[09:11] <FireFly_9> But why would the clothes be hanging out the window?
[09:12] <C'est_la_V> Fiore needed to get out fast
[09:12] <FireFly_9> Ahh.
[09:12] * --=[ SpeedRcrX ]=-- saw the first 7 episodes of Paranoia Agent last night
[09:12] <FireFly_9> How was it?
[09:12] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> My one line review: What. The. f[BLEEP]k.
[09:13] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> It started out perfect blue, then switched to Eva headtripness, now it's in Lain Territory
[09:14] * C'est_la_V still has to watch ringu 2, X-chan is being an ass about it
[09:14] <FireFly_9> How so?
[09:14] <C'est_la_V> He can't stand the pace of Japanese horror films says they're too slow
[09:14] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Man neither can I, I need s[BLEEP]t to go by fast, with lots of pulse-pounding action
[09:15] <C'est_la_V> Moh, don't you know that if you start things out slow, your pulse will start to pound faster soon enough ^_~
[09:15] * FireFly_9 groans
[09:15] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> I only accept that kind of talk from Michiru :P
[09:16] <C'est_la_V> lol
[09:16] <FireFly_9> As for my upcoming movie list, I have "Supersize Me" still waiting in the wings.
[09:16] <C'est_la_V> Hey I bought that for you before you left...
[09:16] <C'est_la_V> ^I left, gomen
[09:17] <FireFly_9> Yes, you did... I've been busy at the library
[09:17] <C'est_la_V> We'll watch it together then
[09:17] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Man I never want to see that s[BLEEP]t, I need to be able to eat my junk food in peace
[09:17] <FireFly_9> Ignorance is not bliss, Haruka-poppa
[09:18] <C'est_la_V> Oh yeah, but what if you knew there were big ugly roaches in the wall? You couldn't sleep then!
[09:18] <FireFly_9> Given the foul cesspit that is Haruka-poppa's room, I would nto be surprised if there ARE big ugly roaches in the wall :P
[09:19] <C'est_la_V> O_O
[09:19] <FireFly_9> Oh, like you ever do.
[09:19] <C'est_la_V> Don't get bitter with me, kohei!
[09:20] <FireFly_9> Who's bitter?!
[09:20] <C'est_la_V> YOU
[09:20] <FireFly_9> Whyever would I be bitter?!
[09:20] <C'est_la_V> Hotaru-chan is bitter because Hotaru-chan has no love life!
[09:22] <FireFly_9> What does it matter if I have a love life or not!? Not everyone needs someone else to be complete, you know!
[09:22] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> umm
[09:22] <C'est_la_V> I don't NEED anyone to be complete thanks
[09:23] <FireFly_9> God, don't forget I know all the stories about you!
[09:23] <C'est_la_V> Artemis needs to shut up
[09:23] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> guys yo listen
[09:24] <FireFly_9> Who said anything about *Artemis*? The tales of "Boy Chaser Aino" are well known around Azabu-Juuban!

[09:30] <C'est_la_V> So... no TV at all??
[09:31] <FireFly_9> Don't you have TV in the TARDIS?
[09:31] <C'est_la_V> I broke something to do with it; we use the house cable thing
[09:31] <FireFly_9> Then no TV for you
[09:31] * C'est_la_V screams like the alien in that painitng that was stolen and destroyed the other day
[09:32] <FireFly_9> Edvard Munch's "the scream?"
[09:32] <C'est_la_V> That was a damn good movie!!

