Out of the Blue

Welp, the gremlins managed to get in and strike overnight here at the Blue Tower. When I awoke this morning I recalled there was an early NFL game in London. So I popped on the TV to see what was up while I brewed some coffee. Minutes later I looked up to see that the screen was displaying a psychedelic pattern that would have been a perfect background for a Jimi Hendrix concert. There's not a lot to check in a situation like this. I played around with the inputs and tried the old power cycle hoohah, but it seems the TV has lost the ability to translate electrical impulses into coherent images, which is basically its only job. And on a football Sunday, no less! Not to mention the season premier of Succession tonight. I'll play around with the TV a bit more to see if there's some sort of "fix picture" function I'm missing, but I'm pretty sure it's just destined for the landfill and will need to be replaced.

News avoidance during the COVID-19 pandemic is associated with better mental well-being

Or you could copy my mother and just plug into Fox News 24/7 and grow increasingly deranged to the point where you don't care about anything because Jesus is apparently returning soon to call home only Fox News viewers. I don't even speak to my own mom anymore because every time she calls it's just non-stop regurgitation, and you can literally hear Fox News on in the background no matter what time of day she calls.

I consider myself a somewhat political person and I only spend about an hour on news stuff a day, none of it on TV. It's just nightmarish to consider the idea of watching more.
