You can tell by the song in your heart and the pungent aroma in your
nostrils: National Catfish Month is here! Every August, a nation drops
to its knees before the altar of the slimy fish-god. Children stay up
late hoping to catch a glimpse of the Phantom Catfish making his
rounds, and thousands of the whiskered, scaleless bottom-feeders are
ritually slain and eaten in a bloody orgy of bilge and batter. Here's
how the Pinnacle PCTV To Go can make your National Catfish Month celebrations even fishier:
Go lets you watch your fishing shows in HD on any PC anywhere in the
world. You haven't seen noodling until you've seen noodling in
high-definition. Bring your laptop out to the lake with you for total
hi-def catfish overload!
Even better, PCTV To Go's PVR-style
functions let you pause and rewind to savor the "money shots" - those
moments of supreme catfish ecstasy when the gasping, thrashing beast is
hauled into the boat.
Not compatible with Macs - which is great, because Mac people hate catfish people. So screw them!
Easy wireless setup gives you more time for eating, catching, thinking about, and drawing pictures of catfish.
When somebody scoffs because the PCTV To Go has no HDMI, bet them ten catfish that component cables carry an HD signal just fine. You'll win - then, hey, free catfish!
Take your PCTV To
Go unit, turn the Wi-Fi antennae so they jut out to the side, and glue
on a couple of googly eyes. Presto! You've got yourself a whimsical
replica catfish head.
Got a Jewish friend who can't eat catfish because catfish aren't kosher (Leviticus 11:10)? Give him or her a Pinnacle PCTV To Go so he or she doesn't feel left out of all the fun.
Record the 2007 Miss Catfish Pageant for your personal archives. Our money's on Miss Tennessee again this year.
If you're pretty handy with technology stuff, you can offer to help other people with the PCTV To Go's tricky Windows Media Center setup, in exchange for - you guessed it - sweet, sweet catfish.
Use the Pinnacle PCTV To Go as bait on your next fishing trip. Catfish cannot resist the convenience of wireless, HD TV on their PCs.
We dunno, trade it for catfish or something? Sell it and use the money to buy catfish? We're running out of creative steam here.
get the idea. National Catfish Month is the time to cook catfish every
which way but loose: fry it, broil it, bake it in bread, put it on
pizza, whip it into a smoothie. But as delicious as those ideas are,
we'll take our catfish with a side of Pinnacle PCTV To Go.

You're a real renaissance player. You'll draw a natural two-pair, wrestle a gigantic python, swirl a hot cowbabe around in your wine glass, and roll home in a totally sweet ZZ Top-looking rod - a typical Wednesday, pretty much. And you'll look sharp doing it in this elegantly totemic collage of everything Mom warned you about. Degeneracy never looked so good.
<img style="padding-right: 10px; clear: left;" src="http://www.woot.com/Images/sale/JobyC-logo.jpg" align="left">This shirt was designed by: L.A.-based tattoo artist and garment designer <a href="http://vertigolab.com/">Joby Cummings</a>. He draws on skin at <a href="http://artandsoul.net">Art & Soul Tattoo Co.</a> and he's done fashion work for swank labels like Scanty, BCBG, Vertigo Paris, Christian Audigier and True Religion. About his personal creative recipe, he says, "Let us start with a generous helping of digital abstract meets Big Daddy Roth on a bed of stirred Picasso a la Mark Ryden ladled in Sailor Jerry's finest dressing with a light garnish of Issey Miyake, place all ingredients in a drum machine, mix well, serve chilled." In other words, he's way cooler than you, or us, or anybody we know.
Wear this shirt to: demonstrate the dual hedonistic-yet-sensitive nature of your rich lust for life.
Don't wear this shirt to: church, unless you go to some kind of greaser speakeasy dragstrip church. And if you do, tell us where it is.
This shirt tells the world: "Hey, check out all this masculinity that I'm totally secure in." We call this color: Do It Up Brown.
All right, stop. Cultivate and listen. Ty is back with a brand new edition. Something grabbed ahold of him tightly, turned like a corkscrew daily and nightly - and the result is the brand-new Ty Caton 2005 Field Blend Red, available here for the very first time anywhere. After a nose as oaky as Pinocchio's, it rocks your palate like a vandal with flavors of black currant, blackberry and plum. The blend is mostly Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah, but Petite Sirah, Merlot, and Malbec also get a look in. Like all Ty Caton wines, it was crafted with sustainable methods and painstaking attention to detail. Why? Because anything less than the best is a felony.
If you're still trying to figure out where you've heard of this Ty Caton guy before, let the Ty Caton 2003 TyTanium refresh your memory. Back for another go-round, this fan favorite was one of the best-received offerings in Wine.Woot history, and it's not hard to see why, or smell why, or taste why. Tantalizing aromas of black fruit, anise, and cocoa are just the beginning. On the palate, each sip is like a little velvet bonbon bursting with ripe, dark cherry and blackberry flavors for a sweet, dense mid-palate bacchanal. Fine tannins whisk the finish away on clouds of vanilla and chocolate, and it's just, just so...excuse us a moment, please. Yes, we are crying. But don't worry, they're tears of joy.
Ahem. Now, before we got overwhelmed by the transcendent beauty of TyTanium, we were going to tell you about the third vino in this triumvirate, the Ty Caton 2003 Merlot. While it might not seem as sexy as the brand new Field Blend or the crowd-pleasing TyTanium, it stands second to no wine in its bright, smooth richness and all-American cherry, vanilla, and blueberry notes. Don't even dare ask if it's executed with a dedication to old-world craft and a respect for its own unique character. If it says "Ty Caton", you know it is.
Not only do the Caton people mix up an awful fine grape-hooch, they back up their action with talk. On our discussion forums, their articulate, approachable representative - known only as "Winegirl" - has become one of us, sticking around for wine chat long after she was obligated to do so. Yep, that Caton operation is class all the way down the line. Buy up now before they realize they're too good for Wine.Woot.
