Much angst was generated among TV watchers recently with the consummation of the unholy alliance between Comcast and NBC Universal. This new corporate oligarchy, dubbed NBCUniversal, rolled out a new logo recently that dispensed with the iconic NBC peacock. Many expressed concern that this was to be the new logo for the NBC network. Even Brian Williams seemed perturbed by the loss of the peacock. Turns out all the worry is over nothing. The NBCUniversal logo, which is awful, is nothing more than corporate branding meant more for internal use than external marketing. The NBC stations that had been using the peacock (NBC, MSNBC, CNBC) will still have it, so fear not Brian. So now that everyone's blood pressure can come down a few points, I thought it would be nice to take a look at the hi
I'm always thrilled when any of my content generates a lot of interest from the inter-tubes community, but there's been a recent trend that I find a little...disturbing.

I have no experience in the television industry, but I have to think that keeping hardcore pornography off the Disney Channel can't be all that hard (no pun intended). Maybe it's just a matter of putting a piece of duct tape over the ACTIVATE PORN button on the big control board for the station feed. Seriously though, kids these days are so damn spoiled. Back in my day, I got tendinitis in my neck by craning it every which way to see through the scrambled Cinemax cable signal. Now all you have to do is sit through a crappy episode of Handy Manny and they just throw the porn at you. Kind of takes the fun out of it if you ask me. Alright, maybe it doesn't.
