I found a site with hundreds of old TV theme songs.
It’s not much to look at, and the audio ain’t the best, but it’s free (and apparently maintained by a patriotic american, thank you, sir). Spending some hours there reminded me that composers and musicians used to take the craft seriously. You can find just about anything. Good? The Avengers
, Barney Miller
, Green Hornet
, Hawaii Five-O
, Rockford Files
, Room 222
. Feelgood? The Courtship of Eddie’s Father
. Cheese? Dynasty
, Three’s Company
. 80s schlock? Hardcastle & McCormick
. Check out the mess that is the theme for The Bionic Woman
. Did you remember that Jose Feliciano did Chico and the Man
? I bet you didn't know...well...WTF: The Associates
. I wondered where the tradition went, but, then, after MTV, I guess all the media became one and ‘TV’ ‘Theme’ ‘Music’ became something like this
. My favorite theme? I had to go elsewhere to find it: it’s my own

Wisconsin cheese names in jeopardy
The European Union is trying to impose restrictions (a la champagne) on what you can call certain cheeses that are produced in locations other than their 'native' region. Is this purely an economic ploy, or is there some merit behind it?

Now here's a product who's time has come.
I spied a bag of this on the shelf of the local supermarket yesterday and an impulse buy was born. I'm munching some right now and it's quite tasty, grease, cheese, salt, serious heat, all your junk food needs in one package. This and other recent snack products like Wormz in Dirt(gummi worms rolled in Oreo crumbs) lead me to believe the food companies are hiring stoners to work in product development.I'm sure you guys can cite other examples to prove my point.
