    Never give in, never give up. January post shall never die. It fights to survive, it gasps for air and struggles to survive. What vital importance does it need to say? Does it want to talk about the Safety Dance?
    lol
    Nope.

    Spiderman2 rules? Nah (although, most of us know it's true). Hippies rock, free love and all that jazz. nyet.

    How about Vin Diesel is a sexy, sexy man? That's not it either. I think January post is back just to say Hi and welcome back to Orlando - Dale!

    "King Arthur" takes its place as one of the worst films of the year. I cannot wait to publish my Top and Bottom Ten lists in December.

    Don't ruin it for me Brandon...I wanna see before you judge!!!

    Me thinks that The Safety Dance DOES want to be spoken about!


    SING!!!


    We can dance if we want to,
    we can leave your friends behind
    cuz your friends don't dance and if they don't dance
    Well, they're no friends of mine!!!


    YAY!

    It's about time that this topic shot back up to the top once again.

    Oddly, I have something to post, a question if you will.

    I'm looking for a title and/or the performer(s) of a song. I'm sure it has been around for awhile, but I first heard it in the new film Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story. It is the song that goes with the car wash scene. As soon as they show the girls in the bikinis across the street, the song I am looking for starts. When I got home, I looked online, but there is no soundtrack for the movie listed on Amazon.com, nor is there a soundtrack listing on IMDB.com.

    Then, last night, my friend and I watched the epic Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen. Not only is the near-perfect song "Never Leave You," aka: "Uh Oh" by Lumidee, in it, but so is the song I'm looking for. Now, CoaTDQ does have a soundtrack, but out of the very few that Amazon.com allows you to listen to, this song is not one of them.

    The only lyrics I know, or think I know, go something like, "<something, something, something> is better than yours..." Does that ring any bells? Sounds as if a female, perhaps more than one, is singing it.

    I know, it's not much to go on, but someone might know it, and, again, it brings this topic to the top.

    ...why the Top 10 Lists is not at the top confounds me.

    I haven't seen either movie, but could it be "Milkshake"? Your lyric wasn't much to go on.

    ETA: You can listen to a clip here.

    So is it cool or sad that I immediately picked that song out of thin air with barely a clue to go on? ;)

    So I was wondering about this but didn't think it required a new thread...

    How many of you actually post on the forums at TOS? I opened my account like a thousand years ago and actually went on them yesterday. They're fun to read (multitude of topics) but they're just WAY too big. Seriously, if you miss a day, you miss like 30 posts or so in the same subject. Not to mention, if you haven't read a post from the beginning, you're completely screwed as sometimes they're over 500 pages long!!! I think I'll stick to small forums like ours for a while!

    Gotta love TF.N!

    Okay, so I'm on the computer making my rounds today. I've got the TV on (watching "The Simpsons"). It happens to be storming outside. No big deal. I've watched TV during a storm before. But then there was one particularly close lightning strike. The power didn't go out, but everything seemed to freeze for one second, including myself. When the world returned to normal everything was fine except for my TV. Now there's a big huge purple and green blotch in the center of my TV. I mean HUGE. Aiyeeee! Does anyone know how this can be fixed (or if)? Everyone looks like the Incredible Hulk on my TV now. :(

    Take your old television to the dump and throw it in the ton of trash already there. Or, if you want, take it to an outdoor firing range and shoot at it.

    Then, see how much you are willing to spend, and head to Circuit City, Best Buy, or any number of other places and purchase a new one.

    Seriously.

    Well, I've been looking for help on the ol' 'net here and I've stumbled across something about a degausser that will alter the magnet field of a tv. So I'm going to try to locate one of those. If not, I guess I'll start saving for a new TV. I'm gonna be watching it black and white for a while, though.

    Then again, maybe this is a sign from god to buy a HDTV . . . ;)

    Nevermind. I turned it off for a couple of hours and it miraculously repaired itself. Go figure.

    It's like Miss America, Miss Universe, and Miss USA, as well as Miss <insert state here>. It's been going on, well, forever. It's a "talent" contest. All the Miss Teens from all the 50 states and DC (making a total of 51) compete for the title of Miss Teen USA. Of course, it's just an excuse to make guys over 20 oogle over teenagers. It went on for two hours, so even if it was 9:40pm, you only missed forty minutes.

    I played the cornet in school. I tell everyone I played the trumpet because no one seems to know what a cornet is, but they are pretty much the same thing (cornet is slightly shorter). In fact, while Dictionary.com is hardly a site for actual answers, I don't feel like going to my Oxford English Dictionary right now, so this is what Dictionary.com came up with for "cornet":

    Music. A wind instrument of the trumpet class, having three valves operated by pistons.


    I see it says "trumpet class." So, a cornet *is* a trumpet then? Kind of like a Civic and Accord are both Nissans? If so, then what is a trumpet? It seems that "trumpet" would be the make and cornet would be the model. So, for those that say they DO play "trumpet," what are they actually playing? Scary! Dictionary.com says:


    Music. A soprano brass wind instrument consisting of a long metal tube looped once and ending in a flared bell, the modern type being equipped with three valves for producing variations in pitch.
    Something shaped or sounding like this instrument.


    But from the definition of cornet, it seems it, too, is a trumpet. Who knows.
