my only sources of news are NPR on the raadeeO, el furioso for the caustic, and an occassional long-wind of a ridiculously liberal pinko rag from the interwebs.
so i miss out on a lot of the 24hour regurgo-feeds that seem to dominate the pop-geist. (copyright)
For example ~
- had no idea that the bottle-buxomed blonde-shell died and had a kid and finding the father was an episode of Law&Order meets Jackass.
- couldn't tell you which actor is married to/cheating on what athlete/DJ/superstar of the moment ... or where they adopted their 3rd world baby.
- Virginia Tech shootings ~ never saw any phone-vid's of the rampage or "this is why my life sucks" recordings of the asshole who did it.
no interviews of survivors, nor townie reactions, nor any of the three dozen talkshows with the latest dr. phil explaining who's fault it was.
- and, if you asked me to tell you who the aMErican Idol contest fabulosos are or who won the World Series of Foolsball or ... the answer would be the same ~ i couldn't care less.
My world is ridiculously myopic. I slurp cycling up with a straw. I giggle with my woman. I'm a political junky and would rather see Naomi Klein naked than any of those chicks on Friends.
... but is that it?
oh, well i guess there's sex.
maybe a new hobby is needed - something to fill the few moments of sit down when it ain't lay down. hmmm ...

i do not pretend to say my life is not paradise. the food is sweet, the wine touches lips friendly, and the wind keeps us fresh in our citadel on the hill.
or maybe, we just need another race.
