I'm starting to feel the same way about South Park now, but for an opposite reason. For about two or three years now I've had a "OK that was a good episode and all but I don't think I'll have the desire to see it ever again" feeling about South Park. This season so far though it's been "OK that sucked and I don't want to see it ever again" :(

South Park's becoming a real snooze as of late :(

liquidstatik Apr 15th, 2008 05:00 PM

south park always sucked too, though :(

liquidstatik Apr 15th, 2008 05:00 PM

dude i think i just hate tv idk

MetalMilitia Apr 15th, 2008 05:02 PM

Southpark is also very much like the Simpsons in that they've made so many episodes it's inevitably going to start sucking eventually.

Pub Lover Apr 15th, 2008 05:03 PM

Are we even in the target audience for The Simpsons? Also, maybe South Park, but that one is a stretch.

Yeah TV sucks >:

Since Arrested Development got cancelled I haven't found a single show that I'm eager to regularly watch. A friend of mine got me into Lost recently when we rented the first season but I hear even that's already starting to get gay

liquidstatik Apr 15th, 2008 05:06 PM

I can't stand lost, my friends been watchin it online alot. It's the most boring, uneventful show i've ever seen. :(

Pub Lover Apr 15th, 2008 05:07 PM

Lost only starting to get gay? HA!

OK well I like it at least, more because of the characterization than the magical-spooky-island part of it. :(

I still watch SP religiously but it's seriously starting to get old. That and ATHF

but ill watch anything so what do i know

MetalMilitia Apr 15th, 2008 05:11 PM

The problem with Lost is there isn't an ending (I read they're planing 12 seasons), or rather anything which happens in the current episodes will likely have no bearing any the show's conclusion. It's also annoying to me how they're always attaching significance to stupid things; each episode is basically just a string of random events set to a discordant cello soundtrack to make people say "OHHH THIS IS SO MYSTERIOUS I WONDER WHAT THE REAL STORY IS" when the joke is there probably isn't one. If you look back at the previous major plot twists almost none of them have any significance.

That's the thing though. Because there is very little in the way of actual plot development they can keep going forever with stupid back-stories and sub-plots that supposedly "cleverly" link the characters together, which is fine... except for none of the relationships ever actually advance the major plot so it ends up being an exercise in pointlessness.

Every episode of House follows the same formula. MYSTERIOUS ILLNESS > FAILED ATTEMPT #1/WRONG DIAGNOSIS > BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD > FAILED ATTEMPT #2/WRONG DIAGNOSIS > BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD > "WE'RE RUNNING OUT OF TIME" > SUDDEN EPIPHANY IN THE LAST 8 MINUTES OF THE SHOW > SUCCESS, HOUSE YOU'RE A GENIUS

I really like cigars, GW's a fruit.

I've actually comme into contact with an Opus X.

WILLIE

Sethomas Apr 16th, 2008 01:19 AM

Fathom: what are your favorite cigars? Well, I guess it'd be better to ask if you were to that point yet where you have favorites.

I think I'd had some "aromatics"* before then, but the first time I had a truly "good" cigar it was a Cuban Romeo y Julieta. I thought it was so good, even with no basis of comparison, that I kept buying the Dominican-made R&J's when I got back to the States. One time my cousin was watching an episode of CSI and they said "Dominican's are just as good" as if it were scientific fact that terroir has no effect on the tobacco leaf. If they'd said something similar about wine, half of Europe would probably have cut off diplomatic relations until the script writers had been executed.

*In my observation, the way you get a cigar snob who rejects the idea of a flavored cigar to smoke one is this: add $7 to the price and call it an "aromatic".

Guitar Woman Apr 16th, 2008 01:19 AM

I think I've mentioned the fact that I love cigars before, I'm glad we're in agreement on this.

Sethomas Apr 16th, 2008 01:26 AM

Oh shit, I guess you might know cigars if you talked about a $50 one. I wasn't trying to sound like a dick with "if you were to the point...", I just didn't know your vantage point.

I think the highest rated cigar I've had would have been the Cuban Montecristo I had my sister smuggle back, I think she paid around £12 UK but obviously it'd fetch a small fortune on the domestic black market.

