Turn off, tune out, drop in

April 24th, 2007

If you’re worried you’ve already reached your quota of tv, you can turn off the darn thing by being a moral crusader rather than toadying to the whims of the loons who want to ban it completely - hey, some of us were educated by the telly back in our toddlerage, and who can be considered more a counter-culture proto-hero than Teddy Edward - be warned people!

That’s why those Culture Jammer/Adbuster kooks are so cool, we only have to miss a week of the google box - and it’s easy enough to catch up with the omnibus editions or More Four.

So, even if you’re dead set on sitting in front of the dead set, you can miss a week, surely. And do your bit for the whole cultural anti-capitalism thing. And in true post-ironic style those Adbusters have raised the money and made a tv ad (Why Don’t You…? was doing much the same thing years ago).

So, stop the bandwagon, I want to get on. Or as Timothy Leary might say if he were still strugging with FreeView - turn off, tune out, drop in.
