But don't take my word for it. here is what Areyougeneric.com has to say:
Television sucks you in, evaporating your energy and diminishing your will to think. We sit limp and stare thoughtless in front of a box that never lets us disagree, interact, or talk back. We absorb the artificial, the fake -- corporate-sponsored News disguised as truth, the plastic sitcom disguised as vibrant life.
It is not a babysitter; it is not your best friend; it is not art; it is not exercise. Moderate your use. Turn it off to make time for loving, playing, painting, and reading. Trash your TV.

Although I've lived in Chico for nearly six years I still feel like I am getting a handle on her. I think one of the things I want to explore with this site is my interpretation of location and its affect on the individual. I know that if we have a conversation using the same words and intentions in Lima, Peru or Chico, California or the library or a back alley house of massage that location will have a sizable affect on the conversation. What other implications does/can location have?
I have nothing really to say, but still wanting to share, I write to you and daydream of hanging out on a sofa in a well-lit room with magazines on the coffee table. Casual. Caring. Tea? Split the last beer into glasses maybe.
