17 Channels and nothing on

I've just seen the Christmas Day TV screenings....guess what I won't be doing!

In light of this I thought I'd express my feelings in my shot '17 Channels and nothing on' and pay homage to 'The Boss' - Mr Bruce Springsteen's excellent song '57 Channels (And Nothin' On) - here are his lyrics below-

'I bought a bourgeois house in the Hollywood hills
With a truckload of hundred thousand dollar bills
Man came by to hook up my cable TV
We settled in for the night my baby and me
We switched 'round and 'round 'til half-past dawn
There was fifty-seven channels and nothin' on
Well now home entertainment was my baby's wish
So I hopped into town for a satellite dish
I tied it to the top of my Japanese car
I came home and I pointed it out into the stars
A message came back from the great beyond
There's fifty-seven channels and nothin' on
Well we might'a made some friends with some billionaires
We might'a got all nice and friendly if we'd made it upstairs
All I got was a note that said "bye-bye John
Our love is fifty-seven channels and nothin' on"
So I bought a .44 magnum it was solid steel cast
And in the blessed name of Elvis well I just let it blast
'Til my TV lay in pieces there at my feet
And they busted me for disturbing the almighty peace
Judge said "What you got in your defense son?"
"Fifty-seven channels and nothin' on"
I can see by your eyes friend you're just about gone
Fifty-seven channels and nothin' on'

Songwriter: Bruce Springsteen

I haven't had a TV for several years. Conscious decision. Some people are surprised that I don't recognize the so-called stars and you can't talk to me about series. But I have time for walks with a camera!
