Always been Meatloaf's biggest fan. Belted out Bat Out of Hell non-stop from my car stereo BITD. Wore out numerous tapes of that. Still play loads of Meatloaf when I'm in the workshop at weekends. Played him all day at work today.

Think this weekend is going to be an All-Meatloaf-Weekend.

  • Yeah, owning a MAME cab only leads to owning real ones. MAME just isn't good enough. It's a gateway drug.

Edit: I only just started watching Baskets over the past few days and I hate that I missed out on this fantastic performance by Louie. He was so damn good in this role!

Anyway...

I got a good laugh out of his presentation when he corrected us on the pronunciation.

He was wrong, but it was still funny.

No, I don't think so.

Yes because the guy that frikkin invented the format and thus gets to decide how it is pronounced holds up a can of the peanut butter in the photo and used all kinds of Jiff puns in the original article back in the day because he pronounces it the other way.   Quite frankly anyone that doesn't pronounce it like the peanut butter is actively being an ---uvula--- at this point.

He may have invented the term, but its pronunciation is up to the will of the people. And the people have spoken. ;)

I hope he didnít take it too seriously, but he missed the mark.  I am grateful to him for the format.

Gilbert Gottfried dies at 67 after a long illness.  :dizzy:

https://variety.com/2022/film/news/gilbert-gottfried-dead-dies-comedian-aladdin-1235231387/

I thought he was hilarious in the Comedy Central Roast of Rosanne. I was laughing really hard.
