'Hue' Is It?

Here's another game! The only reason I'm posting it is because I scored so well.

I've been sitting here, for what seems like forever (three minutes), trying to think of a witty title for this post. That's all I was able to come up with. I'm dissapointed.

The game is an online version of the 'Munsell Hue Test', and is used to determine your ability to distinguish subtle differences in color. The object of the game is to drag and drop the colors in each row to arrange them by hue order. The first and last color chips are fixed. To receive your score, click on "Score Test" at the bottom of the page when you're done.

Anyway, I scored an 8! The lower the score the better. They say that the lowest score possible is 0, but when I got my test score, they told me the lowest score for my age range was -4. Also, I tried clicking the "Score Test" button on the bottom of the page without moving any of the tiles, and I scored 968.

Cryptic Canvas

A while back, I blogged about a dark M&M's game, where the player would have to identify 5o horror movies cryptically displayed in a piece of art.

Now, to celebrate Empire Magazine's 20th Birthday, they've created their own 'Cryptic Canvas'. Can you identify all 50 movies?

Here are a few hints.....

1. The movies are all from the last 20 years...
2. There are no movies titled 'Kung-Fu Cheerleaders' or 'Car Eating Dragon'
3. Sometimes it helps to put the word 'the' in front of the movie title.
4. If you don't want to enter an e-mail address to save your results, copy and paste 'idontwantto@aol.com' into the box.

Blech

I don't care if he stays in hotels, this man is crazy.

Watsonville

I was able to travel to the beautiful city of Watsonville to inspect a property last week. Here are a few photos from my journey. While I was driving, the Martinelli's Apple Cider factory caught my eye. I had no idea that Martinelli's Apple Cider was made in this little town.


It's not a very big factory. I would have thought that the factory would be huge! But it's just a small factory, across the street from a high school.


Did you toast New Year's Eve with Martinelli's Apple Cider when you were a kid? I vaguely remember drinking Martinelli's Apple Cider while the adults all had their libations.


This shocked me.... I tried calling the family center at the park where Sotomayor Field is located, they have no idea who it was named for.


I'm just going to make up a story.... Supreme Court Nominee Sonia Sotomayor was the Pele of the Bronx, so they named the park after her.... There you go, I could think of nothing funny to say about Sonia Sotomayor.


Finally, here's the vicious beast that was out of his cage when we inspected his home.

Sleepover

Alleen, Noah's cousin, is spending the night tonight. We all had a really fun evening. We ate some pizza, watched Strawberry Shortcake and Curious George, went to the park, and had strawberries for dessert.

Now it's midnight, and I'm sleeping in Noah's bunk bed.

It's really an interesting story about how this came to be... Well, it'll be interesting to the people who read this blog.

Noah and Alleen were tucked into Noah's bunk bed, I read them a couple bedtime stories, then we shut everything down (except for the hall light). Colleen and I went to our room and got ready, until we heard Noah and Alleen talking about how Noah was scared....

Colleen was already in bed, so I went and sat on the floor and asked if they wanted to hear a bedtime song. They both enthusiastically agreed to a bedtime song, however, Noah demanded that he get to sing 'Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star' before I get a chance to sing anything.

After he finished, after starting over three times, we all decided that they'd like to hear the 'Winnie the Pooh' song. Halfway through, Noah wrapped his arms around my neck and said 'I want to sleep in Mommy and Daddy's bed.' Alleen quickly said 'I'm going with him, I don't want to sleep alone.'

Sounds good to me, I'll go ahead and trade, Noah and Alleen would sleep in my bed, and I'll sleep in Noah's bed.

Ten minutes later, my name is called and my bedtime story services are needed yet again.... So I laid at the end of the bed and asked what kind of story they'd like to hear. Alleen asked for a George Washington story. Of course I had a stack of George Washington stories handy.... If you've never heard the story about how George Washington loved trees, you've really been missing out! He loved them so much, that his mother told him that if he loved trees so much, he should eat one. So he went for a walk in the forest, found the perfect tree, and ate it. After he ate it, he noticed his teeth had turned into wood, and that's how they came up with the famous tongue twister:

How much wood could a wood-George george if a wood-George could george wood?

