Jimmy hendrix was NOT the greatest guitar player of all time. He was like a 2 year old throwing paint at the wall and calling it modern art.
His singing was awful and he shouldve tried tuning his guitar once in a while (EVH & Vai fan)

A film/drama can immediately be judged as worthy of turning off if: begins with a scene with someone being pursued, breathlessly through a forest, includes a scene with a person walking in slow motion toward the camera and away from a huge fiery explosion, dropping to the ground in that hero crouching pose.

Ugly what I wrote, wasn't it? But wait, it gets worse.....

If you go down the list of mass shootings at U.S. schools, most of the killers turned the guns on themselves after killing classmates and teachers. Several others were killed by police, and a few were taken into custody alive.

Two are now out of prison. They were arrested in a state that, at the time, could not charge juveniles as adults (the law in that state as since been changed) But they probably learned their lesson in Juvie lockup. Or have they?

One has since been arrested with.wait for it. an illegal handgun. The other is now applying for a concealed carry permit under a different name - which he legally changed. And unlike registered sex offenders, nobody who ends up living next to them will even know they're there. There is currently no registration for freed mass murderers. Until they go off again, which Ill bet my thumbs they do. Maybe theyll live next to one of us. Or next to one of our grown children and their babies. Nobody will even know theyre there. Until you know when.

If you don't think there's a chance of that, my brother, go talk to Santa Claus. :)

That made me check to see if our guy was still locked up.


And never coming out.

Possibly one of JVCD,s best movies started pretty much like that.

Its a Wonderful Life is rubbish. It labours the point and the ending just falls on you with no subtlety.

The Bishops Wife (Cary Grant and David Niven) is a far superior Christmas film.

I have a feeling of deja vu.

A hot dog on a bun is a sandwich.

Cheesecake is not a cake. It is just a big tart.

Pineapple on pizzas isnt a big deal. Its just not very good.
