Hilarious thing happened last night when my 13 year old niece found a beeper in my shed.
"Whats this"?? she asked
I told her that was a pager and when someone called this number, it would beep and show me the phone number of who is calling. I would then go to a payphone and call them back.
"Whats a payphone"??
The realization of generation gap hit me and I was giggling all night. She could not believe that there were booths that had phones all over the city at one time.
Does it surprise me that viewing habits have changed? Not in the least.

I never understood the appeal of reality shows. The only explanation I can think of for such appeal, would be the "trainwreck" value.

Back in the day whenever I came across the show COPS while channel surfing, it seemed like every episode was edited together to maximize the "trainwreck" value.


In regard to hollywood movies, these days it seems like every second prime time tv show is produced like a short fast paced 40 minute hollywood movie, with similar production styles. At times I wonder whether this has been making many movies "superfluous", when one can just watch the same sort of thing every week on tv.
