Misty Mountain Hop

Not in the cool tv show loop

I must be old, i seem to not watch shows that others love and watch shows they seem to hate. LOL

For different reasons i never got around to watching some of these shows or watched them and they didn't grab me. Now i can go back and start over with a show and love it, like i did with Buffy.

So popular shows i don't or have never watched :

American Idol
Any of the Battlestar Galactica remake/spinoffs
and a few others past and present

Now here's some shows i like and just seem to rub people the wrong :

Two and a Half Men
Family Guy
Amazing Race
Ghost Hunters
to name just a few

Some shows i've come to like :
Wizards of Waverly Place

Seems a lot of people like The Big Bang Theory but i have a theory (his pun intended) that after another year or so the usual "fan" backlash will start like it has with many shows about hos the show isn't funny, i see this with The Office (which to me seems like a show now of a bunch of actors wanting to get out of their contracts and be in the movies) and the Simpsons. I don't mind shows that last longer than 3 or 4 seasons like Law & Order, NCIS,House.

My i'm chatty tonight and might even came near a point, wonders never cease.

I'm sure regular readers of the E Banana know of my love of Shonen Knife so it comes as no surprise i'm posting pics of the greatest band from Japan.

M - Pop Music

I remember when MTV used to play this like every 15 minutes.

Everybody talking about pop pop pop music....

The Madness Continues In The Funny Book World

So a copy of Detective Comics #27 just sold for a Million dollars beating the recent sale of Action Comics #1. Really i can't think of anything more stupid and a waste of money.
I'm almost ashamed to be a comic book collector.
I guess Spider-Man will be next.
Again i can think of so many more better uses for a million dollars.

I hear Gotham City Billionaire Bruce Wayne had no comment on why he bought the comic book...

Proof The World Is Insane

One Million Dollars for a comic book.
I'm a life long comic book collector and love comics but if you ask me paying $1 Million for a comic book, even if it is the "HOLY GRAIL" of comics is insane.
I can think of many more things i'd do with a Million.
Person has more money than sense.

Number 5

Dick Cheney had heart attack number 5. I'm surprised i thought he had his heart removed years ago like he did with his sense of humility,compassion,sanity,civility, morals and sense of humor ( you know the things that make people human).
I guess he dodged the dirt nap again just like he did the Draft!
Dick, there is no man more aptly named.

Best Damn Cookie

In my humble opinion, these are the best damn cookies going.

You know, the United States of America aka USA USA USA has a big problem. It has no sense of humor anymore.
Every little conservative and liberal whinge and scream outrage at jokes they find taboo in their un-realistic political correct world.

Nothing and i mean nothing is out of bounds when it comes to comedy. George Carlin believed that and so does Ricky Gervais, two chaps who i find funny and really admire among many others.

Many a pompous person needs their hypocritical balloon popped.

You know God has a sense of humor, it explains Sarah Palin. *rimshot*

Humor is the best way to deal with being human, so get over yourselves.

Hear the one about the agoraphobic who went to the store to buy milk? No neither have i, they never leave the house! *rimshot*

There's only one Winter Olympic sport that i like and will watch and i finally got to see some, Curling!

I don't know why i love it but i do. Can't wait to see more.

It may be THE most perfect sport ever.

Michael Palin For President

Yes i know he can't be because he's British but he's the only Palin i'd ever vote for, certaintly not the "wet dream" of the ultra extreme radical conservative teabagging right (who aren't right about anything) . As they destroy what's left of the Republican party they wallow in their own un-reality of doing nothing but attack anyone they deem "left wing", you know Jesus would be considered a leftwinger with all his talk of peace and boy does he need a haircut!

If "Saint" Sarah of the Vapid generation runs, it means Obama gets a second term and i think that's about the only way he can get re-elected right now.

I believe in an America where everyone's civil rights are treasured and fought for, women have the right to choose, gays have the right to marry, people have the right to be any religon, people have the right to be any political party, people have the right to be liberal or conservative, people have the right to think what they want.

Obama Fix

So it seems President Obama is having an image crisis and his poll numbers are dropping (still no where near the bottom like Bush the second's) and he can't handle the "Do Nothings" aka the Republicans. What can he do?
Hire Samuel L. Jackson to take his place. No one and i mean no one will mess with Sam and the muthaf'ers will do what he says or else.

Let's Get Sam in there now!

*this is sarcasm for the humor impaired*

Eclectic Banana Tumblr

I think this is the best description of the E Banana Tumblr :
by Seltzerlizard
Follow Eclectic Banana for all your pop culture, trashy culture, cool stuff, random stuff, comics, movies, and occasional forays into pictures of woman who are surely unsuited to work on our nation’s fine railways.

Mille Bornes

I don't know how many of you have played this game but i love Mille Bornes. It's simple and fun and the best thing to come out of France since Champagne.

OK this is too cute not to re-post here.

Blogging Blues

I've noticed that i seem to be blogging less this week on my blogs, been fighting the blues. Real life stuff and blogger envy, everyone has such better, wittier and popular blogs than me. I know the problem is me, i find it hard to translate my odd mind and thoughts to the blog page. The EB Tumblr is closer to the way my brain works with my sense of humor and random pic postings.
I'm sure if i hear some good news in real life i'll be back to posting on my 3 poor neglected blogs.

Before i go, just what in the hell is this google "Buzz" thing on my Gmail?

Politics is still a stupid subject to waste a blog on and they're all crooks and liars anyways, Politicians that is.

Jett It

Joan Jett - Bad Reputation

Ian Carmichael

Ian Carmichael has passed away at 89. He was one of my favorite British actors and in my opinion the best actor to play Lord Peter Wimsey.
His wife said he got sick over the Christmas holidays and never recovered and passed away at home.
Rest in peace and thank you Ian for all great work in television and movies.

Bad Idea

One of my favorite comics was "Our Army At War" starring Sgt. Rock. For many years Hollywood has tried to make the World War Two based comic book into a movie, at one time Ahnuld the Governator was picked to star. Now Hollywood hack producer Joel Silver has the rights and is ditching WWII for the future : Silver says "It's a little bit in the future. As a war movie, it's not going to be 'where it's been,' it's going to be 'where it's going.' We didn't want to do Iraq, we didn't want to do a contemporary war. We wanted to do a sort of futuristic war." Gee it's like he wants to make it into another G.I. Joe film.

Can we say "train wreck" boys and girls? I'm hoping this piece crap hits development hell and never see's the light of day.

TV Intros from days gone by

The 1960's




Remember when tv shows had cool titles and theme songs?
