I admit, my life revolves around the cable company. I suck off the teet of Cox. I also hate Cox! (yes, Cox, not Cocks). So, cable telephone, cable internet, cable entertainment. Or, more correctly, cable faux entertainment. It only gives the impression with the controller and the special box that I'm getting something. I'm getting about 5 channels I like and about several hundred that blow!
Please, FCC, force cable channels to charge ala carte. I just got digital cable because I got the little speech about how it'll be cheaper than just having the regular cable. Hmm... Only channel worth shit? National Geographic!
Here's just a sample of the wonderful lineup-I kid you not!
109--COXR2 (ads) Arizona exterminating
110--DAYST (fucking televangelist crapola--can you say "snake oil?")
112--INSP (inspirational--yeah, gag me with a spoon! Totally!)
113--EWTN (a nurse in a monk's robe giving us some kind of talk? Looks like a bad SNL skit)
114--BYU-TV (need I explain what BYU stands for? I'm in the fucking west!)
115--MCTV (community meetings)
119--SHNBC (selling shit--QVC wannabe)
122--TPC (Pentagon channel, WTF?)
123--ACTV (State government--yippee!)
124--CSPAN (need I explain?)
125--CSPN2 (apparently one was not enough!)
129--JWLRY (selling jewelry--I hate jewelry!)
I won't bore you anymore than I am. Channel surfing? It's channel cruise ship riding! If this is digital, why the fuck can't I assign my channels so I can at least not have Biography at 135 and Green at 103 and Syfy at 50? Oh fuck! I randomly hit a number and I'm back to the nun in the brown robe and the cross that looks like something a hip hop star would wear to the MTV awards.
I'm done surfing (steamboat riding)!
I wouldn't wipe my ass with these channels!
