The Vast Wasteland

Sheila's rantings, most likely of no interest, on TV, movies, books, music, etc.

I live in Seattle, am married, have two cats (one is a genius, the other insane), and am a mild-mannered copy editor by day. I love horseback riding, coffee, reading, TV, movies, music, playing (too much) World of Warcraft, and lying on the couch. This isn't a personal blog, but rather a place for me to vent about movies, TV shows, books, music, etc. Thanks for checking in!

Introduction

Hullo and welcome to my reviews!

I'm not comfortable revealing a lot of personal information on the internet. However, I am going to subject you to my rantings, most likely of no interest, on TV, movies, books, music, etc.

Many thanks to my dear husband for the title of this blog, and the quote it's taken from:
"When television is good, nothing--not the theater, not the magazines or newspapers--nothing is better. But when television is bad, nothing is worse. I invite you to sit down in front of your television set when your station goes on the air and stay there without a book, magazine, newspaper, profit-and-loss sheet or rating book to distract you--and keep your eyes glued to that set until the station signs off. I can assure you that you will observe a vast wasteland." (From the Wasteland Speech, given by FCC chairman Newton N. Minow on May 9, 1961.)
