I had this tv for over 11 years..
I inherited it from my grandfather..
some people get a small fortune in their inheritance, some people get a house, a car, maybe a breakdancing llama who can quote passages from the Koran.. maybe.. just maybe.. (cross your fingers) you get y'self a performing monkey.. (and maybe it could also quote passages from the Koran.. or fukkit, even just get it to quote the bus timetables.. it's a FREAKING PERFORMING MONKEY people!!) but no, I got none of those.. I got me a tv..
and hey.. I couldn't be happier..
this tv has served me well these last 11 years.. so many lifelong memories.. every episode of THE X-FILES, FRIENDS, BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER, SEINFELD, THE SIMPSONS on THIS ere humble little tv.. *sniff*.. so many memories, 80's SANYO.. I will miss you so..
yup.. it glimmered it's very last, on Thursday 16th of December.. it blew the picture tube..
all sound, no visual.. it was a TV no more, it had gone to meet it's maker, it was an x-tv, it had shuffled off it's mortal cathode, pushing up the daisies, six feet under (but unable to televise it), kaput, kersplat, kerplunk.. JENGA!
but, never fear kiddies!
today, I bought me a brand new shiny tv and golly gosh are these new fangled tv's a thing to behold.. such wonders we could not image in the smelly 'ol 80's.. sure, it's only a 34cm screen midget, some cheapo brand.. ("ROWA" anyone??) but wow.. it's got stereo speakers!
a freakin' REMOTE!! (which is so terribly useless since I sit maybe 2 feet away from the fucking thing.. hahahhaha) a whole bunch of wizbang useless features.. like a calender, a timer, 260 channel presets (and I only got 5 channels.. wooo!) damn.. this thing's insane.. (and if only the antenna I bought with it didn't totally suck testicles.. it'd REALLY ROCK.. hmmm.. thank gawd for receits aye? ;) )
but.. wot really pushes it screaming over the edge..?
this freaking tv.. can play TETRIS!
yes.. that's right.. a tv, with it's own inbuilt TETRIS..
how freaking COOL is that!?
yeah.. sure.. I miss me old tv..
but this new tv fooken ROCKS yo!
