    It’s true, nobody watches television anymore. Shows, yes, but through completely different media (or, in the case of DVR, just not during regularly-scheduled time slots).

    I’m going to be terrified of what the world is going to look like once we get to the point where nobody uses the internet anymore. The amount of information and stimuli produced at that level will do some massive brain-frying then.

    On another note, Zombie Joseph Beuys! We haven’t seen him ’round these parts in a while!

    Throw away your television, indeed. Is that the spaghetti monster behind girl or a disgruntled ball of of yarn? Perhaps the revolutionary fervour of televisions no longer being watched.

    The revolution will not be televised, it will be TiVo’d.

    Well, how am I going to talk to people I don’t know _now_?

    If it were to come out in time for the Midterm or 2012 election season, I would 100% buy a reprinting of the Zombie Joseph Beuys t-shirt.

    That was re: Krimson’s comment, obviously.

    I know Vampire Hipster has an un-tucked shirt sticking out of a sweater vest… but it really looks like he’s wearing tighty-whiteys. Giggle.

    Side note: I’m note real happy with this spelling of tighty-whiteys, but can’t think how else to spell it.

    Youtube killed the TV star.

    As a librarian, I <3 this. Also, if one more patron asks me if I'm afraid that books will disappear, I might lose my shit.

    Awesome, bang on.

    I haven’t had a TV since 1992 but I still watch it in hotels to figure out what’s happening culturally in whatever country I’m in.
