As a fan of the 1985 Anne of Green Gables and 1994 Little Women of course I knew about the similarities between the proposal scenes.



I'm also a fan of the 2019 Little Women, but it was only today that I realized how much closer the proposal scene in that one match's Anne's.



It's odd. I like several versions of Little Women (as I've mentioned before, you gotta see William Shatner and John deLancie in the 1978 one), but Anne is a completely different kettle of fish. All versions other than Sullivan's (first two) films pale in comparison. The World Masterpiece Theater anime is a valiant effort, but still falls short. I refuse to watch Anne With An E on principle, but that's a whole other rant.

LGR covers some 3.5" disk versions of old DOS shareware games.


I still have fond memories of the shareware era. I don't think I ever had the 3.5" disks, I got them on CD compilations. Anyway, if you remember this era the video is worthwhile if only for the atrocious cover art. The Commander Keen art alone is worth the watch.

How to Talk Minnesotan the PBS TV special


This stuff is thirty years out of date, but it's still funny to me. Reading the comments was also great, especially seeing how it also applies to residents of the Upper Midwest and Scandinavia in general.

Irish People do the Mystery Hot Sauce Challenge


Twelve sauces from 1-mild to 12-HOT! What will you get?


I like spicy food, but some of those hot sauces sound scary. I don't think I've ever had ghost pepper.

Trailer for the Power Rangers 30th Anniversary Special


Am I petty for resenting how well these guys have aged compared to me?


I've gone on about my history with the franchise enough times that I don't want to become tedious. Sufficed to say, there are parts of me that wish that I still had time to watch the show.

After all these years I'm glad the E-D still gets respect (even if I would place the E-A above it in terms of aethetics), but after thirty-odd years can we finally admit that the saucer was too big and the nacelles were too small?
I have always said the D is the worst Enterprise (until Enterprise started coming up with awful future Ents). It's a caricature.

The evolution of baseball games over the decades. We had Hardball 4, which is not in this video but was fun enough, other than the impossibility of hitting home runs outside of the home run derby.

A breakdown of the Constitution class. Were there really only 12? Were there different versions? Did they have staggered launches?


Today I learned that the 12 thing comes straight from "Tomorrow Is Yesterday"...


CHRISTOPHER: Must have taken quite a lot to build a ship like this.
KIRK: There are only twelve like it in the fleet.
CHRISTOPHER: I see.



Many of us over the years have taken this to mean only 12 (I don't particularly like the idea of 13: 12+Enterprise).

Seen on-screen as definitely Constitution-class: Enterprise, Constellation, Lexington, Excalibur, Hood, Potemkin, Defiant

We can assume: Constitution

Only seen on the repair chart in "Court Martial": Exeter, Kongo

Appears as Constitution-class in the remastered version: Intrepid

Only seen in reference material or the novels as Constitution-class: Essex, Farragut, Hornet, Republic, Valiant, Eagle, Yorktown


So that's 11 TOS-era ships and 7 possibles. And some of the possibles could be pre-TOS era ships or a different class entirely.
