Amazon.com: Books: Everything Bad Is Good for You: How Today’s Popular Culture Is Actually Making Us Smarter
so this has been part of the world o’blog, but i had some server issues, as my 4 readers know. but if this were true, i’d be in heaven. well not heaven, but a happier place or something. if only watching tv made me smarter, rather than, you know, making people have the attention span of a gnat. or making it now almost physically impossible for me to only have one thing to focus on (yes, i’m media king, it’s not at all uncommon for me to have the tv on, a movie on another screen, while music is playing as i read things on my computer. or a movie, the ps2, music, and movie on the computer. once i had a setup where i had a tv on, ps2 on another screen, music via portable music player, and a dvd – audio only playing through the stereo).
btw, i will me migrating to a server and my “own” website relatively soon. i should send out actual snail mail invites with the new addy to my readers, as it would cost me less than $5 total for all of that! haha.
