example - the DishTV

500 channels & only two with "challenging" or original content :

IFC & TOON (adult swim)

I also watch a lot of RFD-TV, but only because they're re-running Hee-Haw.
(I love me some Buck Owens & Roy Clark is one the top five guitar pickers of all time)
plus, I've got some mules I'm working with, and the "Mule Training" series is amazing.
(farm-porn angle, too, but WTF ...)

I personally feel that this message board, Jacurutu, is full of hateful folks who don't know
how to fully interact with people.

I'm still very proud of The Quarry but … let's face it; in the end the real best way to sign off would have been with a great big rollicking Culture novel.

Every now and then I get mesmerized by the Polka Joe Show :)
As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Hypatia approaches one.

When there's nothing on, I can always rely on the DVR'd episodes of Namaste Yoga from FitTV. Not only does
it bring out my inner voyeur, but I find the voice cadence and music very relaxing.
Poop is funny.
MetaCugel8262 is not.
