The Illusion of Time, Television, and its Distortion

THIS one is a real treat. Popped up when I was trying to orientate myself earlier:  Where am I? 

I’ve been watching daytime television for almost a month now. Somehow it helps some people. But for others – it is a death sentence for others. The Soul is quietly poisoned. Imperceptibly, to all except the Soul. So how could the Soul possibly communicate this?

Detours!

So since I’m not a whiz when it comes to Arithmetic and there is plenty of evidence of 3rd grade math skills …

But at some point, I looked at the colorful figures, doing chic cooking shows, talking among themselves and by projection to you – That satisfies many.  

But others are not satisfied. Others continue to wander and roam, picking other interesting flowers. 

But at some point, you’re actually listening to what they’re saying, and it catches your attention. Something about Chestnut Season and you realize you have no idea what year it is. 
Wait a minute.  Is 2012 over? Or are we still running the reruns?

I Ain’t Got TV Today —

And that.

SUCKS.

Not that I spend much time there.  I flip between HBO and Max and spend more time there than actually watching movies, since I’m always hoping they will put something new on!  Those subscriber channels are suffering from the Disease of Redundancy.  It’s a human affliction.  We cannot tolerate too much redundancy in our lives.  And especially in those areas where we expect to entertain ourselves.  That gets old quickly.

But I am one of those subscribers — for better, or worse.

I think it’s time I renew my Netflix subscription.  I missed that so much when I was in Europe over the span of 8 months.  Before I left for Europe, I wallowed in Netflix movies which I viewed on my computer — much better for me since I am bad about returning stuff — and loved every minute of it.

So here I am once again, starving for good movies to ingest.

But in the meantime, since I at least have Internet access, I find myself being more productive, writing more pieces — as much as I don’t feel I have to.  I mean I would be rather watching a good movie than writing!  Well.  Maybe not.
