Right now, I’m watching the Food Channel’s “Chopped’ show while listening to Southern Culture On The Skids on earphones. I figure, if I can’t smell what they’re cooking, I don’t wanna hear what they’re saying. It’s not easy describing what this is like, watching TV, but with a totally different sound track. Sure gives cause to a lot of unintended scenarios to evolve; especially if you’re a bit spaced-out. I wonder if I’m the only one who does that (I doubt it).
Sometimes, the only way I can tolerate the ‘media’ is with the sound turned off and my eyes shut. [Don’t wanna just turn the TV off – I might miss something]. Maybe the thing of it is: the fear of missing out on something really important. And who wants to miss-out on anything important? So, although I’m trying to keep away from as much ‘media’ as I can, I always keep one eye open to it…ust to stay grounded. Don’t wanna miss-out.
