    In college, we had an apartment roommate we didn't particularly like. He received Slim Whitman albums from Columbia House at the rate of three a month. He could not figure out why.

    My Columbia House membership was a running gag on my old college radio show; we'd do a segment where someone would call in and be forced to choose a CD from one of the crappy discs I got suckered with because I forgot to send it back. When the choices are Temple of the Dog or Soul Asylum, the only answer is "pain".