A wood-George could george as much wood, as a wood-George could george, if a Wood-George could george wood.

That story earned me the title of the "funniest person in all the land". After that story, they were right on the edge of slumber, so the question was posed again, "Would you like to hear another story?"

"Why don't you tell us another story about George Washington?" Alleen says. So I go back to my 'infinite' supply of George Washington stories, and tell them about how George Washington helped make the United States what they are today, until they fell asleep.

So now it's midnight, and I'm all alone in Noah's bed. All alone.....

Father's Day Card

Ok, so here it is, let me walk you through it.


As you can see, Noah wrote 'HAPPY' really well at the top of the card. 'FATHERS' is a little out of order, but still clear. And 'DAY' is clear in the middle of the card, right above the picture of me.


Here's the back of the card. You can see the picture of Noah, the number 3 (which is how old he is) on the left hand side of the picture, and his signature on the right side of the picture.


Finally, you open the card, and find two large pictures of me. It made me feel pretty important!

Do You Have A Better Idea?


"To those who simply criticize without offering new ideas of their own,
I have to ask,
What's your answer?"

Barack Obama

Father's Day

I hope everyone had a wonderful Father's Day. Noah and I had a wonderful day! We took mommy with us to see "UP"! What a fantastic movie! The 3D glasses we were wearing helped hide the tears....

I got a beautiful card from Noah that I'll try to post pictures of later on Noah's Notables.

By the way, 'Boardwalk Fries'.... I have a bone to pick with you.... Do not send advertisements to my home stating that you will be opening on June 20, only to still have not opened on June 21! You owe me fries! You are a murderer of love!

Ok, to finish this up, I'm going to send you to the site of a game designer that came up with a clever way of notifying his employer and fellow employees that he was leaving his job. Click on the banner below to see how he used Mario let them know!

Ooooh..... A Hot Lips Phone!

A couple of weeks ago I posted a blog about the State of California attempting to sell the Orange County Fairgrounds and other large state owned landmarks for a large sum of money to close the budget gap. Maybe, they should do an internal investigation to find out where they're spending money.

Officials in Los Angeles County have found more than 8,000 phone lines, that cost the county approximately $1.5 million annually, that have been abandoned! Auditors, who are only halfway through their search, say the number of abandoned phone lines may top 16,000, totaling approximately $3 million a year in phone bills!

I wonder how many people we pay to sit in an office to do nothing all day..... Ha Ha Ha Colleen! Very funny! I actually do work in my office!

No Fly Zone

Well, we can't say 'Oh, that Barack Obama, he wouldn't hurt a fly!' anymore....

He wrecked that fly!



And since we have a young hip president.... You know what that means! Oh, you don't? Well, I'll tell you! REMIX!!!!!

Can You Guess This TV Theme? #22 - Answer

Who would have thought that twins Brenda and Brandon Walsh, played by Shannen Doherty and Jason Priestly, would have fit in so well when they moved from Minnesota to Beverly Hills, California.



With Dylan McKay, Steve Sanders, and David Silver, played by Luke Perry, Ian Ziering and Brian Austin Green respectively, and Kelly Taylor, Donna Martin and Andrea Zuckerman, played by Jennie Garth, Tori Spelling and Gabrielle Carteris respectively, the show was on the air for ten years.

Do you remember that time that Dylan got married to the daughter of the mob boss that was trying to kill Dylan's father..... And the mob boss wasn't comfortable with their marriage, and was going to kill Dylan..... So he put a hit out on Dylan, but the daughter of the mob boss was mistakenly shot and killed when she was driving Dylan's car with her head covered with the hood of a rain coat? I'm sorry, did I ruin it for you?


Did you know that the show's creator, Darren Starr, is from Potomac, Maryland. The show was originally titled 'Potomac 20854', but was changed later to a more recognizable Beverly Hills?

And that Kelly Taylor, Donna Martin, Steve Sanders and David Silver were the only series regulars through all ten seasons? Nat Bussichio, the owner of the Peach Pit played by Joe E. Tata, was also in every season, but wasn't considered a regular.

