The Power of TiVo
I have a theory: All those people who stop blogging or go on long, mysterious hiati do so because they buy TiVos and can’t tear themselves away from the small screen. I know my productivity has suffered immensely since I brought home the greatest bit of technology ever invented (including television itself).

So immense is TiVo’s power, apparently, that it is able to read my blog. I can find no other reason why it would have recorded an (utterly crap) episode of Tales From the Crypt that starred Mariel Hemingway. I’ve never watched—and I've certainly never recorded—any shows with any similarity to Tales From the Crypt, BUT six days ago, I did mention that Mariel, circa 1982, would be one of my three. Now that’s software.
