should have started "I found..." The "found" got lost! Ha! I'll shut up now.

I "12 Gifts of Christmas" here: http://www.lala.com/#song/360569488119517074 They have a weird policy: you can listen to the whole song once, then only a 30-second sample after that. Unless you clear your cookies.. heh.

I remember the rental box concept. Our family toyed with the idea, since we lived out in the sticks and the nearest video store was tiny and 15 miles away. No cable or DirectTV back then either. We didn't end up using the rent-by-mail service, due to the cost.
No one's gonna really be free until nerd persecution ends.

The cover of "Can't Help Falling in Love" by Lick the Tins (?!) at the end of SKoW is one of my favorites.

I thought the same thing, that it was Spinal-Tap-esque. Weird thing is that their drummer is named Robb Reiner - I thought it was a reference back to Tap.

Is that Gary Owens doing the voice-over? I had that Happy Meal. Probably the last time I ever actually ate anything from McDonald's.

A while back our waitress at a restaurant was taking the orders of a big family at an adjacent table. The mom, dad, kids and grandpa all gave their orders without incident. When they got to grandma, she ordered a glass of wine with dinner. The waitress playfully asked to see her ID, to "make sure she was old enough". Grandma lost it. Throwing down her napkin, she stormed out. Grandpa followed, but returned a few minutes later, alone. He shrugged, and the rest of the family went about their meal. They finished and took a take-out box for grandma. Our poor waitress was so rattled after that. She goofed our orders a bit, but I felt bad, so I gave her a pretty good tip anyway.

Maybe there was a reference to "Weird Science" somewhere? "I'm not going to stand here and listen to this.. baloney." "He won't, you know. He doesn't stand for baloney."

Diane Franklin in "Better Off Dead" was one of my serious 80's crushes, so I have an especially hard time with Last American Virgin.

I'd put "Must Love Dogs" on the list instead of "One Crazy Summer," personally. "2012" would be just another brain-dead disaster movie, but it loses even more points for hyping the whole Mayan calendar woo.

I just wasn't thinking fourth-dimensionally. /McFly

Wow, me = fail. I somehow managed to miss that in the movie *completely*. Good excuse to go see it again.

I loved the movie. But I decided that it takes place in a closely parallel dimension. Mostly to keep my annoying inner Trek Continuity Nerd voice quiet. "Alternate timeline" suggests negating everything that ever happened in "Trek prime". I Can't get onboard with that, so parallel dimension it is. I know, I know.

II, IV, VI, III, V, I I have to rank TFF higher than The Motionless Picture. I still kinda enjoy the cheese factor of #5. TMP, on the other hand? I recall that all the SFX shots were pretty awesome on the big screen in '79, but on home video, the whole thing just drags on and on. And did anyone notice how awful and sickly everyone looked? I think it was those uniforms.

I'm using an IBM M-Series keyboard that was manufactured in 1991. Both at work and at home.

Want to talk frustrating? I'm gonna be in Southern California this weekend and I won't be able to make it to the Festival of Books. Auggh!

I would have liked to see the two plots as full separate episodes - I enjoyed them both. The people offended by the Meg storyline need to grow a sense of humor. Oh, wait...

Here was a funny redub of the trailer from earlier today, via SlashFilm.
