"Kaddish for TV" from ENCOURAGER

"Gawd, I can't even remember a time before the Internet, you know? I mean, I can barely remember that time. And when I try to remember it, all I can think is: TELEVISION.

When I was a kid I lived in Los Angeles, and people used to put stickers on the back of their cars and a really popular one was a simple slogan that went like this: KILL YOUR TV

There’s such a sick irony to this slogan, to hearing it, remembering it today. In today's times. It's a shame. It's like making fun of a suicide. It is exactly that, mocking someone who is killing themselves, and that's not funny, right? R.I.P. TELEVISION. I loved her. I guess I should say VIDEO."
