I hear that there's some sort of sporting event taking place tonight. I can't be bothered watching, even if I weren't working, I'd probably take a pass heh heh. Besides the whole Debordian spectacle that is off-putting to me, I have come to revile the whole American football system, with its multiple incidents of heinous sexual misconduct and culture of violent misogyny. Even the fact that the advertisements have eclipsed the main event is repugnant- do I really want to be manipulated for commercial purposes?
I can understand that people want to be entertained, to hang out with friends drinking beer and eating junk food. Hey, I like to do that myself. I just don't want to be involved in this particular orgy of mass consumption, of mass consumerism. As far as I'm concerned, I'd rather watch a superb owl, but I'm nerdy that way.
