Oh, I thought this was another avatar memorial thing.

The day I log on and everyone has Shatner in their avatar I'll probably start sobbing.

Yeah, he passed on years ago. This is more of a tribute to the good folks of Boston (my signature explains the rest).
I considered Mr. Rogers to be a genuine force for good, and I have always felt that this world could be so much better if it had more people like Fred Rogers in it.

Or Leonard. Then we're both going to have a hell of a cry that day.

Who is Bob Ross?

Oh, I just saw Adam Baldwin at a convention and someone asked him some lameass question about the other unrelated Baldwins and he replied with, "Wikipedia, man.."

Bob Ross was a painter, back in the 70s and 80s, who you could find on public access television hosting a show called "The Joy of Painting." He was a very quiet, soft spoken, peaceful man, who used to speak of "happy little trees" as he painted. He was very talented, and used a method by which he could paint entire nature scenes in minutes.

You can see some of his work here:

Re: Bieber hopes Anne Frank would have been a fan

Back to Beiber:

This just in- Justin Beiber is an idiot.

Why do 'celebrities' think anyone cares about their opinions. Just sing to 13 year old girls and leave everyone else alone.

No, because most of the people who loved and listened to disco were black people and were also gay people. That's why.
Yeah, that's why people hated disco: because 'der coloreds' and 'der gayz' liked it, and not because it was preprogrammed, overplayed, pop crap that teenaged girls bought.

The Bee Gees were badass, and I'm not joking.

The Bee Gees were indeed badass. As for their involvement in the disco scene, it was accidental at best.

That ain't no jive talkin... The BeeGees were badazz

However speaking as someone who was a teenager in the late 70s and early 80s, After Saturday night fever right or wrong the Bee Gees were considered the standard for what constituted disco.

Accordingly trying to portray the popular perception of disco as being black music or gay music is misguided. By the time of the backlash it was teenybopper music.

Actually, they likely extended the life of Disco. They also wrote a number of songs performed by other artists who were involved in the Disco scene, including Yvonne Elliman.

Great song, though "How Deep Is Your Love?" may be my favorite song from their catalog.

Sure, but they had a career before disco, wrote disco songs reluctantly when the disco fad was already on its way out, and quickly went back to their roots once it had run its course.

Re: Bieber hopes Anne Frank would have been a fan

Biebers real problem is that he's beginning to notice that the groupies throwing their underwear at him are age inappropriate. If he wants grown up panties sailing at him, then he has to become a grown up.
