As a matter of course, I rank Logo right up there with BET & Lifetime (Golden Girls reruns aside as that shit’s going to be funny forevah) as a niche channel with below average offerings catering to the lowest common denominator. However, I’m really looking forward to Wednesday’s premiere of Sordid Lives: The Series.

I grew up in a small town with women like these. When my friend Patterson took me to see the film version of Sordid Lives at the gay film festival a few years back it was like watching old home movies. I will definitely be tuning in on Wednesday night.

Now Time Warner’s just #$%@ing with me.

Shortly after nearly pushing my fragile little mind over the brink by moving MSNBC (Rachel, where are you?) from 56 to 28, Time Warner jacked me again today with a software upgrade to the cable Guide & DVR features.

Most of my scheduled recordings were deleted. The few that remained were sufficiently screwed, so that instead of recording only new episodes of shows, they picked up every rerun on every channel. I came home to a DVR full of “Stargate: Atlantis” & “Law & Order: Criminal Intent” & “Rock of Love 2.”

Don’t you judge me.

I’ve got it half-ass sorted out now downstairs, I think, but the upstairs DVR (again with the judging) is still hosed.

This, obviously, was the most important thing that happened in Kansas City today, as it affected me. Me.
