I used to keep pet rats but became very sensitive (i.e. allergies) to their bedding. :(
Hear hear, although I think music licensing might be what’s hindering its streaming availability.
Dark Shadows had been available to stream on one of the service (I don’t remember if it was Netflix or Hulu Plus), but apparently the service lost the rights. I also tend to wonder if securing music rights has something to do with the unavailability of several programmes. I’ll also put in a word for Parker Lewis Can’t Lose (although now, nearly 25 (!) years after it first aired, it’s even more dated than other teen comedies of that era). The pilot — in really cruddy quality form — was on YouTube, and several years ago Shout Factory! released DVDs of the 1st and 2nd seasons (but not the crappy third season). So yeah, it would be nice to stream it.
Clancy Brown was also on Sleepy Hollow (and may still appear when Abbie is having flashbacks). Bill Fagerbakke is probably best remembered for his work in the miniseries based on Stephen King’s The Stand (“M-O-O-N! That spells Patrick!”). He was also in a sitcom with Craig T. Nelson about a small-time college football coach, I want to say this was about 25 years ago. OMG 1990 was 25 years ago. This just hit me.
People take their marching bands seriously. Google what happened at the University of Oklahoma this past fall with its marching band, the Pride of Oklahoma.
Thank you for the cat option. I am not allowed to have a dog where I live. Even so, it would have been hard to choose, as I love all cats and dogs.
#22 so was this inspired by El Greco or something? It has weird colouring, and it’s like she’s very unusually tall (I have read in past about El Greco is that as he got older, the figures in his paintings appeared to get taller and taller).
Hard to argue with this list but I’d argue that #133 (hello, George Takei!) and #82 should have been ranked a little higher.
I purchased my first computer in 1995 (FWIW, it was a Macintosh Performa) and the one thing I had to have with it was the Simpsons screensaver set from After Dark/Berkeley Systems, who created the flying toasters. Now, if I’m the only one who remembers the flying toaster screen savers then I must be very, very, very old. Will add: The 1995 version of the Simpsons screensaver set included one that “wrote” every phrase Bart wrote on the chalkboard starting with the first episode, an interactive trivia game, a tutorial for drawing the Simpsons characters, and one where Itchy and Scratchy would jump in and out of your desktop folders and mutilate each other. Good times.
