Well, I think I'd stand up and walk out on you.
We always have to wonder not only about actions and deeds, but about what they normalise and what they point the way to. I just watched TV for the first time in months. On one channel in less than two hours, Gimme Shelter and Children Of The Revolution advertised computer games, Pretty Vacant advertised betting, the Lightning Seeds advertised a bank, and Lemmy actually appeared in the advert where there's a specially re-recorded Ace of Spades advertising beer. This is what we feared when The Clash advertised jeans in the 90s.
This has an anti-encouragement effect on me, it makes me feel soiled and hate the products. Then again, I suppose I'm not exactly the target audience.
But this is normal for most people isn't it? Like living next to a sewage farm, you stop smelling the stench of commerce after a while.
The average Briton watches four hours of TV a day. People who watch more than seven hours a day are more common than those of us who watch less than an hour.
