Re: TheCab ads remind me of a Blackface routine

Chris Farley was an extremely funny guy. But I kind of (not to be Mr. No Fun) think that that act was another Blackface type of act. Getting a laugh by getting a huge group of people to laugh at a...

Re: TheCab ads remind me of a Blackface routine

Thanks for your kind reply.

There are probably lots of white folks today who would still laugh at a Blackface performer and not be offended in the least. I'm not saying that they are evil people...

TheCab ads remind me of a Blackface routine

I am transgender and wonder if any other transgender people find TheCab's Frank Delima ads offensive?

To me they remind me of a Blackface routine. Something that was done in the past but in...

Re: Local TV Ads You Don't Like

I stopped watching tv about 2 years ago.

Every once in awhile I'll click through the channels and I can only watch each one for 1-2 seconds. I'll go through all the channels and there is nothing...

I've noticed that too.

Maybe they can accept hotter audio signals now.

Re: Local TV Ads You Don't Like

Ever since Oceanic started that series of ads with the oddly matched couple I haven't been able to find my remote fast enough when it comes on. I don't know why but I find the guy, the girl and the...

Re: KGMB - KHNL - KFVE "shared services agreement"

I just watched the 9 pm news with Stephanie Lum and it was terrible. There were really no news stories, just her going to Vegas and walking around a bit. When she was in Vegas you could see wires...

Re: Big cars in Honolulu

I remember when they made Windward Mall the parking stalls for Liberty House were way larger than for the others, Sears and J.C. Penny.

I figured it was because Liberty House was going after all...

Re: Big cars in Honolulu

What happened is that the government made laws so the car companies couldn't make so many large cars like in the 70's and before.

So the car companies a) made more and more trucks and convinced...

(sorry kind of a heavy post)

I guess what I meant about being a liberal person and the swearing bit was that I am rarely offended by things.
Very little humor offends me. Humor that would offend lots and lots of people...

Re: The Andy Bumatai Show

One more thing (since I got the mic):
I think of myself as a pretty open minded person. I'm for gay marriage, no drug laws and was raised where my Dad would whack us in a second if we ever said...

Re: The Andy Bumatai Show

I tried to watch it again last night and like every other time lasted about 5 minutes.
I admit restaurants and eating in general have little appeal to me for a discussion topic.

The trouble is,...

I'm an out of the box type person. For me there's lots of places, unseen beaches in Punaluu and great backyards that I wouldn't...

Re: The Andy Bumatai Show

I think personally, it's kind of a cop out to blame the budget. The camera work on Survivorman isn't exactly Disney but that's a gripping show.
I'd like to see Andy walk on the beach barefoot with...

Was the Bible an analog conversion box?

I found out that the remote that came with my Magnavox convertor box (from Sears) has no volume control on it, so I still have to use the old remote for that. I suppose I could stick them back to...

Re: The Andy Bumatai Show

I was wondering why they are fighting so hard to make the green screen work?
There's so many great, free backgrounds here that you don't have to do anything to that say "we are in Hawaii".

I made an antenna like this:

It's the same as back in the 70's - 2 snowy channels from Maui.
I bought a Magnavox converter box at Sears Kaneohe yesterday...
