Vice has been running a hilarious (and sobering) column for years now called London Rental Opportunity of the Week, which I stumbled on a few days ago; the author is hanging up his shingle and wrote a kiss-off to all landlords everywhere.
- Lost was great again this evening. Here’s a spoiler, though: next week is gonna be a repeat.
- Midway through CSI Expansion Number Seven, or whatever they’re calling the franchise version that runs on Wednesday nights, there was an exceptionally clumsy attempt at product placement by a company I won’t mention. Now, usually, I can spot this kind of thing, and it doesn’t bother me all that much. This was so clumsy, though. And immediately followed up by a commercial at the break. They might as well have had somebody in an empty studio shouting, HEY, STUPID AMERICAN CONSUMER. DID YOU SEE THAT? LOOK AT OUR PRODUCT. GO OUT AND BUY IT BECAUSE YOU SAW IT ON THE TEEVEE. WE ARE ORDERING YOU TO BUY THIS PRODUCT NOW. We decided to turn off the stupid show at that point. Fuck You, CBS.
I think I love LOST as much as I ever loved Sopranos or Six Feet Under. It’s *that* good IMO.
