All of whom [sic] are complete strangers to me.
So basically you don't watch TV or movies?

My family never had a TV when I was growing up. I have never owned a TV in my life. About the only time I watch TV is when I am in a motel which is extremely seldom.

I do not ever remember ever seeing anything worth watching, so do not miss it at all.

I seldom have ever seen any films either.  And have no way to watch any even if I wanted to.

So, basically you can say I am "culturally" stunted and out of touch with all of the bullshit that is being poured into the heads of everyone else.

@mmerlinn,

Your post has been stuck there for a couple of days...  it reminds me sitting on the pavement/sidewalk and watching the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II on the only TV in the street.

I agree with your views about TV and also do not have one because I find watching is like "chewing gum for the brain" :)

I use my iPad to watch selected movies.  I was once an avid biker and currently watching Apple's Free TV Channel series of  Long Way Across, Long Way Down and Long Way Up because it reminds me of my Hippy Trail from UK to Kathmandu :)

Happy days :)

I missed that, as my dad was still in the process of constructing
our television set. My terminology may be incorrect but I believe
it used a war surplus cathode ray tube.

The first time that I saw it working was on boat race day. The
cathode ray tube had a magnifying glass in front of it and I had
to go under a black out curtain to see the picture.  It obviously
needed some fine tuning as the image  was upside down  and
double decker buses going across the London  bridges appeared
to be like caterpillars in their movement. I was mesmerised.
Unfortunately that did not last long,  since that day television has
sunk to the depths and we now wallow in  two hundred channels
of excrement.

The nearest I got to Kathmandu was reading...

Laurence Cherniak's
The Great Books of Hashish
Volume 1: Book 1



How on earth did I end up at Sitepoint?  ???
