Eclectic TV Viewing

I'm not sure what's going on in my head... but I think I was the only person in America tonight flipping the TV between two completely disparate shows: the premier of "Jersey Shore" season 2 & "Who Really Discovered America" documentary on History Channel.

I avoided watching "Jersey Shore" last season out of principle, like I've refused to see the movie "Titanic". The only bit I saw was when Snookie got punched in the face. Somehow I got sucked into this season opener, though.

Earlier I was over my parent's house watching TV w/ my Dad. There, I was alternating between the Phillies game & the Monterey Pop Festival film. This was actually the first time I've seen the whole Jimi Hendrix's "Wild Thing" performance where he burned his guitar. In high school, I had a T-shirt w/ the image of him kneeling behind his flaming guitar, but had only seen posters & photos.

My Dad turned me on to the classic rock greats, so it's cool to watch footage from the time. Everyone was so wacked out of their skulls. Damn dirty hippies...
