    Our Moderator Robert Fowkes passed away last Friday, Sept 30, 2011

    Glad the login still worked!! I decided to pop by today after a VERY long absence, and this is the first thing I saw. It's weird how you can remember certain names and certain people from places that were once a part of your early internet life! Robert Fowkes is one of those names for me. Rest...

    Black Dynamite

    Black Dynamite Following in the footsteps of films like "I'm Gonna Git You Sucka", "Black Dynamite" is a spoof on the "Blaxploitation" films of the 70's, but in my opinion, looks a lot more authentic and interesting. On a podcast I do, my co-host and I were discussing how we felt that the...

    Justice Dept. approves XM/Sirius Merger!

    Am I alone in thinking that Satellite Radio is already a dinosaur? There are other, more impressive and FREE ways to get this kind of entertainment now. Sure things were different when it first hit the scene, but other than the sports packages, or if you're some sort of die-hard Stern or O&A...

    Poor Rick Astley

    Actually, I'd love it if Astley just started "Rick Rolling" live events himself. Well....I might love it a couple times, then I would be way too cool for the room about it.

    Guns 'N' Roses Chinese Democracy Nov 23 & a free Dr Pepper

    I heard all of Chinese Democracy, and I have to admit, it's pretty solid. I really wanted it to be terrible, because I can't stand the way people still treat this band as if it's something amazing, when if you break it down, they released ONE great disc in the span of about a quarter of a...

    Metallica "Death Magnetic" out today (9/12)!!!

    Can I Play With Madness has quite a bit of success, if I recall correctly. I remember it actually making the MTV countdown. But that said, I agree with you. I was never a Priest fan, but they had much more success here than Maiden as far as mainstream goes.

    Metallica "Death Magnetic" out today (9/12)!!!

    Gotta go with the guys who like the disc. I think it's rock solid. Here's what I wrote on my blog back when it was released. "Yes, as a matter of fact I AM aware of what I said before. I was wrong. See how easy that is? You people should try it more often...but that's why I'm a better...

    Lost Boys the Tribe, sequal

    Now that others have seen it, here's my review that I wrote at my blog a few weeks ago which I previously mentioned here. You know what? I give up. Seriously, I'm not even going to expect people to try anymore...why should they? There is absolutely no incentive for Hollywood to put out...

    $30US Titles Are Killing HDM's Chances!

    Agree 100%. Most people I talk to simply don't see the difference in picture quality. YES, we all know it's there...but to the majority of people out there, it's just not noticeable enough to merit a player purchase, let alone spend double on software in some cases. This isn't like the jump...

    Lost Boys the Tribe, sequal

    Actually after reading your post, I just shot over there. Most are echoing my sentiments....but, I found that there's apparently also an alternate ending on the DVD to the one I saw...which quite frankly from what I read, wouldn't make anything any better.

    Lost Boys the Tribe, sequal

    Thanks, and yeah, it's really sad when it's glaringly obvious that little to no effort was put in to a film. And if Haim is really the monkey wrench that was thrown in to this production, I would have rather it been shelved than to have this presented as a "sequel" to one of my favorite 80's...

    Lost Boys the Tribe, sequal

    Don't know what the differences are, but the version I saw had some lesbian make-out scenes and graphic violence. This is NOT The Lost Boys of the 80's in many ways, and in my opinion an incredible disappointment. I have a full spoiler ridden review on my blog.

    A few thoughts about.....Shrek The Third (HD-DVD)

    I have to agree. While I'm sure it looks great, I haven't seen the HD version of this because I have no plans to spend more money on this than I did taking my kids to see it theatrically. How many times is the fairy tale joke supposed to work? It should have been left at the initial outing...

    Opie and Anthony Returning to Terrestrial Radio

    Oh I can answer, it's because it's what Bubba The Love Sponge has been saying.

    Opie and Anthony Returning to Terrestrial Radio

    Why, because that's the answer Howard gave you? Christ, how anyone can actually buy the spin he puts out there at this point, is beyond me. How is huge exposure in the terrestrial market...PLUS their satellite show...AND the return to DirectTV less than a week after being removed...a move of...

    Disappointed with XM 80's channel

    You're probably tuning in during "ToeJam", it's a specialty show. I haven't listened to 80's at night recently, but I remember back when I did, that show would come on.

    'Oprah & Friends' Exclusive Radio Channel to Launch On XM

    Yeah, I agree with what you've said, Chris. Although, I don't think XM paid too much for Oprah. Only needing to bring in 145,000 subs over 3 years to break even on Oprah seems like an easy task, and something that I expect to be exceeded this holiday shopping season alone. I just see the...

    'Oprah & Friends' Exclusive Radio Channel to Launch On XM

    Oprah WILL be on her network..she's doing a weekly show with Gail King. My cable company doesn't offer Oxygen, so I don't really know much about it, or what kind of programming it offers. But, this to me, is a different situation. For one, you aren't buying XM, and only getting Oprah..but...

    'Oprah & Friends' Exclusive Radio Channel to Launch On XM

    As I stated earlier....Oprah has proven time and time again, that she has STRONG power with her fans spending habits. If you watched that video, you'd see. She is telling them to go get XM, because for the first time, they'll be able to call in and talk to the experts that have become common...

    'Oprah & Friends' Exclusive Radio Channel to Launch On XM

    I don't know about that Ron, I remember reading awhile back that when Oprah does her "cool things she likes/gadget show" around the holidays, that all the items featured sell like crazy. The story in particular was about a Sharper Image corkscrew that was around $100 at the time. I think...

    'Oprah & Friends' Exclusive Radio Channel to Launch On XM

    This is HUGE for XM, and a much wiser use of money than the ridiculous Stern deal on Sirius. The way this breaks down, XM only needs to add 145,000 subs over 3 years, to break even on Oprah. Considering her power with her fanbase...I'd say that won't be much of a problem.:D And with a...

    What are people teaching their children!?

    I have to be honest here...I think the original poster's shock regarding his little boy wanting to act like...well... a little boy, is more horrifying than the child's desire to pretend he's shooting monsters with a gun. Our society seems to have been brainwashed by political correctness, to...

    XM lacking in sports coverage

    Where are you guys getting 60 mil for the NFL....I always read 220 million for five years?
