It's Official: The new receiver box looks like HAL

I just got DirecTV installed in my room yesterday and the blue light circle in the middle reminds me of HAL from 2001. Sure it's not red... or black... or talks... but it sure as hell reminds me of him.

It's fun as hell pretending to talk to it though:

Me: HAL, turn on the porn channels.
DirecTV Box: I'm afraid I can't do that, LMP.

Me: Dammit, DirecTV Box, why won't you record Darkman for me?
DirecTV Box: LMP, this conversation can serve no purpose anymore. Goodbye.

Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer do.
I'm half crazy all for the love of you.
It won't be a stylish marriage,
I can't afford a carriage.
But you'll look sweet upon the seat of a bicycle built for two

Remember to cover it up when you masturbate.

I got the same freaking box a few days ago and I hate it!
It is NOTHING compared to the older HD TiVo unit I had before. Some of the old features are not included on this one.