Ok, I could go on for hours about this show.... But I'll only give you one more. Dylan McKay, as noted before was played by Luke Perry, was first featured in the show's second episode. Luke Perry was only going to be in one or two episodes, and Fox was initially reluctant to have him included as a regular, but Aaron Spelling (the show's producer) felt differently and paid Perry's salary himself during the first two years, until the network was won over.

Anybody who wants to have a 'Beverly Hills, 90210' marathon.... Just let me know.... I'll make it happen.

MVPuppets 8

The Los Angeles Lakers championship parade is today. So you know what that means.... More of the puppet commercials.

Here's the thing.... I appreciate Kobe and LeBron, their talents and their athleticism. I'm not typically in awe of someone's physical abilities, but a couple of years ago I was listening to a Kobe Bryant interview, and a reporter asked Kobe about a play in the game where he jumped into the air with the ball in one hand, did a 180 degree turn, put the ball in his other hand, and then slam dunked the basketball. Kobe replied with, 'Well, I saw the defender, and I made the decision to switch hands and dunk the ball on the other side so there was no chance it could be blocked.' Of course I paraphrased that, but I just jumped in my office and I was barely able to think about landing on two feet. So, I'm just saying, don't go with him if he tells you that he wants to show you his trophy in his hotel room, but at least get him to sign a coffee cup.


Surprises

I have trouble being away from Noah for more than 8 hours.... I can't even imagine what it would be like, for me or Noah, if I was deployed in a war zone for months....

I'm warning you now, I am not able to watch the video of the father surprising his little boy in his classroom without involuntarily bursting into tears.... And I don't care if that makes me a girl!

"Oh mylanta!" this show was good!

I'm super excited! John Stamos has announced that he's trying to make a 'Full House' reunion!!!!

Danny Tanner, Jesse Katsopolis, Joey Gladstone played three father figures to three adorable children, D.J., Stephanie and Michelle Tanner.

Did you know that the initial premise of the show was based on three single stand-up comedians (played by Bob Saget, John Stamos, and Dave Coulier) living together and was titled "House of Comics", until it was changed to the family program 'Full House'?

Also, did you know that Uncle Jesse's last name was Cochran, until the second season when it was changed to Katsopolis? And he was originally supposed to be "Uncle Adam", but John Stamos liked "Uncle Jesse" better...

On an ending note, I got to see John Stamos play drums with 'The Beach Boys', at a hot air ballon festival in Tustin in the mid 90's! It was awesome! He's so dreamy!

Can You Guess This TV Theme? #21

Thank God It's Friday! I thought this week would never end. I've been getting crap from some people who think I'm choosing TV themes that are too recognizable. At this point, most of the TV themes that I've included in the blog have been for nostalgic value. I've posted themes from shows that I think most everyone has a special connection.

Well, I was a fat kid, and my best friends were my television and my Nintendo. So, I developed a lot of special connections with television shows.

For example, it make me happy whenever I hear 'The Andy Griffith Show' theme whistled. It just flips a switch in my brain...

And when I hear the 'As Days Go By' theme from 'Family Matters', I think of Steve Urkel crashing into Eddie Winslow, knocking over a stack of Harriet's good china, adjusting his glasses and saying, 'Did I do that?' in his nasally and whiny voice...

I was very surprised to see that Grandmom does not sit down to read my blog every morning, because I'm sure she would have answered 'The Commish', but I'll give her a pass...

Should I make these more difficult? Which is more fun, the challenge of the game, or hearing and seeing a television intro and thinking "Awwwww, I loved that show...".

Can You Guess This TV Theme? #20 - Answer

Did you know that during all 8 seasons of 'The Andy Griffith Show', it was ranked in the top ten in the Nielsen Ratings? And the show is one of only three shows, including 'Seinfeld' and 'I Love Lucy', that ended their series at the top of the Nielsen Ratings.


Sheriff Andy Griffith, Deputy Barney Fife, Opie, Aunt Bee, Floyd the Barber, and Gomer and Goober Pyle bumbled around Mayberry for 8 seasons and 249 episodes.

