Honestly, if I got a job at another TV company, I would be happy to have TV. I like Sports!


Also, the Oscars.
Anais is the Coolest Butterfly I know  ;D

I want to take the plunge and cancel DirecTV.  I already have netflix, hulu+, and amazon prime....I'm just scared.  I need some words of encouragement.

The roommate and I have promised to take the DVRs back down to Comcast and just go internet for like 3 years now. It's kind of a sore spot with me because I hardly watch anything, but he's an internet newb and all his sports and hunting shows are right there.

There are a few things I would miss...Daily Show and Colbert as soon as it comes out.  Jeopardy.  Big events like the Oscars.

There is a service offered in my area called Aereo.  It records your local TV and lets you watch it online.  I just signed up to try it out.  It's $8/month.

New episodes of some cable shows will be a pain to miss.  I guess I'll just have to do a lot of torrenting for those.

Yeah the wife has been looking into something similar but she wants to watch her Spanish channels and so far she's mixed on the idea, but $8 compared to over $50 per month ain't bad :o

When I dropped down to limited basic cable I felt the same, but it's pretty easy to just get in the habit of watching online the next evening.

That is supposed to go live in Philly soon, I'm debating if I should get it and drop even my limited basic cable where I only get the locals.  Only issue is there are a ton of court cases against Aereo and if the big networks win Aereo will have to shut down.

I just buy season passes for the few I like on Amazon VOD, I only like about a half dozen shows so basically the cost of one month of regular cable covers buying all of those.  I'd rather support the few shows I like than find a way to get them for free.

I like how the Weather Channel seems convinced that Colorado Springs isn't getting more than an inch of snow. Pretty sure we're at about an inch and a half today, and the snow is coming down fast and thick...

Well they had a problem predicting their own weather as of late so I wouldn't rely on them being very accurate around your locale :o

Last night I dreamed I escaped capture GTA style and then tried to fake my way into Canada. BUT THEY WOULDN'T LET ME IN! I was stuck in a waiting room for the last half. Car all banged up and smoking. Very anti-climatic in lieu of the chase sequence.

Next time get either a Rob Ford or Justin Bieber mask.
They'll let you in then :P

First time I've ever heard of a DREAM suffering from budget cuts.

I often have dreams about robbing banks, THANKS PAYDAY!. But really, I've always had a fantasy of pulling of heists and I think I would be really good at it but my conscience couldn't take it. If I ever did something like that I'd end up bringing all the money back, crying, and begging for forgiveness then turning myself in to the police.
