Default TV has become a spam :(

If you want media you have to turn to the internet now. I dont (firefox dont like me) know about other people but TV has become a spammed web site. Its like one site that has a few good things but other then that its internet spam. Really! Everything a .com in really cheap ass ads that I can do better in Mario Paint and a VCR. On TV. I think its just fucked up how its evolved over the years.

Internet killed the video star. Good idea for a parody. I'll have to write Weird Al and let him know.

But the salient question is, if the internet killed TV, what killed ZMD? :P

Anyway, I appreciate your thoughts on the demise of Television. I stopped watching quite a long time ago now, so I feel validated by your observation. NetFlix FTW!

I think classic game rom hacking was pretty much a fad. An insanely popular fad among people experiencing the internet for the first time.

I thought the whole point of TV was the whole point of other things -- to get better at addicting a specific demographic. This, done in the very "John Mayer" algorithm, causes it to be annoying to anyone outside of the demographic.

It's simply the marketing machine turned up. Of course it's annoying, you're the outlier.

Well said. Love that John Mayer algorithm reference. That's some crappy crap of music there that Bono can listen to for relaxation.

BTW, speaking of stuff that sucks, and TV thinking it's awesome, and music performance artists - I heard on the radio that the Super Bowl is looking to a new business model for their half-time entertainment, where the artist actually pays $ for the privilege of the spot.

I think, keeping consistent with their low-information-crowd of an audience, they should just strap guitars on the Duck Dynasty gang and send 'em out on stage. Whoo hoo! What a blast.

I was a software engineer at Klout, (we basically ranked how popular people were on the "internet") The one thing that our machine learning figured out --- the average "internet" was a 14 year old girl. Of course Justin Bieber was the most popular, if you're looking for social media demographics. So then we had to tune everything to basically weight against 14 girlism. Fun times.
