Monday Links

I think I'm the only person left in the world who isn't watching the Olympics. The world without TV is a strange and terrifying place, not unlike Utica, NY. On to the links:
  • Edan interviews Nam Le at the Millions, where they talk about colon exams, Provincetown, and Friday Night Lights.

I don't have TV either so I am right with you. It is ok Patrick to not know what the heck is on TV. Do you ever notice that when someone starts talking about a TV show and you say that you don't have TV, they invariably say, "Yeah, but it's a really GOOD show."

It's true, Judy, that people rush to defend TV. My wife is loving life with no TV, while I'm feeling a little disconnected. And I miss my steady stream of sports highlights, dumb as that may sound.

TV shows, surprisingly, aren't what I'm missing. The good shows, like Weeds, Friday Night Lights, Mad Men (or so I've heard, DVDs coming Thursday!) are all out there on DVD, ready to be watched at a leisurely pace. I think TV has almost totally lost its water cooler cache, with the exception of certain big events like the opening ceremony of the Olympics, because everybody Tivos everything anyway.
