The work week has begun. And, it’s already 20% done! Yay!

It’s Monday, but it’s night. That makes it Monday night. Which means…

Monday Night Open Thread!

You pick the topics, you control the direction of the conversation.

Sunday Night Open Thread

I used to go to the movies a lot. I don’t know what it is, but I just enjoyed the whole experience. I even got paid to go to the movies a few times. That was awesome, even if the movies weren’t.

I haven’t been to the movies a lot in recent years. Mostly, it’s been to take a grandchild or two to see a film. But just me going to a movie, either by myself or with a special someone? It’s been quite a while.

I wonder why that is.

[The YouTube]

I find I stay at home and not go to the movies. Kinda like what you’re doing right now. And, as long as you’re not at a movie, why don’t you help with our own entertainment. Like Sunday Night Open Thread. Pick a topic — or more than one topic, doesn’t matter — and let’s make our own fun.

We didn’t forget, Frank

Cake provided by Les at Nuking Politics

Just a note to Frank J.

No, we didn’t forget. We remembered your birthday. What we didn’t do was write something ahead of time.

You see, Harvey tasks me to do these things. I need to earn my paycheck somehow, and this is as good a way as any. Only, well, this morning, before breakfast, when I sat down at the computer to write up a birthday post, things started happening.

One of the ladies from the church was having a Comcast service call on a Sunday Morning. She missed church. I missed church — though I did get to see some of the service on their YouTube feed. (Baptists got The YouTube!)

Anyway, I spend the day waiting on Comcast at one of the ladies from the church’s house. That meant I didn’t write a birthday post when I planned.

So, for your birthday, I helped make an old lady happy. That counts for something, right?

What I want to know — this isn’t for Frank, but for the readers out there — is what did you do for Frank’s birthday?

Oh, and happy birthday, Frank.

Saturday Night Open Thread

When I was a teen, parents were horrified if their children wanted to see KISS in concert.

In 1997, I took my ten-year-old son to see KISS in concert.

I suppose that makes me a bad parent.

Oh, somebody (not me) happened to film that Columbus, GA show and post it online. Really.

If you want to Rock N Roll All Nite, that’s fine. Saturday is a good time for that. It’s also a good time for Saturday Night Open Thread. You pick the topics. You control the conversation.

Friday Night Open Thread

I’m babysitting Saturday. My youngest grandson will spend the whole day with Papa. I’m looking forward to it.

He’s not quite two years old yet, so we won’t be spending the day fishing or anything like that. We will find some fun things to do, though.

[The YouTube]

Anyway, that’s tomorrow. Tonight, it’s up to you to pick the activities. Tell a joke. Share an interesting tidbit. Whatever you like. It’s Friday Night Open Thread.

[Bob Gorrell]

I really don’t have a problem with the idea of sources outside of official channels. However, because of their record over the years, I don’t trust the news media.

Thursday Night Open Thread

What in tarnation are those symbols called that are used to replace letters in swear words?

You know what I’m talking about. Where someone writes something like d@*# or s#!& or other such.

Yeah, those have a name, and you can watch this video is you want to know what it is. Or what a “tarnation” is.

[The YouTube]

Now, it’s your turn. You pick the topics. Or tell a joke. Or share wisdom. Whatever. Just no really bad language, okay? Use your grawlixes if you must.

Tuesday Night Open Thread

I’ve been watching the unriffed versions of movies that appeared on Mystery Science Theater 3000. That’s a tough project.

What’s a tougher project is what Shout Factory is trying to do in regards to releasing the remaining MST3K episodes. There are only 13 or 14 episodes that have never been released (14 never on DVD, with 1 previously VHS-only).

SHAMELESS PLUG ALERT

Yeah, I wrote more about it over at my little blog.

For now, it’s your challenge. Come up with something funny, clever, interesting, or, heck, just plain lame. It’s your turn, after all. It’s Tuesday Night Open Thread.

Cartoon of the Day – Blinded


[Michael Ramirez]

Even with everything that’s gone on, been allowed by political correctness, it’s a shame that many citizens of the U.K. aren’t willing to see the problem.

That goes for those in the U.S. too.
