Off-Topic but important: The truth about my passion of Paramount cartoons and "Two Kitties" to explain it...

I have a confession to make.

When I was a kid, I didn't like the Paramount cartoons as much as you think, "Old MacDonald" was only interesting because I realized home video divisions of movie studios weren't the only ones to make Bouncing Ball sing-alongs, and without the recognizably discovery of the Paramount logo on the original titles, I would have thought the same thing Viacom does with their cartoon library. I was tired of listening to the "Short'nin' Bread" song from the cartoon of the same name. The tape broke and I watched a lot of Looney Tunes (or WB because many were also released as "Merrie Melodies"), on Cartoon Network. No DVNR. No color-saturation. Just a bunch of cartoon violence in the Golden Age.


There was a reason, and is a reason a wee bit similar to Lionsgate's unintrest in relasing the Paramount cartoons on video. They were too old and too obscure. The NTA logo was too creepy. I thought "Short'nin Bread" was advertising desserts or even cheese (which I thought the same when I first saw "Jasper and the Haunted House" with the racial slur billboard in the end I mistaken as a plug for a real brand of pie.).


This is the thing I felt when I returned a rental of "The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters", a documentary on the world record of the 1981 arcade game Donkey Kong.(not to be confused with the "King Kong" films), but more of a feeling that I felt when I saw the Jam Handy Rudolph short on a Republic tape. Only time will tell if I like it more.


I didn't recognize that Capser found a friend, or that Popeye beats up Bluto with a can of spinach in nearly every episode. I once didn't like Popeye because he ate spinach. Now I know that he means more than selling spinach, because Paramount only was advertising their movie studio in nearly all of their films.


I only found more appreciation of the Paramount cartoons when I got a PD tape from the library, years after my "Old MacDonald" tape broke.


I saw a PD tape print "A Tale of Two Kitties", with the "Merrily We Roll Along" theme silenced out, before seeing Paramount cartoons on PD tapes. That was my first WB cartoon.

In a nutshell, what I'm trying to say is that I sort of didn't like the Paramount cartoons at one point, but found it's fun to watch obscure stuff a lot. I will still post Paramount cartoons. I did not "cheat" on Paramount cartoons, I just didn't like 'em as much as I do now. But I also do like other studios' cartoons as well. I had a variety of cartoons when I was littler, but I like other cartoons today too.


Here's a restored print from Volume 5 of the Looney Tunes set of Clampett's A Tale of Two Kitties, which as I said before was my first WB cartoon, and is a parody of Abbot and Castello.

I tried downloading by dragging the music from the library onto the icon of my iPhone, but it didn't work so I synced one of my computers. I want to download my second computers music library as well, but I can't sync that one because I'll loose all the original music. Help?

Hi Everyone,

I just wanted to share this FDA warning about Reglan.

Since there is presently no known permanent cure for serious gastrointestinal distress, it
is not surprising that many patients seek out treatments to provide long-term relief.

According to package insert dosage instructions, Reglan was only intended to be taken
for up to three months. People who have taken this drug for longer than the three–month
prescribed period have sometimes developed a seriously debilitating condition known as
tardive dyskinesia.

Recently, the FDA has issued a public health warning to both patients
and physicians with the intention of avoiding additional instances of this devastating disorder.
No treatment is currently available to treat tardive dyskinesia symptoms. Many of these side
effects are irreversible and permanent.

For more information on Reglan and a list of tardive dyskinesia symptoms check out the

Hello. My wife and I bought our house about 6 months ago. It was a foreclosure and we were able to get a great deal on it. We also took advantage of the 8K tax credit so that definitely helped. We did an extensive remodeling job and now I want to refinance to cut the term to a 20 or 15 year loan. Does anyone know any good sites for mortgage information? Thanks!

Mike

Hi

"What about food?"

Although much simpler than the dietary law followed by Jews and the early Christians, the code which Muslims observe forbids the consumption of pig meat or any kind of intoxicating drink. The Prophet taught that 'your body has rights over you', and the consumption of wholesome food and the leading of a healthy lifestyle are seen as religious obligations.

The Prophet (SAW) said: 'Ask God for certainty [of faith] and well-being; for after certainty, no one is given any gift better than health!'

"What is the Quran about?"

The Quran, the last revealed Word of God, is the prime source of every Muslim's faith and practice. It deals with all the subjects which concern us as human beings: wisdom, doctrine, worship, and law, but its basic theme is the relationship between God and His creatures. At the same time it provides guidelines for a just society, proper human conduct and an equitable economic system.

Because an SSD is based on flash storage sooner than a conventional spinning disk serving dish, the Bonnie++ benchmarks do not determine the whole story. IOzone allows you to comprehend how the disk performs for a range of classify sizes and recording sizes. When this intelligence is shown graphically you can quick picture if there are areas where the disk underperforms.

Shown lower is the interpret conduct of IOzone on a isolated 3.5-inch 750GB Samsung SATA hard disk using the XFS filesystem. Take heed of that the disk performs better when reading smaller records, with the larger deliver assign to sizes forming a extent unmistakable highland in the abet of the graph.

My questions are: What amount can an agency legally charge you to let coverage holder out of his automobile insurance?
Just how much does your company charge when anyone chooses to cancel and how much pressure do you use to keep them?
What are some tips something like that we can say if our consumer has many months remaining on his active auto plan? Definitely, many of us are not going to hold back until his renewal comes due each time.

Do i have to get an auto insurance when i buy a used car? or else, they don't sell the car to a person who doesn't have an auto insurance? I currently have a lease car that will be returned this January next year. But i want to get a used car soon so that i can work on the car, but i won't be driving it around. The car will be in my garage until i return the lease car and get an auto insurance. I live in Philadelphia, PA
Any suggestion?

Most people are reluctant of having their friends, brothers or relatives to drive their cars for them because they are not sure if they could still claim insurance policies or if other people are covered by the policy. Who is insured to drive your vehicle? any help?
