Now, my only question oilcanboyd. Is this the same episode where Larry has the inappropriate thoughts about the lady in  the pink wrap around dressing gown with the feathered neckline whom he imagines sexually confronts him in the bathroom while he is perusing the literature in the john --again I think this is at a friend's house but whatever.

I can't remember.  Everything you describe sounds familiar, but I can't remember if that was all one episode. 

I just remember the "titmouse" thing and being reminded of "Get A Life".

Incidentally, kam,re:#511  You are the only other person that I've run into around here who was disappointed with the sell-out of The Sopranos cut and run, while David Chase was doing it, and as far as I can tell nobody else has discerned that possibly so was Tony en famille.

No. I liked the Sopranos finale.  You or I could have written a definitive ending with Tony dead or in Prison or Witness Protection.  That would've been nice and tidy but boring.  I like how things were left open.

I didn't like the FOTC finale.  There were no songs!  Except the crap one by the Crazy Dogggz.  In all the other episodes they at least did two songs.  And in this one we got one (unless we're counting the rocky-esque instrumental to the credits).

The song was Bret's anger-dance, a la Kevin Bacon in "Footloose".

Transitioning from the Borat "Yes" to the Jemaine "Yes" is not that hard. And quite fun.  Try it!

Hell, maybe the concept of "John From Cincinnati" was that emanations from a dead planet were recieved by aliens, and they tried their hand at an HBO drama because one of the aliens liked to surf and could breathe through the toxins:  That would've been the only way to save Season Two, have it go so postmodern than the Aliens realise that their new pilot for what would have been HBO in an Ancient Civilizations on Earth:  California 101 course in COLLEGE, would have been a bomb the more they learn about surfing culture and the way people behave.  In a visual joke, the bust of USC's current football coach is sold for meth, which some of the aliens have discovered they like, from the Hawaiins, far enough out from the blast and still rolling, bring on the Boeings that have survived on the remaining jet fuel.  Where is the dramatic arc you say?  We got okayed for season two and I'm DAVID FUCKING MILCH!!!

I mean, I like the cojones, but a man of his age should stay away from the crank.

With Milch, I'm not so sure it's the crank or that he's in a position where everyone "yes"-es him.  Even geniuses occasionally come up with ideas that should just be put out of their misery; but when you have Milch's track record, nobody's brave enough to whisper "gas this one" in his ear.  Just my opinion. 

Important TV news......Julie Newmar says her Catwoman outfit is going into the Smithsonian next year.

It wil be interesting to see if another network picks up JOHN.  Spike, perhaps?

They're only interested in CSI and UFC.  I long for the days when they would run MXC all the time, but nowadays it seems like they only run it at like 2 in the morning.

The only thing that can possibly pick up "John From Cincinnati" is a hat made of tinfoil.  Trust me on this one.

I hate seeing Deadwood characters in other roles. 

I sort of feel this way about "Band of Brothers"


For any WWII movie buffs this is must watch TV ...still runs occassionally on cable.  but best to purchase the full set on DVD and devote a solid weekend to it.  You will be riveted.

For the curious, if you liked "Saving Private Ryan" you will most likely love this series.  If SPR was too much for you, then you might want to pass...

Watched a bit of the filming/taping of the new series  "The Journeyman" acouple of weekends ago while staying at the downtown Biltmore after a friends wedding --which was held on the heliport of the US Bank building.  Their first "wedding" held on the heliport of L.A.'s tallest building.

Anyway, Journeyman looks interesting enough for me to check out a few episodes when it debuts on NBC.  This episode was taking place in 1970s San Francisco.  When you see them at the hot dog cart...think of me, standing about 15 yards from the actors...

One thing I noticed (I guess this happens when you get old) is that costume group lumps all of the 70s in the same period.  Very different dress from early 70s to late 70s   also they had people wearing shoes from the 60s.   A minor point in the scheme of things I suppose...
