Lots of politically incorrect targets of humor and scatalogical references, but also some cleverly disguised social commentary mixed in. Don't know why, but he never fails to make me laugh big time.

These things are good for one thing and one thing only - enforcing Darwinian laws to help keep the human race at least as intelligent as a chimpanzee.

I love organic cotton fabric. Gaiam is one of my favorite places to shop.

Children eat the magnets, which stick together in their intestines. Some have died. Many have gone to the hospital in great pain.

People still use these things?

Believe it or not I had one of these in Australia and it is relatively safe to use. They make short work of hills. The safety comes from the fact that the blade does not move fast enough to make the mower hover more than a couple of inches off the ground - no higher than the lift on a regular lawnmower.

These things are being recalled all the time. Kids choke on the strings. Not for children under the age of nine.

The hot water heater of the future is here. I just wish it didn't cost ten grand.

Most "sticky yoga mats" are made with phthalates, which are terrible for the environment. Better go with a natural rubber mat or some other material.

She has lost some of her fame from Friends and isn't as much of  hit on the big screen, but she is still a well-liked and good-looking actress that can woo guys with just a wink.

This is my favorite mechanic. They have always taken good care of my vehicles. They are honest and fair. One time they did some work for me and I thought it was too low, so I asked whether he did my bill correctly or not. He said he had. They also took time to explain to me what was wrong and what they did to fix it. I expect to use them for a long time.

Raul Malo, the lead singer and songwriter for The Mavericks, has a great voice. Check out his wonderfully romantic solo 2006 album, "You're Only Lonely." Listen to a sample here of one of the songs, "Run to Me." Not a country album, but rather a hauntingly beautiful collection of songs, all but one of them slow and romantic. The man can sing! You'd never guess he started as a country singer, and the album shows his versatility. The Mavericks won a Grammy and the Country Music Association twice named it the Top Vocal Group. In the latter part of the '90s the band incorporated latin rhythms and became an eclectic mix of country, rockabilly, rock and roll, and salsa. In the 2000s, Raul Malo has had a successful parallel solo career.

I rate this as a 3.3. Has nice fruit on the first taste, but the finish is marred by the hotness of the 13.9% alcohol and excessive tannins. Tannins might mellow some with a couple of years more aging. The fruit tastes nicely sweet, though not jammy, but the tannin dissipates that taste on the finish. Probably wouldn't buy it again.

The Animals were at one time my favorite group and Eric Burdon my favorite rock/blues artist. I probably still have 4 or 5 of their LPs. Burdon had an amazing blues sense for a very young guy. My favorite songs included "See See Rider", "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood", "The Girl Can't Help It","Boom Boom", "Maudie", "What Am I Living For", "I Put a Spell on You", "Rock Me Baby", and "Mama Told Me Not to Come".

But unfortunately the original group disbanded. After the group's second incarnation as Eric Burdon and the New Animals, they lost my interest when Burdon shifted to psychedelia like "San Franciscan Nights", "Monterey", and"Sky Pilot". Ah well, nothing good lasts forever.

UPDATE: Consumer Reports' experts tasted ten of the Yellow Tail
varietals (see the 11/07 issue) and gave them a big thumbs up. Their
comment: "If you want a high-quality, inexpensive wine, grab a bottle
of Yellow Tail. Eight of its varietals were very good; two were good."
They state that Yellow Tail has become the No. 1 import in the U.S. by
dollar sales.

ORIGINAL COMMENT: Very good for a budget wine. 60% Shiraz / 40% Cabernet Sauvignon. The fruit is very forward, and the first few sips taste almost sweet because of it; however, the Cabernet shows up in the aftertaste, cutting the jamminess of the Shiraz somewhat. Tannin is very subdued. Full-bodied. Definitely a "New World" style.

ORIGINAL COMMENT: Very good for a $6-$10 wine ($5.50 at Trader Joe's). Big ripe up-front fruit and raspberry flavours, soft, not tannic, easy-drinking. Not complex, of course, but you wouldn't expect that from a wine of this price, yet not simple either. Makes a very good everyday wine. Great value for the price. Yellow Tail Shiraz continues to be one of my favorite budget wines.

