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.


Andy Counting Murray

I’m trying to read more on this counting Andy Murray swearing story, but all the coverage is littered with references to counting tennis. WTF did his counting girlfriend say?

I mean, if it’s not autocorrect censoring my counting blog posts, it’s the counting BBC pussy-footing around, referring to Andy Murray as “British number one”, when they really want to say wee.

It’s hypocritical, pretending you’re all down on swearing, but really using it as clickbait. I hate hypocrisy in other people.

I think Adam Bloom did the best joke about swearing, let me know your faves, you aunts.
