Attention all you wood-be Svengali's and estrus-oozing Mati Hari's. We collected the best pickup lines overheard at the Cross Street Meet Market during the '97 Cross Street Festival and tempered them with the timeless advice of vintage 50s how-to mating and dating films like Dating Do's and Don'ts, Junior Prom and Going Steady all as a public cervix to Baltimore singles. We even got the Martha Stewart of Dating Etiquette, legendary local bachelorette Chastity Darling (You've no doubt witnessed her shameless flirting at her habitual weekend roost ,The Club Charles), to host our special. From "Do you have mirrors in your pockets, 'cause I can see myself in your pants?" to "Didn't we meet before, at the methadone clinic?" we've got the best and worst pickup lines for you to gag on or put to use (or abuse).
WHAT IS ATOMIC TV?Short Answer:Atomic TV is "A Media Maxi-Pad absorbing the continual flow of Pop Culture." It is bio-degradable and thus may be flushed down any toilet.Long Answer:ATOMIC TV is the red-haired, freckle-faced stepchild of Baltimore Public Access TV's programming family, a breech baby painfully squeezed out of the birthing canal of that negligent mother we call City Cable. Cloven-hoofed and horn-rimmed, this Hell-spawned birth defect had its butt cheeks dutifully slapped by the attending programming authorities upon its debut in 1997 before the bloody mess was handed back to its deadbeat biological fathers, TOM WARNER & SCOTT HUFFINES, its dangling umbilical cord quickly hooked up to coaxial cable for instant reception into the cable community. Often imitated (see LOST AND FOUND VIDEO), rarely surpassed in ineptitude, it remains another chapter in Baltimore's cultural Hall of Shame, alongside our Holy Trinity heritage of Homicide, Heroin and STDs. An archaic medium in these fast-paced days of High Tech Vodcasting and Broadband Video Streaming, it still has its appeal to our peers in the Great American Economic Underclass. In other words...it's free! It airs on Baltimore City Cable Channel 75. Despite Freedom of Information requests by the public, its exact broadcast time has not yet been declassified by the authorities. Stay tuned and stay the course. If you don't have Tivo, we suggest staying up 24/7 to insure you don't miss a thing.
