Believe it or not, but there are days when I sit down to write something, but can't think of anything to write about. This usually happens on days that have a "y" in them.
When this happens, I fire up blogger and navigate to this here blog and figure out what the next post number should be. Once I have done that, I specify that as part of the post title, and then add something like the day of the week.
After I have done that, I begin writing random thoughts in a way that may seem profound to readers who don't bother paying attention to what they're reading. This is a form of writer's block; I'm told that one can combat writer's block by writing nonsensical sentences. Let's try it.
The spidery-ant climbed the cone and swallowed the frozen barbituates.
Hmm. I don't think this is helping. How about:
The marzipan ate the cheese before driving to the hoosegow.
Nope. I'm getting desperate here. Let's try this:
I am a civil servant and I make lots of money and love my job. I feel that my opinion is valued and that I have the respect of my peers.
Ha ha ha.
So much better.
My work week is half over. This coming Saturday I take possession of a slightly used HD television; I just have to wipe away the bloodstains and it will be good to go. It is a 42 inch 1080p whose brand name escapes me. I will be getting that television just as the world is starting to understand the concept of 4K, which is literally 4 times the resolution of 1080p. This means that when you watch porn, not only will you be able to see a pimple on a porn star's ass, but you will be able to tell if it is a whitehead or not and can therefore engage in an online bet with other 4K users as to when it will pop.
By the time 4K tv's come down to a price that the average dude can afford, they will have, what, 16K televisions. They will have such good resolution that you will swear your momma had walked in front of it when in fact you are actually watching a rerun of "The Golden Girls".
By the time 64K tv's come out, it will actually be cheaper to hire an executive producer, writers, directors, actors and a soundstage to produce a television show for you to watch on your old-fashioned 4K tv than it will be to buy a 64K television. Ever. I look forward to that day because I have a high concept for a tv show. If I shared it with you, you would think I was a bloody genius. I am afraid that you might steal the idea so I will keep it to myself for the time being.
Let's bring it on. 64K televisions.
A Bevboy can dream, can't he?
See you tomorrow.
