Recently, we canceled our cable service…and, you know, with Netflix, everything’s cool.
In fact, it’s so much more than cool…it’s f-ing excellent!
I haven’t felt inadequate for not HAVING things. I don’t need a new TV, i don’t need a new iPod, i don’t need the latest computer, or the newest video game…all the things i have are in working order and i still enjoy them. I find it amazing the things that control our lives…the things we consume also consume us…
a life without commercials…i’m pretty sure i have never experienced this…in fact, i’m sure i never have. What an incredibly liberating feeling!
With Netflix, i can still watch the mind-rotting television garbage, but not feel so bad about my life 🙂
I still get to watch Stargate SG-1, Doctor Who, Babylon 5…all that lovely Sci-Fi nonsense.
I still can’t seem to get over the fact that i’m actually a happier person as a result of not having commercials during my TV-time. Is it the lack of constant bombardment about consuming? Or is it that i can actually pay attention to the show i’m watching?
I’ve also found that i’ve gotten pickier about what i watch. Without the constant interruptions that commercials bring, i find that my attention is still in tune with what’s going on. I tried to watch LOST on TV and i just didn’t get it because of a 5 second clip i missed. Damnit! But, on Netflix, i can just pause it and do my thing 🙂
Conclusions have always been my downfall…i just never know where to end…so…
train of though has reached the end of its track for tonight.
