Turn on, Tune in, Drop out.

I avoid msm outlets as much as possible, mostly print media, but I also avoid television and radio. I use the Internet. I like radio, and I tune in to Radio Galalaz (Israel) and Radio Athens (Greece) for some diversion.

I don't know about this company [http://inside.radiotime.com/about] beyond what one finds at the link, that it comes out of Texas and is a private company. That they carry Israel radio says enough for me. Clicking on the link will take you to a selection of radio genres. I not only hope you like this and find it worthwhile, I hope it helps bankrupt the msm. http://radiotime.com/

I found as a tv tech, the more tv you watch, the more you agree with the tv.

And once you get that, you can see the propaganda in a clear light.

The truth shall set you free...

I think Timothy Leary is the one who is famous for coining the phrase, "Tune in, turn on, drop out." He meant it as a matter of deliberate action after a deliberate consideration. He meant it as a matter of will. A highly trained scientist in the Positivist Method turned all his intelligence and skill toward ensuing a generation and more would take up the Rousseauian "call of the wild" and become feral. Like the other catch phrase of the Sixties, "Kill you parents," it's a matter of turning away from Rationalism and toward a Romanticism of depravity under the aegis of moral purity. To see that clearly is to be free.

As a child of the Sixties I have to climb out of the hole we all dug, and from there, like Plato's slave in the cave, I have to find reality. It's far better than the life of illusion one finds in the culture of today, that of Left dhimmi fascism. So, I turned off the tv, turned on the desk lamp, and started reading up on what we assume to be the Truths as given to us by our hippie betters, the Philosopher Kings of Hip. Man, that hole, I couldn't dig it any more. No more corrosion, call me Leary of it all.

Streaming audio is, for me, one of the finest benefits of the internet. Live audio or podcasts from world sources of my choosing and at my schedule. I use it everyday and do not need the MSM in any format. I often refer to it as the SPM or Steam Powered Media, obsolete, PC, and not so much in to 'news' as into entertaining and placating the masses.

At a glance, I have four small bookcases, three shelves each, and three large ones, six shelves or more each. The super at my building came in for something a year or so ago and noticed I don't have a television. He promptly fixed that, which means I now have a beauty in the closet. That doesn't mean I'm not interested in television. I check often enough on ratings of various companies to be pleased with the declining viewerships they have, today, for example, showing the fewest viewers in recent record for most of the msm. Deserved failure, I think.

Also, aside from my glee at seeing the enemy fail so vividly, I like to see that our side, you, for example, probably pick up at least some of the former network viewers so they might find something of interest and use in the world.

But my main reason, like that of most people, is that my private life comes first, adn I like deciding how to shape it wherever I can, by listening to radio of my own choosing rather than such as the government mandated noise one is forced to endure if one listens to radio from Canada. Really, how many times does one care to hear "American Woman."? Surely not every day!

Long live the Internet, and more of it.

But how do you watch the Kardashians?

Dag said...

"Kardashians" seems to me to be something to do with Armenians. I will look it up later when I have some time. For those with an interest in Armenia and Armenians, there is a fine book titled, "The Burning Tigris." The river starts in Armenia. As well, for Americans interested in Armenian affairs at home, I subscribe to ANCA, the Armenian group who push as well as they can to ensure that someday we officially recognise in Congress the Armenian genocide.

Hi, CGW. Good to see you can leave comments here again. Sorry it took so long to get back. I don't know what I did wrong with the registration sign-in. Glad you're here.

My comment was a joke. It's one of the hottest pop culture TV sitcoms around - not for you, for sure.

A note ; any name ending in -ian is of Armenian ancestry.

One of my favourite pass-times is hiking to places lost in jungles or deserts or some such inaccessible place where I visit ruins of previous cultures. I went three days overland in the jungle once to see some mounds in a jungle, they being pyramids unexcavated as yet, and in their way pristine. I calls it culture. TV has its moments as well, I won't deny it. I recently watched the first season of Route 66 on dvd. Yes, it takes three or four days to watch an episode, but I enjoy it. I might someday encounter the show you refer to. Life is filled with mysteries.

One such is the Armenia Quarter of Jerusalem, a nice part of the Old City to be sure. That's about as close as I can come to Armenia so far. Time will tell.
