Rome is the mob.



We picked up cable when we dropped DSL because my wife works at home and DSL was simply not fast enough for her nees. One of the things that came with our hundreds of new channels was a few months free of the Starz movie channels.

I'm REALLY digging their new series "Spartacus: Blood and Sand." It's a mix of golden era sword and sandal pictures, NC 17 cable shows like "Deadwood," cheesy guilty pleasure broadcast shows such as "Hercules" or "Xena"and modern movies like "300" with it's comic book vibe.

It's cheesy, over the top and sometimes really, really stupid. But the actors all look like they're having a good time, the action scenes are crackerjack and it's got a light vibe to it despite all the sex, violence and melodrama.

Two Wormer thumbs up!

Death to Comcast!

On the other hand, glad to see you're still around. Miss ya!

Comcast, Cox, TimeWarner (no relation to Wormer) are all the devil. But their internet services are decent. Isn't there something about monopolies being bad in some legislation?

Here I had assumed you had been killed by one of those roving gangs of gladiators Oregon is known for.

If there's scantily-clad Lucy Lawless, I don't care if it's cheesy like cheddar.

I agree with RG about Lucy Lawless.

Did you hear her on Wait Wait Don't Tell Me last month?

Hails guys! I run a underground tattoo supply business in New York. Previously I bought all tattoo stuff at wholesale prices but my supplier committed suicide (yeah, hard to believe) so I'm trying to find a reliable tattoo equipment company (better online one) to buy tattoo equipment from. Here is an example of what I am interested in: Tattoo Equipment. Thanks in advance for all tips folks! PM me or drop me some lines at: triple6tattoo@hotmail.com
