Idle thoughts of a relatively libertarian Republican in Cambridge, MA, and whomever he invites. Mostly political.

Sunday, March 05, 2006 :::

The Academy Awards are tonight. My roommate ran into me in front of the TV in the kitchen and asked whether I was checking up on them. "No," I said, a little surprised that he'd have to ask. "It suppose I could probably care less, but I can't imagine how."

After some consideration, though, I did come up with something I care about less than Hollywood's opinion of the movies that came out last year: Hollywood's opinion of anything else.

A week and a half ago, I think, there was a one-hour block in which the fourth most watched TV show had more than 14 million viewers. I happened to get home from work during that hour, and had the TV on for about 10 minutes while doing something else, after which I turned it off; nobody else, apparently, was watching what I was watching either. (The four were the Olympics, American Idol, Survivor -- which I didn't realize still existed -- and Dancing with the Stars, which I didn't realize was remotely popular.)
Another thing to care less about than Hollywood's opinions of the movies that came out last year is Hollywood's opinion of poltical matters.
