We don't get Showtime, so I would gladly pay for a copy! It's very easy to download from TiVo to VCR.

I don't have the Tivo brand - it's the one from my cable company, but I saw an option "copy to VCR" so it can't be that hard. DH will figure it out this week. He says it's easy, but he said that about fixing the toilet that is now shattered, so we'll see. : How about anyone who wants one send me a tape and $3.85 postage and I'll get you one. That's how I do CD's and it seems to work well.

If someone is uber computer Saavy, they could a: Tivo it, then figure out how to xfer it to their PC *through TV card if one has it* then convert it to AVI so I can DL it from you off of Soulseek.

Ah heck, I do think itll be out on Soulseek or Kazaa the day after it comes on TV

Ah heck, I REALLY should put the birds to bed and go snooze off this allergen induced sinus headache...*stoopid fragrances...should be outlawed I swear..

It's going to be playing a couple of other dates.........April 29th and May 6th, I think. Maybe we'll get Showtime just so I can watch it!

You can watch a 1 minute video preview here:

http://www.sho.com/site/ptbs/topics.do


From this clip, it seems that P & T are huge intactivists....... they are listening to a female doctor talk about the "soft straps" on the circumstrant, and how "with the Gomco clamp there is zero chance of hurting the baby's penis......" (I just have to point out the irony of this statement)

etc. and P & T are in the background saying, "I guess you don't have to secure the baby's arms because he can't punch yet," and "I guess it's not a human rights violation because the straps are soft! Where's Amnesty International!"

"Our task is not to see the future, but to enable it."

I made the mistake of clicking on that video link - I heard "When I do circumcisions, the baby usually tolerates it really...." and I shut it. It hurts me to watch anyone even TALK about it. Did I miss anything interesting? I LOVED the little blurb andout men feeling regret & covering their privates.

Oh, that ROCKED!

I don't agree with them on everything. But they will be my permanent heroes and I can forgive anything else if they kick the out of RIC on prime time Showtime

I'm going to WM today to see how much tapes are. I'll let you know the cost.

It addressed everything - how it's done, does it cause disease, why was it ever started, the foreskins function & the money motive. It spoke to the lady from nocirc, a Dr. from DOC, and talked about restoration. There's plenty of swearing & penis jokes... it's on showtime, so there's no limit, but 99% of the info was right on & it gives a really modern spin to this debate. It showed a number of circs (I was shaking by then - I've never watched one) and showed babies reaction from screaming to sleep & explained that the baby who looks like he's about to go to sleep is in neurologic shock from the trauma.

Excuse the language, but at the end he said it best "The first rule of medicine is do no harm. We've showed that circumcision is F$%^ing bad AND bad for F$%^ing, so to all you penis butchers out there, PUT DOWN THE KNIFE!!!!! STEP AWAY FROM THE BABY!!!! and do no harm!" WooooooooooHooooooooooo!!!!

it sounds as if it was designed to really shake people up. i of course don't have the premium channels so will definitely have to try and get my mother to tape it for me when it comes on again. i checked out the website and it is airing again on Showtime Too tonight at 9pm and on Showtime on the 29th at 10 pm.

Ange. Mama to boys. Yup. All Boys. All Intact. A bunch of other NFL, crunchy credentials too.

I'm afraid to watch it. I love the show and we've rented lots of them off netflix, but I've never watched a circ and I'm afraid to. I did circ my first son (who's now 14) and I just don't know if I can bear to live with those images

I'm going to go buy tapes today & will let everyone who PMed me know the cost via PM. It's looking like it'll be around $6 with priority mail shipping, but I'll PM you once I know for sure. If anyone who Hasn't PMed me yet decides you want one, you'll probably need to send me a VHS cassette in the mail. I'll be in touch later today...
