Okay, there is of course NO comment of any substance that can be made about this post, so I want to offer up this stand-in comment:

That chick at the 0:27 mark in Tuesday night's show is a frickin' doll. She is so fine. Put her in the place of Back Right (awesome blond who apparently has skee-daddled/been kicked-out - whatever - but who still appears however in the capture in the "Tune In Tonight!" square).

God forbid that more of these babes should do stories, but at least emphasize more eye candy.

Piper was at the peak of his career when he made gems like HELL COMES TO FROG TOWN and THEY LIVE.

It would be funny if he appeared in court with a pair of black sunglasses yelling,"JUDGE !! You have to put on these glasses and see what I saw !! Then you would understand! The Aliens! They are here, THEY LIVE here among us!!! "

Next to "They Live," one of Roddy Piper's most entertaining B-movies is "Jungleground" (1995). If you're a fan of his, check it out. A friend of mine met Piper at a book signing 5 or 6 years ago and chatted with him a while. Said Roddy's one of the nicest guys imaginable.
