I'm going to avoid questions about 9/11 -- we're getting enough of that today.

What your thoughts on?

1.  Alice in Wonderland.

2. Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium. 

3. Wonder Woman

4. The Wonder Years

5. Stevie Wonder

6. Loius Armstrong's "What a Wonderful World"

7. Favorite one-hit wonder?

Savcal, I love you dearly, but this is way too much work!

1.  Alice in Wonderland.

Never really got into Alice.

2. Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium. 

Never seen the whole movie.

3. Wonder Woman

Girl power, loved the tv series back when I was a kid.

4. The Wonder Years

Never watched much.

5. Stevie Wonder

Good singer, I always think of him in the song "We are the World" from the 80's.

6. Loius Armstrong's "What a Wonderful World"

One of my favorite songs.

7. Favorite one-hit wonder?

Hmmm..."Relax", Frankie Goes to Hollywood comes to mind.

Ha Sav, I agree with Bord... this is too much work. ;) Well, not really, b/c I don't really have an opinion about anything on your list, lol.

I liked Wonder Years OK, but I really like that the actress who played Winnie Cooper grew up smart and cool in real life and not into some twerking fool.

Crap.  Another one bites the dust.

OMG! That video is AWESOME!  If only for the Slash/GNR reference.  (I just watched it for the first time)

http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/entertainment/2013/08/danica-mckellar-and-avril-lavigne-make-out-in-new-music-video/

But there is no twerking in it.  It's silly, violent (in a comic book way) and full of profanity, but there is no twerking.

No worries, there isn't any twerking in the video and everyone has clothes on, it reminds me of the cantina scene from Star Wars.  There is a kiss between them near the end but it's not a passionate one, it's pretty benign really.

She is not 100% pure but I guess she is better, by your standards, if she hasn't twerked in public bawahhhaa...

I've never understood the compulsion to appear half naked or naked in public gratuitiously, and admit that she's gone down somewhat in my estimation after knowing this about her.   I wish she'd left it at the math for girls books.  Those were awesome.
