Tim Robbins is in Colombia promoting his stage version of George Orwell's 1984. Robbins started blathering on and said that he had a television once but that he began hating people too much and got rid of it three years ago and has not watched a second of television since. Wasn't this about the time things started going south with Susan Sarandon? She probably got tired of his ranting. Apparently he was sitting in front of the television yelling at it for two hours a day. He says it was because of George Bush. Umm, here is an idea. Why don't you turn the channel from a 24 hour news channel and turn it on Family Guy. No more yelling or hate. It is like he assumed the only option was to rid himself entirely of the television. Why not just change your programming tastes? Probably Susan tried to explain this to him and he would have none of it and she would have none of him any longer. Well, that and a newly developed love of very young ping pong players.

Tim also hinted that he lives without a cell phone, but, he is just as attached to that thing as everyone else. He says that he fears cell phones because "they" can find you anywhere. And when he refers to they he means???
