What’s all this racket!?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:10pm Spinning Giant:

@sofaslim - my first car was a 74 Pontiac Grande Ville convertible - i used to fondly refer to it as a couch on wheels - still think of it that way - never should've got rid of that car - it was a gem! Nothing ive owned since even comes close...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:10pm Spinning Giant:

I once had 13 people in that thing with the top down and people sitting on the trunk with their feet on the back seat...

Yes but as someone observed - we remember Plan 9 forever while 10,000 merely mediocre films are utterly forgotten.

Yes being Mediocre is the worst
Avatar 🌮 1:27pm Mailman Tom:

Ed Wood's best movie was 1951's The Sun Was Setting, starring Phyllis Coates, who played Lois Lane in the first season of the Superman TV series
  1:30pm blt:

I'm mediocre
  🌮 Swag For Life Member 1:30pm Bruce S.:

Phyllis Coates was considered to strong for the show
Avatar 🌮 1:33pm Mailman Tom:

Phyllis Coates considered the Superman show beneath her talents, which is why she moved on to B movies, serials, and TV westerns!
  🌮 Swag For Life Member 1:34pm Bruce S.:

great career choice Phyllis

Afternoon, Rex and Fools! I might have accidentally learned something earlier this morning on Double Dip Recess -- hoping I can take that back off over here.

Dave Miss, Bruce S., medson, drr, DjLorraine, Rev Rab, Spinning Giant, and all the other Fools in Paradise: hi!

  🌮 Swag For Life Member 1:45pm Bruce S.:

This is cool! wooo Hooo
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:46pm Pedro in Arlington:

Just realized that Mork from Ork's initial appearance on Happy Days is just a shameless ripoff of The Great Gazoo. Of course, Robin Williams was kinda funny anyway.
  1:47pm davefromtoronto:

b movie actress? her eye acting in that gif alone merits an oscar!
  🌮 Swag For Life Member 1:49pm Bruce S.:

You ever notice that Robin Williams was always on,I've never seen a serious interview with him
  1:50pm phil.vas1:

A sense a cautionary tale coming on….
Avatar 1:50pm TheManWhoLaughs:

@Bruce...part of that was because Robin was always on cocaine. But he was always a joy to watch.
