You've made a lot of references to Lorenzo Lamas on this blog. [Including here, here and here.] Is he your go-to guy for 80s references? Do you have one for other decades or pop culture events?It's funny that Lorenzo Lamas keeps coming up in my lists, because I'm pretty sure I've never seen a single movie featuring him. And I didn't watch "Renegade" during its surprisingly long five-season run.
I was looking through the related lists yesterday, and I re-read your 11 Points movie reviews from last year, and remembered how much fun they were--are there ever going to be more? Did you stop going to the movies? Am I the only one who enjoyed them? Just curious--I would like to see some 11 Points reviews of this year's movies. Not that I would stop visiting the site or anything otherwise, just a thought.I've only done six movie reviews on this site (Iron Man, Wanted, Hancock, Dark Knight, Pineapple Express and Religulous). Really, there are two main reasons I stopped doing movie reviews:

Out of curiosity, is there any reason that you've stopped making the 11 points reviews? They seem like a good regular feature to the site...

Hello sir. I am a big fan of 11points.com and a fellow simpsons fan. In your most recent inbox-o-rama you responded to a bunch of questions from a reader about the "golden age" of the simpsons. I have always wondered when the "golden age" actually ended. I own the dvds for seasons 2-11, and i enjoy them all, but i am wondering at what point did they start to enter the "average" stage i feel they are in now? Since i shared many of the same favorite characters, episodes, etc.. from your response to the questions, i thought you would be a good person to ask. So should i buy season 12 or not?I'm definitely not as much of a "Simpsons" purist as a lot of fans -- while I recognize the "Golden Age" I still think there have been tons of modern episodes that have been absolutely fantastic.
The Soul Man tagline isn't completely irrelevant, it's a play on "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner" a play about a white girl who brings her black boyfriend home to meet her conservative family. However, the tagline alone isn't enough to convey the plot of the film.Smackracer was just one of lots of people wrote in to tell me it's not completely irrelevant, it's a reference to "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner", which was also race-centric. (No one mentioned that the movie was remade with Ashton Kutcher and Bernie Mac.)
Here's another "Photoshop out the black guy!" [The black guy was originally added for the English version of the site.]Once again, I am proud that my 11 Photos Where Black People Were Awkwardly Photoshopped In or Out list is starting to make me a go-to guy for these race-swappin' pictures. However, in retrospect, maybe I should've called that list guess who's coming to Photoshop.
I discovered another T9 word switch that I think is pretty funny. Try typing "Smirnoff" ... its first guess is "poisoned".This is another great T9 switch. As much as I'm now a BlackBerry (and, therefore, fully QWERTY keyboard) guy, these are so good that I'm now fully on board for a list about the best 11 T9 switches. Please send yours in now so I can put it together!

You may have seen the attached picture before but if not, i thought you might get a kick out of it. Belmullet is a only a few miles from where i live but i'm seriously thinking about moving there!. Maybe you could include it in a list like the funniest unintentional newspaper headlines or something.I've reread this headline over and over and can't possibly figure out why they would've phrased it that way... except to get attention. So, mission accomplished.

Perhaps, as a heterosexual male, you are not the right person to ask- but you mentioned it. What in the world is it with women and Matt Lauer? I am a women and do not at all find him attractive. At all.Ya know Jess, I have no idea the appeal of Matt Lauer. Even though I'm a hetero male, I just don't think he's even remotely handsome.

I've decided to skip ahead and compare you to Matt Lauer now. Because in this photo you really do remind me of him.The more I think about it, I guess I do see some real handsomeness in ol' Matt Lauer.
@GeneralSalt: You ganged up on a hobo? Not cool. You should have defused the situation with hugs, love and words of peace.Well... I think it's time to clear the air on what really went down that Saturday night.
@ImThatDingo: Crazy hobo encounters are thrilling...
@djphob: Violence is never the answer and you are never too old or too cool to listen to your mother.
@froggfan09: You shoved a hobo? Rude
Hi Sam,Awesome. Just... awesome.
A friend of mine sent me a link that he'd run across in which you mention me in one of your lists.
I just wanted to let you know that I'm alive and kicking and (as far as I'm aware) in good heath....oh, and I haven't been in the closet for almost 25 years :-)
