I wasn’t going to weigh in on this, but Scalzi is literally, in a figurative sense, twisting my arm. I don’t want him to lose his job at AOL – By The Way, because then he would only be known as a talented, award-winning author. And who wants that? (Plus, I like the boost my little blog gets whenever I participate.) So, my response the current weekend assignment:
It’s an impossible choice. Kevin Bacon appears in so many movies, I would pretty much have to cancel my cable subscription to give him up. I mean, I have a program guide on my DVR, but it doesn’t always give me all the information that I need. I would hate it if I agreed to give up Bacon, and all the sudden he pops up in some movie and now I’ve broken my oath. Not to mention that he has starred in some of my favorite movies: A Few Good Men, Stir of Echoes, Flatliners, and, good God let’s not forget Tremors, just to name a few.
As for TV, as much as it has been a plague on my writing career and social life, I could not live without it. ’24’ alone is worth keeping my TV and its shows. And I could barely go a day without ‘That 70’s Show’ or ‘Futurama’. So no, TV stays. It would be like betraying my best friend.
It’s an impossible choice. I hope I never have to make it.
I just realized that Scalzi was talking about bacon the food item and erstwhile cat accessory. I guess I should have read the entry a little more closely.
TV, hands down.
So long bacon, don’t let the door hit ya where the good Lord split ya!
