Glenn Beck: Phantom of the HDTV

Something terrifying just happened.  I was sitting alone in the living room in my parent’s house.  Typing out an article for an upcoming deadline.  Down the hall my dad was listening to the Phantom of the Opera soundtrack on repeat.  “The Deadliest Catch” was playing on the TV, but I wasn’t particularly watching it.  I was engrossed in writing.  And then, I looked up from my laptop, and all of a sudden, the station had changed inexplicably from Discovery to…Fox News.  From rough and tumble crab fishermen in the Bering Sea, to this decidedly different breed of man:

Turns out my dad records Beck, who he says Has his act together, daily on the DVR.

Turns out my dad records Beck, who he says "Has his act together," daily on the DVR. Resulting in his showing up unwelcome in my afternoon. Sigh.

    My dad loves him. And Mark Harmon. The only shows he records are Beck’s and NCIS. I will never understand.

  3. Mark Harmon was once the Sexiest Man of the Year, and his sister sold Tic Tacs, so I get it.

    G.B. gives me the heebie-geebies when he cries.

  4. I always get dyslexic while trying to talk about those CSI shows.
