HDTV....the awful truth.

All things outside of Burning Man.

HDTV....the awful truth.

it stands for Hypnotic Direct Transfer Vehicle.


its how thoughts, ideas and emotions can be beamed straight into our sub-conscious, without the beneficial filters of reason, or logic.


we can now experience them, via our minds eye and the lovely super delicious alpha and beta waves generated by said devices.

ever wonder why you are "Buzzing" after an extended video bender, or possibly watching a double header of movies...

you've been receiving a mental massage, similar to your own brain waves...

well, HDTV is even BETTER at making you a slave to the tube...it's designed to do so.

so just like any other drug, this one should have at least, a warning label, like for Ambien and Lunestra...."warning, may cause sleep crime" or something along those lines.

Warning...this device will steal the very essence of your life....your valuble time, and replace it with false memories and pseudo-spirituality"

i'm just sayin'....

Amen Bro. Same shit, packaged in a more expensive wrapper. Heroin of the mind. Corporate America's best psyops strategy of the century.

it is much more fun to shoot them.


i used to pick up sets by the side of the road, and whenever cheney would piss me off on Sunday Morning Meet the Press, etc, etc, i would throw a brick at him...

it's very cathartic, and inexpensive.

I don't post things because I believe that they are the absolute truth. I post them because I believe that they should be considered.

yeah, yeah, yeah...

how many people would it take to keep an eye on the millions of poor and/or elderly city people who get converter boxes? how much are they paid? how does the government keep them quiet? next thing you'll tell me is that americans don't want those jobs, so they hire illegal aliens ... they'd be easier to keep quiet, too, especially those who don't speak english.

if this is true, it must also be true that those cable/dish boxes have cameras. and digital tvs, as well! not to mention computers and telephones and those automatic toilet flushers at the airport and ...

This.

San Francisco's Mission district has a new free television station. Pirate Cat Radio proprietor, Monkey, as he calls himself, got his hands on some tv gear and is broadcasting on the analog channel 13. Right now Pirate Cat TV can only be seen a few blocks from its Mission transmitter but Monkey plans on moving the antenna to a new location in the near future.

"If you haven't heard about it yet then the FCC isn't doing their job of informing you that a lot of tv stations are switching from the analog broadcasts to the hd broadcasts and you'll have to buy a new converter box. So instead of buying a new converter box what you can do is keep your tv set that you have now, put rabbit ears on it , and get the all new Pirate Cat Tv," says Monkey.

Monkey says programming will run the gamut from local news type shows to the work of local filmmakers.

So batten down the hatches, raise the Jolly Roger, and put your parrot to bed. The Pirates are over the airwaves. Let's just hope Monkey can find a crowsnest high enough to mount his transmitter so we can all watch Pirate Cat TV.

What past time are you shooting for, how much does it pay, and how are you getting back there? I suppose I should also ask what you want to do while back there. (Shoot a dinosaur? See what happened with the Red Sea? Stand guard outside a certain box in a certain theater while the President and his wife take in a play? Other?)

Is that pirate station still around? I wouldn't be surprised if the FCC shut 'em down shortly after the article came out.
