    Songs That Make You Laugh; Songs That Make You Cry

    I agree about both of those songs. I was actually listening to If You Wanna Be Happy the other day, and I was thinking, this is so offensive, but it's so catchy. "Yeah, she's ugly, but she sure can cook!"

    From Across The Pond: Royal Weddings and Scandals

    I don't think we need to qualify "the family Meghan never had" by saying that her mother is a good mother. I don't think it's a slam on her to make this statement. If you've only ever had one decent family member, you've never had 10 decent family members; therefore a large decent family would be the [extended] family you never had. Even the best mother can't be an uncle and a cousin and a sibling.

    Commercials That Annoy, Irritate or Outright Enrage

    There's this Revlon (?) commercial at the beginning of which Eva Longoria very slowly and clearly pronounces "hyaluronic" so that we know it has five syllables. If they were going to go out of their way to do that so prominently, then they probably should have given the memo to the voiceover person, because she pronounces it with four syllables. I don't detect the slightest bit of that extra syllable.
  4. Are you sure it isn't "hassle free deposits"?

    S1.E12: Vietnam

    I'm pretty sure there's been a 360 view of that room. Usually we see the room as we face the bed, but I'm pretty sure in the scene mentioned above when Joey climbed in the window, the camera was between the two beds, facing the wall. I don't recall seeing another bed there, not to mention I doubt Joey would sneak in Frank's window.

    I hate when the people are like "I'm from blah blah." No, you are from Rhode Island. Your great great great great grandparents are from blah blah.

    S01.E11: We Continue to Truck

    Well and as if he's not going to say anything to the kids directly once Darlene and Dan left.

    Class, Gender, Race, etc. in Commercials

    I'm afraid I don't know what you're getting at. For women who don't want strange men to follow them down the street, or catcall them, etc., this is literally every area of the country. Men do creepy shit in nice neighborhoods. A perfectly normal, nice neighborhood was depicted in the commercial to illustrate that fact.

    Commercials That Got Us Misty, Choked Us Up Or Made Us Cry

    I was thinking the same thing, and then I was thinking, "I don't care because this is the cutest thing I've ever seen."

    The Sounds of Our Lives (formerly General Music Discussion)

    Those #1 on your birthday lists... The years when I was most into music are the years I don't recognize the songs. I was totally listening to other stuff at the time.

    S01.E09: Rage Against the Machine

    Unless it was a new vending machine on the route, if DJ were checking that they were bolted down himself, he would have noticed before that this one wasn't.

    I wouldn't necessarily go so far as to say he thought it meant she wanted to get with him. But he certainly clearly thought it was worth it to go after her. The thing that gets me is that you actually don't need to hit on every single attractive person you encounter. Just letting the pretty lady walk down the street unbothered is a thing that you can do. Deposit dat ass in the ol' spank bank. Plenty of people don't like it if their companions eat off their plates without asking. So decent people, knowing that it is potentially unwelcome, don't just assume others won't mind them taking food off their plate, and instead keep to their own meals. Likewise, if you know that a number of people don't want to be followed down the street by strangers, even only five paces (for any reason other than something they dropped being returned to them), the decent thing to do is to go ahead and not do it. Otherwise the thought process is basically, "This woman/man might not like this but I'm going to go ahead and follow them because my own desire to fornicate is more important, and if I make them feel unsafe, so be it." There are other fish in the sea. There is no reason that you need to pursue this person right here, right now. Which I like to think the other guy in the commercial explained to him.

    Yet women receive offensive treatment on a regular basis. With regard to the ad, I think you guys are talking about the woman walking down the street and the white guy turns to go after her and then a black guy stops him? If I were that woman, here is what I would find scary: 1) That guy was about to follow her down the street. It's not like they happened to be at the corner waiting for the signal to change and he struck up a conversation. He was planning to follow her. That would make me feel like prey. 2) The look on his damn face. He looked at her the way I look at my favorite dessert. (I'm not saying people can't check each other out. But you don't have to go full on humina-humina boi-oi-oi-oing with the eyes.)
