Where can one go for satisfaction? Attorney General's office? Better Business bureau? S.H.I.E.L.D.? The Just League of America? League of Extraordinary Gentlemen? 6 news call for help? I'm not sure any of those exist or if they do they most likely won't have jurisdiction here in Cumberland. Why do I need an intervention of a mythical mystical magnitude? Well there can only be one answer. Comcast.
Jenni and I are again reduced to having to look at and talk to each other, or find our amusement in printed word form. Oh, sure there is the smaller "crt tube" moving phosphor delivery device in the sleep chamber for squinting at; with its archaic two point front projection of audible content or the still even smaller "monitor" in the World HQ. But since neither of those receive a Digital signal they are exempt from this current battle-royale!
The Box! There-in lies the Problem.
Did you know that Comcast can send an autonomous multi-celled organism to your cable reception location on the weekend? It is rarely done as these organisms require advanced or accelerated remuneration at the Cable Conglomerates expense. Well, ultimately at the end user/viewers expense, but still at considerable inconvenience to the Entertainment delivery megalomonster. Would you further entertain the proposition that there are still two days in a "weekend" cycle? Now that I have you readily suspending your disbelief, and thinking outside the cable-box here comes the blow the shock the point where I might lose you. Comcast will send this organism on a Sunday. No really, I do not fabricate an alternate reality here or "Jump the Shark" is to scheduled to happen here at the chuckpace.com
world HQ tomorrow. I will no doubt take some pictures of the momentous event, I wouldn't be too surprised to see some of my friends and neighbors documenting the event as well. Heck, some of them might be seen scrambling to get to work thinking that they missed their alarms, and lost a day off.
I am so hoping to not have to do a "Big Cable Company Commercial" for dish network or Direct TV soon. But it might be my chance to meet Ed Begley Jr. If my next post is in this vein I may have to call Anthony Kiritsis for resolution counseling. I here that Hellboy and the League of Extraordinary Gents are tied up right now.
