The whole reason why astronauts went to the moon was because public demand wanted them to go to find out for sure the moon was not made of cheese. Popular belief at the time. Imagine harvesting all of that cheese if the moon was really made of cheese. When the astronauts arrived they dug into the moon only to find dirt and rock. No cheese. But yet again they were not on the dark side of the moon.

Carmichael They still haven't figured out where the rock came from, it didn't dissapear again though, they studied it and found many times higher than average (magnesium?).

I'm surprised to find some decent songs on the top-40 now. Nothing I imagine you'd like much, RTD, but Lorde actually has character.

@Matt - Now that I see the pic, I recognize her from what I believe is a spinoff of iCarly, the thought of which makes me ill.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:41pm Matt from Springfield:

Stereolab sounds workable, GO FOR IT!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:41pm Ike:

Good point, Fleep.
  5:42pm P-9Ø:

@Carm: good call on Stereolab.
The Turtles will eternally appeal to kids
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:44pm Mike East:

and, no, her acting is terrible...par for nickelodeon. What's the deal with the laugh track after literally every two lines of dialogue?
  5:44pm P-9Ø:

Alvaro sounded like David Thomas from Pere Ubu for just a second there
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:46pm Carmichael:

When you have the time, google the Turtles' whiteboard review of their career, complete with arrows and circles. It was one of the funnier rock-related stories this side of Spinal Tap.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:46pm Matt from Springfield:

Oh yeah, and last week...I took the "Frankie Teardrop" Challenge!

That is a masterful classic, but OH GAWD the sing-whisper-SCREAMING!! That track leaves physical effects, even without infrasound!
  5:46pm P-9Ø:

Mike: Lets the kids know what's supposed to be funny. Don't you remember Get Smart or The Ropers? Same deal
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:47pm Matt from Springfield:

OTOH, those who haven't listened to the whole track should take their first listen under Challenge circumstances, to appreciate the true terror of the production :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:48pm Mike East:

@P90 - I remember those, but I don't remember the laugh track going off nearly as much as on these shows.

@P-9Ø: And on CBS sitcoms..let's the geezers know what the younger writers think that they think should be funny.

Oh - Carter Tuttl - no wonder likey...

Oh, and I gave Mammatus a big fat clicky star!

Who's remixing this? Pretty darn good!
  5:51pm P-9Ø:

Remember the Banana Splits? Really overdone laugh tracks, especially when the material was funny enought o stand on its own. Lance Link: Secret Chimp same deal
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:51pm Parq:

The flip side of nowadays is that there are some shows -- Parks and Rec comes to mind right off the bat -- that get along with no laugh track or studio audience at all. Kind of gratifying to those of us who remember when Tony Randall and Jack Klugman had to plead with ABC to let them do one episode that way.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:51pm Scott Williams:

They're remixing themselves
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:51pm Matt from Springfield:

"Raising Hope" did a true-to-life parody of a Dis/Nick style "kidcom"--they really did their research on that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:52pm Parq:

And it's understandable that we need to be told when the lines on these other shows are supposed to be funny, since virtually none of them actually is.
  5:53pm P-9Ø:

Amanda Bynes' original show on Nick kicked ass. What happened?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:53pm Parq:

Overall, too much toilet humor on "Hope" for my taste, but yes, they've done some very clever conceptual episodes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:54pm fleep:

The overcranked laugh tracks are a training technique. In conjunction with hypersugary breakfast cereals, young impressionable minds are brought into Disneyology and Disneyetics.
  5:54pm P-9Ø:

Yay! Verbal! my new #1
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:54pm Ike:

Sadly, @Parq, Parks & Rec (and Community) gets very dismal ratings and has somehow nonetheless survived anyway, perhaps due to demographics or the political power of Lorne Michaels within NBC, or more likely because NBC is pathetic and simply didn't have anything else. Great show, though it suffered severe growing pains. (Y'all should Netflix it, but skip straight to season 2!)
  5:55pm P-9Ø:

@fleep: Disneyetics! Please say I can steal that
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:56pm fleep:

@P-9Ø The 94 song countdown on this same album is also a winner.
Avatar 5:56pm northguineahills:

Thanks Scott!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:56pm Matt from Springfield:

I need just three inches of string, can they sell me a "stringlet" as well??

@fleep: You're right--what IS the difference between them? Disney is less secretive, but they'll still sue yo ass and stomp you into the dirt!
  5:56pm P-9Ø:

@fleep yesss
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:57pm Scott Williams:

this was fun today, thanks for hanging out everyone!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:57pm Ike:

Raising Hope, another good one withOUT a laugh track that has survived somehow on abysmal ratings, indicating the sad tastes of the American public at large.
  5:57pm P-9Ø:

I love how she notifies them that their orders for tape are being "taped"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:58pm Carmichael:

Jim Belushi and Tom Arnold constantly get shows. 'Nuff said.
  5:58pm P-9Ø:

Thanks, Mr. Williams
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:59pm Matt from Springfield:

Thanks for playing your stuff, Scott!
Sure was fun, thanks everybody, and have a great evening!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:59pm Carmichael:

And thanks, Scott!

Wow at "Verbal to Your Name." America! Love it.
