If They Only Knew

I had a really funny thought as I was pulling into my parking stall at work today. What if for some reason, one of my bosses decided to go into my coat pocket and pull out my iPod? And they looked at the screen and it said "Thug Love"--Bone Thugs feat. 2Pac--Art of War. (Sound of shotgun cocking). What kind of reaction would that garner? I have a feeling they would either look at my neon whiteness and laugh. Or possibly realize that I don't "fit in" and make up some bullshit economic excuse to can me. Or, more likely, cower in fear around me and shield their daughters.

As an aside to an aside, I watched "Archer" on FX last night. I saw two episodes. It was sort of funny. Not laugh out loud mostly, but I would give it another chance. For those who aren't aware it is another adult cartoon, containing partial cartoon nudity and crude language. The story line revolves around the characters being spies at a MI-6-type agency. As an example of a story line, two of the male spies were fighting in the locker room and their penises touched (not in "camera" view.) and there were all sorts of gay jokes. Since Sports Bottles whole life is one big gay joke, he would like it. My wife will be pretty happy if it ends up making the DVR list along with South Park and Family Guy. I give it a 3 out of 5, but I would probably watch it if I was bored and stumbled across it again.

i think Archer is pretty classic, but I am also a pretty big fan of the creators first Adult Swim show Sealab 2021 and, to a lesser extent, the follow-up Frisky Dingo. The sexual harassment case "He touched my penis... With his penis," was comical; the show made my DVR when they sneak-previewed it after an episode of Sunny last fall... there is also a show that starts in March on FX called Vindicated which looks kind of badass, starring Timothy Olyphant

I think Frisky Dingo is genius... The only problem is there's a lot going on in the show and the episodes are only 15 minutes, so if you only watched one a day, real easy to get lost

That show with Timothy Olyphant is called "Justified" I thought that it looked good too. I doubt I will end up watching it though much like almost every other show on FX "Breaking Bad", "Nip/Tuck", "Damages", "Sons of Anarchy" all of which are supposed to be tits. I keep meaning to watch them but it is pretty hard to fit in an hour long show into the DVR rotation when your spouse will only watch things that E! News tells her is good. I'm really goign to make an effort on Breaking Bad. I've seen it once and it was pretty good. Season doesn't start until like March I think.

Sons of Anarchy, Rescue Me, The Shield, Damages, Nip/Tuck --- all great FX shows.

i watched the first few episodes of breaking bad and it was pretty good, i believe it is on AMC another show that is supposed to be awesome on AMC is Mad Men... I think I only record 6 hours worth of TV off of network television a week and all the rest is off of FX, etc. I hope they don't spend too much money wondering why they don't get the ratings they used to
