A Year Without Television

The entire year 2011 went by and I never watched a single TV show. We had DirecTV with HD and when we moved we decided not to move the service. Oh, DirecTV tried to talk us into keeping it but they were not persuasive. Far more persuasive was the idea of no television at all, being free of all the noise, the ads, the endless flipping of channels.

A year has passed and I don't miss TV at all. I never think about it. I think about the book I am reading. I think about the book I just read. I think about the book I'm looking forward to reading next.

If you've contemplated cutting the cable, I encourage you to do it. You will not regret it.

Thinking of posting a comment to this blog entry? That's nice. But please note: As of January 19. 2014, I no longer review comments. So they will never appear. So don't bother. If you want to comment on something you read here, go to twitter and write your comment there and just include "@brianstorms" in the tweet. I am no longer moderating the comments here; I just assume everything is spam and Intense Debate seems to have abandoned support for its product.
