directv seems to be back on track now after a slew of them which were more annoying than anything else (the horse ones). which is hard. i really don't get annoyed -- after the serenity wears through completely it goes to righteous indignation, and it does take sustained crap to get it going i must say. with advertising it is that i think that money could go to r & d or salaries.
go daddy also never gets it right and i don't know if it is intentional or not. and that häagen-dazs one. fingernails on a blackboard -- and she sounds like she has an adam's apple the size of a chicago 16-inch softball. jesus fucken haploid christ on a golf cart with an open alcoholic beverage (rum & coke) . . . just another thing that makes me want to start my own internet service provider.
there is a medication in the united states and perhaps still canada similar to vicodin but with faster onset of effects and other properties that make people like them even more that is stamped with the company name, norco, on the tablets. people don't say vikes, or hydro (no! hydromorphone (dilaudid) is"hydro"), or hydrocodone, they call them norcos. brett favre was a big fan. i noticed a difference for physician-supervised use when i had broken toes back in the day from someone dropping a 50 kilo box of telephone directories on my foot. hydrocodone does work for chronic pain also, but when they stop working they stop working -- time to break out the morphine or nicomorphine or dextromoramide or piritramide or whatever. the faster onset of any analgesic will make it more helpful for breakthrough type pain, meaning that this property of the medication is important, as is the route of administation -- swallowing then go to sublingual and intranasal, then the three main types of shots and/or a pump. the euphoria and pain relief are aspects of one and the same thing, so they will never be able to find this new philosophers' stone.
earlier this week on a listserv i wrote down a veritable typhoon of vituperation about obnoxious advertisements, especially some recent ones by directv ("did u know that directv starts with the letter d?" did u know that u are a dupe of the post-modern techno-industrial megastate?) jesus christ. gag me with a spoon) and got this response, shared with permission:
Ahahaha! Bravo! For the newer people, imagine a combination of John Houseman, Morgan Freeman, and captain von Trapp saying "like gag me with a spoon" etc. Remember to start sentences with "like," too.
My wife was certainly the exemplar of the Valley Girl when I met her and after. Our kids really like to hear it on home movies we took from back then. "Grody to the max" is a favorite saying at our house. But she is actually from Norco, out near West Covina, so is she still a Valley Girl?
so there is a town named norco, which is apparently a portmanteau of north and corona, another city in the area. i don't think they make the sacred medicine there, but if i were the chamber of commerce i would get on it post haste. and keep a jar of norcos up at the counter.
