This is the little note I wrote myself when I came up with a four page post idea “the personal nature of a PC leads people to being selfish dicks as they
only want to watch short clips of things they have found and want to
show off and refuse to take suggestions and try watching something
someone else suggests…with television they are used to others being around and thus will take suggestions for programing and DVDs”

I will now try to salvage what remains in my skull of the post.

Your PC. It is yours. You don’t like to let others touch it. You prefer to be alone with it when you use it. You probably keep it in your bedroom. Seeing a pattern?

You control it. You may even love it. It always finds and shows you what you want. When it comes to visual and audio stimulation of your carnal desires you would be hard pressed to find such an experienced partner as your PC. You have bookmarked some of the performances you want it to repeat and may have saved videos of the best nights it has given you.

It also turns you into an idiot. By hiding and keeping secret the things that aren’t as cool when someone else is around. Those stupid brainless little videos you can’t go a day without. Not porn. Truly brainless random WorkTimeFun stuff that if you were to try and apply reason to would make absolutely no sense at all.

Your brain saves up so many of these really pointless videos as things to show someone someday. So, you have a friend over. Things are getting boring. The day/evening is slowing down. Why not show them that video that you obsess over. NOT THE PORN ONE! The other stupid and pointless one.

They immediately remember that they have had some amazing moments connecting with their PC in the privacy of their bedroom.

The PC laughs with you and not at you, no matter how stupid the thing you are watching is.

Their (the friend’s) eyes light up and they say “sure sounds great” to your net idea. They even start thinking of what videos they will have you watch. Both brains now thinking “FINALLY ALL THOSE AWESOME VIDEOS WILL BE SHARED!” You poor fools.

It plays out many different ways from here. There are some standards that the chaos follows though. You start prematurely laughing and being excited about the video while it is still buffering. They start prematurely laughing at the memory of the videos they plan to show you next. Neither of you will pay any attention to the other or what they are trying to show you. You both will become angry and think the other a fool. None of the videos will be as funny as when you are alone with the PC, or as funny as you remember for that matter. You will not completely finish a single video. It will not end well.

There may even be fighting, pushing, shoving, trying to get at the keyboard to type in that next precious web address. There will be plenty of ignoring. It will be absolute war. There will be no fun or laughing.

Eventually one will dominate. He/she will not listen to the suggestions of the other. She/he will assert the dominance of whatever is being shown. It gets ugly and stupid.

Your PC is just not a group activity.

With television, you are use to sharing. It is right out in the open. First thing most people see at your place. It is welcoming and has a prominent place in the LIVING ROOM. You let others bring things like VHS, DVD, and Blu Ray to watch on your TV. You plan out a day to watch some event on Pay Per View with a group and make sure to have the right food that everyone will like. You pause things nicely for people so that nothing is missed. You share popcorn.

You may even hand them the remote, or offer them the best seat in the house. If whatever is on TV isn’t as good as you, AND THEY, had hoped… you ask for their suggestions and they want your input as well.

Think about all of that.

Thus ends the heavily shortened and condensed version of what would have been a well thought out and interesting post.

Now that the post is done.
GO TO YOUTUBE!
DO IT NOW!
I DON’T CARE WHAT YOU THINK I SHOULD WATCH!
I DON’T CARE WHAT YOU WANT TO WATCH!
LOOK UP RODGER SWAN!
WATCH ALL OF HIS VIDEOS!
HE IS THE BEST THING ON YOUTUBE EVER!
HE IS A VERY INNOCENT AND HONEST MAN AND I WILL NOT HAVE YOU BAD MOUTHING HIM!
THE WORLD IS WORSE OFF WITHOUT HIM!
YOU WILL LIKE HIS VIDEOS!
YOU DO NOT GET A CHOICE IN THE MATTER!
RODGER SWAN’S VIDEOS ALL OF THEM! SHOULD BE ON DVD AND SHARED WITH THE WORLD I SWARE THEY SHOULD BE REQUIRED VIEWING FOR EVERYTHING WITH EYEBALLS!

Except spiders.
I hate spiders.

Seriously though. If you know of a way to get all of Rodger Swan’s videos on DVD please do it and or tell me and or send me copies. I seriously would treasure the DVDs and take very good care of them giving them prominent placement in my DVD collection. I would watch them a lot and get others to do so as well.

No joke. I need to find a way to get all his videos onto DVDs that I can watch.
