Stepping Down From The Modern World [Sep. 15th, 2013|09:23 am]
Tony Grist
We got rid of our TV. We advertised it on Freecycle and it was gone the same evening. A pleasant young couple from a few streets away walked over and took it. The young man carried it off in his arms.

Will we replace it? Maybe, but not yet.

And why did we do it?  Because silence is golden. Because we'd both rather read books. Because living at my mother's I'm sick of having the hairy bikers roaring at me from the corner of the room, because the BBC pays its managers way too much...

I went for many years without television... about 10, I think. My Partner, however, enjoys it very much, and because of her I have been introduced to some things that I, now, also enjoy. But when she isn't around, I hardly ever watch it, if at all. Plus, we always watch it on our computers. I don't own an actual TV.

Therefore, it is never "just on". Shows have to intentionally sought after. It is not a source of background noise. That is something that drives me, personally, up a tree (just having the tv on with no one actually watching it).

There are many things I've enjoyed on TV down the years but I guess I just want a break.
