CURRENT EVENTS

Recent Archaeological Find

I have no idea why we aren’t hearing more about this recent extraordinary archaeological find, so I thought I should at least let the readers of this blog know about this discovery. (Thanks Carmen for bringing this to my attention).

BOOK OF THE WEEK

MOVIE, PLAY OR TV SHOW OF THE WEEK

If you aren’t paying for the product, you are the product.

Did I get your attention? I really didn’t enjoy watching this film. But like Uncle Tony used to say, “It’s like a lot of medicine, it may not taste good; but it is good for you.

I don’t buy into this whole The Social Dilemma thing, but the film does present things for one to consider. 

The Social Dilemma

  1. I agree with the gist of The Social Dilemma. The movie, the interview of one of the film’s creators on a podcast I heard, and especially a book called Digital Minimalism by Cal Newport have all helped me make up my mind. Also, I know that I THINK I spend, say 30 minutes on a platform, and then I look at the clock, and 90 minutes have gone by. It’s a “just one more click” kind of thing.

    • Thank you for comment Priscilla. I find the whole social media thing very additive. I’m trying to go on a social media diet, but I need to work harder at it. So far, it seems as bad as trying to lose weight, if not worse.

  2. I love the archeological find!
    And the weeks joke— hilarious.
    Great short film! True.
    Social Media— I agree… I try to stay away from it. It is disturbing how the ‘bots’ seem to know everything about us. AND I do think we (people) are so swayed by what we see in the ‘box’ regardless of whether or not it is actually real.

    • I used to watch them when I was young and found those of that time period very scary. I saw them I think late Friday or Saturday evening on a show called “Shock Theater”. As always, thank you for commenting and glad you are still enjoying the weekly post.
