    Did someone "take" that idea from you?

    Yes, that happens to me a lot.

    Like so many years ago, I had an entire movie come to me in a dream, and then a few years later, that movie THE ADJUSTMENT BUREAU came out, and it was pretty similar to the movie I saw in my dream in terms of a supernatural agency controling individual people's fate and destiny. Only, in my version, the supernatural agency was composed of sprite-like creatures that would have been puppets (not cutesy puppets, more like Creature Shop-like puppets) who are dispatched out to individual people to help them get their lives back on track when they feel as though life has become too much for them to handle. I remember the lead was Brendan Frazer (back when he was a thing), and the two sprites dispatched to him were rookies who didn't get along, because one was rulesy and by-the-book, and the other prefered to go by instinct and intuition, and the two clowns kinda just make matters worse for Brendan's life.

    Well to be fair no. But yeah. I was just trying to put an example in post. :p

    Oh wow.... That sounds pretty creepy.

    But yeah, this is why when something pops in mind and I know it's something I can do, I try to get it done asap before it's too late.

    Like, someone could have easily done my idea of the Mst3k/Twice Upon a Time mashup, or my Mst3k/Naruto mashup (interestingly enough though, the"abridged" series from Team Four Star actually used the "Master Ninja Theme song" song from 322 - Master Ninja I for the intro; it gets annoying though when those stupid weaboos think "Omg, that's such a great original song from TFS!" When they don't know where it actually came from). I can literally say this is me when I see comments like that.

    Medium well with a good sear on the outside. To make it more tender, when you throw it on the grill, let a couple pats of butter melt down.
    No matter how you like it done, you only need to flip it once.
    And never never NEVER take a spatula (or tongs) and press down.
    That squeezes all the juice out and nothing worse than a tough dry steak.

    Porterhouse is my favorite. Has the big T-bone. And in the middle is where filet mignon comes from.

    I'm partial to a good sirloin myself. My folks love ribeyes, but they're too fatty and chewy for my taste.

    Not to divert the conversation but for some reason, all this talk of steaks reminds me of those savage Gordon Ramsay memes where he criticizes food:
    "This beef is so RAW...that I can still hear it mooing!"
    "This fish is so RAW...that it's still trying to find Nemo!"
    "Why did the chicken cross the road? Because you didn't ******* cook it right!"

    It's so entertaining to see Gordon flipping out on the adult contestants on MasterChef and Hells Kitchen, but on MC Jr he shows his softer side without lowering his standards. Anyone else noticed this?

    Well, I mean, they're kids. They're learning, and it would be horrible for Ramsay to just lose his cool with them. The other shows are adults who should know what they're doing.

    Totally agree. And that's what I love about Gordon Ramsay. He knows his contestants (young or old) so well that he knows exactly how to talk to them in any situation, whether they do well or royally screw things up. Plus with the PC culture we live in, Ramsay would get sued or his shows would get dropped from the network if he cursed out a kid.

    I dont understand why everyone thinks Ramsay would be mean to people for the fun of it. He's not. He's actually a very nice and understanding guy. Even if you watch kitchen nightmares, he shows a lot of compassion. Where he doesnt show compassion is when he's dealing with adults who are full of themselves and not willing to admit they're wrong.

    Exactly, I mean, the adults cooking the food are absolutely clueless and have no clue what they're doing. And it's funny how in every episode, they're like "Help us Chef Ramsay, you're our last hope :( " but as soon as the critisim comes out, "How could he be so cruel?! We do such a good job here!"

    That one probably gets stuck in my head the most, and I think it's mostly because of the refrain, "Windmill, windmill for the land, turn forever hand in hand," considering I just like windmills, lol.

    But I did also sort of recently rediscover the video for "On Melancholy Hill," and there's just something so fascinating about a soothing and upbeat song set to the visuals of fighter planes, a sinking ocean liner, and silly-looking jellyfish being mutilated in the propellers of a submarine.

    So Snowth and Noodle are from the town of Moodle, and they have a tiny poodle . . . would I be correct in assuming that poodle's name is Schmoodle? And I bet they just love Schmoodle oodles-n-oodles! And I guess there's an evil villain known as Zoodle, who's always breaking into banks to rob large sums of boodle!

    After seeing this clip of Jim Jordan on CHICO AND THE MAN, I suddenly have my own head canon regarding Albatross Air in THE RESCUERS and THE RESCUERS DOWN UNDER. . . .



    Assuming Albatross Air has higher-ups, I'm thinking that Orville's age was becoming a safety concern not just for the passengers, but for himself (we see in THE RESCUERS Orville isn't in the best of shape) and was probably pressured into retiring (against his volition) and placing his slacker younger brother Wilbur in charge of their hangar instead.

    Okay, so, I wasn't sure exactly where to put this but, does it bother anyone else that whenever someone does a medley of Sesame Street songs they always do the same five over and over (the theme, C is For Cookie, I Love Trash, People in Your Neighborhood, Rubber Duckie). And when someone does an individual cover it's almost always I Don't Want To Live On The Moon. I mean, I know those are the most famous, but it's not original anymore, and the show has much better songs than those that are just waiting to be covered.
