Other crap that's on my mind.

A website about things you probably don't care about, but I do so shove it.

Cable a No Go

Since I don't plan on staying in my new hood for too long (3-6 months) I'm wondering if I should even bother getting cable, since it was never installed in my new apartment. That probably means extra fees, and waiting 3 hours for a cable guy and geez, I only watch like 5 shows these days. All of which I can and do see on the internet.

So why waste $50-$100 a month? For Degrassi? For Project Runway? For Lost?

I rather not.

And you'd think, but wait Barrie aren't you in advertising? Don't you need the television for inspiration? Can't you even deduct it from your taxes? And the answers for all those questions are yes, yes and yes.

But again, that's what the internet is for. I see all the good commercials, thanks to Adcritic, leaving you people without Tivo to suffer through all the Carpet Cleaners spots, all the crap that's now on 500 channels and whatever else is corrupting our brains, telling us to buy, buy, buy.

So I think I'm making the right choice. Except when I saw Project Runway yesterday at Dominic's and realized how much I missed infomercials. Because who doesn't want Kinoki Detox Foot Pads. I know I sure as fuck do!

I must tell you that life without cable has been grand. Just fine for me in fact. I do have netflix, but I know if I had cable, I would just waste hours scrolling and channel surfing. Although, I would love soapnet for the oh so bad but good, BH90210. I've been watching season 3 from my netflix, and the love triangle is just getting started now.

Have a good weekend!
