I’m back to doodling on the couch in an inexpensive but halfway decent sketchbook and watching my favorite streaming channel Tubi. Yes, Tubi is supported by advertising, but the commercials are a lot less obtrusive than the other streamers and … Continue reading
As I’ve said before, when I am sketching, I like to have noise in the background which is sometimes music but it’s usually the TV tuned to something that doesn’t require my strict attention. Trashy television shows and B movies … Continue reading
I’m writing this post to draw attention to a show of which I was completely unaware on a streaming platform that never held any appeal for me. The show is Chance and it is available on Hulu.

Pepe Le Pew — that’s why! Having heard that maladjusted moralists with way too much time on their hands have targeted the beloved cartoon character and are trying to ban him from future appearances as well as streaming platforms, I … Continue reading
I’m falling out of love with streaming. I’ve grown weary of a number of television streaming options and have pruned them from my monthly expenses. The free, ad supported streaming platforms occasionally offer a pleasant surprise, but the barrage of … Continue reading
