The California Raisins thoroughly explored a musical avenue under Priority Records. Four studio albums were released through 1987 to 1988, and their signature song, “I Heard It Through the Grapevine,” landed on the Billboard Hot 100. However, the Raisins would continue to make their strongest impression through animated endeavors.
During the 2006 Academy Awards, Tom Hanks played in a sketch about acceptance speeches that ran on too long. In his comedic lengthy speech, he thanked Hooch In Tom’s Screen Test for Toy Story. They took a line from this film which was Woody telling a Dog (Not Seen) not to eat Eben’s Car from Tin Toy and instead of doing what Turner did he dropped down to his knees and was pounding the ground saying Oh You Stupid Dog.
A real-life Nevada District Court judge for more than eight years and a professional boxing referee with more than 100 championship fights under his belt, Mills Lane was supremely cut out for his TV role when the series premiered in August 1998. The court show was taped at WPIX-TV in New York. The court show was in many respects a typical example of its genre, with Lane presiding over small-claims cases for which a $3000 jurisdictional limit had been imposed. What set Judge Mills Lane apart from the rest of the courtroom shows, however, was Mills Lane himself: Although he claimed not be as “strict” as rival TV jurist Judith Sheindlin, he was nonetheless as tough and sassy as they come, sometimes even fierce and frightening presence. This was especially to home viewers, particularly at points when the camera would zoom in on the Maximum Mills mug as Lane chewed out litigants. He started out each case with his famous locution: “Let’s get it on.” Reportedly, whenever Lane began shaking his gavel at a plaintiff or defendant, you could be sure all “hell" was going to break loose. On more than one occasion, the bailiff would be forced to clear the courtroom in the roughneck manner of a nightclub bouncer. Lane would sometimes let loose with so rapid verbal barrage that no one knew what he was talking about but they knew he was mad. Ratings for Judge Mills Lane were never anything to brag about however.
Another question asked by CBS news reporter Jeff Glor was “What else are you reading right now?”. He replied, I’m reading “Einstein his life and universe” by Walter Isaacson. Nonetheless there was another question by Glor. He asked “what inspired you to write the book?” And when Nicholas Sparks replied he said,” when people really begin to second-guess the choices they’d made in the past.” Now when I read the book I can tell how he used this because Amanda is faced with choosing over her husband,Frank or her long lost love,Dawson. And for Amanda she struggles choosing this but in the end her mother brainwashes her into staying married to a drunk
Luckett currently (December 2011) stars as a cab driver at the end of a TV ad for the NSLC encouraging Nova Scotians not to drink and drive by saying “If you’ve had a few, your car has too”. The ad shows cars parked outside a party as drunk saying such phrases as “I love you man” and other drunken ramblings.
The rap also contained the word “hell”, which is offensive in North America where “hell” is considered a profane explicative, despite the game being rated E. “Hell” as an intensifier is not considered offensive in Great Britain (which is where Rare is located), but a remixed version of the “DK Rap” was considered necessary in Super Smash Bros. Melee as part of the Kongo Jungle stage, in which the word was replaced with “heck”.
During the tutorial of the game, David Cage instructs the player to move the thumb-stick slowly when opening a door, to maximize immersion, making it clear the prevalent use of thumb-sticks in the game was intended to increase immersion.
“Gypsy Road" was a No. 51 US hit for Cinderella in 1989, from their second album, Long Cold Winter, which was released almost a whole year before. The video was filmed in Valladolid (YUC, MEX) and the village of Dzitnup (Curator of Valladolid, the most beautiful cenotes) there filmed the “Baxal bull”. Pure East, as filmed in Chichen Itza, 40 min. Valladolid (Chichen Itza is now one of the wonders of the new world).
In the music video, Lionel is singing in front of 4 dancing supermodels with his shirt unbuttoned (although the top button was buttoned in the first scene then in the second scene it’s all unbuttoned).
Angel Grove is the fictional town in the Power Rangers universe, the setting for much of the action of the television seriesMighty Morphin Power Rangers and its immediate sequels. Angel Grove is presumably a fictional suburb of Los Angeles,California, however no specific location was ever mentioned. The population is 376,000 and the elevation is 241 ft. According to a computer trivia program it was established in 1775. In the second season three-part episode “Return of the Green Ranger”, when the Rangers went back in time to colonial Angel Grove, it was apparently established by the British rather than the Spanish who colonized the rest of California. Whether this is simply an inaccuracy or the establishment of some sort of alternate historical timeline has not been revealed.
The opening line of the chorus states “I never had to knock on wood.” This may mean “I never had to…(knock on wood)” referring to something that the singer has never had to do (i.e. face a huge crisis) and utilizing the superstitious phrase “knock on wood” — said in the hopes that a good thing will continue to occur after it has been acknowledged. Alternatively, it may simply be a statement he has not had to “knock on wood” for good luck, in the face of a challenge.
Following the former interpretation of the first line, the mid-chorus lyrics, “It makes me wonder if I never had to knock on wood” are more easily understood with the insertion of ellipsis and other punctuation, i.e. “it makes me wonder if I…? Never had to… (knock on wood).”
She later employed an assistant to join the household, which he described as “a little bit of prison and a lot of theatre”. One of his jobs was to look after her beloved Persian cats. Over the years she acquired 17 of them; they shared her bed and, at mealtimes, were allowed to roam the dining-table selecting tasty morsels - and woe betide the guest who complained.
It has been said about her that she is the only artist to paint women without apology.
A strict disciplinarian, Skinner has an uptight, militaristic attitude that stems from a combination of being trapped in a swimming pool full of earthworms for the whole weekend and his years in the United States Army as a Green Beret, which included service in the Vietnam War, in which he was captured by the Viet Cong and was held as a war prisoner for eighteen months.

Like almost all 1980s Filmation cartoons, each episode closes with Skelevision (sometimes accompanied by Belfrey) explaining a particular lesson that can be learned from the events that went on during the episode. From time to time, Jake, Eddie Jr or another good character would talk with Skelevison about the lesson. Also some versions would not have Skelevision.
Popular forms of International Beer Day Events include: Tapping of new or rare beers, all-day happy hours, beer flights, trivia nights, binge drinking and other games (such as beer pong), beer/food pairings and beer gear giveaways.
After saying that he never wants to see a soccer ball again, Gus kicks the soccer ball a long distance. Andy tries it with him and he says, “Oyage!” and Gus kicks the ball. [Note: there is fierce debate in the Gus fan community re the spelling of “Oyage.” Some spell it “Oyatch!,” while others give it a more Yugoslavian-sounding “Ojigdz!”]
“On “Hotel California,” you sing: “So I called up the captain / ‘Please bring me my wine’ / He said, ‘We haven’t had that spirit here since 1969.’” I realize I’m probably not the first to bring this to your attention, but wine isn’t a spirit. Wine is fermented; spirits are distilled. Do you regret that lyric?”
“Thanks for the tutorial and, no, you’re not the first to bring this to my attention—and you’re not the first to completely misinterpret the lyric and miss the metaphor. Believe me, I’ve consumed enough alcoholic beverages in my time to know how they are made and what the proper nomenclature is. But that line in the song has little or nothing to do with alcoholic beverages. It’s a sociopolitical statement. My only regret would be having to explain it in detail to you, which would defeat the purpose of using literary devices in songwriting and lower the discussion to some silly and irrelevant argument about chemical processes.
Many mechanics and even Zastava factory workers agree that the “best” Yugos ever built were built between 1988 and early 1991. Quality control was good, high standards were set in terms of plastic quality, seat cloth, and “well screwed together” interior.
