This is interesting.  I bet a lot of folks in our community can relate to this:

I have never owned a TV. I suppose it's done more to instill a sense of freedom in me than any other choice I've made in life.

I have owned several TVs and I am free to watch them or not watch them, depending on my whims.

Have you ever noticed when watching computer stuff on YouTube that it is very much like watching TV , except that we have a little more control over content and the ability to skip forward or back. When I first got a smartphone, one of the big selling features was that it works like a little TV sometimes.

My friend claims to not watch TV. She sometimes watches up to three movies in an evening binge. She watches these things on her TV

I have been part of these movie marathons, and haven't even tried to tell myself that I'm not watching TV.

...and as John Prine says     "blow up your tv, throw away the paper, move to the country, build you a home.....plant a little garden, eat a lot of peaches........"

I happen to be watching old alan watts videos lately...he has a lot to say that I can relate to and I think some permaculture type thinking.  Just passed on our Bukowski to our oldest son
 
Ever since I found this suit I've felt strange new needs. And a tiny ad:
