I don't watch alot of the tube unless of course it's the footie but seeing as how i was relaxing and on vacation i took time out from my rigorous reading schedule (only a pompous ass would say this) to see what the world of television was all about. I can admit that as a form of escapist entertainment it's probably better for you than say heroin but i can also say quite possibly just as harmful. It's so passive it scares me. So what did i watch?
My favorite thing was the show about Corey Haim and Corey Feldman, those wacky 80's child stars who ended up with little drug problems, Haim is lucky to be alive and looks just as fucked up sober as he did high, Feldman is now an upstanding citizen of the world promoting animal rights and other shit. Riveting crap nonetheless.
I saw shows about swapping wives, shows about bounty hunters, i watched the news and watched the Bourne Identity overdubbed in Spanish, watched Dr. Phil for fucks sake, i spent to much money in the casino and won very little so in a way i was forced to watch more television than i would of liked but one can only have so many martini's and Cuban cigars and still awake early in the A.M. to reserve a little hut to keep one's skin out of the brutal Caribbean sun. Most days i hid under the hut, went to the pool bar and swam in the ocean looking somewhat like a sea otter with just my head peeping up from the water and everything else submerged. Unfortunately i'm not as smart as the wily sea otter and could find no shell to crack open oysters, come to think of it i couldn't find any oysters either though i wasn't really looking.
So that's my foray into the world of television, how people can watch so much of it baffles me but to each his own hey Caesar.
