When you only have a few tv shows that you like to watch each week, it does not take long for the networks to run out of episodes now that the writers have been on strike for a few weeks. This has not kept me from staying busy though. Here is what I've been up to:
I have been doing a lot of reading. Both books and magazines. Fast Company and Reason are 2 magazines I cannot get enough of. Along with my regular selection of GQ, Wired, Men's Health, Rolling Stone, and ESPN magazine. As for books, (not ministry related) I just finished a Clive Cussler novel and also found a great book at the library called "The dangerous book for boys." I loved it! This is the first book I am going to buy my son. A perfect father/son book.
I hardly ever get around to playing my Playstation 2, but I have had some extra time the past couple of weeks. NCAA football and Tiger Woods PGA Tour are my addictions at the moment.
Finally, I have been spending time watching a couple of shows over at Revision3. What a great idea to have an Internet TV station where viewers can watch any episode, anytime they want. This is the future. Tekzilla (Tech show) and Web Drifter (Comedy) are the 2 shows I have been watching. I love the idea of free TV coming into my iTunes when released and me watching whenever is convenient.
So, all of this has made me not miss the shows I watch much at all. I wonder if this strike will send a message to the studios, networks, and writers that TV is not nearly as important to people in this age as it was even just a few years ago? We have options, many of them. I say strike on!
