As seen on TV
Life is so different out here in the world. Living out in the woods, sometimes I forget how disconnected from contemporary culture I am.
A case in point: “As seen on TV.” I had to pick up some medications for my dad at the local mega drugstore. While wandering around all the shiny things on display I came across a huge section of stuff supposedly seen on TV. I don't even have a connection to commercial TV at my home out in the woods. My lovely wife and I do watch some Netflix shows now and then, but they don't have advertisements.
Apparently there's an awful lot of junk for sale. Maybe they look good TV with an attractive spokesperson promoting them. Just sitting there on the shelf . . . wow . . . what a lot of crap!
It's a strange world we live in. Entertainment and news is financed by the peddling of useless things built in China. No wonder our programs are so awful. Of course, there are fewer people watching less hours. Eventually the whole business model will fall apart.
I've been staying at my dad's and he has commercial TV. I watched just enough to realize advertisement is more than junk trinkets. Here in Florida it's also about doctors, lawyers, car dealerships, erectile dysfunction medication and sink hole repair.
Modern civilization looks like a shallow and trivial existence -as seen on TV.
I live in an area of NH known as the Great North Woods. I'm in my dome-i-cile out in the county with my lovely wife and a varying number of family and friends
-part red neck, part hippie but all country. Experimenting and enjoying the adventure of life.
