seattle basic cable is kind of shite.
despite having two pbs stations, univision, azn and a public access channel that rebroadcasts news shows from korea, china, vietnam and japan, it's really quite shite.
my whole cable viewing life i've had the turner channels. you know, tbs, tnt, etc. more recently in the turner bundle (within the last five or six years or so) i've been watching turner classic movies and turner south.
not anymore. while we still have tbs and tnt, the only other turner channels that comcast in seattle carries is cnn.
i fucking hate cnn. not as much as fox news, mind, but it's still utter, useless crap.
oh wait! have i mentioned that not only am i turner networkless (at least the good parts of it) but that i don't have wgn?!??!
let me repeat that, i don't fucking have wgn!$!!!!#@#!@!#@!%#%#@
i'm never going to get to see the cubs play again unless i order a damn cable package. or go to a bar that's got the damn cable package. what if the cubs get the wild card again this year?!??! what am i going to do?!??! (yeah, that'll happen. *eyeroll* we all know that the cubs never win anything.)
also? i won't get to see the edited version of the blues brothers ad infantum which kind of makes me sad.
oh, and those two pbs stations? they're in, like, permenant pledge week mode. i've seen alone in the wilderness more times than i can count now.
maybe i'll just have to get out more. maybe that's why people in this part of the country are such outdoorsy types. (it couldn't be the cascade mountains or anything....har har.)
better yet, i'll get leff to up our netflix account to five out at a time instead of our current three. mwah-haaa-haaa!
