    MaryAnne got a reaction from Skipper Duke in Some of My Hobbies....   
    Tempest! We're not bored at all!
    Nice trucks by the way. Khee!
    Hobbies....well, lessee this list could get odd but here we go...and apologies in advance if I bore y'all! ROFL.
    Dukes of Hazzard (duh. Why would I be here? ROFL). Collecting episodes, merchandise, writing stories, wasting my hours on this website. ROFL.
    Car restoration - 1986 Firebird. Next step is replacing the rest of the interior, hoping to do this next spring/summer. After that will be having the body refinished and re-painted....still debating on staying with black or doing a nice two-tone dark blue and silver. Khee!
    I too also collect anything Pontiac/Firebird/Trans Am. Also anything GM related or Dukes related Mopars. Hot Wheels, Matchbox or Johnny Lightning.
    DVD's.... I have an odd mix of favorite tv shows and movies. LOL. Dukes of course but also anything James Garner. I've started collecting Bob Hope films (okay I only have one right now but I'm gonna look for more. LOL). WWII movies. (Patton, Great Escape, ect...). I like old films of the 40's and 50's. Burt Reynolds movies. TV shows such as Starsky and Hutch. Waiting for Hogan's Heroes to come out on DVD. Wishing for the Rockford Files to come out on DVD. Also the Fall Guy. And Maverick.
    I still collect LP albums. And play 'em! =)
    Don't have any pets. Used to have gold fish but that was a hundred years ago. LOL.
    I have an acoustic guitar that I haven't had time to sit and play for about 6 years now. I did get it out once this past summer, busted a string on it, didn't have a replacement and decided I would take it to be restrung. Have yet to get around to doing that. LOL
    Truthfully I don't have a lot of hobbies because the bulk of my free time is spent either writing stories or tending to web page stuff between HNet and dukesofhazzardfanfic.com. If I got paid for the stories I write and the web work I do, I'd be rich. ROFL.

    MaryAnne got a reaction from Skipper Duke in KITT vs. General Lee   
    >>Brian, you have wicked scene of humor.
    Who would want a car that would leave you stranded.<<
    You've never met Brian's car.
    My own car, which looks enough like KITT as it is and has it OWN way of back talkin' to me, would probably be fairly well behaved if self-automated. I think. Maybe. ROFL

    MaryAnne got a reaction from Skipper Duke in One Burning Question?   
    I assumed the purpose of the poll was to see what other tv shows we watched back in the day besides the Dukes. So I ignored the Dukes in the listing and voted for the A-Team although several of the shows I watched pretty religiously as well, including the Fall Guy and Simon and Simon.
    Putting the Dukes in the listing of a poll on a Dukes related board is like having an election where several candidates of several parties are on the ballot but only one party is allowed to vote. Guaranteed winner. ROFL

    MaryAnne got a reaction from Skipper Duke in Drive Angry   
    Woah...a movie using REAL cars??!! Sweet!
    No comment on Cage, but the dude playing Satan's right hand man seems really good.
    "I'll see you when you're 73. I'll see you in 3 months..."
    GAAAAAHHH!!!

    MaryAnne got a reaction from Skipper Duke in Modern Music - Good or Bad?   
    Take heart, CD. I don't even know who the heck Willow Smith is. LOL
    Good music will always endure. Music produced today, only time will tell whether it's truly good or not. LOL
    Believe me, there's a lot of modern music that I just cannot stand to listen to. And with listening to it on the radio at work where they play the SAME songs over and over, day in and day out - makes me even less affable to most of it.
    There is modern stuff I like but I find most of it is the stuff that isn't played on the 'adult contemporary' format, or is currently burning up the charts. Like Hoss, I listen to a lot of different styles, genres and eras of music (which is why I enjoy taking part in the musical chairs thread LOL). From the 30s through today. Country, rock, blues, disco, swing.... the beat goes on.
    I could listen to 70's country music all day with Roger. And the Beatles? You bet. You're lookin' at the original weirdo girl who wore a Beatles t-shirt in jr. high when it wasn't cool to like the Beatles. (At the risk of dating myself, New Kids on the Block were the big screaming deal at the time. I hated them. LOL)
    So, I sympathize with you about modern music, CD. The good news is, there's lots of great music out there from now and yesteryear that finds its audience, folks like you and me and Hoss and Roger...and if your sister would rather listen to the latest boy band, well that's her loss. LOL.
    In fact, when I first saw this thread, I thought of this great ol' tune by Rush that I thought seemed fitting...
    Spirit of Radio - Rush
    All this machinery making modern music
    Can still be open hearted
    Not so coldly charted
    It's really just a question of your honesty, yeah
    Your honesty
    One likes to believe in the freedom of music
    But glittering prizes and endless compromises
    Shatter the illusion of integrity
    And speaking of skewed charts, it was recently noted that rapper Lil' Wayne has now had 109 songs in the Billboard Hot 100, beating out Elvis Presley. There's a great big huge astrisk on this tho' - most of the songs were not Lil' Wayne solo, he was a featured artist on somebody else's record.
    Therefore, I declare here and now that Elvis's record of 108 singles on the Hot 100 chart still stands. Lil' Wayne, please sit back down.

