It’s Wednesday night and I’m stuffy (just allergy/sinus stuffy, not COVID end of days stuffy) and I am on the couch in the living room with the Chromebook and I have nothing to watch on television since I deleted my entire YouTube TV queue last night.
I also checked in the book I was reading which is or recently was a bestseller, People We Meet on Vacation. I don’t know why I try mainstream books but every once and a while (typically, each summer) I get curious and the result is always the same. I get about 30 percent into the book and surrender, checking it back in early for the next sufferer.
In all probability, the next person will like the book but it reminds me of Harlan Ellison talking to Tom Snyder about books (and television shows) written for the masses just to keep us all dumbed down because every popular work has to be accessible to everyone, lowest common denominator, etc. etc.
Does this make me a book/television snob? Probably.
I don’t watch much television but I am enjoying Only Murders in the Building on Hulu. In fact, that’s the only show I am watching regularly these days although I also am back into college football which is some quite enjoyable, non-thinking entertainment for me.
And, I went back into my library to read list and checked out The Fran Lebowitz Reader which I am really enjoying.
I guess that’s it. Another rainy Wednesday is in the books.
