sugarbabies…

you know how fickle i can be….

i bore soooo easily…..

so while drifting in and out of a cold medicine induced coma…. (the dr says it is the flu..but im pretty sure it must be the ebola virus…cause ive never been so sick in my life) i left the television porn player tuned to current..

a lot of my friends/family are in the entertainment/media business so …they introduced me to it pretty early and.. well….. when it came up in conversation recently and several folks here in dc didnt know what i was talking about…. i was kinda shocked…

what?? you dont watch current???

babies….its the only channel i DO watch (not counting my guilty pleasures CSI and Law & Order…)

the seven min bursts of viewer created content…kind of annoyingly referred to as “pods”…. is perfect for ADD, pop culture junkies….

i know what you are thinking…you tube…on the tv…but thats not quite it…..

nobody has been more surprised than me over the past year or two at the consistently good content…provided by everyday assholes… us… the viewers…

production values vary and some of the pieces (i just cant call them “pods” sorry…) are glossier than others… but none of it feels like it has been filtered through the mainstream news channels, executive committees or test marketed in the midwest…that alone makes it feel..well not quite raw..but fresh…

now dont get me wrong…its not the wild west… and not EVERY idiot gets his piece on the tely… although a few memorable ones for me included:

  • following along when a chick goes for her first colonic… it was a train wreck i couldnt turn away
  • a transgendered llama farmer that repeatedly (and kinda creepily) referes to his llama as sexy legs…
  • a libertarian conspiracy to take over new hampshire …which actually sounds kinda cool…

but more often than not the stories are small…personal… and… surprisingly good…

  • russian skin heads that have taken to attacking immigrants or non-russians and posting the videos online
  • sloppy joe night at an orphanage in kenya… where all the children have HIV
  • three generations of soldiers speak candidly about war
  • a water gun spy/assassination tournament….. geek much?
  • a street art program here in DC that interviews local artist James Coleman

there is a process to getting your video on current… and frankly….im not sure what it is….cause i have never taken the time to figure it out… but it involves the website and prob. some other stuff…

and oh yeah… i forgot..i think al gore is on the board of the company that owns current…. so i guess now he can say he invented television too… but whatevs…. i still like it..

i think you can find it everywhere…..here in dc on….cockcast channel 107 … and 366 on direct tv….

enjoy…

and tomorrow il type up the stuff you realllly come here for… the trash talk about the boys and who i may have infected with the ebola virus…

xoxo
