I must've watched the original John Carpenter flick Assault on Precinct 13 2 dozen times before I realized that, in the movie, the assault takes place in District 13, Precinct 7(? or something).

Oh, yeah, I forgot to mention that I'm re-re-reading Vance's Eyes of the Overworld, which I somehow accidently bought for my kindle when I thought I was just looking at editions. No matter. The wit and roguery shine through even after the 3rd or so reading!
I thought that one was the best of the four.
Haters gonna hate.
Not to detract from your point, but "cool" is as old as the saxophone playing of Lester Young (1930s) and "cowabunga" came from a children's television program from the fifities.
Ray Manzarek at the piano telling tales (usually awe-struck ones of the sociopathic Jim Morrison's antisocial behavior) was one of rock's great storyteller acts.

However, this clip is all that needs to be said about Everybody Loves Raymond.
Indeed. I haven't seen much of either show, really, but Everybody Loves Raymond seems much worse than Big Bang Theory.
In other news, earlier today I watched the episode where they play D&D with the girls. I thought, overall, in its portrayal of D&D playing was rather cute and even a little touching at the end.
But when Howard tried to force a clearly uncomfortable Amy and Sheldon into roleplaying hawt sexytime, I thought to myself, clearly, he needs to read more Paizo threads.
I thought most of the D&D stuff was pretty funny, but, overall, many of the show's jokes were pretty terrible. [Shrugs] It's prime time American network television. What do you want?

That pretty much matches my approximation.
Dark Side is tough, though, if you have to spend any time listening to classic rock radio on a regular basis. My advice is: don't do it, and Dark Side will be awesome each and every time.

All dope shiznit!!
I asked my mother, who quite likes The Big Bang Theory, a series of questions.
"Why do you like the Big Bang Theory?" "Because it is funny."
"Who is your favorite character?" "Sheldon. He's so funny."
"Who is your least favorite character?" "Howard, because he's a pervert." (My mother doesn't share many of my Don Juan characteristics.)
"Is Penny a loser?" "No, she's a nice girl."
"Do you think it makes fun of nerds?" "Yes. So what? Seinfeld made fun of yuppies, All in the Family made fun of blue-collar Americans, Sanford and Son made fun of black garbage collectors. Who the hell are nerds that they can't be made fun of?"

Happy Mother's Day!
Is that old skool now? Damn.
I've got Speakerboxxx... on my iPod and keep listenng to it at work and it keeps blowing my mind that it's ten years old...
Anyway, after sharing greetings with Limey last night, I tried to link some John Lennon songs and kept getting booted off Paizo. I wonder if Yoko's legal team is watching even here...

The operatic shriek around 4:00 makes me blubber, every time.
