I recently got a call from our satellite provider offering us a free upgrade to a new dish and receiver as well as DVR. I was tempted to take them up on it, since it'd only be about $10 more a month, but then I figured all that would do is allow me the option of putting off my boredom with TV until a later time...is it worth $10 a month just to be bored at my own leisure?

TV pretty much sucks these days. There are a few shows that are exceptions to the rule, but overall...it's pretty craptastic. I mean, they don't even show Saturday morning cartoons anymore. Who would have thought that I would live to see that sacred time desecrated?

Well, there's not much I can do about except start making cartoons myself I guess...and my lunch hour isn't long enough for me to have enough time to get started on that project...yet.

As is mine...but only in the sense that it's invisible to the human eye.

They don't have cartoons on Sat. mornings? Shocked

Turn your TV off for a couple of years and the industry flushes itself! Rolling Eyes
