60 Minutes? When's the last time they did an accurate report on anything?

Default Re: Talk about

Maybe if they cut the show's running time in half it would be more endurable. It's way too padded out. And the commentary is too hyperbolic in the desperation to create something of interest where there is none.



Sort of like trying to make soccer exciting. All the overblown commentary in the world won't stop the zzzzzzzzz...........



Grass growing is, after all, grass growing, even if Geraldo Rivera is telling you that it's the most exciting thing on earth.

Default Re: Talk about

I watch it on occasion.

the two things that bother me the most about that show are

the "try to excite me" music.

the over the top 'voice over' loser who is also attempting to make me feel excited about ... ahhh.. something or other.

sometimes interesting, sometimes innovative. most times, ho hum.

if I'm home I'll watch his 20 min spot.



oh, and my opinion on Jesse himself?

I think he's doing ok for all the fame.

I'm not sure I'd be that much different.... sans the tattoos.

Maybe Dan Rather will roll out an Evo-engined chopper Jesse built in 1971.

I hope they ask him his opinion of the soft RUBs buying his creations. According to his hard persona, he should hate them. But he loves them for their money. Cognitive dissonance would be fun to watch.



JJ seems like the Donald Trump of the biker world -- the name has eclipsed the accomplishments. Anyone for a photoshop of the DonaldÂ’s combover on JJ?



But IÂ’ll probably listen to it while IÂ’m chopping up/installing backerboardÂ… if I remember.



Does JJ on 60mins mean he has officially "jumped the shark?"

Donald Trump of the biker world? Doubt it. After all, it was DT's father who built the empire. DT is only notable for his ability to dominate the media. Also he's probably the only person who could lose money running a casino.



Maybe JJ should start his own reality show. They could call it "JJ's Rubbies". Each week a Rubbie would be shot from a cannon across the snake river on the bike he bought from JJ.

Wait a second. I was agreeing with you wasn't I?



I guess I've got that cognitive dissonance thing too today.

I find it kind of curious that that he would be on sixty minutes not for his chopper company, but for this overexposing-milk-the-cow-for-all-it's-worth show.



I thought after marrying a porn star and then proceeding to give each other beatings and subsequently divorce papers, he would have learned to be a bit more demure.
