Twisting TV As Entertainment
Listening to:Celestial Horses, Bruce Cockburn
Reading:Snow Crash, by Neal Stephenson
Weather:68, summery night
I 'neaked outta work a little early today, cruised home, and vegged in front of the TV. On WE, the Women's Entertainment network, was some movie with Elizabeth Shue, almost mildly entertaining. But what really had me giggling were the commercials. They kept saying shit like "Mother's day all week with movies everynight this week. On We." Not funny, you say? Well, hear it rather than read it. It sounds like "Mother's day. . .everynight this week. Ennui." Yeah, over and over, it's like they were ADMITTING this shit is deadly fucking boring.

Fricking Disney is refusing to permit its subsidiary Miramax to distribute Michael Moore's new film "Fahrenheit 911" ANYWHERE in North America. Imagine that, the cartoon king censors the anti-corporatist art. Like my friend Kent said, 2004 or 1984? Actually, it's probably been heading this way since at least 1948.

And in other news, the smiling torturing American soldier in all the photos of humiliated (and one dead) Iraqis is a West Virginian. Great.

Want to get depressed without reading the papers? Listen to some Nick Drake, like The Way to Blue. Holy shit, very gorgeous, and deeply sad stuff.
