This Post, Like Oz, Is Cocksucktacular!

The final monologue of Oz perfectly describes why I love the show, and why you should watch it:

So. What have we learned? What's the lesson for today? For all the neverending days and restless nights in Oz?

That morality is transient? That virtue cannot exist without violence? That to be honest is to be flawed? That the giving and taking of love both debases and elevates us? That God, or Allah, or Yahweh has answers to questions we dare not even ask?

The story is simple. A man lives in prison, and dies. How he dies? That's easy. The who and the why is the complex part. The human part. The only part worth knowing.


The following is an amusing snippet from my attempt to get Rob Thomas to replace the Season One Recap on UPN with something that's actually, you know, a recap:

Me: The advantage of the AOL clip, of course, is that it comes with narration by Kristen to really make it into a story.
Rob: I like the Kristin narration as well.
Me: I find it kind of amusing that even *you* misspell Kristen's name sometimes. It was actually spelled "Kristin" on the DVD page for weeks (maybe months!) before they finally changed it. I think "Kristin" is the more common spelling, at least among celebrities (Kristin Scott Thomas, Kristin Davis, Kristin Kreuk...).
Rob: I misspelled Kristen's name? Really? Hmmm. I do know how to spell it, I swear.

And now, 20 random things about me:
