I am very mysterious. I don't even know who I really am. If I told me I'd have to kill myself! Actually, I am a former musician in the U.S. as well as a former CEI agent. If you don't know what that is, I can't tell you. Again, I'd have to kill myself. I can tell you this... "I've been everywhere man"... well, not really but, I did get around a little.
I can also tell you this... I'm OLD. We got our first tv when I was 3 and I've never looked back. 2 channels, b&w, blurry, snowy, static. We've come a long way baby. Try standing on one foot holding a piece of tin foil attached to antenna wire as high as you can out the top of a window with heavy snow falling in -20°F. and 45 mph winds for almost half an hour so your family can watch Groucho Marx on "You Bet Your Life". I gotta tell ya', that's when men were men and the sheep ran scared.
But enough about me, let's talk about me. I am retired now so I can devote the time it deserves to watching everything ever transmitted over the airwaves. TVmaze is fantastic for keeping track of what I've seen and what I want to see. Thank you to all the technical geniuses that keep things like this going. With the availability of torrents, streams, s/w like Kodi and Exodus, internet channels, etc. it's incredible the variety of programming you can find. It's been terrific to "discover" old series I missed while working during the pre-VCR/DVR days. Especially enjoyable are the foreign offerings from the Brits, Scots, Danes, Swedes, Aussies, Canucks and a whole lot more. I applaud cop shows that can solve a crime without killing and dismembering half the cast (well, "The Tunnel" and "The Bridge" were still excellent.) and blowing up several vehicles and a couple of buildings. It is sad though to see we aren't the only country with prejudices and discrimination. It regrettably seems to be getting worse by the day across the planet. For shame!
It's especially great to be able to get all this content these days rather than watching the abysmal behavior of purportedly "civilized" people in the news and on "reality" shows. It's hard to imagine that humanity may have reached it's peak amidst the generations spawned in the wake of two World Wars. I put a lot of hope in the youth of today but, alas, with the proliferation of atrocious, grievous hate-mongers as role models they will need extraordinary strength and courage to even attempt to right the ever increasing wrongs enveloping the world's societies. My thoughts and prayers are with future generations. Okay, I'm cautiously pessimistic... so sue me! Hey, it's the 'merican way.
I know, not a bio. Mostly an op/ed piece. I am a Patriots fan and NO! Deflategate was NOT real! FUNFL! Yes, the WhoDats got robbed! (2019)
If I think of anything interesting to add (doubtful) or feel a rant coming on I'll come back and embellish a little.
