Good-bye Television ... It was great while it lasted.

Today I started listing all the movies I've ever seen. Thousands. Well that aint too bad ... maybe 5% of my lifetime.

Then I started on TV. Holy $#!+. I spent how much of my life on TV hours?

I just gave it up. I will now make a list of TV shows to buy when I retire. Until then, I'm going back to living life.

You might think that I watch too many movies, but that 5% also includes movies that I've seen on TV/Cable, but doesn't include reruns, and neither did the TV listing.

I'm going to allow myself one new movie, and one old movie per week MAX. That'll be about 3%.

Of course that will not include any time I'll be writing. I've become disconnected from the real world and it's time to hop back in.

I recently limited myself to one movie a day. Hasn't worked yet.

I'm getting about 2 movies a week plus it seems about an hour of TV randomly.
