09 December, 2003


It's currently almost 6:30PM. I should be watching The Simpsons. Instead, my local FOX affiliate has their newscrew in full-effect, talking about....The Great Earthquake of 2003!

Oh wait, it's not that great. It was 4.5 on the Richter scale. And it happened in Richmond, more than 100 miles from here. And it happened THREE FUCKING HOURS AGO!!!! Please, shut the FUCK up about it, already. Stop trying to make the news happen. Let it go.



  1. They should replay footage of the Great Flood of 2003 too.

  2. It was the first earthquake I ever felt and even I don't think it's important enough to preempt the Simpsons.Do you know if the one they play at 11PM is the same as the 6PM one? I always miss the early one.

  3. nope, the 11PM episode is different than the 6 or 6:30 episode. in fact, while those two episodes tend to be from the same time period, the 11 o'clock will usually be something entirely different. for a few weeks, FOX was doing "Best of character" weeks at 11.
