He is right, but I think when you reach a certain age and you truly come to terms with the fact that you're not going to live forever, you probably won't be able to retire till you're 75, and really will never get round to reading / playing / watching all that unread / unplayed / unwatched stuff, it's time to reign in your spending and start spending your disposable income on the essential things in life.

Y'know like wine, women and song.

Didn't realise Newswipe was back on. I don't like it as much as Screenwipe but he is still on good form.

This week he takes it to celebs in the news.

Man, that Studio 5 show looks painful.

He'd probably baulk at the fact but I have to say that Charlie Brooker does remind me of Clarkson at times, particularly in that piece.

But yes, he does make a fair point. I have to confess I did recently hear about a friend who'd broken her ankle and rather than thinking how crap it'd be confined to your bed recovering, instead thought 'Think how many books I could read in that time!'.

I've generally addressed it by just not buying so much stuff - can't remember the last DVD I bought and I think I've bought about three games in the last nine months. And still I have DVD's to watch and a stack of books to read. I was making good progress until the missus very kindly bought me three more to read for Christmas. :)
