    I've been watching and listening in binary style. TWO? TWO, TWO! for the price of one , cheap exploding entertainment in the safety of my own Lay-Z-Boy recliner, a glass of homemade sweet Irish breakfast tea iced down in one hand and a bag of sweet and juicy dried mango slices in the other while what ever the tube has spilling out and off the screen on to the front part of my brain straight from the 24 hour cycle of speculation and breaking-broken with heavy metal breakbeats whack scratching and a skinny kid screaming dig this dig this here dig, dig, dig, dig,this here in time to the theremins banshee screams
    oh it's so good.

    I can't watch the news. It makes me feel giddy and puts me off my food.
    You must have stumbled on an alternative news source.

    I think they just use the news now as a traineeship for being cast in reality tv shows or maybe it's just where the failed auditions end up.

    EVERYTHING on television is completely fake






    Except for the old original Hawaii Five-0 reruns

    The new version is, yes. The old ones, with Jack Lord, that's the real thing.

    It's actually simply documentary

    Perception is reality.

    Or, even better, in the words of the Good Doctor:

    "When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro''.

    Oh, speaking though of Merry Melodies, the old Bugs Bunny stuff is also real

    Everything else-fake as can be.

    With the exception of the Three Stooges, the ones with Curly (NOT Curly Joe!)

    How weird would it have been to have one of the Stooges as your dad? Like, you didn’t clean your room and he tries to double finger poke you in the eyes but you do a vertical sideways hand block.

    I like to watch the Russian news with the female newscasters who take off their clothes.
    I don’t understand any of it so I have the sound turned off.
    There are some fakes, but most look real to me.

    We knew communism was doomed from the start, didn't we?

    I mean, look at all the red flags.

    Please don't tell me that Gilligan's Island is not for real..It would break my old heart to learn that Ginger and Mary Ann were fake..

    I used to have an uncle who seemed to always show up at my house every time he scored acid. it often wasn't pretty.
