Guilty pleasure television

So my DVR list has a pretty wide range of shows on my list. I have confessed to the guilty pleasures of "American Idol" and "So you think you can Dance" and the train wreck that is "Jersey Shore". I also love standard popular shows like "LOST" and I just watched the season finale of "Heroes". Mix in some other shows like "Survivorman" and "man vs wild" and "Dog the bounty hunter". Throw in some expected shows like "mythbusters", "conspiracy theory with Jesse Ventura", and "the daily show". So what show could I tell you that would make you say WTF?

RuPauls Drag Race!

That's right, I said it. I watch a show about drag queens and think that it is FAB-U-LOUS! It is a world that I don't know anything about and I find it fascinating! I really do. I have to say that these men...er..women...err...yeah...anyway, these people are genuine and truly comfortable with who they are and I respect that they stand up and aren't afraid to be who they are. This may be a bit of a leap, but it is teh same way that I am not afraid to stand up and admit that I am a hacker.

I admit that their situation may be much harder due to social stigma, but hackers can relate at least o a small scale to having to hide who we are to certain people. There is a lesson here of tolerance and even though you may have laughed at the first part of this entry, I hope that you finish reading this post with a lesson. How can we expect other people to accept us for who we are if we don't accept other people for who they are. Or to put it into words that Rupaul says on the show...

"How can you expect anyone to love you, if you can't love yourself?"

That's right, I quoted RuPaul in a blog post on a hacking site. That is what makes me the dawg.

How do you have time to watch so much TV?

DVR man...DVR. If it wasn't for the DVR, I wouldn't even have cable again. I went without cable for about 2 years before I moved to Orlando. When I went back on cable here and got the DVR, it changed my life. I am not tied to the TV, I simply record it and watch it when I am bored or while I eat or read or whatever. I multitask a lot and watch TV while I do other things. I rarely watch shows the day that they air. I am usually several days or weeks behind. Also factor in that for every hour of television, after I fast forward through the commercials, it only take about 40 minutes for each show. I have mastered "Attack of the Show" on g4 so that I watch the entire 1 hour show in about7 minutes because it is mostly garbage. I jump to the funny videos, an occasional interview, and that is about it.

I guess it boils down to you being l33ter than me. I can't multitask. At all. If i'm watching a film/tv program then that's all my little brain can cope with.
