One Tree Hill and The Velocet
So next week (2/13 I believe) my band has a song on the show One Tree Hill. I've never seen a single episode of the show, but apparently it's very popular with the teeny boppers. I recently recorded an episode and attempted to view it. They began the episode with a "...previously on One Tree Hill..." montage and I, for a brief moment, thought that would be helpful in getting a gist for the program. Man, was I ever wrong. What followed was the longest, most overwrought, over dramatic, cluster fuck in the history of television. It started off simply enough: two high school kids playing basketball, maybe a little tension there, but then it just jumps right off a cliff. There was boy fights, girl fights, drunk driving, car accidents, teen pregnancy, tramp-stamping, two different marriage proposals, one acceptance, one shotgun wedding, and I'm pretty sure one guy died from a heart attack. All of this, mind you, occurred on the previous episode - or so they would lead you to believe. Needless to say, I gave up and threw my television out the window. But please, if you're a fan, watch next week and listen for "Chinatown." Then throw your TV out the window.
