"I don't watch tv."

Last night, I was home at home all night, trying to get rid of this cold that has suddenly taken over my life. I was downloading some torrents when I stumbled across a link for the "drunk history" series. I usually ignore these things, but I saw Mikey Cera in it, so I had to check it out. It is a 4 part series, with such notable stars as Jack Black, Clark Duke, Chrissie from Growing Pains, Jason Ritter and Danny McBride. I'm not going to lie, it is ridiculous.

And somehow, I stumbled across this poor soul.

{For Becky: He is apparently playing Wednesday, October 22, 2008 at 8:00pm and Thursday, October 23, 2008 at 12:00am at the forest 3 bristo place Edinburgh. If you're in the area, you should totes go.}

While watching these videos of people finding an outlet for their creativity as well as their exhibitionism, I was reminded of this girl that I used to work with. I don't want to say that I didn't like her, but just to be clear, I did not. She would always talk about how she didn't watch tv, because it was such a wasteland, she had too much reading to do for school, blah blah blah. One time, a different co-worker was telling me about a youtube video that I should watch, then, this coworker that I didn't like told me that she had seen that video, and how funny it was. She proceeded to tell me that she is addicted to youtube. She had viewed something like 200,000 videos. Wow, and TV is a waste of time?

i looooove when people think they're cool by proudly stating "i don't watch tv." as if their lives are THAT much more interesting and they're solving global hunger with all the time they're not wasting. riiiiiight - just admit that you watch project runway just like the rest of us.

Molly, see this is why we are friends. Why do they think they are not watching TV?

You know what always makes me laugh about those people? If they come over and the TV is on, they CANNOT tear themselves away...interesting.

I proudly watch more shows than I can name off of the top of my head. And when there's nothing good on, I pop in TV on DVD, oh how I love TV on DVD.

That was supposed to say who do they think they are, not why.
