The Military Channel

Can you believe such a thing exists?? It does, and we've been watching excerps in class for the last three days now. So, here's some cool things about the Military Channel.
  1. They play neat abrasive music (ba-da-BUM-ba-da-BUM-ba-da-BUM...ne-ne-ne-NE-ne-ne-ne-NE)
  2. They flash pictures of stuff getting blown up ever 15 seconds (sometimes they'll do two or three in a row if they want to get their point across)
  3. The narrator has a low mysterious voice
  4. They use verbs like "dominating", "striking", "attacking" (nothing passive aggressive like "controlling")
  5. They show tanks 20 feet wide driving through the suburban streets of modern day Germany
  6. They show the full body slam when people parachute out of planes. (You know how Hollywood shows a neat little run as the soldier gently lowers to the ground? That's bunk. The Military Channel shows lots of full belly slaps as troops come down.)
  7. They show military vehicles kicking up enough dust to confuse anyone as they going tearing around.
  8. They have a huge fascination with vehicles running through enough water to cover their tires (or whatever they have).

Yes, the Military Channel is a neat channel. I highly recommend it. If you need ten minutes of straight up abrasion, the Military Channel is a must-see.

Not that I'm an advocate of violence, but I always liked watching the insurgents chuck their molotov-cocktails at unsuspecting passer-by's.

There's just something about watching things blow up. It's facinating.

Kinda like that saying about Kramer from the series "Seinfield":

"It is disguisting, repulsive, and offensive... yet I cannot look away."
