Talking Head Tsunami

Nightmare, this time of year here in France. Election time I'm talking about, unless you love watching a million people talking and talking about politics pretty much non-stop, 24/7.

And the French love talking politics. The TV is full of talking heads as it is, people blah-blahing on channel after channel, so this is just a slight change of emphasis.

What's the most difficult to swallow is that politicians in particular, and their interviewers often enough, insist on talking all at the same time, so you end up with a bunch of people shouting over each other and you can't understand a thing, and this is considered good programming.

Obviously I can simply ignore TV, which is what I do most of the time, but sometimes you can't escape it.

The problem is, with the massively increased personalitification à l'Americaine of the whole thing, you end up getting caught up in the process as you get interested in the people involved, which is yet another major waste of creative time of course, and particularly futile for someone who can´t even vote in the country.

So spare a thought for your Paris correspondent trying to stay productive as the full weight of the French presidential election process does its best to throw me off course. Only two or three months of braincell bombardment to go. Good grief.

And why not...
