Chewing Gum For The Eyes

This might be my favourite description of TV:

If you were a being from outer space watching people making and consuming TV, you’d see 0.001% of humanity inserting ideas and images into the minds of 99.999% of humanity.*

At media and publishing companies, there’s a person or a whole department whose job it is to tell people no.

Now the good news:

As the 99.999%, you can really choose what to with your eyeballs these days.

As the 99.999%, we can make things for each other.

PS. If you have nine seconds, and you fancy a bit of chewing gum, here’s Father Ted on this issue.

* I forget who said this, but it was on David Barsamian’s Alternative Radio.
