I decided yesterday that I needed a break from certain types of politics and "serious" news media. These things have been depressing me in a way that induces body loathing, which just makes me more depressed. And kinda stupid.

Today I feel better. Instead of watching morning news, I watched the weather report and then skipped to MTV. And instead of NPR, there was the CD the boy made me. Sadly, the MTV thing seems to have taken more, because I still have Britney Spears' "Toxic" in my head. It's danceable.

It's also funny that I consider watching MTV a valid media hiatus activity. I think the network represents all the things that inspire people to demand killing one's television on bumper stickers: a conglomeration of sales tactics, sexification of everything/one, exploitation of youth, etc. [On a side note, everyone I personally know who had one of those stickers was an avid videogamer. I'm not sure they realized that killing their teevees would kill their joyous gaming experiences. So I might be a little cynical about anti-TV folk on account of the ones I've known being so - um, clever.]

Personally, I find the MTV strangely harmless. At least their infotainment is obviously tainment, not always disguised as info. I like tainment.

Er. Now I'm rambling.

My mental break courtesy of [ profile] thealicia_w. The third-from-bottom question made me think of another meme someone should start (if someone hasn't): name every city you've visited and the best place to go there, for food or otherwise. Has anyone done that?

very exciting food meme, not to be missed )
