Even though we pay for super-duper Internet, we don’t pay for cable TV – mainly because we are addicted enough to the Internet, we don’t need another electronic opiate in the house. So I’ve missed out on American Idol, Gray’s Anatomy and other things I don’t even know about. I still follow celebrity gossip happily, but I often have no idea why the people I’m reading about are famous.
However, I was hungering a bit for some Olympic action, so Jeremy went out and bought some rabbit ears, and I just can’t believe the quality of broadcast digital TV. It’s beautiful!
Vince has also discovered broadcast TV – so we’ve gotten a few, “I can’t leave now, it’s time for my cartoon!” We have not yet succumbed to Tivo, which I believe only works with cable and not rabbit ears. Perhaps we’ll have to hitch the old VCR to tape some digital broadcast TV cartoons. Talk about retro…
I mowed the lawn today.
