  1. I adore Betty White. One of the most enjoyable evenings that I ever spent was in her company at a media convention. She and my boss traded barbs all evening. She asked him if he was glad that he lived to the age of Viagra? He retorted that at his age that was like "putting a new flagpole on a condemned building". He asked her if she still liked to watch dirty movies. Her riposte was "Yes, [she] did, but she liked to watch them backwards because she liked the part where they got dressed and went home." Betty White is a national treasure. If I ever need a pick me up, I just watch a clip from "The Golden Girls" on youtube.

  3. Vanessa melted my heart. David, I couldn't agree with you more.

    Betty is an absolute hoot! She will be sorely missed when she's gone.

  5. Okay, so the doctor in the clip from the film about marijuana is my doctor. And it was really weird to see him in that trailer.

    Betty White rocks.

    The Bud Lite ad wasn't really controversial. It was just disgusting.

    Vanessa Williams is beautiful, inside and out.

    Thanks SB, I love it when someone rights my posts. I remember watching Betty White as a kid on her husband Allen Ludden's show Password. Man has she had a career. Mary Tyler Moore,Golden Girls, Boston Legal,and so many others.

    I was curious about how old she is, God Damn the woman is 86 years old, and still going strong.

    Thanks for the clip Andy, glad I caught it.

  8. Peterparker must be an LA denizen 'cause I know that doctor, too. He's a good guy.

    Betty White was great in Boston Legal, too - nutty as always and a little bit evil.

  9. I hope the "Super High Me" film editor is better than the apparent stoner who edited that trailer. It drags!

  10. So I will freely admit that I have been in love with Vanessa Williams since she was crowned Miss America! I think she is the most beautiful woman to ever live and now I know that it is from the inside out! She is what Miss America should be!!!! A wonderful person, a beautiful person, from the inside. Wow, we get so few celebrities like her. Way to go Vanessa!

  11. I'm Betty White, bitch!

    Just love it! Oh, God. Pull my finger!

  12. OK, I liked the Bud Light commercial. I'm not sayin' it's art, but I can certainly see how it would have audience appeal.

    No, JNO, it's not wrong to fall in love with Peterparker. He usually offers pretty good insight. Not that that has anything to do with falling in love, but if you're gonna fall for a guy, at least get one with some smarts! :)

  13. The link to the Super High Me site has an extra " at the end, which makes the link not actually work.

    just an FYI
