Must Watch TV
NOTE: if nothing else, skim down to the bottom and read the last section.
I gave up cable television about a year ago. Why? A). I couldn’t justify paying upwards of my first born child when I’m only home 3-4 hours out of the day anyways; B) outside of The Daily Show (which I can watch online) and Lost (which is over), there’s nothing remotely good to watch; C) The way I see it, if I have 2-3 hours to watch tv, I have 2-3 hours to get smarter – I read; and D) I just flat out don’t have the time to watch television.
I mean, between my hours spent coaching at CP, writing programs, writing articles, writing this blog, lifting heavy things, having a bromance with Dean Somerset, and eating – who has the time, really?
I have no idea who’s in the running for American Idol, and I certainly have no clue what the hell is going on on The Bachelor. Although, I know last time around Brad didn’t pick DeAnna. Prick.
To that end, since I’m pretty much closed off to the outside world, my pop-culture mojo is definitely slacking, and seemingly, I’m about two weeks behind everyone else.
I know many of you have probably already watched this, but if you haven’t – it’s gold. I don’t know how he did it, and I don’t really care, but Jimmy Kimmel was able to collect some of the hottest women in Hollywood for this epic skit. Well played sir, well played indeed.
And, not to be outdone, a reader (thank you Tavis) sent me the follow-up from this week:
Every Little Bit Counts
On a more serious note, it’s been absolutely heart-wrenching to see the footage coming out of Japan. And, like everyone else, it’s made me realize just how short life can be, and that I really have no place to complain about the fact that it’s going to snow again this weekend.
The Amercian Red Cross has set up a fund for earthquake and tsunami victims where everyone who texts REDCROSS to 90999 will have $10 automatically added to their phone bill, which will then be used to help out in relief efforts.
Nonetheless, I have a little incentive for you. I want everyone to grab their phone right now and donate. When you do, write a little note in the comments section below that you did it, and I’ll place your name in a random drawing for Biotest supplements and a Cressey Performance t-shirt. Seriously, it’s like a movie ticket. At the end of the day, I’ll tally up the names and pick one at random.
