Moving on

I used to watch a lot of kids shows, but then as I got older I realized that stuff is not for my age anymore. No self respecting woman would ever go near a man that watches shows aimed for Preschoolers. One day I just finally let go of all that kiddie stuff and watch more adult programs like documentaries and rock concerts and sometimes the news. Although I must admit no news is good news, as cliche as it sounds.

My TV broke and needed replacing

May 1, 2023 at 9:17pm

I thought I needed a break from TV so thought I'd take a year off before getting another one. Somehow a year turned into twenty years and when the grand children visited I bought a new tv. It was only used once or twice and then I pulled the plug on it. I prefer just to use my laptop computer to selectively dial in the occasional film, documentary or music program. In particular I can't stand the TV news. All the newscasters have the same annoying vocal cadence and octave. And the mainstream media is generally: "No ideas and the ability to express them. That's a journalist." - Karl Kraus. .... Georgia Straight journalists excepted :-)

I know a woman that is probably old enough to be your mother or at least your older sister. She respects herself and is also respectful towards others. She has a huge collection of Cabbage Patch dolls, probably everyone that was ever made. She an entire room displayed of them. I don't believe she'd agree with your notions of what a "self respecting" woman would be drawn towards or repulsed by. In fact I think she'd be rather amused by a guy with a box of old Transformers and a collection of Bugs Bunny cartoons.

I find cartoons annoying. It's the voices of the characters they are so high pitched and whiny. I suppose it attracts kids at that age to watch them. But think about this have you ever wondered why your kids whine and talk like infants?
Perhaps the cartoons are modeling your child's behavior.
Also think about the cartoon 'Caillou' damn that kid was whiny !
Like nails on a chalkboard :)

You’ve certainly hit the nail on the head. Yikes! No wonder kids scream like a bunch of deranged lunatics in an asylum.
