The Man Show One of the more over-the-top TV shows to hit the airwaves in recent years was The Man Show. From 1999 to 2004 it was a half-hour program that aired on Comedy Central. It was created in 1999 by its two original co-hosts, Jimmy Kimmel and Adam Carolla. Kimmel had earlier gained a following hosting the offbeat game show Win Ben Stein's Money on the same cable network. The Man Show overtly and proudly celebrated the stereotypical loutish male perspective in a sexually charged, humorous light. The show consisted of a variety of pre-recorded comedy sketches and live in-studio events, usually requiring audience participation. The show tried to touch on all the aspects of alpha-maleness: excessive drinking, the sexualization of women, obsession with sports, and general lack of refinement. Typical of the fare on The Man Show was a recurring segment called Wheel of Destiny in which a lucky participant selected from the studio audience could win one of four desirable prizes (such as an erotic massage from two female porn stars or $10 in cash) or one of four undesirable prizes (such as "Adam pees on your wallet" or having a sumo wrestler sit on your face). Each show routinely ended with a slow-motion video montage of comely females in lingerie jumping on trampolines. Shakespeare it wasn't--but it had its moments. Kimmel and Carolla left The Man Show in 2003. With new co-hosts Joe Rogan and Doug Stanhouse taking over the helm, the show lost much of its luster and lasted just one more season before being cancelled. A total of 114 episodes were made in five seasons. The Man Show's first four seasons are available on DVD.

Aloysius Travers - Emergency Pitcher One of the most interesting pitching lines in MLB history belongs to Aloysius (Al) Travers, a 20-year old seminary student, who pitched once for the Detroit Tigers in 1912--a complete-game 24-2 loss to the defending World Series champion Philadelphia A's. Of course there has to be an explanation: Travers wasn't really a pitcher! He was hastily recruited among a group of local Philadelphia amateur ballplayers to replace the striking Detroit Tigers. The Tigers' regulars walked off the field shortly before game time at Philadelphia's Shibe Park on Saturday, May 18, 1912 to protest the suspension of center fielder Ty Cobb. (Cobb had jumped into the stands during a game in New York three days earlier to fight a heckler.) Faced with a potential forfeit and a huge fine, the Tigers' management recruited Travers and other amateur players as emergency replacements. Travers was the ersatz Tigers' only pitcher--and he wasn't even good enough to make the baseball team at St. Joseph's College. Be that as it may, Travers was forced to face some of the most vaunted hitters in the majors in front of 20,000 fans. In eight innings, he allowed 24 runs (14 earned), and 26 hits. Travers also walked seven A's and struck out one. He was paid $25 for his efforts. Travers, shown here in a photograph taken late in his life, eventually became a priest. To date, Travers is the only priest known to have pitched in an MLB game.

What Would You Do and Double Dare 90s host  Marc Summers says half his face was wiped out in a car accident. Week of August 5, 2012 in Philadelphia, Marc Summers: Car Accident 'Wiped Out' Half My Face Marc Summers is grateful to be alive after sustaining serious facial injuries during a car accident last week. The 60-year-old star, who currently hosts The Food Network's "Unwrapped," was a passenger in a taxi cab in Philadelphia when the vehicle hydroplaned during a "torrential downpour," Summers told People. PLAY IT NOW: Billy Bush Reveals Details Of His Bicycling Accident & Complicated Recovery "I knew when [the driver] lost control that I was in trouble. I was on the phone with my supervising producer and I said, 'Oh my God, we're going to crash!'" he told the mag, recalling the harrowing moments right before the wreck. "Next thing I knew, I woke up and had blood all over me." Summers' head slammed against the plastic partition between the cab's front and backseats upon impact, badly damaging his face. VIEW THE PHOTOS: We Like What They’re Cooking: Stars Of The Food Network! "Everything on the left side from my eye socket down was just wiped out," he told the mag. "My eye socket got all swollen. I'm having trouble seeing completely out of the left eye... There's lots of titanium and screws in my face." Adding, "I was pretty lucky that I didn't have brain damage." Summers, a longtime TV producer and former host of Nickelodeon's "Double Dare," underwent a four-hour operation at the hand of a plastic surgeon following the accident. VIEW THE PHOTOS: Celebrity Chefs & Foodies While the star is still in tremendous pain, he said his doctor is confident the lengthy operation was successful. "Everything went back into place," he told the mag. "In a few weeks, the swelling will go down and no one will ever know ... I'll be a new guy." VIEW THE PHOTOS: Slime Time! 2012 Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards Though he faces an arduous recuperation and is still having difficulty chewing solid foods, Summers is already on a mission to prevent this type of accident from happening to anyone else. "Appreciate all the good wishes from everyone. Pain a little less each day. Will you help me in a campaign to rid cabs of plastic partitions?" he Tweeted on Saturday, later adding that the blockades "serve no purpose other than hurting people" and are "way [too] close to backseat despite seat belts." -- Erin O'Sullivan Copyright 2012 by NBC Universal, Inc.