Truly a schizophrenic wine. Although the initial taste reveals delicious forward fruit, excessive tannin and acid jumps in to overwhelm and ruin it. I wouldn't buy it again. The 2004 shouldn't be available much longer, since the 2005 is out, but this wine is blended to have a consistent taste from year to year, so don't expect much from the 2005 either.

Roger Moore's sole strength is his ability to smirk and act smug. He's so wooden he could pass for Pinocchio's brother.

Sorry, but driving under the influence is not a laughing matter, and I'm very surprised that anyone rated it more than a 1. Every day the newspaper chronicles the tragic deaths and injuries caused by driving under the influence. This offense deserves much more severe punishment than currently imposed. Although the current punishment is fairly severe, jail time should be mandatory for even first offenders. Remember, alcohol always makes you feel more confident of your abilities, and you don't realize the extent to which your judgment and driving ability is impaired. I know whereof I speak, since as a former prosecutor I tried many such cases, to the point where I could almost recite a toxicologist's testimony by heart. I rode two full night shifts a year with the Highway Patrol, so believe me when I tell you they are very determined impaired-driver hunters when the sun goes down. Take a cab--it's much cheaper in the long run, and the life you save may be yours or mine.

They're about as dangerous as they are convenient. Almost got hit two days ago by some young chick who ran a red light while blithely chatting on hers, paying more attention to her conversation than her driving. See my review here of talking on a cell phone in a movie. Also see my review here of illegalities and bad judgment for talking on a cell phone while driving.

Love this song--it's one of my favorites. First time I heard it I had to find out who sang it. Now I'm a Gary Jules fan. The song is haunting, with more than a touch of melancholy. Thanks for putting up the video version, numbah. If you haven't heard it, it's worth a listen, and numbah has made it easy for you to do so.

 Inspector Morse was one of my favorite series. A tragedy that John Thaw died before his time. Morse was a unique character. Though usually cranky, his softer side emerged over the episodes. The construction of his complex character was brilliant, revealing bits and pieces of his personality here and there. Morse was ultimately sympathetic and a bit tragic because of his loneliness, vulnerability (after repeated failures to find a relationship), intelligence, and exquisite taste in music and literature. He was a man usually steeled to the brutality and depravity of fellow humans, but his emotions eventually showed through the cracks of his gruff exterior. He was a man hardened to life by bitter disappointments in his past, hinted at but not revealed. Though my affection for the series was largely because of the Morse character and Thaw's portrayal, the plots were well conceived and engaging, the dialog well written, and the acting first rate.

My current favorite show. Blessed by good actors and good writers. The dialogue is well crafted, and there's a nice bit of occasional comedy thrown in to temper the drama. Can't say that it's realistic, but who cares? It's engaging and entertaining. It's hard to put my finger on why I like it so much. Perhaps because it's intelligent and has very good plot lines. Each character is different and believable, and each has his/her issues and demons to deal with.

The alternative country band The Mavericks became very popular in the '90s. Their mix of country and rock 'n' roll caught on in the early '90s, and in 1994 they had a platinum album with hits such as "What a Crying Shame," "O What a Thrill" and "There Goes My Heart." The Mavericks won a Grammy and the Country Music Association twice named it the Top Vocal Group. In the latter part of the '90s the band incorporated latin rhythms and became an eclectic mix of country, rockabilly, rock and roll, and salsa. Raul Malo, the lead singer, is one of the best voices in the business, and also a great songwriter. In the 2000s he has had a successful parallel solo career. If you get a chance, check out his wonderfully romantic solo 2006 album, You're Only Lonely;  you'd never guess he originally was a country singer.

It's an excellent idea, even if it didn't happen to be in the Constitution. The Constitution (as interpreted by the U.S. Supreme Court) mandates government neutrality toward religion. See my review of the subject here. This protects us from each other, like all of our rights under the Constitution, and most liberals favor Constitutional rights. But is this truly an idea typically associated only with liberals? Surely there must be conservatives out there who believe it's a good idea, though obviously not the evangelicals. Let's hear from some conservatives on this (but not on whether the Constitution separates church and state--that argument belongs with the reviews here).
