So, staged? Absolutely, positively, 100% for sure. That show angers me beyond angry too, now we get every hillbilly in the Inland Empire coming to our auctions thinking they're going to strike it rich - only to buy someone else's ratty clothes and furniture.

I hate that show.

My guilty television pleasure? iCarly ... my daughter likes that show, and I more often than not catch myself watching it with her.

Don't judge me!
Don't you love the whole TV show effect? Look at the Extreme Couponing show. Now everyone thinks they can do it and some supermarkets are changing their approaches to how they accept coupons so they don't lose money.

Love the music, but the cookie monster vocals wear me down pretty quick.

Every episode of Storage Wars...

Jarrod (interview room): There's some stuff for the store in there. If nothing else, we can scrap the metal and take a huge loss on whatever we're paying.
Brandi (interview room): Jarrod is an idiot if he wants to spend more than $0.15 on a single unit. On the other hand, one of those pop cans might be in good enough shape to keep his balls in, since the mason jar in the pantry is getting a yellowish haze on it.
Darrell (interview room): I think I see a briefcase full of cash in the back; it's actually open and there appears to be at least $10,000 in plain sight. I'm not bidding more than $500 on this.
Barry (interview room): The moose head would be a perfect hood ornament on a 1936 Stutz Bearcat, which I happen to own.

(Auction begins; bidding quickly runs up to $75).

Jarrod: $100!
Brandi: (kicks Jarrod in the taint, then complains about how quickly he falls over)
Auctioneer: $100 going once....$100 going twice.....$125? $125?
Dave: YEEEEEEEEEEEEEUUUUUUUUUUPPPPPPPPPPPP!
Auctioneer: $125, do I hear $150?
Mark (dressed like a cross between a Russian mobster and a pimp): $150,000!

Darrell (interview room): This ******* ******* **** *******, with his money, actually outbidding people.

Auctioneer: Do I hear $151,000? Okay, $150K going once....twice....sold to Mark for $150K, cash only, pay the lady.

Later, Mark is going through the unit.

Mark (digging through mounds of garbage): If this empty can of Pringles has the Mr. Pringle head logo on it, it could be huge money. One of them sold for $13,000 online recently. Once I sell that, I can succeed in having myself dipped in solid gold.

Yeah that's how it goes. Which is why I could do without the drama part and just go straight to the neat stuff, like the 1920's old school penny adult film machine that Barry had.

Speaking of Barry, he reminds me of Rays manager Joe Maddon with Jack Nicholson's voice.

There's a ridiculously large reservoir of hot girls at your disposal. If you don't take full advantage of it, you'll regret it for life.

Pffft. If you've made it this far without taking advantage of it you're not going to suddenly regret it later.

Nielsen's latest TV market ratings released. Columbus has moved up two spots to become the 32nd DMA in the nation, out of 210 total.

For other Ohio-based markets...
  • Cleveland/Akron/Canton is still 18th.
  • Cincinnati fell two spots to 35th.
  • Dayton fell one spot to 63rd.
  • Toledo fell four spots to 74th.
  • Youngstown is up one to 110th.
  • Wheeling, WVa/Steubenville rose one to 158th.
  • Lima is unchanged at 201.
  • My hometown, Zanesville, is unchanged at 203rd.

The truly important subtext to take out of this:
We just pulled ahead of Cincinnati.

At 17 I was 6 ft, 110 pounds. Girls didn't look at me, they looked through me. Sadly, not everyone can take advantage of their youth... Luckily I made up for it later...
