Suddenlink ripoff

You know, I wouldn't be so upset over this if Suddenlink was more honest and forthright about this situation. Six of the supposedly new replacement channels were channels we already had: FXX, Hallmark Mysteries & Movies, UP, OWN, Great American Country, and MGM. GSN was a channel we used to have until Suddenlink dropped it some months ago (the rationale at the time being that not enough people were watching it). ESPN Goal Line/Buzzer Beater broadcasts one day a week, and only during football and basketball season; how is that a worthwhile replacement channel? Out of the remaining channels, only the Smithsonian Channel offers something worthwhile, though I don't see myself ever watching it. It is obvious that Suddenlink has replaced the expensive Viacom channels with: 1. Channels they already had agreements with. and 2. The cheapest channels they could possibly find. Suddenlink will be saving a ton of money by doing this, but will they be passing these savings on to their customers? Absolutely not. Suddenlink is a greedy company only interested the almighty dollar. Suddenlink on our side? Yeah, right.  (Oct 3, 2014 | post #7)

Arbys closing

That's no big loss. If you want Arby's the one in MacArthur in the Little General is far superior.  (Jul 22, 2014 | post #11)

WV State Fair

I only go there when they have someone I want to see in concert. That hasn't happened since Alice Cooper in 2011. These past two years their concert lineup has been crap. I hope they do better next year.  (Aug 13, 2013 | post #19)

six flags finally coming!

Ha! I heard that rumor when I was a kid some 20 years ago. I didn't believe it then and I don't now.  (Mar 26, 2013 | post #27)

Plaza Mall

I used to love that fountain as a kid. We'd get something to eat from the deli at Acme's and take it over to the mall and eat by the fountain  (Dec 28, 2012 | post #6)

Five Guys

I went there yesterday. It was a madhouse but they are doing a fantastic job. I had to wait for over 30 minutes for my order but considering the insane number of people there I thought they did very well. It's not cheap, but you won't find a better burger in Beckley. If you've never been there before, one regular order of fries will be enough for 2-3 people (I can't imagine what a large order would look like).  (Oct 17, 2012 | post #28)

horrible waitress at texas steakhouse

The last time I tried to eat there we stood around for ten minutes and no one ever offered to seat us. The place was not at all crowded, and multiple employees walked by us as if we were invisible. I'll never go there again.  (Apr 20, 2012 | post #3)

Harper Road McDonald's

No dumbass, traffic was backed up from the traffic light into the parking lot and was at a standstill. It took some 45 minutes to physically leave the restaurant due to the backed up traffic.  (Feb 19, 2012 | post #17)

Iowa Caucus is only 4 days away!

It's still 2011 and I'm already sick of the 2012 election.  (Dec 30, 2011 | post #9)

Harper Road McDonald's

Maybe this day was an anomaly but there was literally nowhere you could park where you wouldn't get caught in that mess. I've never seen anything like that anywhere.  (Dec 24, 2011 | post #10)