    MaryAnne got a reaction from Skipper Duke in One Word Song Titles   
    Mufn's got the brains, Brian's got the looks...and I just do floors around here. HEH!
    Speaking of background music while writing, this song is from an album that I listened to on a constant loop while writing a story a few years ago. (One of my Hogan's Heroes stories, "Sustaining the Wings.")
    Pilgrim - Enya
    Apologies for the double shot, but Brian might find this interesting as this song comes from another of Enya's albums that I listened to on a constant loop while writing the as-yet-unfinished/unposted story that saw the creation of Lt. Jack Morrison (for any y'all watching the Few Good Bad Guys thread).
    Watermark - Enya
  10. Haha
    MaryAnne got a reaction from Skipper Duke in One Word Song Titles   
    This is a great stripped down live version of this song.
    (As promised, I'm gonna try to add some titles to this thread. Be prepared for some very ecletic music y'all. LOL. Also, I noticed while skimming back through the thread that Hoss posted Arthur Brown's "Fire" which, yes I did use in a fanfic. I love the opening line, "I AM THE GOD OF HELLFIRE! And I bring you..." LOL)

    MaryAnne got a reaction from Skipper Duke in Rednecks of NASCAR   
    HOSS!! I love it, I love it!! That is awesome!
    Man, I would so love to see that car in a NASCAR race. I wonder if Warner Brothers would be interested in sponsoring a car... LOL
  12. Haha
    MaryAnne got a reaction from Skipper Duke in Rednecks of NASCAR   
    Voldemort. ROFL. I'm glad tho' that Garrett answered what car he drives for those who don't know as I didn't want to go look it up. I, for the record, don't know what car he drives now (and don't really care LOL) but I knew he was no longer driving for Home Depot.
    Which means I can now go into a Home Depot with a clear conscience.
    And I love the "I'm All Shook Cup" KHEE!
    Another idea would be if a enough rednecks get together to sponsor it, with a lot of beer, we could have the "Hick Cup."
  13. Haha
    MaryAnne got a reaction from Skipper Duke in Rednecks of NASCAR   
    Whoever you root for Roger, do not - I repeat - DO NOT root for He Who Shall Not Be Named (tony stewart - ugh, I hated to even type that).
    Do not root for him.
    Do not.
    Every opinion I have about He Who Shall Not Be Named can be summed up easily.

    And that's all I have to say about that.
    Dale Jr, however, yes root for him. Good choice!
    As for the apparent loss of southern flavor for NASCAR...yeah, it seems a little more cosmopolitian now. There was a time when your biggest corporate sponsors were either booze or cigarettes. Rebel flags flew from nearly every camper and car at every track. Most of the tracks were in the south. Now it's spread out all over the country, cigarette sponsors are gone, booze is still hanging on, but the rebel flags are few and far between and we have the likes of Viagra as sponsors. ("Mommy, what does male enhancement mean?" Ahem....)
    My brother and I joked that when Winston gave up the main sponsorship of the Cup race, that Koolaid shoulda stepped in. Then we'd have the Koolaid Cup.
    Or Gerber (the baby food maker) coulda sponsored and we'd have the Sippy Cup.
    Or the makers of paper cups, Dixie, coulda sponsored and we'd have..well, the Dixie Cup. Southern inference, however, not implied.
    Or Maxwell House coulda sponsored and we'd have the Coffee Cup...
    Awright, I better stop. LOL

    Thank you all! I had a good day today for having a birthday on a Monday. LOL
    In that case I am closer to my shoe size than my actual age.

    MaryAnne got a reaction from Skipper Duke in Opinions Needed...   
    Now Brian, you know that would be considered a form of fraud and---
    Wait. Did you say a free donut with a large coffee purchase? Well sonofagun...
    Let me think on that one. Meantime, you and I both have turned 21 multiple times there Mr. Kettle.

    So Brian, since your pretty well versed in the mechanics of fake IDs, you gonna get yourself a fake AARP card so you can get the senior citizen's discount at Denny's?

    MaryAnne got a reaction from Skipper Duke in Hazzardnet Bake Sale on August 25th?   
    Looks Brian cooked up this idea....
  20. Wow
    MaryAnne got a reaction from Skipper Duke in www.behindthename.com   
    Well I've found...
    Five saints named Luke
    Two hurricanes named Daisy
    Biblical character named Jesse (father of King David)
    Biblical character named Enos (Enosh - Genesis 5:6)
    No namesakes for Bo or Beauregard
    Cooter doesn't even come up as a name at all
    Rosco comes up under Roscoe but no namesakes (No Saint Rosco? Hmm... LOL)
    Jefferson (for Boss) has no namesakes either.

  21. Haha
    MaryAnne got a reaction from Skipper Duke in My Posts!   
    Yup. And it's all Brian's fault. He had to prove he could write posts that had absolutely no quality to 'em...

    MaryAnne got a reaction from Skipper Duke in HOSSC HAPPY BIRTHDAY, enjoy this great day friend.   
    You're a hard act to follow in the mush and sentiments department, Roger.
  23. Haha

    MaryAnne got a reaction from Skipper Duke in The Return of TNN - good news for Dukes?   
    First of all, yeeehaw that TNN is comin' back!
    Second, MeTV is on frequently in my house. And I even get to watch it on my lunch hour at work. LOL. Tho' as much as I like Frank Cannon if I don't get back to going for walks on my lunch hour I will LOOK like Frank Cannon before it's over with...
    And lastly, I'm amazed that as we sit here in 2012 with digital cable, satellite tv and all, that we can still talk of having rabbit ears for the tv... LOL

    MaryAnne got a reaction from Hobie Hartkins in coy and vance's car   
    Welcome to HNet Lady Amanda.
    Well, if'n I recall correctly, the car Coy n' Vance arrived in Hazzard in was a blue Plymouth Roadrunner (similar to Daisy's first car...a '74). I seem to think the car had a white stripe running over the hood and roof.
    That car was toasted for lunch by the mean green machine. LOL
