Arizona born, raised, and educated (UofA). Exiled to the East (even worse the South)for career. Longing to return home.
I watched 15 minutes of one of the first Girls episodes. Couldn't take anymore than that. Can't stand Seinfeld. Modern Family is lame and I won't waste my time. I haven't seen a decent comedy show in years.
I'd love for someone to do something as good as All in the Family, but in spite of all the sex and violence allowed today they'd never get most of that stuff on the air.
Tom, Really? A little research will show why the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is missing great acts and highly influential musicians, and instead is full of second rate bands and folks who aren't actually Rock and Roll musicians. It's an industry schill, only interested in selling records and generating revenue from music they own or bands still under contract. It has nothing to do with music and everything to do with money.
I've never understood why Dick Dale hasn't made it, in spite of influencing greats such as Hendix and pushed the creation of Fender's high watt amps. Actually I do understand, there's no money to be made off his induction.
Tom a "left kind of guy", really? That's what I like about Arizona. Anyone to the left of Atilla the Hun is a 'lefty'. Actually even Atilla would be dumb-struck by how conservative Arizona's politicians can get. I have almost always found Tom to be balanced, haven't always agreed with him but that's not what being balanced is about.
Takes me back to the late 70s (or maybe early 80s, it's been a bit) when all the college sports teams were getting suspended and Tank Macnamara ran a series where some small college was going to have to play the Charlie Tuna Oceanographic Institute in the Rose Bowl. Makes you wish the NCAA still had some backbone and that things would have changed for the better. All this money has just made things worse and the NCAA is acting like a pusher to the schools.
