rich, about TV -

i think that the resurgence in the popularity and quality of television has a lot to do with our generation's obsession with childhood.
this obsession is fueled by marketing, but probably created by a combination of 70's/80's wealth and selfishness as well as the realization that we will prolly not be richer (or even healthier) than our parents as well as a lot of other things.
this isn't a new though, but we haven't blogged about it, and i'm tired of the Tim Russert post being the first one i see.

I don't know if I want to give too much credit to the nostalgic lust we can't fuck out of ourselves.

The improvement in TV quality is possibly just a result of the need to sylize everything as much as possible as a means of providing value to our lives.

This is largely inspired by the fucknig Heinz condiment package that a pretty girl displayed at her pretty barbecue and oila! Hooray! ketchup got pretty!

also, the movie theater has become a house of suck, and many of the talented folks in the LALALand are moving to work in TV, because, believe it or not, its far more flexible an arena than the big screen.
thought i would chime in.
