    It would be funny if he ended up naming it CD-I. :p

    Today I learned the Oregon State Prison has their own cable company with different channel lineups than Comcast, which serves the majority of the rest of Salem.

    EDIT: To clarify, I didn't learn that by being there.

    It's probably a nicer one than mine, too.

    That reminded me of this flipnote from the good old days of Hatena:

    Sherlock Holmes is the most portrayed human character in film. I assumed it would've been Hamlet, Romeo/Juliet, or some other Shakespeare character.

    Dracula is the most portrayed non-human character in film.

    I learned once again that, contrary to what @Peter Paltridge told me in one of the closed YouTube threads, Seth Green didn't play the quarterback in the Free Spirit episode "Too Much of a Good Thing": The end credits list John Lacy as his actor, and refer to Seth Green's character as "Joey". I didn't correct Peter earlier because I forgot the QB's name (and Green's character's name as well; I thought it was "Chad"), and didn't feel like looking it up again for whatever reason.

    My mom told me last night that Ellie Goulding's dad is Rob Schneider. I don't know where she got that source, but it seems dubious.

    Edited to add this joke: "Rob Schneider is.... Ellie Goulding's Dad! Rated PG-13."

    Yeah, she messed up. Rob Schneider's daughter is actually Elle King.

    I learned that Sour Cream from Steven Universe is voiced by someone I consider one of Deadpool's best writers: Brian Posehn.

    Apparently, Miller-Boyett got pissed at ABC when they attempted to renew the series but move it to Saturday nights- which had just killed off Perfect Strangers- to make room for Boy Meets World and another Michael Jacobs show called Where I Live. So WB pulled it and moved it to NBC- who promptly killed it anyway by putting it after Saved by the Bell: The College Years, making it pointless.

    I just watched the fantastic 2015 ABC documentary Behind the Magic - Snow White and the 7 Dwarfs, and there was a part about Walt seeing a silent film of Snow White (in late January 1917, specifically) - a tidbit that Peter theorized was made up for Walt Disney: One Man's Dream. It's not as wacky as Mark Twain's ghost telling Walt that he should keep drawing, but still....
