I have four paintings to fill in my office that are blank and I was thinking about doing something with THE. The idea would be a stencil of Jeff Bridges in Lebowski with THE DUDE underneath. And then in the framed pic next to him, maybe Elvis as a stencil with THE KING underneath. And that's all I've got. And I'm not totally sold on either.
But I need some options.
What are some characters - real or fictional - who are known by their moniker with THE in it? Ideally two words. Including the THE.

I'm trying to find TV shows (or films) that contain a particular trope that I noticed while watching some old 1980's shows lately. Namely shows where the main character provides a sort of running narration throughout. [more inside]

I'm at home ill at the moment, watching lots of films and reading a lot (this week I've watched 14 films and read 2 books). I'd like to find sites (or podcasts/lectures/etc) that intelligently examine media and/or popular culture. I regularly read articles on Popmatters
and sometimes the A.V. Club
(but not so much). What are your favourite film/media crit resources? Podcasts? Lectures? Thank you in advance for any help!

I want to decorate a rec room in my basement with prints and other items that have been featured in movies and TV shows. I’m not looking for promotional things or other advertisements, but prints that are well known from those movies. Someone should see it and go “Hey!! That’s the thing from that movie! Where did you get that?” [more inside]

I'm a child of the '80s, and I loved the '80s. However, I didn't develop a sense of good taste until about 1994, and as a result my pop-culture radar is completely jammed with crappy cartoons designed to sell toys, cereal commercials, and Ewoks. Can you recommend totally awesome
movies/TV shows/etc. that will satisfy my '80s nostalgia, but are good enough to watch today? [more inside]

Is Sex and the City, or is it not, a worthwhile pastime? Is it an assault on the very essence of our human-ness, or does it teach women to be strong and independent in a man's world, or is it neither of these things and something else entirely? And finally, can a man who hates the show and a woman who loves it coexist in the same romantic relationship? Can they have amazing sex, at least?
