      I watched a little bit of both funerals on TV. Aretha & McCain's I mean.

       

      Aretha's grandchildren were quite eloquent & thoughtful. I like Al Sharpton's remarks as well.

       

      Man, I miss President Obama. That guy has a way with words that just uplifts you, makes you smile, & his eulogies are always worth listening to.

       

      It's too bad that Franklin & McCain are gone now. I had tremendous respect for both of them.

       

      You worried me for a second there JPPT. Wait, the other half of Garfunkel died? Ah man. Oops, wrong dude. My bad. LOL!

      I just remember Radar. Whatever you needed in Korea that was impossible to get, Radar would get his hands on it. 

       

      And those bubble helicopters of course.

      JPPT1974

      I never understood the popularity of "Friends" myself. I still have no idea why that show was such a smash either. I know. We all have different tastes.

  5. Question #28...What did Jim Jones in Jonestown gave his followers when in 1977 to sacrifice themselves not knowing themselves they were tricked in his cult?!

    1. TheRustonRifle#7

      TheRustonRifle#7

      Yes, it was Cyanide....it also coined the term, "Drinking the Kool Aide" when refering to someone believing deception.

    2. JPPT1974

      JPPT1974

      Good one Ruston Rifle. Really what the guy did was so sick and evil! Misleading people there and tragic end!:(

    3. southwest1

      southwest1

      Yep, that guy was seriously messed up indeed.

       

      Then again, sometimes, I think StarBucks fanatics are cult like too. I can't believe what people will pay for a styrofoam cup with coffee & cream in it, but I digress...

    3. southwest1

      southwest1

      I didn't watch this show as enthusiastically as some fans did at the zenith of it's popularity, but I will acknowledge it was a well written TV series & comedian Larry David is a genius. 

       

      Jerry Seinfeld is quite clever too. 

  10. Question #23...Song goes like this...fill in the title..."Honey Honey, You are my Candy Girl, And You got me wanting you?" It was on a cartoon show!

      Hard to believe Avatar or as I call it "Smurfs Who Fight Back" made so much money at the box office isn't it?

    3. southwest1

      I just remember the sound the board made prior to a contestant stopping on that game. It was a very odd game IMO not really built for TV longevity. 

  14. Question #19...On the original "Gong Show" who was the name of the stage hand who came out and danced on a lot of the shows at the end and had music written for him when he did that and the audience and judges threw out stuff when he dance?!

    1. JPPT1974

      JPPT1974

      Peter Jennings

      Tom Brokaw

      Dan Rather

    2. alawai

      • Thanks JP

      I never watched Peter Jennings much, but I know Dan Rather well. I saw all his Vietnam coverage in the field stuff. Mike Wallace was really good too. I remember Tom Brokaw as well. But Tom wasn't half as good as Dan & Mike were. Not even close. 

       

      I took a military history course in graduate school & we covered journalism in wartime. I have so much respect for Cronkite, Wallace, & Rather. Those guys were through man & they refuse to be intimidated by any administration in power. They supplied the public with tangible information with no filter. And they were just as tenacious in their youth as they evolved into elder media icons too. 

  19. Question #14...What is the Disco Place in 1970's that was a must go to in NY and it was based on a movie with Mike Myers and Ryan Philippe?!

    1. JPPT1974

      JPPT1974

      Studio 54 my friend indeed. As really heard it was something else. Was born in 1974 but i was a bit before my time.

    2. alawai

      alawai

      Same as Car 54.

      Dilly Dilly, you are really good at this question & answer thing. You should go on a game show & rake in the dough man.

  21. Quiz #12....What is Snoopy's Alter Ego?

    1. JPPT1974

      JPPT1974

      It is Joe Cool!

    2. alawai

      alawai

      Didn’t Snoopy have several alter egos?  WWI Ace against the Red Baron, also a business executive/lawyer type with a briefcase.  Think there were couple more.  Good trivia JP!  Love it.

    3. JPPT1974

      JPPT1974

      Yeah he sure did have a lot of egos but Joe Cool was the most!

  22. Quiz #11....For football fans...what year did Monday Night Football started in?!

      Good one JP and RR must be a good student

    3. southwest1

      Just out of curiosity, did Woodstock ever talk or say anything? He was a strong silent type if I remember correctly. 

  24. Quiz #9....Name this game show where it had contestants pitting against each other to test their knowledge in tunes?!

    1. Nadine

      Nadine

      name that tune

    2. JPPT1974

      JPPT1974

      Very good Nadine. Loved that show as a kid!

    3. southwest1

      southwest1

      I remember that show. I'd do alright on a music based program. Not singing. Just recalling verses or stanzas etc. 

       

      It's been proven that music sticks in a person's brain extremely well. If you memorize something to music, you'll never forget it. 

  25. Quiz #8....What does S.V.U. stand for in the Law and Order show?!

    1. NFLfan

      NFLfan

      Special Victims Unit?? It is a wild guess. I have not watched Law and Order in a few years. 

    2. southwest1

      southwest1

      I watch SVU regularly. A show with dark tones exceptionally well written. I've watched it from it's inception & I appreciate the sophistication of it's scripts. Not a fan of Rap/Hip Hop, but I respect Ice T as an actor. He's very believable on screen. 

       

      SVU is the best show D**k Wolf has ever produced IMO & I will checkout his new show "FBI" on CBS this Fall too.