When Oatmeal was Cool for Breakfast 1993 When Oatmeal was Cool for Breakfast 1993 Fare from 1993 (OH GOD SHIVERY SPINE) Quakers Kids' Choice Instant Oatmeal was a little more mundane but still a pretty cool and fun product. Coming in serving-sized packets it featured mini packets inside that flavoured the oatmeal with your choice of Radical Raspberry, Strawberries n' Stuff or Cinnamagic. The only real cool thing about this oatmeal was the flavour packets turned the oatmeal different colours which is probably to be expected considering the flavour packets were different colours than the oatmeal itself and well.. Changing of colours tends to happen when you add colour into something that is otherwise colourless. Kind of lame but the stuff was good so we'll throw them a bone. Honestly this one probably was discontinued due to lack of consumer appeal, it wasn't that it was bad but.. Face it.. If you had the other oatmeals to choose from such as Cookie Blast or Under Cover Bears are you going to choose the oatmeal that just changes colour because you added a coloured flavour packet? No. You're going to pick the cooler and more fun ones because you're a kid and you're simple.

Oatmeal Swirlers  when I ate it 1990 or so I believe these came out in 1989, but for the purpose of this article, I remember eating it in the early 1990's. Maybe 1990-1992? The best of the Oatmeal world? The Oatmeal everyone seems to remember, a little commercial launched in the early 90s; General Mills Oatmeal Swirlers. Everyone loved Oatmeal Swirlers, at least everyone that could remember them or does remember them and anyone that had them at one point or another in their lives. This was a brilliant oatmeal, the epitome of fun with food it was an oatmeal that not only came with it's own flavoring you could choose (six different flavors in all) But the flavouring packets were also created in such a way to urge you to cut a single snippet off and use them as drawing implements on your oatmeal creating your own artistic expression upon a steaming bowl of mush. I don't care if it sounds horrible, it wasn't; it was AWESOME. From Tic-Tac-Toe played presumably with your evil alter-ego since I assume you're not going to have another person hovering over your bowl playing a rousing game of Tic-Tac-Toe against you in your oatmeal? To happy faces and pretty much anything else you could fathom or at least manage to draw on your warm gruel with your gel incarnation of artful expression the gel delights were many and plenty. Strawberry, Maple, Brown Sugar, Grape, Orange or Milk Chocolate are the flavours that this came in so far as I can remember, this is purely off a decades old fuzzy memory and at the time I wasn't in the habit of obsessively remembering things such as these because I didn't fathom they'd ever be gone and need to be remembered so don't quote me absolutely on the flavours. Never mind that, I'm right about most of them that much I know and another thing I know is that this was an unbelievably awesome oatmeal that should have never been discontinued but was. If one major product General Mills absolutely needs to bring back it's Oatmeal Swirlers Oatmeal and in that interest, I'm bringing attention to a petition I found online. It's small now but I feel perhaps if we spread this around the retro-sites of the internet maybe we can make a dent, maybe General Mills can be shown reason and the era of the Oatmeal Swirler may once more return to us in it's glorious gooey goodness. Please consider taking part and spreading this around! There is a Pension to bring them back! http://www.change.org/petitions/general-mills-bring-back-the-product-oatmeal-swirlers-instant-oatmeal

