I took down that last post because it was just a little too dark. Sometimes I think blogging takes the place of a shrink. It’s cheaper anyway. I really appreciate all the kind feedback and emails I received in response. I’m over it, thanks to you. No more drama.
Meanwhile, quite the buzz around TechTV about the article on our site posted by a disgruntled former employee. Guess someone forgot to cancel his VPN account and he wrote a scathing piece on the “top ten reasons why TechTV will be out of money by next year.” He was very kind to me but not so nice to others at the channel. For example:
“TV people are in general more stupid, shallow and less pleasant professionally than anyone I’ve ever worked with. I think this is because of the medium they work in – which by its very nature is superficial, stimulating without being intellectual, and sometimes outright boring. They don’t call it the boob tube for nothing. I just wish the boobs had stayed away from TechTV.”
A few sharp eyed viewers caught the page before it was taken down. I imagine the text will surface somewhere but I don’t dare post it here. Meanwhile it’s being passed around TechTV with lots of surreptitious looks. What a hoot.
Jennifer and I took the night off (I’ve got the usual column, web questions, and a speech to write but they’ll keep til tomorrow) and watched Almost Famous. Much better than I expected, but really, Kate Hudson for Best Supporting Actress? I loved Phillip Seymour Hoffman as Lester Bangs. Has he ever done a bad job. Just a joy to watch. Like Cameron Crowe, Jen and I graduated from high school in 1973 – when the movie takes place – so we really identified with it. It’s good to be a boomer!
