    Wasn't it Sheryl Crow who was advocating this way back some time?

    Videos played during VH1's first hour on air

    I have fond memories of Night Flight on the USA network. It was more than music videos and hard to describe.

    The Official HTF Cat Thread

    One of my cats with urinary issues wouldn't touch the Hill's Science sample my vet gave me. Purina ProPlan turned out to be acceptable to her, but it sure is expensive.

    Vital sociological issue: How do you mount your toilet paper...to dispense from top or bottom?

    I take it to show that the need was so dire that they used up the mounted roll and just grabbed a new one to continue with, not taking the time to mount it. Perhaps even being pessimistic that the new roll will be enough.

    What annoys you?

    I suspect that these "useless" messages may be a troubleshooting aid, so a sign with no message would be easily ID'd as a unit in need of maintenance.

    Mad Magazine cease publishing new issues after fall 2019

    I too am glad I got the MAD CD-ROM set. Not long ago my sister needed the rules for 43-man squamish and I was able to locate and print them from the CD. I don't know how the game turned out.

    Mad Magazine cease publishing new issues after fall 2019

    I bought the complete set of The Fugitive solely on the basis on the Mad parody of it, which I have always remembered. I assume I saw the show some in its original run although I don't recall it. My favorite part of the parody was a frame with a water truck in the background labeled "Making...

    How to edit a post?

    This is why I delete most of my posts before actually submitting them. "Post in haste, repent at leisure." I think Abraham Lincoln said that.

    Permanent Record (1988)

    I recall watching this on cable way back because of Pamela Gidley's appearance in it, as well as in The Blue Iguana. I had met her during her modeling days so I wanted to see how she would do in acting. Just now looking this up, I found that she passed away in April of last year. Way too young.

    What annoys you?

    So this thread's latest post has dropped, giving me the opportunity to be annoyed at the use of "dropped" as a synonym for "released" in regards to songs, books, movies, etc.. There are enough unpleasant things that drop that this sounds like something bad. (Although maybe it is sometimes!)

    What annoys you?

    So I was reading this thread when I remembered how annoying it is for people to start a message with "So." It always feels like they have left out the beginning of their story.

    Colonoscopy time!

    Virtual colonoscopies were mentioned earlier in this thread. https://www.niddk.nih.gov/health-information/diagnostic-tests/virtual-colonoscopy It is like an X-ray or CT scan, so it's non-invasive. You still have to the cleansing bit and also drink a "contrast medium" the night before. It's...

    Colonoscopy time!

    I had one ten years ago, shortly after Katie Couric had had one on TV where she stayed awake and talked through it. I asked my doctor if he could leave me conscious through my procedure. He said he could if I wanted, but then told me how one of the other doctors in his practice asked for the...

    Things You’ve Seen in Movies or TV But will Never See in Life

    Related to this is when people go to see a singer performing, the singer just finishes a song, hands off their instrument (if any) to a nameless bandmate and then sits down to talk with the visitors, leaving the poor band to fend for themselves. Having been in "poor bands," this offends me...
