More people should know more about Robert Johnson.
I took a class in college called Rock 'n' Roll from the Beginning. The Robert Johnson "Complete Recordings" set was required listening.

Re: Learned League 84

I had the same dilemma. I knew the name from recent movies, but I was puzzled by the "industry", because my first inclination was "cinematography ". That felt like a misfit, so I ended up answering "film photography", and that was accepted. It helps being in Los Angeles, where "The Industry" is bas...

Re: Thursday, February 13, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I have seen zero total episodes of those TV shows. I have seen every episode of "Fargo" ($600), "Riverdale" ($800), and "Westworld" ($1,000). I have seen every episode of the current incarnation of "Doctor Who" ($400), i.e., since it returned in 2005. I have seen zero episodes of "This Is Us" ($200).

Re: Reretaken Down

This makes me curious if there's ever been a film for which that distinction made a difference. It's possible to dream up scenarios of course. A rap-related movie premieres on New Year's Eve in Compton. Beverly Hills Cop [X] does the same in its eponymous city. The movie reuniting the cast of The B...

Guess I'm the only one here who's willing to admit to watching "Mike Tyson Mysteries" on Adult Swim. One of the characters in that cartoon is the ghost of the Marquess of Queensberry. (The series is a parody of Hanna-Barbera's entire 1970s animated output, so he's basically its version of The Funky ...

I'm still trying to figure out how Hawaii has Interstates.
"Interstate" is a brand name, not a literal description.

Useless trivia question. I-10 intersects every x5 trunk except for 1. Which one? I-85, which only gets as far south as Montgomery, Alabama. (I've been to the I-65/I-85 interchange, where I-85 ends. I've also been to all of I-10's interchanges with I-x5s except for I-25 in Las Cruces, New Mexico.)

Re: ABC7 Jeopardy airing at 2:07A

Considering they sent the wrong copy of the episode that aired nationally a few weeks ago (remember the Israel/Palestine controversy?), I'm actually a little bit surprised that oopsies don't happen more often.... Those two situations aren't really comparable -- the first one was an error as part of...

For FJ!, I said American Samoa, thinking I remembered that they'd changed from right-hand to left-hand drive in the not-too-distant past.

Turns out it was actually the independent nation of Samoa (which made the switch in 2009).

Wonderfalls! I'd been looking for somewhere to watch that, and never found anywhere. I had only seen the first episode and it seemed so promising that I still want to see the rest of them. It was released on DVD (I know because I own it), so I wouldn't be surprised if you can check it out of a loca...

I thought with a name like "DNA Makes News," it was going to be a current events category, not about something from 1993.
