News about which you don't give a F U C K

Recommended Posts

Death of Princess Di

London Olympics 2012

Hurricanes in the Caribbean 2017

 

Endless coverage; zero interest.

 

Still, radio about to go on for the Last Night of the Proms.  There remians some decent stuff in broadcast media.

.  There remians some decent stuff in broadcast media.

I watched a bit of TV for the first time in a while tonight. My word, the quality has noticeably dropped off a very large cliff.

I caught yet another cookery program, almost painfully ethnically correct and staggeringly dull. Something about families cooking what they cook at home for a top chef and a fat woman. 

Thrilling.

Then there was genuinely one of the shittest things I've ever seen on the TV. It was fronted by that glorified bingo host Len Goodman and the premise was a bunch of simpletons look at some crap animation to make a rhyme.

* shite animation of a sock bouncing on Ayers Rock appears on screen *

"Oh, oh! I know!! It's a sock on a rock Len!!"

*applause*

 

The fuck?

I actually thought it was a wind up but I think it was a serious program. I wasn't going to buy a new Xbox but if this is the alternative then I'll be getting my pre-order in.

I use Amazon Prime and Netflix in 4k on the current xbox, the quality is staggering. Just offering an alternative to the broadcast media.

Things I couldnt give a shite about in the news include in no particular order anything to do with gender/ sexuality, royal babies/royals, weather, I think this list is getting too long.

I can't give a shite about anything which doesnt  effect me and the things I can do nothing about or didnt cause.

It's always the effect of the affect that is the problem

O and A level Results ( surely the media realise by now that these occur every year just like the daffodils in spring and are about as newsworthy).

How many Firsts were awarded at the University of Arseville this year.

Any health survey purporting to be news telling me that I am too drunk, too fat or too idle.

Any 'news' item that is essentially just a cover for some government initiative on any subject from global warming to what I put in my bins.

Stories about American politicians or celebrities I have never heard of and domestic issues in the US I care fuck all about (especially anything to do with OJ Simpson)

BBC News items that are essentially just plugs for its own programs.

All news about Premier League football clubs full of foreign coaches and players with incomprehensible names who sail under English flags of convenience until the money runs out or their agent gets a better offer. The only Transfer Window concerning them in which I have the remotest interest is one that involves throwing them out of the top of a 20 story building.

Last but not least deadbeat 'alternative' celebs who went mainstream decades ago lecturing me on every subject from Brexit to global poverty.

Any story that contains the words 'might', 'may' or 'could'.

Wake me up when it is 'will', 'has' or 'did'.

This is one of those things that once you notice, your life will never be the same. 

 

eg kills up to 99% of bacteria. Meaningless!