This show made Ron Howard a household name. Geez, if only he had gotten off his ass to accomplish something after leaving 'The Andy Griffith Show'

Don Knotts won five Emmy Awards for his portrayal of Deputy Barney Fife. Andy Griffith wasn't even nominated for his role as Andy Griffith!

Did you know that the theme was whistled by songwriter Earle Hagen. Also, did you know that the theme, titled 'The Fishing Hole', was was originally written with words...

Here are the song and the lyrics:


Well, now, take down your fishin' pole, and meet me at The Fishin' Hole,

We may not get a bite all day, but don't you rush away.

What a great place to rest your bones, and mighty fine for skippin' stones,
You'll feel fresh as a lemonade, a-settin' in the shade.

Whether it's hot, whether it's cool, oh what a spot for whistlin' like a fool.

What a fine day to take a stroll and wander by The Fishin' Hole,
I can't think of a better way, to pass the time o' day.

We'll have no need to call the roll when we get to The Fishin' Hole,
There'll be you, me, and Old Dog Trey, to doodle time away.

If we don't hook a perch or bass, we'll cool our toes in dewy grass,
Or else pull up a weed to chaw, and maybe set and jaw.

Hangin' around, takin' our ease, watchin' that hound a-scratchin' at his fleas.

Come on, take down your fishin' pole and meet me at The Fishin' Hole,
I can't think of a better way to pass the time o' day.

Apparently some people were not happy with my reference to the 'Dukes of Hazzard' theme as the "most recognizable TV Theme ever". Is this the most recognizable television theme ever? Who was the whistler? Oh yeah, Can You Guess This TV Theme?

Wednesday, June 10, 2009

Can You Guess This TV Theme? #19 - Answer

From 1960 to 1972, for 12 seasons and 369 episodes, 'My Three Sons' owned the airways... 369 episodes! We're lucky if shows, well shows that don't star Heidi and Spencer Pratt (have you seen 'I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here!'? What a waste of space!) are on the air for more than one episode.

I'm not basing this on any information, other than my limited research, but I think this was the first show ever with a single father raising kids. I guess 'Make Room For Daddy' showed Danny Thomas as a single father for a season, but the mother was in the show initially. Does that count?

It's 'The Commish'! For some reason, I don't remember this show. I tried finding some semblance, some tiny clip of the show. I could find nothing! I vaguely remember the show being funny. And Colleen says they would watch 'The Commish' at her house. Do you remember this show? Did he always lose his pens? Does he love salami? What do you remember about this show?

Dear Mr. Odiferous

Dear Mr. Odiferous:

You had me fooled. You walked onto the plane in your suit and tie. A man this dapper must smell wonderful. This man must smell like a blooming flower in spring.

NOPE.COM!

I am disgruntled sir. I got up very early, just so I could take a shower and prepare myself for the day. I came to the conclusion that if I was going to be sitting in a big metal tube with wings, filled with recirculated air, and possibly a hundred or so of my peers, I would not want to smell like a 'bulbous baboon ass'.

To answer your question... No, I have never smelled a 'bulbous baboon ass', however, I can only imagine the smell is very unpleasant.

But, no, not you sir. You chose to defy the laws of human courtesy. You chose to sit in front of me. You chose to turn my stomach at 6:30 in the morning.

Sincerely,

Guy Who Sat Behind You On The Flight To Sacramento

Mad Hops

Is that the correct vernacular? "Mad Hops"?

I wasn't sure how many of you had seen the original Kobe Bryant Car Jump, so I thought I'd go ahead and post it....

Can You Guess This TV Theme? #16 - Answer

"Some Walk By Night, Some Fly By Day". You've been listening to the mellow tunes of Mr. Al Jarreau. That song was dedicated to Maddie from David.... He just wants you to know that he's thinking of you tonight....



