LA LA LAND AMERICA!
Well reality TV at its dumbest was the first presidential debate. Tubularsock didn’t capitalize presidential because it would deem it with respect. Fuck That (capitalized).
Tubularsock usually can’t stand to watch trivia-shows and doesn’t have a TV BUT a very good friend came to Tubularsock’s Bunker (see Bunker Tour if you are new to Tubularsock) and begged Tubularsock to tape this crap so it could be seen by my friend later in the evening after work.
Well Tubularsock, all heart as well as brains, had to quickly rig up a system to pull off that task. Looking more like a NSA setup for spying rather than recording this “debate”, a misnomer if there ever was one, Tubularsock set up a microphone and placed it in front of his very large speakers and used his tuner to tune into the radio broadcast from NPR.
Then connected the microphone to the computer and opened GarageBand (a Mac app) and recorded the program’s sound.
Then found a “live stream” of the “debate” from the Washington Post and turned off the sound so as to only view the picture which due to a slow internet connection during “high-peak” usage spent more time with a “spinning wheel” than picture. The delay time ran about four to seven minutes which was funny because as the goofballs started to speak on NPR the Washington Post stream pictured only two empty podiums. WHICH TO TUBULARSOCK WAS THE ONLY SIGN OF TRUTH FOR THE NEXT NINETY MINUTES!
Now Tubularsock know you techies will have questions about this set up but don’t ask. A. It’s not important and B. The reason for this round about way was the only option under NSA guidelines.
So the major question Tubularsock has after this imbecilic-travesty-on-truth that was presented as a “debate” is:
WHAT FUCKING PLANET ARE THESE PEOPLE FROM?
And even worse ……… are the messed-up-media-spinners and the opinionated brain dead American public THAT STUPID?????????
It is really beyond rational comprehension. These two political-clowns represent “LEADERSHIP” to the American populous? Really?
You know that old well used statement of Albert Einstein comes into play once again,
That being said ……….. the fanatic-fanciful-fantasy continues.
