trash vs literature

I watch TV. Not as much as I used to, but I can't stay away from The 
Simpsons or West Wing or Law and Order or Alias or Buffy. I've given up 
on ER and Will and Grace this year, though.

(I'm doing both Alias and Buffy on DVD because I didn't get started at 
the beginning, though)

And, if you folks like Monty Python and the Goodies, I might recommend 
a Canadian troupe called "The Kids in the Hall." They're not on the air 
anymore, but the first two seasons are out on DVD. Very Pythonesque - 
right down to the cross-dressing (which they do stunningly well).

Blessed Cecelia, appear in visions
To all musicians, appear and inspire:
Translated Daughter, come down and startle
Composing mortals with immortal fire.
