my life's so common it disappears

Oh, yes. My least favorite news item is entertainment news as well. Actually, I hate it being called *news*. It is mostly *gossip*. Occasionally I will listen to "Fresh Air" when a celebrity such as, say, Paul McCartney is on. There are many entertainers that I really admire for the work they do. But I am completely uninterested in where they have been seen, and with whom. In fact, I kind of resent this sort of inquiry on their behalfs....

Oddly enough, I just got an email from *Madonna*, supposedly, on behalf of General Clark's campaign. I like Madonna, I'm voting for Clark, but that she is supporting him is completely meaningless to me, except that I perhaps believe that she will vote for him, too, so, one more vote for Wes.

I also hate reality TV. And most other TV. But reality shows suck bigger raw eggs than pretty much any other thing that seems to pass as "entertainment". And I haven't deduced one iota of "reality" from the mercifully brief exposure I've had to these shows.

I used to occasionally pay a smidgen of attention to basketball when Larry Bird was playing for the Celtics, just to see his amazing talent. All the other guys on the team could be completely choking, and they'd hand the ball to Larry, and he'd pretty much win it on his own. Since then, yep. Cold. What I really hate is hockey. And I dislike auto racing of any kind. Both seem to be about waiting for blood and gore and guts (and in the case of hockey, veins in their teeth) to happen.
