Tubers

...wherein local TV connoisseurs intimate what keeps them on their couches.

  1. "American Idol" "I started watching because of my dad, and now I'm addicted. I told myself that would never happen."
  2. "My Coolest Years: The Metalheads" "It's funny. Just these people talking about being really into metal when they were in high school."
  3. "The Simple Life" "Paris and Nicole are idiots, but somehow I love watching them."

Bound Up

Currently reading: "The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay" by Michael Chabon "It's about people who write comic books for a living," Grunau says. "It was a really good summer read."

One book everyone should read: "The Partly Cloudy Patriot" by Sarah Vowell "She's an essayist; a lot like David Sedaris," Grunau says. "It's really informative in a non-schoolish, non-bookish way."

Dear John. . .
Thank you for the sweet poem. When we recite it, we like to say, "National Public Radi-oo."
It makes it rhyme better, and it sounds more homey. And thanks for the website link. The denim background is the perfect compliment to your barely concealed paranoid delusions and messianic fantasies, and we share your view that coming to some sort of point after 10,000 words would be too predictable. Thanks again.
