I get a new DVD.
I put it in. It begins to play.
There is always this sort of painful disk ramping up and shooting through pre-ad crap and previews while a new disk warms up.
I do not always mind the previews. Mostly they are annoying but once in a while one is interesting.
But this is not previews. This is —
A bunch of people dressed up like death wandering around a park and all falling down dead while some announcer drones on about how I should not smoke.
I get harassed everywhere I go about smoking. I cannot smoke inside. So I smoke outside. This gives freak strangers some kind of sociopathic imperitive to come up and harass me about my smokes. Which I put up with. Graciously by the way. I turn on the TV? More of freaking anti-smoking swish. Which I put up with. Graciously by the way. But WHEN I BUY A DVD WITH MY OWN CASH AND GO TO WATCH IT IN MY OWN HOME I SHOULD NOT HAVE TO PUT UP WITH GOD DAMN ANTI SMOKING SWISH.
*btw i want every freakoid who ever thought it was appropriate to harass a smoker to go get a reading on the exhaust output of his or her automobile i am pretty damn sure my smokes are not killing as many people as your car is.
