3. It was a SNL thing..

Loooong time ago, when Ron Howard hosted SNL, Eddie Murphy kept calling him "Little Opie Cunningham."

8. Night shift 1982. "You made a movie about pimps and you cast two white guys...

I don't know if I should hug you or slap you"
- Eddie Murphy

Something like that.

Glad you caught the reference.

29. Gaaa! You did it again. La la la not listening




P.S. My mother grew up in the same town as Meredith Wilson. In later years, she dragged us kids to any performance of The Music Man that came our way. The soundtrack LP was worn out long before we brothers melted what was left of it over a backyard fire.

P.P.S I'm still in love with Shirley Jones.

upon reading that unmitigated BS.

11. Those in the GOP who claim to be "sickened" over his comments are sick about their own aspirations

The idea that any of this should come as a surprise to anyone who knows Trump is ridiculous.

15. This Is Why I Don't Do Twitter

I read things that people tweeted and they are awful. Really, really awful.

My fellow DUers, Ron Howard has done a lot of stuff since Happy Days and the Andy Griffith Show. He's one of the best directors and producers there ever was! Apollo 13! A Beautiful Mind! Arrested Development!

16. Of course he's done great things since then, but that's when I got my crush.

So what?

What tweeted thing here is awful? Howard's tweet is great and he's taking heat for it, too.

35. making flippy flop



great '80's song just for t-rump:

Nothing can come between us
Nothing gets you down
Nothing strikes your fancy
Nothing turns you on
Somebody is waiting in the hallway
Somebody is falling down the stairs
Set someone free, break someone's heart
Stand up help us out

Ev'rything is divided
Nothing is complete
Ev'rything looks impressive
Do not be deceived
You don't have to wait for more instructions
No one makes a monkey out of me
We lie on our backs, feet in the air
Rest and relaxation, rocket to my brain

Snap into position
Bounce till you ache
Step out of line
And you end up in jail
Bring me a doctor
I have a hole in my head
But they are just people
And I'm not afraid
Doctor Doctor
We have nothing in our pockets
We continue
But we have nothing left to offer
Faces pressed against the window
Hey! they are just my friends
Check this out don't be slick
Break our backs it goes like this . . .

We are born without eyesight
We are born without sin
And our mama protects us
From the cold and the rain
We're in no hurry
sugar and spice
We sing in the darkness
We open our eyes (open up)

I can't believe it
And people are strange
Our president's crazy
Did you hear what he said
Business and pleasure
Lie right to your face
Divide it in sections
And then give it away

There are no big secrets
Don't believe what you read
We have great big bodies
We got great big heads
Run-a-run-a-run it all together
Check it out - still don't make no sense
Makin' flippy floppy
Tryin to do my best
Lock the door
We kill the beast
Kill it!
