Aesop Rock had it right when he summed it up in Basic Cable. Sever your attachment to the idiot box now, don't be like "Please take me, please calm me, please make me a zombie. Please I wanna donate my brain to the monstrous Panasonic profit, now." In reality the television is merely the "Twenty-first century plauge dispersed to wide-eyed glamour addict patients, telecast patrons." Save yourself now while you can.
