Are you as tired of advertising as I am?


Hi, I don't know about you but I have about had it up to "here" with so many TV advertisements. Even the talk shows say "we'll be back in a minute" and we wait and they say two words, then go to another advertisement. We have counted 7 or 8 advertisements between the show segments. I have been known to fall asleep and miss the whole rest of the show. I've taken showers, washed dishes, finished laundry while they keep trying to sell us stuff. WTF! I watch very little live TV anymore because I've had enough. Instead I tape shows and speed through the ads. If they put a ban on fast forwarding on our Tivo's or DVR's then TV will lose me forever. Who needs them?

I still have the internet, my online games, books and blogs. A nice quiet evening listening to music, singing, being with friends... anything but watching one commercial after another. Below is a good Video I found saying exactly how I feel.
