In what seemed like a moment right out of a Twilight Zone episode, LAist was recently privy to an entertainment industry conversation that did not mention TiVo, the TiVo service or whether or not TiVo stock was a smart investment...whatsoever.

The six suit-laden professionals, assembled for an after-work drink, exhibited all the signs of the "self-importance disease," which usually goes hand-in-hand with possessing Blackberries, belt-holstered cell phones, Bluetooth earpieces and an outward love for all things TiVo. However, on the night in question, there was no mention of the superior TV digital recording technology.

LAist is unsure if this means something ominous for the city of Los Angeles, or if we have suddenly found ourselves in an alternate dimension where recording ones favorite television shows with the push of a button is no longer as important as life itself... But you can imagine we will be following this trend and provide you with the up-to-the-minute details as they become available to us.
