    Trump's Biggest Whoppers

    Not really. I like Dickens, Blake, Sterne, Hume, Ayer, James Mason, the Beatles, P.J. Harvey, New Order, the IRA, et al.

    Trump's Biggest Whoppers

    Being anti-British was not what got Mel into trouble though.

    Strzok hearings

    Yeah, I wouldn't want to be there when that hits the fan. Strzok was certainly right in his belief that Trump would be a disaster.

    Strzok hearings

    Yeah, especially after their display of reasonableness and subtly at the hearing. Strzok kept telling them he could not answer questions about an on going investigation but they never seemed to understand that simple idea.
  5. Wayne bashing is something of a tradition on this forum and it pops up a few times a year when Wayne becomes a subject of a thread. I don't think age had much to do with it, as stars older than Wayne served. The details are on some places on the internet. The bottom line was that Wayne didn't go and didn't try very hard to go. His hypocrisy is not due to his politics but his gung ho attitude that he quickly abandoned when he himself might be involved.

    Trump's Biggest Whoppers

    As much as I dislike Donny, I did get a laugh out of him dissing, likely unintentionally, the old bag. Probably nothing more than his usual egotism. I would rather he did walk behind her and then give the old parasite a big kick in the rear, but you can't always get what you want.

    Trump's Biggest Whoppers

    I'd say one reality and one fantasy.

    Strzok hearings

    That's not perjury, it is simply his opinion, and there is no evidence at all that any of his official actions were influenced by his dislike of Trump. I don't recall him saying that his tests were incriminating, only that they had the appearance of bias. No harm, no foul. If you had the private text messages of all those House members, there would likely be ones that were just as embarrassing as Strzok's.

    Strzok hearings

    Yes, unfortunately, I'm sure we have not heard the last of Gowdy. He is basically a bully who tries to overwhelm the person he is addressing with endless questions and endless interruptions when the person tries to answer. You can tell that on occasion he was getting frustrated by Strzok. I got a kick out of Nadler giving Goodlatte a hard time on the whole process of the hearing. It certainly was more interesting than your typical hearing.

    Rock and Roll Extravaganzas

    Yes, Tap is funnier if one is familiar with some rock history. Just for sheer quantity of laughs it is one of my favorite comedies. But perhaps all joking aside, we should pay attention to the message to listen to the flower people. Very heavy that. I remember the band that ran across the HOTH album. Being a bit of a control freak, I would at first take it off and put it back on after each listening. Of course it started to wear out, so I then just left it separate from the album. For a brief time I was a DJ at an "underground" small wattage radio station, which technically was illegal. They were eventually taken off the air by the FCC.
  11. At least he knew his limitations and was smart enough to hew to them. I really don't mind Wayne as an actor. You get what you pay for. I disdain Wayne as a yellow-bellied chicken hawk hypocrite.

    Too late, Kate. The sun long ago set on your moth-eaten "empire." And now it's payback time for all those past crimes. And England's dreaming.

    Strzok hearings

    What perjury?

    Yep, he's retiring. Good riddance.

    Rock and Roll Extravaganzas

    And as I recall, they then stylized themselves as the New Originals. Perhaps around the time of Give Me Some Money. You always read about real bands having to change their names because there was already a band with that name. Zeppelin's only top ten hit in the U.S. was Whole Lotta Love. There was the album version which ran about five and a half minutes and a shorter version which ran two minutes less, with the middle distorto part left out. From what I can decipher the U.S. single was the full version. The song also incorporated parts of another song and Zep settled a suit in 1985. Ramble on.
