Having spent the last few years blogging and surfing I have steadily become more disullusioned with modern media (I no longer watch TV or read newspapers but gain all my general knowledge from blogs and the web) and have felt much critisiced by the folks around me for been a geek - in the negative sense.
Well this Sunday was a grand revelation to me. I travelled with Suzanne to see her relations one of whom is sectioned at The Homerton hospital
and who is been subjected to ECT
a rather barbaric treatment IMHO just for going wandering in London. However, the real surprise was at her brother in laws house were he was watching LIVE big brother
and what did that involve? Yep watching folks sleeping!! Now I know why my dad used to watch "There will now be an interlude"
cards on the old TV. Is this what digital TV was invented for. A mass soporific device?
So the question is who is the more crazy. The guy watching someone sleep on big brother or the old lady who wants to explore her childhood haunts? Jeez what a world
