  1. Old Soggy Crotch

    To be honest, I had wondered if that was just a rumored nickname. It was totally bleeped out on Merv. I wonder how people like Neil so long ago got the inside scoop on that nickname. By the way, to save others the time the big reveal here is at 4:32.
  2. Old Soggy Crotch

    This is the only time I've ever heard those words "soggy crotch" spoken in a TV interview. They were bleeped out on Merv, but not here. At least not i what has been posted. I wonder if this made it on the air without a bleep?
  3. This Concludes Zsa Zsa Watch

    Francesca Hilton: "My mother, Zsa Zsa Gabor, always wanted to be a princess, so she married a queen."
  4. I never took the time to watch Everybody Hates Chris, but I'm a fan of Chris Rock, and Wikipedia states this: Everybody Hates Chris received critical acclaim. The American Film Institute selected Everybody Hates Chris as one of the best 10 television series of 2007, stating that the show "provides a very real look at growing up in America – a challenge that demands a discussion of race and class often absent from television today."[6] Everybody Hates Chris was named one of the Best School Shows of All Time by AOL TV.[7] Common Sense Media's Marjorie Kase and Shanel Walker & Emily Kofoed gave the show 4 stars, and said it was "a prime example of how to take serious issues and approach them in a humorous yet thought-provoking way. The series is innovative, funny, and stereotype-defying – enjoyable for teens and their parents."
  5. I Love Lucy and The Lucy Show were both on MeTV Sunday afternoon. They aired "Lucy's Italian Movie" and "Lucy Buys a Sheep."
  6. Yes, the "Leave It to Beaver" clip show is included in the syndication package. It's the series finale. LITB is an incredibly well-written series, except for that clip show thanks to an illogical premise which has the family is looking through a photo album and reminiscing. Each photo is from a particular scene from the series. This is a really goofy set-up because it would mean that when those scenes took place, someone in the family was standing by with a camera. For example, one of the clips is from an episode where Beaver and Larry Mondello are at Larry Mondello's house and sneak into Larry's sister's bedroom. The picture in the photo album is of Beaver and Larry in his sister's bedroom. They were alone in the bedroom, so who was supposed to have taken that picture? Makes no sense. Interesting. I always preferred the HOME LIFE to the office scenes. I've never enjoyed that Sally/Buddy/Mel banter in the office. I always found it annoying and unfunny. But Dick and Mary I thought had amazing on-screen chemistry together. And Mary's comedic talent shone through brightly from almost the very beginning.
  7. My neighborhood business community has a Facebook page. This showed up on their page the other day: http://www.imagebam.com/image/dbb963695034223
  8. Rose Marie weighs in on Harvey Weinstein

    Count me as another who never found Bob Hope funny. His success and long career have always been a complete mystery to me. I've tried to watch some of his old movies from during his heyday, but I find them painfully boring. His delivery leaves me cold. And his TV specials that were on when I was growing up were consistently awful -- corny and unfunny. He was supposedly Johnny Carson's least favorite guest. Carson had hundreds of guests on his show, so that's saying something! As for his reputation, this may have been mentioned before, but a guy who researched him and wrote a biography of him a few years ago confirmed that Hope had been married to another woman prior to marrying Delores (something Hope had denied). And not only that, Hope was still married to that first wife during a period of time when he claimed he was already married to Delores. And this biographer was unable to find any evidence Hope was ever actually married to Delores! Very bizarre.
  9. Jim Nabors dies at 87

    Wow, great analysis! Gomer Pyle USMC was so incredibly popular back in the day, it surprises me it hasn't lived on the way TAGS has. I caught a few reruns a couple years ago and still found it to be a fun show. I don't really remember it from its original airings, but it was very heavily rerun during the '70s when I was growing up. I was still seeing regular reruns in the early '80s when I was in college. After that it seemed to fade away.
  10. Jim Nabors dies at 87

    And there goes another big chunk of my childhood. I probably saw every episode of Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C. multiple times when I was a kid. And it was a delight to me every time he appeared on The Andy Griffith Show. He seemed like such a kind man. He had a long life, but I wish he could have stuck around longer. I think he was close to Carol Burnett. You all probably know that he was her special guest star every year for the season premiere of The Carol Burnett Show. She called him her good luck charm.


    And now "Keith" joins Tracy and Mr. Kincaid in the Great Hereafter. Another piece of my childhood is gone. Friday nights when I was a kid meant The Brady Bunch at 8:00, followed by The Partridge Family at 8:30, and later in the evening The Odd Couple and Love, American Style. But The Partridge Family was my favorite show, especially during the year when was in third grade. I used to call the local radio station on their request line and ask them to "play anything by the Partridge Family." And they would. (It was a small town.) The next year for Christmas, "Santa" gave me a Brady Bunch album ("Meet the Brady Bunch"), and my sister got a Partridge Family album ("The Partridge Family -- at Home with their Greatest Hits"). I was so envious. I was the one who was the big Partridge Family fan, not her. So why was I stuck with this Brady Bunch album? And why did she get the Partridge Family album, which she wasn't even playing? And she was actually partial to The Brady Bunch anyway. This was so backwards. How could my parents -- er, Santa -- get it so wrong? Fortunately, my sister agreed to trade albums with me. I then proceeded to wear that "Partridge Family" album out. As an adult, I can no longer bear to sit through a single episode of The Partridge Family. But that doesn't diminish what the show meant to me as an eight and nine year old. And poor David. While it seems that his fans mostly did move on from that show, they never allowed him to do the same. Add to that the fact that as a young man he dreamed of becoming a rock star, not a bubblegum pop singer. I think that was a big part of some of the struggles he's had in recent years, and which I don't doubt contributed to his decline and death. I hope he at least realized the happiness he brought to a lot of youngsters way back when, and the memories we have carried forward. One thing for me that has not changed since I was a kid is my favorite song from that old album remains my favorite Partridge Family song still: "It's One of Those Nights." Not that I spend much time listening to Partridge Family music, but hey, it has its place! Their music may seem very corny to younger generations (as it did even in its day), but it evokes happy childhood memories for some of us older folks. By the way, the guy sitting in the audience in this video is Bruce Kimmel, who went on to have (and still has) a very successful career as music producer, theater director and author. He has a blog where he has posted a nice tribute of his recollections of David Cassidy. http://www.haineshisway.com/2017/11/david-cassidy/
  13. Lucy to be Inducted into the California Hall of Fame

    Great news, but this hall of fame has been in existence since 2006. Looking at some of the names on the complete list of inductees, this honor seems a bit overdue. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/California_Hall_of_Fame
