Its 3am

At this time of morning 5 years or so ago, if I were actually on a computer, I was either drunk, looking for some free porn, or both. Instead tonight, I'm taking a break from writing a paper and updating my blog. In the process of my work, I channel surf a bit, mainly from the History Channel, to ESPN, to Comedy Central, to MSNBC. Tonight, I stayed on Comedy Central past the dreaded 3am mark, when the infomercials start. Now, I might be one of the oldest people in the world to watch Comedy Central, since I am actually disgusted by the Girls Gone Wild commercials. I mean, seriously, who buys those things? I know a friend who did once, but it was Bickle, and he was/is dumb. Besides, that was like 8 years ago.

I actually feel dirty, just seeing the commercials. I don't feel sorry for these vapid, sperm dumpster girls who claim to be taken advantage of later on when there parents see them, I just feel dirty.

On top of that, who actually believes that a pill can make your penis bigger? Or wants to text message a "hot" girl who doesn't really exist? Also, for the love of god, do we need the constant barrage of advertisement for Viagra and Cialis and every other pill that will give me a hard-on years after my heart cannot fully support the extra blood flow? I actually long for the days of USA Network's "Up All Night" series, with its constant advertising for phone sex lines. At least there was some honesty there, you knew you weren't getting the real dirty ones like you found inside your uncle's pornos (not that I ever found or called any).

I may sound like a prude right now, but honestly, I think this comes from our obsession that sex is dirty and shameful rather than an overabundance of it out there. That's just my opinion, though, I could be wrong.

Update: I landed on G4, watched Cinematech: Nocturnal Emissions for about ten minutes and have concluded that the Japanese are very strange people (who make AMAZING game shows). I've never seen so many schoolgirl outfits in a video game trailer.
