Is it Live? Or is it Skinemax...

It happened again. Every time it's the same old story... they don't tell you until it's almost over. You're going through the usual motions and finally they tell you at the last minute. You know... if only they'd have revealed it when they should have, you'd have enjoyed the whole thing a bit more. Yep, it was a free HBO/Showtime/Cinemax weekend again.

It ran from Friday to Tuesday, and I only found out about it Monday afternoon. Buncha frellnicks...

So anyway, after I'd watched 24, I started flipping through the free channels and settled on something that must'a been terrifically good, I don't even remember what it was. But there is one thing I'm sure of, it was on Cinemax. How do I know this? Well, because at 10:00 when the movie was over, well... the Web of Desire began.

It was at this point that I remembered what they used to call this channel back in college, and they didn't name it Skinemax for nothing. Being poor college students we never did pay for any of that kinda channel, but there were some that did. I'd completely forgotten about the content until Monday.

So there I was, sitting here at the comp checking the usual blogs and bboards, when there it was, soft core porn on the TV. Being someone who can actually rub two brain cells together, it was an insult to my intellect to see what passed for content. My brain contemplated what it was watching and hearing and encouraged me to turn off this drivel. However... there was another part of my brain that kicked in at this point and advised that I shouldn't be quite so hasty. The conversation went something like this...

"Oh, my gad. That passes for dialogue? It's such an affront to any intelligence that it's hardly watchable."

"Duuuuuude, those are naked ladies!"

"Oh, come on man. The female form is a work of art that is to be appreciated and shouldn't be made into something to be oogled."

"Duude. NAKED. LADIES."

It was at this point that Ron White chimed in. You know the line, the one where he says, "Back me up on this guys, if you've seen one naked lady, you want to see the rest naked too." Damn that Ron White and his redneck wisdom...

So in the spirit of Herman's Head, I compromised. I watched until 10:30... :P

When they bother to advertise them...


Oh... and Starz is the best of the freebies.
