    Then why, in the year 2017, did all the rich men in the United States get a huge tax cut and the poor Lazaruses did not? No further questions, your honor.

    Spotlight, SiriusXM Channel 4

    I worked all summer long on that list and I didn't notice one song was listed twice. I made the correction, which means I have to post the list a fourth time. This is getting to be a habit. Spotlight Channel 4 will begin a Summer Songs countdown on August 30. I don't know how many days it will...

    Hollywood is out of ideas!

    After reading all the heated discussion about "mainstream vs. niche," a discussion arising from my proposal for compiling a list of our favorite movies, I can only repeat the words of Steve Urkel: " Did I do that?"

    Hollywood is out of ideas!

    A Movies Madness would go through several rounds and we'd end up with one film that is supposedly the best. My idea would have resulted in a ranked list of at least 50 movies. Unfortunately, my idea turned out to be impractical. I should have suggested something a majority of us could agree on...

    The Good News Thread

    In the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital commercials, Marlo Thomas implores us to "please make a donation to end childhood cancer." Here is a 12-year-old boy whose pig was auctioned for $15,000. The boy gave all the money to St. Jude. Marlo is proud of him. We all are. 7th grader donates...

    You don't have any opinions? Then what the heck are you doing on a message board? Okay, we'll forget about compiling a list of our favorite films. And since I'm the only one who submitted a top-ten list, Pete's Dragon will forever stand as DRC members' greatest film of all time. :D

    The DRC Madness concluded with the "last film standing." My proposal would result in a list of the 50 (or more) best movies, as chosen by DRC members. To allay Mister scotch's demurral – and you all know I'm not the demurral-allayer I used to be – I suggest we consider only mainstream movies...

    "What do you call that hairstyle?" "Arthur." I think the Beatles' A Hard Day's Night should have been on that list.

    Hollywood is out of ideas!

    Here is my boss, bitchin', groovy idea: We each list our favorite movies, ranked from #1 to #10. Somebody – I guess I'm volunteering – can combine all the lists by giving 10 points to each #1 movie, nine points to each #2 movie and so on. Ties would be broken by box-office performance. We would...

    Hollywood is out of ideas!

    In 2000, the American Film Institute put put a list of the 100 greatest films of the 20th century. I had seen only ten of them: A few Disney films, a few Marx Brothers films, Singin' In The Rain and It's A Wonderful Life. I am not a fan of action films, dramas, superhero movies, science fiction...

    All Things Disney - Except Movies

    I'm not a doctor, nor do I play one on television, but if you had a 103° fever, wouldn't you have been better off riding Splash Mountain instead of Space Mountain?
