Roseanne’s TV Anniversary

image

Roseanne debuted on this day in 1988. It tackled many subjects and had several firsts.

Roseanne went from this and continued doing standup, tv talk show and has had and still does radio fairly often. Roseanne’s website is Roseanne World.

Fun Fact: Although I like both people, I’m glad this didn’t happen…
Sam Kinison and Roseanne were the original picks to star in Married with Children as Al and Peg Bundy.

Wondering

Why doesn’t the early days of r&b get more credit for the birth of rock & roll, since it all came from it?

Will there ever be a time when more than just the Republican and Democrat machines run the political world? How about someone, ANYONE, not on the take or corrupted by money, power, ego etc. That’s not to say there aren’t great people in the political world, but to exist in it, you have to play the game, which is a corrupt landscape to begin with.

Am I the only one that will sometimes just buy a bag of croutons and pop ‘em in my mouth like chips? There are certain croutons that are unbelievably delicious.

The Zombies never get enough credit for their excellent 60’s material. Underrated.

What will the ticket prices be for major sporting events in five, ten, fifteen years, considering the high price already? Something has to give somewhere.

I know it’s really early, but I’m going to say the Colts will make it to the Super Bowl. Yeah, I’m a biased fan of the Colts, but I think they have something special.

BoJack Horseman!

Who will be the next President, Bush or Clinton? You know it will be one of them. It’s all in the cards. They pick ‘em, but we “vote.”

Buy vinyl. Physical experience. Holding a physical copy is always better than an mp3 in your device. It’s just better sonically overall. Sure, there is surface noise etc., but nothing beats a great record…period.

Film collections everyone should watch: Martin Scorsese, Stanley Kubrick, Quentin Tarantino, John Hughes.

Olympics has a very interesting behind the scenes history.

The greatest things about television and radio both is the storytelling. Personalities in situations. The stars are important, but the art of the story is important in any kind of entertainment. Make us care in some way, shape or form.

Greatest modern day singers/bands: (I’m mean for REAL, not in the forced sense of what is always pushed) Jeff Tweedy of Wilco and Tweedy, Jack White, Band of Skulls.

Legends who still have IT in music and movies: Robert Plant, David Bowie, Bruce Springsteen, Paul Westerberg/The Replacements, Al Pacino, Robert DeNiro, Tom Hanks.

Bob’s Burgers!

Will anything happen once people see the Soaked In Bleach documentary?

Greatest modern day actors: Johnny Depp, Daniel Day-Lewis, Joaquin Phoenix, Robert Downey Jr. I think all are probably the best of our time. Not that they can’t have a bad flick once in a while, but the body of their work is mostly good to great.

Greatest modern day actresses: Angelina Jolie, Meryl Streep, Rachel McAdams, Cate Blanchett, Amy Adams, Reese Witherspoon, Marion Cottilard.
All do some fantastic work.

Will there ever be cures for any disease that makes a lot of money in the medical world? If there is, would we ever really know? It all makes a lot of money, including the research.

Peace

Personal peace.

Peace, especially in a personal way, is so nice to have when life goes erratic in many directions. Inner peace.

People come and go. Those that enter your life and exit for various reasons. Sometimes it’s brief and other times, a lengthy stay.

Everything builds character, develops who you are as a person and growth through the years.

I like nice people. I know many and I’m sure you do too. Once in a while, you run into someone who’s as authentic and genuine as anybody. Those are great people. I salute the nice people.

I try to remember the good and not the bad about people. Sometimes it’s tough, because at times those that seem nice can be evil.

Through all the nasty stuff, as times goes on, I just ignore. It’s almost like people who hurl that stuff, I just hit mute.

Inner peace is where it’s at.
