  • What do you know of the so-called Black Irish, said to have descended from Spanish sailors after the sinking of their naval armada in 1588?
    Hi!:) Mine, was good thanks! I learned how to cook rice in the microwave as opposed to the stove!

    I think they should proceed with haste on the Ghostbusters reunion as the major players are starting to age appreciably and they could all use the career boost!
    I understand but I wanted to put you through the intellectual exercise of explaining a basic premise. I think it's good to examine core assumptions from time to time plus it creates conversation!
    Looks Irish? Describe the Irish look please.

    What, if anything, did he say about the Ghostbusters reunion?
    Hey, thanks for the link.:) That video is pretty bare bones!:bugeyed:D The song did have a Jacksons vibe.:yes:

    I like Phil Collins voice. One of these days I'll try to get more acquainted with his music.

    P.S. Do you think Phil looks like Bill Murray?:thinking:
    You're perfectly entitled to feel surprised!:yes:

    What, if any, difference should there be for mourning strangers?:thinking: This is getting philosophical!:D
    The soap opera I watched for about a year and a half was Days of Our Lives in the late 90s. I stopped when they wrote out my favorite characters and/or replaced the actors that originally portrayed them.
    No, I was being completely serious.

    Perhaps, because you were raised with religious values, which are currently being replaced with secular ones, you didn't have that tough a time with media influence. It's certainly effective in brainwashing the young and impressionable, especially those without any traditional foundation.
    Just as there's a niche of female action film fans, there's also a niche of male soap opera fans but the fan base of the latter is predominantly female!

    My exposure to Diana Ross is through Michael Jackson. I don't own any of her albums yet although I appreciate the music of hers I have come across.:)
    Are you sure? Hasn't it helped shape your values, allegiances and prejudices, and defined cultural standards of fashion and beauty? Hasn't the news it did and didn't report defined what's supposed to be important and what's not? Haven't character archetypes and plot conventions constructed the morality tales and parables the media masters and advertisers want you to absorb?
    Are you saying they're no longer that strict or that people have moved on to other forms of media?

    People grieve in different ways; he may have already had a catharsis and come to resignedly accept the event as part of his life. If he was planning a stand-up routine around the murder, then I'd be concerned!:bugeyed
    Hey, thanks for the link!:) I didn't know Larry Hagman was a singer and a rather decent one at that. I also saw Muhammad Ali in that clip, The Greatest boxer maybe but definitely not such a great singer!:D

    I noticed Diana Ross was doing arena shows at that time. Correct me if I'm wrong but I think Michael was as well until the success of Thriller propelled him (and the Jacksons) into doing stadium shows. So in Los Angeles, while Diana was performing at The Forum, Michael, in a few years, would be performing at Dodger Stadium.
    I've never watched either version of Dallas.:no: As far as I know it is/was an evening soap opera and that genre doesn't really appeal to guys!:bugeyed:D Through cultural osmosis I have, of course, heard of the "Who shot J.R.?" cliffhanger. By the way, who did shoot J.R.?

    Truth be told, I haven't watched a TV show during its original airing in years though I did watch some DVD box sets of 24 rather recently.

    As I was lecturing Lorraine, you need to be very selective with your TV viewing because not only does it waste time but, more critically, it regresses your mind into a passive state.
    Not that it would in any way make her deserving of her fate but there is some question over whether she knew her assailants. The company you keep can bring you down!:bugeyed
    I just realized that your question is also a euphemistic way of asking whether someone is a prostitute!:D
    There's been some tragic news related to the inauguration. A 15 year old honor roll student who performed at the inauguration was gunned down by gang members. You can read more about her here:

    When the task requires it!

    I haven't seen the Bad 25 documentary yet but I still bought the deluxe edition of the album when it came out!:yes: However, better timing of the film's release would surely have helped the album's sales with the general public.

    If you mean the coronation of Emperor Obama, yes, I saw a couple of news reports on it!:bugeyed
