Great moments in kill your TV history:

Film & Video catagory -
1. Wendy O. Williams (WOW) careens a bus through a wall of TV's in a Plasmatics video.



Another one:
In 1975, the Ant Farm Collective (the gang who brought us the Cadillac Ranch) plowed a 1959-Cadillac-turned-spaceship through a wall of TVs in the Cow Palace parking lot for their film "Media Burn." This probably predates the Plasmatics video. You can watch it here:

More evidence on the detrimental effects of TV on kids. USA Today just released this report Sunday.

"Short attention span linked to TV"

This is NEWS?

Is USA Today under the impression that people haven't been aware of this for a few decades?

More ironically, this 'news' is coming from a newspaper that won't run articles over a certain llength, or use words beyond a certain comlexity so as not to confuse their 7th-grade reading level audience... or to lose those without the attention span to read more than a few paragraphs.

"Short attention span linked to TV... perpetuated here"

Too funny! The media reporting on the problem are actually the cause of the problem!

Hey Jab, you've been in the trenches as long as me. We both know the media minions are constantly swarming around in search of any story that has a pulse. Frank Zappa summed it up perfectly- "if another woman driver gets machine gunned from her seat, we'll send a joker with a brownie and you'll see it all complete"

I cited USA Today because that was the only link I could find that could be accessed. Maybe I should have looked harder but htat was the first one that came up. The story was actually released by the AP and distributed to several other news carriers.

No this is not news. That's the sad part. Just like the story we hear over and over again (in fact it was in the news yesterday) that counting calories and watching what you eat keeps you healthier and extends the potential of a longer life. That's news?
