Help Wanted: TO SELL FREEDOM

Note from Employer

We are looking for spirited INDIVIDUALS to help save us from ourselves.  Our company has been running up uncontrollable debt and deficits, we've promised our employees more than we could possibly afford, we punish our successful employees to maintain the employees that just need a little more training, and we are quickly losing any viability as a company.

My First Gun Show

Feb 2, 2013 5:56 AM PT

Today, I'm headed to my very first (shocking, I know. Why? Cuz I'm black?) gun show. With all the emotion-based Tomfoolery going on in Washington D.C. about banning long clips and scary looking guns, today sure promises to be a doozy. 

I'm going to try to conduct interviews with the average gun-loving Floridian. This shouldn't be too difficult because the Sunshine State (a.k.a., the Gunshine State) recently became the first state in America to issue 1 million conceal carry permits. (A liberal's head just exploded).

Binge-Viewing Recommendation: Castle

Feb 1, 2013 12:51 PM PT

In response to Binge-viewing:

When this show came on in 2009 something about it didn't appeal to me. But having watched about two dozen episodes I'm hooked.

I think it's a bad way to watch something.  I binge-viewed Always Sunny in Philadelphia after I discovered it, and by Season 4 I was barely watching, I was just playing them, to get through them.  Just to complete the set and check the box.

Now whenever I want to see one I didn't see, I play one from seasons 4 and 5, because I really didn't watch them.  And yet I saw enough of them that a new viewing is spoiled.

Netflix marathons

Feb 1, 2013 12:06 PM PT

In response to Binge-viewing:

I wrote about Netflix binge viewing a while ago, Elizabeth, and as I recall the king of binge-viewing shows at the time was "Breaking Bad."  I also found the first few seasons of "24" were even better when viewed that way, especially since that show was supposed to be unfolding in real time.  Of course, viewing it in real-time also enhances some of its lovable absurdities, such as Jack Bauer's ability to move rapidly across highly congested urban areas, which rivals that of Santa Claus.

Binge-viewing

I don't watch live TV very often and apparently, I'm not the only one

Binge-viewing, empowered by DVD box sets and Netflix subscriptions, has become such a popular way for Americans to watch TV that it is beginning to influence the ways the stories are told — particularly one-hour dramas — and how they are distributed.