That theme is so seductive and passionate! It just makes me feel all warm and mushy inside.... The theme was from possibly the best show ever, 'Moonlighting'! The show starred Cybill Shepherd as former model 'Madeline "Maddie" Hayes' and Bruce Willis as private dick 'David Addison', two star-crossed partners of the Blue Moon Detective Agency. The heat between "Maddie" and David on the show was scorching! There was always a sexual tension you could cut with a knife....

This was Bruce Willis at his best.... Before 'Die Hard', before starring as the voice of 'Mikey' in 'Look Who's Talking', before 'Armageddon'.... This is what made him a star. He was lighthearted and charming.... He embodied the role of David Addison. Well done sir, well done....

MVPuppets 4

The NBA finals between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Orlando Magic start tonight, so I thought I'd go ahead and post the final two Kobe and LeBron puppet commercials. I call them the 'last' two commercials because the Cleveland Cavaliers have lost their playoff series to the Orlando Magic, so I don't think there's any reason for Kobe Bryant and LeBron James to live together anymore. And I haven't seen a Dwight Howard puppet yet.

On one fun note, I did find out that the David Alan Grier provides the voice for the Kobe puppet, and 'Saturday Night Live' actor Kenan Thompson provides the voice for the LeBron puppet.

Ok, be honest Jerry.... Would you have known the answer if I didn't accidently send the answer to everyone in an email?

I can't believe that I'm going to put this in my blog, but the actual tagline for this show was: "She's got her head in the clouds. He's got his feet on the ground. Together, they're a match made in heaven." Who am I kidding, this is definitely not the lamest thing I've ever put in my blog.




'Dharma and Greg' was blah. It was there. It was something to watch at 2:30 AM in syndication on UPN. I liken it to a 'Phoebe Buffay and Ross Geller from Friends Get Married', but a little funnier....

For the second day in a row, I can't find anything remotely interesting to write about a show....

Oh! The show was created by Chuck Lorre! He's the same guy that created 'Two and a Half Men' and 'The Big Bang Theory'. Oooooh! 'Dharma and Greg' is credited as Jenna Elfman's big break.... Is that interesting?

In more interesting news, one of my shift keys is not working.

I've spent the last hour reading crap about this show, trying to find something interesting, and I could not find one thing! Well, at least nothing I think anybody else would want to know....

Did you know that Dr. John Carter, played by Noah Wyle, was born on June 4, 1971. Noah Wyle's birthday is actually June 4, 1971. WHOO!!!!! Bet I knocked your socks off with that one!

The show was created by Michael Crichton and Steven Spielberg.... But I thought that everyone knew that....

Can You Guess This TV Theme? #13 - Answer

Oh snap! It's 'The Wonder Years'!


The awesome show about Kevin Arnold and his family, Paul Pfeiffer, and the smoking hot Winnie Cooper.


Did you know that Daniel Stern was the voice of the narrator? Also, Fred Savage (Kevin Arnold) is the youngest person (at 13 years old) to be nominated for an Emmy for 'Outstanding Lead Actor for a Comedy Series'.

I'm still waiting for the entire series to come out on DVD. Of all the television series, I'd think that 'The Wonder Years' would be a highly coveted DVD set.

On a final note, the theme song from the show is the Beatles 'With A Little Help From My Friends'. But the theme used for the show was the cover, and it was sung by..... Joe Cocker! AH HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!!!!!!! Cocker!

A Little Piece Of History

I was inspecting an abandoned apartment complex in Los Angeles the other day, and I took some interesting pictures. The guy who used to own the property inherited it from his father. His father used to restore and race old cars. I'm from Orange County, California, and I appreciate good Orange County history. Check out this old sign I found while walking the property.


I did a little research and found a bunch of great pictures of the Santa Ana Drag Strip. Apparently, C.J. "Pappy" Hart, established the Santa Ana Drag Strip on an unused runway at the Orange County (now John Wayne) Airport. Click on the picture below to see the pictures, and some video of the the old races.

After I found the sign, I walked through the building and I was almost killed by a swarm of killer bees! Well, not really, they just kind of sat there. But they were still really scary!

I finished my inspection and I was able to channel my 'fat kid in the outfield during a little league game' when I saw this butterfly sitting still for me....
