[Current Mood |accomplished]

Sorry for leaving the Blog O' Nothing so vacant - not like there's anyone reading this yet anyway.

Updates to
Added a Body Language celebrity guide
Added Cosby Show S1, S2, plus Saturday Night Live S1, and Jeopardy DVD Reviews.
I don't know how much more content I'll be able to get up - I go to Lexington to start classes at UK in about a week in a half (fun times), but we'll see.

Other things [Jan. 9th, 2007|11:20 am]
[Current Mood |accomplished]

Since I want to try to stuff this thing with content, I thought I'd post my latest additions to the DVD conversion/cataloging project.

New stuff for 01/09/07

Disc 77:
1)Millionaire (Meredith Viera) (2007)
2)Jeopardy (Alex Trebek) (2007)
3)Wheel of Fortune (Pat Sajak) (2007)
4)Jeopardy (Alex Trebek) (2007)
5)Wheel of Fortune (Pat Sajak) (2007)

Discs 78-79
Odd Couple. First 28 Episodes of the Show, from a mix of Original Broadcast and Syndication rerun.

Discs 80-83
Empty Nest. 13 Episodes Total. 3 from Season 3, 10 from Season 4. From WGN circa late 1990s

Disc 83:
1)Family Feud (Ray Combs-CBS) (1989)
2)$100,000 Pyramid (Dick Clark) [1987]
3)Password Plus (Allen Ludden) (1979)
4)Super Password (Bert Convy) (1984)
5)Family Feud (Ray Combs-Syndicated) (1988)
6)$100,000 Pyramid (Dick Clark) (1988)
This may benefit no one but me, but it benefits me. And with Disc 83 having the last conversions of Old Tape 36, it means I've now gone over every tape at least once in the last 3 years for cataloging purposes. Which should at least make the rest of this go a TINY bit faster, since all I have to do is watch for stuff I missed, and otherwise re-copy the listing (changing the number).

And Notre Dame blows it [Jan. 4th, 2007|10:02 am]
[Current Mood |disappointeddisappointed]

Is there any other squad less effective in the postseason in college football? And this is coming from someone who loves the Fighting Irish. But this playoff choking streak is getting ridiculous. And I honestly wonder if last night might not cost Brady Quinn the #1 draft pick, which prior to last night he seemed to be on the fast track to getting. And obviously ESPN's web editors had their "clever" little "puns" worked out in advance, calling the loss a "sugar low" for Notre Dame, and - and this is the best one - referring to reports for each team's mood post-game as Sweet (LSU) & Low (ND) - referring to one of the leading artificial sweeteners out there.

And I even missed Knights of Prosperity and In Case of Emergency to watch this flippin game in spite of the site's PR breakfast bonanza over the shows, particularly the former, all week. So far I'm 2-2 in the Bowls, with only the national title game left. The Cards didn't let me down, and I may have been the only person in the world gutsy enough to think Boise State WOULD win. Then both Michigan and especially the Fighting Irish blew it. Wonderful.

As for the title game - or joke thereof - I (and I can't believe I'm saying this) would rather see Ohio State win. And given my dislike of Ohio State, that should indicate how much more I dislike Florida.

That was fast. [Jan. 4th, 2007|03:18 am]
Well, I decided to shill for it after all.

There's no way I'm paying for a service, in advance, if I'm not going to use it long-term. If I decide I like this, I may ante up later. That, in addition to other conveiniences, would allow me to make this thing look a LOT prettier.

EDIT: I actually *LIKE* this design. My only gripe is the ads. They'll go away, but only if I stay, at which point I'd pony up for paid. If you want the ads to go away in the meantime, I might suggest Firefox with accompanying Adblock extension.

Well, thought I'd give this a shot. I'll try this out for a couple weeks, and go from there. My head's such a tangled mess of garbage I'm not so sure the EPA wants the public exposed to levels of toxins this high, but oh well.
