View Full Version : TV, Games, Sports & Reality

On a day to day basis...which do you prefer?
It's tough to separate the different aspects of reality; what readily completes your physical being, has nothing do do with your mental. Food, shelter and most important, survival...has become more of a nuisance. Work, is about earning $$$. $$$ is about food and shelter.
When you "let go" and relax, what is most important? TV, Games, Sports or Reality?
I'll start, a combination of all.

I don't get this.
Whichever is available at the moment?

What one am I meant to answer if I don't want to look like some sort of selfish, self-centred idiot? I second Fatal, I don't get it.
All I know is this:
TV sucks most of the time.
I rarely play games these days, if at all.
Sports are something I've never liked much.
Life is mostly good, but has a few annoyances which grate on my nerves when they come around.

I'm not quite sure what the exact question is.. maybe I'm reading it wrong. Also why did you triple post? You can edit your original post if you decide to add something. So I merged them.
On a day to day basis I prefer to wake up alive. It would be nice to wake up and not have to face any dumb shit. Life is good but could be so much better. Facing some of the challenges is hard. Luckily I don't have any medical problems... not yet anyhow. There are things that I would change but thats not possible right now.
...about the relax thing. I prefer a combination. I like variety in most all things. If I'm doing the same thing over and over it gets very boring. I don't always drink the same beer or listen to the same music.... mixing it up is more interesting.
I'm not into sports. I like to watch hockey (very rare) and I used to like biking but I no longer have a bike. :(
TV sucks. Commericials are annoying as hell.

I sorry about the triple post....it was my intention, kind of a break in between my posts.
I guess I was philosophical and I didn't realize it...What I was trying to say, is what does the average life really consist of? Personally, I work...and spend free time during the week, just taking it easy, and listening/playing music. Weekends are party time.
There are a lot of things I'd change *cough*(politics), about the world we live in, but I'm finding out, the best way to do this, is leading by example...and not judging. Television....is crap....except for my occasional viewing of Comedy Central. Gotta love sarcasm.

Television has been pretty good over the past few years, actually.
Notwithstanding the Writer's Guild strike. More power to them, they need to prevail vs. the greedy producers.
Hopefully that can be resolved sooner rather than later.
If you have Showtime (assuming you can get it wherever in the world you may live), I *highly* recommend Dexter. It's the best show on tv, by far.
Go here and get caught up! (http://www.sho.com/site/dexter/home.do)
The season finale is on tonight, and my girlfriend and I are really looking forward to it!
Moving this to the newly-combined "Movies & Music" section...

I've been bored with my few hours after work, so I've been watching Gung Fu movies for inspiration.
I just downloaded Akira Kurosawa's: Dreams, a movie available on xbox live. It's just that, a movie about dreams....no narration. It's up to you to sort it out.
For sports, I'm in a transition....of moving from one location to another. After the move, I may take up boxing. Though, I'd rather practice Gung Fu again. I used to practice under Zhen Kang Sun, spent some time in China.....and now I'm down an alternate path...it's a long story for anothe..........
Games, I can't keep up with the online stuff, so I use crappy spare time, playing Xbox Live Arcade games, just getting high scores in 1 sitting(I can still hold my own in 1st person's, but accumulative high scores...come on, I don't have all 168 hours in the week.
