House of Lies

About: house of lies (tv series 2012 ) - imdb

This is really funny & raunchy about a team of consultants who provide services to help make companies expand & grow & get out of trouble.  It is quite raunchy but some of the dialogue is priceless! T & I watched both seasons & hope the third one comes out next year. It is on ShowTime

We don't get showtime.  we are getting Netflix and HBO ... free for a time, then theoreotically we can continue with HBO for $5 a month on a promotional price.  I watched all of the House of Cards (Netflix) and got caught up with Newsroom on HBO. I watched a bit of Orange is the new Black, but wasn't enthralled enough to watch the whole series, primarily because i have a thing against prison drama.  Denise is chiggy about all these pay channels and, for the most part, refuses to watch ... apparently she prefers free entertainment and Netflix movies, which usually end up being B grade. 

Personally i don't like buying channels, i prefer to buy specific programs ... but, of course, if you buy programs individually (comcast on demand) you pay much more, about $7 per program ... so it is much cheaper if you buy the channel ... but then, unless you buy them all, you don't get to choose what you can watch.  Sucks, doesn't it !
Maybe i should do more reading and rely less on M$M to entertain me .  Then too having interesting dialogue with you might take up the slack, but you just want to arm wrestle, that boors me .  Maybe i should do more cooking ... oh, woopse, that just makes me fat .  Hey how about social media ... oh that's just goes around in circles blowing smoke into the athmosphere ... i can still do my small part for the greater consciousness.  So i guess that leaves zenning out and the whole accumulation of a private world of beauty and splendor which only i can share ... hmm, not my thing .   So, i guess, there will be more just  me being me .

We share the old fashioned way - we go to eachothers' houses & have dinner & watch a movie.

FYI, here is a clue maybe?
CBS: ... new study shows that Facebook may help people feel connected, but it doesn’t make them any happier.

In fact, according to the research, which was conducted by the University of Michigan, Facebook use actually predicts a decline in a person’s well-being.

The study used 82 young adults, all of whom had smartphones and Facebook accounts. The researchers then used experience-sampling to measure how the users think, felt and behaved by texting them at random times five days a week for two weeks. Each text contained a link to an online survey with five questions, including how the Facebook user felt at that moment, how worried he/she was and how lonely the user felt at that time.

The study concluded that the more the subjects used Facebook during one time period, the worse they felt.

Sounds more like you being you this morning is just:
(have another drink) We share the movies with some of our extended family who have big screens & get all the channels.


well, sure there is that element of "have another drink" in what i said ... quite intentionally .


How do you share with others on their TV what you have purchased on your network?  what is the mechanism that allows for that?

well, i think i have adopted a unique relationship to social media to which that study does not apply at all.   you see, i really do believe in a thing that could be called "collective consciousness".  Feeling that consciousness  and contributing to it is my motive for my social behavior.  whether it makes me feel good or bad is quite irrelivant ... if i honestly connect there with my interaction, then i feel good, if i do not that i feel bad.  real simple.