While she was kind enough to get me one in an aluminum tubo, I didn't discover until the New Year's ball had dropped that she'd opened it for a preview smell and it needed to be re-humidified. Still, that was one powerful experience.

liquidstatik Apr 16th, 2008 01:35 AM

cigars are gross, dudes

Asila Apr 16th, 2008 01:38 AM

Seth, did you really like the Romeo y Julieta? I've seen that at the local supermarket and thought about trying it, but I don't know a lot about cigars so I never did.

Sethomas Apr 16th, 2008 02:00 AM

Yeah, I've at the very least grown comfortable buying them. Obviously they're not as good as the Cubans because the Dominican soil isn't as rich, but they still manage to fit in a great deal of flavor in a very well-crafted binding.

I'll justify my premium name-dropping with the fact that I really enjoy El Mejor maduros, for which I generally pay no more than $2 a cigar. The problem with them is that the wrapper falls apart as the maduro leaf soaks saliva much worse than any other cigar type I've noticed, so it begins to fall apart and look nasty/be a pain in the ass toward the end. When R&J started making maduros, as I prayed they would for years, I at first was amazed at how the better construction improved the maduro experience but every now and then I'll run into the same problem after having paid four times the price as the El Mejors (albeit with more subtle overtones added to the experience). For the distinctly Romeo y Julieta experience, I think that their Viejo line is the best in the American market. I've only seen, I think, their 1876 line in places other than good tobacconists, so I'd guess that's what you saw. It's a good line to be sure, but I'd recommend their others for the fact that once you begin talking about cigars that cost no less than $6 for a decent size, tacking on 50 cents makes a huge improvement. I guess that has to do with "if our name is on it, it shouldn't cost less than..." marketing, but I was impressed when someone pointed out to me that Arturo Fuente has some very good values right beside their super-premium lines. (Their Curly Top, or whatever misnomer they gave it, only costs like $2.50 at most tobacconists.)

ElPila666 Apr 16th, 2008 02:12 AM

i saw in movies that baseball players chew up tobacco, and they splited like gum, i wonder what it taste like

Asila Apr 16th, 2008 02:12 AM

So, if I was going to make the extra trip to a tobacconist, which cigar would be a good one to start out with?

I'm sure I'd drive all the ladies crazy, though

Sethomas Apr 16th, 2008 02:28 AM

Well, I really don't know because that depends on all kinds of psychological analysis I can't do well over the internet.

If you want something basic and won't cost you a lot to introduce you into the world of cigars, I'd probably go with the Arturo Fuente I recommended because it's good, it's hand-made, and it's cheap. It will start you with a basis of comparison as you work your way upwards, if nothing else.

If you want to enter the world of cigars with the pomp and circumstance you'd expect from the next British monarchial coronation, then maybe get a $9 (or so, depending on the market around you) Acid 1 by Drew Estates. Drew Estates is the brand responsible for the trend I mentioned where you take a flavored cigar and re-market it, but their Acid 1 is distinctly marked as "non-aromatic" as opposed to everything else in their Acid line. I don't know why, since I can't imagine any of its flavors coming from any substance that wouldn't kill the tobacco plant outright, but it's literally a candy bar that you puff. It might give you a false impression of what a classicist's cigar would be like, since they're nothing in common, but it'll at least serve as a gateway into the art of burning money in the most literal sense possible without offending federal agencies*.

That being said, I'm the type who rotates between mere puffing and the "french inhale". If your lungs find out that you're smoking an Acid 1, it will punish you severely by connoitering with your stomach and causing you to throw up.

*Have I posted this picture of me in the past month? Maybe? It'll be a fine tie-in with my admonition to Gus about Scav Hunt as the 2008 list release is mere weeks away.

Hi. I'm Seth. Do we know each other? While I always figured I'd eventually see a "Chicks in Vader Helmets" website, I didn't expect it to come to me through a Myspace friend request. All the same I'd normally ignore it, but since Vincennes is probably close enough (is it? I forget) that I could conceivably take you to dinner and brag about it to everyone I've ever met who's watched Star Wars or has the internet, I figured I'd at least get my chit/chat on first.

Hugs and kisses,
