Hmmm, I'm tired from volleyball, my roommate has the flu, and I just thought almost 4 hours of VH-1 was fascinating. Did VH-1 suddenly get great shows, or am I getting sick?

Eek. Sounds serious. ;-)

Take care of yourself. Drink plenty of fluids, echinacea tablets are good for building up your immune system, and eat loads of garlic. Chilli is also good, though I'm unsure whether the effect is psychological or real. Rest, relax, and watch Buffy the Vampire Slayer first season.

Or maybe that's just me.

One four hour bout of falling off the wagon doesn't qualify you for any twelve step program. Sometimes when you're tired, physically and emotionally, and opportunity aligns with your biorythms, things like this can happen. Actually, there are some good presentations on TV, unfortunately none of them are on the three major networks. It could be worse for you. My wife is nearing the later stages of HD. When I get home later in the afternoon, I help her eat and then hit the couch for our evening fare. A half hour of the local news, then Tony Kornheiser and Michael Wilbon on Pardon the Interuption and finally a West Wing rerun on Bravo until 7:00, (also a good time to do laundry) when we head up and I tuck my sweetheart in for the evening. I finish off the evening with a couple hours in my home office or read. So fear not, Sebastian, your confession absolves you of any stigma resembling a couch potato. Don't try this at home.

Television is the devil.

I don't know about "Total Eclipse of the Heart." 1983 was fairly early in the MTV era. It's been a while since I've seen the video, but it certainly didn't seem cliched to my eyes back then, although to modern eyes it must.

If you're looking for a report on a really primo TV binge, you can't go wrong with the Sportsguy's latest offering.

Me, TV and Percocets

When I'm sick, I watch "Animal Planet". I hope you get better soon. It's a bummer being sick in December.

That cliche show is part of a genre which is all over VH-1, E!, and CMT. They're insidious and addictive.

On thanksgiving there was a countdown of the top 40 worst heavy metal videos, which was pretty funny.

Actually, though, the quality of the commenters on those shows has started to decline. The funniest people aren't on as much, and you start getting Q-list celebs like a guy who was a Straight Guy on Queer Eye..., giving his 2 cents about videos in that heavy metal show.
