memo to the television industry

To whom it may concern,

No, I am not interested in obtaining or even thinking about a new HDTV receiver/converter. With the current downward spiral in TV programming content, your presumption that there will actually be something I care to watch in a couple of years is quite humorous. Please cease all efforts to sell me what you think I need. If faced with the loss of TV signal in the future due to the age of my still perfectly functioning 1970-1980 vintage sets, I will weigh the cost of the technology required against the value of the programming being transmitted and make a decision. Until then, just know that because you have already canceled so many of the programs I enjoyed at one time or another that I could stop watching you at any time and not feel the loss.

Or maybe you might understand this better – *BLIP*


About Marcus

Who me? Introverted, neurotic, self-absorbed, increasingly cynical observer of human nature and part time social critic in hiding. Most of my life spent avoiding growing up. The naive idealistic passions of youth have evolved into the eclectic eccentricities of adulthood. Northeast Florida small-town native, related to people I can't relate to. Simultaneously my own best friend and worst enemy. Politically and spiritually unaffiliated, my personal ideologies put me all over the map or off it completely.
