I'd rather stare at a blank wall.
They say that when you're watching TV, your metabolism levels are lower than when you're sleeping. You're really in suspended animation. So if you can put something through the filter and disrupt the pacifying flow of the television transmission…Everybody grew up remembering some TV moment where somebody did something fucked-up. And it's like a little crack opened up and there's some light shining through.
