Is Television Dead?
Let's get something straight right away: the medium of "television," the means of telling stories and providing entertainment by way of pictures and sound, is not dead...never will be dead, and will in fact outlive us all. But the method in which we consume it...well now that is a different story.
I've had a dream, although it is a far-fetched one, to work at NBC one day. Specifically, at 30 Rockefeller in Manhattan. Earlier this year I typed up some sub plans in the basement of the building while traveling in New York, but that doesn't mean I am going to cross this goal off the bucket list just let.
However, the longer it takes me to accomplish this goal, the more I am becoming convinced that NBC as we know it will not be a thing in about 15-20 years...especially after reading this article from Advertising Age magazine:
Read the article and then come back here and tell me what you think. Is NBC (along with CBS, ABC and FOX) dead as we know them? Or is Ms. Palmer blowing things out of proportion?
So It's Been a Year
What happens in a year's time. Well a whole hell of a lot actually. This time last year, April 8, 2016, was the last time I updated this blog. And I am not even going to begin the type out the laundry list of things that have happened since then. Some of it has been good. Some has been bad. Some have been very public changes (i.e. elections), others have been more private (i.e. none of your damn business).
Either way, I'm thinking I'm back...least for a little bit. I spent a lot of last year writing for some publications (click here to read), but as of right now I think I am needing a break. Plus as we approach summer I'm going to have some cool things to share with everyone...so it is time. Let's fire back up the blog machine and see where it takes us.
Right now this is as far as it is taking us. You can't expect me to cannonball back into the pool now can you?
