Build Your Own Flow

Most media, like television, used to be a kind of flow. You’d sit down, you’d turn it on and you’d watch. The reason advertising is completely broken is that the flow doesn’t exist anymore. There’s no prime time. There’s no such thing as must-see TV. Everyone’s composing their own flow. And once you start becoming […]

Pour en finir avec TQS

Si TQS ferme, de quelle créativité serons-nous privés? Nous serons privés du Loft et d’Elvis Gratton. C’est comme être privé du choléra et de la pollution.—Pour en finir avec TQS

Broadcasting Policy for a World of Abundance

They recommend dropping domestic genre protections, freeing up consumer choice by creating greater flexibility in program bundling, and removing some advertising restrictions. More controversially, they suggest re-thinking the simultaneous substitution rules, which they note results in Canadian broadcasters having their schedules largely dictated by the decisions south of the border. Although highly profitable, the rules […]

Care To Watch The Game Together?

Just called Videotron, I was trying to watch the game and the @$%#%# buffering problem I’ve been having for 2 weeks is at it’s worse. Guy on the line asks the security question and from there he can reset the terminal, watch what I’m watching and see the history of which channels I’ve been watching!! […]

The Next Jack?

I just finished watching last week’s 24, I think they might have just introduced the next Jack. One more season on Sutherland’s contract after this one (I think). After that if they need to they’ve got my boy Rick ‘Silver Spoons’ Schroder. Of course, they could just kill him tonight too…

F0cking Previews

[Warning, somewhat spoilery] Whatever happened to cliff hanging, suspense? Last week on 24 Jack was chained and being driven to his death. Now, obviously, we don’t really expect Jack to die, do we? They kill off important characters on the show but Jack? I’d be surprised. Doesn’t mean I don’t like the suspense though. So […]
