Because I worry that Haloscan may implode before blogger does, I feel compelled to preserve SteveG‘s comment on Patrick’s ode to his HDTV for digital posterity:

It may be a non-standard interpretation, but there are some scholars who consider “alienation from oneself as a species being” to be a mistranslation of “not getting decent reception on channel sechs oder acht.” Of course, Marx was writing back in the times when they had rabbit ears…

Happy independence day!

(For five minutes)

(Then I played Katamari Damarcy)

(A Japanese game)

(About rolling everything in sight into a ball)

(There’s an ironic metaphor in their somewhere….)