Pop Qwiz Popcorn 1990 1990s Colors included yellow, blue, green, and a mystery bag with a surprise color. I'm not sure how many of you will remember this stuff, but it was just too weird not to mention. Video store chains became especially popular during the early 90s; a fact proven by the insidious amount of Blockbuster commercials strewn into TV breaks at the time. As more and more movie nights were staged from home, popcorn finally shed its "theater treat" stigma for good while sales soared. Those microwaveable bags of kernels became and remain a staple in most households, with several companies competing for the coveted top spot. Yes, there's competition in popcorn. So how do you make one popcorn more attractive than the other? For the most part, it's all the same shit. Covering the packaging with pretty colors and in-your-face fonts only took these companies so far, and while dubious additions like cheddar dust and Cajun red spice helped differentiate the products, General Mills had something else in mind. Something strange. "Pop Qwiz." Perhaps the first and only popcorn marketed exclusively towards children. Thrown under General Mills' "Pop Secret" banner, Pop Qwiz really broke the mold. Junk food with a gimmick is common nowadays, but this stuff was pretty unique in 1991. Basically, it was just regular, buttered popcorn dyed in every color of the rainbow. You had bags of red popcorn, blue popcorn, green, yellow, you name it. That alone was sure to bring in a substantial clientele -- kids'll eat anything that looks odd. Pop Qwiz had more to offer than weird colors, though. While each of the mini-sized bags had correspondently bright colors, the colors of the bags didn't necessarily match the shade of the popcorn within. What was surely just a cost cutting measure was sold to us as a "game" -- it was up to us to guess which popcorn color was in each bag. The point of the game is up for debate, as we got to eat all of the popcorn even if we guessed wrong. Taking things even further, the bags had all sorts of quizzes, puzzles, and other stupid games printed right on 'em. Children always appreciate things tailored specifically for them, and while popcorn wasn't an important victory, we took it with great pride. We had our own popcorn. Tomorrow, the world. You'd have to imagine that some kids would've begged for Pop Qwiz just by passing the colorful box in grocery stores, but the point was really driven home with General Mills' ad campaign. This was crucial for ten trillion reasons, and I swear, I've counted. Okay, how often do you see popcorn advertised during children's programming hours? It's pretty rare, so Pop Qwiz was playing to an audience its competitors never even thought to tackle. Another point: when a kid wants popcorn, words are rarely minced. "I want popcorn." That's all that's ever said. No specific brands are mentioned, no bias towards one particular popcorn is conveyed. Just a simple "I want popcorn." By throwing the "Pop Qwiz" title in our heads, General Mills created a sense of inadvertent brand loyalty. If we wanted popcorn, we asked for popcorn. If we wanted crazy wacky colored popcorn, we asked for Pop Qwiz. And what kid wouldn't always prefer crazy wacky colored popcorn? This was all much more brilliant than it seemed on the surface, and the commercial was a real keeper to boot. I know I focus more on earlier years with these articles, but as I was entering my ugly, lonely teen years during the 90s, I ended up watching a whole lot more television. Alone. This "Pop Qwiz" ad, to me, is just as synonymous with the time as any of the big ones, including that PSA where the Ninja Turtles exposed the dangers of marajuana. It surprises me that the snacks weren't very successful -- I guess the world just wasn't ready to accept, much less eat radioactive green popcorn. Artists are so often unappreciated in own their time, even if they only work in kernels.

