I think Ricky Gervais fucking sucks. I tried to put up with his podcast because everyone says it's great, but all he does is make fun of Karl Pilkington and laugh like an asshole. I just downloaded his "Out of England" standup and it is excruciating. Obviously he's doing the character of an asshole in both of those, but it seems like he's sort of adopted a permanent performance art where he plays a non-funny jerk, and I just don't enjoy the meta-humor of that enough to put up with it.
I disconnected my cable TV a while ago and I'm mostly happy with that, but now that football season is upon us I am wishing I had it. Of course TV is just a stupid waste of time, but hell that's pretty much what life is, we're all just trying to waste time until we get the sweet sweet peace of death.
