Cleversimon Summarizes Charlie Brooker

Cleversimon on this curious piece by Charlie Brooker:

Charlie Brooker’s thesis is “I hate Windows, but I hate strawmen Mac evangelists more, so I’m going to marinate in my misery just to stick it to these imaginary fanboys. I’m unhappy and unproductive, and I’m going to stay unhappy and unproductive — that’ll show ’em.”

(Via the Macalope.)

Update: Clearly, yes, Brooker is not entirely serious, and I’m aware that his schtick is that of the angry contrarian who hates everything. But that doesn’t negate the truth of Cleversimon’s summary.
