The subject title is from a song a college friend of mine sang who was late for work at the world trade center on sept. 11th. He lived and that's what you'd expect from him. The full lyric (and only lyric) of the song is "Gandalf, can't take my hand off/ Hand off, you're watching football/ TV/ why won't you believe me" or something like that. On with the show.
Tv rules. I'm not ashamed to admit I watch Project Runway. It's great TV. I really don't know shit about fashion like the guys in Blink 182, but I know what looks good and I get off on predicting who goes home every week on the show.
I'm thinking Santino wins but it could be Chloe. The crazy thing about Santino is I had no idea his mom was black. They showed an old family photo and she's a fairly light skin, attractive black woman. He looks like General Zod most of the time, but once I saw his mom, I took another look at him and realized he's cut from the same Nicole Richie genetic cloth. Seriously, they could be brother and sister. Good show though and I'm thinking I'm going to enter my clothing line next year...I don't have anything sewn yet but everything has ruffles.
The other show I saw tonight was Samurai Champloo. I fully dig Adult Swim but I don't really like the Japanese stuff. I don't know what it is, but I lose interest in it very quickly. I tivo'd an episode of Samurai Champloo to see what it was all about and loved it. I have a season pass now, so time will tell if it keeps my interest.
Other than that, I wait breathlessly for new episodes of Lost (theories on request), the Boondocks is the best thing on TV and I just got hooked on the Amazing Race. Yeah, crazy isn't it? I hate most of that shit, but that show reeled me in.
So, if you're satisfied with what I'm watching on TV, please do some TV watching yourself. It's what's good for America.
