1. Overslept ergo too late on getting coffee ergo MIGRAINE CITY.
2. I haven't had cable TV in years so basically I know nothing about TV commercials, especially those from the superbowl, outside of what Nationwide does (because Nationwide owns downtown Columbus, also DEAD CHILLUNS), whatever turns into internet memes, or whatever I catch via Youtube ads. Having recently re-disable adblock on Youtube because I felt like a prick, I've been seeing some commercials. Impressions are still:
> The only brands with enough money to have significant ad presence are the ones that already heave so much market presence that they don't need it.
> TV ads are viciously stupid and tend to either adopt gross dudebro aesthetics or blandly harmless faux-indie aesthetics (oh hey it's that anonymous song with the whistling and chirpy guitar again!)
> In general TV ads are this creepy funhouse mirror image of western society that only serve to make me happier that I've decided to drop out of it so I can just walk around in the park looking at neat bugs and roses. Heirloom roses cultivars are da bomb, yo.
3. I keep seeing vegetarian meatballs called "meatless meatballs." Why not just call them "meatless balls."
4. Related but I tried meatless fish out of curiosity and it was close enough to what I remember the real thing tasting like that I noped out after a very small bite. Curse my inner foodie driving me to try stuff I know I won't like out of morbid curiosity.
