Truly an odd juxtaposition in the Datebook (entertainment) section of today’s San Francisco Chronicle, in the top and bottom portions of the leftmost column:
In the bottom half, Mark Morford (who I can only describe as an extreme opposite of Rush Limbaugh, and that’s not a compliment) reveals his “great idea for the [video] iPod”–and thinks he’s the first to come up with it.
But in the top half, Tim Goodman, the Chronicle‘s TV reviewer, includes as a secondary item the same idea (about halfway down the column).
To wit, in both cases, porn on the go.
I would never have thought of that (OK, I lead a sheltered life), but they both make good points. (I’m not that fond of Goodman’s writing, but compared to Morford, he’s a master of prose. You can dig Morford’s points out of his unfortunate style, I think.) Namely, what else would people really pay good money to watch on a postage-stamp screen?
Ah, it’s Friday.
