nothing good comes of not watching television

I associate television with cans of Heineken and world-cup soccer. Paradise. Television has invaded my room.

I keep on thinking I am going to buy a television. But I already own a television. Problem is, it is downstairs, I have no furniture in that room, and it is too big to bring it upstairs.I miss hotel rooms, where the television is 10 feet from everything. Then there is no way to avoid it.I like those tours of million-dollar celebrity mansions they sometimes show pictures from a TV show. They always have some kind of mechanized system to stick a television right down your throat while you are in bed, without having to move. You would think celebrities would have sex swings or chamber pots or microwave ovens or who knows for use while in bed. But I guess there is some kind of association between television and celebrity.Or in the ghetto, poor people put televisions in the backs of their car seats.Every boat I have looked at to buy comes with a television. Like they think the TV is the kicker, that brings the boat value straight over the top. Like wow, this boat has a television in it! Awesome. Think of the things you could do.I want to do Chelsea Handler doggy style, facing a television, with another television on her back for me to look at.

When I lived in South Beach, there was a TV channel called fTV or fashion television. At that time it mostly showed models walking down runways all day. It is the only TV show I can remember watching on a regular basis. It was hard to turn off, for fear of missing something.In a way, it was like Battlestar Galactica where they were always trying to find Earth. Or the Road Runner cartoon where Wile E. Coyote is always trying to catch the Road Runner. Or Pinkie and the Brain, where he is always trying and failing to take over the world. Or the Incredible Hulk, where he is always trying to have a normal life. Or Gilligans Island, where they are trying to get off the island, or Dukes of Hazzard where Boss Hogg is trying to get the Duke boys.Each girl steps onto the runway with the aim of moving her skeleton in perfect form. And day after day, they all fall short in some small way. But there is always hope that some day, some girl will deliver the perfect walk.
