We live in a time where the most boring things are not actually boring.
We live on the Internet, where we can listen to any show on YouTube.
We can watch the latest episode of “Game of Thrones” and then go to bed and wake up the next morning to a show called “Downton Abbey.”
We live with smartphones, which are everywhere, but the most common form of electronic entertainment is the TV.
It’s not only the most watched entertainment in America, it’s the most-watched entertainment in the world.
If we were to put the most popular shows on one channel and a new show on the other, we’d have a new-age show called, well, I don’t know, “The Last Ship.”
And, sure, you might get the most laughs, but that’s because you’re the only person watching the show.
It’ll never get old.
We’re living in a world where people are constantly talking about something that is boring.
It feels like a very empty place.
So, how do we get our attention?
What’s the best way to do that?
This is the question that Billie Eilish, the British TV presenter and writer, is going to explore with her new book, The Most Boring Thing You Ever Read.
It explores how television, and specifically the way it’s delivered to us via streaming, is the perfect vehicle for her message of “not being bored.”
I recently spoke to Eilishes co-author, Jules Gosset, about what she and Eillish hope to accomplish with the book.
In this conversation, we discuss Eilises desire to create an accessible book for people to read and listen to, her thoughts on the rise of online television, the importance of books and the power of storytelling, and the importance to be a writer in order to write for entertainment.
Let’s start with her idea of entertainment.
Eilis’ idea of entertaining was always one that was completely different from the world that we live in, the reality of what we’re up against.
She said, “I think entertainment is about being entertained.”
I think it’s about the ability to be entertained and to feel connected to a place that you’re in.
Eils own parents are all in and out of hospitals.
She says that when they went through that and her parents were separated, they went to her sister’s house in London, because they were so desperate to get home.
She was in hospital for three days straight.
She has a friend who is also a writer.
And so, she felt like, “Oh, my god, I’m really lucky, and I can do this.
I’m just going to do this.”
She got in touch with a writer who was writing her book and he said, Well, what if you could write a book about this?
So, she started to write, and that’s how The Most Interesting Man in the World came about.
It was about that, and she went on to write her book.
She’s very much in the tradition of how writers have written.
But she said, When I write, I get really lucky.
I get a sense of what’s interesting, and then I write it.
And it’s also an act of love.
Eiles said, I write because I want to have fun.
That’s why I’m so interested in doing this, because I’m writing because I have to have the freedom to be interesting.
EILISH: How do you feel about the way the world is presented?
GOSSET: Well, I think that what we are in a situation right now is a very unhealthy world.
It is a world that is not really good for people.
We have to live in the information age.
We cannot go about our lives as we used to, and if we do, we are being manipulated into doing things that we don’t want to do.
We don’t feel connected, we don, we’re being controlled by our phones and our TVs.
We feel like, What am I supposed to do?
And that’s the challenge for me.
I can’t think about it, but it’s something that’s very personal for me as well, because it’s not like I’m thinking about the fact that I can never do what I want.
But I think there’s a way that we can create an environment where we feel connected and where we’re not afraid to make choices that we are very conscious about.
I think the way we do it is that we’re using television to be connected, to feel good, to connect with people, and to connect to the world around us.
We are not allowed to make mistakes and to make our own choices, and it’s an interesting place to be.
EILESS: I’m wondering if it’s possible to go back in time, but how much of a difference will that make to how we see ourselves?
Gossets: I think we’ve all seen a lot of changes
