Broken Internets/Killer Teabaggers on Crack

It’s not a truck, it’s a series of tubes.  Very fragile glass tubes, and sometimes they break.

In the course of doing the so-called “upgrade” they’ve been bragging about for the last 2 months on TV commercials and in the junk mail that relentlessly jams up my postbox, my cable company broke the internets.  I at least have a connection (for now), but wow: to describe it as “slow” would be a classic understatement.  It’s like being on dialup again, without the little beepbeepbeep and static sound effects.

My connection speed has been slowly grinding to a penultimate halt for awhile now.  I suspect this is by design, a little “reminder” to any recalcitrant laggards still on “High Speed” that they might want to think about an upgrade to the new “High-Speed On Steroids”.  Maybe the broken internet was the virtual Horse’s Head in the bed: Nice connectivity you got there — be a shame if anything were to happen to it. 

Johnny Fontane, pick up the courtesy phone!  You’re hired!

In other news, last week I came across a trailer for the movie “Red State” that opens in September.  It appears to be a Tarantino-esque romp based on some cult like the Westboro Baptist nuts, or maybe killer teabaggers on crack… I can’t be sure.  I post, you decide:

The horror, the horror.

    hi JJ…I’m definitely going to have to see that movie. But since Tarantino recommends it so highly, I think I’ll wait until it comes out on video… 😉

    Simon – Haha, what a coincidence, I just came back from your place.

    Personally, I love Tarantino movies, but I don’t like movie theatres so I also probably won’t be seeing it til it comes out on video.

    It looks freaking scary!!! 😯 I want to have my dog close by when I watch it!

    I definitely want to see that movie. Looks pretty freaky but sadly somewhat believable.

    Beijing – It looks like the Phelps clan run amok on ‘roids {{{shudder}}}

    Omg I never. What the hell was that trailer all about. Um.

    I need to see that movie. It looks like more fun in the theater than Snakes on a Plane.
