Day 60

Well, we are pretty much into our third month with the no TV experiment and it's still going pretty good. We have been taking in a heavy dose of films lately, including some oldies (Breakfast at Tiffanys, Uncle Buck) and some relatively new movies (The Hurricane, Mr. 3000). I continue to do daily research on any upcoming web-based tv shows or broadcasting companies that will be utilizing the web. Every week iTunes has some freebies. This is where we were introduced to a new show called Psych. Very cool show about a young guy who was raised by his dad to memorize everything he can in a short period of time. So he basically has a photographic memory. The show is about his meandering with the local police department where he poses as a psychic. He solves crimes ala Monk, which makes for very entertaining viewing. If you haven't seen this show yet, get the free pilot download here.
Football - I'll be honest, I don't have a plan for the upcoming football season. All of my friends keep reminding me of this by asking "dude, what you gonna do come football season?" I don't know. The NFL is very stingy when it comes to broadcast (no web at all). As far as the NCAA goes I'm not sure if they have a web based situation yet. If they were smart they move in that direction. Could you imagine picking the school of your choice, season packaged for like $50. I'd totally buy a University of Miami package. Anyway, if you hear anything you know I'm all ears!
