When I had energy, I used to be one of those dudes that didnt watch TV. There was a good 5 years where I didnt watch anything but the simpsons on video and skate/bmx videos. I guess that time was spent buying/listening to/talking about hardcore records. Rather than being able to talk about any pop culture stuff I was able to only talk about some small subculture. For a long time I had at least 5 roomates, so there was always something fun going on.
Anyway, in the past few years I have taken to watching TV. I dont hate it, its pretty funny sometimes etc etc.
This brings up the point of the post. THE WIRE this is seriously the best show I have ever seen. Its a series on HBO thats been on for like 6 years or something. I am about to finish the end of season 3 on DVD. It is so amazing. I was just out on a ride and was thinking about it a lot of the time. I was having real feelings of empathy for one of the characters. Maybe Im crazy. If you are bored and want something to do, rent the first season, and it only gets better from there.
