Featured Member -Nbmike Hi everyone. My name is Michael “Nbmike” Cormier. I will be turning 44 yrs old this summer, so while I may not be as old as the trees, unicorns, and dinosaurs, I’m definitely older than Compact Discs, MP3 Players, and Plasma TV. I am a single dad to my beautiful daughter Rhiannon (She thinks she’s 14 going on 40, which makes me often feel like I’m 80 lol). Ever since I found this site in November, I have enjoyed the trivia and memories found here. The people here are top notch at providing info when your memory kind of escapes you. I want to thank you all for welcoming me so warmly the last few months, and a big thanks to Steve for creating such a great site. OK, a little about me. I was born here in Saint John, NB Canada in 1965. I grew up in a small community outside of Saint John called Grand Bay, and lived there until I moved to the big city,(lol ….big city for NB, population, 70000 or so) In 1984, I started working as a radio announcer in town doing weekend and swing shifts. The job lasted a couple of years, but started a lifelong love with musical trivia, or even trivia in general. It was there that I found out about such things as plagiarism (Brian Wilson can say it was unintentional, but SURFIN USA just sounds like Chuck Berry’s SWEET LITTLE SIXTEEN with new lyrics)! We also played vinyl records back in those days, so I kinda feel like a dinosaur sometimes. lol After leaving the radio announcing job, I became a jack of all trades, until nagging back problems left me unemployed in 1994, and now I concentrate on raising my child and trying to develop projects. I have always had an interest in writing comedy, and have written some musical parodies that have made a few people laugh on a few occasions. I’m not egotistical about my writing by any means, but I have a rule of thumb. If I’m not laughing when I write the lyrics, then I keep running scenarios through my mind until I find the funniest scenario to me. I figure if I don’t find my writing funny, then how is anybody else supposed to? My hometown has some Hollywood connections. Louis B Mayer’s family moved here from overseas when he was a small child, and he grew up here until he left for Massachusetts when in his late teens, Actor Walter Pidgeon was born and raised here, as well as Lyman Ward, who played Ferris Beuller’s father, and Donald Sutherland was born here, but moved to Nova Scotia with his family when he was a teen. One Hollywood story I have heard is when Walter Pidgeon screen tested for MGM, Louis B Mayer thought he was sucking up to him, and summoned him to his office, and told him in no uncertain terms, that if Walter thought of putting Saint John NB as his hometown was going to gain him favor in Mayer’s eyes, it wasn’t going to work. When he told Mr.Mayer that Saint John WAS his hometown, then they had a laugh together. I am desperately shy in real life, but online I come out of my shell usually. I love participating here, just wish I had more time to contribute. Raising a teenager is like studying for a long and hard exam. You hope you have all the right answers, and you spend every waking hour trying to prepare for what’s coming up, but deep in your heart, you know you’re just flying without a net and hoping for the best, but I wouldn’t trade her for the world. The funny thing is that twenty years ago, I never though I had what it takes to be a Dad. I look forward to meeting new members and continuing to engage in trivia challenges and sharing memories with all. Thanks again for such a warm welcome here.

It Happened One Night Walls of Jericho One of the great pictures of the early takies era was It Happened One Night (1934) starring Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert. Colbert plays a spoiled heiress who runs away from her domineering father to marry her playboy fiance. Gable plays a reporter who finds her. He arranges to help her in return for an exclusive story. This scene finds the two strangers sharing a motel cabin. Gable establishes his quaint version of the 'Walls of Jericho' to keep their arrangement platonic.

Jib Jab RIP Dear JibJabber, Three years ago, my brother and I conceived JokeBox as a place on the web for people to share laughs. Since then, an amazing community has flourished around that idea and built the biggest joke database in the world. Today, JokeBox has over 140,000 video, text, photo and audio jokes that have been seen hundreds of millions of times. Given that success, it is with deep regret that we are announcing that we are taking JokeBox offline as of December 11, 2008......... We deeply apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. It is our sincere hope that we can bring the non-video and audio elements of JokeBox back online in 2009. To that end, we will keep you posted on our progress. Thanks for your support, understanding and, most of all, for sharing so many laughs on JokeBox over the years; No one is going to miss it more than we are. Sincerely, Evan and Gregg Spiridellis

Profumo Scandal 1963 The British love a good sex scandal or a good political scandal, so the combination of the two was irresistible in 1963. That year it was revealed that John Profumo, the British Secretary of State for War, who was married, had, in 1961, been having an affair with a much younger showgirl named Christine Keeler (pictured here). What made this especially troublesome for Profumo was that Keeler had also been liberally sharing her renowned horizontal pleasures with Yevgeny Ivanov, a naval attache to the Soviet Union's London embassy. During the height of the Cold War, the potential for dangerous pillow talk was a bigtime security breach. When the affair leaked out, Profumo at first denied the charges in parliament. Three months later he admitted they were true and was forced to resign. His prime minister, Harold MacMillan, himself resigned due to poor health a month later. It was undoubtedly exacerbated by the priapic shenanigans of Profumo. Keeler didn't come out of the scandal unscathed: She served nine months in the sneezer for perjury. The British government's report on the scandal became a national best-seller.