[09:32] <// J_Daito //> I'm off to court now
[09:33] <C'est_la_V> Jedite-san!!
[09:33] <// J_Daito //> -san?
[09:33] <C'est_la_V> Jedite-san you sold your soul to a law firm for quick money!! How much money do you make??
[09:33] <// J_Daito //> hahaha as if they'd pay me.
[09:34] <// J_Daito //> I work for the glory of being able to put nonsense on my resume for the NEXT stepping stone
[09:34] <// J_Daito //> your overly ppolite greasing of the wheel indicates that you want to borrow money
[09:34] <C'est_la_V> The house cable is disconnected and no one has cash
[09:35] <// J_Daito //> hahahahahah suffer in torment
[09:35] * // J_Daito // quit watching TV when the A-Team went off the air
[09:35] <C'est_la_V> Moh, what will I do without TV?
[09:36] <// J_Daito //> Oh please, just make out with your husband like you always do
[09:36] <FireFly_9> Arrgh, then I will never get any sleep ><
[09:36] <C'est_la_V> Moh~ I don't do that all the time you know stop exaggerating!!
[09:36] <C'est_la_V> I'm serious what will I do!?
[09:37] <FireFly_9> Here's a hint-- GO OUTSIDE There's a whole world out there.
[09:37] <// J_Daito //> Says she who locks herself in her room all day reading dusty old books.
[09:37] <FireFly_9> Don't deflate my one moment of perfect glory, Jedite.
[09:38] *** // J_Daito // [] has quit IRC (hahaha that's what I *do*, Goth no Senshi)
[09:38] <FireFly_9> ><
[09:38] <C'est_la_V> This isn't funny...
[09:38] <FireFly_9> In all seriousness, sempai, Cable Television is not a required staple of life.
[09:38] <C'est_la_V> I know, but I got so used to it..
[09:40] * FireFly_9 sighs
[09:40] <FireFly_9> In "The Velvet Alley," Rod Serling wrote of a young advertising writer who becomes a success at writing television. At one point, the character says (paraphrased from memory): "Here's the TV they pay you lots of money for what you do...then, slowly, your standard of living rises until you *need* that constant flow to stay at that level. Then...they threaten to take it away from you if you don't behave. And THAT'S when they've got you.
[09:40] <C'est_la_V> I don't follow
[09:41] <FireFly_9> You've trained yourself to think of it as an indispensable utility somewhat akin to food and water.
[09:41] <FireFly_9> Time to let that dangerous, foolish notion go.
[09:41] <C'est_la_V> :<
[09:42] * C'est_la_V used to fill her time just having it on in the background listening to it while watching X-chan do art or whatever, it was relaxing in a way.
[09:43] <FireFly_9> Radio can fulfill the same purpose, I should think.
[09:43] <C'est_la_V> Moh~
[09:43] *** C'est_la_V [] has quit IRC (I'm not happy...)
[09:43] <FireFly_9> It's JUST TELEVISION people.
[09:44] <FireFly_9> That's the problem, actually. That is exactly the problem.
[09:44] *** GERMATOID [] has quit IRC (I MISS MY FRIEND ALREADY :<)
[09:44] <FireFly_9> Good grief.
[09:45] * FireFly_9 is away: Well it's not like my circumstances have changed.

Sad, the levels we've come to depend on technology.
*wants to check out the Dr. Who series now... Is curious*
I think people need to get back to nature a bit... (I sound like a hippy [Sinfield] Not that there's anything wrong with that!

Moonstar • 06/09/05 02:23am

I've never watched TV unless it was like....Anime (Paranoia Agent is SO AWESOME!) or the News. That's. It.

Indigo [e-mail] • 06/06/05 05:51pm

I only really watch TV at night and before school in the mornings, but that's still a fair bit. I feel for Haruka, although we do have another reason Michiru's a bitch XD

Now, if the Internet went... *shudders*

Sailor Mewtwo [e-mail] • 06/06/05 01:44pm

I don't actually sit down and watch TV unless I'm at my parents' house, then I scold myself for doing so. It helps that the tuner on my TV is broken and stuck on a single channel, so it is only useful for playing on console systems. I pretty much just torrent anything I watch regularly... I'm noticing a pattern.

Lister of Smeg [e-mail] • 06/06/05 12:26pm

I think it's good not to have TV. I don't have any cable for like 4 years now, yet the shows I managed to get on the free acess channels have to be filled up with reality crap that I wish someone had shot a bullet to the head of the person who presented these moronic ideas in the first place. We really need in our TV lives like 6 seasons of Survivor, 4 Law & Order theme shows, and another season of that show that features Paris Hilton. Geeh.

Torrents of your fave shows are much better, and plus-side is NO COMMERICIALS.

YingGirl [e-mail] • 06/06/05 11:12am

No TV and no beer make Homer something something.

Jack Flagg • 06/06/05 10:57am

You know I can't remember the last time I sat down and watched TV (except for Doctor Who, and that CAN be acquired elsewhere anyway). So when you all get addicted I'll be one of the lucky few who keeps their sanity. XD
