nothing on tv

Don't know too much about this guy AA Gill at the Times but like reading a bit of smartypants vitriol every now and then. He had a great piece about organic food i mentioned a while back. We have a tv packed in the basement, but it is not digital ready, so by February will really be able to say 'we don't have tv'. But this is funny.

"I’ve always considered 'nothing on television' the most asinine cultural comment a grown-up can make. There is a multicoloured cacophonous Niagara of stuff pouring out of every screen all day, every day. There are more tellies than people in this country. There are lots of things you could say about television — and I do — but 'There’s nothing on' isn’t one of them." Further reading.
