Things you probably don’t know about me. Part 5 of 16.
I can’t watch bad TV. Seriously. Yesterday someone I know watched a bad show and commented it with “it’s really bad. So bad I got exhausted just by watching”, and I can’t do that. When I try my mind gets odd and restless, I need to do other things instead: make a fanzine or whatever. Maybe even sort the dvd-shelf according to some stupid order, let’s just hypothetically say world premiere date. My point is this: bad shows on the television and I don’t mix.
The odd thing though is that bad movies I can do fine. Really fine. I can even love them and I can sit there hooked for hours. I love the movie Hudson Hawk for fuck sake. Honest to your God. Own it on dvd.
So what is it that make me unable to watch even a few minutes of a bad show that’s over in 45 minutes but keep me spellbound if it’s going to take an hour and a half? Don’t know. A chemical imbalance? A rare form of allergies? Perhaps I’m just whacked in the head.
