It's like...it's like I've already got an appointment for the contractors to come and redo my bathroom. Does it really matter that much that one of my faucet handles just snapped off in my hand? I mean...sure, it'll be that much more inconvenient, but is it really worth doing anything about at this point? It won't make the contractor come any faster.
So recently I was looking for something to keep me extremely passively occupied, and I discovered that I can stream episodes of The A-Team from Netflix. I'm...I'm not sure how I feel about that. I mean, I won't go so far as to deny having watched a couple episodes, but...I really don't think I can make a habit of it. I mean...that way madness lies. What caught my eye about that, actually, is that I saw that it somehow has a parental guideline rating of "TV-14." WHAT?! "Parents Strongly Cautioned"? Seriously? This is from the official description of the rating: "This program contains some material that many parents would find unsuitable for children under 14 years of age. Parents are strongly urged to exercise greater care in monitoring this program and are cautioned against letting children under the age of 14 watch unattended." Really? I mean...this is where we are as a people? I was watching this show in the first grade. I mean, granted, whenever I put together Ikea furniture, I like it to be done as a footage montage overlaid by my theme music, but come on. TV-14. Jesus.
Amazingly enough, unrelated to that particular experience, I happened to be surfing around looking at intros to old 80s cartoon shows. You know...like I do from time to time. In doing so, I realized that while there were many, many examples of theme songs that were basically iconic of that particular era and genre of television, there were also some things that could better be described as victims of that particular culture. Ladies, gentlemen, I give you...the opening theme to M.A.S.K..
