Television and the Written Word

The nature of television and the nature of the written word are completely different. I watch television when I want a break from thinking, because thinking and concentrating on a television are irreconcilable. And then when I get bored with that, I read (and really want to write, as discussed in “The nature of writing is that […]

Television and concentration.

Television makes concentration impossible. It always has for me…………………………………………….. Excerpts from “Breaking News: story 2 of the Apocalyptic series”. Television. News. A Philosopher’s Mind. Highly Sensitive Mind. My nature. Insightful. Things that I have for sale on Kindle. Where you can financially support me if you so desire.

I have discovered the philosophical root of television “news”

I just imagined this scenario and I died a little bit on the inside (parenthesis are not part of the fictitious conversation. They are my real thoughts about the fictitious conversation): Me: “I don’t watch the news.” Someone else: “Why not?” Me: “Because I can’t process it. It doesn’t give me enough time to think about what […]

Oh, Bomani…

I used to watch ESPN religiously. “Around the Horn” was one of the shows I watched every day. Woody Paige was always my favorite. But I’ve stopped paying for television. I’ve stopped watching sports. I spend most of my free time on the internet now. But I was scrolling through my Facebook feed and realized […]

Personal Examination of Experimental Repetition

I once had a blog. I guess it was near 10 year ago, now. Would’ve made me 15, 16 years old. Yikes. Glad it’s not still around (although a part of me wishes I could still see what I wrote, and only me). But I’ve always been a scatterbrained little boy, for a multitude of reasons. […]

Review of George Orwell’s “1984”

This is one of those books that is hard to do justice with a review. The copy that I read, borrowed from my best friend, has a preface by Walter Cronkite written in 1983, and an afterword by Eric Fromm in 1961. I’ll share a little bit of each of these before I write my […]

Saturation vs. Stimulation (In Movies, Particularly)

When I ignore what I’m told, and “nerd out”, I’m much happier, and my work is better. I hope I can retain this confidence to “choose my words carefully”, and be “overly descriptive”, because it actually makes me happy. With that being said, here’s the topic that I wish to discuss using said hope. I […]

Accepting Evil

I was introduced to the concept of “evil” at a very young age. It was introduced to me through religious conservatism, as well as through television news. Both were saturated with incessant talk of evil things that people were doing all around the world. When my religion taught me that I was evil, when I […]

Public Service Announcement

Here is my response to the blog post below (I have a sneaking suspicion that the author of this post will delete my response. As someone who has done this myself, I think I am justified in this belief. The response is as follows). “They are mere shells of life eaten out by years of […]

Local Man Not Dissuaded By Vomit – The Garlic Journal

BENTONVILLE, AR – Yesterday, at 12:01 PM, 27-year-old Brad Stephenson told reporters that he still planned on ordering a sundae later that evening as he was seen vomiting outside the local McDonald’s. A television crew from station WEFT reported that they approached the young man after seeing him knelt over the railing in front of […]
