Over a year without TV
    #4409715 - 07/15/05 11:32 PM (11 years, 4 months ago)

It's been over a year since I've had TV. I decided that cable internet was more important. The only TV I've watched in the past year is at someone else's house or shows that I've downloaded on the net. I'm not as informed about the world and popular culture, but I'm not as angry either.

Anyone else not have TV beside me?

I have my TV on all the time, but it's more like ambient noise. I never really pay attention to what's on.

I have a TV but I don't watch too often.  Only my favorite shows like South Park and Aqua Teen Hunger Force.  I also watch a lot of movies on TV, and on my TV but through my DVD player.  :smile:  I enjoy having one but cable sure is expensive!

I watch on average an hour of tv a week.
Except when there's hockey on, when there's hockey on I watch every game I can.

I don't know if that counts or not. Judges?

That shit makes me paranoid. I don't want my unconscious mind to be exposed to advertisements and mindless babble.

Yeah, that's probably how subliminal messages are truly designed to work.  Hah.  :shocked:

I have a TV, but I don't have cable or even get any channels.  I haven't really been exposed to television in a few years unless I'm at someone elses house.  I rent movies sometimes, but I never know what's good because I never see previews on TV!

I downloaded a few seasons of Trailer Park Boys and burned them to watch, and I almost have the entire collection of Friends on DVD.  I usually fall asleep when I watch TV, tho.    I think it's because my brain shuts down and my body soon follows suit.  Even when I go to the movies I always fall asleep in the theater.  :grin:

Regular television is bad for your brain, unless it is the news..or the simpsons.. it is better to go watch a good movie on cable or rent a movie..cable TV is a lot more tolerable..

Oh yeah, I forgot that I do see tapes and DVDs that people let me borrow.  I can't wait until the new Bill Maher HBO stand up special called "I'm Swiss" coming Saturday, July 30 at 10 pm.!  :thumbup: :thumbup:

Actually, I watch some regular television for just for a few minutes and it pisses me off watching it...because of all the reality shows now days...
Yes I like comedy acts too, they are awesome...just regular television bites...

I decided to be tv free for a year and its been around 11 months and I'm happy. I've had some impressive results. Now I have a tv for a month, but I only play video games on it :smile:

I have a TV but no cable or satellite, just a couple of local channels (PBS and NBC mainly) that it picks up, so I don't watch much TV.

Mainly just listen to the radio and surf the web.
