As I drove in to work this morning I was impatiently flipping radio stations trying to find some music. More than anything else I hate talk in the morning. Funny talk, serious talk, morning-show talk, traffic talk ? I hate it all. Give me music and leave me alone with your banal hilarity.
Anyway, as I was driving, one song ended and the dj came on with far too much enthusiasm and began to give the ?Idol Update?. As I hastily changed the channel I started to get angry. If I wanted to know what was going on on ?Idol?, I?d watch the damn show. Is there really that big of a need to recap it the morning after?? If you were watching you already know what happened. If you weren?t, it?s probably because you feel, as I feel, that reality television is one of the tangible signs that our American Empire is slowly slipping towards the abyss.
American Idol, you make me weep.
