Nice post OP, S&F...
I have not owned a Bloody TV since March 2001 & I do not miss it...as for me it
would just be a mindless distraction if not watching the Science, History Channel & etc...
I would rather be on a computer so I am actually reading, researching, & keeping
in touch with me friends.
Here's a definite TV influence that I haven't seen mentioned yet...MTV
I'm not talking about the lame shows....I could be wrong but when
Madonna came into the scene, especially on MTV, she really
had an influence on teenagers clothing & other things as well. After that
the rest of the musicians also had a great influence, gangsta wear,
Puff Daddy, isn't this the time the NBA players started wearing suits?
I remember something in the news in regards to the players having to
wear suits & look respectable because so many kids look up to them....
So there is definite power on the waves....
I have always hated that MTV stopped showing ONLY music videos.