Surge The Drink Commercial 1997 My guess due to not selling enough, they stopped production?.. Crazy right? I know.. great stuff.. I'd drink this over Mountain Dew since it came out. As a Kid I grabbed for this in the fridge first! after School 1996 In 1996, Coca-Cola started production on Surge, a variation of the Norwegian soft drink named Urge. Surge was produced and marketed in the United States, with its original whitepaper name being "MDK," or "Mountain Dew Killer."[1] Surge's release was accompanied by a vast nationwide marketing campaign that led to initially high sales and popularity. A few years after the release, sales began to slip, and as a result the Coca-Cola company ceased production of Surge in can and bottle form in 2002. They proceeded to discontinue Surge fountain syrup in 2003. Save Surge: After the discontinuation of Surge in cans, a community was formed by web designer Eric "Karks" Karkovach entitled "SAVE SURGE." The movement initially mapped the locations at which Surge could be purchased in fountain form. Upon cancellation of the fountain syrup, the community continued, adopting an approach of activism. Members would create "recipes" meant to mimic the look and taste of Surge, sign and distribute petitions, protest at their local bottling plants, and otherwise pressure Coca-Cola to bring back their favorite beverage. They got a response in 2005 when Vault was brought to market, and while Coca-Cola has yet to confirm the similarity in taste and appearance, the members of the movement took the inception of Vault as the fruit of their labors. Its really simple. Surge Movement Upon the discontinuation of Vault in December 2011, the "SURGE MOVEMENT" formed on Facebook as an activist group to lobby Coca-Cola for the soft drink's return. Sharing the same goal as its predecessor, the group seeks to have Surge produced once more, as a result of Vault's discontinuation. The group repetitively posts requests on Coca-Cola's Facebook page, and encourages its members to call Coca-Cola's feedback hotline to voice their desires further. The Movement initially has gained over 9,000 Facebook "likes" in the months after it was started and continues to grow. The members plan on continuing to flood the walls of Coca-Cola and its subsidiaries until they receive an official statement from the company. Bring it back?...YES.. why not Most likely it will be a hit due to the fact its been gone for some time..One last thing, yes the Original design can was the best.. it wasn't made with straight edges like the 2nd edition.. it was meant to be different with the bubble style lettering!

Farleys Teenage Muntant Ninja Turtles Snacks 1990 Farley's Teenage Muntant Ninja Turtles Snacks 1990-1997? The Turtles were all over the place in the early ’90s. You couldn’t walk into a Kay Bee toy store or supermarket without seeing their faces and logo plastered all over some type of product. As far as food tie-ins go, other than Pizza-Crunchabungas and TMNT cereal, Farley’s TMNT fruit snacks were a high point in the merchandising blitz that controlled my young life. Farley’s was always produced a low budget line of fruit snacks. You could just tell from packaging and flavor and texture that they weren’t the best brand around. Farley’s was the type of fruit snacks where you’d see a whole palette of them in the middle of the sales floor at the Dollar Tree (no doubt right alongside whatever licensed cereal Ralston was pumping out that month). They couldn’t compete with Sunkist or Betty Crocker but cheap fruit snacks are still very good in my opinion because you can never really go wrong with fruit snacks in the first place. One of the great things about fruit snacks is that they double as toys if you’re creative enough. Who else had the Turtles battle Shredder and his henchman before playing the part of a giant and gobbling them all up? I think Leatherhead was my favorite to eat just because I like Leatherhead and I think he’s a criminally unappreciated part of the Turtles universe. I was disappointed there was no Rat King though.

1st Man On Moon Neil Armstrong Passes At Age 82 Former U.S. astronaut, Neil Armstrong, the first man on the moon, has died at the age of 82, NBC News reported on Saturday. Armstrong underwent a heart-bypass surgery earlier this month to relieve blocked coronary arteries. As commander of the Apollo 11 mission, Armstrong became the first human to set foot on the moon on July 20, 1969. It was Armstrong who coined the now famous expression, "That's one small step for [a] man. One giant leap for mankind" as he first set foot on the surface of the moon.
